Mad & Marvelous by Elizabeth Varlet

Hop Lovette isn’t afraid to take risks. Being the bastard son of New York royalty has never given him anything but heartache. So when the Sassy Boyz land a contract at club Switch, he knows it’s only a matter of time before his marvelous world is turned on its head: the owner is his childhood rival.

Rafe Marson owes Hop’s father everything, and he’s on a mission to repay his debts. Nothing will stand in his way—not even a wild, beautiful, maddening blast from his past. Not even when Hop stirs up feelings better left dormant. Not even when Hop begs to be taken.

When opportunity knocks, Hop is the one who needs to step up and help Rafe. But working together without being together is harder than they thought—and when everything they’ve been working toward is threatened, Rafe will need to prove that true love is one in a million.

This is the fourth book in the series, and whilst I would recommend that you read them in order, you could still enjoy this as a first entry into the world of these talented dancers.

Hop is a fairly new member of the team and doesn't think he is as good as the rest, so works extra hard at being good enough. We soon learn that he has a mixed up past (which is fairly normal for these guys!) and that his past and his present are colliding in a way which affects him more than he would like.

Rafe used to be Hop's minder, until he chose to stop the cycle which was destroying them both. Sadly, so much misunderstanding exists between them that the crushing chemistry is confusing. However, the exhilaration cannot be denied – Rafe's dominance is just what Hop didn't know he needed.

Tied up in Rafe's business Switch, and the Sassy Boyz’ contract to perform, Hop and Rafe have a difficult line to follow. It is a fascinating one for us as readers though, and I really enjoyed their growing closeness and how revelations about the past made the present and the future so much brighter!

Another excellent addition to the series. Thank you, Ms. Varlet.

I love this series! The fourth Sassy Boyz story returns us to a world of glamour and angst. Hop’s story adds family drama and a little bit of kink as the Sassy Boyz become even more successful.

As always, I loved the dance, the costumes, and the beautiful boyz. The relationships between the boys are wonderful and I enjoyed seeing their careers progress. Hop’s past is full of secrets that threaten his dancing and his future. Rafe isn’t quite what he first seems but it took me much of the story to warm to him.

The heat between Rafe and Hop is fabulous and the D/s kink they enjoy together is very sexy.

For me, at times there was a little bit too much drama. The first scenes between Hop and Rafe feel like something out of a teen soap and the secrecy and poor communication doesn’t always work for me. The plot was complicated and I’m still not sure I understand all of Rafe and Hop’s pasts. Ultimately, this is a fun, sexy read full of angst and passion.
