Rylan and Gage are best friends, lovers, and bandmates, but what happens if one of them wants something more? If one important aspect of their lives changes, can they still be all that they are to each other or is the risk far too great to even consider? This is the first in the Glitter Fox series.
The story starts right off with rough and tumble bandmates Rylan and Gage fighting for supremacy in the bedroom after their show. It also turns out it’s Rylan’s birthday, and at the ripe old age of 35 he’s starting to take stock of his life and is starting to think that maybe nameless faceless encounters and threesomes with Gage aren’t quite his thing anymore. He’s hoping to spend his birthday with just the two of them, when Gage brings in his birthday surprise. A young band follower whom Gage assumes is there to be a third, and he gets royally ticked off and storms out.
He eventually goes back and they talk it out and it seems maybe Rylan’s not the only one feeling that way, and the kid (was only 17 which made Rylan even angrier) was not there for a threesome, but to deliver a special birthday gift. If you like your sex rough and manly, for lack of a better word, this is the story for you. Men who don’t mind drawing blood as they battle for supremacy in the bedroom. I did find I was a bit confused as to the role of the kid who precipitated the discussion. I wasn’t sure why he would be there, given what his role was. You’d think a hotel staff could have done that, and there would have been no confusion. So it seemed a bit contrived to cause the conflict to me.
