    4 Stars Science & Jockstraps is a college-themed M/M story, featuring a naturally progressing friends-to-lovers romance between roommates Liam and Isaiah. This was a fun and sexy little read. I had no trouble believing in Liam and Isaiah’s relationship, even from the get-go. They went from a sweet and caring opposites-attract friendship, to realising deeper romantic feelings for one another after Isaiah offered to help Liam explore a secret kink.

This was a fun and sexy little read. I had no trouble believing in Liam and Isaiah’s relationship, even from the get-go. They went from a sweet and caring opposites-attract friendship, to realising deeper romantic feelings for one another after Isaiah offered to help Liam explore a secret kink. Beyond the lite (but steamy AF) kink factor and the positive representation of bisexuality, I also appreciated that this story was practically angst-free. There were no bigoted family members or mean-spirited friends to contend with here, no siree — all the background players were perfectly likeable, providing the friendship, love and support Liam and Isaiah so naturally deserved. I enjoyed this one a lot, to the point that I’d consider it one of the best, sexiest new adult M/M stories I’ve read all year. 😉 Note: This story is just the first of a series of multi-author standalones, each featuring characters who invariably end up visiting a sex shop called Ace’s Wild. These books can be enjoyed in any order.

    I really enjoyed this story, even though I usually prefer older MCs. Fortunately, Isaiah and Liam acted like new adults, not teenagers, and it helped that there was no family drama. The angst in general is minimal, with Isaiah worried about coming out as bi but finally doing right by Liam. I liked the dual POV and loved both Liam, all flustered and adorable, and Isaiah, kind of a tough guy jock but smart and caring. Major kudos to the authors for featuring a bisexual MC of color.

We need more of that. I've always been a fan of the friends-to-lovers trope, and even though the story begins when Liam and Isaiah have already been roommates (and friends) for a while, their friendship felt believable. I mean, they watched documentaries together! GAH, I can't with the cuteness. The guys connected on an intellectual and emotional level, and when Isaiah discovered that Liam yearned to be spanked ... oh boy, it was all systems GO. Synopsis: a little bit kinky, HOT, and sweet; spanking included!

    Liam and Isaiah, aka Science and Jockstrap, are roommates in college. They spend a lot of time together watching science videos and sharing food. But Liam has a secret and when Isaiah discovers it, he realizes it's a secret wish of his too. This was so sweet and just what I needed at the moment. These two were great together. There was really no angst even though the potential was there. I do wish it was a longer story because jocks and nerds are one of my favorite couple combos.

    Wonderful M/M romance, the scientist and the jock ! Adorable Liam, Science major, has a big basketball player for a college roommate. Straight, African American, Isaiah, likes his little roomie. When Isaiah finds out Liam wants someone to spank him, Isaiah wants to be that guy. These two are so genuine, honest and truly caring, snappy and full of teasing banter, and after the clothed spanking, they slowly begin to give in to desire. Jockstrap/Isaiah admits he’s bi, but never acted on it. It’s Wonderful M/M romance, the scientist and the jock ! Adorable Liam, Science major, has a big basketball player for a college roommate.

    Loved this short fluffy book! NA is either a hit or a miss for me but I loved that Isaiah was a POC and Liam was so adorable. I Finished this in one sitting and since I love the premise of this whole series(where all the stories are different with Ace & Wilder’s sex shop being the only connection among all the books), I’ll definitely be reading all the other stories to see what they’ve got in store.

    4.5* So sweetly hot! This was a great little love story between a jock and a nerd. I do love a good opposites attract romance and Isaiah and Liam couldn't have been more opposite if they tried! I liked that they started out as friends, and when the opportunity to move things in a different direction was dropped into his lap, Isaiah took full advantage! I loved the care he took with Liam, and when things got real, how he owned up to his mistake immediately. Liam was a doll and I loved how he 4.5* So sweetly hot!

    Liked this one, and that's unusual in itself as I don't normally get on with these two. 4 stars. Part of the Ace's Wild series for charity [at least for the first 90 days, then money goes to the Authors]. I will read some of them...in fact, I've already read 2, but others are written by authors I'm not that keen on so sorry, won't be buying those.

    Good 3.75 A good YA novel about two room mates. One is a jock and one the brainiac. I liked Liam and Isaiah together, they had a bit of a bump to get there with Isaiah having to come out as bi, I felt for both of them here. I liked that they connected over things like the documentaries that Liam liked. Isaiah’s fear of coming out to the team and his mum were understandable. I loved how they reacted. It was an enjoyable Sunday read. Good 3.75 ⭐️ A good YA novel about two room mates. One is a jock and one the brainiac.

    Very enjoyable. Kink discovery with two guys who have good chemistry and act appropriately. Very cute romance with a side of spanking.

    This story was perfectly fine. There was only one instance where the authors used the wrong character name and the story flowed well enough, but it didn't add a single new thing to the closeted jock/nerd or roommates with benefits tropes. I was hoping for something at least a LITTLE original, but was sadly disappointed.

    *2.5 stars* I may have to accept that I've outgrown these kind of books, author's. They were my first MM I ever read but they just don't rock my world any longer. It's not that it is bad but it doesn't satisfy me, there's no character bonding. so yeah...

    I haven't read a single book by this uber-talented writing duo that I did not LOVE, and this is no exception. It's the tale of two college roommates, a shy science geek and his fun-loving jock best friend, who begin blurring the boundaries of their friendship when one of them expresses a secret kink, and the other offers to help him explore it. Super steamy, emotional, even angsty, I devoured this novella-length romance in a single sitting, and loved the heck out of it.

Liam and Isaiah have been roommates and somewhat "secret friends" for the past year. They enjoy spending time together even if on the outside they couldn't be more different - The science-y Liam and Isaiah the jock. But they somehow do fit. Only problem is, outside of their dorm they don't mesh. It feels wrong, to both of them. The gap is simply too much. When Isaiah find out (by mistake) a kinky side to Liam he realizes he can't let him experiment if he's not going to have someone SAFE to do it with and so he offers himself. Liam is stunned but as Isaiah confessed to being bi and REALLY being into it (and Liam) - Liam accepts (a dream come true if he cam be honest..). Yet things do exactly go as planned when this little "experiment" turns to so much more. How can they have a relationship if Isaiah is so deeply closeted, not to mention afraid his athletic career would be harmed by coming out? Liam has been out all of his life, being closeted is not something he wants to do. So what now? You already know they worked it out in the end, as this IS a romance novella. Liam and Isaiah simply WORK together as Isaiah was not only a closeted bi but a closeted geek as well. They were simply ADORABLE together. Loved how they expressed their emotions towards one another when they were alone. Though they took their time with actual words, their actions spoke VOLUMES. Endearing read really. Get ready for some fun (light) kink. More Reviews HERE

Liam was my favourite character in this story, he is so quiet and shy compared to the more outgoing Isaiah, and I always adore the more nerdy type characters. It was sweet how they were such good friends inside the confines of their shared room, they were really comfortable with each other before their relationship started to change. Lots of really hot moments between these 2, and it takes Isaiah some time to come to the realisation of what and who is really important to him in his life.

If you like sweet with a little bit of kink (spanking) or even if you're not necessarily into the kink part (it's not my go to troupe) I think you'll enjoy this read.
