Blog Tour, Excerpt & Giveaway: Our First and Last By Becca Seymour

True Blue, Book 7

Ian Haughton is a loveable, hardworking nurse. He’s ready for a change and wants to escape and start afresh in the small community of towns he’s grown to love—Kirkby being at the heart.

When the new annual Pride festival launches in this small-town community, Ian is happy to be involved but reluctant to be the lips needed to draw in the crowds at the kissing booth. That is until one man’s lips save him from an uncomfortable moment and end up turning his world on its head.

With miles separating Ian from the future he so desperately wants, he has no idea how he can make it all work out, especially when someone appears to be driving a wedge in his plans.

Some surprises are unexpected, while some revelations come with the sweetest of first—and last—kisses.

Our First and Last is a sweet and sexy M/M romance in Becca Seymour’s bestselling True-Blue series. It can be read as a stand-alone novella, but it’s recommended you read book four, Thinking It Over, first so you have a better understanding of the wonderful characters in this world.

Excerpt:

It was rare someone got my back up. It was even rarer for me to step into a situation and come close to punching a guy. But from the body language alone—Ian’s had screamed of discomfort—I’d been on high alert. And then when I’d heard some of the bullshit spewing out of the dickhead’s mouth, pissed off wasn’t close to the level of anger surging to the surface.

I was fucking livid.

Consent was a gift, and anyone who messed with that and refused to listen deserved to be castrated. And with the douche’s attention so focused on Ian, legit, the sweetest man I knew, I’d come seriously close.

I side-eyed the man beside me, listened to his breathing in the quiet car. Nerves all but radiated off him, and I couldn’t pinpoint if there was a particular reason or a multitude. Either way, I could list off the potential causes for the tension. And I got it. Seriously I did.

When I’d scored a babysitter, my plan had hit me with renewed need to see Ian and clear the air and hopefully get some more action going. That he’d been on his way to see me did all sorts of things to my heart while simultaneously muddling my brain.

But I didn’t want to talk it out in the car. When we spoke about the heavier stuff, I wanted to see his face, read his reaction. Only then could I be sure we were on the same page.

One thing for certain was Ian had no poker face. His emotions, his feelings were always laid bare for those who looked closely enough. And I certainly focused a lot on the man.

He was too pretty for his own good. The combination of his expressive eyes with his sweet smile, right along with his defined body, made the man a wet dream. Once you merged those traits with how caring and funny he was, it made him a dangerous wet dream.

Since it was rare I backed away from danger, I had no desire to run from that lethal combination.

Not anymore.

5 Stars

I’m not sure if I’ve read a book by Becca Seymour that didn’t put a big goofy grin on my face. I think unless her stories take a dramatic turn, they always will. I know I can always count on her to just make me feel good from simply reading her lovely stories.
Ian really was a muscle-covered marshmallow. He’s the kinda character you love to love. A guy like him needs someone equally likable, and Becca created the perfect person for that position: Frankie. I think I even swooned a little when Frankie came to Ian’s defense a time or two or four thousand.
This was a sweet, fun, quick read. It was easy to dive into and finish all in one evening. A perfect end to any kind of day, but if you’re looking for a pick me up—this is it.

5 Stars 

Let me start off by saying this book is outstanding. This story held my interest from the first page all the way to the end. This is the first book I have read by Becca Seymour, but as soon as I can, I am going to read more. I found her to be a wonderful author.

When Ian needs rescuing at the kissing booth at the Pride Festival, he never expected it to be by Frankie. The way they come together is so amazing and sweet. Even though Frankie and Ian live in different towns, they still manage to make it work.

I was hooked on this book as soon as I opened it up. Yes, there were certain parts that upset me, but it was like living in the town of Kirby with them. I’d love to be part of their world; be friends with them. The main thing that stood out was the closeness of everyone.

True-Blue Series

Come visit small-town Kirkby and find love, family, and happiness in this swoon-worthy series.

Many of these books can be read as standalone but Becca recommends readers check out book four, Thinking It Over, before Our First & Last to give you have a better understanding of the wonderful characters in this world.

Check out Thinking It Over, below:

When a young teacher connects with the principal of his school, work, and ex issues, the possibility of happiness and a chocolate Labrador called Penny means they have a lot to think over.

Newly appointed teacher, Jasper Taylor, can’t believe his luck. After a year, he’s found a job with the possibility of a permanent contract, which finally allows him to put his teaching degree to good use. After meeting the silver-haired principal of the school, Jasper discovers his new position offers an additional temptation. He knows he should retreat, but who said avoiding attraction was easy, especially when the man he’s crushing on seems too good to be true?

Well-respected and focused on his career, Austin Harrison is at the top of his game. He’s turned a struggling school around, has finally put up boundaries with his demanding ex, and may just have secured full custody of his chocolate Lab, Penny. The appointment of the new English teacher, Jasper, threatens to unsettle the stability he’s been working towards. Austin’s attraction is immediate, heady, and oh so complicated. But does complicated mean he has to walk away?

Join Jasper and Austin in Becca Seymour’s low-angst, feel-good LGBTQ series, True-Blue Book 4. In the small town of Kirkby, there are busybodies, dogs who cause chaos, families who have the “best” of timing, and good men have the opportunity to find their perfect match. This book can be read as a stand-alone.
