Book Cover


Close Proximity, Book 2

Sometimes love is a lot closer to home than you think.

Charlie Burroughs can’t keep a man. All he wants is a good relationship like the ones he sees his friends having, but none of the men he picks ever work out. Despite him trying to be the perfect boyfriend, the men are either threatened by his looks or his epilepsy or a combination of the two. It’s lucky that he has his best friend Misha to turn to. The two of them are closer than peas in a pod and fiercely loyal to each other. He can’t imagine his life without Misha in it.

Misha Lebedinsky is the complete opposite of his best friend. Being the support system for his mum and twin sisters leaves Misha with neither the time nor the inclination for a relationship. Quick and frequent hook-ups are his favourite means of communication and any other pesky emotional needs he has are met by Charlie, who he’s devoted to. He lives a life of happy compartmentalization with no intention of ever changing.

All of this changes when the two best friends move in together.

Being in close proximity means that they suddenly start to see each other in a very different light. But Charlie struggles when his drive to be the perfect partner clashes with the fact that he’s in love with a man who knows every little thing about him. And even if he can get past that, can a relationship ever work with a man who’d need a dictionary to tell him what love means?

From bestselling author Lily Morton comes a love story about a sunny librarian who has relationship written all over him and a banker who doesn’t even have it in his blurb. This is the second book in the Close Proximity series, but it can be read as a standalone.

Charlie Sunshine by Lily Morton is Book 2 in the Close Proximity series. This book is a best friends to lovers romance and one of my favorite I’ve read!

Charlie (Sunshine) Burroughs is a librarian with a great sense of humor, a sunny disposition, a beautiful face and seemingly bad taste in men. He suffers from epilepsy due to an injury and he feels like his condition is too much for most men to handle. Charlie’s best friend Misha is not “most men”. Misha and Charlie are lifelong friends and the two are amazing together. So amazing that everyone sees it but them. When circumstances have Charlie moving in with Misha, the two besties begin to see each other in a new light. Both have always known the other is attractive, they’ve just never noticed how incredibly attracted they are to each other. These two men are always there for each other…unconditionally. Will adding sex to their relationship make everything go wrong or go so very right?

I loved this book, I loved it so much! There is so much humor, friendship and love in this book! Charlie is a one in a million man and Misha is his perfect match. I loved that I and everyone else sees them as a couple long before they recognize it themselves. These two are soulmates, without a doubt…the perfect pair! If you’re looking for something that will make you laugh from the beginning, make you swoon and fill your heart, this book is for you. Lily Morton has the ability to mix the perfect combination of humor and romance and this book may be my new favorite of hers. I just kept thinking that everyone should have a friendship in their lives like Charlie and Misha have. Fantastic book and I so highly recommend it!

“You staying for a while?” my mum asks from the seat at the head of the table. Even after all these years, I feel a tiny pang of surprise. It was my dad’s chair, and I can still see him there, his dark hair wild with him pushing his hand through it and laughing loudly. He was always laughing.
I blink the thought away and focus on her question. “Of course I’m staying. You summoned me, didn’t you?”
She sighs. “That makes you sound like a bloody demon.” She looks me up and down disapprovingly. “At least take your jacket off, Misha. You look like you’re about to approve me for a mortgage.”
“You do actually know what I do, don’t you?” I say, standing up so I can hang my jacket on the back of the chair.
She waves her hand airily. “It’s something to do with money. Anything else is a bit of a mystery. Sounds a bit like a gardening job.”
“I’m a hedge fund manager, not Alan Titchmarsh,” I say snidely.
She laughs, not a bit affected by my scowl. “Aunt Ava still asks if you can go round and trim her bush.”
“Good God,” I say and then falter because there are no words for the image she just conjured in my head.

  1. Five weeks ago my boyfriend broke up with me. It all started when i went to summer camp i was trying to contact him but it was not going through. So when I came back from camp I saw him with a young lady kissing in his bed room, I was frustrated and it gave me a sleepless night. I thought he will come back to apologies but he didn't come for almost three week i was really hurt but i thank Dr.Azuka for all he did i met Dr.Azuka during my search at the internet i decided to contact him on his email he brought my boyfriend back to me just within 48 hours i am really happy.
