Helping Hand by Jay Northcote 3 Stars!
Jez Fielding and James MacKenzie–Big Mac to his mates–are in their second year at uni. After partying too hard last year, they make a pact to rein themselves in. While their housemates are out drinking every weekend, Jez and Mac stay in to save cash and focus on their studies.
When Jez suggests watching some porn together, he isn’t expecting Mac to agree to it. One thing leads to another, and soon their arrangement becomes hands-on rather than hands-off. But falling for your ‘straight’ friend can only end badly, unless there’s a chance he might feel the same.
This is a sweet m/m character driven friends to lovers romance between roommates.
The sexy builds and builds and then the love. I like both heroes a great deal and I like the fact that they actually study and write papers like real college students!
A fun read.
