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.

Review – 4*

Alex and Cam were introduced towards the end of Rainbow Place and I was hoping we’d get their story next.

This is an enjoyable slow burn romance and a coming of age story. The two men are attracted to each other from the word go, but Cam soon puts the brakes on any intimate relationship when he discovers Alex’s controlling father is also the homophobic politician who caused a lot of the disruption in book 1. There’s plenty of UST between these guys as they attempt to remain friends. Alex also has the worry of his future education, his job prospects and his bigoted parents. Cam eventually provides a safe place for Alex, as do their friends at the Rainbow Place cafe. There’s some sweet moments, a few sexy scenes, and several episodes that will make you laugh out loud.

Blurb

Everyone deserves a second chance.

Nate and his teenage daughter need a fresh start, so they move back to the village where he grew up. Nate’s transgender, and not used to disclosing his history, so it’s hard living where people knew him before. When Nate reconnects with Jack—his best friend from school and unrequited crush—his feelings return as strong as ever.

Jack’s returned home to get his life in order after an addiction to alcohol caused him to lose everything: his job, his driver’s licence, and nearly his life. He’s living with his parents, which is less than ideal, but rekindling his friendship with Nate—or Nat as Jack once knew him—is an unexpected benefit of being back home. Jack is amazed by Nate’s transformation, and can’t deny his attraction. Trying for more than friendship might ruin what they already have, but the chemistry between them is undeniable.

Doubting his feelings are reciprocated, Nate fears he’s risking heartbreak. Jack’s reluctance to tell his parents about their relationship only reinforces Nate’s misgivings. With both their hearts on the line and their happiness at stake, Jack needs to make things right, and Nate has to be prepared to give him a second chance.

 

Review

A great start to a new series. It was both intriguing and inspiring. I liked the set up in this Cornish community, the emergence of the new cafe/bar, and the introduction of the key players who will no doubt play a role in future stories.

I particularly liked the two main characters, Seb and Jason, and how they moved from their initial attraction to flirting to f-buddies to a relationship. There were some super hot scenes between these guys.

Jason’s insecurity and struggle with his sexuality provided some angst as did the negative feedback the cafe received from a few narrow-minded locals. I think the conflict between Seb and the haters, and the one between Seb and Jason was nicely done. I loved how both were resolved.

I always enjoy reading Jay Northcote’s well-written stories. His Housemates series is a favourite of mine with the six varied storylines and the six pairs of fabulous characters. I think the Rainbow Place series has the potential of developing along these lines. I’m certainly looking forward to seeing Seb and Jason again.

Blurb

Ryan isn’t looking for a relationship with a guy—and Johnny isn’t looking for a relationship at all.

Ryan’s always been attracted to tall, leggy blondes—normally of the female variety. When Johnny catches his eye at a party, Ryan’s interest is piqued even though he’s never been with a guy before. The attraction is mutual, and the amazing night that follows opens Ryan’s eyes to his bisexuality.

Experience has taught Johnny that love hurts. Staying single is safer, and there’s no need for complicated relationships when hooking up is easy. When he moves in next door to Ryan, they’re both interested in picking up where they left off, and it seems like an ideal arrangement: convenient, mutually satisfying, and with no strings attached.

Despite their best intentions to keep things casual, they develop an emotional connection alongside the physical one. Both begin to want more from the relationship but are afraid to admit it. If they’re going to work things out, they need to start being honest—first with themselves, and then with each other.

Although this book is part of the Housemates series, it has new main characters, a satisfying happy ending, and can be read as a standalone.

Review

4.5*

Another fab story from Jay.

I’ve thoroughly enjoyed each of the books in this series and the variety of characters that Jay creates. His stories always gives me the warm fuzzy feels that I crave from M/M romances and this story worked well for me. It was also great to catch glimpses of the other couples in the student houses and see they’re still happy and together.

Ryan and Johnny were introduced in the previous book with hints that there was something going on between them, and there’s a sort of recap of their first meeting at the beginning of this story. Ryan explores his bi-curious side by hooking up with Johnny, the gorgeous, leggy, eyeliner-wearing, androgynous blond.

They continue with no strings hookups once they become neighbours. It’s all about the sex and the moment, so they don’t spend much time talking or really getting to know each other well. We are treated to some super hot scenes, some a little kinky, each time they meet up.

Ryan is still coming to terms with his bisexuality and Johnny is reluctant to risk his heart again after being hurt in the past. They are sexually compatible and their arrangement is convenient for them. Except feelings do develop on both sides. It takes time for them to truly admit it to themselves and neither are in a position to tell the other as these feelings grow. Wrongly assuming the other doesn’t want anything more than sex, they are reluctant to be the one to talk about all this. Yes, it causes problems and some lovely angst in the story because of their lack of communication, but that happens in real life. Many people keep their thoughts to themselves and just go along with the status quo. Personally, I loved the tinge of jealousy Ryan exhibited when he saw Johnny with another guy. I didn’t take it as cheating because they weren’t in an agreed relationship at that point.

The resolution is great and the epilogue gives a lovely happy ending for the couple. I was left wanting more ‘boyfriend’ time and to see them getting to know each other more. I was also hoping for more ‘pink’ episodes after the earlier deliciously steamy one.

A highly recommended story. It’s well written, quick-paced, super hot, and with a little angst.

Review ~ Starting from Scratch

Title: Starting from Scratch

Author: Jay Northcote

Publisher: Jaybird Press (self published)

Length: 57,000 words approx

Genre: Contemporary m/m romance/erotica, transgender, new adult

Cover Artist: Garrett Leigh

Release Date: Wednesday 12th April 2017

Series info: Housemates #5

 

The Housemates Series is a collection of standalone stories set around a student house in Britain.

Each book focuses on new characters, with themes of self-discovery and sexual awakening.

 

 

Starting over isn’t easy, but Ben is ready to live his life as the man he was always meant to be.

Ben is transgender and back at university after hormone treatment and chest surgery. His new housemates have no idea about his history and Ben would prefer to keep it that way. He’s starting from scratch and his life is finally on track, except in the romance department. The idea of dating guys as a guy is exhilarating but terrifying, because if Ben wants a boyfriend he’ll have to disclose his secret.

Sid is drawn to Ben from the moment they meet. He normally gets what he wants—in the short term at least. Ben’s guarded at first, and Sid’s not used to guys rejecting his advances. He eventually charms his way through Ben’s defences and helps Ben on his journey of sexual awakening.

It doesn’t matter to Sid that Ben is trans. He’s attracted to the whole person, and isn’t worried about what is—or isn’t—in Ben’s pants. They’re good together, and both of them are falling hard and fast, but Ben’s insecurities keep getting in the way. If Sid can convince Ben he’s committed, will Ben finally be able to put his heart on the line?

Although this book is part of the Housemates series, it has new main characters, a satisfying happy ending, and can be read as a standalone.

 

 5*

I’ve been a fan of this fabulous series from the start and Starting From Scratch is another great installment. Each story features ordinary young men who are exploring their sexuality and entering into their first serious relationship while studying at college and living away from home for the first time. I like how the established couples from previous stories play a role in the subsequent stories. Ben and Sid were introduced in the previous book, Watching and Wanting, and now it’s their turn to fall in love. Ben was the quiet and rather reserved new housemate and Sid was Jude’s ex, who frequently made Shawn jealous. And the friction continues on and off during this story.

The main focus of this story is on Ben and his blossoming relationship with Sid. I adored how Sid helped Ben feel at ease with his body and gave him the confidence to be himself, both in and out of the bedroom. The reader gains an insight into the emotional and physical issues facing many transgender men through Ben’s experience in this story.

There’s no unnecessary drama or angst. I liked the ‘ordinariness’ of their everyday lives. There’s plenty of eating and watching TV. Nothing major happens. It’s all about Ben and Sid getting to know each other, how they respond and how they feel as their relationship develops. The reader experiences the anxiety and doubts as well as the warm, fuzzy feelings of happiness as they fall in love.

The story finishes with a positive happy ending and a strong hint at the next couple. I’m looking forward to reading about this sexy guy who wears eye-liner and lacy panties, and has gained the attention of another supposedly straight guy.

Watching Jude’s cam show stirs desires Shawn’s always denied…

Shawn is adrift. Recently graduated, he’s stuck in a dead-end job that barely pays the bills. His girlfriend dumped him, his friends have moved on, and he’s still in Plymouth—going nowhere.

Jude is a student living in the same shared house. Out and proud, he’s everything Shawn’s been running from since he hit puberty. When Shawn discovers Jude works as a cam boy, he can’t resist the urge to watch one of his shows. It makes Shawn want things that scare him, yet his fascination forces him to confront his attraction.

Keen to explore his bicurious side, Shawn suggests they do a show together. Jude agrees, and things get complicated—and kinky—fast. But Jude isn’t looking to get involved with someone so deep in the closet. If Shawn’s going to get what he wants, he needs to find the courage to stop hiding from himself and be honest about who he is.

five-stars

This has been a very enjoyable series with four hot and dirty storylines so far. Yes, each book can be read as standalones, but it’s great to get a feel for the various main characters that pop up as housemates by reading the previous stories. And definitely worth going back to check up on Shawn again if you’ve already read them! No wonder he was always grumpy! He’s certainly different in this story and now we find out why.

Much of this story takes place in the house (and bedroom) these guys share. The focus is on Shawn and Jude this time and we get both points of view as they fall for each other and share some sizzling scenes together on and off the camera—with a little bondage and domination mixed in. These are some of Jay’s hottest to date and with an added edge to them. Shawn eagerly lets Jude guide him in the joys of gay sex, along with plenty of dirty talk and exhibitionism. Phew!

I liked how the tension built around Shawn’s denial and gradual self-awareness of his sexuality and the need to keep their relationship secret. Both characters are endearing as they try to work out if, and how, they can be together outside of the bedroom. Although I thought Jude became a little too pushy too soon for Shawn with regard to coming out as bi. I could appreciate how Shawn was torn and felt fearful. I always like the angsty times, but they didn’t go on for too long here.

I liked that previous characters were involved—Mac and Jez especially, and also Dev and Ewan—not only to see how their relationships have developed, but also for their interaction with Shawn and Jude and the humour they add to the story.

The story flowed effortlessly and kept my attention throughout. All scenes and dialogue are there for a reason and nothing felt superfluous. The ending works well and is HFN. I hope we revisit this pair in the next instalment.

This story has now overtaken Like A Lover as my favourite in the series. Loved it!

cropped-Rainbow-Header copy 5

Getting experience with the guy next door seems like a great idea—until the lines blur.

Dev, a geeky first year physics student, has zero sexual experience and he’s determined to change that ASAP. After a bad time in halls of residence, he’s starting the summer term with different housemates and a new plan of action.

Ewan lives in the house next door to Dev. He’s young, free and single, and isn’t looking to change that anytime soon. When awkward circumstances throw them together, Ewan offers to help Dev out in the bedroom in return for maths tutoring, and Dev jumps at the chance.

They work their way through Dev’s sex-to- do list, but what starts as a perfect no- strings arrangement gets more complicated as their feelings for each other begin to grow. If they’re going to turn their lessons in lovemaking into something more permanent, they need to work out how they feel about each other—before they get to the end of Dev’s list.

NB: Although this book is part of a series, it is a complete story with different main characters and can be read as a standalone.

cropped-Rainbow-Header copy 6
 Sitting on his bed, Dev yawned, his full stomach making him sleepy. He stared at his phone as he contemplated calling home but decided he couldn’t face it tonight. He loved his mum, but she did tend to bang on. Once she got him on the line, she’d end up talking for ages and asking him a million questions he was too tired to answer. Instead, he sent his mum a quick text.

All moved in, everything’s good. I’m shattered now so I’m going to have an early night. I’ll call you tomorrow.

She replied within seconds as though she’d been waiting for him to call.

Okay sweetie, glad you’re settled. Sleep well xxx

He picked up his notepad and crossed off phone home. Texting counted. He also crossed off everything else on his list for today.

That was Saturday done. Dev set his notepad aside, opened his laptop, and pulled up his lists app. He liked his notepad for day-to- day organisation; it gave him a certain satisfaction to cross out the things he’d done and to get to the end of the day with all the tasks completed. But for longer-term planning, he kept his lists on his Mac, synced to his phone.

For the first time in six months, Dev could breathe again. Finally he had a safe place where he could get back on track and look to the future. He began to type.

Things To Do This Term

Make some friends

Learn to cook

Research sex stuff

Join Grindr

Get some experience

Find a boyfriend

He stared at the words on the screen and sighed. That seemed like a lot of things to aim for. But it was good to have goals, right? Jez and Mac seemed really nice, so hopefully Dev was already on his way to achieving the first objective. And that bloke Ewan… Dev’s mind conjured up the image of the flame-haired hunk who lived next door. Ewan had been friendly.

Maybe there was potential there too.

Housemates

cropped-Rainbow-Header copy 3
 4.5*

This is the third book in the Housemates series. Each story focuses on a couple who are brought together through a ‘friends with benefits’ type arrangement. In this case, Ewan teaches Dev ‘how to do’ the various sexual acts on his ‘to-do’ list.

Dev is different from most characters I’ve read. For an eighteen year old, he is extremely mature, as are all the Housemates characters—think teenage bodies with men’s heads.  Dev has set ways of doing things and is well organised. He is very logical, down to writing lists of things he has to do. He is a socially awkward and rather geeky guy, susceptible to bullying, and struggling to find his way during his first year at uni. All these things make him adorable.

Ewan is the gorgeous ginger hunk of a neighbour who volunteers to help Dev gain experience with sex in exchange for some Maths tutoring.

Of course, they soon fall for each other and give the impression they are only going through the motions so Dev is ready for his first boyfriend—which Ewan is at pains to point out he doesn’t want when they first meet.

And herein lies the problem. Neither has the nerve to admit their arrangement has led to feelings developing for the other, nor do they have the confidence to ask the other out on a date. One partially overheard conversation almost leads to the end of their budding friendship. I particularly enjoyed the angsty scenes that followed this miscommunication, though. I just love all those tingles. And no worries, it’s all resolved pretty swiftly.

There are plenty of cute moments between the two guys along the way. Plus their inhibitions seem to disappear during their very steamy and hot sex scenes together. We are treated to recipe tips too as Ewan teaches Dev how to cook. They make a captivating couple, although I would have liked more dialogue to show them getting to know each other and what they liked about the other person rather than focusing mainly on the actions of what they do.

I liked that we get glimpses of  the previous happy couples—Jez and Mac and Josh and Rupert—and see they are still very much in love as well as contributing to this storyline.

Overall, another enjoyable sexy and very British story from Jay.

Review ~ The Law of Attraction by Jay Northcote

the-law-of-attraction

Title: The Law of Attraction

Author: Jay Northcote

Publisher: Jaybird Press (self published)

Length: 62,000 words

Genre: Contemporary gay romance

Cover Artist: Garrett Leigh

Release Date: 5th of February, 2016

cropped-Rainbow-Header copy 5

When a professional relationship turns personal, it’s impossible to resist the law of attraction.

Alec Rowland is a high-flying lawyer in a London firm whose career is his life. He doesn’t have time for relationships and his sexuality is a closely guarded secret. After picking up a cute guy on a Friday night, Alec’s world is rocked to its foundations when his one night stand shows up in the office on Monday morning—as the new temp on his team.

Ed Piper is desperate to prove himself in his new job. The last thing he needs is to be distracted by a crush on his boss. It’s hard to ignore the attraction he feels, even though Alec’s a difficult bastard to work for.

Both men strive to maintain a professional relationship, but tempers fray, passions ignite, and soon they’re both falling hard and fast. If they’re ever going to find a way to be together, Alec needs to be honest about who he really is because Ed won’t go back in the closet for anyone.

 

cropped-Rainbow-Header copy 3

4.5*

Another winner featuring all the hallmarks of a wonderful story from Jay. Well written and easy to read, this is a definite page-turner with fabulously hot sex scenes, sizzling chemistry, along with sexual tension between Alec and Ed. I loved it and them together. Their interaction felt real as did the awkward situation they found themselves in. At one point, though, I thought we were going to get a repeat of a previous plot point from Like a Lover when Alex visited  his parents, but I need not have worried as the story went in a different direction. I loved the low angst and the uncertainty over their relationship status as they dealt with their feelings and the difficulty caused by Alec having wedged himself firmly in the closet.

***I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review***
