    Congratulations on your newest book release, Chris. And thanks for such an interesting post. I confessed to not being a romance books fan, at first – preferring thriller, mystery suspence and such. A friend nudged me – she even lent me her book – and I was hooked. Now I much prefer romance though I still read other genres, too. Romance books are comfort reading for me. 🙂

    Sometimes all we need is for us to see & feel the “heart” of the author in their work that we’re reading. And sometimes that would be enough. Benji has that “heart” you know. And I’m sure as hell felt it right through my core. ^_^

    Congrats on the release! I love it when a book tells a story about a return home and delves into past relationships and throws a good mystery in as well.

    Even though traditional romance seems so constricting, it’s interesting to learn how it’s influenced you!

    I must recognise I read a lot of genres, I’m not focused only in romance. Besides, I need my romance mixed with something else, like an epic fantasy or a good mystery, although lately I turn very often to classic romance which has become a bit of a comfort read for me… my taste has changed and keeps changing, I guess that’s a consequence of growing up and changing your view of life…. Thank you for the post and congratulations on the release

    Romance has always been my first love however I too find myself wanting more than what the traditional genre offers these days. I’ve branched out to PNR or UF if reading M/F however mostly I’m reading M/M anymore. Thanks for your insight.

    I didn’t start as a romance fan. I started with mystery, with Agatha Christie and Erle Stanley Gardner and Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. But once I found romance on my teenager years I don’t see myself going back 🙂

    Good luck with the rest of the tour, Chris

    Thank you for the post and sharing. As a child/young teen I wasn’t really a romance fan either. I actually would only stick to sci-fi/fantasy and the summer reading I would have for school.

    Congrats and thanks for sharing about writing “R”. Sooner than you I started wanting more, and along those lines this sounds great. I’d like to see what you do with the bisexuality; I can identify with going back to an estranged parent; and there are some other interesting dynamics, too. –

    Interesting post. I’ve always liked romance and read it. As long as I can find it in a book, even if it’s a lot or like a secondary theme, I’ll read the book. Now, never give me a book with a not happy ending, that’s not my cup of tea.

    Thank you for the opportunity to comment even though I missed the deadline. (I was out of reach of my keyboard hosting a 90th birthday party for my mom!)

    This book sounds so good and I hope the release goes well.

    I’m probably like so many readers…moving from gothic, to regency, Harlequin to Silhouette, Desire to Blaze with some western romances thrown in. Then to paranormal, scifi and menage, which led to m/m. I don’t think I’ll ever leave this genre. It has all of the above elements of fiction with the added benefit of working through the pain of lovers finding their ‘place’ and ‘acceptance’ in a world designed for heterosexuals. I cannot imagine the fear so many boys and men suffer every day.
