Mrs. Shaw’s Club #2

mybook.to/WHADebook

Blurb:

High school freshman, Danny Burns, loves life, art, and boys. From the outside, he looks like a happy-go-lucky guy with no concerns. He blows off the bullies and he’s an amazing friend. What people don’t know is that he’s had a boyfriend since the summer, and when Danny decides being a secret isn’t enough for him and tries to end it, it’s not as easy as he expects.

High school freshman, Noah Glass, thinks he knows exactly who he is, what he wants, and where he’s going. Unfortunately, when the strict religious rules he’s grown-up with don’t line up with him being able to have friendships with people he cares about, he begins to question his own beliefs.

Guidance Counselor, Mrs. Shaw, formed a special club forty years ago. Each year, she handpicks twelve students to participate, but no one knows what they talk about, and former students never tell.

Danny and Noah are two of the chosen this year. When Mrs. Shaw partners them up, their lives begin to alter in ways that they couldn’t have imagined. While Danny is confronted with a stalking ex, Noah begins to question his values. As their friendship grows within the nurturing circle of Club Shaw, will that foundation be enough to get them through the troubles ahead? Will Noah be strong enough to set aside his preconceived notions and be there for Danny? Will Danny trust in Noah’s friendship and strength to help him move on from his ex to give the new guy Noah introduces him to a chance?

This is book two in the Mrs. Shaw’s Club series. We’ll continue to get glimpses into the lives of the students, and with each book, we’ll see a romance bloom.

This is a standalone, but more fun if you watch them all grow together through the year.

Excerpt

 *This guy… I don’t even know what to think of Danny. He’s too much, but he’s not. He’s too excited, too loud, too happy, too… just too everything. But yet, that’s exactly why I’m finding myself wanting to spend more and more time with him.

He makes life feel fun. I allow myself a little smile over how excited Danny is about suspenders, of all things, before glancing at Josh. Hmmm…apparently, he also likes how excited Danny is about suspenders. 

*Josh shakes his head from side to side with a scowl on his face. “No, we’re not doing that Danny. I’m not gonna lie to you and say I’m not scared to tell my parents, but Noah is my best friend, and he has my back.

“At some point we all have a decision to make, and this is mine. Doug mistreated you, and I’m not gonna be that guy. You deserve to have someone take you out, and I’d be proud if you let that someone be me.”

~ And the angels sing. ~

 *But, no, Doug’s pissed. Grabbing my sleeve, he keeps me from moving any farther and he’s back in my face.

“Where the hell do you think you’re going, church boy? You come in here threatening me. Then you trick me into thinking you’re into me and exposing my secret. And now you think you’re just gonna run out of here? And do what? Tell someone? I don’t think so.”

Without thinking— obviously—I spit in his face and scream, “Screw you!”

Angelbound Origins #6

Published by: Monster House Books

Publication date: September 17th 2019

Genres: Fantasy, Paranormal, Young Adult

Myla Lewis loves kicking demon ass.

Sadly, now that she’s the Great Scala as well as Queen of the demon hunting thrax, there’s no time to battle baddies.

Sure, it’s great to rule alongside her main squeeze Lincoln—and their baby Maxon is adorbs—but what about some demon killing fun?

Then Myla gets a chance to fight tons of evildoers, but it’s in the worst way imaginable. All the demon-hunting thrax disappear, except for Lincoln. Even Octavia and sweet baby Maxon vanish. With the demon hunters gone, the worldwide population of big bads goes berserk. Talk about a nightmare.

Turns out, Lucifer left behind another magickal trinket that’s causing trouble. This time, it’s his signet ring that has changed the past, preventing the thrax from ever organizing in the first place.

To bring back the thrax and their family, Myla and Lincoln must travel back in history—to the era called the Brutal Time—and try to convince the pre-thrax peoples to team up.

Trouble is, these folks already have a powerful leader, the Red Scourge, and that creep doesn’t want his people hunting down demons. Nope. The Red Scourge has only one goal.

Kill Myla and Lincoln, fast.

Where do you go when your home is no longer a safe place?

Alex is about to turn eighteen and is firmly in the closet. He’s been biding his time, waiting to escape to uni, and finally come out away from the oppressive influence of his homophobic father. When he flunks his exams, he’s stuck in the small town of Porthladock — and what’s worse is that he’s working for his dad. The only thing that makes it bearable is Cam.

Cam’s comfortable with his bisexuality, but he doesn’t broadcast it. Young, free, and single, his social life revolves around playing rugby and hanging out with his mates. He’s attracted to Alex, but with the six-year age gap, Cam’s wary of getting involved. Plus, he thinks Alex needs a friend more than he needs a lover, and as their friendship grows, Cam decides he’s not willing to risk ruining it for casual sex.

When Alex’s dad finds out about his sexuality, Alex is suddenly both jobless and homeless. He finds work at Rainbow Place, the local LGBT-friendly café and Cam lets Alex stay in his flat for a while. But Alex would rather be sleeping in Cam’s bed than on his sofa.

With them both living under one roof, their feelings for each other grow stronger, and the sexual tension is hard to ignore. Will giving in to it ruin their friendship and complicate things for Alex even more?

Although this book is part of a linked series, it has a satisfying happy ending, and can be enjoyed as a standalone.

 

Jay lives just outside Bristol in the West of England. He comes from a family of writers, but always used to believe that the gene for fiction writing had passed him by. He spent years only ever writing emails, articles, or website content.

One day, Jay decided to try and write a short story—just to see if he could—and found it rather addictive. He hasn’t stopped writing since.

Jay writes contemporary romance about men who fall in love with other men. He has five books published by Dreamspinner Press, and also self-publishes under the imprint Jaybird Press. Many of his books are now available as audiobooks.
