Professionally, Dr. Alec Johnson has almost reached his goals. As this year’s recipient of a humanitarian award with his ex, Dr. Tyler Hall, Alec’s work with the homeless is about to be recognized. Unfortunately, his personal life sucks because now he has to attend several events alongside Tyler—with his ex’s new boyfriend in tow. In an attempt to lift his mood and break out of his rut, Alec purchases a motorcycle he has no idea how to start.

Dylan Booth doesn't have time for Dr. Clueless and his fickle 1964 Harley, but the cocky mechanic can’t say no to the request for help. Having spent his teen years on the streets, and losing his best friend to HIV, Dylan decides teaching the do-gooder how to ride is the least he can do. But watching Alec flounder in his ex's company throws Dylan into protector mode, and the confirmed hetero introduces himself as Alec's new boyfriend.

The ex suspects Dylan is lying.

Alec claims Dylan’s plan is insane.

And Dylan’s not sure he can fake being gay.

But he’s a master bullshitter, and the phony PDA soon turns ultra-hot. Alec can’t afford to get attached, and Dylan’s learned everyone eventually leaves. Unfortunately, playing the backup boyfriend is starting to feel way too real…

CONTENT WARNING: This book contains Man-on-Man action, adult situations, and language.

Maria’s Review

This one was a pretty hot read. Low drama, for the most part.

➦Dylan is straight. (or so he thinks)
He is single and has commitment issues. He loves motorcycles and owns a bike shop.

➦Alec is gay. He is a successful M.D who runs a clinic.
He just got out of a 2 year relationship and made an impulsive buy… a motorcycle he doesn’t know how to ride. No worries, Dylan to the rescue.

➦The books starts out in a pretty fun way. These two have a bit of a fake relationship for show going to make Alec’s ex-boyfriend jealous. But they start spending more time together riding motorcycles and later on riding each other 😀
