If “I love you” is a lie, why does it feel so much like the truth?

Stuck at a co-workers retirement party, Max prepares himself for a long, boring night—until a guy across the bar with an intense brown gaze and a dangerous smirk offers some mutual gratification in the bathroom. Max had been looking for a forever love, but Karson’s so hot, forever can wait.

Ever since his cheating ex broke his heart, Karson’s had rules. Only pleasure. Never more than once. Never stay the night. Yet long after their romp in the bar bathroom, Karson still wants Max—maybe enough to break his own rules.

As Max and Karson struggle to sort out their complicated non-relationship, Karson’s ex resurfaces in full win-him-back mode. One white lie later, Max attends Karson’s tenth annual high-school reunion as his “boyfriend” to keep his ex away. But pretending is hard, when all Max wants is for the lie to be the truth.

Warning: Contains a slew of misunderstandings, one cheating, jealous ex, and steamy sex scenes between two guys who fall accidentally in love.

Not My Boyfriend is the type of book you pick up when you want a fast-paced story with a ton of angst, hot sex, and a sweet ending. In terms of plot, this isn’t War and Peace, but then again, we don’t want it to be.

Max and Karson meet in a bar. Max is looking for Mr. Right, Karson is looking for Mr. Right Now and Only For Now. The rules are clear, and both men agree to them.
“One night,” Karson whispered against Max’s lips. “No regrets.” 
Max, mouth slack, ready and willing for many more kisses, nodded. “No regrets.”
Karson was a fling. A really hot, ridiculously good-kissing fling. Of course Max wasn’t his first. Wouldn’t be his last either. 
But that didn’t mean Max was going to sit back and let himself be another notch on anyone’s bedpost. If he was going to be a notch, he was going to be the biggest, most memorable notch on the line.
But their chemistry is off the charts and neither can resist the lure of a do-over. And that’s when the trouble starts.
Cursing, Karson covered his face with his hands. He was a fuck-and-forget kind of guy. This remembering—this longing—had never happened to him before.
Karson was trouble; he seemed to like slow, touchy sex that unraveled Max to his core and rebuilt him again in pleasure.
When Max attends Karson’s high school reunion as his boyfriend, they both know they are putting on a show, but everything feels all too real. Emotions run high in this story and both guys try to sort out their feelings. They know the other isn’t what they need, but is everything they want.

As expected, the I love you’s come, and when they do, the moment is honest, sweet, and very satisfying.

If you enjoy angsty, fast-paced stories with steamy, emotional sex and sweet romance, this is the book for you!

Our Review: 4 stars!
