A Friends with Benefits Giveaway

by Jennifer LaBelle

When I first came up with the idea for my new Decadent Edge release ‘Friends with Benefits’ I was treading in new territory. I love the M/M genre, but before now had never ventured into anything other than reading it. And, while I’ve written a bunch of hot M/M scenes into various ménage’s in the past, it was a whole other experience to come up with a believable, yet scorching hot plot for you all between my two characters, Collin and Devin.

 My first time writing M/M turned into Collin’s first well...you know, *winks*

So check it out, enjoy the blurb and excerpt below, and leave a comment with your email address’ for a chance to win an e-copy in your choice of format, and don’t forget to buy a copy too. J

I’ll announce the winner on Monday October, 8 2012.

Collin Harrison is loving life as a bachelor, but can’t convince his meddling mother to back off. To make matters worse, he’s confused by his attraction to his new neighbor, Devin. But Collin has never been with a man before.
Devin Hardy is no stranger to fulfilling his intimate desires—desires which include his hot neighbor. Good things come to those who wait, but Devin is getting tired of waiting to turn their friendship into one with scorching hot benefits.

“What’s on your mind?”
“It’s nothing.” Collin sighed. “Or maybe it is. But I’ll figure it out, I guess.”
“Like what?” Devin flicked the TV off with the remote and waited.
“My social life has slowed down since I began hanging out with you.” Here we go, breathe, take the plunge and just breathe.
“Gee, thanks.” Devin grimaced. “Way to make a guy feel welcome.”
“I didn’t mean it that way.” He laughed and moved a little closer to him. “I just meant that I’ve had fewer dates recently, that’s all.”
“So you need to get laid.” His friend shrugged. “That sounds simple enough. You don’t need me to help you out with that, do you? I mean….”
Hell, yes, I do. “I guess it is, but my appetites might be changing, and I’m a little unsure about it. It also doesn’t help when you have a mother who likes to meddle. I’ll be hitting thirty soon, and she wants me to settle down.” Collin grimaced before continuing. “I’ve got to love the woman, and so help me God I do, but she’s now got a list of potential candidates.”
“Potential candidates?” Devin’s eyebrows shot up in disbelief. “For a future wife? Well, I’m not sure I can help you there, buddy, but I can get you laid if you want. I know a couple of girls who are pretty open-minded and would help you with your—” He made air quotes with his fingers and grinned. “Appetites. That is of course, if it’s a woman you’re hungry for.” He watched Collin’s reaction to his offer, starting with his face then downward to rest on the boner straining to get out and play.
He blushed. Shit! “Uh….”
Devin licked his lips. “Have you ever had a friend with benefits?”
“Sure, but not in awhile.”
“How about with a man? Have you ever experimented?”
Speechless, and completely turned on, Collin couldn’t form the words to answer. His fantasy was finally within reach, and like a dumbass, he choked. He shook his head no but prayed Devin would continue his pursuit.
“Would you like to?” 

Best wishes,
Jennifer Labelle
