Unnecessary Roughness by Rheland Richmond & Emerson Beckett

Unnecessary Roughness. Rheland Richmond. Emerson Beckett. Live Now. Available at Amazon. Package Deal.

Jackson Kincaid

When my best friend, Allison, died in a car accident, I suddenly became the parent of my ten-year-old godson. How was I supposed to play football for the Portland Pirates and be a full-time single dad?

Adjusting is the name of the game. But thanks to my friends, and Simon, the team doctor, we'll heal and make it through.

Did I mention he's my best friend, and I can't stop my having dirty thoughts about getting him naked? Keeping my feelings a secret isn't easy or the only obstacle I'll face.

Simon Taylor

As my new friends like to say, I'm the hardass team doctor that lets nothing get by me. But somehow, Jackson did.

While helping him adjust to his new reality, I wasn't prepared for my new feelings for him to surface. Especially when I didn't know I had them. Jackson and his godson have stolen my heart and aren't letting go.

It doesn't matter that our relationship might be considered forbidden or that he's fifteen years younger than me. I want things with him that I've never wanted with anyone else. Especially a man.

Jackson and I deserve to be together no matter how rough things get. Some things are just worth it.

Unnecessary Roughness is a smokin' hot, friends-to-lovers, age-gap story and the third book in The Package Deal series.

Reviews by the Wicked Reads Review Team

Unnecessary Roughness is the third installment in The Package Deal series. It can be read as a standalone, but I feel it is a better experience if read in the order that the authors intended.

Jackson Kincaid gets a call he never saw coming. His best friend from his childhood was in a fatal car accident leaving her ten-year-old son alone. Jackson's world is turned upside down, but he knows he has to get to Parker – that is his only concern. His friends seeing that he can't do this alone, Simon Taylor, the team doctor and one of Jackson's closest friends, goes to Atlanta with him to do what needs done for Parker.

Simon and Jackson had been dancing around their feelings for some time and when Jackson needed him the most, Simon was there. The emotional toll and closeness of the situation brought all of those feelings to the front and center, causing Simon to question himself and what he wanted. It was fast but they were it for each other. I loved the emotional rollercoaster of this one, with Parker and his needs. Simon and Jackson were such a good, emotionally exciting story. I can't wait for what's next with Callum and Declan.



Author Bio

Rheland Richmond. Romance Author.

For as long as she can remember Rheland's had her nose stuck in a book, getting lost in the world of someone else's creation (She still does). Her love for writing came from her love for reading. She could never have one without the other.

Writing has always been a hobby and a cathartic experience for her. There are many stories lost to the never to be completed or published pile but needed to be written at the time.

She's just a girl that loved stories so much she wrote hers.

RHELAND RICHMOND would love to hear from her readers and learn more about Y'all. So if you get a chance... please get in touch.

Emerson Beckett. Male Male Romance Author.

EMERSON BECKETT is new to the publishing world. As an avid sports fan and lover of well-written M/M romance books, Emerson loves her new career as an author of gay romance. It’s even more fulfilling for her when she can combine the two.

The journey to becoming an author started with an idea while reading on the sofa. That idea became an email that ultimately resulted in Emerson using those teacher skills to edit novels for three phenomenal M/M romance authors. The third referral led to an opportunity to co-write a book series with one of the most genuine and kindest people she’s ever had the pleasure of knowing – Rheland Richmond.
