Blurb

Jagger’s the son of a bookmaker and fixer. Now, he’s the owner of an exclusive, underground club…and he’s also been put in charge of the family business.

Preston’s the son of a wealthy, powerful, blue-blood Boston family…or he was, until he was disowned for choosing his friendship with Jagger over his family. Ten years later, he’s a Special Forces Operator—and he’s still best friends with Jagger.

But things are about to change, for both men. Because after a long year of no contact, Preston’s coming home to Jagger for the first time since they shared a surprising kiss.

One night, one poker game, and one hand finds Jagger lucky—and skilled enough—to win a chance to fix things with Preston. But what’s at stake is far more than their friendship—it’s everything…and both men are all in to fight for what’s theirs.

Excerpt

Finally, Preston crumpled the wrapper from his burger and said, “An FBI agent came to my hotel tonight.”

Jagger’s jaw tightened, but he refused to look at Preston. “That didn’t take long. Sorry.”

“I wasn’t sleeping before that happened anyway.” Preston tried to make light of it. But Jagger’s family business always hung between them, an invisible barrier. A shield. Something Jagger needed to protect Preston from.

“You could’ve used the time to catch up on all the correspondence you missed.”

“I keep up just fine.”

“Not with me.”

“I read and listened to all your messages,” Preston corrected, trying to ignore Jagger’s accusing tone.

“You just didn’t acknowledge or answer them.”

Because I didn’t know how to say what I needed. But instead of telling Jagger that, he shot back, “You said you weren’t coming alone.”

“You told me not to. I didn’t answer. And I see you’re still good at changing the subject.”

“You’re determined to start a fight. I figured I’d choose the topic.”

When Jagger murmured, “Asshole,” Preston finally felt like they were back on even ground.

“You need to know that, no matter what, I’ll do time before I let him—or any of them—touch you or your family,” Preston growled.

“I’d walk into the station and surrender myself before I let that happen. They’ve got nothing.”

“I know it’s all bullshit. I can deal with it.”

“You shouldn’t have to.” Jagger’s hand went to his shoulder. “Did he touch you?”

“No,” Preston said quickly, swore his cheekbone throbbed.

As if reading his mind, Jagger ran a fingertip along the barely-there—and forever reminder of their bond—scar. “That’s the day I knew.”

“Knew what?”

“That we were ride or die.”

An absolute triumph for the third Heart2Heart charity anthology

CoverHeart2Heart: A Charity Anthology, Volume 3 by Annabeth Albert May Archer Mary Calmes Charlie Cochet Eden Finley Susan Hawke Sloane Kennedy Lucy Lennox Lily Morton K.M. Neuhold Nora Phoenix Layla Reyne  Piper Scott
Damon Suede Hailey Turner & Aimee Nicole Walker

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

After the slight disappointment with the second volume of this charity fund-raising anthology, I have to say I was apprehensive going into this one.

But, it’s an absolute triumph and, imho, even better than the brilliant first volume in the series.

Sixteen top-quality short stories which, while they mostly only really concentrate on the initial “meet/cute” part of the romances, still manage to give the reader a fully fleshed out story full of feels.

My favourites were those by:

Lily Morton (who else), although she surprised me with an incandescently hot opening sentence and a truly sweet romance between two very different men. I believe she plans to expand a bit and release the story later and I can’t wait to find out more about Simeon (who we met in Milo’s book) and Ziggy.

May Archer who gave me a really interesting pairing of complete opposites who find out that actually home might be found in the most unlikely of settings.

Piper Scott writing as Emma Alcott This one really was just a gorgeous romance between two men who really didn’t fit into the stereotypes their appearances had made them inhabit. Utterly sweet, quietly steamy, also has an extended sort of epilogue with them still being uber happy.

Layla Reyne We get Greg’s story, Miller’s best friend from Dine with Me and it’s everything I’d hoped it would be and bonus points for the drinks recipes!

I’ve picked these as highlights but it’s fair to say I enjoyed every single story in this anthology this time round, there wasn’t one I felt was left hanging or hadn’t been developed enough. There’s pretty much something for everyone here with friends to lovers, bisexual awakenings, opposites attract, fake boyfriends and the rest.

Congratulations to everyone involved in this brilliant fund-raiser, especially Leslie Copeland for all the author wrangling.

Excerpt

Less than twelve hours after sleeping next to Jagger in his bed, Preston sat next to him at Rúnda’s bar watching him get half mauled by another guy.

Jagger was bi and a Dom, so it’s not like he minded it, and hell, this was a BDSM club, where hookups were pretty much guaranteed. Men like the younger one pawing at Jagger were carefully accepted into the club on a trial basis as guests of members before being allowed to come in on their own. And Preston was straight, and none of this had ever been a problem for him before.

But it was most definitely bothering him now—the way it had bothered him last time he’d been here.

It wasn’t just about this guy—it was everything. The memories of the kiss. This whole club. It was Jagger. And what the hell was he supposed to do with a sudden, inexplicable, undeniable sexual pull toward his best friend?

How about not kissing him and then running, for starters. Or trying to pretend that watching gay porn for the last year and jerking off to Jagger hadn’t been happening?

He told himself to shut up.

This guy perving on Jagger didn’t look like some kind of exclusive member. Preston was in charge of security, so it wouldn’t be too extra if he ran a background check. Immediately. In fact, he was trying to figure out a way to quietly pocket the man’s glass so he could run his prints, at the very least, when Jagger slid a shot in front of him.

“Have a drink, Pres.” Jagger’s voice sounded rough, and he winked before turning back to his conquest.

He knew what Preston was thinking—about the fingerprints, and, for all Preston knew, about everything. The air had changed between them, the current charged. But Jagger had left the ball solidly in Preston’s court, never more so than with this last shot.

Jagger had always been kinky—Preston knew that. He’d watched Jagger pick up men in various clubs, and he’d listened through thin walls when Jagger had company. Harnesses, cuffs, dildos…those were always lying around Jagger’s place, and Jagger was always encouraging him to find someone to try them out with.

“New horizons,” Jagger had suggested.

Preston recalled shaking his head. “I don’t need all this to get laid.”

“Dude, you have no idea what you’re missing.”

And Preston hadn’t…until he’d accidentally walked into a dungeon room exhibition, starring Jagger. In leather pants which left nothing to the imagination, tattoos on full display, and enough sexual prowess to make everyone observing want him.

It was one thing to hear Jagger talk about his sessions, see the sex toys in his bedroom, but it was quite another to witness the public goings-on in the private space. Thinking about what else happened when a man or woman was led from the floor into one of the dungeon rooms was what had gotten Preston into this trouble in the first place.

Because being around it had turned Preston on, something he hadn’t wanted to admit. Turned him on to Jagger, for Christ’s sake. If he’d found himself attracted to a random club guy, it probably wouldn’t have bothered him so much.

But watching Jagger be attracted to a random club guy? Annoying as fuck.
