Born For Leaving by Mia Kerick writing as Jude Munro

A big welcome to Mia Kerick/Jude Munro as part of her tour with Silver Dagger Book Tours for Born For Leaving.

Born For Leaving

New England State of Mind Book 1
by Mia Kerick writing as Jade Munro
Genre: M/M Contemporary Romance
When they say be careful what you wish for, do you pay attention?
Neither did Oliver Tunstead.
Oliver wishes for nothing more than to get his mind off his crappy bartending job, pile of debt big enough to swallow him whole, and playboy ex-boyfriend/boss who refuses to back off. Too bad distractions, like the hot little convertible he has his eye on, cost megabucks. And Oliver is flat broke. Renting the spare bedroom in his rundown beachfront cottage is his only option to pick up the cash he needs—a risky proposition, as Oliver is the polar opposite of a people-person. When he responds to a bizarre ad in the Waterfront Gazette seeking summer housing, he gets more than he bargained for. But Oliver can cope… After all, how much harm can a single quirky tenant do to his tightly guarded life in three short months?
Where Oliver is a loner by design, urban cowboy Bodie is a loner by necessity. A family dispute long ago dropkicked him onto the path of a lifelong wanderer. This changes when Bodie moves into the tiny beachfront cottage and starts working the door at Oliver’s bar.
Despite Oliver and Bodie’s nearly paralyzing instinct to avoid commitment, they fall into a wary romance. And to their surprise, life as a couple is sweetly satisfying; that is, until their jealous boss devises a cruel plan to destroy the tentative bond they’ve built. True to form, Bodie hits the road, leaving Oliver to lick his wounds alone.
Can these wounded souls defy their urge to flee and fight for love?

Jude Munro is merging with the writer’s original pen name, Mia Kerick.

Jude Munro, very briefly Mia Kerick’s adult gay romance pen
name, writes fictional characters in her adult gay romance novels who
are drawn to the beach. They’ve sunbathed on the sands of many
alluring East Coast beaches, along with the fantastical beaches in
Jude’s books. They’ll answer questions like “Who do you think
you are, the sun god?” (which they often resemble)ifthey can hear
you over “Boys of Summer” cranking on their headphones. To
most of Jude’s men, no shoes and no shirt is reallynot a
problem. But even on the sunniest of beach days, the guys in Jude’s
books dohave problems… as in, serious relationship issues.
Many of which seem insurmountable. And each character must earn his
day at the beach. (Yes, there is always a HEA).

As Mia Kerick, this author’s books have been featured in Kirkus
Reviews magazine. They won a 2019 IPPY GOLD award, a 2018 YA GOLD
MOONBEAM, a YA Readers’ Favorite Award, several first place Rainbow
Awards, a Reader Views’ Book by Book Publicity Literary Award, the
Jack Eadon Award for Best Book in Contemporary Drama, a YA Indie Fab
Award, a First Place Royal Dragonfly Award, a First Place Story
Monsters Purple Dragonfly Award, and a YA category finalist for the
Eric Hoffer award, and more.

About Anne Barwell

Anne Barwell lives in Wellington, New Zealand. She shares her home with a cat with “tortitude” who is convinced that the house is run to suit her; this is an ongoing “discussion,” and to date, it appears as though Kaylee may be winning. In 2008, Anne completed her conjoint BA in English Literature and Music/Bachelor of Teaching. She has worked as a music teacher, a primary school teacher, and now works in a library. She is a member of the Upper Hutt Science Fiction Club and plays violin for Hutt Valley Orchestra. She is an avid reader across a wide range of genres and a watcher of far too many TV series and movies, although it can be argued that there is no such thing as “too many.” These, of course, are best enjoyed with a decent cup of tea and further the continuing argument that the concept of “spare time” is really just a myth. She also hosts and reviews for other authors, and writes monthly blog posts for Love Bytes. She is the co-founder of the New Zealand Rainbow Romance writers, and a member of RWNZ. Anne’s books have received honorable mentions five times, reached the finals four times—one of which was for best gay book—and been a runner up in the Rainbow Awards. She has also been nominated twice in the Goodreads M/M Romance Reader’s Choice Awards—once for Best Fantasy and once for Best Historical. Anne can be found at
