An Alisa Review: On The Third Kiss by George Loveland

Standard

Rating:  4 stars out of 5

Sebastian Bennett is really looking forward to his Christmas holiday with boyfriend Elliot Bolton in the Gran Canarian sun. The only thing left is for him to sing one last song at the pub as his Drag Queen alter-ego, Donna Tracey. After the wig, make-up and dress come off, he rushes home to pack, only to find he and his chihuahua, Buster, have been deserted by Elliot, who’s taken someone else to Gran Canaria. Devastated, Sebastian turns to his friend and the pub’s manager,  Javier Reyes-Martinez, who helps him pick up the pieces.

Javier seems determined to bring fun and laughter back into Sebastian’s life during this holiday season, and Sebastian is both grateful and enchanted. After a family Christmas and a word of advice from his great-uncle, Sebastian starts to look at Javier in a different light. Is Javier as fond of Sebastian as he appears, or is Sebastian being misled by his own need? If he’s reading the signs
right—and if he’s ready to move on from his previous heartbreak—could he and Javier be much more than friends?

This was a sweet story.  Sebastian has to be one of the most oblivious people ever and doesn’t see much until after the fact.  At least he
has lots of people who care about him that are now ready to make him open his eyes.

Javier is so adorable, I felt bad that he so obviously cared for Sebastian and everyone but he can see it.  Sebastian needs someone to
support him and Javier seems to be just the man to do it.  I could see Sebastian’s pain at Elliot’s betrayal and his helplessness to fix
everything.  It was easy to read between the lines for Javier’s feelings that even though Sebastian seemed unable to process his
actions.  I loved the drag queens and I thought Sebastian’s nephew was so cute and I love the support they all gave his desire to follow in  Sebastian’s footsteps.

The cover art by Meredith Russell is great and gives a nice visual of the characters and a shadow of Donna.

Author Bio


George was about eighteen when he told his friend that he was going to be a writer. It took him another eighteen years before he finally did anything about it and wrote his first short story. A typical Englishman, he drinks buckets of tea with milk—but no sugar, because he is sweet enough. His Nan told him so.

George lives just outside of London, but close enough to enjoy Soho and the West End, where you will find him in a bar with a pint, in a club dancing into the early hours of the morning, or enjoying a musical in the theater; but more than likely he will be in a coffee shop reading a book or writing a new story. Currently single, but taking applications for future husband position, George enjoys crafting romantic stories in which he hopes that one day, life will imitate art.
