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


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.


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!


Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

I really liked Ezra and his insistence on walking around mostly naked, haha. He was also so much *more* than I was expecting from the first few pages (from Holden’s perspective, so that makes sense!) Holden’s way of speaking sometimes annoyed me a bit, and I just didn’t like him as a character quite as much.

The chemistry between Holden and Ezra is so great. They get on each others’ nerves (okay, it MOSTLY Ezra getting on Holden’s nerves!) but part of that is because there’s this underlying, undeniable attraction between them, sizzling just under the surface.

If you love roommates, opposites attract, and/or jock-nerd tropes, this book is for you! Full of witty banter and hilarious hijinks, this is a fun conclusion to The Script Club series.

This is the sixth book in The Script Club series, but can be read as a stand-alone. This was the first book I read in the series, but I’m definitely going to go back and read the others!

I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are unbiased and my own.
