Pierce. He's every woman's fantasy.
Pity he's not interested in women.
Fierce loyalty has meant his own needs have often taken a back seat, until he can’t ignore them any longer. Kissing his playboy bachelor-lifestyle goodbye, he’s ready to give himself to the one.
The only problem is his dream man isn’t so sure.
Done with playing it safe, Pierce goes all out to prove that the love they have for each other isn’t wrong; in fact, nothing has been more right.
But when the object of your affection isn’t so easily convinced, how much of yourself are you willing to compromise for true love?
The fear of falling in love and being rejected, that fear can bring a man to his knees.
It’s not just a broken heart that’s at stake.
What I wouldn’t do to be a gay man if a chance at Pierce came my way. He has a dominant personality, he knows what he wants and even when it may hurt to walk away he will when he knows what is best for him. We first meet Pierce in book one, Harbour, and while you don’t need to read the first book, I highly recommend that you do so you get a better picture of what is occurring because they basically take place during the same time.
I knew when we first met Pierce that there would be so much more to him deep inside. I was hooked from the start and didn’t put it down until I was finished. It pulled at my heart especially when Pierce’s heart is broken by his dream guy. I wanted to beat the hell out of him for walking away from Pierce and not being man enough to just say fuck it and follow his real feelings, not the ones he has to show for others. Pierce in typical guy fashion tries to moves on, but quickly finds that no one else can replace his dream man.
I truly hope that we will see more of Pierce in the future books because I have claimed him as my gay book boyfriend. I hadn’t previously read anything by Penelope Louleas prior to reading Harbour in preparation for Pierce, and I will be adding her to my list of authors to watch out for because I want more of this series sooner rather than later.
Penelope Louleas is an author from Melbourne, Australia. She lives with her husband, young daughter and in late April, 2015, her son will be arriving. Penelope began writing several years ago but only recently decided to try her hand at independent publishing. When she's not writing, Penelope is an avid reader and daydreamer. Her debut novel, Harbour, was released on May 16th, 2014 and quickly became an Amazon Australia best seller.
