Do Opposites Attract?

by Virginia Nelson

The saying is that opposites attract, but usually when we see that sort of relationship in real life, it is a red-hot mess. I mean, I’ve craned my neck a few times to watch the train wreck of people who were obviously attracted to one another, yet had nothing in common and it made their relationship a battle ground—a war zone.
But sometimes, well, it works out. Sometimes the things that make them attracted, those opposing forces, end up making the other person stronger. One of them is really creative minded and the other is better at planning and logistics? That couple could probably take over the world if they weren’t so happy together and occupied just being in love.
Although my Zero Ohio Story was a sexy mm romance, I think the theme holds true for a lot of genres and a lot of different kinds of people. Riley is neurotic to the point of having his issues literally cripple him. He wants out, wants more than what he’s allowing himself to experience. Basil? He’s been hurting himself by not valuing what he is. Thinking he’s useless for much more than his ability to have sex, the man is afraid to hope for more.
I would like to think they find something in each other that not only helps them and satisfies them sexually, but also maybe helps them be the people they want to be.

Riley Gold likes things neat. He appreciates order, organization. Sure, he wants to find love but he sticks to the kitchen, loving his life as a chef, where he can carefully measure, time, and control every situation.
     Basil Culver grew up alone. An orphan, he got bounced from home to home and learned at a young age to keep people at a distance. Attachment meant eventual agony—when the person unfailingly abandoned him. Better to live every moment, allow for the chaos of the universe, and keep rolling.
     When these opposites clash, sparks fly. Can Basil manage to rumple Riley’s carefully tucked sheets?

About the Author

Virginia Nelson believed them when they said, “Write what you know.” Small town girl writing small town romance, her characters are as full of flaws, misunderstandings, and flat out mistakes as Virginia herself. When she’s not writing or plotting to take over the world, she likes to hang out with the greatest kids in history, play in the mud, drive far too fast, and scream at inanimate objects. Virginia likes knights in rusted and dinged up armor, heroes that snarl instead of croon, and heroines who can’t remember to say the right thing even with an author writing their dialogue. Her books are full of snark, sex, and random acts of ineptitude—not always in that order.
