Guest Post: Anyta Sunday's Romance Story Wishlist + Giveaway!

Today Anyta Sunday is back with another guest post to celebrate her latest M/M release, Gemini Keeps Capricorn!

Anyta Sunday's Romance Story Wishlist

Christmas time, wishing time! And today, I want to wish me some stories I can’t get enough of! If you know of some that fit the bill (or are writing one), leave a comment below, I’d love to check them out!

Story Santa, if you’re reading this, please bring me stories that are full of romantic and sexual tension and grip me all the way to the last page!

For my first wish, I’d like to read an epic enemies to lovers romance playing out in an academic setting. Rival PhD students competing for that one dream job, one privileged character, and one who has had to scrabble their way to the top. Nerdiness is a must. Smart, sly conversation, too, that drips with subtext. I’d love to read a story with these two main characters and watch as they slowly—oh so slowly—and surely fall for each other.

My second wish is a friends to lovers, secret identity romance. I can never get enough of a good Boy Next Door story—even better when the main character doesn’t realize it’s his good friend that he’s falling in love with. Perhaps part of their relationship happens online? The story should be sweet and charming, very light on the angst, and not feature on page sex until the last quarter of the book. Let the characters work for it and fall in love bit by bit. If it’s also snarky and fast-paced, I’m sold!

Third and last I wish for an opposites attract romance, where the two, on paper, really shouldn’t work out. Yet somehow, they really work. Give me a hot Bert and Ernie romance. And give me  a twist—like, they are superheroes or something. Quirky. Fun. Did I mention it has to be slow burn?

I hope I was nice enough for Santa to bring me some of these stories! Wishing you very Happy Holidays, and lots of great reading!

Gemini Keeps Capricorn by Anyta Sunday
Publisher: Anyta Sunday (December 18th, 2017)
Series: Signs of Love, 3
Genre: M/M Romance

Sometimes, one stubborn Capricorn is all it takes… to drive Wesley Hidaka to crazy, flirtatious lengths.

Wesley loves annoying his RA, Lloyd Reynolds. He just can’t help it. Lloyd is focused, decisive, grounded. He has this amusing ability to follow rules.
Of course Wesley wants Lloyd to break one… or three hundred.

Sometimes, one smirking Gemini is all it takes… to have Lloyd laying down the law and marching Wesley straight back to his dorm room.

It doesn’t stop Wesley teasing again. And again. And again…
But damn. Lloyd doesn’t crack easily. He’s full of principles. He’s unshakable.
He’s the perfect friend to have when Wesley needs help. Like with his truant brother and his old high school principal.

Sometimes, one little lie is all it takes… to find Wesley fake-engaged to his off-limits RA.

What can he say? It seemed like a good idea at the time…

It can be read as a standalone.

Tropes: friends-to-lovers, slow burn, will-they-or-won’t-they, fake fiancĂ©
Genre: New Adult, light-hearted contemporary gay romance

Gemini Keeps Capricorn Excerpt

Wesley knocked again. 
Lloyd inched the door open a half-foot. “I’m only available to students with legitimate issues.” 
“I’m full of issues. I need another condom.” 
The door drifted open as Lloyd left to grab the basket. He tossed it at Wesley. “Go at it, Romeo.” 
Wesley fondled the condoms, stirring them around as he grinned broadly. “With vigor.” 
“Congratulate tonight’s Juliet, would you?” 
“On pulling all this thick-haired beauty?” 
Lloyd shook his head. “On standing it long enough to get naked.” 
Wesley slipped the condoms in his pockets, thrusting his hips out and biting his bottom lip. “It’ll be epic, off-the-charts sex.” 
“Because he’s a Sagittarius?” 
“Because he’s not uncreative and afraid of sex anywhere other than the bed.” Wesley waggled his eyebrows suggestively. 
“It’s what beds are for. I intend to use my back the next sixty years.” 
Wesley swallowed a laugh. “I pity the fool—oh look, here he comes.” 
Lloyd’s boyfriend-of-the-month strode through the stairwell door. Wesley winked at Lloyd and backed down the hall, mouthing, “One week.” 
Inside his room, he threw the condoms into the top drawer along with dozens of others. 
Thumping and groaning sounded from the next room. It wasn’t Lloyd and his boyfriend, but it made Wesley think of them. What would Lloyd be like in bed? Grumpy and demanding, probably. 
Wesley strapped on some headphones and tossed himself onto the bed. Elvis’s deep, sexy voice sang in his ears, while his right hand popped open the buttons on his pants.  
He studied the young, hot Elvis, who had one eyebrow lifted.  
“I know you were a Capricorn,” Wesley said, fisting his hard cock. “But I bet you were hot as hell between the sheets.” He closed his eyes and jerked his dick, failing to get a good Capricorn hammering out of his head. 
“No, no, never,” he said through gritted teeth as he quickened his stroke. “Fuck.” 
His orgasm pulsed long and hard through his denial. He threw an arm over his mouth and swore. “Never going to happen. My next guy will be Sagittarius. That’s a promise.”

Heart-stopping slow burn.
