Ryan isn't looking for a relationship with a guy--and Johnny isn't looking for a relationship at all.

Ryan's always been attracted to tall, leggy blondes--normally of the female variety. When Johnny catches his eye at a party, Ryan's interest is piqued even though he's never been with a guy before. The attraction is mutual, and the amazing night that follows opens Ryan's eyes to his bisexuality.

Experience has taught Johnny that love hurts. Staying single is safer, and there's no need for complicated relationships when hooking up is easy. When he moves in next door to Ryan, they're both interested in picking up where they left off, and it seems like an ideal arrangement: convenient, mutually satisfying, and with no strings attached.

Despite their best intentions to keep things casual, they develop an emotional connection alongside the physical one. Both begin to want more from the relationship but are afraid to admit it. If they're going to work things out, they need to start being honest--first with themselves, and then with each other.

Okay

Book Cover

  • Meh^

Engagement

  • Memorable after I put it down for a few hours

Likes

  • We get to experience the story from both main characters' points of view...
  • That the author actually made a point to mention that Ryan went to bed without washing his hands/showering after he rimmed/fingered Johnny*
  • You wouldn't think a prostate examination scene would be hot, but it was in this case
  • That it doesn't feel like Ryan or Johnny are leading each other on; they know the score
  • Ryan's parents were cool; they seemed to really care about him and tried hard to get the terminology correct

Character Depth

  • Hip deep

Mood Upon Completion

  • Happy

Grammar

  • Very few/no typos

Sex Scenes

  • Decently hot
  • Decently sweet

Dislikes

  • …but we mostly got Johnny's view of issues concerning Ryan, so we really didn't get to know him that well
  • Big misunderstanding - sigh
  • Oddly enough, there was a lot of sex in this book...almost to the point where I'm just skimming through it because it's just more of the same - so I guess there was a lot of UNORIGINAL sex

Emotional Depth

  • Weakly emotional

Content Warnings

  • Drug Use (consensual, alcohol, major, one, present)
  • Cheating (minor, one, past)

^Consistent with others in the series
__________

I don’t believe I’ve read all of the books in this series; they probably didn’t interest me.
__________

Only 6% in, and it felt like Ryan went from 0 to 60; no easing into the whole bisexual thing at all
__________

*No one ever brings this up…eww. Get some mouthwash, toothpaste, a good hand brush, something!
__________

I was unsure to put crossdressing down as a kink for this book, so I didn’t – and here’s why: most of the time, it’s not about the sexual aspect or even a fetish for the wearer. It’s about having the freedom to wear whatever they want to wear because it feels nice and boosts their confidence.
