What if you had everything in the world you wantedexcept the man youd left behind?

Jackson Davenport, the charismatic, strait-laced heir to the Davenport fortune, has a secret. One he’s been hiding since he graduated from South Haven all-boys academyand that secrets name is Lucas.

When a work trip takes Jackson back to his old stomping grounds, memories of the year he shared with Lucas come crashing to the surface. With growing pressure from his father to settle down and take over the family business, Jackson knows he’s on borrowed time, and sets out to find the free-spirited daredevil he once knew.

But Lucas isn’t the same man he was eight years ago.

One night. A shattered heart. And an endless parade of nameless faces. Lucas Sullivan is South Haven’s ultimate playboy, a reputation he’s honed since the only boy he ever loved left without a trace. To the world, he’s brash and confident, an in-demand artist who spends his days designing one-of-a-kind pieces and his nights as king of the downtown scene.

Many have tried and failed to get past the barrier he’s carefully constructed, but it’s the shy, studious boy he once coaxed out of his shell who still haunts him.

Maybe it was a mistake. Maybe it was lust. Or maybeit was a little bit like love.

Eight years ago Jackson and Lucas were each other's ... everything. For a short eight months, they were best friends, and so much more. But then Jackson's father dragged him out of the Georgia all boy's academy two weeks before graduation - to 'get ready for Yale' back home in Connecticut.
But we all know that he must've found out about the queer boy corrupting his son.

They haven't seen each other in eight years.
But now Jackson has business down in South Haven.
And Lucas is a famous artist in town. Who is a tiny little bit mad at Jackson for how things ended back then.

Can this finally be the second chance for Jackson and Lucas?
Or have all those secrets, lies, omissions, misunderstandings and whatnots destroyed everything?
And will Jackson be able to finally stand up to his father? Fight for what he really wants?




Such an adorable second-chance love story!
You immediately love both Jackson and Lucas.
They're both so very different but at the same time, they're just the same. Both pretty much all alone in the world.
They should've been together all these years, but now they finally get that second chance. Let's just hope they fight hard enough for it! We want that Happily Ever After!!!!

This was such an erotic and adorable and moving and frustrating and beautiful romance!
I loved every second of it!

Can't wait to see what Shaw will have to tell us in the 2nd book:
A little bit like desire - coming this fall!!!!☺

A LITTLE BIT LIKE LOVE was such an adorable & sexy & moving second chance love story! Hurry to your nearest amazon for your own Lucson/Jackas!!! These two are MINE! ☺

ARC received for an honest review

I have adored every word written by Brooke Blaine so far, so the chance to read an early copy of her new MM book was a no brainer.

MM is my jam - I seriously can't get enough of it, and can't get enough of Lucas and Jackson.

I love a second chance romance, and A Little Bit Like Love swept me away with the raw emotion and love and lust our boys have for each other.

I liked that there wasn't too much OTT drama and angst - sure there were some issues, that is why they were away from each other, however it is real issues that were relatable.

The sexual tension is through the roof - this girl is still fanning herself a couple of days after reading.  With all that spark, you just knew that things were going to be hot hot hot once they got to that place.

Jackson and Lucas have an epic journey to get back to each other, and each and every page is a delicious insight into their lives, leaving me anxious and gasping with anticipation at what would happen with them next.

Now I am  tapping my foot, impatiently waiting for the second book in the South Haven series.



In case you haven't read Brooke's amazing M/M series, written with Ella Frank - DO IT NOW!!!

Book #1

Book #2

Brooke's L.A. Liaisons series:





You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read. She used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her quiet time. Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she nowcarries around and the size of her onesie pajamas.

Brooke enjoys writing sassy contemporary romance, whether in the form of comedy, suspense, or erotica. The latter has scarred her conservative Southern family for life,bless their hearts.

If youd like to get in touch with her, shes easy to find - just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone thats dominated her cell phone for ten years.
