Break the Rules: Rough Love Part 3

by Leighton Greene

Xander Romano strives for harmony in his life. He’s a set of contradictions: cruel but kind, famous but private, loving but merciless. He lives on the knife edge, and that's how he likes it.

But he just asked his boyfriend for the one thing he swore he’d never want.
And now Xander’s perfect balance is starting to sway…

Ben Ballard is coming into his own. His career is taking off, his talent is being recognized, and he’s exploring a whole new power exchange with Xander. He followed the Big Bad Wolf right into the middle of the forest, and he did it willingly. But how much can Ben give to Xander before he starts to lose himself?

And how black can things get before Ben finds the light in Xander’s darkness?

Break the Rules is the third part of the Rough Love series. Join Ben and Xander in their continuing odyssey of self-discovery, experimentation, and steamy fun as they work out the kinks together. Never fear: these two will get their HEA. It'll just take them some time to figure out what that happy ending looks like for them...

Rough Love can be rough. Please proceed with caution if you have any triggers.
