His Roommate's Pleasure

His Roommate's Pleasure - Lana McGregor I received this book as an ARC through NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. I went into this book with pretty low expectations. I thought it might be a fun little smut story. Nothing bad, but nothing terribly engaging. Something fluffy, and light for me to read stretched out in the lawn chair. I was pleasantly surprised to find that, for a short, pretty smutty story, it had some real depth, and interest. I really liked the characters. I found them to be well developed, and engaging. The main character in particular had a clear voice, and I found I was able to understand him in a very short period of time. I really liked his roommate very much, and loved that he wasn’t just the stereotypical jock. What really made this story work for me was the sex. I liked how both characters were able to explore their sexual desires together in a respectful manner. They were starting on a fairly even footing, and it wasn’t about one roommate initiating the other, but about them both coming to discover what they both enjoyed together. I liked the research they both did, both together, and on their own, and I liked how this research was integrated subtly into the story. Both characters were very careful to keep the lines of communication open, and that they made sure to talk about everything they did before hand, and made sure to keep checking in with each other as things progressed to make sure they both were comfortable with what was going on. It was kinky, and I found myself able to enjoy it without feeling guilty because the consent was so clear, and I never once got the feeling one partner was pressuring the other into something he didn’t want. Overall a really well done, and sexy story. I look forward to reading more by this author.
