Love and History (Script Club #6) by Lane Hayes | Book Review

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

Holden-

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.

Ezra-

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!

How was it?

I’ve read every book in The Script Club series and this entry has two of the things I like most in sports romances – which this book is not – a nerd and a jock falling for each other. To be fair I’d say that Ezra is jock adjacent since lacrosse is not his job but he’s definitely a Broey dude who’s funny and endearing enough to make the searing attraction between him and Holden work.

Their snark and poking at each other was fun and it added to the tension as they got to know each other better. It was great foreplay. As has been the case in the previous books, Holden and Ezra had more layers to them, which gave them depth and grounded them even if Holden tip-toes toward nerd caricature.

For some reason, I did not expect this book to be the end of the series but Love and History is a nice feel-good low-angst about two unlikely dude falling in love. It’s entertaining and the whole series is also narrated by Alexander Cendese – who’s one of my favs – so it’s also worth it on audio.

Rating: 3.5 out of 5.

Love and History is available on The Book Depository and other book retailers near you.
