Book Blurb

Carey English spends his days planning extravagant parties and lavish weddings and generally making people’s lives brighter. He spends his nights wishing for a man he doesn't have to share and who won’t try to drag him back into the closet. It doesn't help that the man he wants most doesn’t need a closet to begin with — his straight best friend, Sky. Skyler Wood has been dumped — again — just days before the holiday season, leaving him with an ex-fiancée, a nonrefundable New Year’s Eve getaway rental, and nothing to ring in the New Year but a broken heart. For Carey, rushing off to offer Sky a shoulder will either be the best decision he’s ever made—or it will lead to the worst heartbreak he’s ever experienced.

A story from the Dreamspinner Press 2014 Daily Dose package "Mended".

Book Review

Plucky gay man Logan Carey is plenty busy with his successful new catering and event planning business, but when his best friend Skyler Wood phones him with news that his upcoming nuptials have been cancelled, well what’s a boy to do but try to console his best friend? With the New Year holiday approaching, Sky can’t be left to drown his sorrows alone. Especially since Sky plans to do so at the chalet-cottage that he reserved for he himself and his ex-fiancée.

Determined to help his friend through the holidays, Carey heads to the cottage armed with DVD’s, booze, and a shoulder to cry on. He’s going to dismiss his all-consuming crush on his straight best friend and do whatever it takes to sooth Sky’s aching heart. Will junk food, movies, and booze do the trick…or will Sky require more than a mere shoulder?

I enjoyed this lighthearted gay-for-you tale. Good capture of playful repartee between the two men and I felt the story had a neat bubbly quality that made it excellent fantasy fodder.

Thank you, L.D. Blakely, for sharing this delightful “best friend, think again” short story.
