Charlie Stone has problems. He’s just found his boyfriend and his new BFF in bed together, and only because he failed to show up for his fortnightly back, crack and sack wax. Furious, he storms out of the house and speeds away from the gates of his luxury life into the unknown.
When he finds himself stranded on the side of the road in a remote village, his future looking bleak, his dreams wasted on a fairy tale that turned out to be a nightmare, he’s not expecting the handsome but shaggy-looking bookshop owner, Nathan Marshall, to come to his rescue. A Divine intervention if Charlie ever saw one. But the village is foreign land to glamour puss Charlie, who’s more at home shopping for the latest trends and getting his hair coiffed than trekking through muddy hills in jeans and wellies. And Nathan’s never even seen the inside of a beauty salon, let alone considered having that tumbleweed on his chest waxed.
Hope seems lost until Charlie discovers that an amateur dramatics group are looking for budding stars to fill in two of their starring roles. Could the village offer more than babbling streams, scenic moorland and the smell of horse manure? Could it offer a chance to claim back the dreams he thought he’d lost? And, more importantly, could an unlikely romance be brewing on the horizon? Even when the dark pasts of this unlikely pairing come back to haunt them?
🎭A darkly comic look at love, death, dysfunctional family and emotional trauma. Gay romance. Gay romantic comedy.
Loved this story!
I’ve never heard of this author before, and I’m so glad I saw this book advertised somewhere in my FB newsfeed.
His Boy is a romantic comedy written by British author, Dean Cole. The main character, Charlie Stone, is an over-the-top drama queen, who has left his cheating boyfriend and a life of pampered luxury which came along with it.
Charlie storms out of his house (in his bunny slippers) and into one of Richard’s (the cheater) uber-expensive sports cars. Unfortunately, he took nothing else with him. No skin or hair products, no credit cards—not even a pair of $400 shoes! What’s a boy to do⁉️
The car has some kind of malfunction and winds up on the side of the road in some sleepy little countryside town—that’s when Charlie realizes just how helpless he is.
Enter Nathan. He takes Charlie under his wing, shelters him, feeds him, and for the remainder of the story, tries to keep him grounded.
The town in which Nathan lives is so full of colorful characters, each one is as important and quirky as the next, adding so much to this storyline.
As much as this book is funny, it’s also a bit somber as Charlie has an awakening and learns a lot about himself. Things are never as they seem, and Charlie’s tendencies are to find out the hard way. Yes, he’s sort of bratty, spoiled, and self-centered, but don’t be dissuaded from reading His Boy because it’s SO worth it. It’s actually part of Charlie’s charm.
The storyline is well-written. The descriptions of EVERYTHING are perfectly detailed, and Charlie Stone is a HOOT!!! Fabulous read. I highly recommend this one.
