    Summary

    Neuro-atypical uni student Baz Pitch has never had a boyfriend, or a first date. He’s never even been kissed. Up until now, he’s been too busy being…well. Neuro-atypical.

    He spends his days at uni and his nights working at the bookshop owned by his eccentric aunt’s on-again off-again boyfriend. He’s not doing it for the money—he doesn’t need any, not with the inheritance his mother left him. All he needs is something to do, something to get him out of the house. But he never expected a simple bookselling job to turn his entire world upside-down.

    Enter Simon Salisbury. He’s not sure where his life’s headed. He’s taken a gap year, and his girlfriend’s gone off to college in California and broken things off with him. When his best friend Penelope takes him to the bookshop near her school for a coffee and a scone, he thinks all he’s getting is advice and commiseration. But then there's Baz.

    Simon’s determined to get to know the bloke at the bookshop, but Baz has spent a lifetime trapped inside his own mind. He knows that letting Simon get to know him means exposing the most vulnerable bits of himself. But love is vulnerable in itself, and sometimes trusting someone with our hearts is a risk worth taking.

    Summary

    Baz is standing in the middle of his room, white shirt hanging loose and open from his shoulders. Seeing Baz undressed shouldn’t still affect me the way that it does, should it? It’s not new anymore, seeing Baz in his pants, but I still feel my face heating up when I walk in on him.

    "I wonder how long he’s wanted this.
    I wonder how long I’ve wanted it.
    I’d say that I didn’t—that the possibility just now occurred to me for the first time. But if that’s true, then why is there a list in my head of all the things I’ve always wanted to do to Baz."
