Accidental Love by Shae Connor

A sweet and sexy story about young love: Greg and Keith are college roommates; they don’t know each other very well, they don’t even know to being both gay. What Greg knows is that Keith behaves like a good boy during the week, to then enjoy his weekends in a midst of sex and alcohol. Greg is not a saint, but he is in self-imposed rehabilitation: after a late teens and beginning of college in which Greg drunk too much and rebelled to his family, he took the decision to change city and degree, and behave. Keith is a living temptation he cannot afford.

I like how the author maintained the mood of the story light and sweet; both Greg and Keith had some trouble in their teen years, but nothing tragic and nothing that could really prevent them to be happy now. Plus both of them are ordinary guys, good looking but no fake-model type; they are young, they made some mistakes in their past, and they are now building the basis for a good future. Exactly like many other thousands of guys of the same age.

Another point I liked is that these guys are romantic at heart, they want love and roses, boyfriend and kisses; sure the sex is good, but that is not what they will bring back, and along, into their life. I can imagine these two in 40 years still being together, and happy.
