I stumbled across this book yesterday, blurb sounded interesting and I know UTC loves Evangeline Anderson so I gave it a go while I went to get a pedicure.  Well…. I can probably sum up my review in this one sentence: I devoured this book!

It’s short but for the few hours you get to read it there’s a lot of heavy breathing and your heart will definitely be through the roof.  It was kind of funny that at certain times I was checking to make sure nobody around me was looking at my tablet screen.  And then I couldn’t put it down and had to sneak a few lines while I was driving.

Duke and Maverick are roommates.  They are also in the soccer team together.  They are best friends and throughout the four years they’ve lived together they’ve become really close.  Except now they are about to get a whole lot closer.

This story is told only from Mav’s point of view and he’s dealing with being attracted to Duke. Duke doesn’t make things easier as he is always being very close and physical and then there’s the games of gay chicken…and extremely gay chicken.  When they are coming up short to pay their last month of rent they end up posing for some sexy pictures for the Str8te Boys website.  And things just escalate from there.

This story was fun and sexy.  It’s a story of discovery and of dealing with emotions and attraction.  But they both went for it and I was extremely glad for that!

About Evangeline Anderson

Evangeline Anderson is a registered MRI tech who would rather be writing. And yes, she is nerdy enough to have a bumper sticker that says “I’d rather be writing.” Honk if you see her! She is thirty-something and lives in Florida with a husband, a son, and two cats. She had been writing erotic fiction for her own gratification for a number of years before it occurred to her to try and get paid for it. To her delight, she found that it was actually possible to get money for having a dirty mind and she has been writing paranormal and Sci-fi erotica steadily ever since.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

Hey Mariya! Yes, I wish it was a series. You might also enjoy Frat Boy and Toppy by Anne Tenino. It had a little bit of the feel of this one except one guy is openly gay and the jock is just realizing his preferences.
