Overview

The best things in life aren't free...they're freely given.

Ben Lethbridge doesn't have many vices left. After raising his little sister to adulthood, he wasted no time making up for the youth he lost to responsible parenting. Two years of partying it up-and ignoring his diabetes-has left him tethered to a home dialysis regimen.

He can do his job from his flat, fortunately, but most of his favourite things are forbidden. Except for DVD porn...and fantasizing over Ollie, the gorgeous, purple-haired skateboarder who delivers it.

Their banter is the highlight of Ben's lonely day, but his illness-ravaged body is the cruel reality that prevents him from believing they'll do anything more than flirt. Not to mention the age gap. Still, Ben figures there's no harm in sprucing himself up a bit.

Then one day, a package accidentally splits open, revealing Ben's dirty little secret...and an unexpected connection that leaves him wondering if he's been reading Ollie wrong all this time. There's only one way to find out: risk showing Ollie every last scar. And hope "far from perfect" is good enough for a chance at love.

Warning: Contains superhero porn comics and a cute, accident-prone delivery guy with colour-changing hair. Readers may experience coffee cravings, an unexpected liking for bad mullets, and the urge to wrap Ollie up and take him home

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

Barging In is a book I could read over and over again. Josephine Myles has populated it with loveable heroes, introduced a unique and colorful setting, and infused it with incredible energy and humor. This is a book that just might leave you cheering, and will most certainly reinforce your belief in the power of love.”
—Top2Bottom Reviews

“An amazing book. I loved the characters, the descriptive setting, and the passionate interactions between Dan and Robin. I can’t wait to read more from this author!”
—MM Good Book Reviews on Barging In

“Quirky from the start, the book is funny in a deadpan way and there’s plenty of situational humour too, though the comedic aspect never overwhelms the romance or the drama of the unfolding relationship.”
—Reviews by JesseWave on Barging In

    Good story

    I liked the characters and how well they worked together. The attraction between the two characters felt real.

    Don't waste your time and money

    I wanted to like this, but I don't get into self-pity and after 50 pages it was still a total pity fest. No. I pulled it out of active and archieved it, won't read it at all.
