Product Description

Book #1 in the Bad Boyfriends Series
Kane leads a double life. By day, he pumps iron, running a fitness center, where jocks and Cougar flock for the burn and the ‘tude. By night, it's something else entirely that gets pumped, as Kane swaps sweats for Armani to cater to an exclusive clientele, willing to pay well to indulge their special interests and tastes. His double life isn’t a problem until his conniving ex tightens the financial screws.

Finding and retaining suitable companions for his after-dark clients isn’t easy. David Black’s pole dancing performance at a friend's club hints that he might hit all the bullet points on Kane’s list of requirements, in a way that could mean something other than “just business.”

David is out of work and out of options, so when he’s offered the choice of starvation or performing both on and off the stage, it’s a no-brainer. Kane’s offer of a position with the escort service is as attractive as the man himself, and David agrees to a trial period involving certain conditions. He quickly finds that he’s out of his depth.

Confronted with unanticipated roadblocks, one thing is clear… neither man is taking no for an answer.

HASH(0x9f2d57d4) out of 5 stars Toe-Curling And Laugh-Out-Loud Funny! July 27 2014
By The Ghost - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Yet another triumph by the incredible Nya Rawlyns. The sex is toe-curling, the characters are loveable (all except for Marshall; he's a jerk, but no spoilers here, I promise!) and all I can say is that I cannot wait for Book Number Two! (And Three and Four and ... well, you get the idea.) It's another awesome series by the same incredible writer who brought me the Crow Creek Series, although this story tends towards the more lighthearted; there are far more laugh-out-loud moments with this one (my cats are pretty upset with me, I have to say) than with the men of Crow Creek.

The back and forth between Thomas Kane and David Black is undeniably sexy and can be uproariously funny - they complete each other from the very beginning. And now, if you don't mind, I'm going back to read it again while I impatiently await Book Number Two!
HASH(0x9f2d5828) out of 5 stars Interesting Read! June 2 2015
By Victoria Rainey - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Curling Iron is the first book in the Bad Boyfriends series by Nya Rawlyns.

Kane leads a double life, during the day he runs a fitness center and by night, he runs a business that caters to exclusive clientele willing to pay to indulge in special interests. However, an ex is starting trouble leaving Kane trying to fix all the problems. David is down on his luck and working as a pole dancer to avoid starvation. David is willing to take Kane’s offer but is still out of his element but the promise of money makes him at least try it.

The beginning of the story leaves you interested to know more. At the end of the first chapter, I could not wait to finish the book. The author tried to create a realistic world however; I always felt like I was missing something and had trouble picturing the world. In addition, the story line had many holes that I had trouble understanding. The pace of the story was very fast paced from the first chapter to the last. The main characters and the secondary characters were exciting and realistic. I liked that both Kane and David had faults that they each had to battle making them realistic.

The point of view alternated between Kane and David, giving the reader a glimpse inside both characters. The changing point of view was done with care so the reader did not get lost or repeat story lines. The dialogue between the characters was honest and unique. The characters voice matched not only the setting but fit their overall personality. The ending was a bit predictable but I would have liked a bit more background information. I hope we get to see these characters again in the future.

HASH(0x9f2d5c60) out of 5 stars Tinkers to Evans to Chance--What a Triple Play! May 18 2015
By Bo - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
Remember the early 1900's baseball triple-play combination (see headline here)? Well, here's a trilogy anchored around three main alphas, each with a newly acquired crush, totally believable in many instances and respects even though a bit off-the-wall in plot twists.

I purchased the box set because it saved me money, but I would strongly recommend that anyone interested could also buy them separately, and I will post this review on them as well. Please read the short blurbs for each book, they are correct and each book cover is perfect (except for the second which does not feature both MCs, but is critical in showcasing the real star of the series).

In "Curling Iron," our seemingly cold and ultra-alpha Tom Kane is totally consumed by his ex-boyfriend's revenge campaign and the exceptionally handsome, athletic and versatile pole dancer who falls into his life, heart, and business, which is on one hand a gym and on the other hand an escort service. Their adventures start off the series on a solid, methodical pace, picking up speed toward the end, dovetailing perfectly into the second book.

In "Pumping Iron," cover man Mike Douglas' gruff exterior and personal approach to relationships seems to come completely apart when a Bad Boyfriends escort, Sean Rourke, gets thrown into his life by Tom Kane on a mission that could financially straighten out the business--and almost instantly changes their lives.

Unfortunately, they have to play babysitter to an eclectic, love sick middle aged lawyer, "Junior" Lovett, whose family law firm in Boston wants him out of the way for a while. Out of the way is in the Hamptons, where Lovett worms his way into the "family," and winds up introducing us to another major player, the cute twink-cum-lifeguard-cum-porn star Dax.

The adventures of this foursome rival and then rout the escapades in the first book, taking us deeper into the escort trade and beyond. The character of Mike Douglas becomes dominant here, but Lovett becomes pivotal, and Sean is the one who keeps Mike heading in the right direction.

That direction is back to Manhattan where in "Jerking Iron" Tom Kane has been roped into a sting operation by the local authorities and FBI that promises to go a long way in helping Bad Boyfriends stay solvent and put their vengeful competitor out of business. To that end, David Black recruits his best friend from childhood, Nick Lopez, a hulking ex-cop from Miami with plenty of experience in the kind of work Bad Boyfriends and the authorities need. But his life and the mission become complicated when the New York police pair him up with Jace McClune, a gruff, almost grungy undercover detective whose experience, and proclivities, prove crucial to the adventure.

This book is the longest, strongest, fastest-moving and most intricately plotted of the three, and involves all three couples plus the uncanny Junior Lovett and sweet boy Dax. There is some BDSM here, some serious violence here and there, but in the end, there is more credence to the entire three-book escapade than one might have expected.

These characters are memorable from the start, and except for Sean who is somewhat ignored in the third book, they are all crucial to the outcome. The wonderful thing here is that author Rawlyns creates a situation in each book where the two MCs are instantly attracted to each other through lust, and almost immediately join at the hip for other reasons.

And the sex? The sex is phenomenal. You would be hard-pressed to find a better all-encompassing series than this one which needs absolutely no sequel to keep you interested. You are satisfied, if not totally out of breath.

HASH(0x9f5ae03c) out of 5 stars Unexpected Match Sept. 21 2014
By Toni H - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
David is down and out. He's barely surviving working dead end jobs. One night in a seedy club where in works behind the scenes, he's bribed to take the place of a male exotic dancer who also does hand jobs and BJ's after the show. He isn't comfortable with the sale of his body, but he's terribly desperate.

"I don't do that." I'm a good boy, I am...

Kane owns a gym and

"Yes. Well. I run an escort service. We specialize in servicing the needs of a very select, gay clientele."

Kane's ex is trying to make him loose everything stealing away his best employees so Kane is looking for someone new. He happens upon David, who has a gymnastics and dancing background, pole dancing at the club and knows he's found what he's looking for.

Both men are so very lonely and looking for love. Both have had nothing but heartache so far in matters of the heart. Kane was with a man he thought loved him that was really just using him for his money. Then when he found someone richer, he took off while trying to ruin Kane financially. David has been willing to try anything to find it even though he just wants plain simple everyday love.

I'd done this dance before. Twice before. Trapped. Trapped and wanting it so bad I'd let them hurt me before I realized it wasn't dominance, it was sadism, and I'd become and unwitting victim who didn't understand the rules of engagement. A victim who ended up at Bellevue in the ER.

I am really surprised by how much I loved this story. I don't know why, but I was not expecting the depth. Also the author's writing style is so interesting. There were no downtimes in the book. I was entertained through every page. This quote about how one feels about the other is actually a fairly good summary of this read.

If I was honest, I'd already fallen. I wasn't farting rainbows over the guy, or buying rings, but that empty spot in my chest had filled for a few hours, just by having him in my life. Yes, the sex was mind-blowing. Maybe the best I ever had. But that wasn't all of it, not even close.

HASH(0x9f2d5fcc) out of 5 stars Wonderful Start for a New Series July 12 2014
By Osirri - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
This is by FAR my favorite by Nya Rawlyns. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

Thomas Kane has had his heart broken, and to rub salt in the wounds, his ex is up to no good. David Black could possibly be the balm to cure said heart break, but they have to work out some kinks in the process. I am foaming at the mouth for the next one in the series, and I JUST finished reading this one.

The writing is spot on, fast paced, and the romance between the two men is enjoyable. There's no insta-love here.
