What a fun and sweet read this was. Brad is a college student who has a well-deserved reputation as a lady's man. He's an athlete and in a fraternity. On the outside Brad appears to have everything, but on the inside he knows he is unhappy and he has secrets.
Sebastian is the teacher's assistant in one of Brad's classes. While girls are throwing themselves at him Brad is fantasying about the smart, sexy scholar. An embarrassing incident brings the two of them together and Brad starts down a whole new path in his life.
These two characters were just great. They both had depth and were likable and funny. Watching them begin a tentative relationship was truly enjoyable. Neither trusts the other's social group and they live different lifestyles. Brad still hides his sexuality and Sebastian very much does not. Despite their differences they find they have enough in common to build a friendship and eventually love.
I really enjoyed this book. It was sweet and funny but still had a great plot. These two guys were also really steamy together and the sex scenes were well done. This was my first time reading this author and I was very pleased. I can't wait to read the rest of the series and check out some of her other works.
Brad is great at meeting other people’s expectations. But his own? Not so much. Take the gay thing. Okay, so yeah. It took a morning meeting with a frat brother’s hairy, naked ass for him to admit it, but he knows the truth about himself now. Let the gay life commence.
Unfortunately, it’s not that easy. He hasn’t quite determined how to come out to anyone, even Sebastian, the geeky-hot TA in his history class. Sebastian is everything Brad is not. Intellectual, suave, hairy. Out. And he doesn’t seem interested in Brad, even when Brad makes a fool of himself trying to catch his notice.
Score one for foolery: Sebastian does more than notice Brad; he takes him to bed. Brad’s been with plenty of girls, but with Sebastian, the sex is something else entirely—hot, mind-blowing, affirming, and a little domineering in a way that drives him wild. But when great sex turns into something more—dare he admit the “L” word?—Brad must face the crushing realization that Sebastian doesn’t feel the same. Unless, of course, he does. After all, even grad students can be idiots about matters of the heart.
