Wanking with a mate isn’t gay—as long as you keep your hands to yourself.

Jez Fielding and James MacKenzie—Big Mac to his mates—are in their second year at uni. After partying too hard last year, they make a pact to rein themselves in. While their housemates are out drinking every weekend, Jez and Mac stay in to save cash and focus on their studies.

When Jez suggests watching some porn together, he isn’t expecting Mac to agree to it. One thing leads to another, and soon their arrangement becomes hands-on rather than hands-off. But falling for your straight friend can only end badly, unless there’s a chance he might feel the same.

There’s really only one word to describe this book:

I knew I was going to read this as soon as I read:

    *College setting
    *Roomates
    *Friends to lovers
    *GFY

I was all over this like white on rice! And boy did it deliver! It’s the story of two bored college roommates that stay behind while everyone else has gone out partying for the night. They decide to watch some – porn together- cause well, why not? What could happen between a closeted bisexual and his straight roommate?

Well, it starts off kinda innocent…

Gaaah! This book was so yummy! I loved it all- the experimenting, the secret touches, and the way she developed their growing feelings for one another! The way the author was able to go from steaming hot to sweet to heartbreaking back to romantic.

My only complaint is the lack of epilogue. I would’ve liked a better ending. Other than that this was a solid read. My favorite by far from this author. 4.5 Stars rounded up!

I’m a romance junkie, who loves when books make her cry from heartbreak and happiness.

A few of my favorite tropes:

-Friends to lovers
-Hurt/comfort/healing
-Age gap
