They call me the Charmer. My best friend Wade tells me it’s because I’m suave and mysterious. But he doesn’t know my secret. The one I’ve kept hidden from him for twelve years. The one I will never reveal to him — Rhys

They call me The Brute. Probably because of my physique. And, let’s face it, because I’m a total dick at times. So Rhys likes to tell me

The proposition is a hot as hell Male/Male short story romance. Business partners Wade and Rhys are successful together. The two friends think they know each other well, but one night a year ago changes everything. Now there is a strange friction between them and the sexual tension is steaming. One knows he’s gay the other can’t stop thinking about his best friend. When the truth comes out their relationship will never be the same again.

This read is sassy, passionate and witty. It has fire in i

This was a book I picked up based solely on the blurb. One, I love a good friends-to-lovers story, and this promised me one. Two, I enjoy reading m/m. I don't read a lot of it and I'm picky but then again, the blurb really got me excited.

Wade and Rhys are best friends and business partners. Rhys however has been in love with Wade for a long time. The problem he doesn't know about his feelings nor does he know that Rhys is gay. This was a great set up that got me really excited. Unfortunately, t

Amy's Review

The sizzling sexual tension and hotter than hot sex scenes in this book were amazing.  I don't know what it is about an M/M book that just does it for me but, this one nailed it.  I eagerly devoured every word as Wade and Rhys discovered one another's bodies.  It was some of the sexiest scenes I have ever read.

The problem is beyond that the book just didn't really do it for me.  The majority of the book was based on what went on between the sheets.  I needed more of a storyline than

The Proposition by A.M. Salinger was a scorching & wildly entertaining read. It tells the beautiful story of unrequited love between two best friends, Rhys Damon & Wade Tucker.

Rhys has been in love with his best friend since they became college roommates, years ago. Wade has always been a little intrigued by his secretive best friend & business partner.

So what happens when Wade unintentionally finds out that Rhys is attracted him? What happens when Wade realizes he’s checking o

GFY is one of my favorite tropes ever. When it's best friends turned lovers? Even better.

Going in, I hadn't read any other books in this series. In fact I've never read this author. The blurb sent to the blog email roped me in though.

This book was on the shorter side, and in fact that's one of the things I didn't like about it. I wish we could have gotten more length that came with more depth of the characters.

Overall though I really liked the steam, humor, and the side characters that left m

The Proposition is book 6 in the Nights series and while it can be read as a standalone, some of the characters from the other books have cameos in this one. Plus, really, if you enjoy Erotica, these books are scorching hot and you're missing out if you haven't read them.

I loved Rhys. He'd been in love with Wade for 12 of the 16 years they've been friends, always certain that he didn't have a chance, at least until the moment when Wade finds him out on a semi-date with a guy that could

This is the sixth book in the Nights series but can be read as a standalone as I had not read any other books in this series. It is also a novella.

Wade and Rhys have been best friends for over twelve years but Wade did not know that Rhys was gay or had the hots for him until he finds Rhys getting off shouting Wade’s name. Fast forward one year and the tension that has abounded since that night is finally out in the air.

The much awaited Wade and Rhys's story is finally here! I had been very eager to read about them ever since they grace the pages earlier in the series. We have no idea what went on between these two business partner, but the sexual tension is undeniable. I'm looking forward to a very heated hate sex.

The heat factor in this book was cranked up at level 10 from the beginning. Like seriously, no breathing room whatsoever before they went at it again and again. The marathon sex is just crazy good. I

The Proposition is hot and sexy and emotional in a way that I was not expecting. Rhys and Wade's story is truly a friends-to-lovers tale. The beauty of the story and in A.M. Salinger's writing is that I really felt all of Rhys' trepidation and hope and longing, as well as Wade's desperation and intensity. This was my first book by the author and even though it read great as a standalone, I was so impressed and enthralled by her words that I want to read the rest of the series. 4 out of 5 wine gl ...more

This short 90min story is sexy as hell!

Rhys and Wade are business partners and best friends.

Rhys has been secretly in love with straight his friend since their college roommate days. Not only has he been hiding his feelings from Wade but he’s been hiding his sexuality as well.

One night a drunken Wade stumbles to his friends apartment to sleep off the alcohol when he gets an eyeful of Rhys in his bed — and calling “Wade” when he climaxes.

This trope has been done countless times before. Nothing ne

Let me start by saying I had no idea this was a novella, I must have totally missed it while residing the synopsis lol even after reading it, it didn't feel like the novellas I have typically read. Was it a super fast read? Yes. Did it feel like it was missing parts or needed more? No. I felt it was perfect for Rhys and Wade's story, and that is coming from someones whose never read any of the other books of the series and has never met these char

Independent reviewer for Archaeolibrarian, I was gifted my copy of this book.

We met Rhys and Wade in book 3, but I would say you don't need to read the other books before this one. You don't NEED to, but you'd get a better enjoyment of these if you did. And this is book 6, so get a-reading!

Wade and Rhys are partners in the firm that Gabe works for. They've know each other some 16 years. Rhys has lusted over and loved Wade for 12 of those years, and Wade has lusted over Rhys for just 12 months. 1

The Proposition is the sixth in the Nights series by the talented A.M. Salinger. The Proposition can be read as a standalone, because I did, but I wish I could have read the series from the beginning! Rhys and Wade have been best friends and business partners for years. Rhys has been harboring feelings for Wade for twelve long years. Wade is a ladies man and never thought about his best friend in a sexual way until one night he sees him alone and in the throes of passion. Wade can't get that sig ...more

Whoa, it's getting hot in here. The angst and super smoking sex in this novella will get you all fired up when finished. Although this is book 6 in the series, I was able to jump in and read as a standalone and not feel completely in the dark.

Rhys and Wade have been friends for over 12 years. Now business partners living in Tokyo. Over the past year the relationship between the friends has been a little off, some strange tension that can't really be explained. Well that is to anyone looking in,

Rhys Damon is not happy about the turn of events. Wade Tucker is the man in charge. Expect some graphic conversations. Maybe you don’t like books that are very explicit, than you may need to rethink whether you want to read or not. I was impressed with how our author treated her characters – each scene felt very real. If I had one downside it would be the way Wade didn’t seem to be conflicted about the change in their relationship - especially if you look at his past. Even though these are two b ...more

Number six in this short novella series. This time we have Wade and Rhys. Unlike the previous stories, Wade and Rhys have been friends for a long time but until recently Wade has been unaware that Rhys is gay and he himself has been straight. After walking in on Rhys one day, Wade has started to develop some kind of feelings for his friend and things have become very strained between them.
I do enjoy friends to lovers stories, in this one though Wade seemed a lot keener than Rhys which I wasn't

Since this was my first ever A.M. Salinger read, I was pleasantly surprised by how much I loved it. Not many people can do justice to M/M but the author did so good.

Wade and Rhys have been friends for years. While Rhys knows everything about Wade, he hides the most important part of his identity from his best friend. That's not the only secret he's keeping. Rhys has been in love with Wade and has spent every moment making sure Wade never finds out. But what if Wade already knows? What's Rhys goi

This novella was just one scorchingly hot read! From the prologue to the end, you'll be consumed by the lust set off when these 2 best friends finally take the jump and get down and dirty.

Rhys has been pining over his straight best friend for 12 years! To cover his feelings and tge fact that he is even gay, he spends his nights with random men to scratch the itch. He has no idea that Wade is hiding his own secret!

I am never one to pass on an M/M romance. Seriously, when I see a new M/M story I nab it up right away. Plus an M/M book where friends turn to lovers? Yeah, I HAD to grab this book ASAP.

The Proposition starts off with Wade coming over to Rhy's house drunk and discovering his best friend is not only gay but also into him. A year goes by after this discovery and Wade is struggling with anger and hurt that his friend didn't tell him.

He doesn't know that Wade accidentally saw him one night pleasuring himself and yelling Wade’s name as he finished.

The Proposition by AM Salinger is such a steamy read!

When I first started reading this book, I was unsure if I was going to fall in love with it. The characters did not grab my attention on the first page, and the storyline seemed overdone. But... you know what? I kept reading. I finished those first few pages, and ended up devouring the rest of the book.

Rhys and Wade definitely take the steam and tension to the next level. Their hotness both individually and for each other is something of anot

I am a sucker for a good MM romance and hadn't read one for a while so I figured I'd give this new to me author a shot. I liked the premise, the blurb had me thinking heck yea this is gonna be awesome and hot.

Well the hot part held true. There was a lot of sex. A LOT. But other than that, Rhys and Wade's story fell a little short. Maybe it was because I hadn't read the other books in the series and I was missing something but I don't think that's it.

The Proposition was an enjoyable short read. A friends to lovers story it was full of chemistry, hot scenes and angst. The author writes a very sexy scene, which was just what I was in the mood for.

Rhys and Wade have been best friends for sixteen years but Rhys has been hiding his true self for the whole time. He has always worried that Wade would reject him if he showed his true self. Nothing could of prepared him for how wrong he is.

I love a good MM romance and this one doesn't disappoint!
Wade has a life altering reaction to his bestie Rhys and it takes him feeling jealous to realise what it all means.
Poor Rhys has had a one sided love affair for years and can't come to terms when it becomes a reality.
The sex is this book is HOT! I want that kind of intenseness in my life!
As with all relationships they have ups and downs but it is a HEA story.
