About the Author
Sue Brown is owned by her dog and two children. When she isn't following their orders, she can be found plotting at her laptop. In fact she hides so she can plot and has got expert at ignoring the orders. Sue discovered M/M erotica at the time she woke up to find two men kissing on her favorite television series. The series was boring; the kissing was not. She may be late to the party, but she's made up for it since, writing fan fiction until she was brave enough to venture out into the world of original fiction.

The Next Call
Sue Brown is an exceptional author who takes on difficult storyline and brings them to life. This book was one of the hardest I have ever read. My emotions were all over the place. I’ve laughed, I’ve cried and I’ve even got annoyed, the end result was I really loved this rollercoaster ride.
Mark is a great guy with a pathetic ex boyfriend. He knocked Marks confidence and made him feel inferior; he then meets a great guy who is perfect for him. Things were not meant to be and Mark finds out the hard way that his friends love him just the way he is.
Ricky is not out, he is forced into marriage, and he badly needs a friend. He calls the LGBT helpline to talk and just be himself for a while. Him and Mark strike up a strange friendship that seems to help them both.
I like to read a book where I learn new thing or get educated on the struggles some people suffer in real life. This book ticks every one of those boxes. I learned how important LGBT helplines are to those too scared to be themselves, how hard the volunteers work for a happier outcome and also that some people are not in the closet by choice.
Overall this book has a fascinating storyline that had me gripped but still kept me wondering what would happen next.
I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a well round emotional story. You will need a box of tissues handy.
