Famous Last

   (8 reviews)

Late October, and Spencer K Wyrrell—Squirrel—sits hidden behind an evergreen bush, freezing his arse off in the rooftop garden of his boss' London penthouse flat. Taking a break, he is waiting with an ice bucket and a bottle of Dom for the arrival of his colleague, Bev.   But when the balcony door slides open, the person who steps out is the smoking hot celebrity, Marshall J Highlander. Squirrel overhears Highlander’s call. A newspaper is threatening to publish nude photographs of him and his ex-boyfriend from a holiday in France.

And on that night, an unexpected friendship begins to blossom during a time of Christmas lockdown.

This story is set in contemporary Britain during the pandemic. As such, references are made to UK government regulations and guidelines, although some of the timelines may vary for artistic purposes. This story is my usual flavour of gay MM romance and is not a political statement in any way, simply an observation of a budding romance during extraordinary times.

From beginning to the end this story had me hooked.

Thank you @Wesley8890, for those kind words. I’ve really enjoyed creating the story around a romance during the coronavirus pandemic and really appreciate you staying the course.

Good read with interesting and realistic characters, set in a natural environment that was easy to relate to. Well written with good plot development and nice ending. Thank you for writing this contemporary story.

Response from the author:

Thank you @Sunshine,

Very much appreciate you taking the time to leave a review. I’m hoping to begin a new story here in June or July, if you’re interested.

So refreshing to  have a contemporary setting but it has a drawback, an epilogue is nearly out of the question, which is a shame. I was wanting a proposal out of Marshall, a wedding, the birth of a niece. 

Well written, nicely developed plot. Thank you.

Response from the author:

Thank you so much @LD Stratton,

Getting a review means so much, so I want to thank you for taking your time to do this and your kind words.

I know what you mean about the epilogue, but then if I gave you all to that there would be no sequel, would there? I don't usually provide sequels, but I do like these characters and I think there's a lot more mileage in their relationship, don't you? 

Again, thanks so much.

A wonderful story even in these COVID times, this story of an underdog who prevails as a gracious and deserving recipient of love and recognition is sure to brighten any day.  From the first chapter to the end, it keeps the reader engaged. 

Response from the author:

Thank you @pvtguy,

High praise, indeed, and many thanks to you for staying the course.

More to come soon.

This is the perfect romance story set around the pandemic in Britain.

We meet Spencer aka. Squirrel and Marshall Highlander. What follows is a fantastic romance story that is full of many twists and turns.

Another fantastic story from Brian that is well worth a read.

Response from the author:

Thank you @chris191070, it’s always fun having you along for the ride with your often witty comments. I really appreciate your lovely words of encouragement.

I love this story as I do all of Lomax61’s stories. The MCs and the premise are interesting, even quirky in a down-to-earth way. The writing makes me want to know more.  Although I must say, I’m not a fan of storylines with a celebrity MC.  I think celebrityhood takes up too much of the storytelling landscape.   However, the way this is tale is written, it add favor to the basic story of boy meets boy. A damn good yarn.

Response from the author:

Hey @CritterSmith, thanks for the lovely review. Know what you mean about celebrities in fiction, but I hope Marshall comes across as more down to earth. Thanks for reading and leaving this review. Means a lot to us writers.

Read this story a while ago on ancient iPad which doesn’t allow reviews.  Now I can make amends!!! This is such a good read.  The characters have depth and are balanced.  The flat in S London/ Northern Line etc are depicted beautifully despite their physical ugliness.  
a lovely Covid era fairytale but with great feeling.   Brian is a really good writer and this is one to enjoy ☺️
