Coming In by Michelle Ogilvy

Jay and Adam have been sharing a flat, and a bed, since they moved down to Adelaide after high school a couple of years ago. Neither man considers himself gay or mentions the sexual nature of their friendship to anyone else.

Their arrangement doesn’t stop Jay from casually dating random women he meets through work and both men seem happy with the way things are. That is, until Adam meets April, a damsel in distress that latches herself onto Adam in a way that he doesn’t mind at all. Jay sure does, though.

As Adam gets closer to April, the friendship between the two men starts to unravel and for the first time in years, Jay is facing a life without Adam. If he wants to save their friendship, he will have to offer Adam a lot more than a spot in his bed. There’s only one problem, Jay doesn’t believe in love.

M/M Bi Romance

Adam and Jay have been best friends for years. They moved together in order to stay close. Both are not necessarily living their dream, but they are surviving.

Adam meets April accidentally – she uses him and has a slightly strange pathology. She is a user and is not afraid to use people to get where she wants. She is struggling with her own family situation and because of that, she latches on and doesn't really let go. Is it love? I'm still not sure. I think it's more a relationship of convenience.

Adam doesn't really know how to handle the relationship with April – he also doesn't know what to do with his changing relationship with Jay. He is not happy with his current school situation – he feels like he has no life. He also has a family that doesn't really understand him nor are they very supportive.

Jay is just struggling with life in general. He has women and men in his bed, but deep in his heart, he loves Adam. When both of them struggle to find a way through the current situation, they both fumble. Jay and Adam are super young and still figuring out how to be adults.

Overall, this story had a lot packed in to it and in the end, it all smooths out, but I felt that the family situations were not really concluded well. I was left thinking what happened to the family and were they were ever able to resolve those issues.

Michelle Ogilvy was born and bred in Adelaide, Australia. In primary school, to alleviate the boredom of putting spelling list words in sentences to explain their meaning, she started weaving them all into stories. She hasn’t been able to shake this writing thing ever since.

Her day job involves working on health data collection tools, which resulted in her first publication, in a medical journal. For about a year, she worked as an editor for the department, but eventually she realised that her writing at home was enough time spent alone concentrating on words on a computer screen and she went back to her old job. It’s still a lot of time spent staring at a computer, but there’s at least more interaction with actual humans.
