Sweet Young Thang

Theta Alpha Gamma, #3

I want to start by saying I love these Theta Alpha Gamma boys. That being said, this was my least favorite book in the series. I just never really felt the magic between these two, like I have with the other couples. This book focuses on Collin and Eric. Eric is a much older paramedic who answers the call when the frat house catches on fire. He and Collin end up starting a relationship after this. The relationship moved too quickly for me, especially with the age gap. I would have liked to see this subject taken a little more seriously and a little more thought put into the dynamics of it.

The writing was good, but for some reason I just never felt the connection with Eric and Collin that I wanted to. They fell for each other very quickly, and it was more an insta-love, which is really not my thing when reading stories. Overall, this is a nice story but not a great story. If you haven't read anything else in this series, don't start here. Go to the beginning and start there. That book I loved. Other books in the series after this, I loved. This book I just liked.

For me, the highlight of the story was the frat guys. Their "sensitivity training" had me in stitches. Those guys are a bunch of idiots, but man, I just can't help but love them. If you enjoyed this book, that's good. If you didn't, don't give up on the series. "Poster Boy" is coming, and it's awesome. You don't want to miss it, so keep reading.

Book Blurb for Sweet Young Thang

When Plan A fails, turn to Man A.

Thanks to Collin Montes, Theta Alpha Gamma now welcomes gay and bisexual students. Persuading his Uncle Monty, president of the TAG Alumni Association, that the open approach won’t adversely affect TAG’s reputation is Collin’s own first step toward coming out. As long as there are no repercussions, he’ll escape the closet by graduation.

Enter repercussions, stage left: someone rigs the TAG House water heater to launch through the ceiling, then plants a bomb—thankfully unsuccessful—in the fraternity’s basement. Now Collin has his hands full not only trying to convince his uncle that this might not be the work of homophobes, but also dealing with a fratful of brothers worried about their kegger fridge.

Paramedic Eric Dixon can’t stop thinking about the kid he met during a call at his former college fraternity house. The age gap between them is trumped by sexy eyes, so when Eric sees Collin again at the bomb scene, he pursues him. Soon, Eric is dreaming of being a househusband, fighting to keep Collin safe from whoever’s trying to destroy the fraternity, and helping his sweet young thang realize that repercussions sometimes have silver linings.
