It all started when Cole met Perry in a bar. Over three years they had some exciting adventures, and misadventures. The six stories included in this book are all about their journey from bar to wedding.
Another cancellation of plans by his boyfriend forces Cole out to the neighborhood bar. Not long after arriving he meets Perry. Even as exciting as Perry is, he’s unsure how the night will end.
Cole and Perry are struggling to make time for each other and constantly at each other’s throats. A fight to the death will decide who is right or wrong in their arguments. But Cole really doesn’t want to shoot Perry.
Deciding they want to spice up things in the bedroom, Perry wants to have a one-time threesome. Cole’s nervous and doesn’t want to ask any of their friends to join them. Perry finds the perfect solution.
After two and a half years together, Cole and Perry want to buy a house. Once they find the perfect house, they get to spend their first morning together in their new space. Perry will have to help Cole decide which room is his favorite.
Both Cole and Perry are exhausted. Taking care of a three month old is hard when she’s up all night and is always hungry. If only they could find where they put the bottle warmer.
Cole is ready to make his commitment to Perry life-long. After careful planning, they created the perfect event. What could possibly go wrong? If only Cole didn’t ask the same question.

“Cole. I have a surprise for you. I want you to close your eyes and keep them closed until I tell you to open them.”
Cole looked up from his magazine at the doorway Perry’s voice drifted in from. He put the magazine on his nightstand and closed his eyes.
“They’re closed,” he called out. He wasn’t sure where Perry was in their apartment, but he sounded close.
Rustling and a strange squeaking noise reached his ears. Cole furrowed his brows trying to figure out what Perry was up to and what he was hearing.
“Okay. Go ahead and open your eyes.”
Cole popped his eyes open. He closed them and then re-opened them again. Nope, he still was seeing what was in front of him.
“Perry. Why is there–?”
Perry cut him off before Cole could finish his thought.
“So, we had talked about fantasies and things like that. I told you this was mine. So I’d like to introduce you to Freddy. Freddy, I’d like to introduce you to my boyfriend, Cole.”
Cole smiled at how nervous Perry was. His boyfriend was adorable trying to be brave with his ideas.
“Nice to meet you, um, Freddy. Perry, where did you meet Freddy?”
Perry had a small smile on his face that showed Cole he appreciated he was alright with what was happening.
“Online. I found Freddy on some website. Can’t remember the name now.”
Cole was stunned. His boyfriend didn’t go to those types of websites for any reason. Just meant Perry wanted to have the threesome and was willing to do it without asking one of their friends. Cole was so happy Perry had found a way to have his fantasy.

INTERVIEW WITH AMANDA C STONE
VP: What show from your childhood would you love to bring back?
ACS: Most of the shows are available for me to watch online, and my little one watches many of them. This past Halloween she wanted to be She-Ra. Couldn’t go to the Halloween store and buy THAT costume.
But the one show that I would love to come back is Thundercats. The original, not the remake. I watched that show all the time. If they brought it back, or even just had it available to watch online, I’d be one happy girl.
VP: If someone gave you a plane ticket to anywhere in the world, where would you go?
That’s tough because my initial response is “Everywhere”. One of the things on my bucket list is to travel to every single country and spend some time there. And yes, I truly mean EVERY country. Top on my list would be some places in Asia. Japan, Thailand, Singapore. One of those. But only if my magic plane ticket is in the seats that have actual space to enjoy the flight.
VP: Which of the four seasons suits your personality?
Fits my personality? Um, I’d say probably summer. Warm, and sunny.
VP: Describe your favorite reading space?
I love reading in bed all curled up under the covers. It’s all comfy cozy. Hmm, might just have to go do that.
VP: How did you come up with the title of your book?
Cole and Perry was written in little spurts. I didn’t really see the overall picture until I was almost done with the whole thing. I originally thought to title it The Misadventures of Cole and Perry. It stayed that way through two of the short stories. It never really sat right with me since the things that happen to Cole and Perry weren’t really bad. Just different. So I switched it to The Adventures of Cole and Perry. Once I made the switch, it stuck.
