Dean has finally found a workplace where he’s welcomed with open arms. Starting fresh in a new city was the only downside, and he refused to become a burden to his new colleagues by accepting too many dinner invites.
Oliver’s restaurant is finally making a profit, and his loss of social life is no concern for him. Anyway, an overweight workaholic is hardly considered a catch from what he’s been told. But when the new firefighter sends heated glances his way, he can’t help but react. One night won’t hurt.
But one night becomes more, and Oliver and Dean become inseparable. Until Oliver’s restaurant is burnt down.
Their relationship is tested to the limits during the investigation, but Oliver took a chance with Dean and he refuses to take it back.
This is an MM romance, featuring a firefighter who wants to believe in love, a chef who learns that a work/life balance is essential, and the reminder that when someone finds “the one,” it doesn’t matter whether it was only supposed to be one night. Love is love.
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?
