I love books from all genres, but right now I'm on a mystery, contemporary, and YA kick.  I have two cats, Monkey and Peepers.

Frat House Troopers

Frat House Troopers - Xavier  Mayne This started off fairly strong but kind of went downhill about a 1/3 of the way in. Still overall it's cute and funny.Areas of Concern*So things were going fine and dandy with Brandt having the only POV and then out of nowhere at 40% the reader gets this POV from a side character who we never see again and who the reader never gets his POV again. Why was this in there????? WHY?*After that, all of sudden the reader starts getting the POV from both Brandt and now Donnelly. I started getting whiplash how often it switched back and forth and often couldn't tell who was thinking what. I don't understand why this started happening and why it wasn't fixed in the editing process.*Next, I can overlook a flimsy plot, but even this pushed it. The case made no sense and appeared to be just put there so that the reader would have as many tropes and hot items in one book. Cops - check, porn stars - check, friends to lovers - check, insta love - check, GFY/OFY - check. There really isn't much realism in this at all.*Repetition, etc: There were quite a few instances where repetition grated. For instance, the word 'luxuriating' or versions were used no less than 7+ times within just a few passages. There were times when the wrong tense was used and there were times when words were missing from a sentence.*Also, I"m not really sure what the author was going for but it was confusing as to how the characters viewed themselves sexually. 5 of them had at one point been 100% straight according to the book, and then all of them paired off with men. The idea of bisexuality never came up. It was either I was once straight and now I'm with a man or it was I was 100% straight and still am, but I'm with this guy now. It was just really confusing.The restOk, so I know it seems like I"m picking it apart, but with all of that above said, I still really enjoyed this book. I loved the characters, especially Bryce and Nestor. Adored those two. I loved the sister and Lucas and Will. And Donnelly and Brandt were pretty great with each other, more so at the beginning than the end. I laughed out loud multiple times and smiled often. I also plan on reading the author's freebies of Will and Lucas and with Nick and his guy. I'd rec this is you want something fun and cute, but you aren't a stickler for the few problems mentioned above.
