Ridiculous hot and sweetly uplifting college romance

56363885._SY475_By the Numbers by K.M. Neuhold

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ridiculously hot and also still really sweet and uplifting.

This is Pax’s brother Theo’s story, and it was interesting to see the progression from him realising he wasn’t actually in love with Elijah to being totally aware of his feelings for actual genius Alex.

I loved Alex, he’s never had the chance to be a normal child or experience anything fun just for the sake of it.

He’s a literal genius, at college studying for a PhD even though he’s not yet 20, and he’s following a path he isn’t really sure he wants.

Sex is his distraction tool, and he uses his nerdy persona to the max to get some semblance of normality.

That is, until Theo offers him not only his friendship but also insights into what it would be like to live a ‘normal’ life doing something he truly loves.

This book has one of the most intense sex scenes I’ve read, which I won’t spoil, but it was perfectly written to skilfully skirt the line between the insane hotness and the element of potentially stepping over a line (don’t worry it’s not a taboo or extreme kink.

I loved it!

The World According to Liam__ jpg

Blurb

When you see the world through the eyes of a child, there’s magic everywhere.

And crumbs. Lots of crumbs…

But that’s not going to stop Mike and Bryn Kneller from traveling with their nephew Liam at their side. Not that deciding to take the lad to visit Bryn’s homeland was an easy decision for the two recently wedded men despite how much they adore the boy. This trip was supposed to be a romantic anniversary trip after all.

However, life, as it does, tends to lead us down a path of its own choosing. Combining an unexpected announcement from a family member with the not-so-subtle pleadings of Bryn’s parents, the decision was made. With lots of hand sanitizer and a heaping helping of patience, the journey begins, leading Bryn and Mike to discover a great deal about themselves, their marriage, and their plans for the future.

Perfect intro to this new expanded World of True North from Sarina

ROOMMATERoommate by Sarina Bowen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This standalone book is the perfect introduction to the new wider World of True North which is coming soon.

Sarina’s duo Him/Us with Elle Kennedy were two of the first books I read in this genre and Wesmie remain one of my favourite couples.

I’ve not read any of her MF books though and yet I never felt lost at any point while reading Roommate.

The story here is a familiar one, an out and proud guy falling for a closeted man but there’s more of an interesting back story dating back to their time at school.

There’re other tensions outside of the relationship as well, which help keep the narrative ticking and overall I was engaged throughout in the journey Kieran and Roddy take to happiness.

One thing I appreciated a lot was that there was no unnecessary drama or angsting just to add plot points.

There are moments when both men’s histories plays a role in them not opening up in a beneficial way, but they were totally understandable.

I’m very much looking forward to reading the rest of the LGBTQ series, which will centre around a bar called Vino & Veritas.
