They call me the Charmer. My best friend Wade tells me it’s because I’m suave and mysterious. But he doesn’t know my secret. The one I’ve kept hidden from him for twelve years. The one I will never reveal to him — Rhys

They call me The Brute. Probably because of my physique. And, let’s face it, because I’m a total dick at times. So Rhys likes to tell me anyway. Thing is, there’s something Rhys isn’t telling me. Something I’m dying to hear from his lips. His sinful confession. You see, I know Rhys’s secret — Wade

Rhys Damon has spent most of his adult life watching Wade Tucker bed woman after woman, his dark desire for his best friend and business partner a secret he is determined to take to his grave, since he knows it will never be reciprocated. With their design firm thriving across two continents, Rhys finds himself content burying his heartache in a string of meaningless, casual sex arrangements. Until the night everything changes.

When Wade Tucker stumbles upon his best friend calling out his name as he pleasures himself, he knows his relationship with Rhys will never be the same again. A year later, the memory of what Wade saw is still branded in his mind and his feelings for Rhys have evolved into something he never anticipated. As tension mounts and the relationship between the two business partners becomes increasingly strained, things finally come to a head the night Wade follows Rhys and discovers him with another man.

After an explosive confrontation, Wade makes Rhys a proposition he can’t refuse: that they try things out for six weeks. Six weeks of exploring a side of each other they never knew before. Six weeks of torrid kisses and sultry touches. Six weeks of screamingly good, scorching hot sex. Six weeks of utterly losing themselves to one another.

But as the end of their proposition looms in sight, can Wade persuade Rhys that he wants more? Or will Rhys’s deep-seated fears stop him from fully surrendering his heart and soul to the one man he thought he could never have? 

Discover Rhys and Wade’s wickedly intoxicating story in this sixth novella in the hot, contemporary romance series Nights by A.M. Salinger. Note from the author: although each book in Nights can be read as a standalone, you will enjoy this series even more if you read the books in order!

This is a novella length MM romance with a HEA.

Well shimmer my timbers. Is it just me or is it wrong to find M/M Romance even hotter than the traditional romances? I mean seriously…. HOT DAMN. I think it is hot in here; is it hot to you? 


Yes my comrades, I enjoyed The Proposition on so many levels.

Rhys. Oh my lanta – Rhys is just divine. He is very much hidden from Wade on his sexuality but is still very open with himself that he loves men. More importantly he is in love with his Best Friend, Wade, which is why he hides himself. I like Rhys because he is so cautious yet up front and beautiful. He is an honest person when confronted and really just a sweet heart – just downright mesmerizing. Wade on the other hand is really brooding, charismatic character. He also has this presence that was absolutely captivating. He is compassionate and understanding, actually he is entranced that Rhys is sexually attracted towards him yet hurt that Rhys has hidden this side of him after a decade of being friends. 

I said it before and I will say it again – simmer my timbers comrades… That chemistry was definitely amazing. My quivering loins can only take so much beaver drool scenarios. Raw, pure steam-filled connection. Wade and Rhys together – mouth watering. 

Obviously I can say, and I did say how deliciously scrumptious the chemistry is between Rhys and Wade, but something I will also mention is the drama and conflicts that occur while the lovers discover their feelings. Wade of course is straight, Rhys is completely conflicted with how to approach this. He definitely worries that Wade is just ‘experimenting’ while Rhys is very much in love with Wade. So there is a huge disconnect, really forces drama that isn’t really there. Wade on the other hand takes the situation full force, he wants Rhys, not just has his best friend but as his lover. He never knew he would be in this point emotionally or physically in his life – definitely something he enjoys experiencing. Really just sets a relatable, believable scenario between these fictional characters that the reader just cannot help but fall in love with. 

And those secondary characters…. oh drool much?! I loved how there was this connective situation between the main characters and the dynamics of the secondary characters. Everything circling the characters really aided in the drama factor plus the blossoming romance of Wade and Rhys. 

I will admit too, I read this without knowing this was a series! So that sent me through a doosey. So although you can read this as a standalone, I will admit after reading the synopsis for some of the other books within the Night Series, I definitely plan on going back. 

Overall – this was a great read. I loved Wade and Rhys relationship. The multilayered dynamic that was their chemistry spoke volumes as they evolved business partners and best friends to lovers. It was such a beautifully fun romance that I couldn’t help but swoon hardcore. The book boner is strong with this one my comrades!
