Blurb

Former CIA operative, Damon Thorne, is a fixer. He cleans up messes other people make of their lives to forget the wreckage his own has become. Whether it means retrieving a drug addict whose family is being blackmailed or rescuing a furball who’s the subject of a custody dispute, Damon just gets things done.

When the job means kidnapping the wild son of a prominent Senator in an election year, it should come with hazard pay.

From the day Jude Chenoweth was born into wealth and position, his father has groomed him to follow in his footsteps. Jude has other plans. Openly gay and infamous, all he wants to do is live his life, create his art, and never settle down.

Life has a way of kicking butts, even the sexy ones. Thrown together in a situation neither wanted, Damon and Jude must now decide how to move forward. Jude knows something is wrong when he gazes into Damon’s haunted brown eyes and Damon recognizes there’s much more to Jude than the caricature he shows the world.

This might be the beginning of a journey… or an incredibly stupid mistake. Perhaps working together will help them process their own demons. Whatever happens, neither of them believes Damon’s assignments will always come with a heaping helping of bad guys.

Not always… right?

Excerpt

“Have you heard from your father?” Cooper’s father was Brad’s campaign manager and had been since he started out in California politics over twenty years ago.

Cooper’s face lost its smile immediately as he nodded. “I did. He says the family is expecting you to play much more of a role in the campaign as we draw closer to November. Next week there’s supposed to be an interview after his campaign rally in Sacramento.”

Jude’s lips thinned. If there was one thing he could point to that he hated more than anything in this world, it was playing a role in his father’s political campaigns.

“Right. I’m certain Brad’s republican colleagues would just love it if I showed up on stage with my father and told them what I really think of their platform. Holt should do the interview.”

Cooper popped another handful of edamame into his mouth, chewing. He swallowed and grinned at him. “The interview is with the leader of the Log Cabin Republicans. They want an idea of the republican platform from a gay man’s point of view.”

Jude’s jaw dropped open and he folded his arms. “Like hell! Just because I’m gay doesn’t mean I’m going to kowtow to those guys.”

Cooper grinned wider. “Look at it this way. You’re like a zoo animal. The gay son of a republican senator from a Liberal state. Who knew you’d be popular enough to be interviewed by Sally Sly? Just think of the “cause”, Jude.” Cooper batted his eyelashes in a pleading way that made Jude burst out laughing.

“Fuck Sally Sly. I’m not sitting in a room with that republican shrew for one minute. Did you see her article on marriage equality before SCOTUS ruled on Obergefell v. Hodges? Her views are just short of Fascist.”

“Maybe an interview with Sally Sly will have its benefits,” Cooper said with a little shrug. “I’ll tell dad to write into the contract that you like getting pegged. Maybe you’ll enjoy a strap-on. You’ll never know until you try, babe.”

Jude was still laughing when the waitress walked over with a tray and began setting down the obscene number of rolls that Cooper had ordered. He accepted his own volcano roll and seafood salad, leaning over to take a long whiff of it. It smelled lovely and his own stomach rumbled the moment he caught the delicious scent. They both dug into their food and ate for a few minutes before Jude brought the subject up again.

“Your dad asked you to tell me about it, right? My father was too afraid to ask me himself?” Jude pinned Cooper with a hard stare and his best friend shrugged.

This utterly charming romance from Roan stole my heart

53038198._SY475_Better Than People by Roan Parrish

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

That was soooooo good! I’m not sure I can quite articulate why I loved this book so much but I did.

Maybe it’s because I love seeing happy endings for characters that don’t fit into the ‘square jawed alpha’ stereotype.

Maybe it’s because it’s a book chock full of different types of love, love that persists against the odds and love that provides a bedrock of support for the people it encompasses.

Roan has such a talent at writing outside the norm.

Her characters have an otherworldly way to them at times, here it’s not as obvious but both Jack and Simon follow non-traditional character tropes even while they skirt the edges of convention.

Jack is an artist, but he’s not a tortured one, he’s struggling with the very real anger that comes with a betrayal of trust.

Simon’s anxieties aren’t irrational or treated as a joke, he’s managed to make a path through life for himself to the best of his ability and Waugh the help of his awesome grandma Jean.

I also loved Jack’s brother Charlie, I felt so much love for how much he’d sacrificed. I’d love to read his story and have him find a happy ending too please Roan!

That the majority of the narrative concerns just a cast of two, and a multitude of wonderful animals, but never feels claustrophobic, is testament to the author.

I also very much appreciated, in a book where one of the character’s anxieties paralyse him on occasion, that miscommunication was not a major plot point.

I also appreciated the cameo appearance in reference only of Corbin Wale 😁

So, all in all, just a cracking good read.

The truth is harder to hide when someone sharp starts poking around.

Grant Eastbrook hit the ground crawling after his wife kicked him out. Six months later, in Seattle without a job or a place to live, he escapes to the woods of nearby Vashon Island to consider his options. When he’s found sleeping outdoors by a cheerful man who seems bent on irritating him to death, Grant’s plans to resuscitate his life take a peculiar turn.

Oliver Rossi knows how to keep his fears at bay. He’s had years of practice. As a local eccentric and artist, he works from his funky home in the deep woods, where he thinks he has everything he needs. Then he rescues an angry man from a rainy ditch and discovers a present worth fighting the past for.

Amid the buzz of high summer, unwelcome attraction blooms on a playing field of barbs, defenses, and secrets.

Excerpt

GRANT

Grocery bags thumping against my calves, I’d trudged half a mile down Southwest Bank Road before I got a ride from the young guy, who took me all the way to Mitch’s driveway.

“Best of luck,” he said before he drove off.

Finally. Silence.

Well, not exactly silence. Birds twittered. A breeze sang through the hemlock and pine trees. My feet crunched on the gravel.

It was a long driveway.

My shoulders hurt from all the hauling. I prayed the cabin had a bathtub. A soak and a meal would go a long way toward rebooting my brain. I’d spend what remained of the afternoon in contemplation of my situation. If my crap cell phone could pick up a signal, and if I had enough credit left on my pay-as-you-go phone plan, I’d start a job search. I didn’t expect it to take long to find a new job. All I required was The Zone and enough money to keep my ass out of a homeless shelter. On the other hand, I was a thirty-eight-year-old underachiever who’d been suspended from a menial job and then quit, so maybe the ship of employability had sailed without me.
