Dex Crawford is the fixer, the one his friends turn to when there is a problem, the one who always has a solution. But his friends are barely there for him, and when they forget his fortieth birthday, Dex decides to drink away his disappointment.
That’s how he ends up in bed with Luke, who hasn’t had a one-night stand in years but is ready to settle down for life.
Dex: Happiness is overrated, and I don’t need a man to complete me. Finding someone who has my back and takes care of me is optional, and Luke is not an option. The way I see it, he’s only a complication.
Luke: One-night stand? No thanks. Friends-with-benefits relationship? Tricky, especially with an insanely hot, three-piece-suit, uptight, grumpy man who lights up around me. If opposites attract, Dex and I collide.
RELEASE DATE: August 2, 2019
Neither Dex nor I are making the first move. It’s battle of wills. Who will give up first and ravage the other?-Luke
Because even if I can’t be the love of his life, I can’t bring myself to walk away from mine.

Not my first read by author & I have read both Book 1 & 2 in the series, although this one is a M/M just so you know! I don’t get to read a lot of them so I get excited to, I like the different and so this was perfect for it.
When Dex finds himself alone at the bar on his 40th birthday which everyone seems to have forgotten, he wakes up feeling great aside from the hang-over but what happens next is crazy…he get’s to his office [yes he is the stuffy CEO dudes] and finds himself a cake that says: Don’t ignore me, I sucked your dick. Well, not having any recollection of what had happened last night, Dex panics.
Luke is well a big, tatted and bearded sexy man, who is CARE-FREE to opposite of Dex in all the ways! When Dex finds out about the cake, Luke has a little fun with him, and pushes his buttons. It’s a very interesting duo between these two, there is romance but it’s more of two grown adult alpha sexy men coming together, you know! There is jealousy, action, heartbreak and just LOT’S HAPPENING, it’s great!
I do have mixed feelings about this because it’s well written I just personally wasn’t feeling it. All the characters and even from the past, there was a lot going on but simple enough not to get lost or confused, definitely would read the previous books though. I just, I think from not reading these kinds for a while then jumping in, I expected something else and therefore couldn’t connect to the book well enough, although Luke if I had to pick was my absolute favorite! Again, very well written no doubt and for a M/M i haven’t read for a while i did enjoy it very much.
