Product Description

Boyd will do anything to avoid his cousin Coco—even pretend to be gay. He’s visiting his dad who’s got a broken arm, and all he wants is for her to leave him alone, so Boyd calls his best friend to come rescue him. That’s what friends do, right? His father swears that karma is going to bite him on his butt for lying, but Boyd can’t think of any other way to extricate himself from Coco’s clutches. 

 

Harrison will do anything for his best friend—even pretend to be his fake boyfriend, because he’s awesome like that. Once he arrives, though, Boyd surprises him with a “practice” kiss, which is just totally uncalled for. Before Harrison can fend him off, they’re on the bed making out. How does he get into these crazy situations? Oh yeah, Boyd and his wacky ideas. Harrison’s going to make him pay for this (even if he kind of secretly enjoyed it) because that’s how karma works.

Be Warned: m/m sex, mild BDSM, public exhibition, spanking

Excerpt:

Boyd moved in before he lost his nerve. Harrison’s eyes went wide, and then their lips collided. To his shock, it didn’t feel all that different from kissing a woman. Harrison’s mouth was soft and he smelled faintly of mint. Boyd cupped his cheek, momentarily surprised by the prickly stubble, but then Harrison inhaled and the kiss deepened. Boyd gasped as Harrison licked inside, grabbing his arms.

Oh my God, he thought, shocked as arousal shot through him. Harrison’s hands tightened, and Boyd slid his arm around his friend’s neck, kissing harder. Harrison growled as Boyd pressed their bodies together. His cock was rock hard and he had no idea when that had happened. He wasn’t sure he cared. He just knew he wanted more.

Unexpectedly, Harrison slotted his leg between Boyd’s, putting pressure in all the right places. The firm insistence of his best friend’s erection against his body had him gulping air. Harrison broke the kiss and backed up, eyes wild. Boyd stared at him, trying to deal with the insane hotness of what had just happened.

“What the fuck was that?” Harrison asked, voice cracking.

Boyd shook his head mutely. He really couldn’t talk right now. His cock was jammed into the crease of his jeans, pinching things that shouldn’t be smooshed. He reached down to adjust himself. When he looked back up, he realized Harrison was staring at his groin. He slowly slid his hand to his hip, watching Harrison watch him.

That’s so fucking hot, he thought, rattled. “I’m sorry,” he said aloud, stepping further back. His hip knocked against the dresser by the window and he grabbed on, needing the stability.

“Jesus, Boyd,” Harrison muttered, still staring. Abruptly, he strode forward and grabbed Boyd by the shirt.

Boyd braced himself for a punch, but instead, Harrison kissed him again. His mouth was hot and sweet and Boyd moaned even as he trembled.

“Shit,” Harrison said, biting Boyd’s lower lip. “Shit.”

Boyd agreed, but he didn’t move away. He wanted more. A lot more. When Harrison finally broke off, Boyd slumped against the dresser, hot and flushed and really fucking confused.

“Shit,” Harrison said again, green eyes burning with intensity. His sandy hair was tousled and Boyd stifled the urge to run his fingers through it.

“That didn’t quite go like I’d planned it,” Boyd said, clenching his fists.

Harrison laughed. “I’ll bet. What the hell were you trying to do, anyway?”

Boyd cleared his throat and looked away. “I figured we could kiss in front of Coco so she would get the hint.”

Harrison backed up and sat on the bed, shaking his head. “Dude.”

“I know. Major fail.”

Harrison looked at the ceiling. “So, have you ever kissed a guy before?”

Boyd snorted. “Uh, no.” When the hell would he have done that?

“Yeah, me neither.”

They were silent for a bit. Then Harrison asked another question. “Did you know?”

“Know what?” Boyd frowned.

“That you’d like it.”

He shoved off from the dresser, ignoring the squeak of the wood. “Shit.” He started pacing at the foot of the bed. “Maybe it’s you.”

“What the hell is that supposed to mean?” Harrison asked, a hint of irritation in his voice. He leaned back, looking like sex on a stick.

Boyd pinched the bridge of his nose. “Maybe it’s because you’re my best friend. And we’ve known each other forever. That could be why.”

Harrison grimaced. “Years of familiarity can not make up for my lack of boobs, trust me.” Ridiculously, he ran his hands down his chest.

Boyd choked. How did Harrison do that? Just when he began to panic, his best friend made him laugh. “I just mean that you know I care for you. Maybe that’s what made it so…” He flapped his hands suggestively.

Harrison raised his eyebrows. “So… what?”

Boyd steeled himself. He was not a coward. “Hot.”

  1. The TBR Pile 5 Star Review

    Have you ever started a book and halfway through the first page you just know this is going to be a great read. Karma Bites was that kind of book! Boyd has a crazy cousin named Coco who is determined to date him, horrible perfume and scary boobs galore! The very idea gives Boyd the willies so he calls on his best friend, Harrison, to pretend to be his boyfriend. Meanwhile his dad thinks he’s really gay and Boyd starts a kiss with Harrison that surprises them all.

    I could not, COULD NOT put this book down. It was short but had a complete story arch with fantastic, well developed characters. Poor Boyd. Poor Harrison. That kissing scene was an absolute blast. Boyd’s dad was so freaking funny. I loved him!

    Karma Bites is a sexy short story that shouldn't be missed!

    KARMA BITES is exactly what a short story should be. Fun, steamy and cute.

    Boyd and Harrison pretend to be boyfriends because Boyd's second cousin won't stop hitting on him. Yeah. I'd have a fake boyfriend/girlfriend/wife/whatever, too! It was all fun and games for the guys until they had to practice being gay. Heh. Things got hot and heavy pretty quick.

    Because of their best friends status, I felt their chemistry from their first interaction. I knew, just knew, that they were going to be good together. And, oh boy, they were so good and so sexy.

    Now, is a double gay-for-you and pretend boyfriends story realistic? Probably not, but it was well done so it didn't bother me in the least.

    I love it when a short story turns out to be just as good and with just as much chemistry as a full length novel. Oh yeah, KARMA BITES is definitely a keeper.


  4. Hearts on Fire Review 4 Star Review

    Boyd is visiting his father, who has a broken arm. A cousin, Coco, is being obnoxiously in his face about taking Boyd out, being with him and generally making herself a nuisance. Boyd’s solution is to call his best friend, Harrison, and have him come out for the weekend to be his pretend boyfriend. They’ve been friends for years, so Boyd has the blackmail material to snitch to Harrison’s mom if he doesn’t. The awesome part about it? Boyd’s dad, who is so happy Boyd is finally coming out of the closet. What? Boyd isn’t gay! Harrison isn’t gay! It’s just a set up.

    Because these two are best friends, it made it just cuter because they tease and bicker like old friends, yet the first kiss? Adorable! It turns out there is more to Coco’s wanting them to go out than it first appears and again I wondered – why are they even taking the hit for her! But they are nice guys, so they do.

    It’s a really interesting concept, but since this is so short, you don’t get quite enough background on some things (such as Coco – why in the world is Boyd willing to do anything for her? Just because she is annoying?) There are a couple instances of name switching that made me reread the paragraph but nothing to rip you out of the scene. The story is told well and the characters are given enough depth to make you like them (especially Dad, he’s the best) but I’d love to have more.

    A wonderful, friends-to lovers fun story with two great lead characters.

    Boyd made a promise to his grandfather when he was a child that he would always look after his cousin Coco. What he didn't anticipate was the amount of times he had to bail her out in dangerous situations that she'd somehow managed to get herself into. In high school, Coco knew she could always count on Boyd to bail her out and not tell her mother.

    Now, older, but not necessarily any wiser, Coco has set her sights on Boyd as boyfriend material. Seeing no way out of it, Boyd blurts out that he's gay and has no interest in dating women. Thinking he's home free, Boyd despairs when Coco insists that Boyd invite his boyfriend down for the weekend and she can take them to the nightclub, Karma Bites.

    Harrison has been best friends with Boyd for years, ever since they shared a college dorm and Boyd took the rap when Harrison accidentally set fire to the dorm. But he is still shocked at the phone call from Boyd, wanting him to pretend to be his boyfriend. They're just friends, they aren't gay, how are they going to pull this deception off?

    When Boyd suggests they practice being boyfriends before Coco arrives, that's when they realize that perhaps they weren't as straight as they had thought.

    After reading quite a few angsty stories lately, this one was a breath of air. It was a fun, lighthearted read with lots of banter between the characters.

    Although short, the author doesn't skimp on characterization or detail and you know you are reading a complete tale. The make out scene with Boyd and Harrison on Boyd's bed was so hot, and when they were caught by Boyd's dad and Coco, you were embarrassed on their behalf.

    Karma Bites turns out to be a bit of a kink club, and Coco's motives for taking them there aren't exactly pure. Coco is in trouble with the owner, glamorous drag queen Karma and owes the club a scene. Boyd refuses to do a scene with her, but will do one with Harrison instead. And the scene that follows is one of the most sensual and emotional scenes I've ever read in any book. It isn't about the physical aspect, but more how connected they are to each other and it doesn't really matter about the audience, because all Boyd and Harrison see are each other. The reader doesn't just know it, they feel it, too.

    I enjoyed every minute of reading it, despite the 'love you' declarations that seemed a bit sudden. Short, but hot and sweet.
