— The lumberjack of his dreams is now available for rent. —

Mr. B has always been a safe guy for Jo to crush on. He’s the cutest bearded lumber-god to salivate over. Add to that his friendly, outgoing personality, and Mr. B might just be the first guy Jo would be willing to kiss. Fortunately, Mr. B has been in a relationship for years, and Jo is no home-wrecker.

But when Mr. B breaks up with his partner and all of a sudden is single, available, and talks about his plans to be sexually adventurous, Jo isn’t so sure anymore if he has the guts to come out as bisexual.

After a sour breakup, Mr. B wants to show his ex that he’s independent, exciting, and can do very well without him. His best friend Jo is there to the rescue, and they come up with a great new business venture. One thing they lack to start their own line of artisanal boozy jams – money for the investment.

After a drunken brainstorming session, Mr. B finds a way to both gather the cash and show the middle finger to his ex. He will create a one of a kind Hipster Brothel – The Lumbersexual Experience – offering wood chopping lessons, pipe smoking, and a reclaimed wood bed where the magic happens. It’s bound to be a success… if only Mr. B can go through with it, because the mixed signals from Jo are making him wonder if his best friend is as straight as he always seemed.

Hipster Brothel is a sexy,sweet,gooey,dirty and kinky friends to lovers story of Mr.B the lumberjack bear and Jo his best friend. The story was right amount of dirty and right amount of gooey warm goodness. I simply loved it.

Mr.B after his breakup on a drunken brainstorming session comes up with the idea of a hipster brothel, a lumbersexual experience with all the bells and whistles. While Jo supports the idea in front of Mr.B, is against it in his mind cause he is having quiet a crush on him. What ensues is how Mr.B and Jo find that what they had wanted and needed was right in front of them all along. The story was amazing…!! I loved Mr.B. He is giant sweetheart and he made me fall in love with him instantly. I especially love the converted train cars, boozy jams and the whole lumbersexual persona. But what sets apart him is that he is a sweet emotional man underneath it all. Jo for all intents and purpose comes of as a little confusing in the beginning,especially some of his actions. But he figures it out in the end. I loved the way authors have explored their chemistry. It was equally dirty,hot and sweet. Mr.B stole my heart in the end. I loved their story and how they authors gave them their happy ending. And also I have to mention the cover. Dayum..!! The cover is too too too damn yummy..!!!

Hipster Brothel is a fun sweet kinky sweet emotional love story. I had a wonderful time spending time with Mr.B an Jo. Recommended to all M/M/ lovers.
