The World According to Liam__ jpg

Blurb

When you see the world through the eyes of a child, there’s magic everywhere.

And crumbs. Lots of crumbs…

But that’s not going to stop Mike and Bryn Kneller from traveling with their nephew Liam at their side. Not that deciding to take the lad to visit Bryn’s homeland was an easy decision for the two recently wedded men despite how much they adore the boy. This trip was supposed to be a romantic anniversary trip after all.

However, life, as it does, tends to lead us down a path of its own choosing. Combining an unexpected announcement from a family member with the not-so-subtle pleadings of Bryn’s parents, the decision was made. With lots of hand sanitizer and a heaping helping of patience, the journey begins, leading Bryn and Mike to discover a great deal about themselves, their marriage, and their plans for the future.

HAA ebook cover

Blurb

I’d craved an ending for as long as I could remember. An ending to the crippling hurt, the blinding rage, and this sense of confusion and loss. I didn’t know who I was. I had no identity. I just hated.

Until her.

With one small flame after another, she lit up my path toward redemption and showed me a life worth living. It was how our love story began—without fanfare. Just a flicker in the dark.

Excerpt

Darius laughed. “Maybe not, but never underestimate a survivor.”

Survivor. I wasn’t sure I’d use that word to describe myself.

“It all depends on how we deal with trauma,” he said. Or slurred. “You can be a runner—most of us are, to an extent. It’s ingrained in us to try to escape trauma. But real runners…they reach a whole new level.” He exhaled some smoke. “You can be a fighter. That’s me. Fighters can be good—but they also carry a shitload of anger and rarely know what to do with it. We’re cocky sons’a bitches too.”

“No argument.” I smirked wryly.

“Then there’s you.” He threw an arm around my shoulders and nudged me back toward the bar. “Even survivors have limits, but you can take more shit than anyone. To others, you come across as a bottomless pit. Regardless of what life throws at you, you keep getting up in the morning. You get up after every fight, you get up after every blow you’re dealt.” He took a deep pull from his smoke before throwing it away. Then he patted my chest. “That’s why I know you won’t use that sweet 686 that you’ve hidden in your towels in your bathroom upstairs.”

Fuck. I swallowed hard against a bout of nausea. With those words, I sobered up.

He formed a gun with his fingers and pressed them to my temple. “It goes against your nature to stop breathing, my friend.”

About The Author

I’m often awkwardly silent or, if the topic interests me, a chronic rambler. In other words, I can discuss writing forever and ever. Fiction, in particular. The love story—while a huge draw and constantly present—is secondary for me, because there’s so much more to writing romance fiction than just making two (or more) people fall in love and have hot sex.

There’s a world to build, characters to develop, interests to create, and a topic or two to research thoroughly.

Every book is a challenge for me, an opportunity to learn something new, and a puzzle to piece together. I want my characters to come to life, and the only way I know to do that is to give them substance—passions, history, goals, quirks, and strong opinions—and to let them evolve.

I want my men and women to be relatable. That means allowing room for everyday problems and, for lack of a better word, flaws. My characters will never be perfect.

Wait…this was supposed to be about me, not my writing.

I’m a writey person who loves to write. Always wanderlusting, twitterpating, kinking, cooking, baking, and geeking. There’s time for hockey and family, too. But mostly, I just love to write.

Perfect intro to this new expanded World of True North from Sarina

ROOMMATERoommate by Sarina Bowen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This standalone book is the perfect introduction to the new wider World of True North which is coming soon.

Sarina’s duo Him/Us with Elle Kennedy were two of the first books I read in this genre and Wesmie remain one of my favourite couples.

I’ve not read any of her MF books though and yet I never felt lost at any point while reading Roommate.

The story here is a familiar one, an out and proud guy falling for a closeted man but there’s more of an interesting back story dating back to their time at school.

There’re other tensions outside of the relationship as well, which help keep the narrative ticking and overall I was engaged throughout in the journey Kieran and Roddy take to happiness.

One thing I appreciated a lot was that there was no unnecessary drama or angsting just to add plot points.

There are moments when both men’s histories plays a role in them not opening up in a beneficial way, but they were totally understandable.

I’m very much looking forward to reading the rest of the LGBTQ series, which will centre around a bar called Vino & Veritas.
