It's release day for Campus Cravings, a m/m anthology, featuring an assortment of amazing authors!
I had the pleasure of receiving an ARC and let me tell you, they are so darn good!!
Two standouts for me are:
Private Lessons by KyAnn Waters
Switching Leads by Mia Downing
Oh my hotness!! Both are 5 star stories for me!!
My review of Private Lessons:
Ryan Kane could lose his scholarship and his position on the pitch. Jake Finely offers to help. Only Ryan and Jake discover their private lessons have more to do with sex ed than Business Ethics. When a tenured professor offers Ryan an indecent proposal to make the grade, will he choose soccer or Jake?
Poor Ryan is trying to keep his grades up while playing on Cathia's soccer team. Little does he know that his professor loathes jocks and thinks Ryan is just another stereotypical one. Assistant Professor, Jake, offers to help tutor Ryan which leads to some very steamy and heated sessions. <
The story ended a lot differently than I expected...in a good way!! I love the chemistry between Jake and Ryan. Ryan's teammates also react unexpectedly,which made me smile.
I give this story a 4.5 Star Rating
My review of Switching Leads:
Coach John Graham needs a new assistant for Cathia U's equestrian team. The last person he expects to get the job walks into the barn and stops his heart. How is he supposed to focus on the team when his ex-lover—sexy horse trainer Finn Parker—wants back into his life…and into his bed?
First of all, the chemistry between Finn and John is SMOKING HOT right from the get go. Finn sees a sexy behind underneath the hood of a broken down car. Being the nice guy that he is, he goes to help and find that the sexy behind belongs to his college boyfriend, Finn. Finn is injured and in need of a job, so the Athletic Director names him Assistant Coach of the equestrian team. Too bad John is the head coach and wants nothing to do with Finn.
Throughout the story, the tension between John and Finn is steamy. John has issues going on at home and he needs a good assistant to help take the load off. But, he doesn't want that to be Finn. Seeing him all of the time hurts and creates more stress for John. The scene in the bar where Finn confronts John is one of my favorite moments in the entire story.
I give this story a solid 5 Star Rating
All of the other stories are just as good, but these are the two that really stood out to me. If you are new to the m/m genre, or are looking for a really good m/m read, you will LOVE this group of stories!!
Overall Rating: 4 Stars
