Do you remember Brady’s roommates from Save Me Santa? Gareth and Cashel who were a bit confused about everything? Yep, they’re back and getting their own book. Learning to Walk goes live on August 25th and is now on preorder.
I had so many fun questions about these guys, but when I started writing the book, I could answer about five percent of them. I had no idea if they’d been together before or what they were looking for or what was going on in general. Basically, all I knew was that Gareth was really confused about spankings and what Brady saw in Jude, and Cashel wasn’t sure what was going on.
That’s when Bates stepped in.
He’s really curious and jumps right in to offer to help them figure things out. He absolutely loves all the crazy people living in the building and he’s the nosiest character I’ve ever written. He’d probably drive everyone crazy if he weren’t so cute and so well-meaning.
After he overhears Brady talking about the roommates and their questions, Bates decided the only neighborly thing to do is to go up and offer his conversational skills and his knowledge about spanking. Everyone needs such a helpful neighbor.
I can’t wait to show you how funny they all are in such different ways and for you to see their chemistry. It’s not technically slow burn (depending on how you define that) but their story is going to be spread out over two books, so don’t expect every first to happen in book one. They’re doing things at their own pace and I’m just following along and telling you about their adventure.
They’re at a good place at the end of book one, but Gareth still has some questions to work out and Cashel has some fantasies to confess, so they definitely needed a second book. But I’m not going to leave you waiting for book two. Learning to Run comes out on September 15th and is also on preorder now.
I can’t wait to show you how funny they all are as Bates helps answer all their questions and gives them a push in the romantic direction.

Gareth: Weirdest neighbor ever…but he has an addicting smile and he was helpful in explaining Brady’s…well, Brady’s love of interesting things.
Cashel: Craziest way to ever be asked out on a date…but Gareth is happy and the nosy neighbor is nice…and a good kisser.
Bates: Best first date ever…and the best apartment building ever.
Everyone sees meeting a potential date for the first time a little differently.
Someone might walk away from a first meeting confused about names and wondering how they ended up with a date.
Someone else might walk away appreciating an offer for a bit of naughty help.
Another might end up loving life and hoping that the two cuties upstairs are just as adorable on a date as they are when he’s eavesdropping.
However, there are a few things everyone can agree on…their neighbors are fascinating, Gareth has questions, and Cashel has no idea what’s going to happen with the wickedly helpful neighbor.
Author’s Note: While this duet is part of the Education of the Heart series, these are the roommates from Save Me Santa. While it’s not technically necessary, I think Learning to Walk and Learning to Run will be more enjoyable if you’ve already read Brady’s story, Save Me Santa.
