SinnerThree: All the time. I'm an equal opportunity player. You?
LobsterShorts: [crickets!]
SinnerThree, 21Finance 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?

Top Secret by Sarina Bowen & Elle Kennedy
5 of 5 stars

This book is way more than I expected. And it is HOT AF! I mean holy sh*t…these women can throw down some words so I should have expected it. But it’s way more than that. I started the book with a preconceived notion of what I was getting into…

I wanted to hate certain characters.
I wasn’t sure who I was initially rooting for.

These ladies took all of that and chucked it out the window. What I got in return was a case of the hots for lobster shorts and a man who hid behind a screen name. 

And in case you were wondering… Lobsters mate for life.

My rating: 4.5 of 5 stars

One of my favorite writing duos are back in action and I couldn’t be happier!! This is a wonderful enemies to lovers story set in college frat house where 2 young men who couldn’t be more different – at least on the surface, develop an unlikely connection. What starts as a chat about a potential threesome (M/F/M) turns into a steamy story about two charming young men whose differences are a lot smaller then they could ever guess.

With every Bowen-Kennedy collaboration the writing is engaging from the start; the dialogue (and chapter titles) are witty, the plot line fully rounded and driven by the characters. With Top Secret I quickly found myself absorbed in their lives of Keaton Hayworth and Luke Bailey. This M/M love story follows as Keaton discovers a new part of himself and embraces and cultivates who he is. And, conversely Keaton gives Luke the friendship and support he needs to deal with his toxic family.

And as with everything Sarina Bowen or Elle Kennedy touch, together or apart, I highly recommend this! OHHH – and can I just say how incredibly HOT this story was!! Love is love and passion is passion – and Keaton and Luke are scorching!! 4.5 stars!
