Top Secret by Sabrina Bowen & Elle Kennedy Book Review M/M Romance


This book was good, while I definitely prefer their other work (the Him, Us duology) it was nice to get back to their jointed writing/work. 

I found myself, as always with their books, laughing and having a great time. I wanted more however, it felt a little short and like certain parts were missing to really make it a new favorite of mine, it simply wasn't as addictive or as romantic as I wanted it/expected it to be. 

The story truly begins when one of our MC's long time girlfriend wants to have a threesome with another guy. That's when under alias's our MCS begin their interaction and slow burn caring/being in lust with each other. The fact that one of them was in a relationship when it all began and (even though the gf asked for the threesome) did not tell his girlfriend he was sexting another guy with that purpose, rubbed me the wrong way. 

A good thing is that it is solved, fairly fast so there is not a truly 'cheating' plot to the book, just a feeling I had while reading those scenes.

They are coincidentally also both in the run for the "presidency" of their frat house and sort of enemies (but not really, a complicated situation explained in the book, which I won't touch on because Spoilers !) which makes things complicated since one of them is rich and the other a "living on scholarship" (and being a male stripper he is also bi, which thanks for the rep !) money. 

The storyline follows a pretty solid, bi MC and a MC that had a girlfriend and realizes he's attracted to men in college cliché which I personally don't mind (no worries not a gay for you, rather a oh did not know that about myself).

Overall, I had a good time reading it, but I am not certain I will ever re-read it fully, maybe some parts of it, but nothing stood out from it. To me this is more of a one-time great time read, than a will re-read this a couple of times.

4/5 stars
