Release Blitz & Giveaway ~ Hipster Brothel by KA Merikan

Buy Links: Amazon US | Amazon UK

Length: 50,000 words


The lumberjack of his dreams is now available for rent.

Mr. B has always been a safe guy for Jo to crush on. He’s the cutest bearded lumber-god to salivate over. Add to that his friendly, outgoing personality, and Mr. B might just be the first guy Jo would be willing to kiss. Fortunately, Mr. B has been in a relationship for years, and Jo is no home-wrecker.

But when Mr. B breaks up with his partner and all of a sudden is single, available, and talks about his plans to be sexually adventurous, Jo isn’t so sure anymore if he has the guts to come out as bisexual.

After a sour breakup, Mr. B wants to show his ex that he’s independent, exciting, and can do very well without him. His best friend Jo is there to the rescue, and they come up with a great new business venture. One thing they lack to start their own line of artisanal boozy jams - money for the investment.

After a drunken brainstorming session, Mr. B finds a way to both gather the cash and show the middle finger to his ex. He will create a one of a kind Hipster Brothel - The Lumbersexual Experience - offering wood chopping lessons, pipe smoking, and a reclaimed wood bed where the magic happens. It’s bound to be a success… if only Mr. B can go through with it, because the mixed signals from Jo are making him wonder if his best friend is as straight as he always seemed.

*May cause second hand embarrassment*
ohhh my gods did it ever lol! it was sort of uncomfortable to watch unfold, but you couldn't stop.

Getting into this story was a little slow going for me.
I think because I was trying g to grasp it all. The whole "Mr. B" name (he seemed too young for the name, but it grew on me) and the brainstorming about Lumbersexual Experiences. Then after getting through all that it hit me like a ton of bricks. This is supposed to be funny and maybe sort of ironic, especially with all the buzzwords, and just the "silliness" of it all.

I'm so glad the story turned another direction. I actually really started liking Mr. B. the fact that he was sort of a, for lack of a better word, "chubby" bear, it just went with his sweet demeanor and love of donuts and jams. He isn't your typical hero.
Jo was this slick, cool and trendy Asian with a man bun that totally stole Mr. B's attention. They're not really what you would think a likely pair, both sexy in their own rights, and together they rocked it. I was totally enamored with them by the end of this book.

Will I say this was my absolute favorite read? No, but having had read it and thinking back on the entire story, I'm still kind of giggling over Mr. B in his shorts and suspenders thinking about handing out some horrid flyers B-)

Author Bio

K. A. Merikan is the pen name for Kat and Agnes Merikan, a team of writers, who are taken for sisters with surprising regularity. Kat’s the mean sergeant and survival specialist of the duo, never hesitating to kick Agnes’s ass when she’s slacking off. Her memory works like an easy-access catalogue, which allows her to keep up with both book details and social media. Also works as the emergency GPS. Agnes is the Merikan nitpicker, usually found busy with formatting and research. Her attention tends to be scattered, and despite pushing thirty, she needs to apply makeup to buy alcohol. Self-proclaimed queen of the roads.

They love the weird and wonderful, stepping out of the box, and bending stereotypes both in life and books. When you pick up a Merikan book, there’s one thing you can be sure of – it will be full of surprises.
