Maybe the greatest happiness wasn't the rush he'd get from sleeping with a different man each night, but instead it was waking up to the sleepy morning smile of the person you'd been dreaming of.

Right from his introduction I had a feeling that Marcus was going to be my favorite of the bunch....and boy was I right.

Marcus is the wealthy owner of the popular gay nightclub, Sparks. He loves his best friends Julian and Zach, but doesn't share their feelings when it comes to r

Reading a Felice Steven's book is like having my favorite mug of hot chocolate. You just knew you gonna have the sweetness and the warmth.

We have met Marcus since Beyond the Surface. He is the manwhore among the trio and totally allergic towards love and fluff. Now that both his best friends Julian and Zach all settled down with their respective partners, they keep pestering him to grow up and settle down.

This was an oke read for me, but I wasn't wowed by it.

I've only read book 1 of this series and seeing as this is book 3, this one can be read as a stand alone. Book 1 is also were I was first introduced to Marcus and he seemed like an interesting character to me.

Marcus is the owner of a nightclub. He liked to enjoy life. He has the money and he has plenty of men. He's not looking for a relationship and seeing his two best friends being all lovy dovy with their partners makes him want to puke a

"Love was inescapable, indefinable, and sometimes ill-advised. It took you by the throat and shook you until your brain rattled, yet just as gently, cradled you in its loving arms."

Loved this book so hard ! Loved Marcus and Tyler even more!
And they're become my new favorite couple along with my Micah and Josh.
Another winner from Felice Stevens !

Second to None is easy read standalone though it may be more fun witnessing Marcus fall hard if you have been seen him throughout the series.
And lines like this will mean so much more:
“One day you’ll meet someone who’ll set your world spinning, and you won’t know how to stop it.”

Second to None is the story of nightclub owner Marcus Feldman and Tyler Reiss a man who has recently become an employee at Marcus’ club Sparks.

Review originally posted at Sinfully.

Marcus is the last single man in his group of friends and is happy to stay that way. He’s been there supporting them throughout their ups and downs and now he feels them trying to push him to change his ways and find someone just like they have. Deep down Marcus is sad and lonely, but he won’t admit to himself and certainly won’t concede that his friends are right.

Horrible parenting doesn’t come close to describing Marcus’ upbringing. Marcus’ cold, homophobic

Five Lillie-bugs for Marcus & Tyler

I couldn't wait for Marcus's story seeing as he's the man-slut of the bunch. Yet, I always felt that there was more to him than just his lascivious reputation.
After watching his two best friends find love and happiness, and as much as he was happy for them, Marcus vowed that he'd never let that happen to him; monogamy and relationships? No way. Since he was the owner of Sparks, one of NYC's hottest clubs, he had no problem finding the next warm body waitin
"Love, Marcus decided, seeing Tyler pressed between two men as he danced, was for the weak. Lucky for him, he was strong and focused."

This is Marcus' book, finally we get to see inside the head of the infamous playboy of our three friends who make up The Breakfast Club! I have been waiting for this story because I knew that when Marcus met his match the boy was going to fall hard! Try as he might, it happened before he even realized what happened. Felice Stevens created the perfect counterpart t

Each book I read by Felice Stevens is better than the last! So, it’s no wonder why I think Second to None is her best book yet. She has an amazing ability to make you feel her words! Each character clings to your heart like a tattoo! I’ve been waiting for Marcus’s story since book one. The violet eyed playboy had my undivided attention. And, as predicted, he tore me apart. Marcus IS the meaning, “Money can’t buy you everything.” The one thing he NEEDS in his life. The one thing he realizes he wa ...more

Second to None is the final book in the Breakfast Club series and it features Marcus Feldman and Tyler Reiss. I have to say that I am sad to see this series end. I have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know these guys. They have taken me on a fantastic ride, one I have enjoyed immensely. If you have read the prior books in the series, which you most definitely should, then you know that Marcus is the gorgeous, sexy, playboy, alpha male, night club owner, who does not believe in love at all, even th ...more

I was so excited to finally read Marcus' story. And I loved it! Tyler was just the kind of guy Marcus needed and the beginning of their relationship was all kinds of fun. Watching Marcus get close to Lillie made me a very happy camper. She was just the sweetest. I love that all the other couples played such a huge part of this book because I've missed them a bit. Weird, I know. These 2 really had to work for their relationship and I loved taking the journey with them.

Second to None is the third book in Felice Stevens’ Breakfast Club series. If you’re new to this series, one-click “Beyond the Surface” and “Betting on Forever” to meet Julian and Nick, and Zach and Sam. You’ll LOVE them. And then you’ll be ready… for Marcus.

Playboy Marcus, my Marcus. Yes, unapologetic slut (I do love those) Marcus knocked me off my feet. I knew he had a heart of gold, and I knew, just knew when it was his turn to find love. He would fall hardest of all. And did he ever, meeting

M/M. I probably should rate this 4.5 stars. A really good read about an owner of a nightclub who is determined to be a one night stand guy forever until he meets one of his club's new dancers who has no interest in anything but a long term relationship. The dancer was trained for Broadway but in desperate need of money, has turned to dancing in this bar, one step up from a strip club. But he makes good money and is a favorite of the audiences so he just dreams of Broadway and dances away.

Hands down this has to be my favorite story of the entire series. I loved the other 2, but I had a feeling I would love Marcus even more. I was right :)

While we got to learn more about Julian and Zach, I always wondered what makes Marcus the way he is. We learn so much about him in this story. No one really knows the type of childhood he had. I felt so bad for him. It's what made him the type of person he is. We have Tyler who is a new dancer at his club. His circumstances are heartbreaking too,

Marcus Feldman ist erfolgreich, vermögend, sieht gut aus. Und er führt ein einsames, leeres Leben. Eine Handvoll Freunde wie Julian und Zach sind ihm wichtig, für seine Angestellten trägt er Sorge. Doch mit seinen Eltern verbindet ihn nichts. Beziehungen geht er aus dem Weg und tiefere Gefühle verbietet er sich selbst. Während seines Zölibats (verlorene Wette), trifft er auf Tyler. Dieser ist ein neuer Tänzer in Marcus' Club und einfach nur faszinierend.

Nice to see Marcus grow up. Throughout the series Marcus has been the playboy, taking what and who he wants whenever he wants sure that he will never settle down. Here we begin to understand why and we get to see how he realizes he is worth loving and therefore finding love for himself. It is very cute how even after he has fallen he still puts up a fight - not with Taylor but with his friends.

So happy Marcus got his story. Tyler is perfect for him, and watching him slowly come to realize he was in love, becoming the man he was always meant to be, was perfection. Engaging and funny, heartwarming and so full of love, this was just the way I wanted and hoped it would go. Brilliant and Well Done!

Marcus. The eternal playboy never would you think he'd settle down! With his 3 months of forced celibacy almost over he is determined to get back to enjoying a different flavor every night, and at the top of the list is the newest dancer at his club, Tyler. So what happens when the man he wants say no? He fight of course! But this is one rabbit hole he never realized going down would change so much for him.

This is by far my favorite Felice Stevens book. Marcus is by far my favorite. There was such incredible warmth, sadness, happiness, and sexiness. If you don't at least develop tears once, something is not right!

Marcus owns the hottest gay club in New York City. He has a different man in his bed or wherever he can get him each night. He doesn't believe in love except for his love of sex. All of that changes when he meets Tyler. At first, he believes that all he wants from Tyler is a night of hot

4.5 Stars

I knew from the beginning of book one, Beyond the Surface, that I would love Marcus’ story and I was not wrong. He initially came across as a playboy, arrogant, selfish, and self-centered. It was all fun and games to Marcus, everything was his way or the highway, with nothing but one-night stands and nary a chance in hell that he would ever commit to only one man, ever. Monogamy and love was great for his friends, Julian and Zach, but you can count him out. No way, no thanks, and don’t

This author is like gold to me. I have really enjoyed other books by her. That's why when I got this, I devoured it! (Other books sit on my Kindle for months, neglected.)

Marcus and Tyler were cute, sweet, and sexy.

I wanted to love it but.. they both did things that were contradictory and that inconsistency in the story annoyed me.

When both characters got out of their own heads, then the sweetness and the chemistry shined through. Marcus and Tyler do scorch up the pages a

You can read this as a stand alone because each book in this series features a different couple. But you do see the previous characters in this series in this story and you might be a little lost so I would suggest reading the previous books in this series first before this one.

So I do I have to be honest and this is where I am going to say this was not my favorite book in the series which pains me to say because I have loved this series. But please do not get me wrong I still really liked this

This is the third book in the Breakfast Club series and my most eagerly awaited. Marcus was the one character from the series that has always held my attention, knowing that his outward charismatic persona was hiding a whole lot of pain inside. Oh yes this complex man finally unpeels those layers and lets that special man in. That man being Tyler.

Marcus is the owner of the hot gay nightclub in town, Sparks. He is the ultimate life and soul of the party who draws everyone in with his charisma. H

I think this is my favorite book of the series so far ... It is wonderfully written and I love that Marcus found someone like Tyler to help him see that he could find happiness and still be himself. Their partnership is perfect. Each of them needed learned to trust and love.

Best of the series. Really liked all the setup in the beginning, the first couple sex scenes were emotionally intense and meaningful and transforming. But the author seems to generally use sex too much to express emotions that after awhile it becomes ineffective and the sex just seems like sex. Because sometimes less is more. Marcus was my favorite of the Breakfast Club boys and the most complex. Sexy, vulnerable, snarky, dominant and a little alpha and possessive, but a generous guy inside, who ...more

I have always been a romantic at heart. I believe that while life is tough, there is always a happy ending around the corner, My characters have to work for it, however. Like life in NYC, nothing comes easy and that includes love.

I live in New York City with my husband and two children and hopefully soon a cat of my own. My day begins with a lot of caffeine and ends with a glass or two of red wine
