M/M Romance Review - Pride Month

Maddox

The reason I rarely go home is three simple words: I’m a liar.

When the pressure to marry my childhood sweetheart became too much, I told her I was gay and then fled to New York like my ass was on fire.

Now, five years later and after a drunken encounter, I find myself invited to her wedding. And I have to bring my boyfriend—the boyfriend who doesn’t exist because I’m straight.

At least, I think I am. Meeting the guy I’m bribing to be my boyfriend for the weekend makes me question everything about myself.







Damon

When my sister asks me to pretend to be some straight guy’s boyfriend, my automatic response is to say no. It’s because of guys like him people don’t believe me when I tell them I’m gay.

But Maddox has something I need.

After an injury that cost me my baseball career, I’m trying to leave my playing days behind and focus on being the best sports agent I can be. Forty-eight hours with my sister’s best friend in exchange for a meeting with a possible client. I can do this.

I just wish he wasn’t so hot. Or that he didn’t kiss like he means it.

Wait … why is the straight guy kissing me?

Mini Book Breakdown

Maddox lied to the whole small town that he was gay when it came time to break up with his long term girlfriend because he has commitment issues. But as fate would have it, he runs into his ex who is now getting married to someone else and he agrees to go to her wedding. But now he needs a date... and his best friend offers up her gay brother.

Enter Damon, a man who was so close to being a baseball star till his career was ripped away from him within the blink of an eye. He agrees to be Maddox's date to the wedding. They both think they'll go their own way when it's all over but fake has other plans.

I'm in the mood for m/m romances and Pride Month is coming so it's extra fitting! This was just what I wanted! It had characters I loved that weren't perfect but they came together anyway in the best way. The writing is great and the pace was just right! Plus, I love the 'fake boyfriend' trope so freaking much!
