If I've ever shared this snog, I think sufficient time is past for me to do so again. It's from Moving Day, one of my older Freaya's Bower releases and I always liked this kiss. In my opinion, there needs to be more like it. I've always been a great fan of best friends falling in love after years of knowing one another, and finally getting it right and getting together.
His lips tightened. He didn’t want my excuses. The elevator opened, and my neighbour, Melody, and her daughter stepped out. Jay glanced at the open doors. I was out of time and out of ideas but one.
I yanked his attention from the elevator by grabbing the front of his coat and pulling him close enough to kiss. For a split second of frozen hesitation, I thought I’d made a mistake, but then he kissed me back.
It was a long kiss, sloppy and imperfect. I’d been saving it up for a lot of years and was too frantic to do it right.
Finally, he gave me a little push, but I held on to him, my hands tightening on his clothing, instinctive refusal to let him go forming tight fists of my fingers.
“Mickey, they’re staring.”
Sometimes, characters take some time to get things right, but you know that old adage, practice makes perfect.

Mike Paloso can't count the number of times he's helped childhood friend Jay Charles move. No home of his own, Jay's content to follow his boyfriends, but each breakup means a new pad until the next guy comes along. This time there's been no breakup, no new pad. Instead, Jay's inherited one hell of a fixer-upper from his latest, late, beau, and Mike has to find a way to repair Jay's broken dreams and mangled heart along with the house.
With every reno, there comes some demo, but Mike's not sure he's ready to dismantle his life to rebuild Jay's.
