Blog Tour: Gemini Keeps Capricorn by Anyta Sunday (Excerpt, Review + Giveaway)

A Spotlight on Book 3 in the Signs of Love series by Anyta Sunday!

Title: Gemini Keeps Capricorn (Signs of Love #3)

Publisher: Anyta Sunday

Release Date (Print & Ebook): December 18, 2017

Book blurb:

Sometimes, one stubborn Capricorn is all it takes…to drive Wesley Hidaka to crazy, flirtatious lengths.
Wesley loves annoying his RA Lloyd Reynolds. He just can’t help it. Lloyd is focused, decisive, grounded. He has this amusing ability to follow rules.
Of course Wesley wants Lloyd to break one…or three hundred.

Sometimes, one diabolically grinning Gemini is all it have Lloyd laying down the law and marching Wesley straight back to his dorm room.
It doesn’t stop Wesley teasing again. And again. And again…
But damn. Lloyd doesn’t crack easily. He’s full of principles. He’s unshakable.
He’s the perfect friend to have when Wesley needs help. Like with his truant brother and his old high school principal.

Sometimes, one little lie is all it takes… to find Wesley fake-engaged to his off-limits RA.
What can he say? It seemed like a good idea in the moment . . .

“Gemini Keeps Capricorn” serves up a double shot of cluelessness, with a side of rock’n’roll and topped with a slow burn HEA. It can be read as a standalone.

Tropes: friends-to-lovers, slow burn, will-they-or-won’t-they, fake fiancé

Genre: New Adult, light-hearted contemporary gay romance


Wesley knocked again.
Lloyd inched the door open a half-foot. “I’m only available to students with legitimate issues.”
“I’m full of issues. I need another condom.”
The door drifted open as Lloyd left to grab the basket. He tossed it at Wesley. “Go at it, Romeo.”
Wesley fondled the condoms, stirring them around as he grinned broadly. “With vigor.”
“Congratulate tonight’s Juliet, would you?”
“On pulling all this thick-haired beauty?”
Lloyd shook his head. “On standing it long enough to get naked.”
Wesley slipped the condoms in his pockets, thrusting his hips out and biting his bottom lip. “It’ll be epic, off-the-charts sex.”
“Because he’s a Sagittarius?”
“Because he’s not uncreative and afraid of sex anywhere other than the bed.” Wesley waggled his eyebrows suggestively.
“It’s what beds are for. I intend to use my back the next sixty years.”
Wesley swallowed a laugh. “I pity the fool—oh look, here he comes.”
Lloyd’s boyfriend-of-the-month strode through the stairwell door. Wesley winked at Lloyd and backed down the hall, mouthing, “One week.
Inside his room, he threw the condoms into the top drawer along with dozens of others.
Thumping and groaning sounded from the next room. It wasn’t Lloyd and his boyfriend, but it made Wesley think of them. What would Lloyd be like in bed?
Grumpy and demanding, probably.
Wesley strapped on some headphones and tossed himself onto the bed. Elvis’s deep, sexy voice sang in his ears, while his right hand popped open the buttons on his pants.
He studied the young, hot Elvis, who had one eyebrow lifted.
“I know you were a Capricorn,” Wesley said, fisting his hard cock. “But I bet you were hot as hell between the sheets.” He closed his eyes and jerked his dick, failing to get a good Capricorn hammering out of his head.
“No, no, never,” he said through gritted teeth as he quickened his stroke. “Fuck.”
His orgasm pulsed long and hard through his denial. He threw an arm over his mouth and swore. “Never going to happen. My next guy will be Sagittarius. That’s a promise.”

4.5 Stars!

Gemini Keeps Capricorn is book 3 in the Signs of Love series, but it can be perfectly read as a standalone. I do suggest reading the other books, too, though, since they're great, especially Leo Loves Aries!

This book features the slow burn relationship that characterizes Anyta Sunday and she does it so well that even if it takes a lot of time for the MCs to get together, the UST is so delicious throughout the book that you don't really feel it... much. ;) Wesley is a really fun character and as a Gemini, I felt identified with some aspects of him. He was so oblivious, too, but it was part of his charm. When a book is told from only one of the MC's POV, sometimes it's difficult to get a real 'feel' of the other main character, that wasn't the case here. Lloyd was relatable and sweet and really had the patience of a saint. Together they were explosive, the chemistry between them sizzling off the pages, funny thing is that there weren't even that many sex scenes and still the book was hot. That takes talent. 

I really enjoyed the secondary storyline with Caleb (Wesley's brother) and their mother. It gave the book a depth that it would've lacked otherwise. 

While Leo Loves Aries remains my favorite of the series, Gemini Keeps Capricorn is a close second place now. It was very entertaining and fun to read and I fully recommend it!
