Geek and Jock Romance

Blame it on the Mistletoe by Eli Easton


This is the Perfect Geek and Jock, GFY, Friends to Lovers and First time love story. Yes it has All that. First the Blurb.


When physics grad student Fielding Monroe and skirt-chaser and football player Mick Colman become college housemates, they’re both in for a whole new education. Mick looks out for the absent-minded genius, and he helps Fielding clean up his appearance and discover all the silly pleasures his strict upbringing as a child prodigy denied him. They become best friends.

It’s all well and good until they run into a cheerleader who calls Mick the ‘best kisser on campus.’ Fielding has never been kissed, and he decides Mick and only Mick can teach him how it’s done. After all, the physics department’s Christmas party is coming up with its dreaded mistletoe. Fielding wants to impress his peers and look cool for once in his life. The thing about Fielding is, once he locks onto an idea, it’s almost impossible to get him to change his mind. And he just doesn’t understand why his straight best friend would have a problem providing a little demonstration.

Mick knows kissing is a dangerous game. If he gives in, it would take a miracle for the thing not to turn into a disaster. Then again, if the kissing lessons get out of hand they can always blame it on the mistletoe.

So we have Fielding Monroe the perfect geek if there ever was one.  He is lanky with glasses with an overbearing mother and is incredibly smart.  He is one of the top students in the science department majoring in Particle physics.  When he got to college his mother wanted him to have a place to himself.  He wanted a place away from her.  In comes Mick.

Mick is the quintessential jock, he was into football, very into his body and, he is double majoring in Nutrition and Physical Therapy.  He works in the gym. He is also Hot.

I inherited dirty blonde hair and blue eyes from my mom and  a rough, somewhat lumpy face from dad. I’d been told I looked like Daniel Craig.

When he meets Fielding he is a little put off by his mother and he isn’t sure that he wants to room with him. But this Geek and jock hit it off well.  Fielding and Mick become the best of friends. Mick makes sure that fielding is taking care of himself since Fielding tends to forget everything when he is studying and he likes to be his care taker. Fielding likes Mick ALOT.

Fielding is sheltered his whole life by his overbearing mother and has no idea about romantic feelings or just friendly feelings at that. So when a girl named Susan DeVree says that she wants to kiss him he asks Mick to help him.  Mick doesn’t want to do it because he isn’t gay.  Fielding doesn’t understand that.  What does being gay have to do with it he is just teaching technique? He tries to get him to do it with money and extra chores and eventually he wears him down.  Unfortunately,  Mick and fielding both feel something during that kiss.

This is one of my all time favorite books the Geek and Jock theme is a major bonus I mean, How sexy is that?  I loved that the breakdown Mick has feels real.  In some books it feels that there is a moment of  “oh my am I really gay” and then right after “lets get it on” it wasn’t like that.  Mick was really struggling with it.  Fielding was…well Fielding.  You have to read the book to get him.  He is so cute and nerdy and misunderstood and really who wouldn’t want their very own fielding?

One thing about this book is that there is not a ton of sex, to be honest there is only one scene. If you are anything like me that will deter you from the book.  However, give this one a try it really is good sex or no.  I would give this book a 10 if ratings went higer than a 5 but since they only go to 5,  I give it a 10. Until Next Time.
