My Fake Boyfrenemy (Elysian Escapades Book 3) by Casey Cox

It's kind of funny when everyone thinks you hate your best friend. Marnus and Pierce have to switch their friendly insults to actual compliments when they pretend to be boyfriend's in front of Pierce's ex. But it just so happens that both men want to be boyfriends for real. My Fake Boyfrenemy is a fake boyfriends standalone novella.

From the blurb:

I can’t tell if he wants me, or hates me. Both. It's probably both.

From the moment we met, Pierce Owen lit a fire inside me. A confusing fire.

There's something between us. A chemistry I've never had with anyone else.

But I can't get a handle on the guy. He runs hot one minute and cold the next.

And why do I even care? After all, I'm straight…ish.

Which should make it easy to pretend to be his boyfriend when Pierce's douchey ex shows up.
But instead, it only blurs the lines even more.

Could my fake boyfrenemy turn into something real?

***Elysian Escapades is a NOVELLA spin-off series from the Escape books. Each novella can be read as a stand-alone.

SNik's Review:

Third in novella series (Elysian Escapades, spin-off from the author’s Escape series). Best frenemies and fake boyfriends. Dual POV. Quick read. 

Marnus and Pierce are best friends that act like enemies and sort of wish they were more. But Pierce has been hurt before and Marnus has only recently realized his attraction to Pierce when Pierce’s awful ex makes an appearance. 

This is a short story so there is not a lot of background but there is enough description and understanding of the established relationship between Marnus and Pierce to make them falling for each other sweet and special. 

Some harsh friendly banter, honest communication, and some steam made for a fun read.
