*Sigh* I love Lucas and Jackson! Their romance and story, while heartbreaking at times, is so perfect and heartwarming.
This second chance romance is so effective because of how wonderful Jackson and Lucas are as people. This is not to say they are perfect. Jackson bends to the will of his father, who has less than honorable intentions. He has denied himself happiness to honor his father wishes and be the namesake of his family. Lucas has coped with loss by a string of one-night stands. He has emotionally shut himself off from others and seeks physical gratification to siphon the pain. Readers are incredibly sympathetic to these characters and what they have been through. We love them and root for them to overcome the hurt of the past to have a better future together.
These two, once they meet up, have immediate chemistry, and Brooke Blaine brings the heat from their first intimate moment together. Through plot development, the reader along with the characters, gets to see what actually occurred in the past, which increases investment in Lucas and Jackson to make it work this time around. The best part of the novel though is the evolution of Jackson and Lucas. Getting to see them stand up for themselves and against those set out to separate them is so rewarding! Plus, Brooke Blaine gives us a host of side characters I adore.
Brooke Blaine continues her MM reign. I adore her stories and her men. The relationships and stories are really something special.

What if you had everything in the world you wanted…except the man you’d left behind?
Jackson Davenport, the charismatic, strait-laced heir to the Davenport fortune, has a secret. One he’s been hiding since he graduated from South Haven all-boys academy—and that secret’s name is Lucas.
When a work trip takes Jackson back to his old stomping grounds, memories of the year he shared with Lucas come crashing to the surface. With growing pressure from his father to settle down and take over the family business, Jackson knows he’s on borrowed time, and sets out to find the free-spirited daredevil he once knew.
But Lucas isn’t the same man he was eight years ago.
One night. A shattered heart. And an endless parade of nameless faces. Lucas Sullivan is South Haven’s ultimate playboy, a reputation he’s honed since the only boy he ever loved left without a trace. To the world, he’s brash and confident, an in-demand artist who spends his days designing one-of-a-kind pieces and his nights as king of the downtown scene.
Many have tried and failed to get past the barrier he’s carefully constructed, but it’s the shy, studious boy he once coaxed out of his shell who still haunts him.
Maybe it was a mistake. Maybe it was lust. Or maybe…it was a little bit like love.

About Brooke Blaine:
You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read; she used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her ‘quiet time.’ Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she now carries around and the size of her onesie pajamas.
She is the author of Flash Point, a romantic suspense standalone, as well as the co-author of the erotic series, A Desperate Man, with Ella Frank. The latter has scarred her conservative southern family for life, bless their hearts. Licked, a romantic comedy, will be released November 11th, 2015 and is the first in the L.A. Liaisons series.
If you’d like to get in touch with her, she’s easy to find – just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone that’s dominated her cell phone for ten years.
