Jay Northcote talks Nothing Special ~ Excerpt, Giveaway, Rafflecopter

Prism Book Alliance would like to thank Jay Northcote for taking the time to talk with us today. There is also a Giveaway, so don’t miss that.


Title: Nothing Special
Author: Jay Northcote
Publisher: Dreamspinner Press
Cover Artist: Anna Sikorska


Sitting on the tube next to Sol knowing that something was on the menu when they got back to his place was a new level of sexual tension. There were a few other people in the carriage, so they kept their hands to themselves, but the warmth of Sol’s thigh and shoulder pressed up against his own made Noah hot in a way that couldn’t be blamed on the temperature in the underground. He licked his lips and glanced to the side to find Sol looking at him from under his lashes. Noah tried—and failed—to glare, a smile tugging at the corners of his mouth.

“Stop it,” he muttered.

“What?” Sol pouted, sounding all aggrieved innocence.

“Just… stop looking at me like that.” Eye-fucking me, Noah thought—like the girl behind the bar in the restaurant had been doing to Sol. He shook his head and looked away, still smiling. He wondered if Sol had any idea what he was doing to him. He took a deep breath and pushed away intrusive thoughts of climbing into Sol’s lap right there on the tube and snogging him until he ran out of air.



Noah thinks he’s nothing special. Average height, a bit on the skinny side, and cute but rather geeky, he’s relentlessly ordinary. He certainly doesn’t expect to be noticed by Sol, the gorgeous dark-haired stranger Noah sees on his commute home most days. But when Noah’s friend, Dom, persuades Noah to take a huge risk in a bid to get Sol’s attention, things turn out better than Noah dared to hope. Noah and Sol start dating, and much to Noah’s surprise, his feelings seem to be reciprocated.

But Noah’s insecurities make him doubt Sol. He doesn’t believe he’s interesting enough or sexy enough to hold Sol’s attention, and as Sol tries to get closer, Noah’s instinct is to pull away to protect himself. If their relationship is going to survive, Sol needs to convince Noah that he sees Noah very differently to how Noah sees himself. Because to Sol, Noah is something very special indeed.

About the Author:

JN-001-JN-avi-500x500Jay lives just outside Bristol in the West of England, with her husband, two children, and two cats.

She comes from a family of writers, but she always used to believe that the gene for fiction writing had passed her by. She spent years only ever writing emails, articles, or website content. One day, she decided to try and write a short story–just to see if she could–and found it rather addictive. She hasn’t stopped writing since.
