BioI am a bestselling author of contemporary MM romance. I write a variety of themes: sweet and fluffy to high angst to taboo, but there is a huge nod in the direction of friendships being integral to each character's experience. I write books that are emotionally realistic, even if liberties are taken with other aspects of my stories.
Reading and writing have always been a part of my life, although my debut book wasn't published until July 2019, when I was 36 years old. My experience has come from reading thousands of books over the years and being a perfectionist when it comes to trying to make things right. I live in the centre of the UK with my two children, who make life worth living, keep me (in)sane and make me laugh. I love Zumba, yoga and walking, all things that can be done alone as I am very introverted.
This was my first taste of Elouise East's writing and it won't be my last. With the rich setting of British pantomime, the support the characters give each other, and the sweet way their relationship develops, this story has everything to warm your heart on a cold night.
Age difference, artists, and a older character discovering his bisexuality sounded amazing to me, and Elouise didn't disappoint. What a heartwarming story. Micah and Declan have their faults, but they're perfect for each other and you can't help but root for them from the start. <br /> The presence of characters from other books is perfect for readers who already know and love Elouise, as well as a great way to discover her universe if she's a new to you author.
A peep into the world of British pantomime, which I love, and the hardworking professional dancers who perform in it, creating a theatrical backdrop to Micah and Dec’s blossoming relationship. Dec’s growing – and unexpected! - attraction to Micah is well handled, and Micah’s support is heartwarming.
While Declan was discovering himself, Micah became the understanding and receptive force that stood by him every step of the way. A moving story about the love two men found when they weren’t even looking for it.
Declan’s journey on a bisexual awakening at 45 reminds us that we’re never too old to learn something new about ourselves. Sweet, serious Micah felt like the breath of fresh air Declan needed. I also enjoyed the depictions of theater, family, and friends. A sweet read!
