Hotter Than Hot
By Ariella Zoelle
Suntastic Fun, Book 2
Baxley has been teasing Callahan for years about wanting to be with him. When Callahan finds out his best friend is actually serious about being with him, his curiosity gets the better of him. Why should being straight stop him from having fun with his sexy best friend?
Baxley is a lot of things: an awesome friend, a relentlessly shameless flirt, a little too attractive, and way too tempting when I’m straight. All of his heated teasing is starting to get to me, making me wonder if maybe indulging my curiosity might be worth blurring the boundaries of our friendship for a night. But what if it’s so good that I want a repeat experience? Am I really ready for that?
He promises me an experience that’s hotter than hot, but can he actually prove he’s not all talk? And am I really ready to discover that I like what he’s offering me?
When everything about Callahan lights my insides up like a fireworks finale on the Fourth of July, I knew from the moment I first saw him that he was the one for me. The only thing stopping me from making him mine is that he’s straight. But that excuse goes out the window when he kisses me, like he’s been dying for a taste of me for years. Did I die and go to Heaven or did all of my dreams just come true?
If he’s ready to take a chance on me, I’m not just going to show him a good time. I’m going to do everything I can to make him fall in love with me. Could I really be so lucky to win my best friend’s heart and make him my boyfriend?
Hotter Than Hot is the second and final book in the Suntastic Fun duet. This novella features a friends to lovers, bisexual awakening, no angst romance. If you love cute sweetness, sexy fun, and scorching-hot banter that will make you laugh and swoon, you’ll adore this satisfying HEA without cliffhangers. Each book can be read as a standalone but is best enjoyed in order.
Hotter Than Hot was originally published as Turn Up the Heat for the Boys of Summer M/M giveaway. A new epilogue has been added for publication.
Chapter 7: Baxley
“I’m yours, whether you want me or not. That’s as true now as it has been for the past three years,” I said.
I could feel the heated flush of Callahan’s cheek on my shoulder. “It’s pretty safe to say I want you, too. I need more of you, more of that, more of everything.”
They were words I had always hoped to hear. “Then I’m yours.”
“Not to ruin the moment—because I know I should kiss you after saying something that romantic—but I still don’t have the energy to move after such an intense orgasm.”
I laughed hard at how precious he was. “That’s fine. Being blissed-out is an acceptable excuse. I’ll accept a rain check under the circumstances.”
He tilted his head to press a kiss to my shoulder. “I’m sorry I made us wait so many years for this. I don’t know what else I can say other than I’m a dumbass who should be ashamed of himself.”
I caressed his hair to soothe away his concerns. “There’s no reason to feel bad. The chase made it even more satisfying when you finally gave in to me.”
“Does that mean you won’t chase me anymore now that you have me?”
I laughed at his mistaken assumption. “If you think for one minute that I’m ever going to stop pursuing you, then you don’t know me that well.”
“So you’re saying I should expect the same teasing, only we get sexual satisfaction out of it once we’re alone?”
His question made me grin. “Provided I can wait that long. I’m sure Lachlan and Alessandro wouldn’t mind us engaging in a little foreplay while they’re busy enjoying themselves.”
“We are not doing this in front of them!” He sounded aghast in his protest, which only caused me to laugh harder.
“Fine. To preserve your modesty, we’ll compromise by claiming a bedroom in his beach house for ourselves to escape to when we can’t keep our hands to ourselves.”
He scoffed at my idea. “We’re not doing that.”
“I’ll remind you about this conversation the next time I give you a hard-on while all four of us are in the pool together.”
Callahan hid his face against my shoulder with a pained groan. “Please don’t. I’ll die of embarrassment.”
“Hey, that’s between you and your dick,” I teased him. “I can’t help it if you find me so sexy that it wants to come out to play.”
“Do you have any idea how annoying it is that I want to scoff about you and sexy not belonging in the same sentence, but I can’t do that now?” He huffed in irritation. “You play dirty.”
“Yeah, because it’s more fun.” I let my hand sneak down to cop a feel of his ass. His squeak of surprise made me laugh. “You’ll see.”
“Right now, I’m more concerned about how dirty your sheets are because of us,” he grumbled. “Not to mention the mess I’m lying in.”
I grinned as his clean-bean gene kicked in. “There’s no point in changing them when I’m not done with you yet.”
He groaned in protest. “Sorry, but I’m down for the count.”
“Sure, at the moment. Later is a different story.”
His incredulous giggle made me smile, even though I was serious. Now that I knew he wanted me, there was no holding back.

Suntastic Fun, Book 1
After another disappointing breakup, Lachlan is tired of dating all the wrong women. Even though he’s straight, his curiosity starts to get the better of him. What would it be like to be with his gay best friend, Alessandro?
I’m sick of wasting my time with women who love my money more than me. The only person who has ever cared about me and not my fortune is my flirtatious best friend, Alessandro. We always joke about me switching teams when I get bored with being straight, but lately, I’ve stopped laughing it off and started considering it as a very tempting possibility.
After breaking up with another gold-digging girlfriend, why shouldn’t I cheer myself up by having a little sexy fun with Alessandro? After all, it might be hot, right?
I’ve always had to joke about my attraction to Lachlan because I know he’ll never take my feelings seriously when he’s straight. But he shockingly asks me to show him what he’s been missing by only being with women. This is my big chance to convince him that there could be more between us than just friendship. How can I say no if it will make my dreams come true?
If he wants me to show him a good time, I’m more than happy to teach him a lesson about why I can be more to him than the women who don’t deserve him. But can I make him fall in love with me for real?
