Synopsis

Love and History

The sporty roommate, the professor, and a history lesson….

Holden

Ezra might be the most annoying roommate ever. He’s loud, obnoxious, and full of himself. So what if he’s a tall, muscular, tattooed jock? His tendency to strip to his boxers in the kitchen while helping himself to my food isn’t endearing in the slightest. Nope. Ezra has to go.

However, I have to admit, he’s the perfect fit to play the king for my historic reenactment event. Ezra in a royal robe…oh, this could be quite tantalizing indeed.

He won’t do it, though.

Unless I trick him into a history lesson.

Ezra

Holden is the kind of dude who wears top hats and great coats while teaching astrophysics to brainiacs. Weird, right? But I gotta respect that level of commitment. And I respect him.

Sadly, Holden doesn’t feel the same way about me.

I guess I can’t blame him. Cranking his gears has been a highlight of my stint in geek land. I’ve never seen anyone get riled about yogurt like him. He makes me laugh. And think. And he makes me want things I’d never thought possible.

So yeah, I’ll take that history lesson. If it leads to something more, I’m in.

Love and History is a Bi-awakening geek/jock romance featuring a messy law student, a picky professor, and a lesson neither will forget!

Dana’s review: 

It appears like this is the last book of the Script Club series so it was sort of bittersweet listening to this book. Each book in the series is so different from the last and I enjoyed getting to know each member of the Script Club and their love interests.

Holden and Ezra seem like the Odd Couple at first. Holden is a bit finnicky. When he isn’t teaching astrophysics or participating in historical reenactments, he prefers things clean and orderly and hates when his roommate eats his food. Ezra is a law student and an intern and isn’t a slouch in the brains department. But he lounges around in his underwear and often doesn’t buy his share of the groceries.

Holden’s snobbery and Ezra’s obnoxious behaviors really seem to be hiding the attraction they have for their opposite counterparts. It is a funny and cute romance that eventually builds but the lease on their house is ending and their career plans seem to be taking them to different places.

Overall, it’s an enjoyable series and I enjoyed listening to it. Alexander Cendese did a great job narrating.

Dana’s rating:

Erryn’s review:

I’ve enjoyed this series tremendously and was happy to grab this title.  I love the contrasts between the two men – Holden the strait-laced by-the-book brainiac and Ezra the easy-going guy – except when it comes to his future as a lawyer.  In that, he’s all seriousness.  Ezra also had a great emotional wound – which provided an explanation for some of his behavior.

But the premise was cute – they’re roommates who are secretly attracted. Ezra shelves that because he’s happy with his housing situation and doesn’t want to rock the boat.  Holden pushes those feelings aside because Ezra’s straight and, for the moment, Holden needs his help.

See, Holden needs a King Henry the VIII for the fair.  He’s playing Shakespeare, but the needs a king.  Ezra, in his glory, is the perfect Henry.  Well, before Henry went all corpulent with gluttony, anyway.  Ezra agrees and this means the two have to spend a lot of time in each other’s company.  One thing leads to another and…well, yeah.  Now the dark moment felt vaguely contrived, but that was a minor blip.  Overall, I enjoyed the story.

Alexander Cendese is a competent narrator and he’s handled this series really well.  I’ve thoroughly enjoyed my time with these nerds and jocks.

Erryn’s rating:

8.5/10 Pots of Gold (85% Recommended) – Compares to 4.25/5 Stars
