Choosing Happy by Aria Grace

 I’m a sucker for books set in Portland, so opting-in to this tour was a no-brainer. Please welcome Aria Grace–she’s brought an exclusive excerpt to share, and a giveaway.

Choosing Happy is book three in a series. The good news is they can be read in any order, and the great news is that book one is free!

Not willing to spend another night alone in the house both my parents died in, I slip on my helmet and hop on my R1 for a ride. As usual, I end up at Ray’s, a bar that’s always good for a few drinks and a blow job. Tonight, I’m not even in the mood for a drink.

I walk in and head straight to Caleb. He’s there every night. I’ve only picked him up a few times but he’s a good kid that’s working his way through community college in a relatively safe way. Ray lets him use a room upstairs to meet tricks three nights a week if he works as a server the other four. It’s not a bad gig if you can get it.

He’s got his head buried in some kind of math book when I nudge his shoulder with my hip. “Buy you a drink?”

“Steve!” He drops the book and stands to give me a hug. “I haven’t seen you around in a while.”

“Haven’t been around in a while.” I give him a quick peck on the cheek. “But it’s nice that you noticed.”

“Of course, I noticed.” He tucks his textbook into his bag on the floor and turns fully toward me. “So how’s the life of a big waffle king?”

Smart ass. He’s actually brilliant but his parents couldn’t handle looking at his feminine features after they caught him kissing an older guy in the neighborhood. They did the only thing they felt was reasonable. They cashed in his college fund and handed him a check for twelve grand when he turned eighteen. He’s been on his own since.
