“This is a great idea.”
Aiden had jumped up, fist punched the air, and yelled, “That’s how we do it! BAM!”
It stuck. Our initials, our ideas, our brand. My brothers.

Three young men meet in university and form a lifelong friendship.
Their pasts dictate the men they are, but their present shapes their future.
What happens when these men meet the one person they are destined to be with? Can they fight their feelings and walk away? Or will they each succumb and learn the sweet agony of love?


Haunted by memories of his past, Aiden plays the part of the happy-go-lucky friend. Always ready with a teasing smile or a joke, he is good at hiding his pain.
Using his impressive physique as a shield, he keeps his past buried beneath his rugged exterior.
Except, one woman sees through his façade.
Her green eyes see too much, even as her body tempts him.
Even as his heart yearns for her.
Cami is determined to make him realize that he is worthy of being loved.
He pushes her away at every turn, yet finds himself unable to keep her at arm’s length.
Who will win this battle of love?

Before Bentley could respond, Reid sauntered in, a huge grin on his face. He flung himself in the chair beside Bentley. “Hey, morning.”

Bentley eyed him with disdain. “Don’t I pay you enough for you to come into the office not looking like an unmade bed?”

I snickered. Reid was a good-looking kid, but he didn’t seem to care about his appearance. He was tall and lanky, almost as if he hadn’t grown into his body, his thick, dark hair too long and in constant disarray. He brushed it off his face, a constant habit I was sure he was unaware he had. He wore thick, black glasses, which highlighted his hazel eyes and heavy brows. His normal state of dress included torn jeans and a vintage rock band T-shirt, a total deviation from the normal dress code of the office, but for Reid, Bentley allowed it. Today, though, his hair was wilder than normal, there was stubble on his chin, and his clothes looked as though he had slept in them. He was a mess, but his expression was filled with excitement.

“I didn’t come into work, Bent. I never left. I was up all night talking to one of the guys over at Unwired about the cool stuff we’re working on for the condo towers. This is gonna be epic shit, man. These places are gonna be sick with the things they can do once we’re done. Security, music, lighting, even which shower heads you want to use, everything at the touch of a button. No wires, no shit to deal with. We started talking about a new idea, and I had to start writing the code for the programs.” He shook his head. “Epic shit.”

Bentley and I shared an amused glance.

Reid was an untapped genius I had been lucky enough to stumble across. Because of his criminal record, no one would touch him, but there was something about him that made me want to have him on our side. He had been forthcoming, open, and honest in his initial interview and even more so in his second. He impressed both Maddox and me, even with his oversharing of some personal details, and we had been correct in our instinct he would be a good fit here. We had grown closer, and I knew his entire history now, which only made me more protective of him as I would be with a younger brother. He had proven himself invaluable to us, to Bentley, especially, and he had secured a lifelong contract with our company. Reid, the little shit, took full advantage of it.

“Glad to hear my money is being well spent,” Bentley stated dryly.

Reid stood and scratched his stomach, not remotely concerned about Bentley’s tone of voice.

“Yep. In fact, I’m gonna go to my office and take a shower in that private bathroom you made sure I had. Damn thing is bigger than my apartment, I swear. I’ll even change into clean clothes. I think Sandy brought my laundry back yesterday, so there must be some stuff in the closet.”

“Sandy does your laundry?” I sputtered. “That’s not her job.”

He shrugged. “I didn’t ask her to, but she said something about boys being boys and me needing looking after.” He grinned. “Who am I to argue with her?”

“Do not take advantage of her kindness,” I warned. “Sandy deserves our respect.”

He became serious. “Those flowers on her desk are my thanks every week. I bring her coffee, and also upgraded every computer in her house and installed some wicked speakers in her kitchen. For an old broad she has awesome taste in music.”

Then he turned and left, waving over his shoulder.

I looked at Bentley. “The kid has no boundaries.”

Oh my gosh!!! Thank you for this amazing chance!!! I can’t even express how much I love these books!!! Three best friends who have formed an unbreakable bond and three incredible stories about those men finding the loves of their life!!!
I love this excerpt!!! It’s light-hearted and fun!!! You can tell by the light-hearted banter that the men have a great friendship and that they work hard to ensure that their company is performing well (Reid literally stayed up talking to a guy about all the cool stuff they are working on for the towers)!!! I also love how they know how to treat a woman right!!!! Reid is so appreciative of the things Sandy does for him and thanks her by bringing her flowers every week, bringing her coffee and upgrading every computer in her house and installing speakers in her kitchen!!! Sigh!!! There is nothing sexier than a man who knows how to treat a woman right!!! Thank you again for this amazing chance!!!

The excerpt is so realistic you feel like you’re in the room with them. I love how just that little bit already pulls you in.

Loved it – but I wish I had more confidence like Reid does! I assume he’s not the Hero, but maybe he’ll get his own story cause he’s a doll just from that excerpt. I could picture them looking out after he left the room and wondering “what just happened again with Reid?”

Oh love the excerpt and seeing the relationship they have with each other. I know Reid isn’t one of the three ‘brothers’ but do I spy a potential extra or perhaps fourth story with him and Sandy? ;) Thanks for hosting the giveaway! I’ve been a fan of Melanie Moreland sine reading The Contract!

I absolutely ADORE Melanie Moreland – fell in love with Bentley but most of all I fell in love with the friendship that is forged between our three BAM boys – and that’s the foundation of these books and Ms. Moreland does a brilliant job of expressing that foundation!!

This is so good I cant wait to read this book! I love when books are so good in blurbs it makes me so excited to read the whole thing! Cant wait!
Thanks for chance and giveaway 😀

This was hilarious!!! The expert just reflects everything that I love about these boys! They are funny, caring, even sarcastic, attantive to each other, loving and really trust worthy! Melanie’s brilliant writing style with great very developed characters. Bentley was amazing, Aiden will be full of mistory for sure! Thanks for this chance, I would love to win these magnificent books!

I absolutely love this series and I’m dying for Maddox!
I love the fun humor along with the suspense and heart in both Bentley and Aiden.

So this excerpt was the reason I just downloaded Bentley on my kindle, I can’t wait to get reading it. Funny, interesting and swoon worthy characters. Love it.
