Release Day Review: Whatever Comes First by M.K. Lee


Matthew isn't looking for a relationship. Ask him, and he'll say it's because between work and studying there's just no time. Ask his best friend, Sarah, and the story is a little different and involves a failed relationship that left him raw. 

Enter Joel, a childhood friend of Sarah's recently back in the area. He's not looking for love, either, but he's not adverse to the idea of a little fun. Uncomplicated and on the same page: what could possibly go wrong? 

4.5 Stars 

Matthew and Joel are introduced through their mutual friend, Sarah, who promptly informs Joel that Matthew has recently come out as bisexual, and suggest Matthew and Joel hook-up, so Joel can teach Matthew the ins and outs, quite literally, of gay sex. (pun definitely intended) 

Matthew and Joel quickly take Sarah’s advice and begin to have sex, lots and lots and lots of sex. Over the course of the next few months, Matthew’s feelings for Joel deepen and evolve into much more than just friends with benefits, but he tries to push those feelings aside, scared he’ll push Joel away if he confesses his true feelings. 

I’ll be honest, this is pretty much pure erotica, with just a little romance on the side, and I ate up every word of it. I loved watching Matthew explore his newfound sexuality, something that’s he’d barely scratched the surface of in the past, with just a few awkward encounters. I not only loved watching him explore the physical side of their relationship, and becoming more confident in himself and what he wanted, but I also enjoyed watching him work through his deepening feelings for Joel. Although, in the end, I kind of wanted to smack him upside his head and tell him to open his eyes! 

I loved both Joel and Matthew and their chemistry was out of this world. Seriously, I thought my iPad would combust from the heat between these two. This was a well-written and extremely sexy story, filled with page after page of smoking hot sex and a sweet ending that left a smile on my face. Very recommendable!
