Salacious Park Avenue Prince (Park Avenue Princes Book 5) by Ella Frank & Brooke Blaine

It's here folks! We finally get the story of Travis and Caleb and Oh baby is Salacious Park Avenue Prince a juicy one!!

From the blurb:

Who are we? Like you even need to ask. We’re the seven richer-than-sin legacies causing debauchery at the prestigious Astor University in Manhattan.
Some call us spoiled.
Some call us trouble.
But everyone calls us the Park Avenue Princes.

Travis McKinney
“The Outrageous One”

Or, as some of my fellow Park Avenue Princes like to call me, the Manwhore of Manhattan.
Act like a sex god, dress like a sex god, be a sex god. In my opinion, these are fantastic life goals. I have no idea why my parents think I have no direction.

I’m the fun one. Easygoing. A massive flirt. I get along with just about everyone, except…

Caleb Reeves.
Also known as “the Bane of My Existence”

He’s everything I’m not: Focused, effortlessly sexy but straight, and an ex-Park Avenue Prince. Or the “Pricks,” as he likes to call us now.

Our rivalry is legendary. Putting us within a hundred feet of each other is just asking for trouble. But no one other than the two of us knows why or how it began, and we plan to keep it that way.

The unspoken agreement is that Caleb keeps to his side of the city, I keep to mine, and we avoid each other at all costs.

Which would be great, except we have to see each once a month at family dinner.

Because Caleb isn’t only my arch-nemesis, he also happens to be…my stepbrother.

Salacious Park Avenue Prince is the fifth standalone novel in the Park Avenue Princes world.

Jacqueleen the Reading Queen's review:

"I'd let him in, lowered all my defenses, and what had I gotten for it? The cold, hard slap of rejection - something I'd promised myself I would never let anyone make me feel again, especially Caleb fucking Reeves."

Whoa boy Caleb and Travis sure had a lot of baggage to unpack before they could get on the road to their HEA. Like, a lot. So much resentment and hurt could have been avoided for years if these two had just communicated with one another. BUT! They were 17 when the major shit went down. SEVEN-TEEN. I don't know about you, but I don't think I have ever met a 17 year old boy who has ever been eager to have a chat about their emotions, especially if the ones they are feeling are dominated by hurt. I'm sure they are out there, but I haven't met one. So, it is completely understandable to me that these two teen boys decided that avoiding their issues, and subsequently each other, was the best solution to their problem rather than having a heart to heart.

"We'd danced our way around this argument a hundred and one times, but we'd never gotten into the thick of it. Never waded through the murky waters of the whos and why. But apparently it was time to pay the fucking piper."

I was so pumped when these two finally got to this point. It needed to happen. They couldn't continue on the way they were. It honestly broke my freaking heart to see Travis so vulnerable. He was such a fun character throughout the series. Travis was larger than life, always looking to have a good time. And to be privy to the devastation he hid from the world with his smile was just a lot for my heart to take. Caleb didn't help the situation either. For someone who used to be Travis' best friend, he sure didn't take the time to look a little deeper. But he was finally fixing that now.

"Why did you cut me off like that?"

"Because it was easier to ignore you than it was to look at you every day."

Caleb and Travis had a lot to work through, but in the end, they actually did the work. I wouldn't go as far as to say they both wholly matured the years they had been "apart," but hindsight is 20/20 and when the truth was finally out in the open they both took the steps toward healing together. Of course I loved how nosey the Princes were and how they all were hungry for the truth. I swear they could also be known as the Park Avenue Gossip Hounds. And the one man who was the least sorry about sticking his nose in their business, is also the one man left standing. You know who I'm talking about and I'm sure if you've made it this far in the series, that just like me, you absolutely cannot wait to see him fall next.
