Tops Down Bottoms Up By Jay Northcote


Genre: Contemporary Romance, GLBTQ, MM

Released: August 14, 2017

Publisher: Jay Bird Press

Cover Design: Garrett Leigh @ Black Jazz Design


Will Rowan’s festival fling with sexy dancer Seth lead to something more permanent?

Rowan is stuck at a folk festival helping out a mate, and it really isn’t his scene. The yoga and singing workshops are bad enough, but morris dancing is the final straw. Bearded men with beer guts prancing around wearing bells—who wants to watch that?

All Rowan’s preconceptions are shattered when he meets Seth—a morris dancer, and the stuff Rowan’s fantasies are made of. Seth persuades Rowan to come to a dancing workshop, and Rowan’s willing to do whatever it takes to get to know Seth better. The attraction is mutual, and a lesson filled with innuendo and flirting leads to an incredible night together.

When Rowan arrives home, he’s gutted to find that Seth has given him the wrong phone number. Assuming Seth did it on purpose, Rowan resolves to forget about him. But fate—and friends—conspire to get them back together. Will they manage to stay in step this time around?

A much shorter version of this story was originally published in the Not Quite Shakespeare Anthology by Dreamspinner Press. This version has been revised and extended. Almost half of it is new content.

Sweet, but hot and sexy; I loved it!

I’d never heard of morris dancing so when I asked to review Tops Down Bottoms Up I had to look it up; isn’t YouTube wonderful? I won’t spoil it for you, check it out for yourself.

While this is a short novella it still packs a punch. Jay Northcote’s writing is so descriptive that I could see and feel all of the things the characters did. I love it when I get that feeling from a book.

This book held my attention from the beginning. The only problem was that I started it too late at night and had to put it down because my ereader fell out of my hands and woke me up. lol I immediately picked it up again in the morning to finish it.

I could totally relate to Rowan’s dismay at finding that Seth had given him a bad number and my heart hurt for him. Thank goodness Rowan and Seth have good friends and that’s all I’ll say.

I’m looking forward to reading more books by Jay Northcote.
