Release Tour and Giveaway for Step by Step by K.C. Wells

Title: Step by Step
Author: K.C. Wells
Genre: M/M Romance
Release Date: March 13, 2017 
Jamie’s life is one big financial mess, and it really isn’t his fault. However, the last thing he expected to find in the library was a Good Samaritan. He might have been suspicious of Guy’s motives at first, but it soon becomes apparent that his savior is a good man who has been lucky in life and is looking to pay it forward. Guy being gay is not a problem. Jamie’s not interested… or so he thinks.
Guy is happy to help Jamie, and the two men get along fine. But when Jamie’s curiosity leads him from one thing to another, Guy finds himself looking at the young man with new eyes. What started out as a hand up is now something completely different….
“Please, tell me you’re tapping that gorgeous ass,” Troy said in a low voice.
Guy followed Troy’s gaze to where Jamie stood next to Cole, talking and smiling with Simon Bexter. Guy smiled to himself. Perfect. Cole had caught on to Guy’s plan.
Then Troy’s words hit home. “Excuse me?”
Troy indicated Jamie with a nod of his head. “Your so-called roommate. Only that’s a euphemism, right?” He gave Guy a sideways glance. “You are fucking him, right?”
“Wrong.” Guy set his jaw. It wasn’t the first time that evening that he’d heard that assumption. “One, he’s straight, and—”
Troy snorted. “And what’s wrong with that? He just doesn’t know what he’s missing.” He leered. “You could be the one to teach him how to take a dick.”
Guy tried not to growl. “And two, I’m helping him get a good start in life. Like someone once did for me.” Right then he was asking himself why he’d invited Troy in the first place.
Troy groaned. “Seriously? Just look at him. That is one beautiful specimen of manhood right there.”
Guy watched how Jamie interacted with others. It was funny, but until that moment, he’d never seen him as a man. He was just…. Jamie. But Troy had a point. Jamie’s creamy skin, gorgeous blue eyes, and slim figure all added up to a beautiful man.

How come I never saw him so clearly before?

Maybe it was because Jamie was straight. Guy wasn’t in the habit of lusting after straight guys. He’d had his fingers burned in the past, and on both occasions, it hadn’t turned out well. Maybe that was why his brain had refused to acknowledge what he was now seeing: Jamie was lovely.

Then Jamie glanced across at him and his eyes lit up.
“Ooh, someone’s happy,” Troy said in a singsong voice. “Look at that smile.” He nudged Guy with his elbow. “You play your cards right and you could have that tasty piece of ass warming your sheets tonight.”
Guy turned to Troy with a sigh of exasperation. “You don’t listen, do you? Not going to happen. You got that? Now go find yourself someone else to pester.” He had no idea why Troy’s suggestions evoked such a strong reaction in him, but he wasn’t about to spend time fathoming it out. Not when Jamie was walking over to him.
Troy huffed and left him to go to the bar, and Guy was fine with that. He’d known Troy for years, but recently he had changed. He’d become a pig, pure and simple. At least Guy could see that now.

Well, no more.

Jamie stopped in front of him, his face glowing. “Thank you.” The words were uttered fervently but quietly.

“For what?”
Jamie’s smile hadn’t dimmed. “I figured it out, with a little help from Cole. You put a lot of thought into that guest list, didn’t you?”
Guy played the innocent. “I’m sure I have no idea what you’re talking about.” When Jamie continued to stare, he had to relent. “Okay, so I might have invited a few lawyers.” He nodded in Cole’s direction. “I got the impression you were a little awestruck when I introduced you to Cole.”
Jamie chuckled. “That would be an understatement. I may have a mild case of hero-worship.”
“Hero?” Guy widened his eyes. “Wow.” He buffed his fingernails on his shirt. “Guess I did good, then.”
Jamie laughed. “Better than good. You are one cool guy, do you know that?”
Fuck, the light in his eyes….

Guy steered himself away from that particular thought, but he had to admit it had shaken him. When was the last time someone looked at me like that?
The sad thing was, he couldn’t remember.
Guy pulled himself together. “So are you done schmoozing for the night, or is Cole about to introduce you to another mover and shaker?”
Jamie laughed again, and Guy loved its natural, unforced quality. Even his laughter makes me feel good. He gave himself a mental slap. He did not want to think about Jamie like that.
Guy smiled. “I’m going to mingle and make sure everybody’s happy. Cole looks like he’s taking good care of you.” He reached out and squeezed Jamie’s shoulder. “I’m glad you’re having a good time.”
To his surprise Jamie gave him a quick hug. “Thank you,” he whispered before releasing him and disappearing in Cole’s direction.
Guy stared after him, shocked by the unexpected display of affection. Then Troy stepped into his line of sight, his lips contorted into a smirk, his eyebrows arched.
Guy slowly turned away and headed into the living room.

Nope. Not going there.

Guy and Jamie's story

I have to start off by saying this is a new author for us and it was a first enjoyable read for us.I normally don't read this kind of gene so it was nice to mix things up a bit and try something new and we are so glad we gave this author a try.We will be looking forward to this authors new releases as the come out.

I loved the plot it was something you don't normally read about strangers doing good deeds and paying it forward so I am glad that was part of what brought this couple together .I really loved this couple they were so cute together.The story also touched on what couples and families encounter as well as friends when those not accepting of the lifestyle one chooses to live.I loved how Guy handled his own family none accepting ways.I really felt horrible for him at the way his ex wife and son dealt with his current lifestyle yet ,it never seem to get him down. Guy seem to take it in stride instead.I loved the fact that this wasn't the kind of story about instant chemistry and acting on it.This story was more about a straight man discovering he is attracted to his room mate and what to do about the feeling he is having.Guy was gay but never once forced his lifestyle on his room mate even though he new from their very first meeting that he was attracted to Jamie.I loved how Guy never forced Jamie to feel the same way and accepted that he was straight .As a reader we felt the struggles that Jamie was having at fighting his attraction he had toward Guy.My heart went out to him as he struggled to deal and find himself and come to grippes whether it was an attraction to all men or just Guy.I feel in this case it was more about finding your on true mate and not whether your gay,straight, or bisexual it was about trusting your hearts chosen choice.

I always pick a favorite character in a story and mine is going to be Jamie.I picked
Jamie as he was just so sweet all the time and I liked how protective he was toward Guy's happiness only wanting the best for him .I liked that he was focused and driven.I loved how he was willing to face and explore the feelings he was having toward Guy even though he had reservations about his own sexual identity.I loved how this couple gradually let things evolved and never once forced each other to feel things other than what they we feeling .I loved how Jamie was willing to explore what could be with Guy instead of letting his own fears get the best of him.I loved how this couple simply fell in love and decided that each of them is what the other needed in order to be truly happy.

I loved the story all around.I really enjoyed Guy as well I thought he was super sweet also had an amazing vibrant personality.I loved how he was willing to trust his heart to another after losing the life of his life.I loved the things this couple did to get to know one another .I loved this couple interactions with their friends they added humor to the story and gave us more than a few chuckles.I really enjoyed that Guy and Jamie had a sense of humor because I believe that it was the way this couple got over the awkwardness when they were with friends or alone.It helped Jamie feel more comfortable with the feelings he was experiencing and the decisions he need to make for himself.

This was overall quite an endearing love story that touch my heart as I loved this couple and wished for a happy ending for them.This story was a page turner for me that had me finishing this story and one sitting as you could not put it down.I loved how the author did an amazing job and creating a story that did not focus on being gay or straight and more on a couple that simply happened to fall in love with each other that happen to be the same sex.This couples sexual chemistry and their sexual encounters definitely burned up the sheets .That added element of erotica and their sexual teasing made their sexual encounters even hotter !I loved as a reader that I was able to connect with the main characters and I did just that.I could not get enough of them.

I recommended read to all.I thought that the author did a amazing job with this story that made you actually feel things for this couple as well as their struggles.

ARC given to us for and honest read and we are giving it 5 stars .I absolutely love it and its characters.

K.C. Wells started writing in 2012, although the idea of writing a novel had been in her head since she was a child. But after reading that first gay romance in 2009, she was hooked.
She now writes full time, and the line of men in her head, clamouring to tell their story, is getting longer and longer. If the frequent visits by plot bunnies are anything to go by, that’s not about to change anytime soon.
