About this ebook

Charlie is living the life he wants, except for one thing: he needs someone to take his virginity. Working his way up the management ladder at Crush doesn’t leave much time for hooking up. The support he receives from his family means everything to him, but they can’t help him with this.

Josh had plenty of time to sow his oats at college, but he chose to stay true to his boyfriend. An art student with a place at university waiting for him, he has little to complain about until he finds his boyfriend in a compromising position. After ending their relationship, he seeks comfort in his family – the one thing that never lets him down.

Every corner exposes new secrets, which shake the foundations of the family. Charlie and Josh find solace in one another, crossing boundaries they never expected to. But between blackmail and assault, what are they even fighting for? And who will stand with them?

Find out what happens when they knock down the first domino in a long line of changes set to test their loyalty and put them on a path neither anticipated.

About the author

Elouise East writes sweet and steamy connections in gay romance. She also touches on taboo stories under the name Elouise R East.

Books that tell the stories where friendship and family are the focal point - be it blood family or chosen - are very important to her. That’s why she includes a variety of personalities, talents, ages, situations and abilities as she believes a story or character needs. She wants her characters to be real, to be relatable, to be free to have whatever views they tell her they have. And trust her, most of the time, she does not have any say in the matter!

Her characters come to life on the page for her as well as her readers. Their stories unfold in front of her as she writes, and she has very little input into how they want to be shown. Just like real life, the lives of her characters change with every choice, every interaction and every conversation. And she wouldn’t have it any other way.

She writes books that are emotionally realistic, even if liberties are taken with other aspects of the stories. She doesn’t know any other way to write. It comes from deep inside.

Who is she? A single parent to two children living in the UK. An avid reader who still tries to devour every book she can get her hands on. A student of learning about any subject that takes her fancy. An author of books she would read herself. And a romantic at heart who loves anything cheesy. 

Who’s joining her on her journey?
