Omri ruined Tripp’s life and career. His reputation is shot. That doesn’t mean they’re done.
A stupid reality show. Tripp should have never agreed to do a celebrity season of Fresh Hell. But he honestly thought six weeks of ranch life and ridiculous challenges would be an easy million bucks in his pocket. As a pro football player, he thought he could skate through unscathed. Unfortunately, Tripp also never expects to find himself attracted to another contestant bent on winning, an overly cocky French actor named Omri, especially since Tripp has never wanted another man. He one hundred percent never expects the show and Omri to wreck his entire life.
Omri never meant to level Tripp’s life. It was just a game. They were in a bubble while on the show. Their every move recorded for the world to see. He doesn’t realize until they leave the ranch how much damage he’s done. There’s no way Omri will let Tripp suffer any consequences because of him. Now he just needs Tripp to cooperate and let him fix things. Oh, and Omri needs to figure out how to fall out of love with Tripp since there’s zero chance the stubborn football star will choose him.
Fresh Hell might be the name of the show that started it all, but it’s truly symbolic of the characters’ lives in this series by author Charity Parkerson, where the men will face challenges they never expected. These are a combination of sports, bi-awakening, and several other sub genres with interconnecting characters. They are best when read in order.
They were best friends who fell in love years ago. Then everything fell apart. Now one of them is looking to turn back time.
When Billy was in his last year of high school, Neo and Billy were inseparable, even though they were from opposite sides of the tracks. Then, one night, Billy ruined everything, and Neo hammered the nail in the coffin. Despite still seeing each other all the time, and almost fourteen years later, they still haven’t spoken about that night. But nothing has changed for Billy. There is no one else out there for him. No amount of fame or fortune could buy or replace Neo. Neo is the one for him. Always has been. It’s long past the point Billy should have let the past go and dogged Neo’s every step until he gave in, but there’s no time like the present. Now he just needs Neo to cooperate.
Neo is fine with Billy being the one, even though they’ll never be together. For him, it’s a nice a memory to look back on as long as he doesn’t get to the part where Billy chose his rich friends over him. That’s okay. Neo got his revenge. They’re even and are cordial these days. So what if he can’t stop eyeing Billy’s very nice physique and gorgeous eyes? That’s life. He’ll live. All he has to do is keep resisting Billy’s nonstop advances because Neo knows the one truth that will never change. Money will always choose money in the end.

These are a combination of sports, bi-awakening, and several other sub genres with interconnecting characters. This series is best when read in order.
