Shameless Recommendation

Solange Gay Rom Mini Banner

This book is just a giant pile of Awwww... I mean, the grief is so real I felt for Stuart. He's in a dark place and he wants to pretend he's okay with it, but he's not really. So when Paul comes along and turns his world upside down all over again, I was clutching my pearls and rooting for them from the first time they meet. A fairly short read, but lovely, with a great, humorous tone to it. [August 2014]

Publisher Synopsis

via Amazon

Stuart Collins’s life might as well have ended a year ago when his partner died in a car crash. Even Stuart’s widowed father has found new love with an old friend, Isabel Franklin, so why can’t Stuart be bothered to try?

Then he gets a phone call from Isabel’s son, Paul, who wants to check out whether or not Mr. Collins is good enough for his mother. During dinner together, though, they end up checking out each other. Trouble is, Paul’s got a boyfriend—or maybe he doesn’t, since the boyfriend’s supposedly giving Paul the push by ignoring him. Or maybe Paul just wants to have his cake and eat it too.

Honesty with each other is the only way to move forward. But maybe honesty with themselves is what they really need.

[su_quote]Paul was pleased to see Stuart laugh–he’d been worried there’d be tears, and he hated to see men crying, except on the rugby pitch during the national anthems. That was natural.[/su_quote]

[su_quote]”You’ve done this before,” he said, as they came up for air.
“Once or twice.” Paul’s forehead rubbed along his. “Done some other things too. No complaints yet.”[/su_quote]

[su_quote]”No, you first. I’ll wait. I want to be able to concentrate on looking at your face when you come. I want to know I’ve made you happy.”
Stuart could understand that sentiment, if he could understand anything at all in that moment. “You won’t need to see my face. It’ll be all over your hand.”[/su_quote]

GENRE

Though Solange has moved on from Shameless Book Club and is living somewhere in Europe, we're gladly keeping her recommendations alive and published because they were just that good. --- Solange reads and writes gay romance like it’s her job — because it is. She likes her heroes and heroines tortured and horny, her plots juicy and riddled with angst, and rarely passes up the opportunity to add in some hurt and comfort. When she’s not reading or writing, Solange rides horses, hikes around Michigan’s plentiful lakes or whizzes down mountains with a snowboard to her feet. She’s a speed-junky, a caffeine addict and a dog lover. If you’d like to get in touch, email her here. She doesn’t bite, unless that floats your boat.
