The first book in a 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.
I’ve read my fair share of m/m books but Fierce & Fabulous is the first Iv read that’s so shiny, sparkly and full of rainbows.
Ansel is an out and proud gay man who can walk with the best of them in killer heels, knows how to apply makeup better the 90% of the female population and loves sparkly bright clothing and accessories and he will not apologise for it. Oh and can dance his cute a*#e off in said heels. I’ve decided I need Ansel as my best friend, yep done deal. We all need his sunshine and rainbows in our lives.
There is so much depth to Ansel that you feel like he’s a part of you. You want to reach out and hug him but slap him silly too. His history has shaped who he has become, he has some bad destructive behaviours that formed from his struggles but also a sheer strength, determination and confidence come from his history too. So what’s he gonna do about it? Shake it till he makes it.
Fitch is a typical straight guy living his life with unfulfilling relationships and just coasting along. But that all changed when the blond who can move like sin and has legs that go on forever sets his heart racing turns around and struts “I’m a guy but I look hot in lace”.
Together this unlikely couple burn up the sheets. Experience a lot of firsts together, wade through emotions, darkness and come out the others side in a pink shirt with a funny slogan splashed across it.
I like how Fitch’s parents initial reaction isn’t pleasant, while its not nasty and horrible it’s not puppies and rainbows either. But they’re given time to process and how they handle it all and treat Ansel is commendable. A bomb like what Fitch dropped would be a shock. To be so accepting is amazing, to open their home to Ansel and accept him as he is for their son is beautiful.
I can not recommend this book enough. The m/m genre is substantial these days but this gem, it needs to be up there with the most popular because it deserves to shine. Absolutely amazing story.
