You'll get pictures of Moab tomorrow (maybe!) but in the meantime, hey, there's this book! That I really love! And it's out tomorrow!
So I'm just going to drop this here and go to bed, because hey-- lots of driving, lots of getting out in the heat and going, "Oh, ah, penis shaped rocks!" And an hour in the pool cooling off afterward.
But I really do love this book-- it's been blog toured at Open Skye Books and My Fiction Nook so far, where I talk about the pushy younger guy/shyer older guy trope, and hurt/comfort too! I think Wednesday I talk about virgins, and somewhere in there I confess to being a rotten babysitter, and also what to pack for Manny 101. Anyway-- stay tuned as I make my way through the lovely writers at RWA and the perils of the road trip with my family.
And enjoy this one. It's short and it's sweet and it's comforting--and comfort is good right now. Pull it over your heart like a warm blanket. That's what some books are for.
A Fool and His Manny
by Amy Lane
Dustin Robbins-Grayson was a surly adolescent when Quinlan Gregory started the nanny gig. After a rocky start, he grew into Quinlan’s friend and confidant—and a damned sexy man.
At twenty-one, Dusty sees how Quinlan sacrificed his own life and desires to care for Dusty’s family. He’s ready to claim Quinlan—he’s never met a kinder, more capable, more lovable man. Or a lonelier one. Quinlan has spent his life as the stranger on the edge of the photograph, but Dusty wants Quinlan to be the center of his world. First he has to convince Quinlan he’s an adult, their love is real, and Quinlan can be more than a friend and caregiver. Can he show Quin that he deserves to be both a man and a lover, and that in Dusty’s eyes, he’s never been “just the manny?”
