ARC Review: Practice Makes Perfect (Housemates, #3) by Jay Northcote

Getting experience with the guy next door seems like a great idea—until the lines blur.

Dev, a geeky first year physics student, has zero sexual experience and he’s determined to change that ASAP. After a bad time in halls of residence, he’s starting the summer term with different housemates and a new plan of action.

Ewan lives in the house next door to Dev. He’s young, free and single, and isn’t looking to change that anytime soon. When awkward circumstances throw them together, Ewan offers to help Dev out in the bedroom in return for maths tutoring, and Dev jumps at the chance.

They work their way through Dev’s sex-to-do list, but what starts as a perfect no-strings arrangement gets more complicated as their feelings for each other begin to grow. If they’re going to turn their lessons in lovemaking into something more permanent, they need to work out how they feel about each other—before they get to the end of Dev’s list.

Length: 54,000 words approx. This book is a complete story and can be read as a stand-alone

Jewel's rating:

​​Practice Makes Perfect was the perfect blend of sweet and dirty. I love this series. And it never fails to make me grin like a fool when our beautiful British boys find their happy, with just the perfect amount of angst carry them through.​

Ewen Campbell is a second year uni student, from Glasgow. A ginger with a Scottish accent? Sign me up!​ ​He enjoys being young and single and playing the field. And one day, when he opens a package that was accidentally delivered to him, instead of next door, he discovers that his cute new neighbor might just be gay.​ Of course delivering Dev's new dildo might just be a touch awkward...​and it was - deliciously so.​

Devrim Karadere, or Dev, is a geeky first year student.​ ​He had some pretty awful experiences living in the dorms, but luckily a friend found him a room in a house that is LGBT friendly.​ ​Shy and unsure of himself, when it comes to matters of lust and love, he starts out as so many do, looking for sex in all the wrong places. He feels he'll need some experience before he'll be able to find a boyfriend, so,​​​​he makes a list, as one does, outlining all the things he feels he wants to do this term. Things like make friends, get some sexual experience, find a boyfriend. Dev joins Grindr, hoping to get some experience, but thankfully, Ewen stumbles upon Dev's profile and gives him a better offer. And, certainly, a safer one.

Dev is surprisingly forward when he's sure about something. He took to sex like...well like a teenage boy, actually. With much eagerness. Realizing that feelings are emerging, though, leaves Dev even more out of his element. Ewen was adorably unsure, too, though he really should have realized that he needed to speak up a bit about his emerging feelings.

So much sweetness to be found in these pages! Along with a tiny amount of appropriately easily resolved angst. Loved it, loved it.
