Beck (Bar 28) Cover

Bar 28, Book 4

Finally, he’s found his perfect man. Will he be able to keep him?

Beck Thompson is out and proud. He has a job he loves and friends he considers his family. Okay, he doesn’t have a boyfriend, but chances are slim he’ll find the man who’ll accept all of him, his past and his tattoos. He’s happy. Sort of.

Until he sees the perfect man…with the same woman hanging on his arm every night. Damn.

Munro Sylvester has put every aspect of his life on hold to make his business a success. And he’s done it. But he’s never been true to himself.

One look at the gorgeous, colourful man changes everything. He knows he has to make the first move, but he may risk losing everything he’s worked so hard for.

Can Beck trust his heart that Munro is the one for him? Is Munro brave enough to come out and fight for their happily ever after?

Beck has a tattooed bartender who has never had any luck with love, a hard-working gym owner who’s never said “I’m gay” out loud, instant attraction, and well-meaning, meddling friends.

It is the fourth book in the BAR 28 series, a MM contemporary series. Each book can be read as a stand-alone, but you’ll enjoy them best by reading them in order. This series is based in the UK.

“Beck, wait up!” The voice from the office stopped me in my tracks in the corridor. I closed my eyes and calmed myself, then turned back and stepped inside. Jonas, my boss—and my ex-lover—looked me over and frowned. “Are you okay? You’ve seemed distracted lately.” Damn him for knowing me so well.

“Yeah, I’m good. I’ve had a lot on my mind lately, but it’s all sorted now.” Please don’t ask. Please don’t ask.

“Anything I can help with?” He was such a genuine guy, a great man. If only it could’ve worked out for us. He was a protector, a carer, and I didn’t need one of those. I wanted an equal.

“No, like I said, it’s all sorted. I’m good. I promise.” I plastered my brightest smile on my face and turned away, conscious of his eyes still on me.

“You know where I am if you need anything, Beck.” The kindness in his voice made my heart hurt, and I had to blink hard a couple of times to fight back the sting of tears.

“I know. Thank you, Jonas.” I walked to the breakroom, which was empty. I was always early, a habit I’d had my whole life, thanks to my parents. They’d always prided themselves on the fact that they were never late. It was a shame they didn’t pride themselves on loving their son.

It was going to be a busy night, which was exactly what I needed. A night to take my mind off the total fuck-up my life was right now. Not my love life. I hadn’t got that. No, it was my sex life that was fucked up. I must have a sign on my forehead that said ‘SUCKER’ flashing in pink neon lights. I was a sucker for a sad smile and a sob story,

which was why I ended up alone after my so-called date decided to call his ex and, with a gabbled apology, rushed off back to him. I’d spent all damn night trying to cheer him up so that I could get him back to my place, not for him to friend-zone me before he left.

The others were arriving as well. Max had Gus tucked under his arm, and Sawyer sported a hickey or two, courtesy of Devon. Leo was already working and would be leaving after his shift ended to go home to Bruno. Happy couples everywhere.

Fuck. My. Life.

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
