Can Jason find the courage he needs to be the man Seb deserves?



When Seb Radcliffe relocates to a seaside town in Cornwall, he feels like a fish out of water. He misses queer spaces and the sense of community he enjoyed when he was living in the city, and decides to open an LGBT-friendly cafe–bar.



Jason Dunn is the builder Seb hires to help renovate the rundown space where the cafe will be housed. Jason is also gay, but unlike Seb, he’s deep in the closet. He’s never had a relationship with another man—only allowing himself the occasional hook up with guys who are prepared to be discreet.



The attraction between the two men is instant and impossible to ignore. But while Seb is out and proud, Jason is terrified of being exposed. With the grand opening of Rainbow Place approaching, tension is growing among some locals who object to Seb’s plans. When things escalate, Jason is forced to choose whether to hide in the shadows and let Seb down, or to openly support the man he’s fallen so hard for.



Although this book is part of a series, it has a satisfying happy ending and can be read as a standalone.

Jenn Review

3.5 – 4 Stars

 

Rainbow Place is a great start to a new series! It’s not an overly angsty read but it’s got a lot of feels! Seb is new to town, he’s out and proud and thanks to his new friends he’s planning to open a LGBT friendly cafe. Jason has lived in that town his whole life and has worked hard for his career as a builder even if it means hiding who he really is. When these two meet there is definitely chemistry but can they turn it into more?

 

I think Jay does a good job brining reality into this book! I didn’t always like Jason’s decisions but felt like I understood them. He was struggling and not intentionally out to hurt anyone. I also understood Seb’s feelings about the situation. Their journey felt true and sometims that hurts a bit! I loved the way it all comes together, how they work it out and yes Jason totally stole my heart! I really liked these guys and their friends and I’m excited to see where this series goes!

Author Bio



Jay lives just outside Bristol in the West of England. He comes from a family of writers, but always used to believe that the gene for fiction writing had passed him by. He spent years only ever writing emails, articles, or website content.



One day, Jay decided to try and write a short story—just to see if he could—and found it rather addictive. He hasn’t stopped writing since.



Jay writes contemporary romance about men who fall in love with other men. He has five books published by Dreamspinner Press, and also self-publishes under the imprint Jaybird Press. Many of his books are now available as audiobooks.
