Publisher's Summary

It's easy to become cynical when life never goes your way.
Cole Reid has been a social recluse since he was 15, when he was outed by his high school baseball team. Since then, his obsessive-compulsive behavior and sarcastic nature have driven away most of the population, and everyone else hates him because he's gay. As he sees it, he's bound to repulse any prospective friends, let alone boyfriends, so why bother?
By the time Cole enters college, he's become an anal-retentive loner - but it's not a problem until his roommate graduates and the housing department assigns Ellis Montgomery to move in with Cole. Ellis is messy, gorgeous, straight, and worst of all, a jock!
During a school year filled with frat buddies, camping expeditions, and meddling parents, Cole and Ellis develop a friendship that turns Cole's glass-half-empty outlook on its head. There must be more to Ellis than a fun-loving jock - and maybe Cole's reawakening libido has rekindled his hope for more than camaraderie.

Well, Crap, It's Not Perfect, But I Still Loved It

Yes, just like the characters in the story, the book title is not perfect, it's dorky. Yes, the author changes point of view here and there (and out of blue), but darn it, I really liked the characters and even though there really is nothing very original about the plot and course of the story, I really loved the characters including a neurotic protagonist with his quiet-type lover to be with their friends.The sexual scenes, again, fairly traditional were still very hot and very well done. Narrator Jason Lovett indeed became Cole, bravo!

well crap!

Would you consider the audio edition of My Roommate's a Jock? Well, Crap! to be better than the print version?

absolutely not, I've read the book more than once and loved it but I have no desire to listen to the audio version again.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I love cole, he is quirky

Which character – as performed by Jason Lovett – was your favorite?

I think he did a great job but that being said, I didn't like his voice or something, it just got on my nerves

Any additional comments?

I think it's a great story, It's sweet, funny and a tiny bit of angst.

Not ground breaking, but enjoyable

Any additional comments?

Okay, so if we get over the fact that the jock and the nerd find love genre has been done over and over, it is actually a fairly good story.

Mostly told from Cole's POV, I found the narrator's whiny voice was actually perfect for the character.

Cole is an obsessive neat freak with slight OCD added to the mix and a sense that the universe is out to get him. He is likable, but if you knew such a person in real life, less would definitely be more. I found myself tutting quite a bit as the story went on, purely because I started to find him annoying.

I think though, that is why I finished the story with a good feeling. If someone as annoying as Cole can find someone to love him, then there is hope for us all.
