Blurb

Damon Thorne, former CIA operative, is now living with Jude Chenoweth, his new boyfriend. The sexy graphic designer is handsome as hell and Damon can’t get enough of him. Unfortunately, his life as a “cleaner” always seems to get in the way. At least Jude is at his side these days, helping out on an odd job here or there.

Jude finds his new life with Damon thrilling. If it’s not rescuing a teen from child traffickers, it’s stealing adult toys from a notorious sex club. While Jude struggles to stay out of the limelight, Damon battles with his own demons, trying to reconcile a heartbreaking past.

A mandatory trip to New York turns into a weekend on the Harlem blues scene and a party with New York high society, ending in near disaster. To top it all off, a deliberate poisoning, a pissed off “force of nature” in stilettos, and a half-blind money launderer confirm there’s trouble brewing and only the beginning of their problems.

When an old acquaintance turns up with a tale of betrayal and a warning of imminent danger, Jude and Damon go on the offense. Fortunately for the two men, they unexpectedly have a team of warriors at their backs.

Join Damon and Jude for one thrill ride after another in the sequel to Clean Up on Aisle Mine.

Excerpt

“You are much more than work! You always were, Jude,” Damon insisted, dropping his hands from Jude’s arms and deliberately stepping around him to walk over to his coat where it lay on the bed. “I love you. I’ve told you that but I don’t know what I have to do to prove it to you,” he said as he straightened and began pulling on the coat. “My past doesn’t matter. I’ve told you that a thousand times. Do I ask you about all the men you’ve fucked?”

He had a point. Jude couldn’t very well argue the point when it had more than a little truth in it. Jude hadn’t fucked every guy he met but he’d had a revolving door in his bedroom for years before meeting Damon. In fact, he hadn’t kept anyone around before.

“You’re right,” Jude said, sighing. “I’m a total asshole.” Jude walked over to him and took him by both cheeks as he stared at him. “I’m a total dick tonight. I’m really trying not to make excuses but I think I was more upset about your disappearance than I wanted to admit. Sometimes I think I’ve missed so much of your life and I can never claim that part of you even though you always tell me that it was your past. Please forgive me. I’m not one to throw stones.”

“Me either.” Damon shrugged and leaned down to kiss Jude. The kiss wasn’t full of the usual warmth Jude had come to expect. It ended way too soon but he went with it anyway. When Damon turned away and grabbed his room key off the table before turning back, Jude felt like the whiskey in his stomach was going to come back up.

“Come on. We’re super late already,” Damon said flatly.

“Okay,” Jude said, resisting the urge to reach up and run his fingers through his hair and pull all the strands out of their tie. Instead, he followed Damon out of the suite and let the door slam behind them, wondering what the hell had just happened.

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.
