Finley Embraces Heart And Home
By Anyta Sunday
Love, Austen (Book 4)
Until he meets his STEP-BROTHER.For years it’s been just Finley and Mum. Now she’s getting married, and they’re moving into a flash mansion and his step-dad is lording it over him. He’s clearly a homophobe, and doesn’t want him rubbing off (so to speak) on his son.
Like that would ever happen. No way he’d ever go for someone who shares his DNA.
Even if Ethan and his dad don’t look anything alike.
Even if Ethan and his dad don’t act anything alike.
Even if . . .
This can’t happen. They’re whānau now, family, there are boundaries.
Secret. Forbidden. Irresistible.
A reimagining of Jane Austen’s Mansfield Park.
― Jane Austen, Mansfield Park***
Heart-throbbing slow burn, a bit of pretty prose, Ethan is his step-brother, Finley wasn’t supposed to see him naked, step-dad is a homophobe, Finley has naughty thoughts, Austen might roll over in her grave, secrets and confessions under sparkly stars, mutual pining, the world is unfair, pining-pining-and-more-pining, Finley turns naughty thoughts to actions, so what there are rules?, maybe they shouldn’t have done that, jealousy is an ugly green beast, Austen might like this now, forgetting is impossible, more impossible is choosing between heart and home.
I head straight for my room and Ethan trails behind me, stopping at the doorway.
Everything is clean and neat and the large bed is grey, grey, and more shades of grey.
I dive onto it like it’s the most welcoming bit of furniture in the house. It is the most welcoming. It’s as depressed-looking as I feel. We understand each other.
Rolling onto my back, I sniff. Ethan’s still there, watching.
He rocks on his heels like he’s about to go, then shrugs and strides into the room. The comforter dips under him as he perches next to me.
“What for?” I drape an arm over my eyes so I don’t have to look at all that undeserved kindness in his expression.
“You have to give up everything, while I gain everything.”
“Gain?” I splutter. “What are you gaining?”
The mattress shifts slightly. “It’s a really big house, and Dad travels quite a bit . . .”
Was he saying . . .
I rethink all the weekends Tom stayed in Cubworthy. Ethan might have got day trips with Mum, but the rest of the time he’d been alone in a mansion.
I drop the arm from my face. That slightly square jaw is set tight and he’s frowning into space.
He shakes it off and looks down at me. “Did you leave a lot of friends behind?”
I shove myself into a sitting position and cock my head. Will he still think he’s gaining something when I tell him?
He waits for my answer, taking off his cap and sliding his fingers through his hair before resettling it.
“It’s not about how many I left behind. It’s about how much they meant to me.”
He nods. “Sure.”
“I’ll miss my boyfriend most.” My ex-boyfriend, now.
I wait for a reaction, and I’m satisfied there is one. His body shifts as if on the brink of recoiling. There. He’s changing his mind about having company.
The bed moves again and I think Ethan is getting up, but he’s still there in the corner of my eye. His cheeks are flushed.
I look directly at him and raise a brow.
He lurches to his feet and hoofs out of my room.
