BLURB :

Nightclub owner Marcus Feldman never met a man he didn’t love, at least for the night. Although his best friends have all found love, Marcus shuns their advice to commit to one man and settle down. His past has taught him monogamy and marriage is for fools, and Marcus is anything but a fool.

Tyler Reiss’s dream of dancing professionally is unexpectedly cut short and replaced by a different kind of love. He trades in his ballet slippers for go go boots, and spends his nights dancing at the hottest gay club in the city. Flirting with the customers for tips is easy, but resisting the dark and sexy Marcus is becoming harder to do with each passing day.

Unforeseen circumstances bring Marcus and Tyler closer and though they give in to their mutual passion, both still struggle to guard their hearts. When crises threaten, Tyler and Marcus find their strength in each other rather than falling apart. Tyler must choose to either run, or stay and fight for the life he wants, while Marcus realizes that love doesn’t mean losing himself and opens his heart, making him a better man in the end.

EXCERPT



“This wasn’t a permanent arrangement; you knew that.” Tyler leaned against the wall. “I can’t impose on you any longer. I’m sure you want your bedroom and your life back.”

“I didn’t mind it last night.” He walked over to Tyler and placed a hand on his neck, stroking him. This he could do. He had no qualms about seducing Tyler to stay with him. The troubling reason why he wanted him there so badly, Marcus pushed to the side for now. Instead, he pulled Tyler close, settling their hips in line, and his cock thickened in his pants. “I’d tell you if I did. Please, come with me to brunch, and we can talk.”

Doubt clouded Tyler’s eyes. “I don’t belong there. Those are your friends, the people you’re closest with.”

“I had my dick inside you twice last night, Tyler. How much closer could we get?”

It took Marcus many minutes of deep, persuasive kisses to rid Tyler of his confusion. When he pulled away though, the ground under his feet reeled, and Marcus needed a moment to compose himself.

They remained standing close; Tyler’s hands rested on his shoulders while he clasped Tyler around his hips. He nuzzled Tyler’s ear, then pleaded with him.

“Come on; you have to help me out here. They’re all coupled up, and the last thing I want is to listen to them be all disgustingly loving and happy.”

An amused glint lit Taylor’s eyes. “And you hate that, huh?”

“Bet that sweet ass of yours I do.” He gave Tyler’s ass a squeeze for effect, and the light in Tyler’s eyes smoldered.

“If you want me to come, you’d better get your hands off my ass.”

Marcus’s lips curved up in a grin as he popped open the button of Tyler’s jeans and drew them down.

“I definitely want you to come; in every way possible,” he said, and sank to his knees, uncaring of how late he might be to meet Zach and Julian.




REVIEW 

~ 5 amazing dancing stars ! ~

"Love was inescapable, indefinable, and sometimes ill-advised. It took you by the throat and shook you until your brain rattled, yet just as gently, cradled you in its loving arms."



Loved this book so hard ! Loved Marcus and Tyler even more!
And they're become my new favorite couple along with my Micah and Josh.
Another winner from Felice Stevens !

Once upon a time, I was stumble to a new book from a new author in MM. Book called Rescued . It was a good book and after that, I stalked the author's every new book. None of her book I haven't read. I read all of Felice's stories, because I loved all of her MCs.
Some people might now know her, yet. But I believe I have a good taste in books, so, it's your lost if you haven't read Felice's books.
(I'm trying not to sound like an ass-licker here, but seriously, if Felice keeping up with her writing style I love, I'll follow her everywhere). Enough.
Now about the book.

Right from the start with Julian and Nick's book, I was already half in love with that slutty Marcus. Hell, I never like a slutty heroes before, but Marcus dug my curiosity and I keep wondering who can tame him in the future.
Funny how faith drive us. We're looking everywhere to our soulmates, and never realised that he's right there close to us. Like Marcus when he found Tyler, a new dancer in his new club.
But Tyler is not an easy target, he's not even Marcus's one night only type.
First encounter was a fist (yeah, seemed like Marcus has a thing with a little jab on his jaw). Tyler got him right there.
"“You may be my boss and pay me , but that’s as far as it goes. I don’t have to like you, or put up with your crap like everyone else here does.”

Curiosity kill a cat. Nah, not for Marcus, he's determined like that. He wanted Tyler and he MUST have Tyler. But what's Tyler told him?
"“I don’t need your help, and no, we won’t get to know each other better. You’re my boss, and you pay me to work for you. That doesn’t include fucking me.”"

Ouch !

Marcus never wanted to fall in love. He didn't need it. As a child, he's lack of that. And he became a bitter man.
"“I didn’t want trips to places that weren’t for children or toys that were too expensive to play with. I wanted parents who wanted me.”"

"He didn’t know how to love anyone, not like his friends loved their partners. He’d seen Julian give himself to Nick and Zach to Sam so completely, and it scared the shit out of him to lose that control, to put someone else first."

And it's so hard for him to admit that he wanted Tyler. He didn't understand why.
"“Why are you here?”
“I have no fucking clue, but I have to find out.”
“Find out what?”
“I don’t know.”“Why you let other men touch and kiss you, but me you push away.” “Why it matters to me.”"

I'm glad Tyler didn't give up too soon for Marcus's undeniable charm, Marcus had to work hard for that, including prolonged his three months bet of celibacy to eight long months of no sex.
But it pays, because Tyler wanted him as much as he wanted Tyler. And Tyler make sure that 'everybody' knows about that!
"“I’m going to make certain that when you leave here tonight, there will be no doubt in anyone’s mind who you belong with from now on.”

As long as I know, there's only two dances that I found erotic AF. One, from my latest Lori Witt's book, and this one. Tyler is one hell of a hot dancer!

And there are also my other guys from the other series, my Micah and Josh !
Not just as cameo, they're helping Tyler and Marcus solved some of their life problems as well ! <3
And I I love how a man of no relationship, no need family like Marcus, falls head over heels over a little girl named Lillie. Aww !
Seriously, I don't care about Marcus's past hurts with his parents, as long as Tyler can make him whole.

"“I don’t want to leave because I need you.” He pressed a clumsy kiss to the corner of Marcus’s mouth. “I love you.” Marcus stilled and held Tyler a bit closer. “Do you know that’s the first time anyone’s ever said that to me?”"

IMHO, Felice is getting better and better with her writing. And I haven't let down even once.
Loved all the boys, and I'm sure there are many more to come . Bring it on Felice !

About the Author

 Felice Stevens has always been a romantic at heart. She believes that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending just around the corner. She started reading traditional historical romances when she was a teenager, then life and law school got in the way. It wasn’t until she picked up a copy of Bertrice Small and became swept away to Queen Elizabeth’s court that her interest in romance novels became renewed. But somewhere along the way, her tastes shifted. While she still enjoys a juicy Historical romance, she began experimenting with newer, more cutting edge genres and discovered the world of Male/Male romance. And once she picked up her first, she became so enamored of the authors, the character-driven stories and the overwhelming emotion of the books, she knew she wanted to write her own. Felice lives in New York City with her husband and two children and hopefully soon a cat of her own. Her day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass or two of red wine. She practices law but daydreams of a time when she can sit by a beach somewhere and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there is bound to be angst along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.
