Title: Sweet Young Thang
Thanks to Collin Montes, Theta Alpha Gamma now welcomes gay and bisexual students. Persuading his Uncle Monty, president of the TAG Alumni Association, that the open approach won’t adversely affect TAG’s reputation is Collin’s own first step toward coming out. As long as there are no repercussions, he’ll escape the closet by graduation.
Enter repercussions, stage left: someone rigs the TAG House water heater to launch through the ceiling, then plants a bomb—thankfully unsuccessful—in the fraternity’s basement. Now Collin has his hands full not only trying to convince his uncle that this might not be the work of homophobes, but also dealing with a fratful of brothers worried about their kegger fridge.
Paramedic Eric Dixon can’t stop thinking about the kid he met during a call at his former college fraternity house. The age gap between them is trumped by sexy eyes, so when Eric sees Collin again at the bomb scene, he pursues him. Soon, Eric is dreaming of being a househusband, fighting to keep Collin safe from whoever’s trying to destroy the fraternity, and helping his sweet young thang realize that repercussions sometimes have silver linings.

You ever read that book that is so awesome you can’t put into words why it is so amazing but you feel that telling people buy it, read it, love it, that’s enough for a review. That is what I am feeling about Sweet Young Thang. I just LOVED this book. I read it during a week when I didn’t even have time to sleep much less read. I found myself sneaking odd moments to steal away with the book. I could not put it down. This is another one of Anne Tenino’s Theta Alpha Gamma books. Readers are treated to characters from the past books, but anyone can jump into this series with Eric and Colin’s book and not have any issues.
Things are getting a little crazy at the TAG house. This craziness includes all types of emergency personnel when the house goes up in flames. Colin is trying to assist an injured brother, keep his cool, help his brothers keep their heads, and attempting to convince his uncle that this has nothing to do with a recent change in policy.
Eric is shocked when his station gets the call that takes him to his old frat, in flames. Knowing he is there to work he immediately begins to look for the injured and comes face to face with Colin. Being the good paramedic he does his job and helps. The next morning when he sees Colin again he decides that he needs to meet him. Things progress rapidly between Eric and Colin from there and it is some kind of hot! I loved how Eric handled all the new feelings Colin is experiencing.
I loved the emotions that are tied into this story. Colin is young compared to Eric. Colin knows he is gay and he is trying to come out of the closet. To this point in his life he has flings and nights of hot sex. Colin has never been in a relationship. Eric is very domesticated. He has a career, owns a home, he even has chickens in the back yard. Their relationship moves fast, but all the emotions that are tied in make it genuine. Colin struggles with some of the new things going on between him and Eric.
So much of this series revolves around the guys of the Theta Alpha Gamma fraternity. So I have to talk about them a bit. I laughed so much at the keggerator meeting that I had to read the chapter twice. The Hub wanted to know what was so funny. I laughed tears down my face at the impromptu meeting involving a new member and a rather shocking email that was sent to all the members of the house. The humorous mixed with all the tumult new emotions Colin is going through was a nice mix to this amazing book.
I have to point out that this cover not only matches the book perfectly it also makes a lot of sense.
Now I’m off to see how I can work Bearadise into as many conversations as possible, after all I’m still having fun with Juicy Apple Ass.
