It’s all fun and games until egos get hurt.
After a year of a seemingly happily-ever-after, Troy Babilonia throws a curve ball that smacks Larson Blackburn right in the head. When Troy’s debut novel, “Bridge to Lonely,” threatens to overshadow Larson’s own success, inviting a past shadow into the light of their present, the two alphas must learn to adjust.
“Bridge to Lonely” has garnered an unexpected success both in the literary world and in the film industry, forcing Larson to accept that he is not the only successful author in the building. But as Troy’s old flame decides to make an appearance, the two alphas are forced to test the strength of their love. Let the battle of the egos recommence; where sarcasm is the preferred weapon, and the testosterone levels go beyond the boiling point.
Hard Edit is the continuation of Troy and Larson’s stories. Troy is still writing his unique reviews and Larson is still writing his erotic/suspense novels. They are both dominate men that somehow always seem to make it work. Both men are tough on each other and everyone around them.
In this sequel of Back Balled we get to learn more about each man and they way they think. I really got a sense of their insecurities within their own relationship especially when their ex’s show up. Thank goodness they have neighbors around them that want to see them succeed.
Troy just finished his own book and now Larson is helping to guide him in the world or promoting and selling his book. Troy is not the easiest to guide and Larson isn’t the most laid-back teacher. When they have pushed each other too much they find themselves communicating the best way they know how by having sex.
This story is told with alternating POV, which was distracting at times. Their story had a reality base to it. Neither Troy or Larson were perfect. It took their busy body neighbors to make sure their relationship did not fall apart. There was a touching scene after Troy’s mother left that truly pull at my heart. These two were interesting to follow and now they have an even more interesting future.
