Review Blitz & Giveaway ~ Bad Boys Need Love Too by Christa Tomlinson


Bad Boys Need Love Too by Christa Tomlinson
Genre: GLBT Erotic Romance
Release Date: October 21st, 2014
Hosted by: Book Enthusiast Promotions


You won’t let anybody else have you, Joseph. I won’t let anybody else have you. I want you all to myself.” – Gage Mason

We’ve all had our experience with him. The Bad Boy. The one we’ve been warned about. The one with rips in his jeans and a lazy, devil may care smile on his mouth. The one who makes you do bad things that feel so good.

For me it was Gage Mason. We met when he worked on my Ducati. I knew immediately he was trouble, but something about that Bad Boy drew me in. Maybe it’s his dark eyes that study me like he wants to know everything about me. Maybe it’s the way he makes me feel; the rough touch of his hands, his possessive grip on my hair when we kiss, the way he feels deep inside me. Or maybe it’s the way he needs me, even though he won’t admit it.

For once in my life I’m taking a risk. Despite everything that tells me I shouldn’t, I’m taking a chance to be with Gage. I don’t know if it will end well, but I do know I can’t resist that Bad Boy.

A few minutes after seven o’clock, Gage rang the bell to Joseph’s townhouse. He looked around the area as he waited for him to answer the door. The place was nice and well-kept, but bland. It fit in more with the suit side of Joseph rather than the ponytail and motorcycle side of him. He wasn't sure if he liked it or not. The door opened and an immediate wave of arousal washed over Gage. Joseph was dressed more casually than he'd ever seen him. His hair was in a sloppy ponytail with messy tendrils escaping randomly. He had on a t-shirt with the logo of a band he didn't recognize, and his frayed and washed out jeans sat low, really low, on his hips. The tattered hems of the jeans covered half of his bare feet. Gage decided he didn't care what the house looked like. If it let Joseph be this at ease, then he liked it.
Joseph smiled at Gage before stepping back to let him in. "Hey. You find the place okay?"
"Yeah. It was a pretty straight shot over here from the shop."
Joseph discreetly inhaled as Gage passed him. He'd obviously just gotten out of the shower. The clean scent of the ocean was on his skin and his hair was still wet and slicked back. The man smelled good and looked even better. He noticed Gage watching him. Joseph cleared his throat, hoping he hadn't been too obvious checking him out. "The game's already on. I can grab us a couple of beers and then show you around if you want before we watch." Gage didn't say anything so Joseph took that as agreement and went into the kitchen.
Joseph grabbed two beers out of the fridge and took them over to the counter. He heard Gage’s footsteps come into the kitchen as he set the beers down to look for a bottle opener. "I hope Shiner is okay. I like to drink local beers," he said without turning around. But again Gage didn't answer. His footsteps came closer and Joseph went still as he came up behind him. Gage brushed his ponytail aside and trailed his lips over the back of his neck before he whispered into his ear.
"I don't want to watch baseball." Gage’s hand closed over his, moving it away from the bottle. "I don't want a fucking beer." That same hand drifted up his arm, raising goose bumps on his skin before it slid under his shirt to caress his belly. "You already know it, but I'm telling you that I want you." Joseph gasped as Gage’s hand slid down to the waistband of his jeans, popping them open. The zipper went down, one slow metallic rasp at a time.
"So you tell me right now if you don't want this to happen."
Joseph could barely control his breathing as Gage’s hand slipped inside his jeans to tease his growing erection.
"Otherwise, I'm gonna be deep inside you within the next fifteen minutes."
Gage squeezed his cock and Joseph moaned, pushing his ass back against the hardness he felt behind him. Gage groaned and licked his neck.
"Maybe sooner. What's it gonna be, Joseph?"
Joseph took a moment to answer. Not because he was unsure, but because Gage’s fingers on his shaft, and his body heat against his skin, and that voice in his ear had his brain a little bit scrambled. "No baseball. I want you."

5+ -Ridiculously Hott- Stars
~this review may contain minor spoilers~

Joseph was taken aback by the intensity he saw in those eyes. They were bright with heat and sharp with hunger. He'd never had anyone look at him like that before. His heart pounded with an exhilarating mix of fear and desire. Maybe he was right before. Maybe Gage was too much for him.

Bad Boys- everyone's met one, everyone's lusted for one, but the reality is never quite as pretty as the books make them out to be... doesn't make them any less human, just vastly more dangerous to our hearts.

Joseph Naderi took his Ducati in for service never expecting to meet his very own bad boy. He knows he should stay away from the hott mechanic working on his bike, he has trouble and heartbreak written all over him; but Joseph just can't stay away. He is drawn to the man like never before and decides to throw caution to the wind, taking a chance on something so uncertain is definitely a risk but-the higher the risk the higher the reward, right?!

Gage Mason may be a bad boy but he has earned the title the hard way. His life has never been easy and events from his past have made him the man he is today. He doesn't do relationships, just sex, and lots of it. Events from his past have made him more than a little cautious of allowing himself to get close to anyone, but from the minute he meets Joesph he knows somehow he is different... and that scares the shit outta him. He knows he should stay away from him, he will only end up hurting him in the long run, that's what he does, but he is drawn to him like never before. Can he convince Joseph to be with him on his terms, or will the pretty boy lawyer force him to re-evaluate the way he lives his life?

Joseph, I don't want to be with you surrounded by strangers. I want you to myself. I want you alone so that I can kiss you and lick you and get inside you. That's what I'm thinking I want to do tonight.”

I'm still relatively new to M/M Erotic Romance, as in this is only my second venture, but if books like these are anything to go by; I could totally get lost in this genre. This ride was AhFrigginMazing! Wickedly-ridiculously-insanely hott, loaded with fantastic characters, tons of drama and emotion, action, surprises, and so much more. The steam was off-the-charts and there was a lot of it, like a crazy amount; normally I would say there was almost too much but, sex was such an intricate part of who Gage was that having so much of it was just a natural part of the story. Also, it didn't hurt that it was some of the most intense sex scenes I've read in awhile and my life is steeped in dirty books. There was just so much to love about this book, the author delivered on every level that the only complaint I have is that it's over. I was -screaming at my kindle- excited when I came to the end and saw that she has more planned for these people, I CANNOT WAIT to get back into their lives. Christa Tomlinson has shot her way straight onto my One-Click-Addiction List with this super-fabulous read and I am DYING for more.

His words weren't pretty or sweet, but that was okay with him. He loved the way his bad boy talked to him.
You're mine, Joseph. Just like I told you. Mine to fuck however I want. You belong to me, pretty boy.”
