Release day: The Boy Toy

17 November 2020

Today is the official release of The Boy Toy by Nicola Marsh (ebook, paperback and audiobook, Berkley Romance). Here’s the blurb:

A woman ready to give up on love meets her match in a man she never expected to fall for in this heartwarming and steamy new romantic comedy by USA Today bestselling author Nicola Marsh.

For almost a decade, successful 37-year-old Samira Broderick has used her bustling LA practice as an excuse to avoid a trip home to Australia. She still resents her meddling Indian mother for arranging her marriage to a man who didn’t stick around when the going got tough, but now with a new job Down Under, she’s finally ready to reconnect with her. And while she’s there, a hot international fling might be just what she needs to get out of her recent funk.

Aussie stuntman, Rory Radcliffe, has been hiding his stutter for years by avoiding speaking roles. When a job he can’t refuse comes up as a reality show host, he knows he’ll need some help for the audition: a dialect coach. But he finds himself at a loss for words when he discovers it’s the same sexy woman with whom he just had a mind-blowing one-night stand…

Samira can think of many reasons why Rory is completely wrong for her: he’s ten years her junior, for one, and he’s not Indian–something Samira’s mother would never approve of. Even if things were to get serious, there’s no reason to tell her mother…is there?

Nicola dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

The Boy Toy is predominantly set in Dandenong, Melbourne, a multicultural hub and I love that readers all around the world will get a snapshot into our Aussie culture. It’s a diverse, own voices romance, and several aspects of the story are close to my heart: biracial heroine, a hero with a stutter, infertility, physiotherapy, allied health … As someone with a stutter, I particularly identify with Rory, the Aussie stuntman hero (who looks like Chris Hemsworth!) because I too experience a lot of the insecurities he does. A word of warning before you read this book: have some Indian food on hand, or a menu for your nearest restaurant, because you’ll be hungry!

You can find out more about this book at Nicola’s website or buy it from Amazon.
