Blurb: Bottoms up!
If a college freshman can’t get laid in sun-drenched Miami, he’s doing something wrong. Frankie Perez is determined to help his roommate get some man action in any way possible.
When Frankie’s arsenal of dating apps, fashion advice, and playing-hard-to-get lessons doesn’t work, he realizes Jeremy needs remedial help. Except tutoring Jeremy in the art of sex gets steamier than Frankie expected—and it scares the hell out of him.
Jeremy’s not sure why he’s wasting his time hooking up when he’s only got eyes for the slinky, sexy roommate he comes home to at night. But the hotter their chemistry simmers, the quicker Frankie dances away.
In near desperation, Frankie suggests the two of them team up to find a third to top them both, forgetting that two bottoms aren’t immune from lusting after each other. In a world where every man is an option, choosing one to love can be the sexiest risk of all.
Review: Jeremy is a hockey-boy-shaped-Wisconsin-farm-boy in Miami, living at the dorms with Frankie a South Beach twink. Both, however, are bottom-boys and unwilling to change.
Jeremy wishes desperately to lose his virgin status, but can’t find “the one”. Instead he and Frankie go on a host of “dating” sites and to parties and do all sorts of crazy things to get Jeremy laid that end up failing miserably. One day, Frankie comes up with the idea of a “Twofer” – offering to join a threeway so that Jeremy will have “backup” for his first time.
What they find out is that the two boys care for each other greatly and that sometimes you need a little help in any relationship.
So… I’ll just up and say that this was weird. I really wanted to like it, and there were parts that I did like, but in general it just didn’t feel “right”.
First, these guys are so young and they act young and I didn’t get a good feeling that this was gonna be a “forever” relationship though it’s played that way.
I understand where they’re headed and I appreciate the idea that there is more to love than sex, but I guess I felt like these guys didn’t really do much “relationship” stuff so much as playing around and then hooking up with other guys.
It’s hard for me to get behind this relationship that just feels “off”.
The writing is ok and the characters are cute, but I guess this just wasn’t a book that pushed any of my buttons.
If you love college age romps with gay virgins and a lot of non-MC sex… this is a great book for you.
Overall Impression: It was good
