“No one likes having their secrets exposed, especially when they’re this hot!”
Nerdy, little omega, Dave, always told himself that he was too busy to have an alpha. He filled that hole in his life with an obsession with Chad, the star quarterback of his university’s football team. Dave anonymously shared his most lurid fantasies about Chad online; fan fiction, thirst tweets, the works. Dave never thought Chad would approach him looking for a tutor.
Chad had the hots for Dave for years. But after he accidentally caused Dave to get publicly humiliated, Chad could never work up the nerve to talk to the omega. One bad test grade gave Chad the perfect excuse to get close to the omega he’d been pining for, Dave was the best biology tutor on campus.
They both have dirty secrets they are keeping from each other. And they are both going to get exposed; one by a slip of the tongue, the other by a jealous rival. Will the truth be too much for them to handle? Or will it reveal they are a perfect match?
Rating: 3 cups
Dave lusts after Chad from afar, not realizing Chad is doing the same thing. Mutual secret lust is revealed thanks to hormones and scent after Chad gets up the courage to talk to Dave. Nerd + Jock = Steamy Love.
This book is the kind you'd grab if you are looking for a short, easy read. It felt like a guilty pleasure to me, especially for those familiar with fan fiction. It's a dream come true, fan fiction coming to life. Dave's damned pleased about it and what fan fiction writer wouldn't be?
Dave is smart and focuses on his studies when not dreaming about Chad's body. His greatest wish (aside from having Chad) seems to be going unnoticed. He is pretty invisible until a school newspaper article. Chad is the star quarterback. Very confident in his body and loves showing it off. However, he's not a cocky asshole. I liked both main characters. I've seen similar characters before but I'm not surprised, given the length of the book.
The story isn't anything unique or particularly special but I didn't need it to be. The antagonist's part in the story could have been written better at the end; the length could have been a detriment in the lack of development I felt. The negative that stands out the most is an easily fixed on. Parts of the first sex scene is repeated. As a reader, I found reading a section that is repeated disorienting. For a second, I thought maybe I'd skipped back a page or two on my kindle. I found out, I hadn't. Eliminating that repeated section would be helpful to get the momentum of the scene. It was disruptive to the flow and that tends to dig at me. The flow came back but the disruption wasn't easily forgotten. I'm a bit obsessive with flow. Sue me. (Don't really, I barely have two cents to rub together. Don't kick a girl when she's broke).
While mpreg is mentioned and does happen, it's not given a lot of plot time. This is more of an alpha/omega story than an actual mpreg story.
I enjoyed this book. It's the kind of book I'd go to when I'm tired and don't want to think a lot. It's a book to simply enjoy, not one for deep thoughts. Quick, short, sexy story. If you're looking for a book like that, this one is for you. I, personally, have my days I want a book like that. I'll be interested to see what else this author writes in the future.
Hi. My name is Jordan K Prince. I'm an avid reader of MM fiction. I am particularly fond of mpreg; I can never have enough. I'm in the process of writing my first MM novel, mpreg, of course. I live and breathe MM fiction and I enjoy every minute I can spend lost in the worlds I discover there.
