Bestselling authors Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy return with their first Male / Male romance in 3 years.


LobsterShorts, 21Jock. Secretly a science geek. Hot AF.

LobsterShorts: So. Here goes. For her birthday, my girlfriend wants…a threesome.

SinnerThree: Then you’ve come to the right hookup app.

LobsterShorts: Have you done this sort of thing before? With another guy?

SinnerThree: All the time. I'm an equal opportunity player. You?

LobsterShorts: [crickets!]

SinnerThree, 21Finance major. Secretly a male dancer. Hot AF.

SinnerThree: Well, I’m down if you are. My life is kind of a mess right now. School, work, family stress. Oh, and I live next door to the most annoying dude in the world. I need the distraction. Are you sure you want this?

LobsterShorts: I might want it a little more than I’m willing to admit.

SinnerThree: Hey, nothing wrong with pushing your boundaries...

LobsterShorts: Tell that to my control-freak father. Anyway. What if this threesome is awkward?

SinnerThree: Then it’s awkward. It’s not like we’ll ever have to see each other again. Right? Just promise you won’t fall in love with me.

LobsterShorts: Now wouldn’t that be life-changing...

Q&A about Top Secret:

Q: Have we met these characters before in another book?A: No! These guys are brand new, and we can’t wait for you to meet them.

Q: Is this story MM? Or is it a MMF / MFM / menage?A: This book is MM.

Q: Is this a love triangle story?A: Not really. You’ll see.

“I’m just a guy, standing on a beach in nothing but his favorite pair of lobster shorts, waiting for the right man to love me.” 

 

Review:

I have read several things from both of these authors, but together it’s a different kind of wonderful. I loved their last M/M book(s) and this was just as amazing.

“He said I was stingy with love, and he was right. I am really not sure that will ever change. But if there’s anyone in the world I could change for, it’s certainly him.”

This has a different and lighter feel to it compared to their last M/M duet. The book was funny, sweet, and so full of swoon. SO. MUCH. SWOON. I loved the secondary characters as much as I loved Keaton and Luke. They were great and I wouldn’t be mad if we got books from them.

Keaton and Luke had a ton of chemistry. It leaped off the pages! They were so different but yet when they were together it was so meant to be. I couldn’t even pick which one I liked more because I just adore both of these guys.

I am hoping for more from this “world”. Sarina and Elle can keep writing together and I will eat it up every time.

“What was I ever thinking? I need this man. And even if being half a couple doesn’t come easily to me, I have to try. Nobody has ever gotten under my skin the way he does. Nobody has ever needed me the way he does.
Not one person.
It’s terrifying.”
