The Proof Is The Way It Hurts a new novella by ES Carter is LIVE and 99c/99p or FREE with Kindle Unlimited!!
This is a really lovely second chance M/M romance. A quick, easy read that is not short on emotion, heat, or romance.
“I thought life had taken everything from me.
The man I was born to love.
But it didn’t.
Life takes, but it’s up to you to get it back.”
After his tour in the military, George returns to his hometown a changed man, unsure of his reception. There is only one person’s opinion he cares about and there is only one person’s forgiveness and acceptance that he seeks.
“The proof is in the way it hurts to be without them.
The proof is how that hurt can only be soothed by the arms of a lover you thought you’d lost.
The proof is in forgiveness, whether deserved or not.”
Short in pages but definitely not short in feeling, George and Dylan’s story is one I will definitely be reading over and over.
Two small town boys fell in love.
One got left behind.
One went off to war.
He came back a man.
A broken, lonely, desperate man searching for the one thing to ease his pain.
Can Dylan forgive George for leaving him?
Can love snuff out the pain?
The Proof Is the Way It Hurts.
*This is a standalone M/M novella. A shorter version of this story was featured as a KU Korner’s Bedtime Story*

About the Author:
ES Carter lives in Cardiff, South Wales. The home of castles, dragons and folklore.
Her family joke that she was born with a book in her hand, and the urge to write stories soon followed.
At eleven, she won her school’s literary prize. At ages fourteen to sixteen – her poetry phase after falling in love with Dylan Thomas and e.e. cummings – she had a few poems published, but life, love and family overtook her dreams, and she was in her thirties when she began the scary journey of self-publishing.
Her debut and internationally best-selling series, ‘Love by Numbers’, are a set of interconnected stand alone romances, all with varying themes of love. From second-chance to romantic comedy and M/M romance. These stories do not need to be read in order, in fact, she is often guilty of advising readers to start at the last book and work their way back through.
Contemporary romance is not the only genre she writes, her second series, ‘The Red Order’, is as dark and twisted as you can get, but there is beauty there too if you can open your eyes and look.
With many more stories bursting to be set free, she hopes you stay along for the ride.
She loves to connect with readers, so please feel free to friend/follow her on Facebook, IG and Twitter or join her reader’s group, E’s Elite ❤
