About this deal

Ari is young, and he battles with having his entire future stretched out before him and all the big decisions that come with graduating from high school. Ari’s mom and dad own a bakery and they want their son to continue to live with them and help keep the business afloat, instead of running off with his friends to start a band in the big city. Most purchases from business sellers are protected by the Consumer Contract Regulations 2013 which give you the right to cancel the purchase within 14 days after the day you receive the item. With a little bit of conflict that’s neatly tied up at the end with a beautiful happily ever after, Bloom is one of my favourite books, and definitely one of my favourite graphic novels.

He admires Ari's parents practising the delicate art of stretching pastry dough in perfect harmony and with consummate skill. What’s really refreshing is that this is not a coming out story, there is no gay-angst to deal with. What frustrated me is that Ari, the character who is working in his dad's bakery, is a selfish, self-absorbed, whiny, immature, pouting little brat.Featuring a vibrant rainbow design, and our super-sized Q logo, you won't find a more stylish way to make a statement.

With the summer holidays, Ari dreams of leaving his city, his parents' bakery, going to live with friends and playing in a band. While a tale that evades all the tired tropes of gay life is completely refreshing, there will undoubtedly be those who question whether Bloom is also evading the realities of what young gay men still struggle with, even in 2019. All of our books are 100% brand new, unread and purchased directly from the publishers in bulk allowing us to pass the huge savings on to you!

It took me only a couple of hours to read the whole thing and I desperately wished that there was more. If you’re looking for a quick read, a sweet, summery romance, and an absolutely adorable book about baking, Bloom is absolutely the best choice! Please contact the author if you wish to post any work, or any excerpt thereof, in any other location or format.

Ari went through absolutely no character development whatsoever and was horrible to all those around him. In a desperate attempt to break free from a future he does not want, Ari finds a young man named Hector to work for his parents in his stead.

Overall, this is a fantastic read that cultivates a wide array of representation in a beautiful way. Interviewer: In some ways, Bloom could be considered a coming out story, particularly for Ari – but that isn’t the focus of the story by any stretch, which is honestly refreshing. Beautiful artwork depicts characters coping with life’s increasing responsibilities and is especially sumptuous when focusing on the yummy desserts. He wants to have something meaningful, something his own, but he doesn’t yet know what that might be.
