Platonic Rulebook by Saxon James Blog Tour

I talk a big talk about wanting to be single, but my platonic rule book has gone out the window.


Walking away from my marriage was my idea of a fresh start.

My kid is in college, my ex-wife and I are on good terms… but being single in my forties is a world different to being single in my teens.

I’m thankful for my best friend, Heath. He’s got my back like he always does and is ready to take me out and show me how the bachelor life is done.

He was never supposed to show me literally.

After we wake up in bed together, I can’t stop looking at him differently, and one thing becomes abundantly clear.

I talk a big talk about wanting to be single, but my platonic rulebook has gone out the window.


When my best friend comes to me for help post-divorce, I’m only too happy to impart my wisdom to him.

After all, Griffin isn’t my type, but even I can tell he’s a complete lumbersnack. Good with his hands, kind eyes, and a killer smile. All the guys and gals are gonna eat him alive.

But the more time we spend together, the less “not my type” he becomes. I’m the one who can’t get enough of him.

Neither of us is interested in a relationship, so what’s a little fun between friends?

We both know the score.

Platonic Rulebook is the second installment of the Divorced Men's Club (DMC) series. It can be read as a standalone but reads better in the order the author intended.

Griff has been waiting for his son to go off to college to have the fresh start that's been coming for years. Griff and Poppy love each other but know the marriage is over. They agree to wait until their son, Felix, is in college to get divorced. Griff has known he's bisexual most of his life and was okay not exploring that side of himself until getting this fresh start and being with a man is all he can think of. But it's been almost twenty years since he's dated and a while since he's had sex. He feels so out of his element and so unprepared to start this part of his life he turns to his best friend, Heath, and the men of the DMC for advice.

Heath has always been in Griff's corner. They've been best friends for years and he'd do whatever he could be make Griff happy. Heath and Griff work together at the motel he and Poppy own together. With Poppy stepping away from the business, it puts Griff and Heath in an even closer situation. While trying to help Griff with his dating issues and business, Heath can't help but fall for his best friend. When the sexual tension between them is too much, they know where they stand and nothing with ruin their friendship. Or does one night change everything they thought they knew?

I loved everything about this read. Nothing reads better than friends to lovers and Saxon James writes this one spectacularly! The chemistry between Heath and Griff builds with every page until it can't be contained. I love the DMC and the friendship that exists between these men. I can't wait to see what's next for them.

I'm usually not one to read friends-to-lover stories a lot, but the blurb touched home for me since I'm recently divorced and in my forties. Griff and Heath are best friends. When Griff divorces, Heath helps him navigate life again. This was a sweet, passion-filled, low-angst story that just made my heart melt. These two guys were perfect for each other, and I loved going on their journey with them.
