Dawn Reviews In Darkest Peru by Louise Lyons, released on 13th February 2015, by Wayward Ink Publishing and is 51 pages approx.
Shy and geeky Rhys White, has recently been ditched by his boyfriend of five years. On top of that he’s been made redundant from his job as a computer programmer.
Tired of being boring and unadventurous, he throws caution to the winds and buys a plane ticket to Peru.
Rhys’ adventure in Peru starts out well, but then disaster strikes. All of his belongings are stolen. Everything is gone—passport, wallet, phone, clothing, the lot.
Stranded in Cuzco, not too far from the famous Machu Picchu, Rhys tries to find someone to help him.
He’s about to give up, when a sexy Brazilian named Rafael, comes to his rescue…
I loved this book 🙂
You really do feel for Rhys, as his boyfriend of five years tell him it is over and moves out and then he is made redundant from his job. He decides that the best thing to do, is to take himself on holiday, and a childhood toy has him deciding to go to Peru.
He is wondering if he should get the first flight back home, but decides that he will go and visit some of the places he has seen in his trusty guidebook. Things take a turn for the worse, when the bus he uses to travel around Peru is robbed, and his rucksack is stolen so he is left with nothing at all.
Feeling totally alone, and unable to go to the British Consulate as it is the weekend, he literally runs into Rafael, who offers to help him.
Then things really start to look up for Rhys, thanks to Rafael, and the pages get rather hot in places!! You see Rhys change from being very shy, to being more confident. When the holiday comes to an end, Rafael takes him back to the airport, but you can really notice the change in Rhys. Plus he goes home with some wonderful memories from his impromptu holiday.
His arrival home has another surprise in store, but I let you read the book to find out what happens………
Louise Lyons comes from a family of writers. Her mother has a number of poems published in poetry anthologies, her aunt wrote poems for the Church, and her grandmother sparked her inspiration with tales of fantasy. Louise first ventured into writing short stories at the grand old age of eight, mostly about little girls and ponies. She branched into romance in her teens, and MM romance a few years later, but none of her work saw the light of day until she discovered Fan Fiction in her late twenties.
Posting stories based on some of her favorite movies, provoked a surprisingly positive response from readers. This gave Louise the confidence to submit some of her work to publishers, and made her take her writing “hobby” more seriously.
Louise lives in the UK, about an hour north of London, with a mad Dobermann, and a collection of tropical fish and tarantulas. She works in the insurance industry by day, and spends every spare minute writing. She is a keen horse-rider, and loves to run long distance. Some of her best writing inspiration comes to her, when her feet are pounding the open road. She often races into the house afterward, and grabs pen and paper to make notes.
Louise has always been a bit of a tomboy, and one of her other great loves is cars and motorcycles. Her car and bike are her pride and joy, and she loves to exhibit the car at shows, and take off for long days out on the bike, with no one for company but herself.
