Release Day Blitz: First and First by Santino Hassell

FirstandFirstFS

Blurb:

Caleb Stone was raised on the Upper East Side, where wealth and lineage reigns, and “alternative lifestyles” are hidden. It took him years to come out to his family, but he’s still stuck in the stranglehold of their expectations. Caleb knows he has to build his confidence and shake things up, but he doesn’t know how… until Oliver Buckley enters the picture.

Oli is everything Caleb isn’t—risk-taking, provocative, and fiercely independent. Disowned by his family, Oli has made his own way in the world and is beholden to no one. After a chance encounter on New Year’s Eve, Caleb is smitten.

As Caleb sheds the insecurities that have held him back for years, he makes bold steps toward changing his career and escaping years of sexual repression. But for Caleb to take full control of his life, he has to be brave enough to confront his feelings and trust Oli with his heart.

“Oli tilted his head up to mouth kisses along my jaw and against my cheek, and all of a sudden, I felt so unbearably in love with him that I wanted to say it. But I didn’t. I beat back my adoration and let him touch me. Which he did.

His lips explored my face before he tilted my head back to press a deeper kiss to my mouth. A strangely tender kiss that had no place on a rooftop, and had no place in a situation that could only lead to the battered ruins of my heart.”

About the Author:

SH image.jpg

Santino Hassell was raised by a conservative family, but he was anything but traditional. He grew up to be a smart-mouthed, school cutting grunge kid, then a transient twenty-something, and eventually transformed into an unlikely romance author.

Santino writes queer romance that is heavily influenced by the gritty, urban landscape of New York City, his belief that human relationships are complex and flawed, and his own life experiences.

A soft sound slid from Oli’s mouth. “You’re dangerous.”

“Am I?”

“Yeah,” he said, “you are. This kind of thing only leads to complications, and complications lead to people wanting things, losing them, and then winding up with broken hearts. Just look at you.”

I brushed thick, black hair off his brow. “The condition isn’t as permanent as it seemed.”
