Quinn has the worst luck. His flight home for Thanksgiving is cancelled due to the weather, and now an unexpected invite has him spending the holiday with his frat brother Sawyer and his sexy twin brother Mitch. Between a car breakdown, a family member who is a militant shopper and preparing the holiday meal, somehow Mitch and Quinn find themselves having a romantic fling. The only problem is: hearts begin to get involved. And once they get back to campus, can the two somehow become more?

Review: Okay so we have a ton of handsome well-adjusted gay men in this story. Hip, Hip, Hooray! However, three brothers – all gay- a little unlikely.  Not impossible or even improbable, just unlikely!  It made this reviewer curious to read the story about the parents and how they dealt with three gay sons, but I digress.  However, the story is really about Quinn and Mitch, who are both in college, their meeting, discovering they like each other and pursuing what one does in college – dating and having fun.

The way the two fall quickly into bed with each other is very reminiscent of how boys behave in college and it is clear that Mitch is well on his way to being a pretty aggressive, but lovable top. The story is very realistic and the interaction between all the men seems honest and believable. Two young hormone ridden men hit it off and then proceed to have lots of sex and follow it up with more sex when they get back to campus.  There is no allusion here to happily ever afters, because this is clearly a college relationship – but what is pleasant to see is that these young men are happy, living their lives with supportive parents and friends in a healthy atmosphere.

So if you are looking for a short feel good romp about good-looking young men who are having lots of sex – then this is definitely for you.
