Tis a lovely weekend started here and I’m up and moving around. 🙂 I’m playing hubby’s nurse again, but that’s minimal this time around. Therefore, down to work for me on this lovely Saturday.

Again this week I’m posting from one of my first books: For the Heart of Phillip. First written in 2006 and redone into it’s current format in 2010. We start at Chapter 2 where Phillip meets someone new.
Blurb: Get ready for a wild, sexy ride! Follow along 13 arduous, confusing, wonderful years of Phillip’s life as he tries to decide on his love for two men. Phillip is socially awkward, depressed, a big guy for his age, and finds making friends difficult. Luckily, he meets Andy, who is two years younger than he is. They are best friends and together all the time. On a family vacation when he’s 16, Phillip meets Robert and the two form a fledgling relationship. All is great until Phillip comes homes and finds out a secret that Andrew had hidden for years; that he wants to be Phillip’s man and to dump Robert. Hence begins a push and pull, back and forth for years to come as the two fight over the man they love, Phillip. Both men will stop at nothing to keep him. Who will win the heart of Phillip? Come along for this ride and find out!
The old woman driver, Shirley, shot the boy a glance. “Gotta sit down, hon. Gotta get this bus to school,” she told him in a friendly manner.
Phillip shut his eyes and looked back at the youngster. “Hey, if you wanna sit with me, you can,” he blurted out.
The boy’s face turned to look at him and beamed. He sat down next to the teen. “Thanks.”
The driver smiled, shut the doors, and they rode the rest of the way in silence.
The boys spent the rest of the week sitting next to each other in silence. On Friday morning, Phillip finally worked up some nerve.
“Hey, what’s your name?”
The boy smiled at him quickly. “Andy Bradley-Horner. What’s your name?”
Phillip grinned. “I’m Phillip Marnier. You new in town?”
“Yeah, my parents just moved here. How about you?”
“No, I’ve lived here since I was a baby,” Phillip replied. “It’s an ok town. Not too much to do, but we have some stuff at least. It’s not a total drag.”
