Author Biography

I have worked for many years in the tech startup scene writing screeds of notes, the results of which you'll find in The Techboys Series. The Refusal is the first novel of this series and in all eight books are planned.

I love helping people escape their daily lives for a short while with the help of a steamy romance, some fun, strong women and gorgeous fictional boyfriends!

I am a Scottish author based in Edinburgh with my husband and I have two grown up children. When I'm not reading or writing, I love running and can often be found in local cafes or out enjoying the beautiful wilderness of Scotland.

The Outcast is book two of the Techboys Series. This is a sexy, modern love story by Eve M. Riley. Dr. Kate Thurman and Fabian Adramovich are two very different people with completely different lives. They happen to meet one fateful day at the hospital. One look and there was a spark that made it hard to look away from each other. Kate was a hardworking medical intern who was too hard on herself, and Fabian was a tattooed, chaotic bad boy. They should not fit together but against all odds they did. The love between them was deep and tempestuous. Being together was difficult and their lives and personalities clashed constantly. Dark forces seemed ready to tear them apart and trouble was brewing. Will Kate and Fabian be able to face these difficulties together or will they break apart under the pressure?

Establishing a romance between two people leading very different lives was a narrative challenge that the author tackled with exceptional skill. The chemistry between Kate and Fabian was sizzling hot. Their interactions were often intense but with complicated circumstances and people opposing their relationship, their love for each other was always under threat. It broke my heart to see their romance riddled with misunderstandings and hurt. Riley articulates their love and struggles in a way that pulled at my heartstrings and made me wish all their cares would be resolved quickly. The exciting plotline paints vivid scenarios which made the story easy to follow and hard to put down. The swapping of first-person narratives between Kate and Fabian allowed me to understand their story from two viewpoints. It was so frustrating to see the feelings they were holding back, even when they were together, and sometimes I just wanted to reach into the book and shake them to remind them how important they are to each other. The fact that The Outcast can bring about such strong feelings in me demonstrates how skillfully Riley has portrayed Kate and Fabian’s story. This incredible book had me spellbound from the start. I can’t wait for more from Eve M. Riley.
