Guest Post: Pawsitively in Love by M.J. O’Shea

Hey there this is MJ O’Shea! I thought I’d introduce you to my character Evan, from Pawsitively In Love I won’t give him any more of an introduction. I think I’ll let him do that for himself.

Hi Evan!

Tell us about your hobbiesI really like to work on my house. It was PawsitivelyInLoveLGbuilt in the 1920s and has a lot of great features but it still has a ways to go with renovation in some places. And I like to grocery shop. That makes me sound pretty boring. I guess my newest hobby is pug puppy owner. He’s the best thing ever.

Where do you like to socialize?I’m still pretty new to town. I’ve met a few people at the gym and I like to go have a few drinks with them at The Mix and the Silverstone. They’re the only two gay bars in my neighborhood.

What’s your favorite season?Definitely summer. Isn’t that every teacher’s favorite season? Walking out of my office on the last day before summer break is such a relief.

If you could live in another decade what would it be?Probably the ‘50s. I love the style and I love how hopeful everyone was about the future. It seems like we’ve lost a lot of that innocence and order.

Are you a dog or cat person?You know, a few weeks ago I would’ve said neither, but now? Definitely dogs. Having Dexter around has made a huge difference in my house. I love how affectionate he is.

What’s your role in the family? I, um, can we not talk about my family? Thanks. It’s just… a bit personal.

Who is your best friend? I suppose Dexter, my pug. Or Scout. She lives next door. She’s still learning to walk without tripping. I guess I don’t do a lot of the friendship stuff…It’s easier to hang out at home.

What was your high school group? I was kind of a floater, I suppose. Not unliked but not part of a group either. It, well, Iet’s just say I was happy when high school was over. I don’t really miss anyone from back then.

That was just a little bit of time with Evan, one of the main characters in Pawsitively In Love. To read a bit more about him and his co-star Austin, check out the blurb below!

Thanks for having me stop by ❤


Pawsitively In Love

What Austin Lloyd lacks in academics, he makes up for in his love of the animals who frequent his pet salon. He’s not lucky in romance, though, and his family would like him to settle down with a good man. Austin—and his golden retriever, Maggie—couldn’t agree more.

Evan Partridge isn’t good at letting people in. His messy family life and the past that’s shaped him aren’t worth bringing up. But his pug, Dexter, sure likes the pet salon owner.

Austin and Evan get off to a rough start, but being friends soon turns into something more. Unfortunately, Evan’s secretive behavior nearly does the relationship in, and the budding love affair almost crashes and burns when Evan’s troubled sister shows up on his doorstep.

Not speaking to each other is killing them both, but Evan doesn’t know how to keep Austin and help his sister at the same time. He just knows he has to try. Winning back Austin’s trust back, however, is going to take a whole lot of work.
