ARC Review: Twofer by Daisy Harris

From the blurb:

Bottoms up!

If a college freshman can’t get laid in sun-drenched Miami, he’s doing something wrong. Frankie Perez is determined to help his roommate get some man action in any way possible.

When Frankie’s arsenal of dating apps, fashion advice, and playing-hard-to-get lessons doesn’t work, he realizes Jeremy needs remedial help. Except tutoring Jeremy in the art of sex gets steamier than Frankie expected—and it scares the hell out of him.

Jeremy’s not sure why he’s wasting his time hooking up when he’s only got eyes for the slinky, sexy roommate he comes home to at night. But the hotter their chemistry simmers, the quicker Frankie dances away.

In near desperation, Frankie suggests the two of them team up to find a third to top them both, forgetting that two bottoms aren’t immune from lusting after each other. In a world where every man is an option, choosing one to love can be the sexiest risk of all.

Heather's rating:

While not a bad book, I was a little disappointed because I usually like Daisy Harris.

First of all, all people who like their couples to remain strictly monogamous, STAY AWAY! These guys get it on with lots of other people other than each other. I knew about that from the description and was cool with it, so I was mentally prepared.

Frankie and Jeremy were an odd couple for me. I didn't buy their HEA with their constant need to bring others into their relationship (no, the whole "both bottoms" thing didn't magically resolve). I can see why two guys who don't like to bottom would have trouble (some people just don't enjoy the feeling), but I didn't really get how neither or these guys was willing to bang the other. I think you can certainly prefer one over the other, but refusing to top EVER in a committed relationship just seems odd to me.

In addition, these guys were just too young and too immature for me to believe that they will stay together. Mostly, I felt like these two were a couple of convenience and a mismatch with personalities, so I wasn't really digging their dynamics.

I also didn't like Jeremy as a character. I found him to be judgy and irritating, especially with his attitude towards "sluts" in the beginning of the story, and his weird crush on his TA, who he didn't really know at all. I didn't even like his Cinderella-style transformation. I just felt "meh" towards him in general. Frankie was better, though his fear of commitment thing was odd considering how fast he fell for Jeremy.

Though I found this book to be an easy, light read, and to be hot in parts, I can't say that it creeped up beyond just okay for me.
