Excerpt Only Tour: MM Synchronous Seduction by Havan Fellows (Excerpt, Giveaway + ARC Review)

Author Name: Havan Fellows
Book Name: Synchronous Seductions Trilogy
Release Date: July 20, 2015


Seven years ago one of them made a mistake.
That mistake will change six lives forever.

Ryder made a mistake Harlan can't forgive. Will Ryder cross a line no man should cross to obtain a second chance?

Ritchie won't admit he's heartbroken. Emery won't accept less than all of Ritchie's affection. How will arrogant Emery win snarky Ritchie for his own?

Fuzzy is an unsatisfied ladies' man. Geoff's a bear-loving man who satisfies. Problem? Convincing a straight man that satisfaction might be just around the bend.

Warning: This book is chocked full of domineering men who don’t like to take no for an answer. If arrogant alpha men make your heart beat faster and other places tingle, this is the book for you.

He glanced up and went to wipe the steam from the mirror, but stopped. Ryde still, no doubt, lingered in the bedroom so he couldn’t scream like he wanted to. He took his finger and wrote in cursive I will not love Ryder Halloway again. Juvenile? Yeah, but seeing it in writing fortified him. He watched as the steam cleared from the mirror, and his message went with it. Gone, but never forgotten.

Realizing his clothes were, of course, in his bedroom, he reopened the door. Yep, there Ryde still leaned against the doorjamb. Steadying himself, Harlan walked across the room. “I have to get dressed, so you can go wait for me in the kitchen.”

Ryde straightened up and started walking toward him. Harlan backed up until his legs hit the bed, and he sat with a plunk. Ryde smiled. “Gotta use the bathroom, out in three minutes. Think you can dress that quickly or are you gonna give me a peep show?” Ryde cocked his eyebrow in what Harlan could only assume was humor, and he went through the door.

Harlan rushed to get dressed within his time limit, forgoing his boxer briefs to save precious seconds. He pulled his sweater over his head and heard a crash from the bathroom. He ran over and threw the door open to see Ryde standing in front of the sink with soapy hands, staring at his reflection.

“What the fu—” He followed Ryde’s gaze to the mirror and saw what had happened. The steam from Ryde’s hand-washing had brought his message back, front and center for the world to see, or more importantly for Ryde to see. His jaw dropped. Could the morning get any worse? He met Ryde’s gaze in the mirror and nearly lost his last trace of sanity when Ryde gifted him with a cocky half grin. “It’s not what you think.”

Ryde shook his head and laughed. “Har, my dream, I don’t know if you just made my job here easier or harder. But I do love a challenge.”

Mari's Review: 

*ARC provided by Pride Promotions in exchange for a fair and honest review.*

This is a very enjoyable trilogy. I absolutely adored that all the stories were interlocked somehow and that the characters from the previous stories featured in the rest of them as we advanced before tying it all up.

Harlan's Ryde is the story that starts it all. Ryder makes a huge mistake seven years before, which sent Harlan into running away from him, when Ryder finally manages to track him down, he's set on making things right between them, but first he has to convince Harlan and that won't be an easy feat after the way they ended things.

I loved Ryder. Yes, he made a huge mistake, and yes, he should've realized beforehand that his actions would have dire consequences, but he was young and wanted to guard his heart. Once he realized the error in his ways, he tried to make it right, but had to wait seven years for that to happen.

Harlan, on the other hand, was a bit stubborn about accepting Ryder's apology, even after all the explanations and there were times when I just wanted to shake him up a bit. Still, he more than made up for it and  I really enjoyed their story and loved seeing more of them in the next installments.

Emery's Ritches, the second story was the one I enjoyed the least of the three, mostly because, while I loved Emery, I can't say the same about Ritch.

Ritchie was in love with Harlan and was his best friend, and hated Ryder with a passion. I didn't particularly cared for him all that much, and couldn't connect with him as a character. I loved Emery, though, and all his machinations as he tried to get Ritchie to love him back.

Geoff's Teddy was my favorite of the three stories. Both Geoff and Fuzzy were so likeable and relatable and perfect for each other! It was lovely to see their friendship just bloom into something more and the way they both dealt with the fact that Fuzzy was supposed to be straight. It was fun, sweet and hot with just a dab of angst and it brought it all up to a very nice conclusion.

Rating: 4.5 Stars!

About the author:

I annoy, love, respect, scare, seduce, hurt, anger, infatuate, frustrate, flatter, envy, amuse and tolerate everyone. I just do it better in writing thanks to a little thing called…edits.

Okay no, seriously…I'm a simpleminded person who enjoys the escape from real life through a book. I write with the group Story Orgy and hope to continue doing so for a long time. I also am privileged to be with the Pulp Friction writers, creating intermingling books in a world all our own.

I recently took the drastic step of quitting my EDJ (evil day job) and am now living in the gorgeous desert in Arizona making a go at this writing stuff full time…and I can’t see me regretting this decision ever.

Just like every other red-blooded human—I get a little bouncy when I get mail (any kind too…email, comments, private messages…you wanna do it, do it with me *winks*). So feel free to drop me a line—whether it's on my blog, twitter, PInterest, or you track me down on FaceBook or Google +…it's easy to catch someone who wants to be caught. 

I specialize in writing boyxboy though I read almost everything...and I fancy myself as slightly funny every once in a while. :)
