Virtual Blog Tour & Giveaway ~ Interborough by Santino Hassell


About Interborough

The Raymond Rodriguez from a few years ago wouldn’t recognize the guy he is today. He’s left his slacker ways far behind him and is now juggling two jobs and school. But the balancing act doesn’t allow much time for the man he loves.

David is doing his best to be supportive, but problems at work and his own insecurity leave him frustrated—in more ways than the obvious—whenever he goes to bed before Raymond gets home. The heat and affection between them is still there, but they barely have the time or energy to enjoy it. And it doesn’t help that Raymond is still hiding David from his colleagues.

The stress mounts so high that a vacation in paradise is filled with turmoil instead of harmony, and culminates on their return to the five boroughs with broken promises and heartache. They have to figure out how to stop allowing their differences to overshadow their love. It’s the only way they’ll make it to forever.


Interborough is available from Riptide Publishing. http://riptidepublishing.com/titles/interborough


About Santino Hassell

Santino was raised by a conservative family, but he was anything but traditional. He grew up to be a smart-mouthed grunge kid, then a transient twentysomething, and eventually transformed into a guy who spends his days and nights writing romance with an edge.

Santino is a dedicated gamer, a former fanfic writer, an ASoIaF mega nerd, a Grindr enthusiast, but most of all he is a writer of LGBT fiction that is heavily influenced by the gritty, urban landscape of New York City, his belief that human relationships are complex and flawed, and his own life experiences.

Connect with Santino:

Holy fucking anxiety! If I didn't love these two so much, I don't think I would have had any hope for them. I thought we'd be done with the back and forth, but I guess they had a little more to get out. 

While there was a lot of back and forth, it was legit reasons. I love how "real" their problems can be. It goes to show how inexperienced Raymond is in relationships in general and how David's past can affect the future. 

I'm SOOO happy for Zio and Michael. They really still are my favorites and will continue to be. But I really, really hope Chris gets a book, because, well...dimples N shit. 

4* I'd 5* it but my nerves are fried right now :p

Bradford (Ford) King was sure he had the rest of his life mapped out. Though he was no longer a SEAL Lieutenant, his brother was home safe and he had a job that still allowed him to satisfy his hunger for hunting bad guys. Life was simple, no distractions or complications – at age forty-six – that’s all Ford wanted. What hedidn’twant was his work partner, sniper/watchman, Dana, giving him s**t all the time.
