An Exclusive Excerpt from Nothing Special
“D’you want me to take these off?” He gestured at the slightly baggy boxers he’d borrowed from Sol after their shower earlier.
“Only if you don’t mind.”
“Might as well do it properly.” Noah slid them down and kicked them off onto the floor. He felt a frisson of excitement at being naked while Sol was still covered, enjoying the odd mixture of embarrassment and arousal as Sol’s gaze swept over him. His cock thickened and filled a little, shifting slightly where it lay on his thigh.
Sol chuckled, his gaze drawn by the movement. “Stop that or I’ll never get started.”
Noah stretched out, folding his arms behind his head. “I can’t help it. It just happens when you look at me like that.”
Sol shook his head and got up to turn on the lamp by the bed. “You’re so easy. I like that in a man.” He moved the lamp so there was a little more light directed at Noah. “There. That’s perfect.” He sat back down and got to work.
About Nothing Special
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.

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.
