READ MY REVIEW

Copy of Charles

Blurb

Opposites attract in this low-angst romance filled with British snark and humour.

Life should be a breeze for a playboy like Charles Heppel. As the third son of an earl, he lives for the moment, partying and playing. Settling down isn’t for him. Not when London is full of beautiful men who he hasn’t one-and-done yet.

To escape his family’s nagging, Charles applies for a temp job that matches his playful skill set. A role in a Cornish classroom could be his until the summer, if Charles meets two conditions: he must move in with the headmaster’s best friend, and teach him to be happy.

Living with Hugo should be awkward. Charles is a free spirit, but Hugo’s a man of faith, with morals. A man who almost took holy orders before disaster changed his direction. Only far from being a chore, Charles finds that making Hugo happy soon becomes his passion.

Together, they share physical and emotional first times. Ones that change Charles, touching his soul. He wants Hugo for longer than they have left, but learning to love with his heart, not just his body, will take a leap of faith from Charles — in himself as well as Hugo.

New from Con Riley, Charles: Learning to Love is the first novel in a series based at Glynn Harber, a very special boarding school set in England’s glorious Cornwall.

This shared-world series starts with Charles and Hugo, but each book follows a different couple in their own standalone novel, with a fulfilling happily ever after.

About The Author

Copy of con riley avi copy

CON RILEY lives on the wild and wonderful Welsh coast, with her head in the clouds and her feet in the ocean.

Injury curtailed her enjoyment of outdoor pursuits, so writing fiction now fills her free time. Love, loss, and redemption shape her romance stories, and her characters are flawed in ways that make them live and breathe.

When not people-watching or reading, she spends time staring at the sea from her kitchen window. If you see her, don’t disturb her — she’s probably thinking up new plots.

Charles and HHH make me heart happy and theirs is a beautiful romance

Charles coverCharles: Learning to Love by Con Riley

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Charles and HHH (His Holy Hotness) make me heart happy. They’re such a study in contrasts and neither of them is expecting the other at the point their lives intersect.

If you’ve read His Haven then you’ve already met Charles (and Hugo at a distance) and should already be utterly in love with him, because he is just the most huggable character Con’s ever written.

He’s risen above some almost insurmountable odds with his particular type of dyslexia/low working memory, and he’s found a career at which he excels, if only his family could see it too.

Hugo’s having a crisis, not of faith, that is unshakeable, but he’s suffered a real physical and mental blow to where he thought his life was taking him.

This book is not religious, even though at one point Hugo thought he was on the way to being a Padre in the British Army.

It’s about faith, both personal and in a wider understanding of how our lives change when we least expect it. It’s powerful and profoundly moving when both Charles and Hugo come to realise that the journey they’re taking might not be where they were originally heading.

When the two meet, it sets them on a path which will make you smile, make you cry (even me!), have you desperately turning the pages because it couldn’t really take such a turn and everything not end up perfectly right?!

On the way you’ll meet another bunch of wonderful characters, be introduced to some of the men who will be appearing in the other two books in this series, and you’ll find that God moves in mysterious ways 😉😁

As ever my disclaimer, I alpha read this book for Con and so you can blame me for any bits you might not like 😎 but I really hope you don’t find any because this book is the very definition of beautiful.

Excerpt

Josh POV

“Okay,” I said, sliding onto the plastic bench as Aaron played with the console to input our names. “I know what we should bet.”

Aaron smirked. “What?”

“Well, we’re here for three games, right? So I feel like there has to be a prize for each game and a grand prize. And maybe mini prizes… or forfeits.”

“That sounds fair,” Aaron said, looking through the row of balls and testing them. “If I win a game, you have to do whatever I want for a night. And if I win overall,”—he thought for a second, his grin widening—“you have to admit, in public, that I’m the best chef you’ve ever worked with.”

I laughed. “Seriously? Okay, well if I win one game, you have to fuck me however I want. And if I win two or more games, then you have to let me fuck you.”

Aaron’s eyes went wide, but he didn’t automatically object. That was interesting. He’d never bottomed for me before, and now I wanted a go at his ass more than anything. But that wasn’t all I wanted. “And if I win overall, then you have to admit, in public, in front of people—in fact, you have to do it in the middle of the next Sunday lunch service we’re both on—that I’m the best chef you’ve ever worked with and that you’d be lost without me.”

Aaron stared, then he burst out laughing. The sound was rich and loud, and it filled my heart with such joy I thought I might burst. “Oh, it’s fucking on,” he said, picking up a bright yellow ball. I saw fiery determination burning in his eyes. “And one more thing. Every time you get a gutter ball, you have to give me a blow job. Because clearly you suck, so you might as well put that skill to better use.”

I snorted. “Fine. But you have to do the same for me. Now stop putting off your inevitable loss and bowl.”
