*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.

If you could sum up Frat Boy and Toppy in three words, what would they be?
Adorable, Fun, Hot
What did you like best about this story?
Brad goes from unsure about his sexuality and about what he wants to do with his life even while living a lie all the way to certainty and direction. He knew what would make him happy and didn't let fear or complications turn him aside. And he was adorable and endearing through it all.
What does Nick J. Russo bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
As I have actually both read and listened to the book, I can say with certainty that he most definitely adds to this story. His interpretation of character voices, pace, emotion and overall story lined up with what I already had in my head from when I read it. I also felt that many things got some extra sparkle and notice that didn't stand out for me before.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Yes, Sebastian's epiphany about love.
All along, Sebastian swears he doesn't know what it is and definitely doesn't feel it. He has his example of a broken home and his own long string of strictly physical and quick ending hook-ups. He doesn't even realize what the reader does once Brad is in his life. So it was extra sweet when he finally gets it and has to fix what he broke.
Any additional comments?
The author has a good grasp of the Theta Alpha Gamma world she created and portrays it with humor, but warmth. Her cast of characters all are interesting. It will be fun to get more of the series.
