Can college roommates go from friends to lovers?
Kyle: I’m confident that with hard work, my position as point guard can carry me from rural Indiana to the NBA. I also know I’m attracted to guys, but admitting it might disappoint my father, who is all I have in this world. I have big dreams, so I’ll stay in the closet. As long as my life remains scandal-free, I have a shot.
Micah: My large family can’t spare the money to help with my education, but that won’t stop me from studying medicine. I needed to get out of the house I was sharing with my ex before I went insane. Luckily, I heard about a guy looking for a roommate. Living with a straight jock won’t be easy, but it’s a chance I’m willing to take.
This book really got to me, I found myself just really liking the two main characters so much. I just loved the way the author developed the relationship between Kyle and Micah.
Kyle Sweeney is one of the most endearing, kind, hardworking college kids you will ever meet. He is a basketball player full of talent, morals and integrity. He does however have one very big secret, Kyle is gay. Kyle is so deeply in the closet and has no intention of coming out. When Kyle needs a new roommate, the last person he is expecting is the team's trainer's assistant Micah.
How is Kyle going to keep his secret when he's sharing a dorm room with the adorable Micah?
Micah is this really smart, openly gay pre-med student badly in need of new housing. Living with Kyle will be tough for him too because the last thing he wants is to lust after the hot, straight athlete. With Kyle's practice schedule and course/class load and Micah's two jobs, they think they'll see very little of each other. Perfect plan, right!
What Kyle and Micah didn't count on was becoming best friends. They begin to share almost everything with each other, including some secrets. Eventually they each have to decide to trust in each other and most importantly, in themselves.
Kyle and Micah are such a good team, two guys who seem so different and yet.... This really is a good book, I'm not someone who reads a lot of college age romance, but this is one done really well!
