Everyone's got secrets. Some are just harder to hide. Bend or Break, Book 1. With his father's ponzi scheme assets frozen, Tom Worthington believes finishing college is impossible unless he can pay his own way. After months sleeping in his car and gypsy-cabbing for cash, he's ready to do just that. But his new, older-student housing comes with an unapologetically gay roommate. Tom doesn't ask why Reese Anders has been separated from the rest of the student population. He's just happy to be sleeping in a bed. Reese isn't about to share his brutal story with his gruff new roommate. You've seen one homophobic jock, you've seen 'em all. He plans to drag every twink on campus into his bed until Tom moves out. But soon it becomes clear Tom isn't budging. Tom isn't going to let some late-night sex noise scare him off, especially when it's turning him on. But he doesn't want any drama either. He'll keep his hands, if not his eyes, to himself. Boundaries have a way of blurring when you start sharing truths, though. And if Tom and Reese cross too many lines, they may need to find out just how far they can bend...before they break. Warning: This book contains cranky roommates who vacillate between lashing out and licking, some male/male voyeurism, emotional baggage that neither guy wants to unpack, and the definitive proof that sound carries in college housing.… (mere)

"You have been approved for off-campus housing at the Frances Perkins House for returning student"

Tom wasn't expecting a warm welcome returning back to college. And new roommate, Reese, definitely is not going to give him one. Two men, seemingly so different are now thrown into tight quarters. One doing whatever he can to get rid of the interloper. The other digging his heels in to stay where he can hide from his life.

This was a first time read for me as recommended by a trusted friend. WOW!! I am hooked. Ms. Cousins characters leap off the page and into your heart - just sticking there. Although there is a lot of push/pull in the relationship, Amy Jo Cousins gives you realistic situations and outcomes of behaviors as Tom finds his way in a new relationship. I loved both characters. They each had their flaws but you could be completely sympathy to their actions. I don't feel like I can gush on the story without giving away. Ms. Cousins gives us awesome side kicks in Cash and Steph (when do I get to their book?).

If you love two unlikely people actually finding love in m/m genre, I highly recommend this books!! Although the first book in the series, each one can standalone. As I write my reviews, I've read books 1-4. Book one - definite 5 star read. Series - 5 stars overall!

This book was a different read for me in a few ways. I love m/m books but most of the time the MCs are of the gun-wielding Alpha type. This is one of the few times I've read an m/m book in which one of the characters was, by all outward appearances, a bit less masculine looking than the other. No burly bears battling for supremacy in this book. This leads to the other aspect that made this a different m/m read for me: who topped whom. Roles were not clear cut. Topping and bottoming were more dependent on psychological strength, not physical. This made for a much richer story. I will definitely read more by this author. ( )

This almost dropped down to three stars for me because Tom's issues were drawn out a bit too long, and I got exasperated with him. But I loved Reese too much, and I thought the chemistry between them was beautifully done, and I enjoyed the slow, meticulous development of the relationship, it rang true to me. Extra points for making Reese issues real issues and not just a trope for the broken twink. ( )

This is my first book by Amy Jo Cousins, but I'm very sure it won't be the last. Even though there were some things in int, I didn't like so much.

Overall this novel is very sweet and flows nicely. I like how slow-building the friendship is. Such things don't happen over night, you know? I liked both Tom and Reese as well, as they are interesting characters and felt real.

But there were some things I didn't enjoy that much. For one I found the voyeur parts in this story a little bit strange. Or rather their reactions to it.

And the other thing bothering me is the sex. It was just too much and too often. I would have liked more plot way better, that's for sure.

I'm still very interested in the side character's stories, so I'll read the next installments in this series as well (and hope for less sex...). ( )

Release Day BR...December 30th...with Elsbeth, Momo, Susan, Paul, Britta, Marcie and Marte

WOW…what a buddy read…the number of posts was crazy and trying not to look ahead was quite difficult. Not to mention all the…



But alas...a review…and for that I have 2 ratings for this book. One rating for the first half and one for the second.
Let’s start with the second half. Honestly, it’s a 2.5 - 3 for me. Things came to kind of a halt that I was not expecting around 60%. And these boys while lovely, desperately need help. Their internal issues are pretty heavy and while I can totally understand Reese’s issues, I had a very difficult time understanding Tom’s. I mean…his father’s issues are not his own? Would people really hound him and treat him as the villain…accusing him of the damage that was really his father’s doing? I am not sure I get it. And while so much emphasis was placed on Reese getting therapy I kept wondering why no one was suggesting that Tom do the same. I mean this guy is soooo messed up it was almost too painful to read.

The heat also seemed to dissipate and honestly with all the negative energy and therapy needed…maybe that was the point. But… even when they have actual intercourse the first time, I was reading and thinking…Tom is hating this…but turns out he was loving it? Did I misread that entire scene? What I wanted was love making but it kept being described as dirty and painful…and really not in a good way at all. Just kinda made me more like…

Instead of this...



And really…that whole first half of the book was one big lovely…



So that brings me back to the first half. Jesus…if we could have stopped somewhere in the middle, I would have probably placed this book on the top of all shelves...with 5 big ole stars. Could it have been the buddy read I was in? The constant pantie throwing discussion? Perhaps, but it was damn hot…sweet and just all around priceless entertainment to please any reader. Whew!! The voyeurism aspect was new for me, and certainly did not disappoint.

Honestly when it was all said and done, I wish really that the book had been a little less about Tom’s issues and more about Reese’s coming to accept the love that Tom had for him…letting his guard down to allow someone into his life and trust they are there for the right reasons…more understanding of him overall, his abuse , etc.

In addition to the amazing first half, another huge plus in this book is CASH. Can I say that again…CASH CASH CASH…honestly I think this character could land at the top of the list of straight best friends. He was absolutely so well written, accepting, funny and just all around fantastic!

“Dudes! Tell me you are not doing it in the bathroom while I’m hauling your piece of shit couch up four flights of stairs. Thing’s made of balsawood…”

OMG I am totally in the CASH fan club!!

Well…so as I bring this to closure, it lands, I guess, at a 4, and really it probably is a 3.5…but given the BR fun I had, I have to round up!!

Also – I have heard Book #2 in this series is about Jack. I am not sure how I feel about this at all. Cash…hell yes I would take an M/F with him any day over reading about the asshole Jack. *shakes head* Maybe time to digest this revelation will help me decide to continue.

Aside from the downhill slide of the second half, this was damn enjoyable! This book was a fun fantastic end to 2014 for me and was my 150th book, allowing me to complete by reading challenge for the year!
**Sorry - I really intended for those 2 middle images to be in the spoiler...but I cannot get it to work. " ( )
