A Novel in The Tav series
Davo’s a pretty average guy. He has a decent job, owns his own home, and spends his weekends at the pub. He fully accepts that he’s gay, but doesn’t want to be one of those gays who are girly. He likes football and other masculine pursuits, and firmly avoids anything that could be seen as femme—including relationships that last beyond fifteen minutes.
Then Davo’s friend and gay idol not only gets a boyfriend, but also adopts a baby girl. Davo is seriously spooked and scuttles down to the pub. That’s where he meets Lee, cute from her cherry-red hair to her pretty little dress and pointy red shoes. Davo is charmed—but how is that possible? He’s gay. Isn’t he? Then Lee tells him he’s actually a guy—he just likes to wear women’s dresses occasionally. Thoroughly confused about an attraction that’s out of character for him, Davo begins the long journey to where he can accept himself without caring what everyone else thinks.

The wonderful thing for me is that I get to spend more time with Patrick, Jake a...
There really are a lot of wonderful reviews out there about this book so I'm probably going to keep this short. My friend, Jewel wrote a lovely review (posted on GR) and as she said you really don't need to read 'The Blinding Light' first (it's book #1 in this series) and apparently I decided to pro...
This can be read as a stand-alone.Loved loved loved this book.Dave came out when he was fifteen. But due to some bad experiences in his past he has this motto.I may like dick, but I’m not a pussy.So he shuns everything pink and he certainly doesn’t want to be associated with femme guys. He is Davo, ...
Read this with a certain Glitterpirate on the rec of a certain Ed.Well, this was basically a jolly nice read. I would even go so far as to say delightful.I've heard there are some concerns about this book femme-shaming and reinforcing toxic ideas about gender and queerness. My feeling is it ain't: w...
