Love, Hypothetically (Theta Alpha Gamma) by Anne Tenino
Paul's been called many things—graduate student, humanities tutor, jock-hater, even broke—but "forgiving" isn't one of them. When the new women's softball coach at Calapooya college specifically requests Paul to tutor his athletes, Paul's forced to put aside his strict "no athletes" policy for the sake of his paycheck.
Enter Trevor Gardiner, former Major League Baseball player and Paul’s high school boyfriend. Yeah, that one—the guy who sacrificed Paul for the safety of his closet and his future career. But Trevor’s come out and retired from baseball, and now he’s looking for forgiveness and a second chance.
There’s no earthly reason Paul should give him one, but he keeps letting the man state his case. And touch him. And take him sailing. The waters are far from smooth, though, and Paul says awful things to Trevor he isn’t sure he means. Now Paul has to decide: apologize and forgive Trevor for everything, or chalk it up as revenge and move on
I love reading fun books, you know what I'm talking about the ones that leave you laughing 90% of the story. Although this one does have a serious side to it. It's mostly a sweet, funny sexy read that I couldn't put down. Paul wasn't a nice character in Frat Boy & Toppy so I didn't like him much but in this one we understand why he behaves the way he does and I found I really did love his character. I did like the fact that Paul doesn't just change quickly or easily it makes for great drama too. But I found it great that not only does he turn to Toby but even Brad & Sebastian as well plus I get to see one of my favorite couples interact again. I mean Paul has to learn the hardest lesson of all forgive & forget, which is a lot harder to do than some think. I would have liked to understand more to Trevor's character but I loved the chemistry between Trevor & Paul and loved the all the sailing references. I hope we get Toby's story soon I'm really loving this series. I Highly Recommend.
