Book Description

Surviving on alcohol and antidepressants, Mark staggers through his unhappy marriage and watches his London architectural business head for the rocks. When another nasty argument with his wife sends him to the gym to blow off steam, a tall, dark stranger enflames a part of him he's denied all these years, trying to convince himself he's not "weird." But Mark's not weird, he's gay. And after a taste of Attila's lips, nothing can put that genie back in the bottle...

(Novella: Word Count 24,522)

Editorial Reviews


"This was a great read; the romance was real spicy and intriguing. If you're curious about M/M romance, this is the perfect place to start." The To Be Read Pile 

"I consider this to be a top read, and Mr. La Roche will be on my list for writers to explore in the future." Man Oh Man Reviews

"Tristram La Roche's debut novella is a treat for the diehard romantic in all of us. Poignant and sweet, it's a celebration of the sort of love that sneaks up on Mark and Attila, not like a welcome breeze on a warm day; rather, it's the sort of love that hits like a hurricane and sweeps the two men away, powerless against it." Top2Bottom Reviews

From the Author

On My Knees is, of course, loaded with meaning. Poor Mark is going through hell. Bumping into the handsome Attila at the gym is the catalyst to change all that. This is a coming out story laced with love at first sight, betrayal, guilt, joy and hope. And sex of course. I went through something similar and I found writing this book cathartic. On My Knees will always have a special place in my heart and I hope you enjoy it.

5.0 out of 5 stars This Hits The Mark June 17, 2011
By Pandy
Format:Kindle Edition
I read this novella with some trepidation as it seems to me a lot of the so-called gay romances don't represent reality; some are just too fluffy and pink. Tristram La Roche has hit the mark with this and I find it hard to imagine that it is a first work. The characters are true to life and I found myself rooting for Mark, the main character, from the start. I think a lot of us have known people like him. This short 'coming out' story has just the right balance of animal lust and love to make it a winner with male and female readers. I'll be buying future works from this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars Definitely Worth Reading June 11, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Tristram La Roche has taken the well-known theme of man finally finding his true-self and has woven a believable tale around it with enjoyable and professionally written story-telling. There's not a superfluous word anywhere.

This is a sweet but hot "coming out" novella that manages to convey both anguish and delight in a fairly short work. His characters are so touching and realistic that they left me wondering with concern what their futures held. I have a feeling we might see more of at least one of them (Justin comes to mind) since he piqued my imagination as soon as he made his appearance. For those who enjoy their sex-scenes hot (and I needed the air-conditioning on full blast), then this won't disappoint, yet this aspect was not in the least gratuitous and was handled with aplomb and skill. I give full marks to Tristram and look forward to reading what he has to offer in the future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Debut Novel October 8, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
An excellent debut novel. Written from the heart and a different take on m/m romance. A lovely mid-life coming out story.
