Read an Excerpt

"Damn." Adam glared at his battered, mostly broken laptop.

Twenty-two minutes before the submission deadline for his Moral Philosophy paper, and his laptop was refusing to connect to the Internet. It wasn't like he didn't know he needed a new one; he'd known since the moment his older brother had handed him this one, fresh from Tom's four years of business major papers and presentations. Adam needed to write as many papers as Tom had, but Tom's choice of major came with parental blessing, whereas Adam had to suffer through his parents' scathing opinion of his choice of philosophy. A new laptop wouldn't be showing up under the tree at Christmas this year, that was for sure.

Nineteen minutes. Fuck. He poked fruitlessly at the mouse button, trying to make the cursor stay in one place. Tom had spilled something on it at his graduation party, and ever since, the cursor jumped all over the place.

He desperately needed a good grade in this class to make up for his Science of Philosophy class last semester. The professor had stood at the front and droned into his notes for every single class, and Adam had fallen asleep just like everyone else. He'd barely passed, and his GPA had suffered as an obvious result.

There was nothing else to be done; he'd have to hope his roommate wasn't planning on coming back to their dorm room in the next seventeen minutes, because Adam's only option at this point involved sneaking on to Josh's computer and sending his paper from there.

It wasn't like he and Josh didn't get along. They did, kind of, if getting along meant not fighting all the time. They didn't fight over the bathroom, and Josh didn't bring anyone back to the room for sex. Josh was just everything Adam wasn't: he'd had a letter jacket in high school, he rowed, he ran, he played baseball, and he went swimming every week.

Adam had hated gym class in high school. He hated team sports, and he hated swimming. When he'd first started high school—before his growth spurt—he'd been forced to take swim class, and all the guys had laughed at him in his regulation swim trunks. That alone would have been enough to make him want to avoid jocks and sports, but three weeks into freshman year, the seniors on the volleyball team had stuffed him and Thomas Michaels into adjoining lockers in the freshman hallway.

He had known from the first time he'd seen all of Josh's sports gear that he and Josh would have nothing in common. It could have been a whole lot worse, but even knowing that, he didn't know whether using Josh's computer was going to cause a fight or not. They didn't talk much.

He booted up Josh's computer, relieved by the fact he hadn't password protected it. Not being aware of basic computer security was kind of a dumbass move, but Adam was grateful for it now. The computer was in sleep mode, so it only took a moment for the screen to come back to life. He clicked on the open browser window on the taskbar and jammed his memory stick in the front of the machine.

Fourteen minutes. Come on, come on. If he submitted his paper late, that was an automatic deduction.

This was a pretty good read.  It has a lot of elements such as BDSM, coming out, and some discovery/exploration.  There was a nice build up of the relationship and all.  I really enjoyed everything they did together, which was steamy even if it was a little awkward at times.  The plot was pretty predictable, but still very compelling.  There is always an opportunity to play the homophobic element, but thankfully there isn’t much of that so the couple can progress in a considerably more relaxed manner.  Overall, a sweet story that left me smiling.

Adam has a paper due in 20 minutes and his hand-me-down computer is all hosed up! He’s desperate, but he doesn’t really feel comfortable borrowing his roommate Josh’s laptop. They’re not really that close. Heck, they hardly know each other even after living together for a whole semester. Josh is a jock; he plays baseball, swims, rows, etc. And he’s straight (or so it appears). He is everything that Adam isn’t. Running out of options, Adam quickly decides to use Josh’s laptop. After submitting his paper with 7 minutes to spare, he somehow stumbles upon a folder full of porn. Gay porn. Blindfolds, collars, handcuffs, paddles, floggers... Adam is immediately turned on and wonders if he and Josh have more in common than he thought? Inexperienced virgin college boys experimenting with D/s? Yes, please!! Add in some mm sweetness as they actually begin to care for each other and you’ve got me hooked! This book was super hot hot hot and I loved it! I will definitely read more from Lana McGregor!!

I found His Roommate's Pleasure to a sweet combination of erotica mixed within a New Adult setting. The short novella is the perfect length and I found the pacing well done. At no time did I feel it was rushed nor did I experience any sections of filler boredom. I was riveted from beginning to end. The two main characters, Adam and Josh are completely likable and I found their dialog to be exactly what I would expect of guys their age. The detail of the sex scenes is well written and detailed without coming off all smutty. Their beginning exploration of BDSM has just enough kink and sex to please anyone's palette that enjoys M/M erotica.  What I found endearing the most about Adam and Josh is their sweet innocence. Despite Josh have the collection of porn, in all reality he is just as inexperienced as Adam. As they tried out different aspects of sex and BDSM, you a sense this is what it could really be like for to beginners. None of this instant knowledge of what to do and going all out. Their constant talking it out as they experimented and the trust they build with each other, really sets this story above the rest.  Author Lana McGregor has really done it with her debut book. His Roommate's Pleasure is a absolute must read. She is definitely one to watch and I really look forward to her next book. I received this book from JeepDiva in exchange for my honest review. The opinions and rating of this review are solely mine and in no way was I compensated. Stars - 5, Flames - 4
