Don’t start something you can’t finish.

It’s a cliché, but 22-year-old graffiti artist Christian lives by those words. He’s going away when he graduates from art school in just six short months. With so little time left, getting involved with gorgeous Shea Nolan has to be a mistake. If only he could make himself stay away from the sweet, sexy police officer.

Christian has a decision to make. Are a few months of happiness worth the inevitable heartbreak when it’s time to walk away?

Against the Wall is the seventh book in Alexa Land’s best-selling Firsts and Forever series, but each book can stand alone, so jump in anywhere. PLEASE NOTE: This male/male romance is for ADULT READERS ONLY. It includes explicit language and graphic sex.


I had just reviewed two very difficult books that had left me in tears and thought to myself – Firsts and Forever – I could do with some happy and a good laugh. Yeah, that didn’t work out too well. This has got to be the most difficult and emotional book in the series and I ended up blubbering again! Talk about having to wait until the last minute to see how the story ends!!

I was excited to see Christian’s story but wouldn’t have guessed how it would pan out in a million years! Well played Alexa! You gave us a character that we all fell in love with and then you gave us his story and nearly stopped our hearts!

Christian is someone you can’t help falling in love with. He is thoughtful and kind, always willing to help and carrying a huge secret. He can also be a jerk sometimes but there are reasons for his erratic and sometimes frustrated behaviour. He lives for the thrill of giving the public his art through graffiti. He has nearly finished his college course and in 6 months plans on going away so the last thing he is looking for is a relationship.

Shea Nolan, hot cop, first noticed Christian when Nana was arrested whilst up to her usual antics. He was so easy to adore! This huge man was a complete nerd, nervous like you wouldn’t believe and seemed to make a habit out of tripping over his own feet. His character grew so much during the story and the love and devotion he showed Christian was off the charts.

I don’t want to give too much away but suffice to say Christian’s no dating rule goes out of the window when he meets Shea but all he can promise the man is six months. He won’t give a reason for this but you can bet when Shea realises he will fight him all the way.

NANA!! This would not be a Firsts and Forever book without Nana and she is every bit as crazy and outrageous as she’s always been. She is becoming perfect at organising gay homosexual weddings even if it means taking over a cruise ship. Please don’t ever kill Nana off!!!

This is a fantastic addition to the series and Alexa if you are taking requests “please can Chance have his own story soon” 
