Nightclub owner Marcus Feldman never met a man he didn’t love, at least for the night. Although his best friends have all found love, Marcus shuns their advice to commit to one man and settle down. His past has taught him monogamy and marriage is for fools, and Marcus is anything but a fool.

Tyler Reiss’s dream of dancing professionally is unexpectedly cut short and replaced by a different kind of love. He trades in his ballet slippers for go go boots, and spends his nights dancing at the hottest gay club in the city. Flirting with the customers for tips is easy, but resisting the dark and sexy Marcus is becoming harder to do with each passing day.

Unforeseen circumstances bring Marcus and Tyler closer and though they give in to their mutual passion, both still struggle to guard their hearts. When crises threaten, Tyler and Marcus find their strength in each other rather than falling apart. Tyler must choose to either run, or stay and fight for the life he wants, while Marcus realizes that love doesn’t mean losing himself and opens his heart, making him a better man in the end.

“This wasn’t a permanent arrangement; you knew that.” Tyler leaned against the wall. “I can’t impose on you any longer. I’m sure you want your bedroom and your life back.”

“I didn’t mind it last night.” He walked over to Tyler and placed a hand on his neck, stroking him. This he could do. He had no qualms about seducing Tyler to stay with him. The troubling reason why he wanted him there so badly, Marcus pushed to the side for now. Instead, he pulled Tyler close, settling their hips in line, and his cock thickened in his pants. “I’d tell you if I did. Please, come with me to brunch, and we can talk.”

Doubt clouded Tyler’s eyes. “I don’t belong there. Those are your friends, the people you’re closest with.”

“I had my dick inside you twice last night, Tyler. How much closer could we get?”

It took Marcus many minutes of deep, persuasive kisses to rid Tyler of his confusion. When he pulled away though, the ground under his feet reeled, and Marcus needed a moment to compose himself.

They remained standing close; Tyler’s hands rested on his shoulders while he clasped Tyler around his hips. He nuzzled Tyler’s ear, then pleaded with him.

“Come on; you have to help me out here. They’re all coupled up, and the last thing I want is to listen to them be all disgustingly loving and happy.”

An amused glint lit Taylor’s eyes. “And you hate that, huh?”

“Bet that sweet ass of yours I do.” He gave Tyler’s ass a squeeze for effect, and the light in Tyler’s eyes smoldered.

“If you want me to come, you’d better get your hands off my ass.”

Marcus’s lips curved up in a grin as he popped open the button of Tyler’s jeans and drew them down.

“I definitely want you to come; in every way possible,” he said, and sank to his knees, uncaring of how late he might be to meet Zach and Julian.

5 out of 5 stars

Second To None is the third book in the Breakfast Club trilogy. While the books are each different couples I highly recommend reading them in order as they are very connected stories.

Of the three friends in this series, Marcus proudly wears his love 'em and leave 'em status for everyone to see. While he's happy that Zach and Julian have both found their loves, Marcus is feeling deserted by his friends. He knows it's not a rational thought but his past experiences have jaded him to a very large extent. He doesn't trust in love for the long term, or really love at all. That is until Tyler comes into the picture and slowly moves into Marcus's life.

Tyler has given up everything he'd imagined for himself to take care of his young niece after his sister left for work one night and never came back. His dreams of dancing professionally can't work when he has a 4 year old to raise. He ends up go-go dancing at Marcus's club, not happily but it's more money than he could make elsewhere. When Marcus notices him one night and tries to get in Tyler's pants, Tyler completely resists him. And that get's Marcus all annoyed and sets him on a mission to change Tyler's mind. Until circumstances throw them together unexpectedly along with Tyler's young niece.

I loved the dialogue back and forth between Tyler and Marcus all the way through this book. Marcus was stubborn as hell and wasn't going to change his way of thinking. Tyler was just as stubborn and wasn't going to settle for a moment when he has his niece depending on him. They both fight their feelings for each other, particularly Marcus until he faces that he needs Tyler in his life. It's a rough battle for Marcus because of what he's been through in his life. He doesn't trust love and fights it with every breath until he doesn't and allows himself to open up to love.

While this is the last of the trilogy, it's tied with Zach and Sam's story as my favorite for the series. I enjoyed the story, the characters, and the wrap up to the series. Now that's not to say we aren't going to see more of The Breakfast Club guys in the future. If you haven't tried this trilogy yet, you should really pick this one up. You can't go wrong with any of Ms. Steven's books but this group of friends has really stuck with me.


Felice Stevens has always been a romantic at heart. While life is tough, she believes there is a happy ending for everyone. She started reading traditional historical romances as a teenager, then life and law school got in the way. It wasn't until she picked up a copy of Bertrice Small and became swept away to Queen Elizabeth's court that her interest in romance novels was renewed.

But somewhere along the way, her reading shifted to stories of men falling in love. Once she picked up her first gay romance, she became so enamored of the character-driven stories and the overwhelming emotion there was no turning back. 

Felice lives in New York City with her husband and two children. Her day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass or two of red wine. Although she practices law, she daydreams of a time when she can sit by a beach and write beautiful stories of men falling in love. Although there is bound to be some angst along the way, a Happily Ever After is always guaranteed.
