Tycoon Amazon

He wasn’t always this rich. This hot. This difficult.

Aaric Christos was a guy who protected me. Wanted me. Maybe even loved me.

That man is gone.

In his place is the most powerful real estate tycoon in the city.

He’s a cold, ruthless, aggressive businessman.

The only one who can save me and my startup from ruin.

It takes every ounce of courage to put my pride aside and ask for his help.

I didn’t expect him to offer it easily.

And he doesn’t.

Instead, he vets me harder than he’s vetted anyone.

Don’t invest in what you don’t know, he says.

He’s assessing every piece of me, to the point I’ve never felt so bare.

I yearn for the boy I once knew, whose touch once craved me.

Putting it all on the line will be worth it, I tell myself.

Until I realize—too late—that some risks are not worth taking.

Strong Enough by Melanie Harlow & David Romanov

Genre: Contemporary MM Romance

Publication Date: June 19, 2017


I wasn’t looking for Derek Wolfe.

I wasn’t looking for anybody. All I wanted was to start a new life in America. But when I found myself stranded here with no place to go, he came to my rescue, offering me a place to stay.

He’s smart, successful, and sexy as hell—I can barely sleep knowing he’s right down the hall. And when the chemistry between us explodes one night with fierce, fiery passion, it’s hard to deny there’s something real between us.

But he does.

He says he was drunk. He says it was a one-time thing. He says he’s not into guys and what we did meant nothing.

He’s lying. Because it happened again, and again, and again. And it’s better every time.

I know we could be good together, and I want the chance to try, but I’m done hiding. If he’s not strong enough to admit the truth, I’ll have to be strong enough to walk away.

This was a late addition to our review schedule so there wasn’t really much time to think about the blurb before reading, however within the first chapter it was abundantly clear that Strong Enough was a book that I was going to enjoy. Now, I prefer my books with some grit – a lot or a little – it doesn’t particularly matter, especially with a M/M book, as long as I can sink my teeth into it. Strong Enough is not that kind of book, there’s no dark, gory details within the pages, there’s no rough around the edges alpha males competing with one another but what there is here is a beautiful story that captivates the reader and with each chapter the compulsion to keep reading was there in spades. I loved the ‘easy’ read that this book seemed to be. The words carried me, the story held onto me and didn’t let go. I was sitting with two other bloggers over the weekend trying to explain what it was that hooked me about Strong Enough and I simply couldn’t find the words to explain why. In hindsight, having thought about the book a long time, I think perhaps the fact that it feels like a ‘real’ read, something true to life, is what had me hooked. My understanding is, from the Q&A with the authors at the back of the book, that Strong Enough is somewhat part autobiographical. For me, the writing captures the realism of the story and it’s most likely why I found it so appealing and loved reading it.

The characters had a fantastic depth to them, tremendously likeable even when things were not quite ideal. Derek and Maxim were made for each other, neither expected on another but boy did they have something that we all wished we could find. The chemistry between these two men sizzled from the very beginning. I loved how they met and I loved how they ended up. The secondary characters fell into place pleasantly, complementing the story in all the right places and extremely affable.

I’m not familiar with Melanie Harlow’s writing but I felt that she nailed this. Angsty in all the right places, some serious steam and lots of reflective voice that never bored me. I can’t really say that much more about this book in all honesty, there’s nothing I would change, nothing that bothered me, nothing that made me think twice about awarding this book the 5 stars it so thoroughly deserves. Beautifully written, full of emotion, richly descriptive and perfectly balanced. What I will say is this – Strong Enough surprised me. It’s not the kind of book I read and enjoy, yet this bowled me over. Find a cosy corner somewhere and grab a glass of wine, give yourself a few hours to get lost with Derek and Maxim’s story, you won’t regret a second of it. I promise.

About Melanie:

Melanie Harlow writes sexy, emotional romance about strong, stubborn characters who can’t help falling in love. She’s addicted to bacon, gin martinis, and summer reading on the screened-in porch. If she’s not buried in a book or binging on Netflix, you might find her running, putting a bun in someone’s hair, or driving to and from the dance studio. She lives outside Detroit with her husband and two daughters.

Melanie is the USA Today bestselling author of the HAPPY CRAZY LOVE series, the FRENCHED series, MAN CANDY, AFTER WE FALL, IF YOU WERE MINE, and the sexy historical SPEAK EASY duet, set in the 1920s.

“Jesus Christ, this woman could be my downfall. Could make me forget all that I am.”

The This Man trilogy is probably one of our all-time favourites. Therefore, you can imagine how excited we were to hear Ms Malpas was going to release a spin-off of the series and even better, we’d have the opportunity of meeting up with Jesse again. Of course, this little gem of a read wouldn’t be the same without Drew’s other die-hard friend, Sam, who’s as willing as Jesse to give their pal some advice about hmm… his nocturnal preferences. We honestly felt as if we were eavesdropping on their conversation which we have to say had us grinning from ear to ear. If we didn’t know the author was female, we’d think she was a fella because she certainly writes like one, thinks like one and blinkin’ heck; her leading man’s character was spot on! In fact, one of the most common pitfalls when narrating a story in first-person present tense is the reader’s given too much minutiae of everyday life. This never happened. Drew’s inner-thoughts are told in some very clipped sentences which we found all male. No matter how mundane his actions, we were mesmerised by them. Even when he’s a tad confused about his feelings, he tries to reason with himself and tries to get straight to the point without much ado. 

“I hardly know anything about you.”

“Like I said, this isn’t a date. All you need to know is that I have a cock and I have ability, and with them I can blow your mind.”

One thing is for sure, even though Drew’s knocking on a bit; we wouldn’t dream of telling him that because he’d be more than offended, he still has no wish to change his lifestyle. Drew learnt the hard way when life threw him a curve-ball of such magnitude that the last thing on his mind is settling down. His mates have, his happy for them but it’s not even on his overflowing agenda. Actually, there is someone very special he’d do absolutely anything for, but isn’t the person who will bring him to his knees.

You’re attracted to me.

Although you’re a little older than I expected.


From the very beginning of his story, he’d made it very clear to us what he wanted, so we weren’t quite sure how he’d react to what was about to happen. You see, the author had other ideas for this drop-dead gorgeous alpha by not only spicing things up in the bedroom, but also complicating his very existence. The way Drew coped with his feelings was incredibly realistic and not surprisingly, he tried to fight against them. After what he’d been through, it was easy for us to understand why he’d always steered clear of emotional entanglements. No lovey-dovey, no strings, no drama. Just hot kinky sex!

“… I’m mad to question my decision.”


“Because if you don’t have anyone, you can’t lose anyone.”

Up until now, both of us had been enthralled with what we’d read; however, when Raya walked into the scenario is when it got really interesting. What she wants from him tickles his fancy, fits perfectly into his no romantic ties beliefs, but does open up his curiosity. You know what they say about curiosity, well. . . say no more!

“I’m a man touching forty and for the first time in my life, I’m in tatters over a woman. You, Raya.”

We are suckers for age gaps! Although Raya is quite a bit younger than Drew, we found her mature enough to connect with him on a deeper level. Nonetheless, it was a level she didn’t want for reasons to be revealed and would cause them both distress. Yet her sadness is a mystery, its routes he has to discover regardless of everything he’d shunned in the past. If a carrot had been dangled in front of his nose, he wouldn’t have been able to stop himself!

“Sweet? I’ve been described as many things, but sweet isn’t one …”

Ms Malpas’ descriptive writing is as such that she left us captivated and we can’t not mention the witty and hilarious interactions between Drew, Sam, Jesse and the adorable character we can’t mention. It has us in fits and tucks! We love banter in our reads and as usual this author did not disappoint. It was great to see such a fun side to Drew because in previous books he came over somewhat surly. He’d always stood in the background and both of us felt a little cheated we didn’t get to know him a little better. This book not only gave us Drew, but also gave us a glimpse into the lives of Jesse, Ava, Sam and Kate and for that Ms Malpas, we would like to say thank you. Bravo!

Annie has never experienced the ‘spark’ with a guy-the kind of instant chemistry that steals your breath and blindsides you completely. Until a night out with friends brings her face to face with the wickedly sexy and mysterious Jack. It’s not just a spark that ignites between them. It’s an explosion. Jack promises to consume Annie, and he fully delivers on that promise.

Overwhelmed by the intensity of their one night together, Annie slips out of their hotel room. She is certain that a man who’s had such a powerful impact on her and who could bend her to his will so easily, must be dangerous. But she’s already in too deep. And Jack isn’t only dangerous. He is forbidden.
