RELEASE BLITZ AND REVIEW: A Little Bit Like Desire by Brooke Blaine


A Little Bit Like Desire, an all-new STANDALONE contemporary MM romance from USA Today bestselling author Brooke Blaine is LIVE!


What if you had everything in the world you wanted…except the man you never knew you needed?

Shaw Jennings, the seductive, enigmatic owner of Body Electric Tattoo works hard and plays even harder. He’s built a life he’s proud of, and though that doesn’t include a significant other, he’s got plenty of sexy men to keep his bed warm at night. None of them have ever made Shaw sit up and take notice for long, though. But that all changes when a famous rock star walks through his door.

Trent Knox had the world in the palm of his hand as the lead singer of TBD, one of the biggest rock bands in history…until the day he walked away. A getaway to South Haven Island seems like the perfect place for Trent to find himself again and reignite his passion for music. But what he never expects is to find his muse in a six-five, tatted-up badass whose sinful smile he can’t get out of his mind.

The only problem? Trent’s a notorious womanizer, and Shaw isn’t interested in being someone’s experiment—muse or otherwise. But in a town as small as this one, Shaw is finding it more and more difficult to keep the persistent rocker at arm’s length.

As the tension between them builds, maybe it’s time to finally give in and get carried away with something a little bit like…desire.

My Review

Let me start by saying that the opening scene of Brooke Blaine’s newest release, A Little Bit Like Desire, is one of the HOTTEST scenes I have ever read and the fact that the encounter happens completely in the DARK, with no names, no preconceived notions, and no words just makes it that much hotter. The entire scene is shown through Shaw’s point of view, and because his friend, Bash, is the one who set up this rendezvous in total darkness, there are no thoughts of doubt or fear; in fact, the mystery of it…the erotic nature of the situation only amps up the pleasure felt and the exploding release that occurs.

As an avid reader of Blaine’s books, I was introduced to Shaw Jennings, the hot tattoo artist, in Jackson and Lucas’ story, and with the insight provided in A Little Bit Like Love, it was clear that Shaw was not a man who needed or even wanted to settle down. He was up for no strings sex but there were never repeats in his bed, so the fact that he can’t get a certain mystery man out of his head, constantly replaying every sensual touch and arousing caress.

But never in his wildest dreams would Shaw have expected his unknown partner in the dark to be someone who would change so many aspects of his life.

Trent Knox may be a famous rockstar but he walked away from that life 6 months ago, needing a new direction for his career that stretches him as a musician and gives him the independence he craves. As a bisexual man, he has had to hide one side of himself from the world, making him feel incomplete, so taking Bash up on his ‘dark room’ experience is a no brainer for Trent; he just never thought that, that encounter would lead him to a man who not only helped him music but also allowed him to be himself in every way possible.

Trent is absolutely a game changer for Shaw, just as much as Shaw is one for Trent. They’re both pretty intense guys – ones who commands a room and attract stares from from everyone who cross their paths, and while their pairing may not seem like it would work due to the fact they are both dominant men, they fit perfectly together and experience something with each other that they’ve never felt with anyone else.

I absolutely adored Shaw and Trent’s story. The way that Brooke Blaine crafts their storyline perfectly illustrates their mutual attraction and once they both realize who the other one is, it further drives up their desire for each other and leads to some extremely steamy scenes between these glorious men.

I was beyond thrilled that Blaine didn’t make things more difficult than they needed to be for Shaw and Trent. It was clear that Trent never explored the side of himself that desired men due to his image as a rockstar, but that doesn’t mean he wants to hide it or make anything between him and another man a dirty little secret, and I love that, that stigma wasn’t an issue anymore than it needed to be.

A Little Bit Like Desire is one hot read but it’s also more than that…it’s about friendship…about having faith in oneself…about going after someone or something that a person wants, even if it’s scary and new, and after seeing Bash as matchmaker in Shaw and Trent’s story, I’m beyond excited that his story is up next.
