Two best friends take a year off to find themselves… and end up finding each other.
Joshua Simpson has just finished four years at Purdue University, but that’s not why he’s buzzing with excitement. Once they’ve said goodbye to their families, Josh and his best friend Alex are taking off to discover America in an old but reliable VW van, planning on not seeing snow for an entire year.
Josh has always considered himself straight—except for that one time in college—so when he and Alex are living in such close proximity on the road, he’s unsure what these new feelings mean. Is it because they’re spending 24/7 together, or is it something deeper? And does it really matter since Josh has only ever seen Alex with women?
While in Oregon, Josh meets Johnno, a sexy but confusing Aussie surfer. While having an impromptu surfing lesson, Johnno helps Josh realize who he is and what he wants—but Alex’s reaction leaves Josh confused.
From a Montana ranch to the bright lights and dangerous streets of Los Angeles to a dark and lonely deserted highway in Alabama, join Josh and Alex as they drive around the US, discovering not only who they are, but who they can be together.
Favourite non-MM reads.
Hi, thanks for having me. As most of us here, I’ve always been a reader but it wasn’t until a few years ago that I started reading MM. So what did I read before?
I discovered the more ‘adult’ books when I was a teen and my first favourite author was Sidney Sheldon. He not only wrote great books but he was a film and television producer. I’m pretty sure over the years I read every thing he wrote but my favourite is If Tomorrow Comes. That book will stay with me for life. Even now I think I need a re-read.
Like most people, everyone has read at least one Stephen King novel. I’ve read a handful and I’ll always love Misery, even though the movie wasn’t as good as the book (though they never are, are they?) and I think I’ve read Pet Sematary at least five times.
A ‘chick-lit’ author I devoured only a handful of years ago is Marian Keyes. She wrote modern classics like Lucy Sullivan is Getting Married and Sushi for Beginners. Her stories a full of humour but they always have a message.
On a more serious note I have a few non-fiction books I love as well. Nancy Wake by Peter Fitzsimons is a standout for anyone wanting to read about the fall of the Nazi regime. Nancy Wake was an Australian living in France at the time of WWII. She was known as “The Little White Mouse” and the Nazi’s wanted her dead but they couldn’t find her. The book tells her story as she fought alongside the French Resistance and how she helped the Allies. Truly interesting stuff.
Killing Pablo: The Hunt for the World’s Greatest Outlaw by Mark Bowden is a must read for anyone interested in the Colombian drug trade. Pablo Escobar was once the world’s most wanted man and this story tells how with they eventually got him. The details of what Escobar used to do and the intricate web he wove was absolutely terrifying.
I’d love to hear about what your favourite non-mm reads are. J

About the Author
R.J. Jones started as a reader and eventually made the progression to reviewing. It wasn’t until two men popped into her thoughts, insisting on telling her their story that she started to write.
It started with one scene. A hot and dirty one in the shower…
R.J.’s initial thought was if she could write their scene then they’d shut up and allow her to concentrate on other aspects of her day. Not so. That shower scene ended up being 3000 words long and three hours of work. And still, they didn’t shut up. They told her their entire story and she didn’t sleep for days. Sometimes she couldn’t keep up with what they were telling her and she had to keep a notebook by her bed.
Whilst she was writing their story a side character decided he needed his story told too. Then other characters followed suit.
You see the problem? If she ever wants to sleep again then she needs to write.
R.J. is a wife and a mother to two boys. She is surrounded by males. Even her dog is a boy.
