Release Blitz: Flare by Posy Roberts + Excerpt & Giveaway!

Flare by Posy Roberts

After tremendous loss, Hugo and Kevin seek stability for themselves and the kids. They never expected family and friends to toss obstacles in the way of their happily ever after.

Love and family to fight for.

Hugo and Kevin strive to put their lives back together after tragedy, doing everything in their power to create a stable life. Hugo’s acting career is back on track, and Kevin hires a nanny to help with the kids as they discover their new normal. But when Erin’s parents seek full custody of Brooke and Finn, that stability is shattered.

With Hugo working in LA or New York, the distance from his new family gets to him. At home, the nanny’s hands-on approach leaves Hugo feeling pushed out, so he leaves his beloved apartment and eclectic neighborhood behind to move in with Kevin.

Hugo has a hard time fitting in with the suburbanites with Kevin’s passive-aggressive “friends” making Hugo feel anything but welcome. As the custody case heads to mediation, Brooke is bullied about having two dads, and Hugo realizes his mere presence might be doing more harm than good.

Hugo must decide to stay and fight for his family or leave and let them live in peace.

Fusion by Posy Roberts

Kevin and Hugo make plans to blend their lives, but bleak news changes everything. Building a future together is still a priority, but only if their relationship can survive.

Love strengthened by adversity.

Everyone in Kevin’s life knows him as straight rather than bisexual. There was no need to come out until now, but loving Hugo is worth any prejudice he’ll encounter. Hugo does his best to be patient while Kevin navigates his way toward openness, but he refuses to be put back in a closet for long.

Kevin wants to tell his kids without screwing up their newfound stability, and he worries about telling his ex because Erin might use the truth against him to renegotiate custody. Kevin wants it all finalized, but time isn’t on his side.

When Erin gets grim news, it shakes everyone to the core and rips Kevin away from the life he planned with Hugo. The news brings Hugo’s past hurts bubbling to the surface. Yet when Erin turns to Hugo for support, their new connection shows him how essential he is to Kevin and his kids.

Despite the chaos, it’s clear Hugo is very much a part of this unconventional family.

Blurb:  You need people to love you, especially when you shove them away.

A bomb destroyed high-powered lawyer Gil Lemieux’s seemingly perfect life, and PTSD has ruled every decision since the explosion that left him scarred inside and outside. Moving home with his mom is meant to be a temporary measure, just like proofreading for a medical editorial firm is meant to be a stopgap. But two years after taking on the wrong court case, he’s still living in fear.

Keith Kramer might be based 1,500 miles away from Gil, but their shared work brings them together—a chance meeting that’s life-changing. Gil is drawn to Keith’s good looks and intelligence, but it’s his innate understanding that Gil is more than the scars on his skin that is truly attractive. He’s everything Gil used to be and more. It blows Gil’s mind that his attraction might be returned.

Only doubt could widen the distance between them. Keith’s hopefulness, borne out of surviving some tough challenges of his own, isn’t enough to bridge the distance alone. Gil will need to believe he has as much to offer as Keith if they’re to build a life together.

Earthquake Changes

by Posy Roberts

In the opening scene of Tangled Mind, Beck Lund walks into to his house and hears his boyfriend Brady choking on his own vomit because of the heroin he injected. Brady dies right in front of Beck’s eyes, and there is nothing he can do to help.

So why start a book there? The simplest answer is that heroin can shut down a person’s natural coughing reflex, causing them to aspirate and choke. So that’s the reality of the drug.

The not so simple answer has to do with Beck and Brady’s relationship. They had a codependent relationship where Beck kowtowed to all of Brady’s needs in order to make life easier for him because Brady suffered from severe depression, untreatable by traditional means. And for Beck to have experienced a situation where he was utterly powerless to help, is earth shattering. He’s always been able to do something.

Beck loved Brady very much despite how unbalanced their relationship was, but it was by no means a healthy one. He would likely have stayed with Brady until he was used up. You’d think Beck would at least feel some relief or sense of freedom, but he’s utterly lost without Brady. It was a symbiotic relationship where Beck gained meaning from being a helper and being needed.

From the outside, Timothy Kallis, Beck’s best friend, sees how much Beck has struggled in the past, but it’s even worse after Brady’s death. Timothy wants to help him deal with the grief, but he also wants to see Beck grow stronger. Yet he sees how adrift Beck still is months after Brady’s death and helps Beck seek out professional help. So while Beck is working on recovering from a co-dependent relationship, he’s completely oblivious to the fact that Timothy has loved him from afar for years. Beck needs to be oblivious to other peoples’ wants so he can focus on his own for the first time, because after being in a codependent relationship for so long, he’s forgotten how to listen to his gut.

Brady’s death is the impetus of change that never would’ve happened for both Beck and Timothy. Beck would’ve continued in his life with Brady until he was so ruined that he’d become a shell of a man. Timothy wouldn’t have pushed Beck to get help or made other small changes to show Beck his affection. Sometimes we need the earth to shake so we can make changes in our lives.

Recovery has to happen before Beck has a chance of being in a healthy, egalitarian relationship, which he needs to be. Recovery before love. But if Beck can’t recognize Timothy’s affection for him, it might be too late for them to move beyond friendship.

After months of challenging his codependent tendencies and learning how to stand up for himself, Beck finally starts to trust his gut and hopes to one day love again.
