Welcome to UK Meet author: A E Ryecart

I’m A E Ryecart, or Ali as friends know me, and first off I’d like to say thank you to Rj for inviting me along.  So, a bit about me and my books:

In March 2015 life changed. I decided I’d had enough of the 9 – 5 treadmill and the daily commute. Changes needed to happen, and fast. In a fit of what seemed like madness (but ended up being the sanest thing I’ve ever done) I threw in my day job in the sexy and exciting world of HR (erm, yeah) to write full-time. In May 2015 I published my first book, Imperfect, and since then I’ve published three others and am currently working on a fifth. I write contemporary UK based MM romance, but for me romance doesn’t mean fluff, sweetness and light and more soppiness than you can shake a stick at. I write angst, with an extra serving of angst on the side. And angst for dessert. Call me a sadist if you must, but I love to conjure up complex, difficult men and then put them through the emotional wringer.  Yes, they get their HEA but they have to suffer for it. Poor, poor boys.

Two men. One bored and restless, the other broken and traumatised. How will a chance meeting in a crowded café change both their lives forever?

Confident and cocksure, there’s no question that Josh Cooper is an alpha male. With looks, money and a high-flying City career, he’s got it all. Except that he hasn’t. Trapped in an increasingly claustrophobic relationship, he seeks escape in a series of meaningless and anonymous sexual encounters.

Recovering from a violent past that has left him emotionally scarred, all Alex Fulbright wants to do is to live a quiet life as he slowly recovers and learns how to put his painful history behind him.

From tentative beginnings, Josh and Alex eventually come to find the love with each other that neither thought they would ever have. But life isn’t perfect, and neither man is quite who he seems. Both have secrets and when these are exposed and dragged into the open, the life they had planned to build together is blown apart, leaving their happy ever after no longer the certainty it was.

Urban Love series

Loose Connection (book #1)

Falling in love was easy, making it work is the hard part…

There has never been a time when Rick Taylor hasn't been out and proud. Hiding who he is and blending in is not an option as Rick lives his life by the mantra out and loud, stand out in a crowd. He's poster boy gay with a capital G and that's not going to change - for anybody.

When he accidently outed himself, Matt Connell’s life went into freefall. Cut adrift from his family and the life he knew, Matt carries a ton-weight of emotional baggage as he takes his first faltering steps towards living his life as an out gay man.

Neither should be the man the other is looking for, but when Rick opens his door to the cocky plumber with the beautiful green eyes on a freezing January morning, he knows his life will never be the same again.

Against every danger light that flashes, every siren that screams STOP! and every dire warning from friends and family, Rick and Matt throw themselves into a passionate and all-consuming love affair. But as cracks start to appear in the life they are striving to build together, both are forced to ask the question: can love on its own ever be enough?

The Story of Love (book #2)

No strings. No names. No repeats. Archie Jones and Zack Lorrimer-Grant's ground rules have always kept them safe – until now.

Getting down and dirty with anonymous hook-ups is a game Archie and Zack have always played. It keeps life fresh and exciting and everybody's having fun. Aren't they?

Archie isn't. The hook-ups stopped being fun long ago. It's a game he wishes he'd never started and he wants to stop playing. Now. Right now.

The men keep Zack's fear at bay. Fear that without them, Archie will realise Zack alone will never be enough to make him truly happy.

Terry Franklin isn't a hook-up. He's far more dangerous, and Archie is determined to do whatever it takes to keep the man out of their bed and out of their life.

Where Archie sees a threat, Zack sees a kindred spirit. Terry is the lifeline Zack never knew he needed, but this lifeline could mean the death of him and Archie…

Will be available from All Romance Ebooks (ARe) from 23 August.

Book #3 in the series planned for release late 2016.

Barista Boys series

Danny & Jude (book #1)

Life gets complicated when the thing you want most in the world is for your best friend to be your lover.

For Danny Spears, sex is like fast food: cheap, convenient and ultimately unfulfilling. There’s only one man he really wants and that’s his best friend, Jude Greenwood. That’s never going to happen. As far as Jude’s concerned Danny’s not only his oldest and closest friend, he’s the big brother he never had. The trouble is, they’re no longer boys and Danny’s feelings for Jude are anything but brotherly.

Falling for one dead-end man after another in his search of his happy ever after, the only thing Jude ends up with is a broken heart and shattered dreams. Always there to pick him up and make things better, Danny could be Jude’s perfect man. There’s one big stumbling block: Danny doesn’t do boyfriends or relationships. Any fantasy Jude has about them ever getting together will have to remain just that – a fantasy.

A passionate kiss leads to a night together that was never meant to happen, and the shockwaves rock them both. Should they seize the chance to take their lives in a direction neither dreamed possible? But the stakes are high, and it takes courage to cross the line from friends to lovers. If they take that step, there’s no going back for either of them. Their lives will change forever, but will it be for better or worse?

My current WIP is the second book in the Barista Boys series, with a planned release in the early autumn. Muffin rustling, a thief caught in the act and an offer that seems too good to be true, it’s all happening in a steamy little café tucked away in a Soho back street!
