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.
Frat Boy and Toppy by Anne Tenino is a delightfully humorous romance that is thought-provoking and deliciously erotic. Brad’s realization that he is gay leads to journey of self-discovery and a really hot relationship with sexy teacher’s assistant Sebastian.
Brad and Sebastian are well-developed protagonists that are three-dimensional with realistic flaws and imperfections. Brad is a very sweet guy who is eager to explore his sexuality once he accepts that he is gay. His self-deprecating humor and inner dialogue are hilarious and his shyness around Sebastian is adorable.
Older, self-confident, and experienced, Sebastian is the complete opposite of Brad. While he is an enthusiastic lover who is happy to experiment with Brad, he keeps his emotions tightly reined in. With most of the story coming from Brad’s point of view, Sebastian is a more difficult character to get to know.
Frat Boy and Toppy by Anne Tenino is a fabulous character driven novel that is a light-hearted and fun read. It is an entertaining romance that has plenty of witty dialogue, a fresh storyline and a charming cast of secondary characters. Brad and Sebastian are appealing protagonists and their sex scenes are smokin’ hot. A quick, satisfying story that fans of male/male romances are sure to enjoy.
