Far from angelic thoughts...
Last year, Dean Chapman fell in love… with another man. He’s fallen for a childhood friend, Jay Reid, and as Jay is a kind, loving soul, Dean knows that he holds an angel’s heart in the palm of his hand.
Since they’ve moved in together, most of their friends and family have been supportive but the one person who knows just how to wind him up, drop him down and step all over him is the one woman who should be on their side, but Jay’s sister, April, is waiting for him to fail… big time. Dean’s determined to prove her wrong but only time can do that and he’s not the most patient of men. Even worse, sometimes he fears that despite his resolve, he’ll lose the only person who has ever made his heart race. Jay should have someone who can love him completely, and give him everything both emotionally and physically that he needs. If Dean wants to keep him, he has to give himself up to a gay relationship completely and that includes his heart and some rather intimate parts of his body.
Jay has total faith in his lover and patience… plenty of patience. Dean needs time and Jay knows April isn’t helping and she’s about to piss him off… one last time. It’s his parents’ ruby wedding anniversary and they are about to spend the night in a lovely country hotel. Both men are in for a few surprises, not least of all the four-poster bed Jay’s parents have arranged for them. First, there’s the church blessing to get through, people to meet, the peace to keep, dinner to eat, and an unexpected declaration of love, and that’s all without throwing the strawberry lube Jay adores into the mix.
There’s a reason Dean calls his lover ‘Angel’ but Jay’s thoughts are far from angelic. He must stop his sister interfering, and ask if Dean’s remembered to pack the strawberry lube for the weekend.
