Closet Case by K.M.Neuhold

Closets are for shoes, not people

Don’t miss this sweet, sexy, hilarious M/M romance

Universal buy link:


That awkward moment when you accidentally fool around with a closet case. I have a strict policy against dating closeted guys. Confused straight guys? Absolutely. Guys who don’t mind being out and proud? Duh. But closet cases are a hard pass. Been there, done that, have the t-shirt with a giant picture of a broken heart on it. It would be a lot easier to stick to my dating rule if Matthew Hart could be slightly less irresistible.

Being a closeted gay college football player is not all it’s cracked up to be. After I broke my high school boyfriend’s heart by refusing to come out of the closet, I swore off serious dating. I don’t want to hurt anyone like that again, and I’ll admit I’m protecting my own heart in the process, too. It was a lot easier to stick to my no dating rule before I laid eyes on Jax Greene. He’s exactly my type in every possible way. If there’s even the slightest chance that history won’t repeat itself, I want to see where things might lead. Convincing Jax to give me a chance though might be the toughest play I’ve ever made.

**This book is the first M/M installment of the Sexy Nerd Boys series, but can be read as a stand-alone. Recommended for 18+ due to language and all kinds of hot sex

4.5 Stars!

So this book surprised me in a way. It's my first time reading this author and I didn't realize this was part of a series. The nice thing, though, was that it didn't really matter, it can be read as a standalone. I wasn't sure if I was going to enjoy it but it was quite funny and entertaining. I found myself connecting to the characters even though I had no idea if I would.

Jax is out and proud. With an irresistible charm and the ability to rock the Chic Nerd look (don't dare to call him a Hipster) he catches the eye of Matthew, their College Quarterback with dreams of the NFL. Jax loves to mess around with curious straight guys and hook up with guys who have no problem admitting they're gay. Closeted guys, though, are out of the question.

Matthew can't come out, not to his family or to his teammates. With dreams of playing in the NFL, the last thing he wants is for people to know he likes d*ck. Too bad Jax fascinates him like he does. Sooner than he realizes Matthew finds himself getting closer and closer to Jax and he can't think of ending things. But how long can it really last? Jax refuses to be shoved back in the closet for anyone, even Matty.

I fell in love with Jax. At first, I thought he was a little too campy but soon I realized it was more an act than anything. He's funny and cute and I adored the way he was when he was with his friends. I felt sorry for him sometimes, though, because I couldn't imagine being in love with someone who doesn't want to even touch you in public. For the most part, I think he handled it pretty well.

Matthew was likable and he and Jax were great together but he started to make me angry. I get really frustrated at people who are always making excuses and basically holding others in limbo. He knew what he was doing wasn't fair to Jax but he just kept doing it and it was very selfish. I was able to forgive him since he is young and in College and wanted to be drafted. Had he been older I wouldn't have been able to stand it, though.

Overall, Closet Case was a well-written and engaging read and I would totally recommend it. I can't wait for the next MM book from this author (book 1 of a new series) and the opportunity to see what else she has to entertain us with.
