Book Review – Aced (PresLocke #1) by Ella Frank, Brooke Blaine

From Ella Frank’s Sunset Cove series and Brooke Blaine’s L.A. Liaisons series comes a scorchingly hot novel that blends humor, passion, and romance.

What happens when these two worlds collide?


Good question.  It usually explodes and burns down the house.

Ace Locke is Hollywood’s hottest action hero. Dylan Prescott just scored his biggest modeling campaign yet.  As luck would have it, Dylan is being offered a part in Ace’s newest movie.  Both have fantasized about each other over the years, and as soon as they lay eyes on each other it’s all over.  Of course having the hots for each other doesn’t help at all.  At the beginning Ace is not willing to do anything about it, since he is freshly out of the closet but hasn’t really “done” anything officially yet.  He is hesitant about going the next step.  And on top of that paparazzi are always right around the corner.  So they start slow.  But after spending enough time together they decide to give it a real try.  But off course nothing stays hidden forever in Hollywood or Las Vegas.



Aced was my first book by either authors.  I’m definitely getting more and more into the M/M genre.  Mostly because if I’m honest, the writing is exactly as if it would have been a hetero couple.  I’ve read one time a M/M book written by a gay author and it was way different.  A good different!!  Even an excellent kind of different.  Anyway, I really enjoyed Aced.  The sparks flew from the very moment Ace and Dylan met.  The witty back and forth was a joy to read.  Both were down-to-earth kind of guys.  Confident in their feelings, even though the thought of truly coming out was terrifying.  I felt their attraction, it was believable, and smoking hot.  The ending was kinda cliffy.  It’s definitely not over for both of them.  Aced was just the first book in what seems to be a trilogy.  So, I’m definitely looking forward to the next book.
