Kelly Cannon is satisfied with his life. He has friends, a wonderful family, and a great job. But his love life has reached a new level of pitiful. Why? Well, his heart decided to break all the rules. Don’t fall in love with a straight guy. And definitely, don’t fall in love with your best friend.
NFL standout Britton “Blue” Montgomery has pressure coming at him from all sides. From his father, who’s only interested in Blue’s football career. From his coaches, who just want him to play without getting injured again. From the fans. From his agent. And from his mother, who has popped up on the radar after leaving his family years before. And now his relationship with Kelly is on shaky ground, and that frightens Blue more than anything.
When Kelly admits he’s in love with Blue, bonds are tested, and Blue has to decide what’s really important. He doesn’t want to lose the number-one person in his life, but the cost to keep Kelly close might be more than he’s willing to pay.
It’s a good thing his nickname is the Blueprint—it’s time to draft a new set of plans.
☆☆☆Guest Post~S.E. Harmon☆☆☆
Hi all! Thanks to Dirty Books Obsession for having me on my blog tour. I’m here to talk a little bit about my latest release, The Blueprint. When I started outlining this story, I knew several things—I wanted Blue to be a football player, I wanted the main characters to be best friends, and I wanted the story to be OFY/GFY. I know OFY/GFY can be a controversial topic, but it’s one of my favorite tropes…and I like to write what I like to read. Besides, what could be better than sexual discovery with the person that knows you best in the whole world?
Blue’s path to love isn’t an easy one, but that’s to be expected. There’s a little frustrating push and pull, but that’s to be expected, too. His indecision almost splits him into two people. Part of him who knows this burgeoning thing with Kelly can’t go any further…not if he wants his life to go exactly the way he planned. But then there’s another part of him…the part that just doesn’t give a fuck and wants Kelly no matter what.
Nothing worth having is ever easy, and Blue and Kelly are about to learn that lesson well. I hope you have fun with these guys…I certainly did.

Kelly took the broom and started to sweep again. “Apparently part of my mother’s welcome-home package includes cleaning out the garage within an inch of its life. What’re you doing here?”
That was a good fucking question. One I still hadn’t come up with an answer for. Clearly he was fine, and I was the biggest worrywart who ever worried. “What does it look like?”
“It looks like you’re here just in time to help me clean out the garage.”
“Dream on, Cannon.”
He brushed his hair out of his eyes again. It was longer than he usually liked it, but I thought the length looked good. It suited him. “How’d you even know I was here?” he asked.
“I called Kennedy. Apparently she still knows how to use a phone.” My tone was pointed, and he blushed a little and swept more vigorously.
“I told you I was fine.”
“No, you texted me you were fine. I haven’t spoken with you since the night of the party. What was I supposed to think?”
“That I’d been chopped up by an ax murderer. Obviously that’s the only reasonable conclusion.”
“Clearly,” I said with a sigh. I didn’t bother to tell him he wasn’t amusing—mostly because it was obvious.
“You were supposed to report me missing, not come charging down here to find me. You’re the executor of my will, Blue.” He sent me an accusing look. “How can I count on you to carry out my last wishes if you don’t follow instructions?”
“That depends. Do I still get your Infiniti in your will?”
“Kennedy got me out of pepper planting this morning, so she gets the Infiniti. I’m leaving you my Planet Earth DVDs.”
It felt good to joke with him, laugh with him, be with him. A Kelly who wanted space made me anxious. There was a little embarrassment mixed in there too. Apparently my oldest friend was ready to move on from our clingy childhood ways, and I wasn’t.
“I still can’t believe you made a four-hour drive just to see if I was okay.”
Well, when he put it so incredulously, it did sound a tad stalkerish. “That’s what happens when you don’t answer the fucking phone.”
“I’m sorry.” He sent me a look that was sincerely apologetic. “You know how I can get.”
I did. The knowing didn’t make it any easier to bear. “You can’t just clam up like that. It’s not fair.”
“Of course I am. Not to mention there are a couple ways to get away from me, sure, but none of them include something as simple as sending me to voicemail.”
His mouth curved. “Good to know.”
