Publisher's Summary

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 frat full 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.

This one bothered me a lot.

*2.5 stars*

Even Nick J. Russo couldn't save this audiobook.

I vaguely remembered this story from when I read it in ebook form years ago, but I was not prepared for how much the audio would annoy me. I'm talking nicknames every single page, and annoying ones too, like "sweet baby boy" and "sweet young thang," but said in a serious tone. I couldn't handle it read out loud to me. It was suffocating, and it highlighted the age difference between the two MCs, but in a bad way, not in a sexy way.

I also really struggled with the insta-love this time around. Collin and Eric were so extremely insta-lovey as a couple. Eric was the more intense one of the two, even to go as far as creeping me out a little bit. He was so over-the-top with the nicknames and the lovey stuff that it ended up making me shut down. It made me disconnect from the story.

Now, the story isn't without it's merits. The rest of the frat house boys were hysterical, and I loved all the parts where the frat guys were trying to be all PC and sensitive. That was the best. I wish the author had focused more on keeping this book in that tone. However, the plot became too cumbersome and convoluted, and dragged on too long. I found myself wanting to switch to another audiobook, which is a terrible sign.

While I always enjoy Nick J. Russo's narration, I think this wasn't his best. The MCs' voices were too similar, and I much preferred the narrator's performance in the other books in the series.

A downgrade from my previous ebook rating, which is probably from a combo of changing tastes/getting more picky and actually hearing some of those nicknames out loud. *shutter*

more frat boys and more loving

Love, adventure, excitement, sex, old country grape vines bombs, and hearing it through the grape vines. Oh yeah and there is plenty more where that came from.
