Nothing Serious by Jay Northcote Blog Tour

What happens when “nothing serious” turns into something more complicated?

Mark O’Brien is finally being honest with himself. His relationship with Rachel is over and he’s moving out of the home they’ve shared for six years. They get along, but he can’t fix a relationship when the person he’s with is the wrong gender.

Jamie Robertson, one of the removal men, is huge and ridiculously gorgeous, and Mark is smitten at first sight. When a cardboard box splits, revealing items of a personal nature that Mark never wanted anybody to see, he’s mortified. But it sparks the start of a beautiful friendship with benefits.

As Jamie initiates Mark into the joys of gay sex, the two men get increasingly close and “nothing serious” turns into something rather important to both of them. But communication isn’t their strong point. Will either man ever find the courage to be honest about his feelings?

Please note that although this edition has been re-edited for publication, there is no new or additional content.

3.5 stars

This is an easy, sexy read. It’s the story of a newly out gay man who finds himself attracted to one of the removal men helping him move out of his girlfriend’s apartment. It’s also the story of the removal man who offers to introduce the newly out gay man to the joys of gay sex.

This is a pretty simple story about two somewhat ordinary men. No strings sex doesn’t stay no strings for long. I enjoyed Mark and Jamie and I liked the characters around them – especially Jamie’s family. This is a fairly high heat story, but the characters are engaging enough for the book to avoid most erotica clichés. This is a short novella and it is a quick, engaging read.

I love reading the back catalogues of favourite authors. This story was first published in 2013 and while it is a pretty basic m/m romance, there are a few moments where the magic I’ve come to expect in Jay Northcote’s writing shines through.

Jay lives just outside Bristol in the West of England. He comes from a family of writers, but always used to believe that the gene for fiction writing had passed him by. He spent years only ever writing emails, articles, or website content.

One day, Jay decided to try and write a short story—just to see if he could—and found it rather addictive. He hasn’t stopped writing since.

Jay writes contemporary romance about men who fall in love with other men. He has five books published by Dreamspinner Press, and also self-publishes under the imprint Jaybird Press. Many of his books are now available as audiobooks.
