When Bailey’s new boss turns out to be his childhood bully, a.k.a. Jake the Jerk, it’s time to call in backup for the upcoming corporate retreat in Vegas. Too bad Bailey works too much to date. His best option is to ask his very straight roommate to play the part of temporary boyfriend, even if Gordo is better with pythons than he is with people.
Except Bailey and Gordo haven’t even checked into the hotel and Jake the Jerk is already everywhere. The pressure is on for Bailey to prove he deserves to climb the corporate ladder, but it’s hard to talk shop as Gordo goes from backup to an increasingly attractive distraction.
Bailey’s trying to keep his cool, schmooze the executives and stick to the plan, even though Gordo’s not playing by any of the rules. They’ve always been just friends, but maybe it’s time to be boyfriends…with full benefits.
Boyfriend with Benefits is a 37k contemporary MM romance novella. It features fake boyfriends who might not be so fake, a hotel room with only one bed, and a James Bond moment in a tiny blue bathing suit. HEA guaranteed.
This was such a fun, sweet, sexy book. One of my favorite romance tropes is friends to lovers, and this was a great example of that.
These two were living together, as roommates, for a few years. Gordo was honestly kind of a nerd, but with a huge heart of gold, especially for animals. He may have been kind of quiet, but really said a lot when he did speak. Also, he could have easily grew to NOT like Bailey as they got to Vegas, with all of Bailey’s issues with his clothing, etc, but Gordo just went along with it.
Bailey was a hot mess, and who could blame him? He was doing well at his job, even if you could tell he didn’t love it, and along comes the tormentor of his youth to basically become his boss. This trip was not anything to look forward to, but it definitely was something that changed both Gordo and Bailey’s lives…and Jake the Jerk’s. 🙂
There are a couple big secrets revealed along the way, but of course, as always we get our HEA. Totally worth it.
Definitely give this one a read!
