Nat Horn is almost living the dream. His part as a werewolf extra on the hit show Wolf’s Landing has somehow turned into a regular role. Beautiful rising star Solari Praveen has taken an interest in him. He’s even making enough money to think about getting out of Bluewater Bay someday. Except his retired dad’s dependence on pain medications seems to be getting worse, and Nat’s the only one around to take care of him.

When Nat learns that Solari’s interest isn’t romantic, his disappointment is surprisingly short-lived, because in getting to know her, he also got to know her assistant, Rafael. And Rafael turns out to be the kind of friend—and potential boyfriend—Nat never dared to dream about.

Distracted by his astonishing new life, new friends, and new possibilities, Nat lets his guard down, and suddenly his life goes careening out of control. Racked by guilt, he tries to push his new friends away, but the bonds he’s formed are already too strong. In fact, they’re strong enough to pull him forward, into the future he’s been longing for—but to get there, he’ll have to let go of the past.

Hello out there, lovely readers. I’m Ally Blue. Welcome to the blog tour for my new book, No Small Parts. It’s the latest addition to Riptide Publishing’s awesome Bluewater Bay universe. I love this story, I love my boys—Nat Horn and Rafael Cortez—and I’m excited to give y’all a glimpse behind the scenes. Thanks so much to my blog hosts for having me here, and thank you all for joining me!


Ally Blue is a new to me author but the Bluewater Bay books are not at all new. I really adore how each one is a standalone but they often mingle too. No Small Parts, in my opinion, is one of the best of this series. There's perfect balance between sexy and story. Neither are over-saturated. The characters are relatable and not perfect. The writing is just lovely.

 Wolf's Landing is the supernatural show that is filmed in Bluewater Bay. We are always thrust into this fact with each passing book. Nat Horn, one of the MC's, is an extra on the show and the target of his affections is Solari. But she doesn't even notice him. He totally gets friend zoned! But that works because Solari's assistant, Rafael, is cute and wonderful and perfect for Nat! Rafael has a drea to someday direct and being Solari's assistant hopefully helps him achieve that dream.

Great chemistry between the MC's. I was never questioning them or rolling my eyes at their behavior because they were very real.

I'd give this book a go for sure. Even if you've never read any books in this series. It really was a beautiful read.

 About Ally Blue

Ally Blue is acknowledged by the world at large (or at least by her heroes, who tend to suffer a lot) as the Popess of Gay Angst.

She has a great big suggestively-shaped hat and rides in a bullet-proof Plexiglas bubble in Christmas parades. Her harem of manwhores does double duty as bodyguards and inspirational entertainment. Her favorite band is Radiohead, her favorite color is lime green and her favorite way to waste a perfectly good Saturday is to watch all three extended version LOTR movies in a row.

Her ultimate dream is to one day ditch the evil day job and support the family on manlove alone. She is not a hippie or a brain surgeon, no matter what her kids’ friends say.
