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.
*Third time re-read, this time in audio format!*
Holy crap, this was an excellent audiobook.
Frat Boy and Toppy is one of my comfort reads, and I find myself coming back to it time and time again when I need a pick-me-up. For me, it is a nearly perfect combo of sweet, hot, and light, and I could read it all day, every day. I was a little wary about how I would feel about the audio version. I've had MANY awesome books ruined by a terrible narration. I shouldn't have worried because Nick J. Russo absolutely slam-dunked the reading of this story. He just killed it. You go, bb!!
This book is a fun book about a college frat boy coming to terms with his sexuality. Brad isn't one to dwell or angst over it, though. No, he is the type to get... experimental... and then make a decision. I just LOVED Brad, and I love him more and more with each re-read. Nick J. Russo did a perfect Brad voice, as well as a perfect Sebastian voice, and he made those hot sex scenes even hotter.
I love the light kink in this story. Brad is a total bottom, and I LOVE how turned on he gets by ass-play. There is also some light D/s play that is exactly the kind that I like. YUM.
This book isn't a thinker. It's a total enjoyment read that will MAKE. YOU. SMILE. It is a book that I will continue to read/listen to every single time I have a bad day and I doubt my ability to love a book again. It's short and sweet and everything this girl needs in her life.
