Today author William Cooper is celebrating the release of his newest ebook I’ll Be Home (happy release day, William!) and only recently another one of his books came out, Texan Summer. Both are m/m stories. He’s letting us share in the celebration by offering a copy of both ebooks for a giveaway to two lucky winners.
His stories will especially appeal to those who like their romances to be non-angsty. William revealed in an interview with author Rowan Speedwell to “prefer non-angsty reads and stories that aren’t heavily focused on sex every two pages, so that’s what I tend to write.”
Here’s a little bit more information about the books:
Collin and Dylan aren't your average brothers - they've been completely in love with each other since they were teens. After their father catches them kissing on the night of their high school graduation, the twins find themselves homeless and on their own.
Six years later, the two brothers have graduated from college and moved on with their lives. But one day, out of the blue, they get a call from their mother. Their father has had a heart attack and she wants them to return home. The journey back to their conservative Texas town causes all of the old hurt and heartache to rise to the surface.
Will the trip home end in more heartache, or a long yearned for reconciliation?
CONTENT ADVISORY- This book contains incest between brothers.
I looked over at Dylan as we walked into the house. "Race you upstairs?"
He flashed me one of his killer smiles. "You're on!"
We broke out into a sprint toward the stairs. I could picture Mom shaking her head at us. If it hadn't been our graduation night, she would've scolded us for running in the house.
"You boys hurry up! Your mom made cake, and you know she won't let me have any until you get back!" Dad yelled after us.
"We will!" I promised.
I barely beat Dylan into our shared bedroom. I smiled at him before sticking out my tongue. Dylan laughed and flipped me off in return. Once the door shut, we both started stripping off our dress clothes. It was June, and the heat was ridiculously high outside. Wearing dress clothes all evening had us soaked to the bone in our own sweat.
When I glanced up at Dylan, he had stripped down to only his black dress pants. His torso had already become tanned from walking around shirtless. I grinned and walked over to him. "You look so sexy like that," I whispered into his ear when I wrapped my arms around him.
Dylan chuckled before turning around to face me. "You look pretty damn sexy, too."
I smiled and pressed my lips against his. Dylan eagerly opened his mouth, inviting my tongue inside. Both our cocks had gotten rock hard, and we ground them together, all thoughts of cake and our parents flitting from my mind. I was close to coming when our bedroom door opened.
"Collin, what's taking you and Dylan so long…? What the hell are you two doing?" My father pounded his fist against the wall so hard our pictures began to rattle on the walls.
Dylan and I jumped apart, our cocks still tenting our pants. "D-d-dad… I can explain…"
Dad's face turned an angry red as he clenched his jaw. "I don't want to hear any of your damn excuses. That was disgusting. Pack your shit and get the hell out of here, you sick freaks."
"But Dad!" I protested.
Dad raised his arm like he was going to strike me. I flinched, expecting a blow; instead, he just stalked out of our room. We heard the front door slam and his truck pull out of the driveway a minute later. Tears began to escape from my eyes. When I turned to face Dylan, he had gone deathly pale and sweat and tears were dripping off of his cheeks.
I pulled him into my arms and held him. Dylan buried his face into my shoulder and started crying. "I'm so sorry, Dy. I'm so, so sorry." God… what the hell are we going to do now?
I'll Be Home
Since getting together romantically with his best friend Blake on the Fourth of July, Cameron hasn't seen his new boyfriend in three months. Blake's attending college in Seattle, and dealing with a cross-country romance has its challenges—nightly phone calls aren't enough to ease Cam's fears that a sexy sorority girl will snare Blake's interest. With Christmas approaching, Blake is home for the holidays, but the only thing Cam really wants for Christmas—Blake's presence—is a gift he knows can't last.
When I opened the front door, my jaw dropped and my heart rate picked up. It sure as hell wasn’t a salesman.
“Hey, Cam,” the tall man standing at the door said.
It took a minute before the shock wore off and my brain was able to function again. I squealed and wrapped my arms around his waist, causing him to stumble backward. “Oh my God, Blake! What are you doing here?”
Blake laughed and hugged me back. “I came to see my boyfriend.” He leaned down and pressed his lips against mine. “I haven’t seen him in a couple months.”
Once the immediate rush of adrenaline from seeing Blake wore off, I was able to look him over closely. He had changed a lot since the last time I had seen him. His hair had grown longer; it was no longer cropped in a buzz cut, but now hung down to his ears. And his eyes were still gorgeous—deep chocolate brown and full of mirth. He grinned, showing off a smile that never failed to melt my heart.
I laughed and pulled Blake inside, kicking the door shut behind us. “You didn’t tell me you were coming home for winter break! I assumed you were going to stay out in Seattle again.” I couldn’t stop grinning as I looked at Blake. Seeing him suddenly made me forget my annoyance at being bothered on my day alone.
“I missed you.” Blake chewed on his bottom lip. “You’re not mad at me for not telling you in advance, are you?”
Seeing Blake show nervousness made him look even sexier. He normally had confidence oozing from his pores. The rare times when he was vulnerable were priceless. “No, I’m not mad. I’m thrilled!” I leaned in and kissed him on the cheek.
