This is the official website of romantic-suspense author Sidney Bell. Hard Line, the second book in my Woodbury Boys trilogy, is on sale now in paperback and ebook from Carina Press. The third and final book, Rough Trade, will be out as an ebook on December 3rd, 2018, and in paperback on Christmas day!

There's more information about The Woodbury Boys and my other work under the "Read" tab, and you can peek through my blog. I'll be updating frequently as the release date gets closer, so stay tuned for more info. If you have a comment or a question, or if you're concerned about potential triggers in any of my books, please feel free to email me at sidneybellbooks@gmail.com. 

Hard Line is Available Now!

Premed student Tobias Benton is making amends for his past. He keeps his head down, mouth shut and colors within the lines. But when his close friend Ghost goes missing, Tobias will do whatever it takes to get answers—including using blackmail to enlist some help. The last thing he’s looking for is romance.

Private investigator Sullivan Tate isn’t above a little breaking and entering to solve a case, but when Tobias catches him in the act, it's almost game over. Their uneasy alliance only gets more complicated when Sullivan learns that Tobias shares his interest in kink. Mixing sex and work could kill Sullivan's career, but Tobias's acceptance of Sullivan's darkest urges is nearly impossible to resist. 

Side by side, Tobias and Sullivan spend their days searching for the truth and their nights fulfilling their respective fantasies. But the answers they seek are far more dangerous than they realize, and soon they find themselves fighting for more than just each other.

11/1/17-Original Flash Fiction Release: The Mermaid Game

Boy Meets Boy Reviews is turning four-years-old and they asked me to write a short piece of original flash fiction for the site to celebrate! They sent me a lovely, sexy photo of two hot guys canoodling in a tub as a prompt, and trust me, I was inspired. Go here to read the story and see the pic that started the whole thing rolling. They'll have content from other prominent m/m authors and tons of giveaways (I'm giving away two paperbacks of Loose Cannon!) so take a look for lots of new fiction!
