Came Upon a Midnight Clear
Blogtour , Bookteaser / November 22, 2017

About Came Upon a Midnight Clear Up-and-coming film producer Kyle Wakefield lives in the closet rather than risk the wrath of his influential, conservative parents. The only time he took a chance on love was a tempestuous teenage affair with Nathan Carnes. But when Nathan proved himself hell-bent on self-destruction and wound up in prison, Kyle closed off his heart. Almost a decade later, Kyle’s production partner hires Nathan’s stunt company, Second Chances, to work on a big-budget action film in London. Nate is floored by his explosive reunion with Kyle. But he sure as hell isn’t surprised that Kyle still treats their mutual needs—and Nate—like dirty little secrets. As the London holiday season casts its dazzling spell, the two men find themselves falling in love again. Kyle is one breathless kiss away from declaring himself to Nate—and to the world—but they cannot ignore secrets borne of youthful mistakes. To protect their bright new future, Kyle and Nathan will need all their passion and trust . . . and a little Christmas magic.

Pansies
Blogtour , Bookteaser / October 11, 2016

About Pansies Alfie Bell is . . . fine. He’s got a six-figure salary, a penthouse in Canary Wharf, the car he swore he’d buy when he was eighteen, and a bunch of fancy London friends. It’s rough, though, going back to South Shields now that they all know he’s a fully paid-up pansy. It’s the last place he’s expecting to pull. But Fen’s gorgeous, with his pink-tipped hair and hipster glasses, full of the sort of courage Alfie’s never had. It should be a one-night thing, but Alfie hasn’t met anyone like Fen before. Except he has. At school, when Alfie was everything he was supposed to be, and Fen was the stubborn little gay boy who wouldn’t keep his head down. And now it’s a proper mess: Fen might have slept with Alfie, but he’ll probably never forgive him, and Fen’s got all this other stuff going on anyway, with his mam and her flower shop and the life he left down south. Alfie just wants to make it right. But how can he, when all they’ve got in common is the nowhere town they both ran away from.

Rented Heart
Blogtour , Bookteaser / September 14, 2016

About Rented Heart Ex-surfer-turned-businessman Liam Mallaney moved back to Holkham, Norfolk, to mourn the loss of his husband. Grief and loneliness keep him a solitary figure, and he likes it that way. There’s no room in his broken heart for anything else. Rentboy Zac Payne left London and most of his demons behind, but he still only knows one way to make a living. When he spots Liam in a club one night, it seems he’s found his mark. But Liam proves nicer—and their connection far deeper—than he’d bargained for. Their arrangement quickly becomes too complicated for Zac, who has other things on his mind: namely his BFF and wayward flatmate, Jamie. Zac owes Jamie the world, and even as Jamie’s drug addiction destroys all they have, Zac won’t leave him behind. Besides, Liam knows nothing of Zac’s home life, too caught up in his own head to think much beyond the crazy heat he and Zac share. But when trouble comes to Zac’s door, putting his life in danger, Liam must set his grief and anger aside to pick up the pieces of Zac’s shattered heart and his own.

For a Rainy Afternoon
Bookreview / April 26, 2015

For a Rainy Afternoon by R.J. Scott is part of the Tales of the Curious Cookbook series. Its a series of so far six novels by different authors, but all with the same curious cookbook as a central theme. This is part 1 in the series. Robbie MacIntyre runs the small post office in some small town near London. Nothing exciting ever happens there and Robbie is some what bored. But then the owner of the post office dies and leaves the place to Robbie. Everything else is left to some American nephew no one ever heard of, Jason Young. Soon Jason comes to the village to inspect the place and Robbie immediately falls for the guy head over heels. In the house Jason finds a mysterious box containing several first editions and a cookbook. That is when the story really gets interesting. In my younger years I was a great fan of Agatha Christie stories, especially because they were set in a small English town. The town in this book some what reminds me of that. And of course I think England is a great country on its own. If the rest of the series is as good as…

Nothing Special
Bookreview / February 6, 2015

Nothing Special is so far the latest edition to the Nothing…  series by Jay Northcote.  So far this is my favorite one. In this story we meet Noah, an ordinary guy who works in a bookstore and has a major crush on a guy he sees every day in the subway. He doesn’t know anything about the guy, but he looks forward to meeting him every day. But how to get in touch with his dream man? Then a friend of Noah convinces him to do something very brave and he gets to talk to Sol, his dream guy. They hit it off straight away and want to try and make the record for the worlds longest first date. But still somewhere in the back of his mind, Noah thinks he is not good enough for Sol. Surely Sol could have anyone he wants. Will they stay together and will Noah deal with his fears? I really really hope Jay writes more books in this series, because I really like the stories. Guys who don’t think they are good enough, but learn to deal with fears in the best way possible. I really don’t like stories that are all about…
