Publisher's Summary

I’m everyone’s friend, but no one’s everything....

I love working for Ballsy Boys, but when you make the kind of videos I do, relationships are pretty damn impossible. Guys find me sexy and want to either be with me or be me, but no one has ever cared enough to see the real me.

Until I meet Troy...who shows up in a banana suit at my door. Long story.

Troy has no problem whatsoever with my job, but he’s determined to keep me at a distance. I get it, he’s been hurt before. But for the first time, a hook-up alone is not enough. I want more with him. Hell, I want everything. But he resists at every step until I’m about ready to give up. What do I need to do to show him that what we have is real and worth fighting for?

Rebel is the first book in the Ballsy Boys Series and is a sexy, emotional MM romance that will make you fall in love with all the Ballsy Boys. While this audiobook and this series do contain some instances of sex outside of the main relationships, there’s no cheating.

Narration adds a lot to the enjoyment of the book

This review is very similar to the one I did for the book.

I enjoyed the book a lot. I don’t remember it being this funny though. The narration by Kenneth Obi really showed Rebel’s and Troy’s sweet, fun sides. I usually like to read the book before I do the audio, but in this case the audio would be fine first.

Rebel is one of the of the Ballsy Boys porn stars. He's a nice guy who's happy with his work and life. The men he works with are like an odd kind of family. He sometimes wishes he could find someone to date who isn't bothered by his profession. His current guy doesn't know what he does and for now that's fine with him.

Want to breakup with someone but don't want to tell them yourself? Hire Troy and he will do it for you. Not the best job to have but it allows him to go to school and to work on a mobile game app he is trying to develop.

Troy is hired to break up with Hendrix (better known as Rebel) but he has to do it in a banana suit. When he realizes who Rebel is (his favorite Boy) he immediately convinces him a good way of getting even would be to have sex. Rebel agrees and off comes the banana suit.

Neither is looking for long term. Rebel wants something away from his porn career. Troy, afraid of any closeness, wants the hot sex with someone he's fantasized about. They begin with the sex, then the feelings creep in. You'll have to listen to the book to see how they solve the issues that come between them.

The story is well written and you know with a porn stars as major players the sex will be amazing. This is the first in the Ballsy Boys series.

Spicy and Sweet


I heard so much about the Ballsy Boys series and my expectations were so high that I was afraid it wouldn't live to the hype.

But it does! And I had a blast listening/reading it!

Rebel is the story about Hendrick (aka Rebel) a sweet , romantic and all around nice person and also, one of the most popular and hottest Porn Star at Ballsy Boys Productions .

And about Roy, a commitment phobic, smart and sexy , last year college student, struggling to pay tuition .

Through a combination of circumstances that includes, a bad date, a banana costume, lack of money and luck , our heroes meet and hit it off.

From duck 😏buddies , to friends with benefits their relationship develops to much more. While simultaneously having a lot and I mean A LOT of hot AF sexy times, that I thoroughly enjoyed, but I digress.

Yes, there are a lot of explicitly descriptive, dirty and smutty scenes ; yet there is also an entertaining and engaging plot and narrative.

Kenneth Obi narration was on point and perfect. He acted all the characters , not just read the book.

Looking forward listening other books of the series.

Finding love you think you don't deserve

This is a wonderful story about finding and keeping love. After being abandoned be people that were supposed to love him Troy gave up on finding lasting love until he met Rebel. One of my favorite scenes is when Troy goes to NY to be with Rebel.
Narrator Kenneth Obi does a fabulous job and I can't wait to listen to the rest of this series.

I love the way Kenneth brought the book to life in my head. I loved the book when I read it. Kenneth brought it to a whole new level in my ears. The ballsy boys are one of my favorite series I am so super excited it came to audio. Rebel and Toy are so super sweet together and sexy as all get out.

4 stars

As is well expected by the synopsis, this book is full of sex and dirty talk. The narration and many different characters threw me off at first but eventually I got it all figured out in my head. Troy was a bit over the top with his commitment phobia, but at least they worked it out for a happy ending. I look forward to the next book in this series.

Terrible narration

I loved this book when I read it, but I had a really hard time listening to it all the way through. I felt like the narrator really missed on the interpretation of the story and the characterizations of all the different players in the story. Troy sounded like an over-excited teenager most of the time, no matter what was happening in the story, and Rebel sounded like a total stoner. The inflection of the two main characters never changed regardless of what was going on, and it was sooo annoying. The rest of the characters sounded so similar that I couldn't even guess who was speaking if there was no name attached to the speaker. The other problem was that the enunciation of the narrator was poor and sometimes I couldn't even understand what words he was saying. It's a shame because this book could have been so much better on audio with a different narrator. I have no plans to purchase any of the other audio books in the series if it's the same narrator.

a whole new experience

I loved this book and I didn't think it was possible to love it more. I was wrong. The narrator added so much dimension and feeling to this story. I cannot recommend it enough
