Exes With Benefits (Love Games #1)
by Peter Styles
Leo doesn’t kiss him. He is on fire, though, which is a good look. Austin can almost imagine he can see past the man’s gaze, into his mind and the things he’s thinking. The hand on his shoulder feels hot as a brand.
“Tonight?” The single word sounds as if it takes a great effort to say.
They say artists are passionate. They feel more, they want more… and they hurt more.
Austin Key is a working hard to become a star animator. A college graduate working freelance, he has a passion for his work and a dedication to doing things the right way – even when it comes to the one-night stands he picks up in college bars across the city. Feeling a bit directionless and alone since graduation, Austin is desperate to land a steady job, searching for a chance to start over… when an ex unexpectedly enters the picture.
Leo Lockhart didn’t mean to return to his college town. In this city, he had been branded a playboy and a heartbreaker, even though all he truly wanted was to find something real. Running out of rent money and time, he runs into Austin and decides that once and for all, he’s going to make things right.
Austin had promised himself not to ever let Leo back into his life again, but Leo isn’t the same guy that broke his heart in college. He seems to know exactly when Austin is feeling vulnerable or unsure. He gives Austin the space he needs, no questions asked, and is somehow always there to put him at ease with his quick wit and smile. Somehow, despite their painful history, they seem to just work.
It’s not long before Austin and Leo are drawn too close to each other, ending up in bed after a night out drinking. The old flame is fanned into a fire – until Austin wakes up sober, terrified of what he’s done. He proposes a truce: a relationship without feelings. Nights only. The only problem is, Austin isn’t sure he can keep it that way.
With their history dangling over their heads, their relationship complicates further as a former classmate gets involved. As their time together begins to draw to a close, one of them might have to do something drastic – before they lose their chance forever.
This 77,000-word gay love story will leave MM romance fans breathless as two men reacquaint with one another in every way possible. Steamy, sensual bedroom action makes this gay novel suitable for adults only.
