Blurb: Jacob’s in a pickle. He needs a new flatmate, and soon. And what better way to advertise than on the noticeboards around campus?
Trouble is, someone is taking down his ads.
Jacob writes to the offending thief, little expecting to be answered—and soon he finds himself in a deeper pickle: who is this Mr. X that he keeps writing to?
And how can Jacob be falling for him?
I really liked how they didn’t use electronics to communicate but did the old school way of note passing. I love passing notes, especially in HS, we used to fold them into cool shapes like hearts and stuff. That was what we did in high school so this was right up my alley. I did think the notes seemed a bit too pubic for me though.
The mystery of who it was was fun and had just enough oomph to keep my attention. I kept trying to figure out who it was right along with Jacob. The only thing that I had an issue with was how did either of them know what their sexual preference was? It seemed intuitive to me and that’s not really something that I think would be apparent by passing a few notes. but hey, I can suspend my belief for a short novella.
Their banter was easy going and flirty. Just what I needed in between my series reading funk and a number of DNF’s that I have been going through. If you are looking for a quick, cutesy, romantic m/m romance, this is the one to pick up.
