Poster Boy (Theta Alpha Gamma #5) by Anne Tenino

I have been loving the Theta Alpha Gamma series from Anne Tenino.  All of her books are awesome but the TAG series is the funniest of all of her works.  The boys of TAG have taken the idea of brotherhood and run with it.  They are all about being inclusive and (sometimes overly) supportive of their brothers.  Check out the cover and Goodreads blurb:

It's all fun and games until someone puts his heart out.

After being outed to his hockey team and then changing schools, Jock figures he’s due for something good—like the sex he missed out on in the closet. Toby, the hot grad student he meets at a frat party, seems like a great place to start, and their night together is an awesome introduction to the fine art of hooking up.

Toby’s heart takes a bruising after the near-perfect experience with Jock leads to . . . nothing. He’s been left on the outside as his friends pair up into blissful coupledom, and he’s in danger of never completing (or starting) his thesis. Can’t something go right?

Then Toby’s coerced into chaperoning a Theta Alpha Gamma trip to France. Not that he’s complaining. What better place to finish his thesis and get over that frat boy? Except Jock’s outing is leaked to the press, turning him into an unwilling gay rights martyr, and he decides France would be a great escape, too. It’s a break from reality for both guys, but they soon find their connection is as real as it gets.
I did not really like Toby through the first few books because he just comes off as so abrasive. I felt like Toby was very selfish and maybe even terribly uncaring. Seeing Toby with Jock... it really opened me up to him. It really opened a window into his character. I appreciated that. Really.  Toby is really sweet on the inside and it was great to see that.  He is so hurt by Jock leaving him all alone but he doesn't realize how deep of a mark he's left on Jock.  The two of them need to really just figure it all out together.  They may get their happily ever after in the end but it won't be easy or pretty to find.  What a sweet and funny M/M book!

You can click here to find the Theta Alpha Gamma series on Goodreads.  Anne Tenino can be found on her website, Facebook, and on Twitter.  I give Poster Boy 4 Fairies for a sweet and funny romance.
