Frat Boy and Toppy by Anne Tenino
My rating: 3 of 5 stars
Brad is great at meeting
other people's expectations. But his own? Not so much. Take the gay
thing. Okay, so yeah. It took a morning meeting with a frat brother's
hairy, naked ass for him to admit it, but he knows the truth about
himself now. Let the gay life commence.
Unfortunately, it's not
that easy. He hasn't quite determined how to come out to anyone, even
Sebastian, the geeky-hot TA in his history class. Sebastian is
everything Brad is not. Intellectual, suave, hairy. Out. And he doesn't
seem interested in Brad, even when Brad makes a fool of himself trying
to catch his notice.
Score one for foolery: Sebastian does more
than notice Brad; he takes him to bed. Brad's been with plenty of girls,
but with Sebastian, the sex is something else entirely-hot,
mind-blowing, affirming, and a little domineering in a way that drives
him wild. But when great sex turns into something more-dare he admit the
"L" word?-Brad must face the crushing realization that Sebastian
doesn't feel the same. Unless, of course, he does. After all, even grad
students can be idiots about matters of the heart.
This was a nice feel good coming out story.
Nothing prepares Brad for Sebastian. Brad is a ladies man but when he sees Sebastian the idea of girls goes out the door. He's always questioned his sexuality but he's never said out loud what he's always known in his heart. And Sebastian is doing something crazy to him. He's doesnt want him to but he just cant look away.
Brad has never felt like he was truly himself around anyone including himself. He finally finds himself when he and Sebastian decide to take things to the next level. He's willing to come out because he now knows where his heart is.
Sebastian may seem like the confident person others perceive him as but his lack of stability goes deeper.
Brad brings out a side in Sebastian that he didnt think could ever be thawed. And together they both find its not so hard letting go of the secrets and moving forward with the one you love.
