I decided I wasn't going to waste my time this year on books that I wasn't enjoying. Although the previous books were OK (the first was my favorite) this one just isn't doing it for me. The characters aren't clicking. There's no chemistry and the trope just isn't working for me.

Overall, I liked the story, but slightly less than books 1 and 3.

One of the MC's is a rapper. Todd is *not* a fan of rap. I very quickly skimmed the rapping, because I invariably find it kind of silly.

The story was fun and pretty well-paced, with a few short, sexy scenes and some feels, so I'd rate it around 3.5 stars.

Coop is student and....a G-rated gigolo pur sang
Matty an A plus student pur sang

Matty almost an irritating very competitive guy who wants to be the best of the best...
And Coop...shit he does dirty things for the money. Even distracting an A plus student for lower points because an other student can't handle his intellect....

Matty is bullied before and very alert on everything coming his way. He has no friends at all and is very suspicious when Coop invade his space...

I liked it! This felt very fresh for a new adult romance. The characters were both unique and fully developed. They each had their own dreams and a believable back story that really made me root for them. Oh and I really liked that one of the MCs was South Asian.

During the rap paragraphs.

Rap. Paragraphs. And. Beatboxing.

Nothing about any of that is remotely sexy.

It's a testament to the rest of the book that I even have 3 stars to give for the cringeyness that happened on the screen of my kindle this evening.

What did the rest of the book have that managed to pull that whole hot mess from 1 to 3 stars, you may ask??? An accurate portrayal of a nerd. God fucking bless you AJ Truma

I read the first book in this series and loved it. I tend to re-read it every few months. Ethan and Greg to me were fun and well balanced characters.

As the author wrote more in this series the books went downhill. The college theme is great but the characters are piss poor as are the stories.

Coop is hired to distract Matty - Matty is killing the curve in his robotics class and the bully in his class needs a bit of help and Coop needs the money. As we all predicted Coop falls for Matty (as does M

“You fall too hard,” Coop told him between reps. “You go from zero to his-and-his towels. You, my friend, are a goner in sixty seconds.”
Coop is what he likes to call a G-rated gigolo. For a price, he can be your date or wingman and uses his charm to make sure that the night is a sure success. When he finds himself needing money for his family, he ends up taking a not so clean-cut gig that involves Matty, a ultra-focused engineering student.

This book was my least favorite of the 4 in the series. Still readable, but not essential as each book is basically a standalone with a few constant characters threaded throughout.

I think my primary problem with this is that I didn't really like one of the 2 MCs. He was sort of brittle and frustratingly arrogant in a way I never warmed up to even when the other MC pierced his prickly shell.

Not bad, but I probably wouldn't recommend. I would however definitely read more books by this author.

These guys were fun. They were nerdy, bubbly and cute enough to make me bide. The big romantic gesture in the end was truly big and romantic and had me giggling throughout. My brother thought I was on some pill.

It wasn't as hot as the first one and the intimacy was mostly in the feelz I guess. Whatever. Good time spent!
I kind of liked this one for what it was. And for fans of Elle Kennedy and Sarina Bowen: this should be right up your alley (just the MM-variety.)

It is DEFINITELY NA, but I was entertained. It did have a feeling of 'I have read this book before' with the plot-development, but again I liked it for what it was. A sweet NA-romance, with a sort of recognizable plot

My biggest issue with this one was the rap!

Out for the Night is the fourth book in A.J. Truman’s Browerton University series. The stories all feature college guys finding love amidst the backdrop of the university. The books stand alone quite well, and while there are some cameos from past characters, there is nothing here you can’t jump into without having read the others.

Before I go too far, I will say that I think your feelings about this book are largely going to rest on how you feel about Coop. There

DNF. M/M. I'm not rating this book because I skimmed almost all of it. A very predictable plot of a student in need of money being paid to distract another student so he can't study so much and get much better grades than the other students in the class. Of course, the student being paid falls for the guy he's supposed to distract and you know that eventually the distracted student will find out, they break up, they get back together. Very predictable and the characters weren't enough to pull it ...more

Don't let the tattoos fool you

Coop is 100% NERD. The way he earns money puts him in front of his future boyfriend. All through the book I kept waiting for the truth to come out. The closer Coop and Matty got the more I worried. Great story and a strong family message. 4.0 for robots.

*Copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie by the author/publisher for my reading pleasure, a review wasn't a requirement.*

Coop is a G-rated gigolo, someone who plays the bf, wingman or friend for the night. An escort of sorts without the involvement of sex or tongue. Matty is a robotic engineering student. His only focus is getting the highest GPA, so he'll earn an internship. One of Matty's classmates hires Coop to befriend Matty and distract him, so his GPA will fall and the grading curve w

This was a fun book to read. This is a story line that has been done in many different ways and can get old in the telling but the author did great job of showing the diversity and complexity of these characters. I haven't read the other stories in this series but I didn't feel as I was missing pieces by not reading them. This is a complete story in itself. I liked both the main characters and the struggles they had. You can never know what is going on with a person just by looking at the surfac ...more

I am voluntarily reviewing the free advance reader copy I received from the author.

First of all, let me say that I had a lot of fun reading this. Coop's wit was so hilarious that tears were streaming down my face a few times. So needless to say, Coop was definitely my favorite character. He was easy to connect with and was easy to love. (and it wasn't at all to do with his physic). Although, I am very glad the author made use of Coop's bulging "assets" and not just made them for show. (haha) Hot

Cooper is a handsome G-rated gigolo that does what he's good at: making people happy and giving them a good time. He dreams of rapping like the big stars in Hollywood.

Matty is a genious bent on winning the robot competition that will open many doors for his future.

Which such differences, their meeting is not a coincidence. Coop is hired to distract Matty so he can't do all perfect in his exams and get the rest of his classmmates an opportunity to shine. Things go according to plan

Oh man! This story is a teen pop movie in the making except with yummy gay dudes as the lead and in college. LOL

And I loved every moment of it. I'm so excited one of the main characters was an Eastern Indian American and the whole robotics freaked me out. All I could think about was Terminators baby steps. Lol

Great read.

And just to clarify for one of my goodreads friend (u know who u r my lovie) who complained I give high scores to stories with bad sex scenes: It is rare for me to

I am continuing to absolutely love this series. Despite feeling like I should have been more annoyed with and disliked Coop for his secretive behavior, I actually found myself enamored with String Cheese. I loved the idea of a G-Rated gigolo. Despite Kelvin and his HORRIBLE job, Coop was able to stick to his principles regarding no hook ups. I loved what he did for the girl who needed support and confidence. Of cours

I enjoyed Out for the Night quite a bit. Matty is a brilliant, nerdy engineering major who I just wanted to hug all the time after finding out why he was so detached from everyone around him. Coop calls himself a "G-rated gigolo" who is hired by other students for various roles, events, etc. Deep down, though, he is a nerd just like Matty. Having quite the nerdy side myself, I loved that aspect of each of their personalities. They were adorably awkward together at times but in the best way. I li ...more

I wasn't a fan of the "rapping" . It was cringe worthy, reminding me of when you're in elementary school and the teacher decides to rap to try to gather interest for whatever they are trying to teach. I do admit that I'm not a fan of lyrics taking over paragraphs in books I'm reading, so that somewhat factors into my rating. That, and the fact that Coop's lyricism is just plain bad, like something I'd have come up with as a twelve year old.

I don’t usually read gay romance books but this one was on sale with Amazon and I decided to live a little. It’s got an interesting story interspersed with a few crude comments or scenes. I find it cheesy like a lot of romance books are; to me anyway. I did not like the parts with the rapping but I found I could relate to the main character and understand the problems he faced. Of course, the ending was predictable and yet happy. Many gay films and books these days end not so happily but this on ...more

I was torn about reading this book. Because of the mixed reviews, I didn't think I would like it as well as the others in the series. It was a cute story and I liked the characters. Glad I took a chance and read it.
