Frat House Troopers (Brandt and Donnelly Caper #1)
This book clearly wanted to be porn. It really did. I was good with that, but then out of the blue there was t ...more

So....I found this one to be odd.
Donnelly and Brandt are cops. Brandt goes undercover to infiltrate a sex cam operation which will require him to "perform" for the public.
Donnelly's straight--or not. Brandt's straight--or not. Double GFY anyone? Not really believable double GFY sadly.
I found a lot of the dialogue cheesy. And the whole premise was pretty far fetched.
At the 59% where I stopped Brandt had just "performed" for Donnelly, so I can't imagine going from "straight" partners ...more
I was looking forward to some porny fun with this book but it really didn't work for me.
Brandt is a cop who goes undercover at an online porn site in order to bust them on tax evasion, because jacking off in front of a camera is a perfect way to find out all about a business's financials. I found the way the whole case went down was just completely plausible and not at all confusing. Really.
To be fair, I didn't go into this book expecting any plausibility when it's just meant to put the chara ...more
I fucking loved this book. I remember reading a variation of it a million years ago on Literotica so I was excited about it coming out as a novel, enough to pre-order it. I would have read it in one sitting if real-life would have let me.
The two MC's, Ethan and Gabriel, State Trooper partners, are as hot as sin and the sex is even hotter. They instantly reminded me of Griff and Dante from the fantastic M/M scorch ...more
Ethan Brandt has a new assignment, one he didn't think he would ever get. He must infiltrate a sex-cam operation. The problem is, he needs to get very naked in order to do it. And the only person he has as back up is his best friend and partner, Gabriel Donnelly. With his help, he has to give the best performance of his life on a webcam, live. Brandt finds himself feeling confused about it all. He is turned on about things he normally wouldn't be. This case ends up changing his life ...more
I should have loved this book. It had all the ingredients necessary to take me to reading bliss. Alas, it wasn't meant to be.
This book took gfy to a whole different level. That level is called irritating. So, every man in this book is straight, and feels the need to talk about how straight they are, until they aren't anymore because they fall face first onto a dick. Standard gfy formula, right? Wrong. Because the characters are apparently still completely heter ...more
Highly unbelievable but enthusiastically written GFY.
From straight cop to "Oops...I love my partner" and readily embracing the gay lifestyle
in a heartbeat.
Suspending disbelief this was a fun read with characters who - after coming together - were very sweet and lovey-dovey together but what killed the story for me was - of all things - the enthusiastic writing:
"His soul had achieved enlightement..."
"And, in an instant, his life began. Warmth spread through him, and a surge of obliteratin ...more
That being said, all the scenes with Bryce were golden. He cracked me right up.
Areas of Concern
*So things were going fine and dandy with Brandt having the only POV and then out of nowhere at 40% the reader gets this POV from a side character who we never see again and who the reader never gets his POV again. Why was this in there????? WHY?
*After that, all of sudden the reader starts getting the POV from both Brandt and now Donnelly. I started getting whipla ...more
This book was smoking hot!
Someone said in their review to check you reality at the door...so I did, and I found this book to be~unrealistically fun!
The book and what I loved~
I love all the character's, the bathtub scene was precious.
I loved when he said Ethan's name during that scene.
I love the investigation and how it worked out.
I love the side character's Bryce and Nester were a woot!

There are a lot of great side characters, including some guys from the House. My favorite was Bryce, the gay clothing expert.
The only thing I didn't love was the seemingly insta love that happened as soon as the guys figured out they wan ...more
It was cute and fun the read. I loved the additional characters of Nick, Bryce, and Nestor. I really thought that Nick was sweet.
The conversations between Ethan and Gabriel were fun to read and I thought the story moved along at a nice pace. I'm really looking forward to reading the second book.
Thanks to Sandi and Amy for reading with me! :)
Disbelief didn't take it too personally when his loving mistress Td told him to take a well needed break, gently pushed him out the door and locked herself away to read about troopers. She doesn't ask this of him often and if he was being honest with himself, a break was very much welcomed.
There was still a need for Disbelief to be vigilant if only in a more relaxed manner and he made himself comfortable outside the door. Whatever reluctance Disbelie ...more

This is some simple shit and that's why it works. (My) passion for reading is directly joined at the hip with the fluidity of my emotions..content in the simple fact..that it never stays the same.
It's not that this is exceptionally humorous material. Instead it's the MC character chemistry and the spontaneity of Donnelly. Their dialogue is not only natura ...more
I'm in the minority here, I know. I liked it okay, I just didn't love it.
Weirdly, I would have liked there to be less sex and more investigation.

"Is it straight to want to rip those shorts off of you? Yeah, I don't care. I've got to see that huge dick."
~Nick~ (who's not the love interest btw..)
Gawd, I can't take this anymore.
First of all, Otila's review explains my issues with this story. Her review is spot on.
I didn't expect much either going into this story, but issue af
That being said, so long as you check your reality before getting started, this is a very enjoyable book. The characters were quite likable, and there was minimal angst when the guys realized they had feelings for each other.
It did all feel a bit too easy all the way around, but this was light, fluffy, and fun, and I recommend it to an ...more
I definitely bookmarked a couple of chapters there. You know, the ones I want read aloud to me again. And again.
There were more than 2 POVs in this book, which is fine by me as long as there is some consistency. Unfortunately, I had the feeling they were popping up every now and then, sometimes never to return.
This was a problem for me especially when I find the supporting character more interesting than the two MCs.

It's very well-written and edited, and I am not surprised that the author is a professor of English. There were some places, however, that the language was too ornate. The MC's coming together was described in the purplest of prose but it was bearable yet, sandwiched as it is between better segments of stronger exposition. (Though in a writing workshop I'd have run my red pen right through it.)

The MC's Ethan and Gabriel relationship was just plain fun and the shopping scenes with the secondary characters Bryce and Nestor had me laughing out loud. If you are looking for a serious police procedural storyline forget it. If ...more

Nestor fanned himself. Bryce’s mouth made a perfect “O” in exactly the right shape to fit over a beautiful, plump cockhead. Donnelly just stared, blinked hard, and stared some more.
“What? You guys all look like you’ve never seen a dick before,” Brandt said, a touch of defensive anger in his voice.
“Honey, I thought I had, but I have been most cruelly misled,” answered Bryce.
