PUBLISHER: Carina Press
LENGTH: 246 pages
RELEASE DATE: June 27th, 2016
The first book in a scorching new male/male series by Elizabeth Varlet. Behind the Sassy Boyz’s seductive smiles and sinful dance moves are desires that will leave readers breathless.
Fitch Donovan never thought a lap dance could change his life, but from the moment the gorgeous dancer’s lips touch his, his world comes screeching to a halt. No matter how hard he tries, he can’t shake the desire that rocks him to his core. He’s longed for this passion all his life—he just never dreamed he’d find it with another man.
Sharing a soul-shaking kiss with a straight boy is the kind of drama Ansel Becke just doesn’t need. Spotlights aren’t made for two and Ansel prefers to keep things on a one-night-only basis. So when Fitch shows up asking for an encore, Ansel knows he should send his gorgeous ass packing.
Though Ansel tries to pretend that what’s between him and Fitch is far from fabulous, there’s something about the big, burly contractor that makes Ansel’s world sparkle in a way no amount of glitter ever could. And Fitch will do whatever it takes to convince Ansel that when the thing you need most in the world falls right into your lap, you’d be a fool to let it go.
A fan of Yanis Marshall I could feel his inspiration throughout this story. Elizabeth Varlet is a “new to me” author and I have to confess I am a huge fan already. I adored this story so much. There are so many things that really worked in this story. It’s no surprise that I am a sucker for Gay For You/Only For You stories and this one is done really well. There was so much emotions between these characters and it was absolutely believable.
Ansel Becke hasn’t had an easy life. But he’s been able to pick himself up and dust himself off on more than one occasion. Now, things are going well for him. He has a job he enjoys dancing and performing with his best friends. What he’s not looking for is love.
Fitch Donovan has been straight his whole life, or so he thought. He doesn’t understand why the very male dancer is inspiring all kinds of conflicting emotions.
Fitch and Ansel can’t resist the attraction they have for one another. It was actually really beautiful watching these men fall in love. You absolutely want the very best for both of them and I loved them together.
Another aspect that I really loved were the side characters, especially the Sassy Boyz. I can’t wait to learn all of their stories. These characters were so well developed and thought out.
Overall, I really enjoyed this book. And I can’t wait for book 2 in the series…
