Title: Mark Cooper versus America
Mark Cooper is angry, homesick, and about to take his stepdad’s dubious advice and rush Prescott College’s biggest party fraternity, Alpha Delta Phi. Greek life is as foreign to Aussie transplant Mark as Pennsylvania’s snowstorms and bear sightings. So, when the fraternity extends Mark a bid, Mark vows to get himself kicked out by the end of pledge period. But then he’s drawn into Alpha Delt’s feud with a neighboring fraternity.
Studious Deacon Holt is disappointed to learn Mark’s pledging Alpha Delt, his fraternity Phi Sigma Kappa’s sworn enemy. Mark is too beautiful for Deacon to pass up an invitation for sex, but beyond sex, Deacon’s not sure. He wants a relationship, but a difficult family situation prevents him from pursuing anything beyond his studies.
Mark and Deacon’s affair heats up as the war between their fraternities escalates. They explore kinks they didn’t know they had while keeping their liaison a secret from their brothers. But what Romeo and Juliet didn’t teach these star-crossed lovers is how to move beyond sex and into a place where they share more than a bed. That’s something they’ll have to figure out on their own—if the friction between their houses, and between Mark and America, doesn’t tear them apart.

Oh Mark Cooper you sexy little angry kinky bunny. You are a delightful read. You bring humor and angst and fun and kinkery to the pages. You are carefree and hide all the other stuff you think no one sees so well. You also bring fun and debauchery into Deacon’s life which he didn’t even know was missing or that he needed it. Mark Cooper you’re simply an all around awesome guy.
Mark to Deacon: “Well, I can’t be trusted to do the right thing. You know that.”
Mark is also a hot mess. I have no problem admitting one of my favorite types of male male romance reads are the college boys. They are fun reads. Mark and his reckless ways makes this a fun read. He’s angry and homesick and sick of not having easy access to all the amazing Aussie things he misses. He’s trying to not try to fit in and conform. He has to go against the grain it is simply what he does. So on hi eighteenth birthday he does the only thing that makes since to him, walks into a bar and order a beer.
Mark to Deacon: “I don’t count. I’m obviously not in my right mind.”
The beer order is quickly turned down by Deacon the bartender. Deacon does however offer him the one thing he believes Mark needs most of all, a friend. Mark being who he is quickly takes that friendship and turns it into a very beneficial arrangement for both of them. The more time they spend together the more of Mark Deacon discovers and they soon find themselves in a very enjoyable situation that has them exploring romance they didn’t know they wanted and kinks they never knew they had.
Lisa Henry and J.A. Rock have treated readers to an extraordinarily fun read. Mark Cooper versus America is full of sarcasm and wit and lighthearted good fun, with a playful side of kinkery.
