Because Black Balled wasn’t enough, the authors have come together to bring you more Troy and Larson in Hard Edit!!

Hard Edit (Black Balled #2) by

Andrea Smith & Eva Lenoir is LIVE!


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.

Hard Edit, the sequel to Black Balled, by Andrea Smith and Eva LeNoir, is absolutely fantastic! Like the first book, I listened to the audio book narrated by Joel Leslie.  The characters, including Muffy and Minette, are well developed, amusing and fabulous.  Joel Leslie brought them to life, gives the story the extra cherry on top to an already fabulous story.  

Troy and Larson have been dating for a year now and are still living in their apartments within the same building. Troy has been secretly finishing a novel that is loosely based on his rough childhood. As a result, Troy’s childhood friend, who is mentioned in the book, seeks him out.  This causes so much drama!  Who knew that the childhood friend, Ethan, later went on to date Larson years later!  Can Larson and Troy get over the jealousy that they have for the other?  Can their relationship survive it?

This series is a #OneClick for all those who love a naughty MM romance!


My favorite moment. That second before I enter him. That instant right before our bodies become one, our heartbeats sync into a practiced tempo and our souls merge into a single entity. My hips are positioned between his thighs, Troy’s legs folded against his chest and our gazes lock. “I love you,” I whisper and, before he has a chance to answer, I push my way inside him and still. “I fucking love you, Troy,” I say again, louder this time as I pull out and thrust back in more forcefully. Troy grunts, pulling himself up as he places his feet back on the mattress and wraps a hand around my neck bringing our faces only inches apart. The slight aroma of wine lingering on his breath wafts around my nostrils all mixed with the scent of our sex. Male on male, two dominant men fucking away their concerns. But it’s more than that, isn’t it?

This is everything.

We are everything.

Two dominant males, two worthy adversaries, in a business that takes no prisoners, will soon learn that fate refuses to be ignored . . .

My name is Troy Babilonia, but I’m best known as Babu, a renowned literary critic with my own online column. I’m followed by thousands! I’m a living god in the literary world. I have no filter, and for that, my flock of humble followers are forever grateful. If it weren’t for me, they wouldn’t know what to read. I have zero tolerance for the weak-minded attention seekers, nor do I have respect for the self-proclaimed geniuses of the Indie world. My advice to all Indie authors is to never break the cardinal rule in this cut-throat business. Ever.

My name is L. Blackburn and I’m an Indie author. My extraordinary genius was loved and worshiped throughout the literary world, until one egocentric critic tried to obliterate my career. It seems I broke some “cardinal rule,” and now I’m paying the price for it. But I don’t plan on going down without a fight.

Wowwy wow wow wow!

Black Balled by Andrea Smith and Eva LeNoir is completely panty melting!  I listened to the audio book narrated by Joel Leslie and was absolutely engrossed in this story!  Not only was it completely naughty, but the story line is fantastic and captivating.

In this story, L. (Larson) Blackburn is an author and his latest book was torn apart by the hottest reviewer Babu (AKA Troy Babilonia).  Larson is so angry that he writes back a response to Babu, beginning a feud between the two.  As the drama escalates, the book rises on the NYT Best Sellers list and Larson starts to travel for book signings. Unknowingly, both men attend a signing, which happens to feature a costumed event and an award ceremony.  In costume, both men and a woman head up to another floor and become stuck in an elevator.  The sparks begin to fly.

What will happen when Larson and Troy realize who the other masked man was in the elevator?  Will they continue to long for the other when they comprehend who it is?

A definite one click for all those who love a naughty MM romance!
