Are you ready for a low angst, steamy, cosy, small town, second chance romance with two men who are about to realise that the man they thought they’d put behind them is the one they needed all along?
It’s got a two former childhood best friends and teenage sweethearts, a cottage in need of renovation, a few disasters, forced proximity, an elderly collie, secret beaches, and many nosy friends, as well as plenty of steam and sweetness. Plus it’s very low angst, and promises many cosy, fuzzy feelings.
I’m so happy that I’m finally able to share my seaside small town with you, and I hope you’ll love Heather Bay as much as I do. Plus, Dan has already started working on the audio so hopefully that will be out in August. And I’m already hard at work on book two.
Falling for my childhood sweetheart wasn’t part of the plan.
Moving back to Heather Bay wasn’t on Oliver’s agenda for the summer, but after inheriting a cottage in dire need of renovation he doesn’t have much choice. Supervising the builders should be easy… except the man in charge is Oliver’s childhood best friend and ex-boyfriend.
Lane’s spent nine years desperately trying to forget his first love, but that doesn’t stop him from fantasising about Oliver in every spare moment once he discovers Oliver’s back in town. Falling into bed together isn’t supposed to mean anything, even if Lane’s emotions feel too big to be ignored.
Being drawn to each other is one thing, but being stuck together after disaster strikes the renovations is another. The pull of the past is strong but Oliver and Lane have been down this road before. This time they’ll need to learn from their mistakes so they can finally keep their promises.
Like I Promised is a steamy second-chance contemporary MM romance featuring former childhood sweethearts, interfering friends, questionable barbecues, a very lazy collie, cosy coffee shops, and secret beaches.
“This book is like a warm blanket you can snuggle up in and enjoy. I love a good second chance story and Oliver and Lane definitely deliver. Charlie Novak just has a way of writing a book that makes you feel good, both while you are reading it and afterwards.”Goodreads and BookBub Reviewer
