Genre: M/M, Romance, New Adult
Blurb: Ethan may have followed his high school sweetheart to college only to get dumped his first day there, but he’s not going to let that stop him from exploring all his new life has to offer. Sex-only hookups, his photography, new friends and a campus-wide game of zombies vs humans all help keep his mind off his broken heart and move him toward building a new, better life without his ex.
And then there’s Wyatt. Mysterious, grouchy—hot. And possibly not gay. But Ethan’s not going to let that stand in the way of figuring out what makes Wyatt tick. New college goal? Get Wyatt into bed and into Ethan’s life.
Step one: arrange a “tutoring” date. Step two: “accidentally” bump into Wyatt as often as possible. Step three: explore the sexy body under that ever-present hoodie. And when their friendship deepens into something neither of them expect, convince Wyatt he’s not just a pity fling or a one-time hookup, but that Ethan is in it for the long haul.
This was a really short story I liked. I really liked how the story started; after being dumped by his boyfriend that he followed to college (that he freaking followed to college) the moment he gets there, Ethan devised a plan for getting him back. That’s how he met Wyatt; dark, mysterious, hoodie wearing guy, who also happens to be Ethan’s ex’s roommate.
It was fun getting to know the characters, especially the side characters. But what was more interesting was getting to know Wyatt.
I loved Wyatt, his character was so interesting, giving that it was my first time reading about a character like him. I liked finding out what made him tick along side Ethan. I loved reading about him (I think I said that already).
There wasn’t much depth to Ethan’s character, which was boring to read. I still loved him though.
The story had a really good plot twist, considering, the way the events unfold was really unexpected.
Overall it was a fun, sexy short read which was a bit of an emotional roller coaster and I can’t wait to continue reading about them.
