Thanks to Collin Montes, Theta Alpha Gamma now welcomes gay and bisexual students. Persuading his Uncle Monty, president of the TAG Alumni Association, that the open approach won’t adversely affect TAG’s reputation is Collin’s own first step toward coming out. As long as there are no repercussions, he’ll escape the closet by graduation.
Enter repercussions, stage left: someone rigs the TAG House water heater to launch through the ceiling, then plants a bomb — thankfully unsuccessful — in the fraternity’s basement. Now Collin has his hands full not only trying to convince his uncle that this might not be the work of homophobes, but also dealing with a fratful of brothers worried about their kegger fridge.
Paramedic Eric Dixon can’t stop thinking about the kid he met during a call at his former college fraternity house. The age gap between them is trumped by sexy eyes, so when Eric sees Collin again at the bomb scene, he pursues him. Soon, Eric is dreaming of being a househusband, fighting to keep Collin safe from whoever’s trying to destroy the fraternity, and helping his sweet young thang realize that repercussions sometimes have silver linings.
There is a lot to like in this coming of age romance. Colin is trying to come out but is dealing with old ole boy homophobia from his uncle and cronies.
The aspects of the book that deal with the mystery and the frat changing its ways are fun.
Eric is a wonderful hero but it is a bit too insta love of his part for the romance to have the depth I would like.
I love how smart Collin turns out to be and I do love they way they are together.
The book gets into a bit of overall the top mayhem but it is a good read.
