This series is getting better and better every time. This one was amazing.
Blaze is the leader of the mc the Hedonist, when he meets Lake for the second time Lake acts, like the brat he is, as if he doesn’t recognize Blaze.
Blaze is intrigued...

How Lake acts and how he really is is far apart. When Lake gets homeless he can live at the Hedonist clubhouse.
Lake has a hurtful past and is like a frightened little fragile rabbit.
It isn’t easy and Lake will be Blazes first man but Blaze feels committed

This is third book in the series and hopefully not the last. I liked this better than the previous book. I’m not sure about the title or cover, though. The cover doesn’t scream Motorcycle Club, and I even think the title is misleading. “Bossman” has me thinking something business related, and that it is a employer/employee relationship.

Blaze is the president of the MC, and he does run his own porn production company, so that’s where that comes from. Lake is a waiter/dancer at a gay club one of

This book was great and I really feel like this series just keeps getting better with each book. I’ve loved all three so far.

Lake was a cute character. I really felt for him with everything he had to go through. All the people who try to take advantage and do horrible things knowing he’s smaller than them. But he is definitely out as much of a victim as he sees himself being. He’s a fighter and all of his stubbornness really shines bright, showing us how determined he is to make it on his own w

As I've come to expect from Rebecca James' Hedonist Series, The Brat and the Bossman is a riveting and complex romance.

It's always fun when a man discovers he's not as straight as he thought, which is exactly what happens to Blaze. He's the tough owner of a porn studio and is the leader of the Hedonists MC.

When he meets Lake, Lake is close to hitting rock bottom. Lake certainly can't survive much longer at the pace he's working, and with all the people he's in contact with daily.

3 stars!

"Hurt/Comfort Style MM Romance"

This is the 3rd book in the Hedonist series that follows members of the Hedonist motorcycle club. I nabbed an ARC for this book and voluntarily reviewed it.

This book is about Blaze, leader of the MC, and Lake, a hot mess who is floundering out in the real world, as they navigate life dealing with heaping piles of baggage (make sure you read the trigger warning at the beginning). Can they sift through enough to make a lasting love connection?

I wanted to like this one, I really did. Lake and Blaze were pretty sweet together. I hope that Axel and Caleb are next.

However, I did not enjoy the porn scenes. I found that reading about porn sometimes makes me uncomfortable, because I always worry about whether or not the actors are really doing this because they want to do it (which I hope so! And am pretty sure most are because they are free as fuck in their sexuality and sex positive and that’s great) or doing it because they have no choi

The Brat and the Bossman by Rebecca James is the third book in The Hedonist series. And let me start of by saying that this series is getting even better with each book released.

Lake and Blaze are amazing characters. And their story is a good one. I love how Blaze goes through his self discovery and realizes that he may not be as straight as he always thought, but its sweet that hes finding himself wanting more from Lake than he ever wanted from his previous girlfriends. Lake was kicked out fro

I should complain that these books are bad for my health. I stay up all night reading and not wanting to put them down. Like the last one I read this story in one sitting. In the first book we met Blaze, the president of the Hedonists. We knew he was struggling with something but what it was we did not know. His caring personality has held true through all the books and shows itself here again. Although he is not a violent man, he will take the role when needed. Blaze met Lake in the last book. ...more

I liked this one so much more than the first two. Lake and Blaze just worked for me, and I love a tension filled enemies to lovers (even if the enemies part doesn’t last very long). There is a lot going on with their individual arcs, their relationship, the club business, and an external threat that keeps rearing up, and it does get a bit convoluted at times. A lot is wrapped up in this one, and it’s done fairly satisfactory. Lots of intense chemistry that was extremely hot, and I love how patie ...more

This is the third and most recent of the Hedonist series which follows the Hedonists motorcycle club. Straight-ish club president Blaze is attracted to and becomes protective of Lake, whose rich parents kicked him out for being gay. Lake's barely getting by and Blaze takes him in to the club. Lake's prickly and bratty, but it's mostly defense mechanisms. Mostly. Blaze realizes he's not as straight as he once thought, and wants a serious relationship with Lake, who doesn't really trust anyone. I' ...more

I find myself devouring this series and don’t ever want it to end. I need and can’t wait for more.

Blaze is the leader of the MC. He goes through girlfriends as fast as they can say commitment. Things change when he meets Lake. However their first meeting didn’t go so well. Lake is struggling. He working many jobs and barely surviving.

Blaze is going to take care of lake and protect him no matter what. Lake needs to let others in to break his hard exterior and when this happens with Blaze it’s g

In the third installment of this series, we finally get to see Blaze realize that he might not be as straight as he had thought. Lake is simply trying to get by working as much as possible and trying to not let his past control him. As these two grow closer and chemistry takes effect, we get to watch both of them grow and become stronger together than they are apart.

Great addition to series

I have really enjoyed this series and this is another great book. Learning more about Lake’s story really pulled my heart strings. I was so happy to see how Blaze & Lake found their way together.
