"Platonic takes readers a passionate journey of self awareness and discovery."
- Carly’s Book Reviews
There’s been a heatwave in England of late which is both excellent and unexpected. On Friday afternoon I took advantage of flexi-time, left the office early and settled myself in my back garden with cold beer and Bleeding Heart in hand. Best Friday in a long time.
I’m familiar with the story that Bleeding Heart started out as, and I’m a huge fan of Melissa Graves’ work as MissBeizy so I knew before starting that this was going to be a thing I liked. I wasn’t expecting to like it so much *more* than the original. I half expected to read the book with Kurt and Blaine in my head but I really didn’t: Kyle and Brian are different people indeed and they along with the other characters in this book, most notably for me Clara and Jeffrey are fully fleshed out and real. I totally forgot that I was reading a piece I was vaguely familiar with; within a chapter I was hooked on this new story - this isn’t just a case of find-and-replace with names guys, this is a new (stronger) piece. The writing is well-paced and the narrative strong; the characterisation is excellent, the back stories are well thought and fully fleshed, the whole world this book is based in is fully realised enough to feel read and the sex? The sex is hot.
All in all this is a really really good read. Perfect actually, for a hot hot day with an ice cold beer. I cannot WAIT for the next installment.
The fact that Bleeding Heart by Melissa Graves isn’t on Kobo yet makes me sad :(
We’ve put a query in to our distributor and will update as soon as we get an answer to this mystery…
Like me, are you in the UK and struggling to find online retailers—other than Amazon—stocking Interlude Press titles?
I just found this super handy site that already has both of the released IP titles listed and searches the web for all UK online retailers selling the books.
You may pay a couple of pounds more with some retailers than you would at Amazon, sure, but this means that not only are you showing your support for Interlude Press and the authors whose blood, sweat, and tears have gone into these novels… You’re also supporting retailers other than Amazon. Win win!
NOW AVAILABLE WORLDWIDE FROM INTERLUDE PRESS

"Melissa Graves quickly made me fall in love with her uniquely crafted paranormal world."
Hmmm, someone’s co-opted my new reading material!
I’m very much looking forward to reading them when she’s done with them.
