Why does he want to ruin a perfectly good friendship by becoming boyfriends? Why would someone from Paul’s background have any interest in ordinary boy-next-door Tom?
Tom is quiet and awkward, especially after his ex told him he was nothing. Besides, Tom’s too nerdy, too organised, too shy to ask anyone out ever again.
Except maybe Paul.
When Paul talks to him, Tom feels fabulous, he feels brave. When Paul looks after him, Tom thinks maybe he’s not nothing. He wants to go wherever Paul, with his rich parents and monthly allowance, leads—to places Tom’s working-class background hasn’t allowed him before.
But there’s one problem. Paul’s love of the party drug ecstasy starts with him taking it sometimes, moves onto often, then to usually, until soon it’s always. Tom’s unsure if Paul’s a bad influence on him, or he’s a bad influence on Paul.
With a nerd, friends to lovers, clash of backgrounds, partying, dancing and lots of recreational drug use, Love On The Dancefloor is a stand-alone gay romance that asks: can you really make yourself stop loving someone?
