Publisher: Island Tales Press
Cover Artist: Meredith Russell
Tony Porter and Marc Powell had lived in the same house for the past eight years, since their single parents moved in together. When Tony’s mother Marie and Marc’s father Dennis decide to tie the knot at last, it should be an occasion of great joy for everyone. Except all Marc can think about is having to spend the next two weeks with the young man he’s been in love with since he was sixteen.
Tony feels so torn about Marc coming home from college. He keeps telling himself that it’s wrong to feel this way about him. After all, in two weeks’ time they’ll be related. So when the two young men are thrown together to prepare for the wedding, tensions rise and discoveries are made.
It’s going to be a very long two weeks, and a wedding that no one will ever forget..
Cover: I love the cover of this book
Title: Its suits the story very well. Totally quirky.
Story: Simply put an OUTSTANDING love story.
The story is beautifully crafted and very well thought out. Marc is a young man that is in love with a man he believes he simply cannot have. Or can he?? Though Marc is “out” to his friends in London, he isn’t ready for his family to know. That brings hardships for him when he goes home to see his family. More importantly, seeing Tony. The man he has loved for years, silently.
Tony is in the same situation as Marc. He is in love with someone who, in his mind, he cannot have. Tony has the added angst of being unable to openly admit his sexuality.
The Author has crafted two souls, each very unique, and has written their love story. It is a story that will stay with me for a long time. Reading of them falling in love is simply amazing. It’s a love story we all would wish for, full of compassion and need.
Although their parents are getting married, they are not blood related so in the end there is nothing stopping these men finding love they both crave in one another. They are both conflicted and maybe they don’t make the brightest of judgements on how to act and react to situations, but we are all guilty in that department These men are human, and they do make mistakes.
K.C Wells has crafted to unique souls, and wrote their love story. A story that will stay with me for a long time. Reading them falling in love is simply amazing, It’s a love story we all would wish for, full of compassion and need. I have read many of K.C Wells books, but this has sored to the top of list as her favourites, if not one of the best love stories I have had the pleasure to read in a very long time.
I will most defiantly read this book again, we all need a little bit of what Marc and Tony found. Thank you K.C. Wells for bringing these men into my life.
“Given any more thought to telling Dad?” She stared at him levelly.
“Han,” he protested. He couldn’t think about this, not now.
Hannah wasn’t giving up. “Do you really think he’d react badly? ’Cause I don’t.”
Marc sighed. “You know it wouldn’t be a case of just telling Dad. Everyone would have to know. Let’s face it, the only reason you know is ’cause you found my stash of mags when you went rooting through my stuff. Even Marie knows better than to look under my bed.”
“I wasn’t ‘rooting’,” she said with indignation. “I was looking for something.”
“Yeah, like I said, rooting, under my bed.”
Hannah stilled. “Could Tony have found them? Would he have said something if he had?”
Marc had thought long and hard about this ever since that day two years ago when Hannah had come up to his room, holding a copy of Gay Times, and with eyes full of questions. “Yeah, he’d have said something.”
He’s not that good an actor. Tony couldn’t have hid his reaction for this long.
But he knew she had a point. He’d been living for a year in London as an out gay young man, and the thought of hiding his sexuality now he was home was anathema to him.
He could feel her gaze, as tangible as a touch.
“Okay, maybe you’re right. But I’m not going to do it before the wedding, all right? There’s already too much going on.”
She nodded. “I agree. It can wait. But when you do tell him, I’ll be with you, if you want.”
Bless you, sis. He chuckled. “I’m counting on it. Because it won’t just be Dad that I’ll be coming out to—it’ll be the whole family.”
Including my new stepbrother.
K.C. discovered erotic fiction in 2009, where the purchase of a ménage storyline led to the startling discovery that reading about men in love was damn hot. In 2012, arriving at a really low point in life led to the desperate need to do something creative. An even bigger discovery waited in the wings – writing about men in love was even hotter…
K.C. now writes full-time and is loving every minute of her new career.
The laptop still has no idea of what hit it… it only knows that it wants a rest, please. And it now has to get used to the idea that where K.C goes, it goes.
