I fell in love with my best friend. The only problem? She thinks I am gay!
Fool Me Daddy by Allysa Hart and Rayanna Jamison – OUT NOW!
Gusband: A gay friend that a woman is as close to as a husband.Eli Van Horn has been my best friend since I was in pigtails and Mary Janes, and I’ve been in love with him for almost as long.
He’s the peanut butter to my jelly, the meat balls to my spaghetti, and the whipped cream on top of my hot fudge sundae.
He’s also 100% gay.
I’m sure of it. He has better fashion sense than me, had a poster of Justin Timberlake on his wall when we were teens, and lord, can that boy shop.
The only problem, he’s never actually come out to me. That’s weird, right?
Fool Me Daddy is Book 2 in a hot new Rom-Com series about a group of friends, bonded over their love of dirty books with drool-worthy heroes, who eventually get their own hot, hilarious, happily-ever-afters.
“Has he ever actually admitted to being gay?” Suzy questioned.
I shook my head. It was the same conversation we had every time Elias Van Horn came home to visit. I could almost quote it verbatim at this point. “You guys are ridiculous. All you have to do is have one conversation with the guy and you would know I’m right. But you’ve never talked to him. Most of you have never even met him. I don’t understand why y’all are so dead-set on arguing over his sexuality with me every time his name comes up.”
“It’s because you are obviously in love with him,” Anna announced.
“And because your gaydar is notoriously off,” Delia added.
“Right,” Tammy agreed. “It’s bad. It’s so bad. Remember Fred from HR? That boy was flaming like a bag of Cheetos and you still asked him out on a date.”
I blushed at the horrifying memory. “Leave Fred out of this. That has nothing to do with the situation at hand. I didn’t really know Fred, anyway. But, I know Eli almost better than I know myself. Trust me, he’s gay.”
I could already tell they weren’t anywhere close to dropping it when Staci spoke up. “But if you thought a gay man was straight, how big of a stretch is it really for you to think a straight man is gay? You could be wrong. I think you’re wrong.”
About the Authors
I am a full-time mom to a sassy, strong-willed, loveable little girl. Okay, so she is all me. I am on the wrong side of 30, and I have been married to my best friend for over eight years. Like most couples, we have our ups and downs, but I could not imagine doing life with anyone else by my side. We are Southern California transplants, currently residing in a very rural part of the east coast. I have two crazy dogs that I adore, even though they drive me out of my ever-loving mind, most days.
I have recently rediscovered my love of words and decided to become a writer. My first story is my heart and soul, and it reaches into the depths of all that is me. I also create covers, promos, and logos for authors. I have met some amazing friends on this journey that I now happily call family. Without my family members, whether biological or chosen, I would not be half the person I am today. Their constant love and support keep me afloat.

All she wanted was a quiet life…
Ria is a magnet for trouble. She’s on the run, living a secret life. She’s being blackmailed by an asshole.
And she’s pretty certain the newest Dom at Club Indulgence is a thief, a private investigator or a cop.
She’s not sure which is worse. And that is exactly why she should stay away from him. Too bad he’s an irresistible blend of geeky and alpha, gentle and stern, hot and hotter.
Yep, trouble just follows her around.He was the perfect undercover operative…
Everyone overlooked or underestimated him. This should be a simple op. Go in, find who was stealing money from Club Indulgence and leave.
Well, it might have been if not for a secretive sexy little sub with way too much attitude and eyes that had seen far too much.
She roused his protective instincts, she pulled at the Dominant inside him and her past was enough to make most men run.
But she’d do well to remember not to underestimate him.
