Everything has a price.
Self-made millionaire Xavier Ashburne has never stopped fighting for control. Money and power gave him some, but there's still so much uncertainty neither can overcome.
When his longtime lover and partner, Luther Cross, leaves on a trip to reconnect with his brother, Xavier is left to manage their business and household alone. He'd never realized how much he relied on his man—especially when it comes to their shared submissive, Alexander Tremaine.
As a reformed thief, Alexander came into Xavier's life in the most unconventional fashion, but before too long, stole his way into Xavier's heart. And now that he's there, Xavier needs the control he's won to keep him safe and happy.
But when Xavier's past comes back to haunt them, all the riches in the world won't be enough.
Money is worthless.
Power merely existence painted in gold.
All the feels
I was so excited to get my hands on book 2 in the New Rules Trilogy and it did not disappoint this book was everything I expected and more. Gilded is the second part of Xavier, Luther and Alec’s story and you do need to read the first book to get the best out of their journey.
Xavier is the man who always seems to hold something back he finds it hard to open up and be honest about his past and unless he come come to terms and start talking about it he risks losing the men who have become important to him. Xavier needs to take down the walls he has built around himself because if he doesn’t he could lose everything important in his world.....
This book has all the feels you expect in a great read, it captivated me and all three of these men stole a little piece of my heart. This story is about love it’s about trust and it’s about honesty, Xavier, Luther and Alec’s chemistry is hot as hell and I was so glad I joined their love story that was more of a journey, in case you haven’t realised already I Loved Everything about this book and I can’t wait to see where this very talented author takes us next.
a great addition
Bianca Sommerland has an affinity for this genre and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a great MMM story.
Gilded is book two of Xavier, Luther and Alec’s story. Told from Xavier’s point of view it is clear that the relationship could be improved even though they love one another.When Luther goes away for a week Xavier and Alec are left to fend for themselves and muddle through the quagmire that is their relationship.
Right from the start Xavier Ashburne has struggled and continues to withhold a part of himself from those who love him. It is obvious that Xavier and Luther have a complicated relationship and when Alec was added in to the mix, things only become more complicated.
Gilded gives us an insight as to why Xavier is the way that he is and it was interesting to see how the actions from his past impact his present with Luther and Alec.
Can Xavier learn from his past or will it come back to haunt him and put in jeopardy those that he holds dear?
