A load of my tropes all brought together in a delightful romance

Power plays saxon and eden FINALPower Plays & Straight A’s by Eden Finley & Saxon James

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Utterly delightful.

This book managed to hit quite a few of my favourite tropes in one go – brother’s best friend, sports romance, college age, virgin MC, opposites attract and jock/nerd – and it did it with panache.

I found myself massively rooting for Foster to finally get Zach to see he wasn’t just looking out for him because he was his twin’s best friend

 

and I loved the quirky obliviousness of Zach’s overly analytical nature.

There’s not really much I can fault with this one, it just spoke to me and hit all my buttons for a low angst, sweetly steamy new age romance.

Blurb

Las doesn’t date seasonal workers. Marco’s on a three-month contract.

Lassiter Windsor-March has been planning for his future for as long as he can remember and he knows exactly where that future lies: at his family’s ranch in Wyoming. What doesn’t lie in his future is a summer fling with one of the seasonal workers—they never stick around.

Even if one of those workers is the college crush he’s invited to work a summer job at the ranch.

Marco Terlizzese is as laissez-faire as Las isn’t. He might not know where he’ll be once his contract with Windsor Ranch is up, but he knows three months is plenty of time to get his long-time crush to agree to go out with him.

Amid a starry summer sky, their chemistry ignites as feelings deepen, forcing Las and Marco to decide where they truly belong.

Home for a Cowboy is a brand new novel from the author of the bestselling Stick Side series, Amy Aislin. This friends to lovers, new adult romance features:

An opposites attract romance

A small town in Wyoming

Stargazing

Sexy times in the hay

So much pining

A cowboy + a former college hockey player

A note from Amy

Home for a Cowboy is about giving love a chance and discovering where you belong.

Teaser

If he was honest with himself, Las was seventy-five percent of the reason Marco was here. An invitation to work at the Windsor Ranch wasn’t what he’d expected when he’d asked Las out on a date a couple of months ago on a cold April night. He wasn’t sure what he’d expected exactly, so Las’s rejection hadn’t come as a surprise so much as taken the wind out of Marco’s sails. But a firm no thank-you followed by a job offer?

It was out of left field but so what? After all of thirty seconds of weighing the pros and cons—the cons consisting mostly of having no idea what he’d do on a ranch, the pros consisting entirely of Las . . . okay, almost entirely. The rest was made up of nonexistent plans for after graduation—he’d agreed.

Maybe it’d turn out to be the stupidest decision he’d ever made given he’d never been on a ranch. Or near horses. Or cows. Or any large mammal, really.

But spending the summer with Las? Getting to know him better than their quick encounters at the small, outdoor coffee shop—the Coffee Cart—that Marco had worked at on campus had permitted? Maybe becoming something more than friends?

Sign him up.

Cover Art

Blurb

Orphan Jackson Murphy just staked his legacy on a bet.

Holy shit, his impulsive ass is in trouble.

Bring a guy to the fraternity formal? Pfft. Easy. Won’t be him getting kicked out of the house.

So what if his luck with guys on campus has been shitty? Ed Knowles is Jack’s winning ticket.

Tall, handsome, hardworking—and he doesn’t go to Harrison. One serendipitous meeting, and sparks—and coffee cups—are flying.

But with every stolen look, every secret kiss, every clandestine touch Ed becomes more than just an answer to a bet.

And these cloak-and-dagger meetings that set Jack on fire? They mask one tiny, enormous obstacle: Ed’s not out.

What does Jack do now?

Hold on to his legacy… or his heart?

Better Be Sure is a sweet, slow burn M/M romance with a heart-pounding HEA. This New Adult, college, opposite sides of the tracks novel can be read as a standalone and in any order.

 

Teaser

Before the kid could pass, someone bumped him hard enough to knock him off balance. Unprepared for the contact, he watched his much needed caffeine and sugar splatter over the floor.

“Oh fuck, sorry.”

Jack twisted around, a fire in his eye that cooled off instantly. Tall Hot Guy quickly shoved his phone in his pocket, looking totally cute as he gawked wide-eyed at the mess he’d caused. The flush of red to his cheeks had Jack staring. “It’s all right.”

“Oh man, I’m so sorry.” Casting about for a place to put his bag, Tall Hot Guy settled on the counter and started snapping up napkins by the handful. He bent over to spread them on the tiles, and the waistband of his dark blue boxers peeked above his jeans. Jack’s gaze lingered a moment.

About the Authors

Andy Gallo Head Shot

Andy Gallo prefers mountains over the beach, coffee over tea, and regardless if you shake it or stir it, he isn’t drinking a martini. He remembers his “good old days” as filled with mullets, disco music, too-short shorts, and too-high socks. Thanks to good shredders and a lack of social media, there is no proof he ever descended into any of those evils.

Andy does not write about personal experiences and no living or deceased ex-boyfriends appear on the pages of his stories. He might subconsciously infuse his characters with some of their less noble qualities, but that is entirely coincidental even if their names are the same. And while Andy leaves the hard sci-fi/fantasy for his alter ego, Andrew, in his mind a touch of the supernatural never derailed a good relationship.

Married and living his own happy every after, Andy helps others find their happy endings in the pages of his stories. He and his husband of more than twenty years spend their days raising their daughter and rubbing elbows with other parents. Embracing his status as the gay dad, Andy sometimes has to remind others that one does want a hint of color even when chasing after their child.
