Ben and Conner…they popped up fully formed and passionate about one another in the first Bound & Controlled book. However, they’ve always been quiet about their relationship and had a tendency to flirt and change the subject whenever I poked at them.
It wasn’t until Conner became friends with Finley (Beautiful Shame: Finely & Jared), that he opened up about how his relationship with Ben started.
The answer is with lots of passion, snark, and ridiculousness.
If you’ve read some of the books they’ve shown up in as side characters, you’ll remember that the only thing we really knew about the start of their relationship was that Conner used to work his stress out as a cage dancer in a gay bar.
Well, discovering how Ben caught his attention has been fun, and I can’t wait to show you how it all started with them. Their novella, Becoming The Owners, is now live and I can’t wait to see what you think. Click here to read the first chapter.
All it took was one look for Ben to know he’d found his forever.
He just needs to figure out how to get the enchanting man to come down from his gilded cage and see what is waiting for him down below. But when the stunning dancer in the cage spends more time hiding from the world than embracing it, Ben knows he’s going to have to get creative if he wants to catch the pretty bird’s attention.
All it took was one look for Conner to know the man standing in front of him was insane.
It also only took one look for Conner to realize he might have a thing for crazy men with big dreams. Something about the passion in the bold man’s eyes pulls him in, but what captures Conner’s imagination are the tempting promises and the way the man sees more than just a naughty bird dancing high above the crowd.
