My mother introduced me to the film, It’s a wonderful Life before I reached double figures and I still love it. The story of George Bailey, an ordinary man who does more good than he realises, is so life affirming. George is helped by Clarence, the angel, who earns his wings by the end of the film. More recently, I’ve become a fan of another angel, Castiel, from Supernatural, who discovered what it was like to be human, and, maybe, depending on your point of view, what it’s like to fall in love.
I have two angels that alternate every year to put on my tree. They are not exactly the usual sort. This year is Taz’s turn.
In my story, Not Every Time, Jack thinks of Raz as his guardian angel because he saved his life on the first day they met, and they’ve been best friends ever since. But will Jack ever realise the love he’s been looking for is right in front of him, and is there more to Raz?
For now, the reader can decide, but there will be a sequel from Jack’s point of view next year.
Blurb: What would you give up for love?
Raziel Slade and Jack Hastings have been best friends since Raz saved Jack’s life twelve years ago. Jack has spent years searching for the perfect woman with the help of his wingman, Raz, the man he thinks of as his guardian angel. At a company Christmas party, the world Jack thought he knew turns on its axis, and feelings he didn’t know he had punch him right between the eyes. Can Jack learn to see his friend in an entirely different way?
Openly gay, Raz loves his best friend and has given up more than Jack will ever know to be with him, but he’s never dared to tell Jack how he truly feels, or to reveal his true identity. For twelve years, he has waited in the wings.
Now, with Jack’s sudden epiphany, can these two best friends work out if they have a future together?
