Review

★★★★★ - "What a gift this woman has for telling you a story that could be so true. It comes off so real that it feels like you are at the house with them living throughout their craziness. It will catch your attention from the start and keep it all the way to the end." - MM Good Book Reviews

★★★★½ - "I loved these boys and I was rooting for them. ... Very recommended." - Hearts on Fire Reviews

This is NOT a typical nerd-jock romance. This one is a bit more angsty because the MC's just can't seem to communicate all that well with each other except when they are in bed--or having sex against the bedroom walls or on the floor. And that can lead to complications and misunderstandings and tears and fears and clearly unnecessary mutual nervous breakdowns.

Marshall Sulkowski is an all-star baseball player undergraduate who latches on to a spare room in an off-campus house filled with post-graduate students, including the somewhat nerdy but still pretty hot Greg London. A series of suggestive encounters is followed by a series of scorching encounters, and then things start falling apart in other parts of their lives for each of them. Their inability to recognize these things, and their insecurities toward their relationship, force them into a pattern of taking what each needs from the other without giving much in return.

Absolutely wonderful exposition of how these two young men evolve toward, away, and back to, each other by a new author to watch. You will raise an eyebrow here and there about how dumb each of them can be at times, but you will never feel the need to strangle either one--just to hug them and comfort them and throw them back to each other again.

Greg London is a PhD candidate working his way through graduate school. After answering an ad to rent a room, jock Marshall Sulkowski finds himself living with men he thinks are better than him.

Both Greg and Marsh are stuck with the labels of their childhood; they bring these pre-conceived notions to their relationship each feeling unworthy of the other; Greg thinking he is a boring nerd and Marsh that he is a dumb jock.

There were times in this book my heart broke for Marsh; he often thought so little of himself when it was clear he has such a big heart.

Greg and Marsh were so tied into the stereotypes of themselves, they failed to see the connection they developed with each other. This book worked for me because it felt so true… two men who just can’t seem to communicate with each other. Two men stuck in their own heads, two men who dismissed feelings for sex.

The use of secondary characters in this book truly moved the story forward as both Marsh and Greg needed someone to point out what was right in front of them. Marsh’s friend Yulia and Greg’s friend Ronnie both made this story work, both pushed their friends to see the connection developing.

Marsh’s gestures for Greg in the end spoke volumes as the old adage is so true, actions do speak louder than words.

In the end, I loved how Greg helped Marsh see how he could be more. The love and support of another means so much, and Greg proved that to Marsh in spades.

This was my first book from Ms. Grey and I am looking forward to continue to read new books as she releases them.

Marshall Sulkowski has no idea what an intelligent guy like Greg London could ever want with a barely passing his classes, dumb jock like him. Marshall looks at Greg as if he hung the moon and the stars. Marshall has low self-esteem, family issues, no money and no plan for his future.

Greg sees Marsh as the sexy, popular guy on campus. Greg is so busy trying to play it cool and hide his nerdy self that he doesn't see his intelligence is what Marsh loves most about him. Greg is taking on more than he can handle with his classes, helping his friends, end of the year school projects, all resulting in his health is fading fast.

The story's pace was one of the most realistic I've seen in a while; housemates that start hooking up early in the book but took a while to let the real feelings show. While reading I was rooting for these guys to figure things out! OMG! Talk it out. The guys spend so much time hiding a piece of themselves from each other, not waiting to look vulnerable, that they almost push love away. If not for a meddling best friend and a meddling mother, no telling if they would have ever talked!

Young men falling in love for the first time, Get What You Need is realistic and heartfelt story filled with college drama and boy angst and I love it. The guys are so busy trying not to show how much one really wants the other, honestly insecure in themselves and perfect for each other all at the same time.

Once true feelings are revealed the issue becomes what does the future hold for these once the semester is over.

Can I please give Marsh a hug? I was attracted to this book because a.) I often love the MM Samhain puts out, and b.) I love me some nerds (since I am a nerd!) I expected to read this and identify with the geeky ways of the nerdy MC, but Ms. Grey crafted an even better character in Marsh. A jock who doesn't believe in himself, and a young man more alone in the world than Greg could even realize.

I loved the way this story flipped my expectations around, and made Marsh the guy I wanted to see find his guy. Greg was a great character too, and I loved watching him finally begin to realize what has been growing between the two of them. The secondary characters were great too, and I loved the the majority of them were fellow geeks. In many jock themed books I enjoy getting to know the other jocks, though in this book we don't see any of Marsh's teammates. I think that really worked here because it helped create Marsh's sense of loneliness and isolation.

Overall, this book was a sweet, hot, sexy and fun read. I totally fell for both MCs, especially Marsh, and I couldn't wait to see them get their much deserved HEA. I will definitely be looking out for more of Ms. Grey's work!
