Watching Jude’s cam show stirs desires Shawn’s always denied…

Shawn is adrift. Recently graduated, he’s stuck in a dead-end job that barely pays the bills. His girlfriend dumped him, his friends have moved on, and he’s still in Plymouth—going nowhere.

Jude is a student living in the same shared house. Out and proud, he’s everything Shawn’s been running from since he hit puberty. When Shawn discovers Jude works as a cam boy, he can’t resist the urge to watch one of his shows. It makes Shawn want things that scare him, yet his fascination forces him to confront his attraction.

Keen to explore his bicurious side, Shawn suggests they do a show together. Jude agrees, and things get complicated—and kinky—fast. But Jude isn’t looking to get involved with someone so deep in the closet. If Shawn’s going to get what he wants, he needs to find the courage to stop hiding from himself and be honest about who he is.

Recent Release Spotlight with Jay Northcote

We are here today to talk about Watching and Wanting (Housemates 4)

What can you tell us about it?

It’s the fourth instalment of the Housemates Series.

The Housemates Series is a collection of standalone stories set around a student house in Britain. Each book focuses on new characters, with themes of self-discovery and sexual awakening.

Please tell us more about our main characters.

Shawn is the Housemate who was a bit of a twat in the earlier books. In this story you find out what’s bothering him and he faces up to his fears. Jude is a new character, recently moved into the house and he becomes Shawn’s love interest.

What is next for these characters?  Is there more to this series?  If so who will we hear from next?

Well, Shawn and Jude get their HEA/HFN of course, and I’m currently writing book 5 in the series where you get to see Shawn and Jude a few months down the line. Book 5 focuses on a new couple though. The main characters are Ben and Jude who both feature in book 4 as minor characters.
