Author Name & Publisher: J. A. Melville
Publication Date & Length: February 20, 2016 – 295 Pages




What do you do when nobody wants you…..?

Harry was tired of being used, abused and taken for granted by men. Surely he deserved better than to be cast out like last night’s leftovers?
All his life he’d been treated like that. When he’d come out to his parents about being gay, they’d reacted by throwing him out, not wanting to acknowledge a homosexual son. They even went so far as to pay him a monthly allowance to keep him out of their lives.
What was wrong with him? Why didn’t anyone want him?
One night at the club after being dumped by his boyfriend, he thought he might find the answer in the bottom of his wine glass, or at the very least, drown his sorrows in it.

They say when one door closes another opens or something like that…….

Enter Louis; tall, handsome, confident and sexy. Louis makes Harry feel like he’s never felt before. He also makes him want to break all his own rules, deciding a one night stand with this stunning man is a good way to get over a broken heart or distract him from it at least.
The attraction between them is instant, their passion intense and Harry realises every sexual encounter he’s ever had is insignificant in comparison to how Louis makes him feel.
Louis is older, wiser, so much more experienced than Harry. He also has a wild past, a past Harry can only imagine.
The emotions he feels around Louis both give him strength and bring out his insecurities. He can’t think around him, so powerful is the hold this man has over him.
Maybe he should listen to the advice of his best friend Nora and stop over thinking things. Advice that sounds great in theory, but….

That might have worked until Harry discovers Louis is keeping secrets from him; secrets that will drive them apart if Louis can’t open up to him.
When the truth finally comes out, Harry is left reeling. He’s also left with an important decision. Cut Louis from his life and have his heart broken or stay with him and help him face all that troubles him, knowing that in the end, everything that matters to him may be lost.

WARNING:::::::::: do not read if you do not like a book that will have you emtionally invested in it. This definitely one of those books.

I found myself in such an emotional state reading this book. And it was not just one emotion either it was several different ones. I found myself laughing at Nora and Harry and their bickering back and forth. I wanted to strangle Louis for being so dang hard headed. I cried for both Louis and Harry for the medical and emotional turmoil they was going through. And I found that feared that Harry was going to lose Louis on a few different occasions.

This book completely engrossed me and wrapped itself around me until I felt like I was part of this book.

Louis and Harry both made fall in love with them. Their characters was just spit in for this book and they made each other while on so many different levels.

This is definitely a book that I recommend others to read and dare them to say that it did not affect them. J.A. Melville did a superb job and should definitely be proud of this book.



This was quite the story.  Not only was it emotional, I became engrossed in the mystery that was Louis.  While I will admit that I thought the story began quite slowly, I stuck with it and am so glad that I did.

At first, I was very wary of Louis.  He seemed so flighty – almost like he was looking to just hook up with Harry rather than pursue something real.  Because he was so mysterious about his health, job and where he was jetting off to at random times, I began to really dislike Louis.

Harry was just an all around sweet guy.  I really enjoyed his life and reading about his friend, Nora.  She was a great secondary character and I loved her business!  Harry was almost too forgiving, in my opinion.  He was understanding but also was able to learn to stand up for himself.

This book was a great read that was emotionally charged.  I had a few issues with little things in the story, but not so much that it detracted from my enjoyment.

From my teenage years, all I wanted to do was become a writer one day. Even now as an adult woman with a partner and three children who are not so little any more, I’ve always lived with my head in the clouds, a dreamer, often amusing myself with my own imagination.
It might have taken me awhile to finally live my dream, but I did it.
I’m a sucker for romance and love some spice in the books I read, so no surprise really that I like to write romance with some spice too. I love this thing I do, letting the characters in my head have their voice, but sometimes I wish they wouldn’t choose the middle of the night to try and get my attention.
I write erotic romance and paranormal erotica, and like trying to challenge myself with every book I write.
I live in a sleepy country town in Tasmania, Australia with my partner and three children plus our 4 cats and my little dog who thinks he’s a big dog. My life is complete and utter bedlam most of the time but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
I have a website too, why not check it out.
