Playboy. Jokester. Uncle Jakey. Bro.
Living in this small town my whole life means everyone knows my name. The one title I never expected to take on?
My father’s will is clear: the only way I’ll ever see my inheritance is if I get married. I never cared about the money. I cringe at the thought of letting him manipulate me from the grave.
But now I’m short on time, out of options, and desperate for cash.
Cue the wedding bells.
The only reason I’m moving forward with this crazy idea is because I’ve figured out a way to unlock my inheritance while also raising the middle finger to my father’s legacy.
See, there’s something Joe Whitely’s narrow-minded bigotry never counted on: times have changed. Laws have changed. Getting married doesn’t mean I have to find a wife like he so desperately wanted.
In fact, I’m determined to do the opposite.
I just have to find myself a man, convince him to marry me, and pop my relationship cherry.
Because that’s the catch: I’ve been with plenty of men. And women. But I’ve never been in a committed relationship.
I guess I better get used to hearing it, saying it, and figuring out what the hell it means if this plan is going to work.
**Mr. Brightside is a full-length standalone M/M romance featuring Jake Whitely from the Hampton Hearts Series. It contains content some may find triggering, including offensive language and discussion of attempted SA. It is a dual POV story featuring characters in their mid to late twenties. It ends with a HEA.
From a troubled past, which you can read about in Rowdy Boy; to a husband in the blink of an eye.
Well okay, maybe the marriage started out as a scheme to get the inheritance his abusive father left behind to fund his dreams, but sometimes fate works out that way.
Feelings get real and real gets messy when the infamous manwhore and the serial monogamist get together.
I loved the characters in this book, even the side characters. They were genuine feeling and the dialogue flowed easily. It was easy to get caught up in this book and immerse yourself into the world that was built here.
