Wells Lemiere knew the moment he saw Matty Haverbrooke, he had to have him. Matty was quiet, he was talented, he was beautiful, and Wells couldn’t stay away. As the youngest and most talented son of the NHL Commissioner, Matty had found the burden of family expectations almost too heavy to carry on even his broad shoulders. He had no intention of getting involved in a relationship with Wells. But the heart he’d given up for dead had other ideas. Their affair was intense and overwhelming, but when Matty couldn’t bring himself to come out and admit he wanted a public future with the man he loved, Wells had no choice but to honor his vow to live openly…and leave Matty behind. But then he learns Wells is marrying another, and Matty knows he can't let that happen. Can he throw down his gloves and embrace his future with both hands? Or will he pull the door to his closet shut once more?
So there are four types of people who are reading this book. (okay maybe more, but I'm focusing on these...)
1. Those looking for a love story.
2. Those looking for red hot lust filled orgasm inducing sex.
3. Those that are looking to try out the M/M genre.
4. All of the above...
Group one will fall head over heals for the sexy sweet man that is Wells. They will cry out at the injustice and heartbreak. They will literally cry at the last one...in the first freaking chapter. Once they buck up, they will be lead on a painful journey. Heartache, heartbreak, and heartburn- okay, so the last one might just be me. (I was reading all night.) Group one will see the beauty and the pain, they will cheer and hurt with Matty and Wells. It will be a great story for them.
Group two. Shakes head in mock scorn. You want a little bump and grind. Some naughty fun times. You aren't afraid to be judged. You own it. I'm proud because yeah, me too. While this book isn't a porn or smut filled book, it has some serious panty melting scenes. Some are hedonistic romps and others sweet gentle love making sessions. It has all your special "fun times" covered. Especially with the extra pressure of keeping things under the radar... You will really enjoy your naughty self stroke for stroke.
Group three- you are the ones I am most interested in calming. I was in your shoes once. I was nervous, freaked out, and generally not sure I wanted to go there. When I first started reading M/M, I thought it would be awkward. Not the writing and certainly not the "acts" but my reaction. I am a hetero chick with zero porn, Tumblr, or anything other than HBO's True Blood under my belt. I've never been exposed to male/male in that context. So reading it felt incredibly personal...I know its a weird reaction! Anyway, Two Man Advantage is an almost perfect "gateway drug" into the genre. Its high on the relationship and loving but with enough naughty bits to really decide just how hot M/M makes you. (REALLY FREAKING- in my case)
Group four- you are my peeps and I salute you! But since I already covered all the other groups, I say go forth and read this hot man candy love fest. Enjoy the bittersweet romance, the drama, the angst, the smoking hot sex, and the perfect blend of two men.
By the way, for you hold outs that are still reading this (I'm totally impressed) I just wanted to say this title is so perfect. It made me giddy.
Enjoy Two Man Advantage while I go buy a bunch of Toni Aleo's backlist and get acquainted!

If you’ve read this author’s books previously you’ll know that she always gives us characters that are real you may not like some of the things they do or say but they are authentic.
Wells and Matty are both players in the macho world of the NHL and they are deeply in love, the problem is Matty hasn’t come out to anyone. When Wells gets tired of living and loving in secret he feels that he has no option but to let him go.
What Toni gives us is a very honest portrayal of a young man strangled emotionally by fear of what friends and family will feel when they learn he is gay. The raw emotion of the story bleeds from every page, it’s heartbreaking because it’s real it’s what some people feel and deal with every day. The thing that shines, however, is the love between these two beautiful men, their passion is intoxicating their love is strong and unbreakable.
I loved Wells and Matty they are characters that just fit together. At time’s I got so angry but it’s a necessary part of the story, but I laughed at Wells crazy family I smiled at Matty’s mum and sister and I rejoiced in their happiness.
This is the author’s first m/m story and she rocked it, I really hope it’s not the last time she gives us a book in this genre.

About the Author
My name is Toni Aleo and I’m a total dork.
I am a wife, mother of two and a bulldog, and also a hopeless romantic.
I am the biggest Shea Weber fan ever, and can be found during hockey season with my nose pressed against the Bridgestone Arena’s glass, watching my Nashville Predators play!
When my nose isn’t pressed against the glass, I enjoy going to my husband and son’s hockey games, my daughter’s dance competition, hanging with my best friends, taking pictures, scrapbooking, and reading the latest romance novel.
I have a slight Disney and Harry Potter obsession, I love things that sparkle, I love the color pink, I might have been a Disney Princess in a past life… probably Belle.
… and did I mention I love hockey?
