Family calls for help and I run to the rescue like I always do, to work cheerfully and politely, for as long as it takes.
And I wind up in a jam.
Mocked by flowers and non-existent fiends, I do what comes natural, perfectly normal for a guy who doesn't want to hang in a retail shop or funeral home—I freak out and hide.
Then—she—joins me in my dark and cramped isolation, and I do something that goes beyond natural, surpasses supernatural and becomes, for me, a cosmic phenomenon. Struck not by lightning, but lust. A once in a blue moon, great-balls-on-fire infatuation.
To get to the point—without knowing who the girl is, what she looks like, or anything about her—I fall for her.
My name is Joel. This romance is the story of my death and my life. Trust me, after you read you’ll understand.
In Lieu of Flowers is a sweet romance, new adult, for general audience.
