One perfect frame.
That's all it takes to capture an eternal moment; although most people let them pass by without acknowledgement.
I don't waste any.
Not a single one.
If I see something of beauty, I want to experience it, feel it and immortalise it.
If I see someone of beauty, I want to taste them, worship them and memorise them.
I don't have a type, if I like you, I like you.
I don't have a preference.
My bisexuality is a gift, not a defect.
It's the freedom to see beyond gender.
Life is filled with so many ones.
One chance to get things right.
One life to live as you choose.
One decision that gives you acceptance.
One person to fill the emptiness.
Nah, like I said, life is full of ones.
My camera lets me focus on the good times; I develop from life's negatives, and if things don't work out, I just take another shot.
Who needs just one?
Book #5 in the 'Love by Numbers' series.
Can be read as a standalone.
Amazing 6 Star Romance
One by E.S. Carter is book five in the Love by the Numbers series but can be read as a standalone. It is an emotional story and I mean EVERY emotion! It went from steamy heat to hot around the collar anger. It took me from heartache and almost overwhelming heartbreak to "Acceptance is Serenity" to lust and love and everywhere in between!
"With him, I’ve laughed, and I’ve cried. I’ve experienced all-consuming need and mind-blowing pleasure. I’ve shared my scarred soul and broken apart in his arms. But more than all that, I’ve lived. With him, I live."
Isaac Fox is a renowned and sought after photographer. He is happy with his life and freedom and comfortable in his bisexuality. He sees beauty in the world through his lens and just wants to enjoy it.
I lick my lips, swallowing hard as my thirsty lens tracks each millimetre, capturing the very moment that dewy bead hesitates before it tumbles over the edge and disappears into her belly button.
Flynn Phillips is a fitness and health guru. He takes a modeling job where Isaac is the photographer but is in complete denial of his attraction to Iz and strikes out rather than accepting his feelings.
“We’re like fire and gasoline. He will burn me alive, and I will only fuel the flames.”
One is a beautiful romance, a story with heat and heart, but underneath, it has a theme of forgiveness ... of others and yourself. I loved everything about this book and now can hardly wait for the next in this series!!
"His hand extends across the table and rests flat on the surface in front of me. “If you get a chance, take it. If it changes your life for the better, let it. If it’s worth the risk, then gamble because happiness can be f*ing fleeting and forgiveness can be given and accepted easily without the burden of grudges. I’ve accepted your apology. Can you accept my forgiveness?"
One is Infinite
Occasionally a question of "what is your favorite recommendation for new M/M readers?" is made and my go-to is Crossroads by Riley Hart. Now, there is a battle because One now shares space. When a book is brilliant and so well written that you end up re-reading it while searching for quotes for your review, you realize that such a book has gripped your heart and soul. This novel is it.
It's more than a love story. It's a story of loss and hope, anger and forgiveness, condemnation and redemption. Ms Carter weaves a beautiful romance that gives the reader a full immersive experience of every emotion. There are points which you yell and cry in both happiness and sadness. And it's just not one character but both main characters that pull you through that journey.
I could give you detail to the plot, but why waste your time with that. Instead I'll tell you to just READ this book. Whether it's your first same-sex romance or a beloved genre, you can read this novel as a standalone from the rest of the series. However, once you find the love of ES Carter's words, I dare you not to go back and read the rest. Some readers may pause as this is written in British English but don't allow that to dissuade you. If you can read Katy Regnery's Rousseaus series with intermingling of French or Charlaine Harris' Sookie Stackhouse series with southern slang, you can put up with the original version of my native tongue.
I truly hope you'll give this story your time. You won't be disappointment. I've invested it five times over already. I'm sure I'll be re-reading it soon.
