Today, I’m hosting the Brit Boys: With Toys blog tour — check out the blurb and cover below, then check out the hot super-quick interview with all the authors, and don’t miss the giveaway at the bottom of the post!
Brit Boys boxed sets feature British characters in British locations and are written by British based authors. Each story is unique, fun and seriously hot!
From coast to coast and city to country Brit boys enjoy playing with each other and their toys. Not any old toys, though; guitars, rope, plugs and Moleskine journals all prove to be enormous fun. Throw in a shop that’s wall to wall with kinky ideas, a journalist on the lookout for the next big thing, and Dominants who insist on obedience and there’s sure to be something to cater for everyone’s taste.
Whether it’s a quickie or a slow indulgence, Brit boys know how to hit the spot and they aim to please every time. So take a ride, fly high, come enjoy these sexy boys and their toys.
Today the authors are answering this question… Can you tell us a little about the relationship your characters have in your story? What is it about them that made you want to bring them to life?
Jackson and Liam are strangers as the story opens, but the attraction between them is instant and powerful. Playful at first, their relationship soon becomes serious. Neither man is what he seems at first, and I loved revealing their real selves, the men beneath the helmets…!

The relationship between Alex and Conner is one of power exchange. Conner believes he is the one with all the power, because he’s the one tying Alex up, but actually Alex is the one controlling the relationship.
Aaron and Blake are an established couple in a long-term relationship. They live together, and also work together at a hospital. Aaron is a porter, and Blake is a doctor. This means they often don’t see each properly for days due to their shifts at the hospital, but they both love their jobs, so it’s worth it. It also means they make the most of the time they do have together. They’re very much in love, and like to indulge in plenty of kink.
In terms of bringing them to life, I just really fancied writing about a doctor and a porter!

I’m a bit of a loner myself, and I thought it would be great fun to bring together two blokes who make their living writing for a webzine and basically live in their own little ‘man-cave’ sort of world. I wanted to see what would happen when two guys living in isolation most of the time are forced to spend two whole weeks together in an experience that’s full-on and sometimes right-out dangerous. I wanted to see how the experience would change them and if they would bond or if they would end up hating each other.
My characters have only just met. They both signed up to dating site ‘Gay Hook Ups’ and are perfectly matched with not just their personalities and looks but also their kinks. It doesn’t take long for them to discover this though Darius does have a few secrets about his ‘real’ life that take Rhodri a bit of time to adjust to.
They’re poets. And we don’t see enough writing about poets. Poets have these insane ideas of trying to describe parts of the world with words, and then they get very passionate about the minor details of those descriptions. To some extent it made it easy to write a romance about characters who are prone to bouts of passion. I think that, more than anything else, made me want to bring them to life.
Although I didn’t have a clue who my characters would be or what they did for a living, I did have a theme in mind, which was people hiding how they felt because it was “the done thing” and then discovering that by meeting the right person, their feelings came out after all.
My main character, Kel, is fraught with self-doubt and does not hold himself in high regard at all. He doesn’t feel desirable and this causes problems when the man of his dreams shows an interest. I love exploring the spiritual dynamics of our sense of self and how the way we see ourselves can destroy or elevate the way others see us. I think my gents have a complicated affair which is really all about self-love in the end.
