Perseus Freedman

21

It’s no secret that Perseus Freedman is a bit of a snoop. He also likes mysteries, uses humor as a defense mechanism for keeping others at an emotional distance, and is kind and compassionate underneath his sarcastic fa├žade.

Half a year after his dear aunt’s death, Percy arrives back to the house he inherited. Filled with hundreds of loving memories, the house haunts him. Reminds him that anyone he cares about will eventually up and leave.

The best balm for his loss? Selling. The sooner the better.

There’s a hitch in his plan, though.

Despite Percy’s bull-headed approach to get out of there, his neighbors are making things difficult. They’re showing him all the best sides of living in their tight-knit cul-de-sac. They’re showing him that, although not related by blood, they might be the family he craved all along.

One neighbor especially.

The one Percy pretends to hate.

The one he loves to spy on.

The one who is slowly and methodically thwarting his plans and thawing his heart. Callaghan Glover.

But Cal is straight, right? Or perhaps he’s curious. Either way, Percy shouldn’t indulge in temptation that will leave him heartbroken.

He shouldn’t.

He really shouldn’t . . .

Character_Cal_800

Sign: Virgo

noun / vir . go

Definition of VIRGO

: precise, reserved, embarrasses easily, rational, analytical, considerate, chivalrous, highly reliable, wonderfully sarcastic, can be very critical, sexually discreet, loyal

: Cal Glover

Example of VIRGO in a sentence

“Never pick a verbal fight with a Virgo. You will go down.”

Callaghan Glover

22

Cal cares deeply about three things. His family. Dinosaurs. And fake nemesis Perseus Freedman.

When his dad leaves his fourth-time pregnant mom, Cal moves back home determined to keep his family together. To keep those important to him close. It’s hard with his Dad away. Hard to give up his Master’s. Harder when Percy pretends they are not friends.

There’s more bubbling under the surface of their dry quips—a slow burning passion that is driving Cal to crazy lengths. He’s never lied so much in his life, and he’s doing it all to be close to Percy.

Percy, with his softly curved smile and ghost of a dimple. With his honey colored hair flopping over his eyes. Percy, who holds any room he enters captive with charisma and confidence.

A single laugh from his fake nemesis excavates feelings in Cal he never knew he was capable of.

Percy is not back a day, and Cal knows he needs to help his grieving neighbor; needs to show him that he has a home right there in the cul-de-sac if he’ll only accept it.

Every effort to convince Percy to stay is thwarted. Cal wants to believe it’s due to grief and stubbornness, but could he be reading Percy wrong? Maybe their flirting is only in his mind. Can he let himself explore these feelings if Percy is intent on running away just like his dad?

Can he even hold back?

Scorpio Hates Virgo

(Signs of Love #2)

Anyta Sunday

ScorpioHatesVirgo-fPublished ~ 30th August 2017

Genre ~  Contemporary Gay Romance

Synopsis

This year is all about healing the heart, Scorpio. It’s time to leave negative attitudes and stoic facades at the door and let others see the real, more vulnerable you.
Percy Freedman is not grieving. Absolutely not, take that back at once. No, he’s entirely sure that selling his dead aunt’s home and leaving the neighbors he’s known for years is the sane thing to do. Who in their right mind would keep the house that smells like all the hugs he’ll never have again?
Nobody, that’s who.
Well, except his cul-de-sac neighbors. They all seem to think some paint and new furniture will clean the emotional slate. They all want him to stay.
Even his nemesis, Callaghan Glover.
Especially his nemesis, Callaghan Glover.
Lured into a game of Sherlock Gnomes, Percy finds himself hanging out with his neighbors more than might be considered healthy. Along with juggling new and surprising verbal grenades from Cal, and his burgeoning friendship with Gnomber9, Percy is starting to wonder if selling might have been the grief talking after all . . .
That’s right, Scorpio. With a little patience, heartbreak might be a thing of the past . . .
“Scorpio Hates Virgo” contains sarcasm, sexual content, a slightly sappy HEA, and an unhealthy obsession with dinosaurs.
It can be read as a standalone.
Themes: friends-to-lovers, slow burn
Genre: New Adult, light-hearted contemporary gay romance
If you've enjoyed "Leo Loves Aries", you can look forward to a slow burn, will-they-or-won't-they romance, full of sarcastic banter and a delicious slice of unresolved sexual tension.
