Bestselling authors Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy return with their first Male / Male romance in 3 years.
LobsterShorts, 21. Jock. Secretly a science geek. Hot AF.
LobsterShorts: So. Here goes. For her birthday, my girlfriend wants…a threesome.
SinnerThree: Then you’ve come to the right hookup app.
LobsterShorts: Have you done this sort of thing before? With another guy?
SinnerThree: All the time. I’m an equal opportunity player. You?
SinnerThree, 21. Finance major. Secretly a male dancer. Hot AF.
SinnerThree: Well, I’m down if you are. My life is kind of a mess right now. School, work, family stress. Oh, and I live next door to the most annoying dude in the world. I need the distraction. Are you sure you want this?
LobsterShorts: I might want it a little more than I’m willing to admit.
SinnerThree: Hey, nothing wrong with pushing your boundaries…
LobsterShorts: Tell that to my control-freak father. Anyway. What if this threesome is awkward?
SinnerThree: Then it’s awkward. It’s not like we’ll ever have to see each other again. Right? Just promise you won’t fall in love with me.
LobsterShorts: Now wouldn’t that be life-changing…
Q&A about Top Secret:
Q: Have we met these characters before in another book?
A: No! These guys are brand new, and we can’t wait for you to meet them.
Q: Is this story MM? Or is it a MMF / MFM / menage?
A: This book is MM.
Q: Is this a love triangle story?
A: Not really. You’ll see.
Fun, fun, super fun. Enemies to lovers, opposites attract, rich kid/poor kid, frat brothers. Pick a trope, any trope. But they all work. Even though the rich kid is REALLY rich and the poor kid is REALLY poor, I don’t ever see how they could end up in the same frat, but whatevs. It’s fiction. The story isn’t great, but it is good, flirty, sexy hot fun.
Honestly, the beginning before they figure out who each other were was my favorite part. The chatting and cyber sex through a hook up app was super hot. But they also were just 2 guys. It just showed how much people can really hide what they want in front of a person. But behind a screen we are much more outgoing and bold.
After they figure it out there is a lot of push and pull with them. Undeniable chemistry, but they hate each other, right? They really enjoyed all of the chatting, but don’t want to look at each other when they pass on the stairs.
Oh wait! They are also both in the running for president of their frat. Good times.
There was a lot of book before they figure their stuff out and while it was entertaining, I think I would have liked it even more if the last part of the book was made longer to bring them full circle. You’ll get it if you read it.
That is not to say that I don’t think you would like the book. You would. I sure did. Even with a million tropes and quite a few cliches, still worth a read for a low angst book that had a little of everything.
I love when there is a lot of texting or chat conversations between main characters. Especially before they meet face to face. I mean that is so prevalent in real life and I love that it is getting more page time. And I’ve seen it- people developing real connections and feelings with someone that they’ve only “met” online.
