Book #1 – Helping Hand
Book #2 – Like A Lover 

Ryan isn’t looking for a relationship with a guy–and Johnny isn’t looking for a relationship at all.

Ryan’s always been attracted to tall, leggy blondes–normally of the female variety. When Johnny catches his eye at a party, Ryan’s interest is piqued even though he’s never been with a guy before. The attraction is mutual, and the amazing night that follows opens Ryan’s eyes to his bisexuality.

Experience has taught Johnny that love hurts. Staying single is safer, and there’s no need for complicated relationships when hooking up is easy. When he moves in next door to Ryan, they’re both interested in picking up where they left off, and it seems like an ideal arrangement: convenient, mutually satisfying, and with no strings attached.

Despite their best intentions to keep things casual, they develop an emotional connection alongside the physical one. Both begin to want more from the relationship but are afraid to admit it. If they’re going to work things out, they need to start being honest–first with themselves, and then with each other.

Although this book is part of the Housemates series, it has new main characters, a satisfying happy ending, and can be read as a standalone.

Jenn Review

3.5 – 4 Stars

I have really enjoyed this series and this group of guys and I can add Ryan and Johnny to the list of guys I’ve fallen for in this group! They definitely don’t seem like a likely pair but I liked these guys and I liked them together.

Ryan has always identified as straight, although he admits being attracted to guys sometimes. Then he meet Johnny, with his long blond hair and androgynous look and he can’t resist. Johnny is all game for hooking up, but no commitments and when he meets Ryan and it leads to an awesome hook-up he thinks he’s got a perfect no-strings go-to. The two pursue a physical relationship together and it seems like what both men want, sex with no expectations.

I really liked these two together, they obviously had great chemistry but I feel like I would have liked more of their story outside the bedroom. There is a lot of sex with these two and it’s hot but I felt like I wanted a bit more from them, I wanted to get to know them a little better. I absolutely loved the way this story came together though, it was great! These two both finally learn about who they really are and who they are supposed to be, together. Overall, I did enjoy Ryan and Johnny and totally fell for them and their story.
