A closeted gay theater major and a questioning college football superstar fall for each other after being assigned as roommates. Can two people from such different worlds make it work?

Sean learned early on that being gay wasn’t okay, and he’s always been very careful to avoid letting anyone even guess that he’s far more interested in romance with a man than a woman. Which

Almost 3 stars
The fact that the asshole teammate and coach didn’t get their comeuppance ruined the ending for me.
Otherwise, it was a so-so book. Nothing to call home about.

Brooks and Knight reliably churn out sweet, feel good romances that go down perfectly when that's what you're in the mood for, and this book is no exception to their track record. They don't redefine the genre, but what they do very well is avoid tropes. I've read enough MM romance at this point to know some, uninspired, insipid authors "go to" is to make women characters awful. I'm not even sure what the subtext of that is, "hey women are awful aren't gay guys lucky they don't have to deal with ...more

I am in between two and three stars on this one. The writing is okay, the characters are wonderful. I love the relationship between Sean and Josh. I like how both characters are described and how different they are. What I struggled badly with was Josh being on a football scholarship at a large division I school and really not talking about his games and practice. He would not have any time to do anything else and definitely wouldn't be getting drunk on a Friday night when College football play ...more

This book was well written and believable. I could actually imagine myself in the main characters shoes both physically and emotionally. Even the sex scenes were creatively tasteful and passionate with sweet loving emotional feelings that it sucked me right in to where my imagination let me feel everything that Irene,Josh, and Sean felt. The 4 stars was do to some repetitive story lines and some wording and grammar errors. Otherwise, a wonderful story w/ a HEA ending❤️👍🏻👌🏻

I really wanted to give this 4 stars.. Truly...

The story was just more than a little implausible. The MCs with their stereotypical jock and theater major ran into the same bigotry that is common in m/m relationships. Testosterone driven football players with their ignorant coach, family drama. Sure, all that I can get. However, there were no real surprises to cast this story as being different from any other college m/m romance.

It was like the author was writing from the same formula as everyon

This is a sweet romance between two guys that are questioning their sexual preferences. Sean has been hiding from everyone, including himself, and it might be time he came out. Josh has been interested in girls, but thinks he might be bi. One look at Sean and he is pretty sure about who he wants.

This is a nice book about new love and the troubles that can arise arid it. Give this book a try.

Good characters, but ultimately the ending felt rushed with a lot of loose ends to me. Family especially, but also... (view spoiler) ...more

Lovely Book.

Very good romance between college roommates. Sean was into acting and Josh was a football player. They were into each other but it took awhile for them to come together. Very tender and sexy and very supportive of each other. Loved Sean 's.temper.and Josh triying to calm him down . Very supportive family on Josh's part.

The bonding of two souls

Will always run deeper than what gender or color you are as love is love. Bigotry has no rights and should never be deemed acceptable.

These characters were diversely adorable and I can't wait to read the additional chapter.

The story of an actor and a jock.

One bisexual and one thinking he was straight but learning he is gay. Through adversity they cling to each other and come to love each other.

Just Acting is wonderful.
I love how Josh and Sean meet in a wild way in English class and then find out they are roommates.
Such a wonderful way to believe in true love.

DNF. I thought that Sean's college professor pressuring him to take a gay lead role in a required play was OTT and unrealistic. I stopped reading at that point. ...more
