A late-awakened bi guy and his secret crush try to play Santa for some kids. But there’s a hitman blocking the chimney...
Have you ever been locked out of your apartment shirtless, holding a wet rabbit and getting served with legal papers right when your super-hot neighbor walks by?
Maybe it’s just me.
After Baz stops to help, I finally have a chance to show him there’s more to me than the loud parties and one-night stands he’s witnessed over the years. And I find out he’s more than just an aloof work-from-home accountant. Who would’ve guessed we both love superheroes and have big hangups about Christmas?
When Baz finds a bunch of letters to Santa in the recycle bin, helping those kids’ holiday wishes come true is the perfect way for us to spend time together.
But we didn’t expect to get yelled at by the kids’ neighbors. (Okay, maybe the binoculars were a bad idea.) And we didn’t expect my estranged brothers to show up and take over Baz’s apartment. (Okay, but as a side effect, he’s staying at my place...)
And we never expected to interrupt a hitman in the middle of a job.
What’s Santa Got to Do with It? is a semi-low-angst, humorous holiday romance featuring a bi-awakening, a chonky rabbit, learning work-life balance, forced proximity, avoiding THAT Christmas song, reconciling with (some) family, interfering friends, and a hitman with a heart of gold.
Well, this puts the "ex" in "explosive"...
What would happen if everyone you’d ever dated got together and plotted against you?
For me, it’s glitter bombs. Lots and lots of glitter bombs.
Okay, maybe I deserved the first one or two. Or three. But when things become less glitter and more grenade, I’m forced into hiding with the smokin’ hot older client I just had a sizzling one-night stand with.
Malcolm’s gruff exterior hides a marshmallow center (who else would hire a pet massage therapist for their elderly cat?) — but until the bomber is behind bars, neither of us are safe.
And no one would risk their life for a disaster like me...right?
I wasn’t under any illusions the night I ended up in Felix’s bed. He’s just my type — smart, funny, and adorable with just the right amount of meat on his bones.
But a guy like that deserves more than a grouchy forty-something ex-FBI agent with a broken body and a screwed-up brain. So, I knew we were only ever in this for one night.
Except now with his dating history blowing up in his face, Felix is turning to me for help.
And I’m pretty sure my feelings can’t be defused.
Head Over Feels is a low-angst MM contemporary romance. Come for the grumpy/sunshine, forced proximity (but there are two beds, sorry), hurt/comfort, and found family. Stay for the bombs (glitter and real), the 1985 Buick Riviera convertible, dreams coming true, atoning for past mistakes, game nights, a dead body, and an online date gone very, very, wrong. HEA guaranteed!
This hot cop is about to collar his man...
It’s not quite protocol to start flirting right after you’ve flashed your badge at a guy. But I can’t resist Craig, the pet resort owner I’ve come to interview. I mean, look at him in his wet jeans and…is that dog hair all over his chest?
I’m dying to ask him out, but first I have to do a favor for my great aunt—okay, she bribed me—and go on a blind date with the grandson of her frenemy.
But guess who shows up to rescue me with an outrageous cover story and a rhinestone dog collar?
My last excuse for a relationship ended badly. Like, I-needed-two-years-of-therapy badly. But I can’t stop thinking about the hot cop who told me to call him if I had any questions.
Trust me, he meant those italics.
When I see an opportunity to save Foster in his hour of need, I decide to go hard or go home. And it pays off — big time.
But even if I’m ready to risk dating again, is Foster ready for the reputation my little stunt has given him? And when our lives (and bodies) start to get tangled, are either of us ready to let our hearts get involved?
One thing I know is neither of us are ready for the guy with a gun in my house...
Heart Me Up is a low-angst MM romance filled with meddling friends, hurt/comfort, game nights, one very uncomfortable couch, and the creative use of dog accessories...
This story takes place before the events in the rest of the Bent Oak, Texas series and can be read as a standalone.
READ HEART ME UP TODAY!
Two’s company, but three’s better endowed...
Weddings can be life changing. At the last one I photographed, I almost lost my life altogether—but despite scarring me in every way possible, it’s at least afforded me the compensation to live as I please.
Nowadays, that’s snapping pics of wildlife instead of bridezillas—but when my furry friends lead me onto a nearby ranch, I find myself on the wrong end of a shotgun. Turns out it’s Cole Washburn—newly retired A-list action star—and he doesn’t want anyone finding out just how close he is to Jason, his now live-in “bodyguard”...
Not that I’d ever out anyone. I know exactly how hard that decision is.
Speaking of hard, that’s exactly what things start to get as soon as I have a chance to explain myself to these mega hunks. Hard to open up to them, hard to walk away—and very hard to ignore what my body and heart are telling me.
After one very naked weekend, it’s safe to say there’s no going back—for any of us. The multiplication of possibilities is just too mind-blowing.
But one of us has a past that could take all of us down...and this time, there’ll be no second chances.
Holding On to a Hero is the first book in the Bent Oak, Texas series by Bix Barrow. It’s a super steamy, three-person POV, suspenseful MMM thriller/romance, infused with humor, heart...and a thrilling ending you’ll never see coming!

BENT OAK TEXAS
Welcome to Bent Oak, Texas, a little town west of Austin where love happens despite everyone’s best efforts to avoid it. Bent Oak is home to Cole Washburn’s animal rescue ranch, the Bark & Purr Pet Resort, Henry’s Bar and Restaurant, and an 80’s music station that, due to the rock formations in the surrounding area, is the only radio station that comes in clearly.
When Bix Barrow got an idea for her first book, it ended up turning into her second — and thus the first two stories in the Bent Oak, Texas series emerged. An aspiring author for most of her life, it took a foray into the MM romance genre to spark the steamy scenes and blazing banter Bix now weaves into her novels. Accompanying her on her writing exploits are her two dogs and multitude of cats (seven at last count). An avid traveler, Bix has started to view her expeditions as interviews for her future home. Born and raised in Texas, she is eager to move somewhere with fewer politicians, hurricanes and flooding. Connect with Bix at firstname.lastname@example.org
