Recent Release: Nothing Special by Jay Northcote



When Noah’s insecurity threatens their fledgling relationship, can Sol convince Noah that he’s enough?

Noah thinks he’s nothing special. Average height, a bit on the skinny side, and cute but rather geeky, he’s relentlessly ordinary. He certainly doesn’t expect to be noticed by Sol, the gorgeous dark-haired stranger Noah usually sees on his commute home.

When a friend persuades Noah to take a big risk in a bid to get Sol’s attention, things turn out better than Noah dared to hope. But Noah doesn’t believe he’s interesting or sexy enough to hold Sol’s attention.

As Sol tries to get closer, Noah tries to protect his heart by pulling away. If their relationship is going to survive, Noah needs to accept that Sol sees him very differently to how Noah sees himself. Because to Sol, Noah is something very special indeed.


This was a very entertaining, easy read about two really sweet, drama-free guys. After some mutual pining and longing looks in the train, Noah and Sol get together in the cutest way thanks to Metro and a little prodding from Noah’s best friend. They seem to fall in like/lust/… maybe even love with heartwarming ease. Things are shaken up a bit near the end, though, with Noah’s insecurities attempting to put a brake on a good thing. Loved how the author did that and so unexpectedly upped the emotional stakes in this story. The epilogue was the cutest ever, so romantic!!
