Carlos Valendez has everything under control: his boxing career, his academic life and the string of men who never manage to encourage more than a passing interest. When his friend Michael Dywer moves into his dorm room, he never imagines how easily it could all change.

I'm being generous with the three stars because there were several things that drove me crazy in this book. First, I never really like Carlos. He was an egotistical ahole who pressured his roommate into having sex with him. It just felt really sleezy. Even worse, he didn't prep or use lube with Michael and Michael was an anal sex virgin. WTF? Unforgivable and just plain icky. While the details drove me nuts, the writing style and flow was really nice hence the 3 stars. ...more

To my ratings (thanks to amazon I had to change it again and 'upgrade' it a little bit.):

5* - very very good and rare (it would be a Blow-
Away-book like 'Liberty' from Seth Kann ing,
'Save that he kids' series from EM Leya or
'Jesse's Smile' from Angelique Jurd), it's like
an A+

4* - very good and will be often reread and is a
WOW-book with interesting plot and surprises
(like most of Andrew Grey books) it's like an A

3,5* - a really good book, which will
carlos is focused on his boxing career and doesn't have time for distractions. when michael moves into the house that he shares with his roommates, he is definitely a distraction. michael, however, doesn't seem to be afflicted in the same manner...until he hints that he might be. then carlos has to decide which is a priority in his life.

what i liked: nothing.

what i didn't like: the writing, the characters. it felt as though i never really got to know either main characters or the reason

Carlos, a gay athlete, seduces Michael, his straight roommate who it turns out is not-so-straight. It was supposed to be just a fling, they weren't supposed to fall in love, and they were supposed to each continue on their own paths in life. But sometimes things don't turn out the way they are supposed to. Sexy and romantic. ...more

I read. I write. I talk too much and don't blog nearly as much as I should. And my muse consists of several voices in my head with a moody ringleader. Don't be scared of the voices. They mean well (most of the time).

I write romance, erotic romance, fantasy, mainstream fiction and the rare spiritual fiction.

You can find me at my website, facebook (profile)/ page, and twitter.

“Before he could stop himself, Carlos pulled Michael down into a kiss, letting his lips and tongue communicate everything he'd been bottling up for days – months, if he was being honest with himself. Michael responded with a tenderness that begged to be answered, plying his mouth with soft, teasing kisses until Carlos pulled away, moving until their lips were a hairsbreadth apart.

“We don't have to stop,” Michael whispered.”
“If you're not honest about what you want, you're never going to get anywhere.” 3 likes
