Rick | 139 comments Raining Men by Rick R. Reed
Release days are always a curious combination of joy, sadness, and anxiety. The baby (book) you have labored over for so many months has now left your hands for good and, for better or worse, is now part of the world. No longer is it something in your imagination, or your heart, or even your computer's hard drive. Now your baby is open to praise, interpretation, rejection, and maybe even bullying, and there's very little you can do to stimulate or prevent any of the above.

It is with great pleasure that I give you Raining Men, my heartfelt love story about a sexually-addicted man finding his way toward loving himself and, at last, that special one. It's not an easy journey and it's one fraught with danger, missteps, and outright peril. But if you travel along with Bobby Nelson, you'll also discover hope, joy, and the transformative power of love.

And, as I always do on a new release day, I am giving away a free, autographed print copy of Raining Men to one winner. Simply leave a comment below (include your e-mail so I can be in touch if you win). The contest is available to those living in the US. I will pick a winner next Friday, June 7.


The character you loved to hate in Chaser becomes the character you will simply love in Raining Men.

It’s been raining men for most of Bobby Nelson’s adult life. Normally, he wouldn’t have it any other way, but lately something’s missing. Now, he wants the deluge to slow to a single special drop. But is it even possible for Bobby to find “the one” after endless years of hooking up?

When Bobby’s father passes away, Bobby finally examines his rocky relationship with the man and how it might have contributed to his inability to find the love he yearns for. Guided by a sexy therapist, a Sex Addicts Anonymous group, a well-endowed Chihuahua named Johnny Wadd, and Bobby’s own cache of memories, Bobby takes a spiritual, sexual, and emotional journey to discover that life’s most satisfactory love connections lie in quality, not quantity. And when he’s ready to love not only himself but someone else, sex and love fit, at last, into one perfect package.

“Rick R. Reed makes the commitment to write about issues of interest in the gay community and he does so regularly. Sexual addiction is certainly one we hear about and it’s universal. I found myself pulled into this story as I realized what was going on with Bobby. I wanted Bobby to show the vulnerable aspects of himself he has buried over time to avoid hurt. I wanted him to be whole, to be happy and to find himself. This is not an easy journey, but a journey very worth taking.

“...another amazing story...Never in a million years would I have thought that I would love Bobby. Only a truly talented author could turn a character like him around as he did.”

From SID LOVE M/M Reviews
“...definitely a keeper. I would recommend it to anyone…a real deal, with a believable storyline and some great writing by a very talented author.”

From MM Good Book Reviews
“And while this is definitely a romance with a HEA I get to say that the achievement of that HEA has never felt more realistic and approachable...The entire book felt as if the author handpicked the characters straight from out on the streets, stripped them of their stories and wrote their lives for us to have a glimpse of…A very remarkable book that the forever-romantics would not want to miss.”

Rick | 139 comments He does indeed, but sometimes the most rewarding journeys are the longest (and bumpiest).
