Jamie’s life is one big financial mess, and it really isn’t his fault. However, the last thing he expected to find in the library was a Good Samaritan. He might have been suspicious of Guy’s motives at first, but it soon becomes apparent that his savior is a good man who has been lucky in life and is looking to pay it forward. Guy being gay is not a problem. Jamie’s not interested… or so he thinks.
Guy is happy to help Jamie, and the two men get along fine. But when Jamie’s curiosity leads him from one thing to another, Guy finds himself looking at the young man with new eyes. What started out as a hand up is now something completely different….
For any “Guy” out there: please contact me and we can set up a “spontaneous” meeting then I can be your “Jamie”.
Damn, everybody and I mean everybody needs a Guy in his life.
When Jamie thinks his day couldn’t get any worse, it does. First, he lost one of the three jobs he has, to sustain his education, he is late with his rent, and the landlord just texted him that he needs to evacuate the house at the end of the week. All this happens in a public library, and he desperately tries to keep it together. He doesn’t want to lose it in front of other people. That is where, Guy, a God send, a Good Samaritan (or as for me a Disney Prince) comes along, and with an interesting offer saves Jamie’s day.
Before your mind goes all dirty (and don’t deny it, I know you all very well) the offer is not sexual. Actually, it’s so unbelievable that Jamie accepts it. Well, who wouldn’t…? Are you curious enough to want to know what Guy offers to Jamie? Yeah I thought so. So here:
Guy at the age of Jamie, seventeen or so years ago, got the same offer what he, now offers to Jamie, that of helping him out. He offers Jamie a place to live, he will pay for his tuition, all he needs to do is to accept it. No strings attach, the only condition is that when Jamie has the possibility, he will need to help someone the same way as he was helped by Guy.
It turns out the place is actually Guy’s house. Guy is a rich man. He just sold his multimillion-dollar company so he’s set for life. When Jamie finds out that Guy is gay, he’s concerned that Guy will eventually want a kind of payback. Guy seems to read Jamie like an open book, and he assures Jamie that that will never happen, he’s not into straight guys anyway, and well that’s just a little lie from Guy.
The book is Jamie’s journey from him being straight to finding himself very attracted to Guy. All starts when, one night Guy brings home a hookup, and he listens in what’s happening next door. Then Guy has this habit of walking naked in the house. Guy is big and hairy, everywhere *winkwink*. Jamie starts to notice Guy’s body and his feelings toward Guy confuses him. He confides his feelings with his friend Ryan, who turns out to be bi. Ryan explains to him that he, Ryan, is not attracted by what’s between someone legs, he’s attracted what’s between someone ears.
Through meeting Guys children (the same age as Jamie), parties, and Jamie becoming twenty-one, it seems that the inevitable is inevitable…and Jamie makes the first move…
Well dear “Guy”, if you read this please call me. My number is…
