About the Book:
Fans of Heidi Cullinan will devour this scorching new male/male series by Elizabeth Varlet. Behind the Sassy Boyz's seductive smiles and sinful dance moves are desires that will leave readers breathless.
Fitch Donovan never thought a lap dance could change his life, but from the moment the gorgeous dancer's lips touch his, his world comes screeching to a halt. No matter how hard he tries, he can't shake the desire that rocks him to his core. He's longed for this passion all his life—he just never dreamed he'd find it with another man.
Sharing a soul-shaking kiss with a straight boy is the kind of drama Ansel Becke just doesn't need. Spotlights aren't made for two and Ansel prefers to keep things on a one-night-only basis. So when Fitch shows up asking for an encore, Ansel knows he should send his gorgeous ass packing.
Though Ansel tries to pretend that what's between him and Fitch is far from fabulous, there's something about the big, burly contractor that makes Ansel's world sparkle in a way no amount of glitter ever could. And Fitch will do whatever it takes to convince Ansel that when the thing you need most in the world falls right into your lap, you'd be a fool to let it go.
Holy. Freaking. Hell.
Why didn’t I read this book sooner?
WHEN can I have the next one?
I must admit, my sole reason for requesting Fierce & Fabulous was sheer curiosity. I mean, how could a lap dance change a person’s whole freaking life? Impossible right? But it happened to Fitch and Ansel, and I must admit, it happened to me right along with them.
Reading Fierce & Fabulous is like dousing yourself in glitter and strutting around Central Park in sexy lingerie. It’s a meat market of amazing. M/M romance is not something I read often — if ever. But something about the blurb and hot males on the cover (you know that cover is exceptionally hot) left a bold, hungry taste in my mouth. The raw salivating kind. I needed to read it. I needed to know what transpired between those 246 pages. Thank my lustful heavens I wasn’t disappointed.
It starts blazing hot. Each page shifting between the unequivocal desires of a straight man and flamboyant personality of a broken dancer. I could not put this book down! Why would you want to? It’s been a while since I’ve read so much honest, real, passionate chemistry between two people that melted off the pages. Like I lit them ablaze myself and watched them burn slowly before my eyes.
Gods I laughed. It’s sexy sweet humor kept me on the edge of my seat, wanting to know more about the two men and where this forbidden passion would take them. It was worth every page. Worth the tingle in my toes. Worth the tingles everywhere. I really don’t stress over labels, titles and the such when it comes to sexuality and gender (people are people to me), so I’m not sure if Elizabeth Varlet handled all that correctly (I’m sure there’s a review somewhere on Goodreads with that info), but what I can say is — I didn’t care. What captivated me were the characters. Each with their own set of rules, values, and misconceptions about love and life. I found it all relatable in some way and enjoyed watching them figure each other out. Not knowing what could come of their bizarre connection. The complicated mess that connection makes.
It’s fierce and fabulous (all puns intended).
Overall, if you love your romance hot, edgy, wild, a bit complicated, and laced with sparkles of glitter, get this book. I highly recommend every 4.5 Controller word! Spoiler ALERT: You will not be sorry.
