Book #1 in the Bad Boyfriends Series

Kane leads a double life. By day, he pumps iron, running a fitness center, where jocks and Cougar flock for the burn and the ‘tude. By night, it’s something else entirely that gets pumped, as Kane swaps sweats for Armani to cater to an exclusive clientele, willing to pay well to indulge their special interests and tastes. His double life isn’t a problem until his conniving ex tightens the financial screws.

Finding and retaining suitable companions for his after-dark clients isn’t easy. David Black’s pole dancing performance at a friend’s club hints that he might hit all the bullet points on Kane’s list of requirements, in a way that could mean something other than “just business.”

David is out of work and out of options, so when he’s offered the choice of starvation or performing both on and off the stage, it’s a no-brainer. Kane’s offer of a position with the escort service is as attractive as the man himself, and David agrees to a trial period involving certain conditions. He quickly finds that he’s out of his depth.

Confronted with unanticipated roadblocks, one thing is clear… neither man is taking no for an answer.


UK Reviewer calls it “brilliant,”

GGR-Review says: “Reading this book is like finding a gem in a sea of pebbles, it is that exhilarating and exciting.”

ACX Review: “Good story, but Michael Ferraiuolo made it so much more. Each character was distinct and fun to listen to. Loved it. I hope the other books will be in audiobook format with Mr. Ferraiuolo at the helm.”

Book 2 in the Bad Boyfriends Series

What does it take to bring a slow simmer to a rolling boil?

Sean Rourke is hiding in plain sight as a Bad Boyfriends A-list escort, hoping to dodge the bullet from a few career missteps.

Mike Douglas’ financial backing and very special negotiating skills have him partnering not-so-silently at Bad Boyfriends, as well as running a training center for athletes and gym rats.

Eying each other at a distance is all they’ve allowed themselves until a joint special project at a seaside retreat in the Hamptons, entertaining a wily Boston attorney, shows them exactly how well they fit together, in more ways than simply business as usual.


…a good story, told with a hot undercurrent of true desire. ~~Drew Kirkpatrick

This was a steamy, entertaining, and unexpectedly sweet read. ~~Alina Popescu

What I loved about this story was there was never a break or a slow spot in the action. ~~Sue Allen Milkovich

While there aren’t any heavily erotic scenes I found the playful banter and sexual innuendo much more appealing. Rawlyns allows the reader to dream up the bedroom behavior of these two “Bad Boyfriends”. It’s an exercise in imagination that is the root of all story telling. ~~QueerTownAbbey
