Blog Tour, Exclusive Excerpt & Giveaway: Bounce by Becca Seymour
Outback Boys, Book 2
Standoffish Aiden is content keeping people at a distance and ensuring his boundaries are impenetrable. There’s safety in not opening up, but there’s also a loneliness he doesn’t realise exists until he meets Riley, a new member of the LGBTQI+ adventure group Outback Boys.
Fascinated by the new guy, Aiden is quick to discover his flirtation skills are rusty and his sweet-talking is cringeworthy. But sweet and clumsy Riley doesn’t seem to mind so much.
Even though Riley doesn’t quite know how to handle Aiden’s intensity, he’s willing to step out of his comfort zone and see how their tentative friendship unravels.
Between a surf lesson that resembles a kangaroo on acid and paddle boarding that is trickier than walking a tightrope, Aiden and Riley discover love may be a possibility after all.
Happiness relies on honesty and openness, though. And with both men holding on tightly to past struggles, their future together is at risk. Can the two Aussies bounce back and heal themselves and each other, or are some wounds too raw to recover from?
Outback Boys is a sweet and sexy M/M romance series complete with bruised butts, rope burn, and overworked muscles… all in the pursuit of adventure, of course!
Trigger Warning: Contains themes (discussions) of mental health and suicide.
Exclusive Excerpt:As soon as he was gone, I exhaled, turned, and sat down, head dipping low and falling on my hands. “Don’t worry, it wasn’t that bad,” Frank said quietly, causing me to both jump and groan. I finally looked in his direction and was met by a wide smile. “Honestly, your flirting is a little rusty.” He paused a moment, brows lifting. “That was what you were attempting, right?” I snorted. “I think so, yeah, maybe.” Frank laughed, stepping fully into the area, already showered and dressed. “That’s a relief. There was this whole awkward, almost adorable thing going on between you. It was a bit like watching… I don’t know, a foal trying to walk for the first time. Clumsy and wobbly, but cute.” “Nope.” I shook my head despite my laughter. “I can’t….” I groaned again before saying, “Was it really that bad?” My voice remained low. “Not so bad that a bit of practice won’t fix it.” I exhaled, collected my belongings, and stood. Reality then hit me. “Please don’t say anything to anyone.” I was a private guy, and the thought of any more gossip surrounding me made my stomach dip. “My lips are sealed.” He jerked his head towards the exit. “Come on. Let’s get settled and the barbie going.”
Check out where it all began…
Outback Boys, Book 1
Trey has a problem he’s worked hard to manage. It involves not turning into a bumbling mess while around a gorgeous brown-haired man who’s way out of his league. Eight months’ practice from being part of the same LGBTQI+ adventure group, Outback Boys, means he’s perfected the skill.
That’s until an epic stumble makes his head spin and he throws all caution to the wind. But there’s no turning back now, especially since a snow-filled trip means they’re forced to spend even more time together.
Mark has no concerns about the changes unfolding between him and Trey, the giant of a man who’s adorably reserved. He’s been crushing on him for so long that he’s eager to explore more. But when their latest adventure is over and they fall back into the real world, balancing work, life, and a relationship proves more challenging than he envisioned.
Something has got to give, and neither man knows the best way ahead without upsetting the status quo. Can the two Aussies work their way through their new connection, or will they stumble at the first hurdle in their way?
Outback Boys is a sweet and sexy low-angst M/M romance series complete with bruised butts, rope burn, and overworked muscles… all in the pursuit of adventure, of course!
