(My brother, Jamie, finally got to marry his lifelong best friend, BJ, this weekend. I was Jamie’s best man, and Scott was BJ’s best man. Not an ideal situation for either of us, since Scott and I have been enemies since high school. Somehow we managed to get through the weeks before the wedding without killing each other (barely), but then the bachelor party incident occurred and added fuel to the fire.
Now we argue even more, and the sexual tension between us is unbearable, at least for me. Unfortunately, I have things I like— kinky things— that Scott would never be able to handle, probably because he’s not even gay. Or at least that’s what I always thought, but now I’m not so sure and apparently neither is he…

Manties & Mayhem! 💜🌈💚
I have had this lucious lil novey in my library for ages. Could smack myself for waiting so long to read it. The GFY/OFY trope has def become one of my faves lately. 💋
Scott and Rylan were great!!! 💖👬💖
“Nothing’s pathetic about love, Ry. We can’t help who we love, we don’t get to choose, our heart chooses for us.”
I loved these guys had history, that they could be called sort of frenemies.
I loved that they had close family ties (their brothers were married).💞
I loved that each MC had depth and brought so many character traits to the table there was never any confusing one character for the other (Believe me this is a serious problem in some MM romances) or feeling bored with either character.
“I’m not saying I’m gay or straight or even bi. I don’t know what my feelings for you make me. I don’t like labels, but I like you.”
I loved the pacing. The book was easy to read, and had good flow.
I loved all the silliness from the “horns & heels” stag party, to the seriousness of the drunken confession. 💕
The entire story was a delight to read from beginning to end.
If you love a good MM Romance with a lot of snark, heart, and sMMexxy good times, this is definitely one you should read. 💋
