SinnerThree, 21. Finance major. Secretly a male dancer. Hot AF.

SinnerThree: Hey, nothing wrong with pushing your boundaries… 
LobsterShorts: Tell that to my control-freak father. Anyway. What if this threesome is awkward?

I absolutely freaked when I found out about this “Top Secret” book…but in a good way of course.

These authors are wonderful when they write their own stories (and I have read many of them), but when they put their minds together…they create absolute MAGIC. Case in point “Him” and “Us“. Two of my all time favorite books!! So you can understand that I HAD to read this one. I just knew it was gonna be another favorite. Spoiler alert: it was!!

This is a wonderful “enemies to lovers” kind of story, which is one of my favorite tropes. They are also quite the “opposites attract” kind, so that was an extra bonus, as was the exploratory gay sex. 😉 Yummmmmmmy!

Keaton is a rich jock, running for frat president Alpha Delt because his dad wants him to. He has been in a relationship with the same girlfriend since high school, and he is quite the “people pleaser“. Hence him trying to find a guy, to take part in a threesome with him and his girl…because she asked for it as a birthday present.

Under the name of “Lobsterpants” he joins “Kinky“, a special kind of dating app, which is where he meets “SinnerThree“.

Luke is in the same frat as Keaton and he is also running for frat president. Just not for the same reasons. Luke is dirt poor, and knowing that the president of the frat gets free housing, is enough incentive for him. Even if most of his frat brothers hate him. 

Luke is also a regular on “Kinky” under the name “SinnerThree” where he likes to hook up with couples…they can be gay or straight…Luke doesn’t care because he likes both. 😉 And so he meets Lobsterpants and the fun begins. 😛

It was wonderful to see these guys texting back and forth. I laughed my ass off. They were both great guys, though I have to say that Luke did annoy me a bit towards the end…Keaton…he is the man!!! I just loved him and his Lobster shorts!!!

The steam was HOT…I mean gay virgin here…but they were also really cute together!!!

Now for those of you wondering…no, this isn’t a love triangle. The girlfriend does play a part but for me, she was pretty insignificant. I myself didn’t really like her but that was because of some choices she made. She plays no real part in the relationship that Keaton and Luke have. I know for some, it’s really important to know…I had a great time reading this one and I will definitely be re-reading it again and again in the future.

I highly recommend and I hope we will get some more from these two amazing authors!!
