He was supposed to hurt him. Ruin him. Instead, he fell in love.

In the big, bad city, Eric West holds the reins. A mafia king, he is feared, ruthless, and obsessed with a man half his age.

Will, his favorite whore, is young, beautiful, and the only person to ever bring him to his knees.

Will is a man to kill for.
A man to change for.
But what if Will isn’t what he seems?

*** Broken News is a standalone M/M romance featuring age gap, detailed adult content, violence, and hurt/comfort.**

Sara Dobie Bauer, your words do things to my heart. Even a story like this, with murder and fists, I can’t get enough.

Eric is powerful and rich and he gets what he wants. And after seeing Will once at the bordello, he’s hooked in a way he’s never known.

Will is young and beautiful, but there’s more to him than just his body. He captivates Eric, and even though he’s just doing a job, Eric gets under his skin as well.

Secrets are told, blood is shed, love is made.

There are so many twists, so many edge of your seat moments, and so much heat in this single book, you won’t be able to put it down. It’s just beautiful.

Galley copy of Broken News provided by author in exchange of an honest review.


Reading has become such a huge part of my life as an adult. I love the escape, but I also try to take something from each story for myself. I am a lover of words. I love dialogue. I love a slow burn and a happy ever after. Favorite Authors: Garrett Leigh, Amy Lane, Mary Calmes, Lane Hayes, T.J. Klune, Roan Parrish, N.R. Walker, Cara Dee, Anyta Sunday
