When his friends bet cynical Jerry that he can’t turn sweet Arlo into a player, Jerry might win the bet but lose his heart.

College senior Jerry Helstrom survived a gay childhood in Texas by being fierce and fabulous. At school he’s known as a player and has kept his heart so guarded that he’s forgotten he has one. When his friends bet him he can’t teach inexperienced Arlo Barnes to become a stud like him, Jerry takes on the challenge and quickly finds himself drawn to his enticing trainee.

Arlo kicks butt as a Tae Kwon Do black belt, but his sexual game is lacking. He’s been dumped by his only boyfriend and needs help getting himself out there. Enter Jerry Helstrom, player extraordinaire and happy to provide Arlo with some hands-on coaching. Jerry encourages Arlo to ask for what he wants in sex and in life, something Arlo struggles with. The struggle deepens when Arlo discovers that what he truly wants is the seemingly unattainable Jerry Helstrom.

Jerry can teach Arlo to play the field, but can Arlo teach Jerry to play for keeps?
 




My Rating - 3.5 Stars!


The Player's Protege is the second book in CJane Elliott's Campus Connections series. Ends up this is a sweet story of two men who slowly fall in love during their sexual relationship. 

Jerry agrees to mentor Arlo on his sexual side. I really enjoy the little things that bring out the emotions throughout their time together. There's gentleness and understanding through their sexual interactions. And then there are some sweet and tender conversations that really bring the men together. It's great seeing Arlo grow into someone who asks for what he wants.

In the end, these characters experience a while lot of character growth, making for a nice read. 

The Player's Protege is an enjoyable new adult, college romance. This CJane Elliott read is perfect when you're looking for an emotional slow-burn that occurs during a sexual relationship.
