Steamy, gritty, action-packed MC Romance

TSE: Skulls the Early Years - Jessie Cooke

I enjoyed this story as this gave me a look into the pasts of Ajei and Tse. These two had a strong connection and were willing to do whatever they could for each other. The beginning of their story was rather gritty, but their love surpassed the bad. This story was full of love, family, pain, steamy scenes, and happiness.

I received a copy of this story through Enticing Journey Book Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.

Another angsty trip with the MacRae clan.

Picture This - Jolie Vines

Friends with benefits find their way together. Taylor and Wasp were great together. I loved the strength that Taylor showed when she was sacrificing her future for family. She knew what she wanted but was willing to give it up. Wasp was so understanding yet so vulnerable. This series has kept me enjoying the MacRae family, and I look forward to more.

I received an ARC of this story as a gift, and this is my unsolicited review.

Blog Tour: Retribution (Youngblood Series #2) by Monique Orgeron with an excerpt



Series: Youngblood Series #2

by Monique Orgeron


Release: August 1, 2019


Genre: Romantic Suspense






My retribution may be over, but my future remains controlled by my past.


 A son always pays for his father's sins.


Stripped of everything, I was punished for crimes I believed my father was wrongly accused of. 

My need for revenge blinded me.

Faced with the truth, I was forced to make a choice that went against what I’d fought so hard for. 

With my atonement complete, I’m asked what would make me happy. 

I had it once and the very person who gave it to me is the same one who robbed me of it.


How can I look forward when I’m tortured by memories of her?


The girl I loved with all my heart and now hate with all I am. 


Sometimes love isn’t good for you.


Sometimes, you have to love yourself enough to see the destruction ahead and simply move out of the way.

I once loved a boy who was determined to continually hurt himself.

For a chance to prove himself worthy. 

He was worthy in my eyes, but it wasn’t enough.

Then a secret opened my eyes to see the years of pain and hurt the future held.

Leaving, I took a risk for a better future, but my return unravels a spiral of betrayal. 

I know I will be at their mercy.

Meet the Author:

Written by Monique Orgeron’s eldest, most beautiful, and intelligent daughter. (My sister is going to hate this part.)


My mom happens to be the most caring, loving, and stubborn person I know, well anyone knows. She gives 100% percent of herself to everyone and has given up so much of herself for my sister and I. For twenty-one years she has poured her heart and soul into making sure we know that we are loved and that we can do anything we put our minds too, but it was about time she figured that out about herself. 

Up until this year I hadn’t seen my mom do anything for only her, but this book has allowed her to travel the world through the pages of a book, make new friends, and feel the joy of doing something exciting. 

There is a new light behind her eyes and it is just making me feel more joy than she can ever imagine. While she might be annoying most of the time, I am so thrilled that she is finally allowing herself to grow as a person and not spend all of her energy on her family. 

It has been a long journey of self-discovery for my mom; she has gone from domestic supermom to domestic goddess throughout the process of writing. 

We are so very excited and proud of you! I love you as big as the world.


-Bria and Tony

Two stupid shows later, I’m still watching the clock and window, waiting for her to be dropped off. Another half an hour show later, I find myself on the steps of my porch. Looking around, I see something off in the distance but it’s not a car. Standing, I walk off the porch and walk down the walkway. The first thing I recognize is the poofy pale pink dress. “Jolie.”

Without another thought, I go running down the street to meet her. The closer I get, I see she’s carrying, her high heel shoes in her hands and she has her dress gathered up in the front, so she won’t trip on it while walking. 

“Jolie, what’s wrong?”

Rolling her eyes, she practically grunts. “Nothing.”

She tries to get past me, but I block her path. “Where’s your date? Why are you walking?”

“I’m fine. Can you please move?”

She tries to get past me again, but this time I grab her by the arms, stopping her. “Jolie don’t. Not with me. You don’t always have to be strong.”

She relaxes under my hold, deflated and says, “I don’t know where he is.” 

“Did he…” Now I’m burning with rage.

“No! Calm down.” She jerks out of my arms and says, “He never even got close enough to try.”

What? Did she want him to try? 

Jolie takes a step back, letting out an exaggerated huff. “All he wanted to do was take a picture and drink. He wouldn’t even dance with me. Then he had the nerve to want us to go to a party without even enjoying the dance.”

Dumbass, I know his type. Doing whatever it takes to look cool with all the guys, ignoring his date until the big party. Then it’s on, he’ll become the aggressor trying to get her alone and get what he wants without putting any effort into her needs.

Jolie trying to get it all out, continues, “By the time he wanted to leave, he was drunk and started teasing about shit I never agreed to.”

I fucking knew it! “Like what? What the hell was he saying?!”

Jolie has the nerve to roll her eyes at me, “Nothing, I handled it.”

That brings a smile to my face. I know she can handle herself; I just hate that she has to. Not wanting to show how much it bothers me, I tell her, “Good riddance then.”

My choice of words doesn’t go over well though. She looks at me, ready to kick me in the balls which is what I’m sure she did to the other guy. “Really?! That’s what you have to say? Why are all you boys so stupid? All I wanted was to dance.”

“You didn’t dance at all, even with your friends?”

“I did, but I wanted to dance with…never mind, you wouldn’t understand.”

I understand perfectly and I know how to solve it. I grab her hand, pulling her back in the direction of the school.

“Hey, what are you doing? Where you taking me? Shane, stop.”

“We’re going back to the school.”

“Why? No! Shane, we can’t!” She’s trying to nail her feet down to the concrete, making it harder to pull her. Doesn’t matter though, I continue dragging her.

“The hell we can’t. You want to dance? You’re going to dance.”

Sounding frantic, she tries convincing me, “Shane, they won’t let you in. I’m fine. Please, let’s go home.”

She’s right, they won’t let me in. But I can get her close enough to the hear the music. No matter what she says or how hard she tries pulling out of my grip, she is going to have that damn dance.

“Shane, what do you think we’re going to do?”

“We’re going to dance.”


We finally make it to the school, and I lead us to the side of the gym where the dance is being held. Once we’re on the side, I’m pleased to see I was right. The music might be muffled but we can still hear the band playing. So, I turn and tell her,

“Put on your shoes.”

“This is ridiculous, Shane.”

In a firm voice, making sure she knows I’m not playing, I say, “Do it.”

With another exaggerated puff, she gives up and says, “Fine, but this is stupid.” She grabs my arm to help her balance while putting her heels back on and then stands straight, wiping down her dress and gives me a frumpy frustrated look. 

The song playing isn’t right, it’s too fast. So, I’m standing here looking like an idiot, waiting and hoping the next song will be a slow. This will be our first dance and if it’s the last, I want to make sure I get to hold her close in my arms. Jolie’s looking around like this is the most ridiculous thing ever. She remains there though, shifting around with her hands locked in front of her, looking anywhere but at me. 

There’s a pause in the music then the next song the band starts to play is slow and perfect. It’s, ‘To Make you Feel My love.’ Without warning, I grab Jolie’s hand and pull her into my arms, but she automatically stiffens. It’s not what I want. She shouldn’t be nervous. This is us. 

Looking down upon her, I tell her, “Just relax.”

The second her eyes look up at mine, I’m a goner.

“I don’t know how to do this.”

“It’s me, Jo. Only me and you.”

Her eyes soften, and her mouth curls slightly as I reach for her other hand and lay it gently and securely in mine. Repositioning my other arm around the back of her lower waist, I hear a hitch in her breath. My eyes close for only a second, wanting to hear it again. Her eyes rise again and this time, lock with mine and I begin. One step forward and one step back, her smile grows, bringing me more joy than I’ve ever known. As we continue to dance slow, it becomes painful having her this close. Hearing the song and having her finally in my arms where I’ve always wanted her is more than I can take. I never should’ve allowed any other guy the chance to worm his way into her life.

Jolie surprises me by laying her head on my chest as we slow to more of a sway. I wonder if she can hear the beating of my heart. Because it’s hers, it always has been.  

Bending, I lay my cheek on the top of her head and move my hand up, feeling her bare skin. Continuing, I slide it up to caress her neck. 

“I love this song.” she says in a whisper.

“Then it’s our song.”

Jolie’s head rises, bringing her eyes back to mine. “Shane?”

It’s time. “There’s never been a question where you belong. I’ve been an idiot Jolie, but not anymore.”

The song stops and we continue to stare into each other’s eyes. Finally, she breaks our gaze and tries to pull out of my arms.

I know she’s shocked and confused by what I said. I just never expected no response. Then the one she ends up giving me, isn’t even close to anything I wanted, 

“Thank you for the dance.”

“Not yet.”

“No, Shane! You can’t keep doing this to me. I’m tired of trying to get you to love… shit! I’m tired, okay?”

She didn’t finish what she was going to say but I know exactly what it was. She’s tired of trying to get me to love her. Love was never an issue. I’ve loved her practically since the day I met her. My mother was so right when she said, “One day.” It was always there. I just kept denying it, not wanting or needing anyone in my life to love. Especially not the younger girl from across the street. But for some reason, I can’t risk losing her either. She’s getting older and I am no longer the only one seeing her for the beautiful woman she’s becoming. She’s mine and she needs to know it. 

Bringing her back to me, I lay a hand on her beautiful face, taking her all in. 

Jolie licks her lips and with a shaky voice asks, “Are you going to kiss me again?”

“If I do, you need to understand there’s no going back. You’ll be mine, forever.”

“I’m already yours, Shane.” 

I’m so caught up in her eyes, seeing the truth behind them. My other hand reaches out to hold the other side of her face and my eyes dance around each of her features, then she puts me out of my misery and says, 

“Kiss me.”


Review Tour: Kill Shot by Amber Malloy with a giveaway, an excerpt, and a review


Kill Shot
by Amber Malloy




GENRE: Romantic Suspense






Invited to speak for the United Nations, International Attorney Ashe Marcille is on the fast track. However, everything changes when she finds her law partner dead. Left with no option but to abandon her hard-earned career, she goes on the run.


Walker Knight, owner of a high-tech security firm, left the spy games years ago. A former agent for J8, he had no intention of returning to that life until the agency calls in one last favor. It should have been an easy job—pick up then drop off a lawyer with no questions asked. But, best laid plans…


Attracted to the attorney from the minute he laid eyes on her, Walker sets out to solve her case. Until he can figure out who wants her dead, he’ll have to keep her close…very close.







As he stepped onto the wraparound porch to unlock the door, he promised himself to make this visit a quick in and out. J8 wanted Ashe released into their custody. If the agency didn’t have a history of turning and burning their targets, he would have given her up willingly a few weeks back.


Walker reached for the ancient lock and opened the front door to the blue-colored wood home. A full-on assault of rich tomato sauce intermingling with the ocean breeze smacked him in the face.


It had been closed off for the better part of a decade, so Walker hadn’t stepped into it since his teen years. Before Ashe’s arrival, sheets had covered the furniture. He took in the bright tones of blue and cream that warmed the house.


Following the sound of voices toward the patio, he noted the changes she’d made to the cottage since he’d stashed her there. Once furnished in thick fabrics and dark tones, the light and airy ambience enhanced the feel-good energy of his old summer haunt.


The sound of Ashe’s laughter drew him into the kitchen, where pots boiled and bubbled on top of the stove. His stomach rumbled from the heady aroma, but the sight of Ashe shook him to his core. Walker hadn’t felt this type of attraction to a woman in years.


Clad in a bikini and a skimpy cover-up, she stood outside the French doors. Wild, reddish-brown curls streamed down her back. He’d suggested she change her appearance, but he’d had no idea Ashe would resemble something out of a 1950s B-movie.


The absolute best genre ever!


“Are you looking to replace that flooring upstairs?” Nosey neighbor Tom’s nasally tone snapped him back to reality. “Dan, two streets over, is a whiz with carpentry.”

Ashe raked stray leaves from the pool with the cleaning pole. “Not sure. I’ll have to check with—” She stopped mid-sentence. “Speaking of the devil.”


Walker stepped out of the house, and she greeted him with a smile.


“Walker!” Tom scrambled to get up from the lounge chair. His nosey-ass neighbor had built his deck above eye-level of the fence, a fact that hadn’t gone unnoticed by his grandparents. “What’s it been…ten years?”


He waved for the old man to take a seat before he fell over. “I haven’t been able to get out this way much,” he admitted. Without his grandparents around, he’d felt no need to visit.


“Military, right? Then what? Private work for the government?”


Walker didn’t answer. He could tell the man didn’t know anything.


“Your fiancée here has been quite the hit around the neighborhood.”


“How so?” he asked, intrigued about Ashe’s title, among other things. She’d remodeled his grandparents’ home, cooked and flirted with his lusty neighbor. Apparently, the gorgeous attorney had been bored.


“What am I going on about? You two haven’t had a proper greeting. Go on and give your fella a smooch hello.”


“We’re fine. We don’t need to—” Walker began.


Ashe’s soft lips cut off his next word. Against good common sense but not his will, he put his hands around her waist and deepened their kiss.


A warm ball of lust spread through his body. Revved up, he wanted more, but she pulled out of his grip with a wink. “I’ve got dinner going. We’ll catch you later,” Ashe said to Tom.


“Oh, okay. Yeah, I’ve got a new Jeopardy to watch anyway,” Tom muttered.


Walker grabbed her hand and led her into the house.


With a sexy laugh, she hurried to close the double doors. “Sorry about that. The snitch would have ratted us out to the whole neighborhood by the time the ten o’clock news hit the air.”


Walker bit back a smile. “So, we’re engaged now…”




Amber Malloy dreamed of being a double agent but couldn't pass the psyche evaluation. Crushed by despair that she couldn't legally shoot things, Amber pursued her second career choice as pastry chef. When she's not writing or whipping up a mean Snickers Cheesecake, she occasionally spies on her sommelier. Amber is convinced he's faking his French accent.

Gritty romantic suspense with heat

Kill Shot (Spies R Us #2) - Amber Malloy

Very gritty story with a lot of interconnections between Ashe and Walker. Their heat and attraction to each other was intense at times. I loved how Walker accepted the feelings quickly and helped Ashe with her past issues despite the secrets. Ashe was a strong survivor. I enjoyed turning the pages, waiting to see what twist came next, and I recommend this story.

I received a copy of this story through Goddess Fish Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.

by Kelsey Kingsley


Genre: Friends-to-Lovers/2nd Chance Romance


Release: August 26, 2019


Cover Design: Danny Manzella





Guitarist Chad Wilcox's life isn't going according to plan. 


At thirty, he never thought he'd still be unmarried and living with his parents. And with the added stress of his poor health, he's convinced the only thing within his control is the success he's found as a rockstar.


After reconnecting with his childhood best friend, Chad sets into motion a new plan to regain control over his happiness, and things start looking up. But when he finds himself diagnosed with a potentially debilitating chronic illness, he begins to wonder...


Is this as good as it's going to get? Or is it at all possible for a guy like him to get everything he's ever wished for? 




“What’s that look for?” she asked with a giggle, as she reached around to secure her bra.

I shook my head as a smile stretched over my lips. “Nothin’. Just …” I swallowed at the warmth crowding my heart and my lungs. “You’re my best friend.”

She tugged a tank top on and sighed, her exhale lingering in the air. “You’re mine.”

Mine. The word was simple and yet held the world. It was an agreement, it was possession. It was an invisible contract that lingered between us, and I would’ve gladly used my own blood to sign on the dotted line.

But instead of pricking a finger and sealing the deal, I simply nodded, as only two words left my mouth.

“I’m yours.”

Fun read that touched my heart.

Work Violation - BJ Harvey

I am enjoying this series. Here, Jax and Ronnie have steam together but must hold back because of circumstances. The humor in all the interactions between characters was great. I love how the humor was offset by the true emotions the characters felt. It touched my heart.

I received a copy of this story through Enticing Journey Book Promotions, and this is my unsolicited review.

Preorder and Chapter Reveal: Nick (O'Connor Brothers #3) by A.S. Kelly, 99 cents on preorder



Series: O’Connor Brothers

by A.S. Kelly


Release: August 20, 2019


Genre: Contemporary Romance






I’ve never liked lies. I’m an honest guy: I say exactly what I’m thinking without any filter. Without considering the consequences.

That’s why people always think I’m an idiot. Someone who only wants to have fun, who never has any problems.

Someone who never worries about the future.

I’ve made my decision.

I’ve chosen myself and left everything else behind.

But what happens when karma comes back to turn your life upside-down? When you find yourself standing in front of someone who could break down all of your walls?

The only woman capable of looking past the façade, and seeing Nick O’Connor for what he really is: a liar.

Would it make sense to keep lying? And, for the first time in my life, could I live with just being Nick?

It’s a dangerous game, a match to be played.

The last match. My match.


I’m Nick O’Connor, and the whistle’s about to blow: I’m about to face the biggest match of my life. But will I be able to fight until the end? Or will I give in, like I always do?

Because I already know I’m going to lose this challenge. We both will.

Because she deserves everything.

And I have nothing to give.

I park the car and swing the driver’s door open, throwing myself out into the car park. I slam it shut behind me and sprint towards the entrance, anxiety choking me and excitement exploding through my veins. I stop for a second in front of the automatic doors and take a deep breath, trying to calm myself down before I throw up the entire contents of my stomach all over the entrance. I place one foot inside, ready to face this new challenge, when a huge, muscly mass smacks against my left shoulder.

“Don’t even think about it,” he warns, pulling me aside.

“I got here first.”

“It’s not a race.”

“Looks like it is.”

“No, it’s not, because you’ve already lost.”

I turn to face him, so that we’re chest to chest. “Get out my way.”

“I don’t think so.”

“Oh, come on!” An irritated voice floats in between ours. “Why do you two always have to be like this? All these muscles are blocking off your brains.”

Chris wriggles between us and steps inside first, then turns to look at us from the other side of the sliding door with a satisfied grin.

“I’ll be her favourite aunt anyway,” she says, teasing us both, before jogging down the hospital corridor, her flame-red hair falling in waves down her back.

“You’re both losers.” Evan takes another whack at our pride before he strides past us to follow his mother, his hands shoved into the pockets of his jeans and his hood pulled up over his head.

“No way,” Ryan takes advantage of my confusion to step inside the hospital before me. “She can be the favourite aunt, but I’ll be her favourite uncle,” he states triumphantly, before running off behind them. He frustratedly slips in between Chris and Evan, making Chris laugh, as he wraps his enormous arms around their shoulders and protectively pulls them in towards him.

Is his unlikely, messed-up family not enough for him? Does he really have to take the only joy left in my life?

Like fuck he will.

I’ll be her favourite uncle.

When the four of us get to the waiting room, we’re met by Ian, so anxious he’s almost ready to pass out.

“So?” Chris goes over to him right away. “How’s it going?”

“Good,” he says, rubbing a hand over his face. “At least, for them. I…I feel…”

“Oh shit!” Ryan catches him before he can hit the floor.

“Come on, what’s the big deal?” I say, stupidly. What a dick.

Chris glares at me. “If you don’t have a vagina, you’re not allowed to comment.”

She sits down next to Ian and helps him take a few deep breaths, making him rest his head on his knees.

“Breathe, Ian. It’s just all the excitement,” she says kindly.

“It’s just that you’re a loser,” Evan tells him, winding him up.

This kid is starting to remind me more and more of Ryan. I feel really sorry for Chris having to put up with them both.

“Do you want me to go in with her for a bit while you’re recovering?” Chris asks.

Ian slowly lifts his head. “I can do it.”

That’s good. At least he’s found his balls again.

He gets back up and heads towards Riley’s room, wearing his green hospital gown, as we make ourselves comfortable in the waiting room. Chris sits on Ryan’s knee and he wraps his arms around her waist, leaning his chin on her shoulder; she smiles and rubs her face against his as Evan watches them, shaking his head. He turns to me and mimes vomiting all over the waiting room, and I laugh in response.

Yeah, I know. We could be twins.

He comes over and sits in the empty chair next to me, stretching his legs out in front of him. It won’t be long before they’re longer than mine.

Jesus, this kid – who’s not really a kid anymore – will be able to tear me to pieces pretty soon.

“What d’you reckon, Uncle Loser? Shall we grab a coffee? It’s four in the morning and I’m shattered – I only got home two hours ago. This baby couldn’t have chosen a better time.”

“I’m not Uncle Loser.”

“Sure you are.”

“If anyone’s a loser here, it’s Ryan.”

He lifts his head and looks at me, pretending to be annoyed.

“What’s that about losers? Because I can see three of them right here.” Jamie’s shrill voice makes us all jump. He stands there, hands on hips, with a smile that lights up his entire face. His expression tells us that he has no intention of being second-place.

“So, O’Connor, let’s just clear something up. I’m the only perfect uncle around here.”

Ian suddenly appears among us, his face even whiter than before. I jump to my feet and approach him; he looks at me, but not really. It’s like he’s looking past me, lost, distant, overcome by his own emotions.

“What…? Ian, what?” I ask, anxious.

He shakes his head and rubs his eyes.

“Talk, for fuck’s sake!” I raise my voice, attracting everyone’s attention.

“Nick…it’s…my daughter,” he says, overwhelmed. “Mine.”

I smile and let out a sigh of relief.

“I have a baby, Nick.”

I place a hand on his shoulder and squeeze it affectionately.

“I’ve never seen anything more beautiful.”

The others come over to us, waiting to hear the rest – but Ian can’t do anything but laugh and cry, almost hysterical. I almost slap him to bring him back to his senses, but he’s already been battered enough tonight by his own emotion. So I decide to leave him be – at least, until next time.

Slowly, he calms down, looking around at everyone with bright eyes, pride oozing out of every pore: he gathers up his courage and announces:

“I’m the happiest man in the world.”

And I’m pretty close to tears now, too.




One by one, we quietly file into Riley’s room. We weren’t all supposed to come in together at this time of night, but luckily we have friends in high places in this hospital – something Ryan is not at all happy about.

Martin, Evan’s dad and Chris’ ex, is warning us not to make any noise, to behave like mature adults.

Seriously? He’s saying that to us?

He clearly hasn’t spent enough time with our family yet.

“Just for five minutes, okay? Don’t make me regret this,” he threatens, with a stare that says I’m a fucking doctor and this is my hospital, so don’t make me look like a dick.

Poor Dr. Dick.

When Riley sees us, she smiles, tired but happy. “You’re all here.”

“Fuck, yeah,” Ryan says, raising his voice. Chris shoots him a glare.

At least he’ll be kicked out first. One less to deal with.

Ian sits down next to Riley and kisses her forehead. Then she turns to us, showing us the tiny little bean wrapped in a pink blanket – I’d be scared to even brush against her with my enormous, clumsy hands. Hopefully Ian’s are more delicate than mine.

“Look, Jamie: this is your family.”

“J-Jamie?” Riley’s brother asks, appearing in the doorway.

“Where the hell were you?”

“I went for a walk and got lost.”

“Lost underneath someone, I imagine…” Ryan taunts.

“Did this really seem like an appropriate time, Jamie?” I chime in, teasing him.

“Mind your own business, O’Connor. We’re talking about something important here,” He turns back to his sister. “So…Jamie?”

She smiles at him. It’s clear to everyone now who her favourite uncle will be.

Fuck him.

“But isn’t Jamie a boy’s name?” Evan asks, making me love him even more. I really need to revaluate his role in this family.

“No, it’s unisex,” Riley explains. “And we couldn’t have chosen a better name for our little girl. The name of the person who made all of this happen.”

“Fuck, are you trying to make me cry?” Jamie whinges.

“Please,” Ryan interjects. “It was bad enough when it was Ian,” he says, gesturing towards his brother.

Ian, sitting next to Riley, is inconsolable. He can’t stop crying, stroking her, looking at his baby daughter as if she were the most precious gift life could give him.

Here he is: my brother, once a hard-arse, and now a snivelling shell of a man. Ryan seems to have joined him now, too, after meeting Chris. I think I’m the only Alpha-male left in this ridiculous story. I just hope it doesn’t turn into a series – keeping up this role for much longer will be draining.

I’m not like them. I don’t pretend to be a bastard, and then melt like an ice lolly as soon as the sun hits. Jesus, no. I’m an adult. I’m mature, tough, good-looking – at least that will never go away – emotionless, a bit of a dickhead. Not even the best of therapists would be able to analyse me.

I’m Nick O’Connor. I’m the eldest, the strongest. I’m the one nothing can break down.

Yeah, right.

I look at Ian, then look at his girlfriend and his daughter; their fingers are intertwined, their smiles filled with love and hope. Life is teeming around them, giving back everything it took from them. And I feel something break inside me: a quickly-growing crack spreading across my chest. It makes no noise, no one can hear it – but, inside me, the rumble is deafening.

I rub my eyes. I can feel something niggling at me, maybe a fly or some dust – fuck, they should really keep a closer eye on the hygiene in this hospital – but nothing can stop the burning. I rub at them roughly with the sleeve of my hoodie, but it only makes it worse. The tears come gushing out anyway and I can’t do anything about it; I can’t even remember the last time this happened to me. And they’re tears of joy, because my brother has just had a baby, because I’ve become an uncle, because our family is growing. I’m so happy that a sob escapes my lips, and I can’t do anything to stifle it.

Everyone turns to me.

“Well, what do we have here?”

Riley smiles at me and passes me the baby. “Go on, Jamie. This is Uncle Nick.”

“Why does he get to go first?” Ryan whines.

“Because I’m the oldest,” I retort, gently taking this new life in my arms and suddenly feeling myself fill up with love, with gratitude. With hope.

“Hey, little Jamie,” I say, even though I know full well that she can’t understand me. But you never know – better to make things clear. “I’m the best-looking uncle, the one who will take you shopping to buy anything you want. I’ll teach you how to kick guys in the balls, and buy you beer when your mum and dad aren’t around—”

“Hey…” Ian scolds.

“But I’ll also be the one you can always count on, because look: your dad and all these other uncles here are useless.”

“Oh my God, Nick!” Ryan’s angry now.

I lightly kiss her forehead and stand there, looking at her, overjoyed. “Jamie, you’ll be the only girl in my life, I swear.”

“We all knew that.” Ryan ruins this magical moment with my niece, just as he’s ruined pretty much every moment of my life.

“Come on, come to Uncle Ryan,” he says, delicately taking her from my arms.

“You alright with her, mate?” Evan asks him.

“Fuck off! What’s your problem?” Ryan retorts.

“Guys, you really need to start watching your language. Seriously,” Riley warns.

“But she’s only just been born, she doesn’t understand yet,” Ryan responds.

“Sure, but it’ll be a long road to recovery for you guys,” Riley adds, making me laugh. She’s right. It’ll be almost impossible.

“So, little Jamie,” Ryan says to the baby. “Apart from your questionable name…”

“You’re just jealous,” Jamie cuts in.

“…you’re…you’re…” He takes a deep breath, then look at Ian. “Holy shit, Ian,” he says, relaxing.

Everyone laughs, resigned to the fact that this little girl is going to grow up surrounded by an ocean of ‘holy shits’. 

“Yeah, Ryan,” Ian nods. “Holy shit.”
