red currant wine ebook

Blurb

No matter how far you go, love will always lead you home again.

The world has changed quite a bit since Carl Cimino was a young man in Port Plechard. The small Connecticut coastal town once had everything that he held dear: his family, his friends, his hockey team, his school, and his first love, Mike Rinnert.

Back then gay boys didn’t parade along the rocky shores in bright rainbow swim trunks. They hid their shame then moved away or married a nice girl and pretended to be happy. After a dismal marriage attempt and a lackluster playing career that ended with an equally unsatisfying coaching job, Carl is called back to Port Plechard to attend Mike’s funeral and swears that he’s just seen a ghost.

Either that or he’s had one too many sips of his father’s homemade wine. He soon discovers that the spirit hovering around Mike’s grave isn’t a phantom at all, it’s Tigh, Mike’s much younger brother. Tigh is nearly an exact replica of young Mike right down to his dark sensual eyes, wavy hair, and lips that beg to be kissed.

The two men are drawn to each other immediately, but there’s more than one hurdle to overcome: a sizeable age difference, small-town gossip, personal demons, family problems, and a hurricane just to name a few.

Bossy Cover

Blurb

No names, no details, no complications.

Michael Pietersen isn’t up for complications. He’s one of Sydney’s fastest-moving career-focused corporate realtors, and the only thing he has time for is one-night stands with zero fuss.

Bryson Schroeder’s back home from two years overseas with plans to leave his family’s hotel empire and begin his own business ventures. Out with his friends to celebrate his return, he sees a gorgeous blond man across the bar, and with barely a smile and a raised eyebrow, they leave together for a night of incredible chemistry.

But the rules are clear: no names, no details, no complications.

But one night becomes one more night, and eventually the arrangement suits them both for weeks . . . until their professional and personal worlds collide. With their hearts already on the line, Michael and Bry need to decide just how complicated they want to get.

About The Author

N.R. Walker is an Australian author, who loves her genre of gay romance. She loves writing and spends far too much time doing it, but wouldn’t have it any other way.

She is many things: a mother, a wife, a sister, a writer. She has pretty, pretty boys who live in her head, who don’t let her sleep at night unless she gives them life with words.

She likes it when they do dirty, dirty things… but likes it even more when they fall in love.

She used to think having people in her head talking to her was weird, until one day she happened across other writers who told her it was normal.

She’s been writing ever since…

This would make a brilliant romcom

Bossy CoverBossy by N.R. Walker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is an absolute classic N.R. contemporary romance, filled with humour and heat.

I loved the Fourth Wall introduction to the book which we hear from Michael, the Mr Bossy of the title.

It acts as a sort of Prologue, it’s a bit like the equivalent of a narrator’s voiceover giving the reader the pertinent facts before the story begins.

I’m sure some people won’t be keen but, for me, bracketing the main elements with Michael’s words direct to the reader really worked.

It set the scene for what turns into an absolute belter of a contemporary romcom which would make a brilliant film.

From the moment our two guys meet, it’s clear the “casual sex once a week” arrangement isn’t going to happen.

They just click. The sex is on fire, definitely one of Nic’s hottest books, but it’s also surprisingly emotional from the off too. They connect in mind and spirit as well as physically.

With a bunch of interesting tension points coming from external sources, it makes the romance the prime focus without any overly dramatic plot points chucked in.

I would have liked to see another scene with them and Michael’s family, the brief one we get is hilarious, and my only other comment would be that I felt both read slightly older than their ages (26 for Bryson, two years older for Michael).

But that’s not to say it spoiled anything because it didn’t. I liked their maturity, and it didn’t feel out of character.

With a smashing group of friends and a very solidly Aussie setting, this one was a delight.
