"I don't do relationships, I break them." ~ Troy
If there’s one thing life has taught me it’s that everyone eventually leaves. But that's okay because I have a strategy: no friends, no boyfriends, limit repeat hook-ups, no sleep overs, and above all leave them before they leave me. I’ve put my break-up skills to work doing others’ dirty work for them.
The last thing I expected when I agreed to do an embarrassing breakup song and dance was to end up on the doorstep of the very recognizable—and stupidly sexy—Rebel. When you meet a man like Rebel you'd be insane not to make a move. And just because he has me tossing out every single one of my rules doesn't mean I'm in trouble, right?
“I’m everyone’s friend, but no one’s everything.” ~ Rebel
I love working for Ballsy Boys, but when you make the kind of videos I do relationships are pretty damn impossible. Besides, guys find me sexy and want to either be with me or be me, but no one has ever cared enough to see the real me.
Until I meet Troy. He has no problem whatsoever with my job, but he’s determined to keep me at a distance. For the first time, a hook-up alone is not enough. I want more with him. Hell, I want everything. But he resists at every step until I’m about ready to give up. What do I need to do to show him that this is real and worth fighting for?
***Rebel is the first book in the Ballsy Boys Series and is a super sexy MM romance with plenty of good times. While this book and this series do contain some instances of sex outside of the main relationships, they DO NOT contain cheating.
WOW, this book was soooo much more than I'd honestly expected.
First off, IT WAS FREAKING FILTHY.
Dirty, dirty, duuuuuurty in the steam department.
Am I complaining? Well... no. It is a story about gay porn stars, FFS. hehe
As the story began, I really wasn't sure if this was just going to be porn with the slimmest margin of plot. That was certainly how it felt toward the beginning.
Then things changed. And there were feels. Lots of really good ones, all while keeping the angst to manageable levels.
Somehow, in the middle of the butt-load of sex (pun slightly intended), these two "not-looking-for-ANYTHING-serious" guys bonded, without even completely realizing it, which was a thing of beauty to witness.
I adored seeing Troy start to open up, not only to Hendrix (aka 'Rebel'), but also to Mason, his first true friend, despite his best efforts to push people away to avoid the pain of rejection.
I also loved how, once Troy and Hendrix were together, that wasn't really the end of the story. From there, Hendrix helped Troy begin to overcome his underlying issues of rejection.
Bottom line is that I wasn't expecting much more than a porny, fun dick-fest, but got a whole lot more than that, so I'd rate this one at around 4.25 stars and definitely recommend it.
** Note to authors:
Please, for the love of God, stop repeatedly describing Pixie as an "imp" over and over and over and motherfucking over again. It got super old, super quick.
Also, "releasing a breath he didn't even know he was holding"... Waaaaay 4 years ago and overused, even way back then.
