Jay Northcote is an author who delivers, and though I tend to prefer her longer, more involved, deeper, angst-filled tales, this series is all about short and sweet. I love that these guys of uni age are all pretty decent deep down, open to the idea of committed relationships and more than just boozing and shagging their time away. This is the third book so far in the series, all of which can be read as standalones (I read book 2 first, then book 1 and now this one), though they're best read in order, as previous leads end up as part of the supporting cast, living their HEAs.
In this, there are a couple of really sweet guys, who come across as genuine and very decent - I believed in them. I believed in the premise of the tale. I believed in how their not-really-a-relationship relationship grew and deepened, and I loved the tenderness and RL feel of this tale. I was intrigued by Dev's name and background and think JN got stuff right; I especially liked that Dev's family - an ethnic group that's known for its macho culture and 'not really embracing' attitude towards LGBT people/culture, etc. - were accepting of him (not that JN went into any unnecessary detail simply to add angst to the tale).
I liked how there was only a small bit of uncertainty and heartache, which was all resolved realistically and quickly, and yes, despite their young ages, I could see these guys in it for the long term. Hopefully, as with the previous leads in the epilogue here, we'll see more of them in future tales. And, with the mention of another house full of uni guys, I hope that means that there will be many more tales to come - a certain Ryan caught my interest and I'd like to read more about him.

I think if you liked the first book (not read the second yet!) then you will also enjoy this. Northcote's writing is always endearing and I look forward to reading more of their novels!
"You are." Ewan pressed a kiss to the small of Dev's back. "But I'll take care of you."
From the moment we have Dev going through his list (2% in), I was smiling so much. This book and these two guys together is so freaking cute. The epitome of sweet and sexy. A true feel good book. I'm seriously loving this series and really hoping there will be more to come.
'Only, with Ewan lying beside him, stroking Dev's chest, his breath warm on Dev's cheek, maybe Dev had already found what he wanted.'
I loved Dev. I loved him in all his awkwardly, geeky, no nonsense ways. His lists, his awful cooking skills and his pure, honest-to-a-fault ways. He may have tried to hide his true feelings for Ewan as they developed but he really talked honestly and I loved that, especially when it made for some hilarious and even some sexy moments! The smile was never off my face thanks to him and I love him hard.
"Jesus, you like dirty talk, then? You're pretty kinky for a virgin."
"I wasn't trying to talk dirty. I just want to know what you like."
Ewan chuckled breathlessly. "Somehow that only makes it hotter."
Ewan is a really great character too. He wasn't awkward, geeky or a virgin like Dev but I wouldn't go as far as saying he is Dev's complete opposite. He was just a really cool guy! I mean, he is pretty generous; he generously, from the bottom of his heart offered up himself to help Dev gain sexual experience,so selflessly really. Heh. But really he is great and a perfect match for Dev. And that moment when he gets all protective of Dev and stands up for him in that café.

Ewan with his flamed haired cheekiness and Dev in all his list writing, geeky, dirty talking gorgeousness!
I loved both these boys and it was lovely to catch up with all characters from the precious two books.
It's sweet, cute, 'ah' inducing, sexy, seriously hot, classic Jay Northcote that left me with the warm fuzzies, and I absolutely adored it.
Dev and Ewan are both young students at Uni, Dev moves in next door to Ewan after having a bad experience in halls of residents and is quite shy and a loner, looking to make a fresh start.
Upon meeting Ewan, Dev is quite awkward but there is attraction from both sides. Things become even more awkward when Ewan mistakenly accepts a package that was meant for Dev. Not going to spoil that surprise but that leads to interesting conversations with a compromise of helping each other out. Dev needing sexual experiences Ewan offers his service and Dev offers in return to help him with maths tutoring.
Dev with his need to organise everything makes a list for Ewan to show what he wants to try and Ewan is definitely up for assisting finding Dev's shyness and need for questions about everything and direct approach a turn on.
"Jesus, you like the dirty talk, then? You're pretty kinky for a virgin."
"I wasn't trying to talk dirty. I just want to know what you like."
Ewan chuckled breathlessly.Read more ›
