Why yes, it must be that time of year! I can’t believe it’s been almost a year since this one came out as an ebook. I remember the launch date was two days after I’d moved house. Yep, that was fun…
Anyway, here is a more sedate celebration of the release of the paperback. It’s on offer over at Samhain at the moment, but I imagine most of you people read things in ebook format like I do. So much more convenient! Still, there’s nothing quite like having a real paper book in your hand. I’ll keep you all posted of any giveaways for a signed copy. I’ve just put one contest in my email newsletter, so if you’re not yet signed up, why not? (the sign-up form is down right at the bottom of every page on the site, by the way)
And now, for the book:
The best things in life aren’t free…they’re freely given.
Ben Lethbridge doesn’t have many vices left. After raising his little sister to adulthood, he wasted no time making up for the youth he lost to responsible parenting. Two years of partying it up—and ignoring his diabetes—has left him tethered to a home dialysis regimen.
He can do his job from his flat, fortunately, but most of his favourite things are forbidden. Except for DVD porn…and fantasizing over Ollie, the gorgeous, purple-haired skateboarder who delivers it.
Their banter is the highlight of Ben’s lonely day, but his illness-ravaged body is the cruel reality that prevents him from believing they’ll do anything more than flirt. Not to mention the age gap. Still, Ben figures there’s no harm in sprucing himself up a bit.
Then one day, a package accidentally splits open, revealing Ben’s dirty little secret…and
an unexpected connection that leaves him wondering if he’s been reading Ollie wrong all this time. There’s only one way to find out: risk showing Ollie every last scar. And hope “far from perfect” is good enough for a chance at love.
Warning: Contains superhero porn comics and a cute, accident-prone delivery guy with colour-changing hair. Readers may experience coffee cravings, an unexpected liking for bad mullets, and the urge to wrap Ollie up and take him home.
