A straight guy gives gay hookup tips to a virgin. What could go wrong?
When I first met Whit, I couldn’t get away from him fast enough. He’s a hockey player, and I hate everything to do with the sport that broke my heart.
But I can’t help feeling sorry for the guy. He’s newly out and desperate to meet someone, but his eagerness seems to scare potential hook-ups away.
Agreeing to be his wingman should’ve been simple. Watching him flirt with other guys made things complicated.
Whit challenges me in every aspect of my life, from my hatred of hockey to the new questions I’m asking myself. Like why a straight man suddenly can’t stop thinking about kissing another guy.
I think the answer lies somewhere on Whit’s lips…

The gay virgin and his straight wingman, what could go wrong, right? LOL, well, it didn’t exactly go wrong, since Rainn didn’t know what hit him when he realized his feelings for Whit when beyond friendship, but it was all done in a very realistic manner, IMO.
Whit was just so earnest and sweet, but was very mature and knew what he wanted. And Rainn, well, he was gruff, understandably so after losing his chance to play hockey and having to settle for being a bartender at V&V, but he was also nice to Whit. They had amazing chemistry and their bantering back and forth was fun to read. They were super hot together as they both explored their relationship and I just loved the progression, it was a bit of a slow burn seeing as Rainn needed to come to terms with being attracted to a man for the first time and Whit didn’t imagine his crush on Rainn will ever amount to much.
This was such a sweet, fun, hot book and a great addition to the series. I love GFY/Bi-Awakening, and Eden Finley did a great job of showing Rainn’s realization that he wasn’t as straight as he previously imagined. The only reason this isn’t a 5-Star read for me was that I didn’t particularly care for how stubborn Rainn was at pushing Whit towards something Whit didn’t want in the first place, although all things considered that might be one of the reasons for the title of the book, LOL. Very recommendable!
