Broken got a facelift! No new words have been added, but a few names have been changed (except for the audio, as that cannot be changed). 

After years of drowning myself in parties, hook ups, and pain, all it takes is one viral sex tape to be given a choice: Hide out on an island or lose my trust fund.

Having to share a room with the one man I let hurt me is my worst nightmare.

I’m the broken shell of the boy he walked away from on the worst day of my life.

I hate him almost as much as I hate myself.

This island was supposed to be a place I could rest but instead I’m running.

From Asher Vaughn.

From myself.

From the scars on my heart that never healed.

It hurts to look at him and see all the things we never got to have.

But how can I keep him at arm's length when he watches me the way he used too?

When he touches me?

When he calls me his?

We can’t be together, not off this island.

The straight football star and the gay femme son of famous parents.

The media would rip us apart and ruin his career.

I barely survived the last time he left me, can I survive being deserted again?

Broken is a brother’s best friend, mm romance with some praise kink, and a broken boy in desperate need of love. This story has triggers which you can find on Andi's website.

Eight Seconds to Ride

by Ashley James

A steamy one night stand in the bathroom of a bar in Las Vegas after a world championship win? Yes, please.
 
Meeting him again months later, only to learn he’s my newest competition? Not so much.
 
The weight of the legacy I carry is a constant tug in my mind, with the ghosts of the generations before me always whispering for me to push harder, train longer, be better.
In the eight seconds I have to ride, everything else falls away and my sole focus is on doing what I do best.
 
I am Shooter Graham, consecutive three time world champion bronc rider.No one has ever come close to taking the title since I’ve had it… until him.
 
Sterling Addams. The new cowboy in town with dark hair, eyes like honey, and a taste for me he likes to pretend he doesn’t have.
 
He’s green… but he’s good. Too good.
Suddenly, the already heavy pressure I’m under multiplies tenfold. The need to beat him, the uncontrollable urge to put him in his place, becomes almost an obsession.
 
The question is, how far will I go to prove I’m number one?

Something Wicked

by Lily Morton

After powerful psychic Blue Billings fell in love with Levi Black, he believed their biggest challenges would arise from Blue’s ability to see and speak to the dead.

A sadistic serial killer is stalking their beloved York, and Blue himself is in the killer’s crosshairs. Blue and Levi must race against time to catch the murderer as the deaths increase in ferocity. But when they’re forced from their home, and close acquaintances seemingly disappear like mist over the Minster’s spires, Blue finds that he is completely and terrifyingly on his own, and for the first time in his life, he’s without his powers.
 
This is the third book in the bestselling Black and Blue series. The books are meant to be read in order.

Zephyr and The Western Wolf

by Sam Burns & W.M. Fawkes

The prince is dead, and dragons are the stuff of storybooks.

That is, until a great shadow passes over the edge of the Tangled Forest. Rumor sent an intrepid adventurer to a tower in the middle of the woods, and the story he carried back changed everything: Prince Zephyr is alive, and he’s being held prisoner by a giant beast of a dragon.

The prince disappeared more than a decade ago, and the kingdom mourned his loss and set his crown on the wheat-blond curls of the young princess. But now, the race is on as every knight in the kingdom and the lands surrounding it have come to slay the beast and bring the prince home.

Macarius has travelled from the Western Wastes with nothing but his horse and trusty sword, but he isn’t interested in saving a scrawny prince—he wants to meet a dragon. If he happens to save the prince and take him home, then that will just be a happy accident. Or maybe an annoying one, since Prince Zephyr isn’t nearly as happy to see his savior as he should be.

Zephyr and the Western Wolf is an MM fantasy romance featuring one oversized drake, a young mage at the end of his rope (or vines, as it were), and a warrior determined to bring a miracle home for his people... or at least, one miraculous man. It was originally published on Burns & Fawkes's Patreon page as the 2023 Fantasy Romance.
