Indigo Road Tour Banner

Title: Indigo Road
Author: R.J. Jones
Genre: New Adult, Gay Romance, Contemporary
Length: Novel
Cover artist: Meredith Russell


Two best friends take a year off to find themselves… and end up finding each other.
Joshua Simpson has just finished four years at Purdue University, but that’s not why he’s buzzing with excitement. Once they’ve said goodbye to their families, Josh and his best friend Alex are taking off to discover America in an old but reliable VW van, planning on not seeing snow for an entire year.
Josh has always considered himself straight—except for that one time in college—so when he and Alex are living in such close proximity on the road, he’s unsure what these new feelings mean. Is it because they’re spending 24/7 together, or is it something deeper? And does it really matter since Josh has only ever seen Alex with women?
While in Oregon, Josh meets Johnno, a sexy but confusing Aussie surfer. While having an impromptu surfing lesson, Johnno helps Josh realize who he is and what he wants—but Alex’s reaction leaves Josh confused.
From a Montana ranch to the bright lights and dangerous streets of Los Angeles to a dark and lonely deserted highway in Alabama, join Josh and Alex as they drive around the US, discovering not only who they are, but who they can be together.

WE STUMBLED up the stairs to our room at the B&B, and no sooner had we closed the door than Alex had me pinned against it, mouth assaulting my throat.“Tell me this isn’t weird,” Alex said on a breath.“It’s not weird. It’s right.”“Tell me… tell me you want this as much as I do.”Alex’s lips made their way to my ear and the soft spot behind it, making any coherent thought impossible.“Want… you,” I managed to squeeze out.In an instant, his body was gone from mine and I was left cold without him. Alex grabbed my hand and led me quickly to the bed, pushing me down and climbing on top.“I don’t know what I’m doing,” he said, resuming the assault on my throat as he pushed my shirt up. He found a nipple and tweaked it hard.“Ungh, more of that.”My hips had a mind of their own as they bucked, trying to find some friction. I’d never been so turned on. Alex palmed my cock through my jeans, his movements gentle and hesitant.“Is this okay?” Alex asked.“Better if my jeans weren’t in the way.”“Um, I…”I stopped his movement, placing my hand over his but not removing it from my groin.“It’s okay. We don’t have to do anything you don’t want to. I have no idea what I’m doing either, but I know I want something.”Alex smiled, his eyes shining. “I’m so glad you’re just as clueless.”

My Review


Josh and Alex have graduated and are now heading off on a road tour of US, there plan is to avoid snow for a year, enjoy their freedom and have a great adventure.

They're traveling in a VW van that has been converted into a travelling van, it's s beautiful indigo colour and they name her Maude. 

This book is an addictive read, you won't want to put it down, I didn't want to! 

Josh and Alex are just friends but, Josh has had twinges in parts before through being near Alex, but he pushes them feelings aside.

This is a story of discovery and learning and it's beautiful watching these two get closer and eventually become lovers, even then they're on a learning curve and it is sweet and sexy when they get together. 

Their journey isn't all about love, there're mishaps and things that could mean trouble mixed in.

I really loved the realism of this story, the characters were perfectly normal people falling in love, stumbling through the process at times with worries and an innocent feel to them, well innocent for a little while then things got fun. 

A wonderful friends to lovers MM read. 

Recommended read.

About the author

R.J. Jones started as a reader and eventually made the progression to reviewing. It wasn’t until two men popped into her thoughts, insisting on telling her their story that she started to write.
It started with one scene. A hot and dirty one in the shower…
R.J.’s initial thought was if she could write their scene then they’d shut up and allow her to concentrate on other aspects of her day. Not so. That shower scene ended up being 3000 words long and three hours of work.  And still, they didn’t shut up.  They told her their entire story and she didn’t sleep for days. Sometimes she couldn’t keep up with what they were telling her and she had to keep a notebook by her bed.
Whilst she was writing their story a side character decided he needed his story told too. Then other characters followed suit.
You see the problem? If she ever wants to sleep again then she needs to write.
R.J. is a wife and a mother to two boys. She is surrounded by males. Even her dog is a boy.
