What if this is the last time we lie like this?

Uncertainty is keeping Ellery Luker awake at night and robbing him of his appetite. It’s been five days since the love of his life and partner of twenty-five years, Jools, went to the doctor. Five days since the biopsy. Five days of going crazy with worry and what ifs?

What if Jools suffers from the same disease that stole Elle

I’m still trying to figure out how to dance with Nell but I’m getting there!
There are times when my book dance is seamless and smooth.
Other times it can be awkward with frequent toe stepping.
And on occasion, everything is wrong and I’m desperate for the song to end. (thankfully not with Nell)
I’m happy to report that I’m getting my Iris groove down.
My first time was tentative but enjoyable.
The second was stiff and strained.
This third time was a charm!
Go Team Luker!
I quickly fell into step

This story had all the fixin’s to emotionally ruin my life. Luckily, it didn’t… but it did make me cry.
Jools and Ellery have been together since college, when Jools would see Ellery in the library and take his breath away. Now, twenty-five years later, they were still just as in love now as they were all those years ago… so what would Ellery do if something happened to his beloved Jools?

Having lost his mother to cancer when he was eleven, the thought of losing his husband to the same thing had

This short story will have all the feels coming to the surface. I don't have a significant other but I have been my mother's 24/7 caregiver for the better part of the last 25 years, the worry and heartache that comes from waiting is excruciating. So I may not fully understand the fear of losing your other half as Ellery is dealing with, I do understand the places your mind goes when the waiting game is at your door. The what ifs can damage a person's spirit. Jools does his best to ease Ellery's ...more

A wonderful short story!

As far as I'm concerned, Nell Iris is the queen of MM short stories. In this very short tale, she grabbed me and hooked me in the first couple of pages. More accurately, she grabbed me with the blurb; as soon as I read it, I knew that this book would probably tear my heart out.

The love that Ellery has for Jools oozed off the pages and wrapped me up in the story. I really wasn't sure how this one would end and I'm not telling. I'll tell you that my emotions were all over t

OMG! Team Luker is an exceptional short story by Nell Iris. In just a small amount of pages, I was taken on one hell of an emotional journey. It's honestly one of the sweetest short stories I've ever read.

Nell Iris is a romantic at heart who believes everyone deserves a happy ending. She’s a bona fide bookworm (learned to read long before she started school), wouldn’t dream of going anywhere without something to read (not even the ladies room), loves music (and singing along but let’s face it, she’s not Celine Dion), and is a real Star Trek nerd (Make it so). She loves words, poetry, wine, and Sudo ...more
