This week I have another snippet from my co written New Adult book Upstaged Opening Act.

Wannabe singer and band front man Erik Von Nordgren hates snarky Brit Asher Berkley with a passion. From the moment he turns up at practice with his twin sister Daisy, who is one of the band the two have hated each other.

Through a series of ‘tit for tat’ incidents they annoy, frustrate and exasperated each other. The die hard goth with purple eyes and the hard core rocker with dreams of the big time have nothing in common and no need to cross paths. Except to wind each other up.

Until the day that Erik throws Asher in the school pool, when everything begins to change. Erik is so far in closet he’s in Narnia and Asher has a dark past and trust issues that stand in the way of any relationship, let alone one with the brash American who hurts him every time they try to get together.

A relationship doomed from the start, or so you’d think.


Erik’s being a bit of an asshole, so I thought I’d give you a quick idea of why he is as he is. Of course, part of the reason is that he really is a big, lumbering meathead *wink, Sorry Steph*

Holy moly, no way could he admit any of that. Not right now, that’s for sure. Certainly not in front of his mother and especially not to his father. He knew what would happen. That story of Cousin Dagny would be dredged up, the guy who was gay and hanged himself because of rejection. The big horrible family secret that no one ever mentioned. He was doomed all the way around.
