Orphan Jackson Murphy just staked his legacy on a bet.
Holy shit, his impulsive ass is in trouble.
Bring a guy to the fraternity formal? Pfft. Easy. Won’t be him getting kicked out of the house.
So what if his luck with guys on campus has been shitty? Ed Knowles is Jack’s winning ticket.
Tall, handsome, hardworking—and he doesn’t go to Harrison. One serendipitous meeting, and sparks—and coffee cups—are flying.
But with every stolen look, every secret kiss, every clandestine touch Ed becomes more than just an answer to a bet.
And these cloak-and-dagger meetings that set Jack on fire? They mask one tiny, enormous obstacle: Ed’s not out.
What does Jack do now?
Hold on to his legacy… or his heart?
"Better Be Sure" is a sweet, slow burn M/M romance with a heart-pounding HEA. This New Adult, college, opposite sides of the tracks novel can be read as a standalone and in any order.
The author perfectly captures the college years, reminding me often at how young and inexperienced these young men are. It all feels realistic and genuine. The frat dynamics seem to be accurate and the pressures and stress are definitely well described.
As for Jack and Ed, I just love them. Separately and together. Jack's an amazing guy who's understanding and wonderful to Ed. And Ed's a sympathetic character who grows a lot by the end. Their story's emotional and memorable.
Better Be Sure is a gripping and impressive romance. It has a lot of heart, and is worth a read. The writing is good, and includes some great secondary characters.
