Asking For A Friend
By JJ Harper
Lando writes about romance for a living yet shuns it in his life.
After too many failed relationships, Lando Hardwick has enough. No more dates for him. His taste in men is abysmal. He always falls for the ones who are only looking for fun.
Hesketh Trent has stopped searching for a boyfriend. They only see him as a walking cash machine, only care what he can buy them. What has happened to romance, love?
Getting soaked by scolding coffee is the worst way to start the day, but hell’s bells, the man is divine. Even though the man ticks all his boxes, no way is Lando giving him his phone number. He’ll be like all the rest: one hot night and he kicks him out the door.
But Hesketh doesn’t give up so easily. The cute redhead with no brain-to-mouth filter intrigues him as no man has ever done.
A cat and mouse chase is on, with Lando as the mouse. Once Lando is caught, they can’t stay away from one another.
Until Hesketh makes a mistake.
Thank god for mutual friends who won’t give up on them and push them together when they’re both too stubborn to take the next step.
Asking For a Friend is a stand-alone MM novel with a group of sassy men, a larger-than-life ginger cat called Flanaghan, a stubborn writer, and a man who can plan events but not his own life.

Connor doesn’t say anything. He’s too familiar with dysfunctional family relationships. His family was pretty brutal when he came out. His father and his brothers gave him a good kicking before they tossed him out onto the street. “What did he want? It can’t have been about the party.”
“Kind of. He said he’s dying.” I pick up my beer and finish it. “I’m gonna head home.”
Connor stands up. “You want me to come too?”
“No, stay. You wanted some fun tonight. Go grab it.” I give him a hug and take my phone back from him. “I’ll catch up with you tomorrow.”
I weave through the crowd, dodging groping hands. “Hey, cutie. Where are you going in such a hurry? Let me buy you a drink.”
An extremely good-looking man blocks my path, but I know the type. The kind who wants to bend me over his bed but not invite me to sleep in it. “No, thanks.”
I try to sidle past him, but he sidesteps. “Hey, hey, not so fast, sweetheart. It’s just a drink. C’mon, it’ll be fun.”
I ignore him and push past him straight into another body. “For fuck’s sake.” I shove him away and try to get through. When he doesn’t move, I look up. Fuck my life. It’s Hesketh. “Excuse me.” My voice cracks. I’m so done with tonight and the shit show it’s become.
“Lando?” His eyes light up, then dim just as quickly.
“Yeah, hi. I’m sorry. I’m trying to get to the door.” Please, please just move to the side and let me go.
“Shit, Lando, don’t go, please. Let me explain.” He shifts, and I squeeze between him and another body. When I get outside, I draw in a long breath. It hitches in my throat as my emotions hit overload. None of them caused by my father. I’m indifferent to him. Do I want him to be ill? Not at all, but only in the same way that I hate the thought of anyone being diagnosed with something that could prematurely end their lives. And not from guilt for still not caving over the party either. No, everything I’m feeling now has to do with the man I just bumped into. The scent of his cologne, the brightness of his eyes, then the way they turned wary when he saw it was me. Even the firmness of his body, one I loved to feel pressed against me. It’s the loss, once again, of what could have been that has my head and my heart in turmoil.
I turn around and stomp back inside. He owes me some answers. When I open the door, he’s talking to a cute redhead. The blond guy sees me, though, and he looks sorry. For what and why, I have no clue, but when he tips his head in acknowledgement, I return the gesture.
It’s time for me to forget all about Hesketh Trent.
