Gemini Keeps Capricorn. Keeps him sexually frustrated.
Wesley Hidaka—outgoing, impulsive Gemini—needs a fake fiancé to prove to his old high school principal that he’s all grown up and can totally keep his truant brother in line.
Lloyd Alexander Reynolds—solid, serious, Capricorn—is Wesley’s RA, and the perfect guy for the role. Who better to have at Wesley’s outrageously flirtatious side than grumpy Lloyd?
This’ll be an adventure.
A really sexy adventure.
Uh oh, why doesn’t this fake fiancé gig feel so fake?
Flirty Gemini will need a pragmatic Capricorn to figure things out.
“Gemini Keeps Capricorn” is a banter-filled, fake fiancé, slow burn MM romance with a heart-thumping HEA. This New Adult, college, friends-to-lovers novel is the third book in the Signs of Love series.
It was approaching midnight by the time he padded over Lloyd’s lawn. He cursed under his breath when he remembered he’d left his phone in MacDonald’s car.
Remembering that Lloyd had mentioned the view from his desk overlooking the street, Wesley hunted for bits of gravel and tossed them against Lloyd’s upstairs window.
It clinked and clattered, and he grinned.
He’d always wanted to do this.
Someone cleared their throat, and Wesley jerked toward Lloyd, shuffling across the grass in slippers and a robe.
Lloyd pointed to the window next to the one Wesley had been pelting. “That’s my room. Mom kindly asks that you move a few feet to your right, or better yet, come inside.”
Wesley cupped his mouth and called out, “Sorry, Cathy!”
“See you in the morning, Wesley!” came a wall-filtered reply.
Wesley headed for the front door.
“How does she know I’m staying over?”
“It’s midnight. You’re play-acting Romeo on my front lawn. She’s a smart woman.”
Lloyd shut the door behind them, and after removing his shoes and jacket, Wesley followed him upstairs.
“Love the look, by the way,” Wesley whispered, tugging Lloyd’s robe belt. “It’s like a flash-forward into the future. You’re the grumpy old codger who loves telling off kids for making too much noise—oh wait.”
Wesley eyed Lloyd up and down by the dim light of the hall. “Maybe it isn’t a flash-forward.”
“You’re right. I won’t be like this in sixty years.”
“What will you be like?” “Grumpier.” Lloyd flicked a light on and gestured Wesley inside his surprisingly cluttered childhood room. Shelves lined an entire wall stuffed with books, board games, and more than one Rubik’s cube. Then there was the bed.
“A twin, Lloyd? We’ll sure be cozy tonight.” Without looking away from him, Lloyd pulled out a rollaway mattress from under the bed using his foot.
“Top or bottom?”
“I’m happy with either,” he said with a leer, “but I’d prefer to bottom.”
Lloyd shut his eyes. “Boy, oh boy.”
Wesley smirked and peeled off his clothes until he was down to his boxers and undershirt.
Avoiding eye contact, Lloyd grabbed him a blanket, then unrobed to a similar state of undress and flicked off the light. “I assume you didn’t come here to sleep.”
“Not quite the proposition I imagined from you, Lloyd.”
A pillow smacked Wesley in the face. He laughed as he settled onto the rollaway and stuffed Lloyd’s pillow under his head.
Glow-in-the-dark stars covered the ceiling, possibly arranged in constellations. “Guess I’m not the only one obsessed with stars.”
Lloyd rolled onto his side and peered down at Wesley. “Why are you here at midnight?”
“Hoping you might sleep-divulge your date of birth?”
“Wesley.”“I told my mom I’m quitting college once I get my undergrad.”
“Because of our conversation?”
“It didn’t come out of thin air.”
“How did you feel when you said it?”
“Guilty, then relieved. Now nervous.” Wesley bit his lip. “As my RA, do you think I’m doing the right thing?”
At the mention of RA, Lloyd folded back an inch. “Let’s arrange a date and work through some options for you.”
“I’m not good at making decisions. I’m inconsistent and terribly indecisive.”
“I’m pretty screwbally.”
“Yet I like you all the same.”
Stay tuned for a new reveal every day!

A bit about me: I’m a big, BIG fan of slow-burn romances. I love to read and write stories with characters who slowly fall in love.
Some of my favorite tropes to read and write are: Enemies to Lovers, Friends to Lovers, Clueless Guys, Bisexual, Pansexual, Demisexual, Oblivious MCs, Everyone (Else) Can See It, Slow Burn, Love Has No Boundaries.
I write a variety of stories, Contemporary MM Romances with a good dollop of angst, Contemporary lighthearted MM Romances, and even a splash of fantasy.
My books have been translated into German, Italian, French, Spanish, and Thai.
