Ten years ago, I kissed my best friend.

Six years ago, my life changed, and I went from being an unknown kid from a small town to a world-renowned rock star. Before leaving Gaspar, I told Ali we’d still be together. I made promises I didn’t keep, and I lied over and over again. I threw our plans out the window and made a life for myself.

I’ve barely had time to go home, because touring keeps me away. We haven’t been in touch in years, but after this tour, I’m heading home to find the only person who knows my deepest, darkest secret, and beg for forgiveness.

Ten years ago, I kissed my best friend, and his name is Alejandro Barerra. My Ali.

He may never forgive me for the broken promises or for breaking his heart, and I’m afraid he’ll never want to talk to me again, but he’s the only one who knows the real me, and I’m determined to win him back. Even if it means risking it all.

Risking It All by Isabel Lucero
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

I spent much of my time reading this story either swooning, crying, or fanning myself! Outstanding job!

If I’m being honest, I’m a little emotional even now, weeks after finishing, trying to write a review. The pressure that society puts on people to explain their sexual orientation is baffling to me because it isn’t about the person’s sexual orientation, it’s about fear and lack of understanding in most of the cases. To be clear, I’m referring to society’s fear. They fear what they do not know and understand, so they lash out. Baffling. It hurts my heart. Discrimination of any kind hurts my brain. My emotions are running amok right now.

Download this book if for no other reason than to read Merrick’s Statement. It will affect you. #TRUST

Okay, that was the heavy stuff. Now lets’ talk about this book for a minute. The book hits the spot on all fronts. Aside from the inherent depth of emotion that comes with such a storyline, Isabel Lucero doubled down and just went all in! The flashback alone from their past are enough to burst your heart! They were woven into the story with perfection; exactly at the moment they needed to be. It allowed me to not just know what happened but feel it as well. Obviously, that has a lot to do with the author’s voice and style. I can honestly say this entire series has been perfection!

This story wasn’t just emotionally charged. It was sexually charged as well. That’s how I like my MM romances; dirty, gritty, and explicit! And she delivered tenfold!!

Do yourselves a favor and invest a little time in the Kingston Brothers. I promise you will not regret it!

Risking It All by Isabel Lucero
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Alejandro (Ali) and Merrick fell in love when they were teenagers. Merrick let fame go to his head and left Ali behind. His rockstar persona taking over his life. When he realizes what he’s given up, it may be to late.

I liked the back and forth between the past and the present. It filled in the story and gave me a good background for their relationship.

I felt Merrick’s fear at coming out. Ali’s pain at being left behind and feeling that he just wasn’t quite good enough for the truth was well done. I also liked the support from the important people in their lives. Nice book.

I haven’t read the other books in the series but had no issues with feeling lost. Good as a standalone.

EXCERPT

Sprawled naked across the bed, I watch Merrick as he grips the bottle of Johnnie Walker and pours a small amount of the amber liquid on my chest. The alcohol drips off both sides, and travels down the middle of my stomach.

Merrick leans over me and licks the whiskey from my skin. “Mm,” he moans, gazing up at me with hooded, lust-filled eyes. “This is the best threesome we could have.”

“The only threesome we’ll have.”

He chuckles. “Someone doesn’t like to share.”

He crawls on top of me, straddling my hips while wearing nothing but his boxers. “Open your mouth for Johnnie.” I do as he says and he carefully pours a sips worth of the alcohol into my mouth. “Now open up for me.”

Merrick frees his erection through the slit in the boxers and scoots up, running the tip across my bottom lip.

I open my mouth and swirl my tongue around the circumference of his cockhead before he pushes in farther.

“Goddamn,” he groans.

He fucks my mouth for a minute before climbing off me. “Mm,” I moan, licking my lips.

“Who tastes better? Me or Johnnie?” he asks teasingly.

“I’m not sure,” I reply, reaching down to stroke my cock. “I may need another taste test.”

Merrick shoots me an unamused look before wrapping his lips around the head of the bottle and swallowing down a mouthful of whiskey.

“Come suck the taste off my tongue,” he commands.

I scramble up and get on my knees, capturing his face in my hands, and plunge my tongue in his mouth. I suck his whiskey-flavored tongue into my mouth, eliciting a low moan from his throat.

“Lay down,” I tell him.

He lifts a brow but lies his large body across my mattress. I yank his boxers down, revealing his impressive erection. I keep to the side of him and steal the bottle from his hand, and pour a generous amount of the liquid onto his stomach. The man is so cut, the alcohol pools in the crevice between his abs.

I drop down and slurp the liquid into my mouth, taking some time to lick up the trails that traveled a little lower.
