Bran Foxwell has crushed on Joel Fisher from afar for years, and now that Joel is happily in love with another guy, Bran has lost his chance. But when uber-sexy Keenan Pratt stumbles over an upset Bran, it’s the perfect opportunity for a no-strings hookup. Except sex with Keenan is hotter and more intense than Bran ever imagined, and despite their no-strings agreement, both men agree to an actual date.
As the middle triplet, Keenan Pratt is devoted to his brothers and they’ve spent the last ten years supporting and protecting each other. When Keenan has the chance to screw around with his own long-time crush Bran, it’s an itch he can’t wait to scratch. But there’s chemistry there neither of them expects and, slowly but surely, what should have been a single hookup turns into more.
But when their family is targeted, the Pratt brothers circle the wagons hard, and Keenan pulls away from Bran exactly when he should be leaning on the other man. Bran wants to be there for Keenan, but old habits run deep and if Keenan can’t learn to trust, he risks losing the best relationship he’s ever had.
Welcome to Neighborhood Shindig, a friendly place where you can snack on a lamb kebab while getting your hair done, pick up your favorite herbal tea blend, and then go listen to live music under the pavilion. We’re happy to have you.
These books are so fun. They are meant to be read in order, so definitely do that if you haven’t read book 1.
Book 2 brings us the story of Bran- who formerly crushed on Joel (book 1) and Kennan, one of the Pratt triplets-who has been crushing on Bran.
They start off with a quick and dirty one off behind one of the food trucks late one night. Poor Keenan wants more but won’t ask. Bran doesn’t think he wants more, but really he does. They kind of fall into a tentative relationship.
What was so fun about this one is that there were so many other characters in their lives who didn’t take a back seat. We learn more about all 3 Pratt brothers. not only as a family, but one of the other brothers also starts a relationship. So this is almost a two for one romance story.
Keenan and Bran also go out and do stuff. Like a regular couple! Except “as friends” at first. That quickly gets put aside though.
Of course the sex scenes are hot- sweet zombie jesus that first one behind the food truck. Dayum. But they are also very real as a couple. They only have one day off together. They both work their butts off. No one demands more time or attention. They are just two guys who fall in love.
These books are super fun. They are quick reads at about 150 pages each. Book 3 is coming soon (yay!) and there are more after that. I think after they are all out I will go back and do a reread of them all one after the other. Because they really are a continuing story.
