Romance Gay | Romance Contemporary

In book two of The Bristol Collection, Josephine charms and excites with Mas and Perry's romance in STUFF.

Right from the get-go, Myles jumps in, spouting life into her characters and making readers take notice of the quirky and flirty character that is Tobias "Mas" Maslin. Mas is young, flirty and fun. He is an unfiltered as they come and doesn't seem to be ashamed of who he is and what he does. Though Mas has his own fair share of problems, like losing his job and being evicted from his home, that jump in his step never really goes away. He's such an uplifting character and I had so much fun reading about him.

Myles pairs Mas up with a vintage-loving recluse named Perry. He runs a clothing store called Cabbages and Kinks, but doesn't do a very good job of it. His interests lie in his creations, making art out of nothing. Perry is totally adverse to technology and change, so seeing him deal with someone as eccentric as Mas is fun to watch. The differences in characters are stunning, but Myles makes it work so well.

I found myself laughing and smiling throughout this entire book. STUFF became an escape for me, taking my mind off the hassles of real life and throwing me into a world that was as fun and as carefree as its characters. Brimming with life, STUFF completely took me by surprise with its charm and presence. From now on, Josephine Myles will be an auto- buy author for me.

When Mr. Glad Rags meets Mr. Riches, the result is flaming fun.

The Bristol Collection, Book 2

Tobias “Mas” Maslin doesn’t need much. A place of his own, weekends of clubbing, a rich boyfriend for love and support. Too bad his latest sugar daddy candidate turns out to be married with kids. Mas wants to be special, not someone’s dirty little secret.

When he loses his job and his flat on the same day, his world starts unraveling…until he stumbles across a vintage clothing shop. Now to convince the reclusive, eccentric owner he’s in dire need of a salesman.

Perry Cavendish-Fiennes set up Cabbages and Kinks solely to annoy his controlling father. Truth be told, he’d rather spend every spare moment on his true passion, art. When Mas comes flaming into his life talking nineteen to the dozen, he finds himself offering him a job and a place to live.

He should have listened to his instincts. The shop is already financially on the brink, and Mas’s flirting makes him feel things he’s never felt for a man. Yet Mas seems convinced they can make a go of it—in the shop, and together.

Warning: Contains an eccentric, bumbling Englishman, a gobby drama queen, fantastic retro clothing, scary fairies, exes springing out of the woodwork, and a well-aimed glass of bubbly. Written in brilliantly British English.
