Since putting his life on hold ten years ago, Oliver Clayton doesn’t know who he is anymore. To his clients at the hair salon, he’s the sassy and confident stylist. To the crowds who come to watch his drag act at the club, he’s the fierce and fabulous Miss Tique. He’s popular. Talented. Out, proud, and self-assured.
He’s also a good actor.
Sebastian Day is content with life’s easy, if not a little monotonous, routine. After several failed relationships, he likes the simplicity of being alone in his truck at his job as a heavy goods driver, spending the weekends with his teenage son, and putting the world to rights with his cat, Marv. He’s not lonely. He isn’t hiding.
At least…he doesn’t think he is until he meets the mesmerising stranger with the red hair and purple lips.
Can Oliver and Sebastian help each other embrace who they are? Or will a cruel twist of fate end their journey before it’s even begun?
(M/M Romance. Not recommended for readers under 18 years of age due to language and sexual content.)
“Are you flirting with me?” …
“Maybe, Is it working?” …
Who We Are by Nicola Haken is a story about falling in love and riding out the waves of life. Both of our MC Sebastian and Oliver have had more than their share of challenges during life. Yet, when they find each other Oliver is very gunshy about starting anything and Sebastian wants nothing more than to find his HEA. When the reasons for Oliver’s hesitancy are revealed and found to not be an issue at all…it is just when these two think they are going to have a peaceful life together that our author rips the rug out from under them.
This was a really good book. Not as emotional as a couple of her previous books…but, still enough feelz and emotion to be a winner! I found myself struggling a bit with this story and it could just be me, but it took me a bit to connect to these characters. Maybe it was just a case of “wrong book, wrong time” but even with the struggles I still think it’s a book worth reading and that Sebastian and Oliver are two great characters. Would like to read Benny and Rhys’ story now as well – and can’t wait to see what our author brings us next!
