  Title: Hard Edit
Series: Black Balled #2
By: Andrea Smith & Eva LeNoir
Publication Date: September 4, 2016
Genre: MM Romance

It’s all fun and games until egos get hurt.

After a year of a seemingly happily-ever-after, Troy Babilonia throws a curve ball that smacks Larson Blackburn right in the head. When Troy’s debut novel, “Bridge to Lonely,” threatens to overshadow Larson’s own success, inviting a past shadow into the light of their present, the two alphas must learn to adjust.

“Bridge to Lonely” has garnered an unexpected success both in the literary world and in the film industry, forcing Larson to accept that he is not the only successful author in the building. But as Troy’s old flame decides to make an appearance, the two alphas are forced to test the strength of their love. Let the battle of the egos recommence; where sarcasm is the preferred weapon, and the testosterone levels go beyond the boiling point.


Because Black Balled just wasn’t enough…Smith & LeNoir bring you Hard Edit.

Troy and Larson have been together about a year and happily together, co-existing while maintaining separate apartments for when they need a little “space” from each other’s alpha tendencies. Quietly on the side, Troy has been working on his own writing project as a surprise to Larson. When Troy ends up having some success with his debut and a man from his past pops up, there is a bit of trouble that pops up in paradise. Will these two be able to share their true feelings and get past these bumps or is getting naked the only way these two are able to communicate?

“Still, I can’t help but get my point across to Larson that maybe he’s sacrificing his book’s message by pandering to the secondary subplots, i.e., erotic scenes versus the real plot of his book. Yes, sex sells, but is that truly the path he wants to take?

I think not.”

So many funny lines in this series. If you haven’t read Black Balled, you really need to. I fell in love with Troy and Larson and their humorous sparring and competitiveness. This book was just so much fun to read and I loved that it was set in the book world with bloggers and signings. Larson was hilarious trying to “school” Troy on his first signing and seeing it from Troy’s point of view…just so on the mark. I mean we all want the hunky guy pics, right? They are sexy, badass and quite nerdy all at the same time. While they were definitely in a relationship, they hadn’t quite figured out how to get to their happily ever after. They knew they wanted to be “together” but sometimes had a hard time getting there. When one of their careers takes off, egos get bruised and it’s time to figure out how to make it all work out.

I admit I love a good alpha M/M book. This has to be one of my favorites. I’ve been recommending it to everyone I know that likes M/M. This is a MUST READ.
