Thumbs up Free (Kindle/Kobo/DRM-free) Bad Company [Gay Fake Boyfriend Erotic Revenge Romance]

Bad Company by K. A. Mitchell is the 1st in their Bad in Baltimore series of standalone m/m contemporary erotic romances featuring different couples set in the titular city, this installment involving the classic pretend-to-be-lovers-with-someone-considered-unacceptable in order to troll your obnoxious family and in the process discover that you're probably going to end up getting therapy for sex addiction with your former-friend-now-upgraded-with-benefits plot, with a fillip of revenge on said family for having ruined said former friend's family leading to the former former-ness of said friendship, free courtesy of publisher Samhain.

This has 4 out of 5 flames on the heat index over at All Romance eBooks, and no particular warnings. Aside from the usual Samhain content disclaimer, that is.

Currently free @ Amazon (available to Canadians & in the UK), Kobo & Google Play (both available to Canadians), and DRM-free in multiple formats available worldwide at All Romance eBooks. Will likely also drop @ B&N (doesn't seem to exist in their UK store, for some reason) in a few more days, and may show up free directly from the publisher as Samhain freebies usually do, although they may be getting experimental with their self-pricing again, if their other recent freebie is anything to go by. Linkage for your price-drop check convenience anyway.

And this has been the selected 3rd (non-repeat) free ebook thread of the day.

Because if it's going to be a primarily-romance-freebie-posting sort of day, I might as well post one with a bit of orientation-oriented variety in it (and some semblance of backstabby intrigue, which often makes for added fun in freebies of a certain type).

But on a more serious note, I did actually read one of Mitchell's earlier Samhain official publisher promo m/m freebies a couple of years ago and overall mostly liked it (enough to pick up one of the tie-in sequels that looked interesting during a deep-discount sale, by way of thanks for the freebie), even though it was somewhat heavy on the pointless-seeming relationship melodrama side for my taste.

So I would put this overall as a likely to be entertaining and decently written m/m story, with hopefully a greater amount of actual plot and not so much relationship drama this time around.

Enjoy!

Description
Some things are sweeter than revenge.

“I need a boyfriend.”

Hearing those words from the mouth of his very straight ex-friend is enough to make columnist and editor Nate Gray choke on his Corona. It’s been thirteen years since Kellan Brooks’s father crushed Nate’s family on his climb to wealth and power. Even longer since he entrusted Kellan with the confession that he might be gay—only to have his best friend out and humiliate him to their entire high school. The last thing Nate expects is Kellan begging for his help.

Breaking off his engagement to a senator’s daughter was the last straw for Kellan’s CEO father. Frustrated at being cut off, his father’s stinging words—that he wishes Kellan had never been born—still ringing in his ears, Kellan turns to Nate. In a move worthy of a corporate raider, Kellan plans the ultimate revenge. Come out as the boyfriend of the man his homophobic father betrayed.

Convincing Nate to play along isn’t easy. It’s even harder to figure out why the lie feels so close to the truth.

Product Warnings: Contains old friends, old enemies, a dramatic cat rescue, soft drink references and a lot of teasing before the steamy sex. Readers are cautioned against drinking any beverage while reading to avoid accidental snorting or spraying of said beverages.

At some point this finally dropped to free @ Samhain (DRM-free in multiple formats available worldwide). Still free @ Amazon & Kobo, but seems to have expired elsewhere. Will probably be disappearing soon as they'll likely rotate their freebies for the New Year.
