The final book in the One More Thing Series is almost available! The release date for One Big Decision is May 17. This is crazy because I’ve been writing one book or another in this series for the entire time I’ve been a published author.
Here’s a book description and a scene from the novel. In the scene, Luke is asking Ryan to prom.
In the conclusion of the One More Thing Series, Ryan and Luke face prom, college decisions, and what happens to their relationship when high school ends.
Despite the fierce competition over who can pull off the best prom proposal, Ryan and Luke are ridiculously in love high school sweethearts. But high school is drawing to a close, and the boyfriends have very different ideas for college.
While the guys want to stay together, they know young love doesn’t always last. Especially when one of them is thinking more about them than him, and the other isn’t being entirely forthcoming about his future goals. Will their love be enough to ensure a happy ending, or will they go their separate ways for good?
“At least offer to split the therapy bill with me as a gesture of goodwill,” Ryan said while exiting his house, too busy arguing with his father to notice me.
“You think you need therapy?” Mr. Miller spoke while shutting the door behind him. “You left me with parenting PTSD.”
“You called me fat!”
“I only suggested a walk,” Mr. Miller tiredly corrected.
“Who goes on freaking father-son walks?” Ryan complained merrily in fine form.
They began talking over each other.
“We don’t both have to—”
“Which brings us back to you thinking I should lose some weight.”
“If you could be patient for five seconds—”
“Oh, are we making wishes to the never-gonna-happen-fairy because—”
“Really? My wish already came true.”
“So not fair! What did you wish for?”
“For him to put me out of my misery.” Mr. Miller nodded his head, indicating me. To me, he said, “You owe me so badly.”
“Luke!” Ryan exclaimed. “And… a giant anthill.”
My promposal did resemble a giant anthill. The brown mass nearly reached my knees, a volcano surrounded by a small island and ocean landscape. I put in the ingredient to make it blow. The ‘lava’ bubbled and foamed with a small rush of sound as it began pouring from the top and erupting over the island and spilling out into the ocean.
“Is that… root beer?” Yep. Ryan’s favorite drink. A huge smile burst over his face.
Lava funneled from the volcano to the carefully cut spaces below to spell out ‘prom.’ More statement than question.
“Prom?” I asked. There, there was the question.
“Yes, yes, a thousand times yes!”
“Once is fine.”
He leapt into my arms, giving me just enough time to plant my feet and ensure we stayed upright instead of toppling into the display below. The first brush of his lips landed a few inches left of my mouth, though it worked as he began peppering kisses all over my face, too giddy for finesse or aim.
Yeah, this went well.
