Aced by Ella Frank & Brooke Blaine Blog Tour


Ace Locke is Hollywood’s hottest action hero. Women across the globe fling their panties in his direction, but Ace isn’t interested in those—he’s more of a boxer briefs kind of guy. Specifically, those of the nearly naked male model on a billboard he drives past every day.

Though he recently made headlines for his public coming out, Ace is wary about pursuing a relationship, fearing what the court of public opinion will do to his career. But there’s something in the model’s expression that intrigues him and has him wondering what if?

Dylan Prescott just scored his biggest modeling campaign yet. One that has him plastered all over L.A. in not much more than what he was born with. And when he’s cast in Ace’s latest blockbuster, it puts him in close proximity to his ultimate fantasy.

Outwardly confident, Dylan has no problem with his sexuality or his pretty-boy looks, and uses both to his advantage to get what he wants. And what he wants is the impossible—Ace Locke.

From Ella Frank’s Sunset Cove series and Brooke Blaine’s L.A. Liaisons series comes a scorchingly hot novel that blends humor, passion, and romance.

What happens when these two worlds collide?

“WAS THIS YOUR plan?” he asked, his voice low and husky. “Invite me over…get me in your bedroom…”

My racing heart could’ve answered that question for him it was beating so hard, and I almost wished it would, since being this close had every thought fleeing my brain. Especially when he leaned in like he was going to whisper in my ear, his words a silky breath across my chin.

“What happens next?” Dylan fingered the buckle of my belt, and I immediately reached down to still his hand.

“Hang on a second,” I said, and could feel my chest tightening at what he was implying. Jesus, I wanted this so bad, wanted him so bad, yet at the same time I was utterly terrified.

“No,” Dylan said, removing his hand from mine. I caught my breath as he slid his finger over the buckle once again. “Not this time. You have a nasty habit of starting things and never quite finishing them, Ace Locke.”

His teasing tone made me want to kiss the smirk off his face, but I was caught between all the things I wanted to do and everything I’d always held myself back from.

“Kind of like yesterday in your car. You corner me somewhere and then seem to think better of it.” As Dylan angled his head to the side, he slipped his fingers behind the buckle and took a step backward. “Why is that?”

His fingers had frozen in place, and I knew if I wanted anything else beyond this to happen, I needed to say something—and fast. So I said the first thing that came to mind: “Because you make me fucking forget myself.”

Clearly that answer was more than okay by the man whose fingers had now tightened around the top off my pants, because Dylan continued moving backward, this time drawing me with him until his back was against my bedroom wall and I was crowding him in.

“And this is a bad thing?” he asked, and even in the darkness of the room I knew his eyes were on mine.

“No…” I said, and took in a shaky breath before admitting, “It’s a dangerous thing.”

“So this”—Dylan pulled the end of my belt from its loop—“would be too dangerous.”

I cursed under my breath as he tugged my hips closer, and his other hand went to the side of my neck. His thumb grazed my lower lip, and instantly it took me back to the first time I’d seen him, seen that same thumb brushing against his lip, and I let out a soft moan.

“Just a taste,” he whispered, his head angling toward mine. “That wouldn’t be too dangerous. Right?” He didn’t wait for me to respond before his mouth skimmed the line of my jaw. As I held my breath, he planted light, feathery kisses down my neck, and I had to put a hand on the wall to steady myself.

“I think it’d be very fucking dangerous,” I said, but I didn’t move away. No way in hell was I going anywhere, no matter how many red flags were waving, telling me I was going too far. I wanted this, wanted him, and only the devil himself could drag me away.

Dylan’s lips left my neck and he leaned back to look me in the eye. “So stop me.”

I shook my head. “No.”

Aced was everything I wanted but didn't know I needed! I am loving this collaboration of Blaine and Frank; they are doing amazing things. I couldn't put Aced down...I had to know what was going to happen.

Ace Locke is an action hero, a recently out action hero. Everyone is trying to get that first shot of him with a man. He's followed daily, he doesn't really have privacy. Everyone wants to know what's happening in Ace's life and Ace is wondering why he's so drawn to the Calvin Klein model on the billboard.

How Dylan Prescott was cast in a film, he has no idea. His agent must be performing miracles. When he steps onto the sound stage he's in awe of where he is. His favorite actor of all time is Ace Locke and just knowing he may see him makes doing this movie worth it.

Coming face to face with the man you have lusted over for years is scary. Finding out he's lusting after you is mind blowing. Will one night ever be enough? Can Ace and Dylan keep their relationship out of the papers? Or will the hiding and dodging paparazzi be too much to handle?

The interactions between Dylan and Ace in the beginning were some of my favorite. The sarcasm level was high, the attraction was explosive, and the lust was non-forgiving.

My only complaint is that more than a few times it took me a paragraph or two to figure out who was speaking. There really isn't a clear difference in the character voices and at certain times it became muddled.

I am DYING to find out what's next!!!

I just loved this book. How Ace would just sit in traffic and look at the billboard of Dylan cracked me up! These two guys are perfect for each other and I love how they are together. Dylan’s family is a hoot and I wish we would have seen more of them. We got to see other characters from other books by Ella Frank, which I LOVED! I will have to say I was shocked by the last few chapters, not in a bad way, but a good way and I wanted to be right there with them in Vegas. HOLY. CRAP. Oh, and did I mention it ends on a cliffhanger? Damn it! I can’t wait for the next book though, hope it’s soon!

Sex: Yes
Religious: No
Would I recommend to others: Yes
More than one book in the series: Yes

Brooke Blaine

You could say Brooke Blaine was a book-a-holic from the time she knew how to read; she used to tell her mother that curling up with one at 4 a.m. before elementary school was her 'quiet time.' Not much has changed except for the espresso I.V. pump she now carries around and the size of her onesie pajamas.

Brooke enjoys writing sassy contemporary romance, whether in the form of comedy, suspense, or erotica. The latter has scarred her conservative Southern family for life, bless their hearts.

If you'd like to get in touch with her, she's easy to find - just keep an ear out for the Rick Astley ringtone that's dominated her cell phone for ten years.
