*Pre-order the uplifting new novel from Matt Cain*

'Matt's books just keep getting better and better and One Love is rich, funny, poignant and unflinchingly honest portrayal of friendship, love and everything in between' Ruth Hogan


Danny arrives at Manchester University determined not to hide from the world any longer. This is the year his life will begin.

He locks eyes with a handsome stranger across the hall at the Freshers' Fair. It starts with a wink and soon Danny and Guy are best friends.


Now, both single for the first time in years, Danny and Guy return to the confetti-covered streets of the Gay Village for Manchester Pride.

After years of shared adventures and lost dreams, Danny finally plans to share the secret he has been keeping for two decades. He has always been in love with Guy.

Could this weekend be the end of a twenty-year friendship . . . or the start of something new and even more beautiful?

'Utterly absorbing and affecting. Matt Cain is one of the most entertaining and illuminating writers out there' Bryony Gordon
