I loved this book. Just loved it. I read it in one sitting, finally going to sleep at 3am on Friday night, damn you. . . Once Sebastian and Brad get together, the sex is smoking hot, the relationship is interesting, and the humor is just nonstop . . .

It takes a very talented writer to perfectly balance humor, sexiness, and sweetness all in one story but Anne Tenino does so nicely in her latest release Frat Boy and Toppy. As a reader who doesn't normally enjoy rom-com stories, Ms. Tenino totally won me over and I found myself complete drawn into the lives of these collegians and their teachers.

Brad has always tried to live up to the image of a playboy athlete since he doesn't want to disappointment those around him, but as he gets older he can't keep fighting his true desires any longer. Enter sexy and self-confident TA Sebastian who Brad can't keep his eyes off of and who becomes the catalyst for a major revelation and a new chapter in his life. Brad's extremely sweet with a nice bit of snarky thrown in to bring some wonderful humor to the story. He's struggled and been miserable for so long keeping up his facade and you could see how it weighed on him. He hated himself for using women and alcohol to ignore his real inclinations. As he started accepting the truth of himself and slowly let others know you could sense that weight lifting off him. He became even more light-hearted and more self-confident. Brad seemed so much younger at the start of his relationship with Sebastian but things felt more equal between them later on after he came out. He became a man at that point, not so obsessed over other's opinions.

Sebastian was a complicated character that had been hurt by love before and shied away from it now. He was sexy and caring and was the perfect person to be Brad's first since he understood the seriousness of what their being together would mean for Brad's life. But whereas I could see the evolution of Brad emotionally, I can't quite say the same for Sebastian.

Brad is trying to be the best... the best son, the best football player, but... it's not enough. He is trying too hard, and achieving just partial success. Why? He can't find himself, in the mess of his life. College is not easy to anyone, much less to a popular football player that is in the closet.

Sebastian is a geek TA in Brad's history class. Everyone know he is gay... Brad know it too... and it desperate in love with him.
Brad want to fall in love, and be in love. Sebastian don't... can they be a perfect couple in such different worlds? A professor assistance can (better say, want) deal with a in closet popular player?
Can Brad and Sebastian be a couple? Read to know... yeah I'm a teaser :D

***************IMO why this book deserve 5 stars******************

1) the humor. No, it's not a book that will make you smile... it will crack you up loud. Oh no kidding... I laugh so many times my husband was really worried I was taking more than just painkiller drugs :D It's funny guys and girls, and I'm not kidding! Brad and Sebastian will be the narrator and I must admit the funniest was Brad. He is young, confused and his voice is perfect! A young, confused and in love brat, that crack me up. And BTW by brat I don't want to say he is immature, he is just... so innocent and willing to learn! He want to be gay, he want a boyfriend, but he have no idea how to be/get it... so, yes it's hilarious follow Brad in his thoughts and behave.

2) the erotic content. Ok, let get straight to the point, there is a lot of gay sex in this book. Oh yes, and no, I'm not spoiling saying if Brad will have with Sebastian or not... because Sebastian is not the only gay in the campus... oh yes, always teaser :D BUT don't think Brad is a slut or anything like that...

On the Goodreads book page of this novel under the cover picture there's a button that says "read ebook." It gives you the option of reading the first six chapters of Frat Boy and Toppy for free.

I call that false advertising.

I didn't even read the synopsis, I just jumped in, read the free preview, and laughed until my jaws ached. Naturally I had to get my hands on the rest of the story and when I did-I was sorely disappointed.

Yes, I fell in love with the easy going Brad and emotionally repressed Sebastian and I laughed at their mental commentary. This was one of the few times humour did translate well. Even the unbelievably positive reactions to Brad's coming out to his family and friends, didn't bother the cynic in me who looks to realism. I was charmed by this modern fairytale telling it's okay to be who you are, it's okay to be gay and no one should tell you otherwise. I didn't even miss a more intricate plot, because simple character based stories are lovely too.

What did bother me and what dropped this from a solid four star rating to three was the fact that the plot introduced in the free snippet dissipated into gratuitous erotica. The middle third of this book is nothing but sex. And when I say sex, I mean imaginative sex. Brad mindlessly wanders from one encounter to another and very little happens in between. The remaining plot threads, which could be called mere character development, are brought back for the last fifth of the book. That's when the humour returned and I started enjoying the book again.
