Blog Tour: Braeton & Drew by A.D. Ellis

Real-life romance to keep you coming back for more

Braeton Reed left his small-minded hometown and disapproving family long ago and never looked back.

Andrew Hines has nothing against a solid, loving relationship; he just isn’t sure he’ll ever find one.

Braeton has been told he’s a bit of a pa. Andrew has heard he’s not flashy enough. Can their differences pull them together? Or will these polar opposites allow society to dictate who they are and who they love?

** This is a male/male romance meant for ages 18+ due to adult language and adult situations.**

“You look happy,” Jodie smirked at me as I readied my tools for the day’s appointments.

“I’m gay,” I deadpanned.

“Ha ha, you know what I mean. You left here the other day with Andrew and now you’re smiling and looking almost giddy.” She cocked her head, waiting on me to spill.

“We had a good time. Ate a quick dinner, just coffee and deli, but it was nice. Probably should have been awkward, but it wasn’t. The man is positively missing the shopping gene, he almost had a meltdown when faced with jean options. But, we got him all decked out and refashioned. I think his boss will be pleased.” I didn’t give more information than necessary.

“And?” she prompted.

“And what?” I shrugged as if I wasn’t sure what she meant.

“Braeton Reed, I haven’t seen you so bouncy since you were seeing Bryan. Give me the details! Did he kiss you? Are you going to see him again?” Her impatience was almost comical.

“It wasn’t a date. I helped him with his hair and clothing.”

“So there was no spark? I really thought it seemed like you two had a little flirtation going on when you were here. He’s hot, right? And seemed like a nice guy.” She huffed as she paused, “Please don’t tell me this has something to do with you still being hung up on Bryan. Because, babe, let me tell you, as great as you thought that guy was, he’s head over heels in love with Jase and vice versa. I don’t think you have much chance there.”

Rolling my eyes, I shook my head, “I’m not still hung up on Bryan. He’s a great guy, but I never would have stood in the way of what he and Jase have. I’m glad I still have them as friends.”

“So? What was the problem? Andrew Hines seems like a catch. Attractive, nice, easy to talk to, successful…,” she trailed off.

“Fine. You’re too nosey for your own good, you know that? There was definitely an attraction, a spark. The dressing room could have turned into something quite interesting. But, he’s skittish. Not exactly closeted, but definitely not as…well, he’s not like me. I can’t see him dancing at a gay club or spending all day shopping or sipping mimosas with me and my friends while we chat.”

She watched me for a moment. Like she thought I was going to say more or laugh. When I didn’t go on, she got this look on her face.

“You mean to tell me, after all the shit you’ve been through with your family and some so-called friends and complete strangers telling you to take it down a few notches, to tone it down, to reel it in—after all of that?—you’re going to stand here and turn your nose up at someone because he’s—what?—not gay enough for you?” Furrowed brows framed her incredulous face.

My heart sank to my knees. “That’s not what I meant. I know how much it sucks to be labeled one way or another. I just don’t know if I’m his type, if he’d be comfortable being out in public with me. And I’m damn sure not going to change who I am for anyone.” I gestured up and down my body in a Vanna White fashion, “This is me. Take it or leave it, but don’t ask me to be someone else. That’s what was great about Bryan, he never flinched at me being me.”

Meet A.D. Ellis

A.D. Ellis spends the majority of her days loving and wrangling two school-aged children and a husband before heading to the inner city of Indiana to teach a challenging group of alternative education students in grades third through sixth. Most days she hits the gym after school in hopes of running and lifting away the stress and headaches of the day before picking up her children and squeezing a whole day’s worth of loving and living into the too-short hours before bed. It’s no wonder Ms. Ellis lives for the slower, easier days she gets to enjoy on breaks from school.

Growing up in a small farming town in southern Indiana, A.D. is grateful to her mother for passing along the love of reading. With her nose constantly stuck in a book, Ms. Ellis became accustomed to friends and acquaintances snickering and shaking their heads at her love of reading.

A.D. never dreamed of being anything but a teacher, although there are certain times of the year when she laments her career choice. Ms. Ellis had a story idea floating in her head for about a year. After persistent prodding from a friend, A.D. put pen to paper and began writing her first story in October 2013. From that moment on, she was hooked. Taking the people and stories from her head and sharing them with readers is a scary, exhausting, rewarding, and fulfilling experience which A.D. plans to continue until there are no more stories banging around in her mind.

A.D. Ellis’ work can be found on both iBooks and Amazon. Please contact her on Facebook, Twitter, or her website.
