Regret.

I’m a man living with regret. It eats at me night and day.

Eights years ago, I ran from Reagan instead of facing the music. I was sure he would shut me out if he knew the truth, so I beat him to the punch. I left and never looked back.

Or at least I tried not to.

To this day, Reagan is always in the back of my mind, trying to make me remember the fun we had. I alwa

Drummer Sawyer is gay but hasn't come out publicly, except for a few close friends and family members. He ran from his best friend Reagan because of how he felt for him.

As both struggle with their feelings for each other, they also struggle with keeping their relationship secret. Reagan's company is not very tole

This is the first book I have read by this author, it won’t be the last. This book pulled me in from the beginning. I couldn’t put it down. Sawyer is the drummer for Jaded Ivory. He is hiding a secret. Reagan is a lawyer and a childhood friend of Sawyers. These characters have amazingly hot chemistry. I didn’t read the first book in this series but I plan to soon. I can’t wait for the next book!

4.5 Stars!

You'd never guess Ride Me is Ms. Brooke's first MM book, everything from the characterization to the progression of Sawyer and Reagan's relationship appealed to my love for this genre.

While I'm aware that GFY/OFY is not for everyone, the author did a fantastic job showing us the gradual changes in Reagan's feelings towards Sawyer in a realistic manner. Reagan and Sawyer were smoking hot together and the sex scenes were not only sexy but passionate and intense. My favorite part might h

I loved the first book, and knew I would like this book, but wasn't sure it could top Rock Me. It did. I love Sawyer and Reagan's story. It was such a good read.

Instead of telling his best friend he was in love with him, or even that he was gay, Sawyer left and started fresh, finding himself in the process. He was so sure what Reagan's response would be, he cut him off.

Reagan spent years wondering what he did wrong for Sawyer to leave like he did. When he finally tracks him down, noticing things

When I read the blurb for Ride Me it definitely intrigued me. I had read one previous book by the same author and enjoyed it, so the fact that Ride Me was a rock star romance and M/M, I was all over it. I enjoy the author's writing style and the characters that she creates. All though this is book two in the series, it can be read as a standalone.

Sawyer has spent the last several years trying to build his career as the drummer for the up and coming rock band, Jaded Ivory. His one regret is walk

The combination of a rockstar romance, a version of second chance, and coming out for both main characters made Ride Me a strong draw for me as a fan of M/M romance. This is the first book I’ve read from this author, and though it is the second book in the Jaded Ivory series, I can definitely say you do not have to read the first book in order to enjoy this one; Ride Me stands on its own just fine.

There is a solid cast of characters here, not just the main ones, but with the rest of the band mem

I liked it a lot.

This is the first book I've read by Rebecca Brooke and I really enjoyed it. Ride Me is book 2 in the Jaded Ivory series but it can be read as a standalone. I didn't read book one and didn't feel lost or like I'd missed anything by reading only book two.

Jaded Ivory is an up and coming rock band and Sawyer is the drummer living the life he'd always dreamed of. Only one thing is missing – the best friend he left behind seven years ago without any explanation.

This is the first book I have read by Rebecca Brooke and it certainly won’t be the last this may be book 2 in the Jaded Ivory Series but it can be read as a stand-alone because I haven’t read book 1 and it took nothing away from Sawyers story, I loved it.
Sawyer the hot drummer with Jaded Ivory has a secret and he is living a lie...he left his home town and his best friend Reagan right after high school because he couldn’t bear his friend to hate him because of his feelings now many years later

Holy hotness, I do love a romance with a muso in it, double that when it's the drummer... this is a second chance romance, Sawyer is the drummer for one of the hottest bands of the world, and Reagan is the only man he's ever loved. Sawyer is gay, and he loved his best friend, but the day they were leaving for college together Sawyer up and disappeared. Fast forward 8 years and Reagan turns up at a meet and greet to get some answers. He got that and a whole lot more. The reason why Sawyer left is ...more

Ok. Here it is.

Rebecca Brooke is a new to me author, and I love taking a chance so I was given an advance reader copy in exchange for an honest review only.

The story is simple, kind of second chancy in that Sawyer and Reagan were friends when they were younger, but...nothing more. Unrequited love if you will.

The two are reunited as adults, and of course, from there, the friendship is rekindled which then leads to more.

In order to be completely honest in my review, I want to explain something. My

OMG I FLOVED every moment of this book, I am seriously lacking the words that will do this book justice, and I have no idea where to start my review, but here goes nothing.

This is Sawyer's story (the drummer of Jaded Ivory), this is a m/m book (I started reading this with a little hesitation as that is not usually something I enjoy reading, but this book was hotter than I could have ever imagined, there may have been a few parts where I needed to stop and fan myself).

This is a very nice gay for you book by Rebecca Brooke and second in the Jaded Ivory series.
This book features Sawyer, the drummer of Jaded Ivory and his best friend from age 7 , Reagan.
Sawyer is in love with Reagan since they were 16, but afraid of his friends reaction he just vanishes without a word and leaves his friend behind, wondering whatever he did wrong for his friend to cut him like that.
Years later when Jaded Ivory starts to gain more and more popularity Reagan sees a poster for a mee

I love to read contemporary romance. I love a good Rebecca Brooke story too. When this author said it was going to be different with an M/M book, I jumped on it. Some are hit, some are miss. This is a hit. A 5 star story that was full of emotions. Of course there are plenty of steamy scenes to burn down the roof but there was heart above all.

Sawyer is the drummer in a band and he’s gay but he doesn’t want no one to know for fear to be rejected and that it would affect the band negatively. He’s

This is the first book I’ve read by this author an I really enjoyed the story. Now I need to get more.

Sawyer and Reagan have been best friends since they were young. Sawyer disappeared on the day they were suppose to leave for college. He has some secrets that he doesn’t want to tell Reagan. He’s scared of the rejection of his best friend. So he goes on with his life. Or at least he tries to.

Reagan has never forgotten Sawyer. He’s always wanted to know what happened and where he went too. Then

When Reagan found out that Sawyer was doing a meet and greet with his band Jaded Ivory, he was bound and determined he'd be there. He wanted answers. Answers from Sawyer as to why he walked away without a word eight years ago. The last person Sawyer figured he'd every see while doing a meet and greet with his band Jaded Ivory was Reagan. The same Reagan he's been in love with since he was 16. This book pushed two buttons for me. First, Reagan and Sawyer have a history together and secondly is th ...more

I love this second chance, best friends to lovers story. Great storyline that captivated me right from the beginning and I could not put this book down. It's been about eight years since Sawyer has seen Reagan, but as soon as he sees him again, all of the old feelings come back. But what do you do when you're in love with your "straight" best friend! Then again, Reagan doesn't seem to be that "straight" after all. It's wonderful to see how their relationship develops and how selfless Sawyer is w ...more

Great read! First time author for me (and I didn't read any other books in the series) and I definitely enjoyed the ride. Sawyer and Reagan get another chance to be together, having the courage to come out. This is a mix of trying to come out to not only your family and friends but you add in the famous angle and you get a complex and interesting read. Loved their connection and chemistry, hot and romantic slow burn that had me hooked. Can't wait for the next. I voluntarily reviewed an 'Advance ...more

Oh my! I can’t remember the last time I read a M/M romance. This author creates these two beautiful characters so perfectly that you don’t see a same sex couple, you see two people completely in love. I was easily lost in the lives of Sawyer and Reagan. I wanted more with every turn of the page. The angst and turmoil they go through had me in tears.

I easily read Ride Me as a standalone but now I will be going back to read book one. This band is a true family and I can’t wait to learn more of th

This is the second book in this series and can be read as a standalone. Sawyer and Reagan were best friends, and when Sawyer leaves without explaining to Reagan that he loves him, it leaves unanswered questions behind. Working hard as a drummer for Jaded Ivory, Sawyer came face to face with Reagan. Can Sawyer finally be honest with Reagan? No spoilers; this is a must read for all rock star and M/M fans! This is a well written story, which had me intrigued and hooked throughout. I look forward to ...more

I really enjoyed getting into Sawyers story and Rebecca Brooke gave us a great MM story that is more than just a steamy story (although, yes it had some). It was truly a story of finding yourself and of yes -- love is love. When one person has never even thought of someone of the same sex but finds them inexplicably drawn to another of the same sex, how do you reconcile those feelings with what you think you know about yourself. It is a story about letting others in and letting them see the auth ...more

In Ride Me we get hot rockers, plenty of angst, and amazing romance. Sawyer and Reagan had that once in a lifetime love that you fought with all your heart and soul to hold onto. Oh, what a wonderful ride this book was. I can't wait to see how the rest of the members of Jaded Ivory's stories unfold.

For a first mm book, this was a really good read and if the author does more I’m definitely in!
There were a couple of editing/proofing issues that sort of pulled me out of the zone ( reason for 4*) but overall a good holiday read.
