LobsterShorts, 21

Jock. Secretly a science geek. Hot AF.

LobsterShorts: So. Here goes. For her birthday, my girlfriend wants…a threesome.

SinnerThree: Then you’ve come to the right hookup app.

LobsterShorts: [crickets!]


SinnerThree, 21

Finance major. Secretly a male dancer. Hot AF. 

SinnerThree: Well, I’m down if you are. My life is kind of a mess right now. School, work, family stress. Oh, and I live next door to the most annoying dude in the world. I need the distraction. Are you sure you want this?

LobsterShorts: I might want it a little more than I’m willing to admit.

SinnerThree: Hey, nothing wrong with pushing your boundaries...

LobsterShorts: Tell that to my control-freak father. Anyway. What if this threesome is awkward?

SinnerThree: Then it’s awkward. It’s not like we’ll ever have to see each other again. Right? Just promise you won’t fall in love with me.

LobsterShorts: Now wouldn’t that be life-changing...

Omg this is a 5 Star Plus Read and it’s certainly going to be on my best reads of 2019 !!! Keaton is the typical rich handsome jock who is expected to follow in his dad’s footsteps but his heart is not in it and his passion is elsewhere, up and till now he has done what was expected played football and dated a girl that his parents would want him to be with. Keaton is looking for the perfect birthday gift for his girlfriend so when she requests a threesome he jumps online to investigate a possible male match for the two of them. Enter Luke who is the complete opposite of Keaton, he is on an academic scholarship and works as a stripper by night to put food on the table and this is when the fun really begins, what starts off as innocent texting soon turns in sexting and every text is full of witty flirty banter and it’s long into it that these two realise there might be more than just a threesome on the table, maybe the girlfriend isn’t needed in this relationship........ This book captivated it took over and I couldn’t put it down until I had read the final page, I needed to know if these two got past the sexting, if family and friends would accept the love they shared and if they finally get the HEA they deserved. This book has it all, it will make you laugh, it will make you swoon and at times you will be gasping out loud. Top Secret is a MM love story and it has the perfect mix of love, passion, humour and angst. Another great read from from two very talented authors

Not going to lie, this book started out slow for me. I don’t know if it was my state of mind, because I liked Keaton and Luke. Or maybe that it has a pretty big build up and story, which I liked, to get our characters ‘together’. The story didn’t drag, but I seriously thought about setting it aside for now, not shelve it forever, but to pick it up in a bit. I gave it one more try, as I was in about 36% in, and the rest was history. Stayed up all night reading, couldn’t set it down, grabbed the bonus epilogue, and now have Sam Smith playing on a continuous loop in my head, happiness! Luke and Keaton, oh what to say, they were perfect for each other. Complete opposites in their upbringing and lives, but needing the other so much to make them happy, whole, and complete Between Keaton’s desire to make everyone happy, his thirst for scientific knowledge, and his tenacity in pursuing his wants, he was irresistible. Luke with his brooding, life scars, and survival instinct, made you want to wrap him up. Lucky for us, Keaton comes through, and Luke wakes up, but they took us on quite the journey to get there Now, about Annika…….
