Awkward and Thoroughly Kissable

Coming Soon: Cold Pressed.

Cold Pressed. Seacroft novel 2. Contemporary MM romance from author Allison Temple.

So I know the dust is barely settled on Top Shelf, but are you ready for more Seacroft? There’s a cover reveal (and this might be my favourite cover for the whole series) coming next week, but maybe you’d like a blurb?

Cold Pressed will be out in July!


No strings attached is all Oliver can offer. He's hiding a broken heart that holds him back from diving into a new relationship, but he'll go on a blind date to make his family happy. Just one date, though; he doesn't have time for love to derail his plans.

Divorced and demoted to the night shift, Nick has his own problems. He's got an ex-wife who needs him and a kid with one foot in juvie. The last thing Nick needs is to butt heads—or other body parts—with a tempting hipster who wears a sad smile on their blind date. 

Their chemistry can’t be denied, though, in an argument or in bed. No strings sex is uncomplicated and that's what Nick and Oliver need. But getting into bed together is one thing. Staying out of each other’s hearts soon becomes so much more complicated than either one imagined.

Cold Pressed is an 80k contemporary MM romance. It features a smouldering bisexual single dad, a broken-hearted hipster with a thing for beet juice, and a friends-with-benefits arrangement that blooms into the HEA you've been looking for.
