Brook Street: Rogues

Brook Street: Rogues is the 3rd book in the Brook Street series from Ava March. From the Carina Press website.~
London, 1822

Two of London's most notorious rakehells, Linus Radcliffe and Robert Anderson, are the best of friends. They share almost everything--clothes, servants, their homes, and even each other's bed on occasion. The one thing they don't share: lovers. For while Linus prefers men, Robert prefers women...except when it comes to Linus.

As another Season nears its end, Robert can't ignore his growing jealousy. He hates watching Linus disappear from balls to dally with other men. Women are lovely, but Linus rouses feelings he's never felt with another. Unwilling to share his gorgeous friend another night, Robert has a proposition for Linus.

A proposition Linus flatly refuses--but not for the reasons Robert thinks. Still, Robert won't take no for an answer. He sets out to prove a thing or two to his best friend--yet will learn something about the heart himself.

I was lucky enough to get an early copy of Brook Street: Rogues from NetGalley. I’ve read the first 2 books in this series and really enjoyed them, so was happy to finally get Radcliffe’s book.

I wanted Radcliffe’s book from the moment we first met him in the first book. Something about him made me want to see him find his very own happily ever after. I knew he and Anderson sometimes hooked up, but he also seemed just as happy to pick up other men at various events. Linus has only ever wanted men, while Robert has shown a preference for women, except when it comes to Linus. However, Robert has finally realized the only person he wants to spend his life with is Linus.

The chemistry between Robert and Linus is really hot. Any readers looking for hot m/m loving will get it with this story. I also loved the scenes between them when they were just spending time together as friends or their times together after they made love just as much. Even before Linus gave his reasons for not having an exclusive relationship, I understood him being hesitant to change their relationship.  I really loved them as a couple, but loved that Robert would accept friendship only to keep Linus in his life. As much as I enjoyed the HEAs from the other two couples in this series, I liked seeing Linus get his HEA best.

The official release date for Brook Street: Rogues is set for May 7, 2012 and you can find it at Carina Press, Amazon, B&N, or any favorite online bookstore.
