Présentation de l'éditeur

Mark Cooper is angry, homesick, and about to take his stepdad’s dubious advice and rush Prescott College’s biggest party fraternity, Alpha Delta Phi. Greek life is as foreign to Aussie transplant Mark as Pennsylvania’s snowstorms and bear sightings. So, when the fraternity extends Mark a bid, Mark vows to get himself kicked out by the end of pledge period. But then he’s drawn into Alpha Delt’s feud with a neighboring fraternity.

Studious Deacon Holt is disappointed to learn Mark’s pledging Alpha Delt, his fraternity Phi Sigma Kappa’s sworn enemy. Mark is too beautiful for Deacon to pass up an invitation for sex, but beyond sex, Deacon’s not sure. He wants a relationship, but a difficult family situation prevents him from pursuing anything beyond his studies.

Mark and Deacon’s affair heats up as the war between their fraternities escalates. They explore kinks they didn’t know they had while keeping their liaison a secret from their brothers. But what Romeo and Juliet didn’t teach these star-crossed lovers is how to move beyond sex and into a place where they share more than a bed. That’s something they’ll have to figure out on their own--if the friction between their houses, and between Mark and America, doesn’t tear them apart.

Seriously, this book has all of that. I melted the first time Deacon thinks as Mark of an angry bunny. It's so accurate. Mark is still new to America, and he's just started college. Deacon is the far more mature, old, wiser...blah. He's still in college too, so the potential for growth with each of this characters is high. And Lisa Henry meets that bar. Each guy grows as a person and a partner, and they have the opportunity to explore their sexual desires in new ways. This isn't a story about "finding your gay"; these guys are secure in their sexual identities. What they learn is individual kinks. And oh boy is that some hawtness. It feels spoilery to share, but suffice to say, these were a touch out of the norm and completely well-done. There was a believable level of desire mixed with uncertainty and exploration.

There are some outside factors pressing in on them individually and as a couple. While I wasn't much a fan of the Alpha Delts and Mark's pledge process, I was glad the other potential OTT elements were contained. When I realized the challenges Deacon faced with his family, I was certain there would be some wild ridiculous happenings with resentment, infidelity, and who knows what else. I was pleasantly surprised to discover the story stayed focused on the relationship between Deacon and Mark with the other parts working themselves out in natural and comfortable ways.

While their youth makes me feel this is a HFN rather than HEA, I thoroughly enjoyed this book. Great characters and writing. I'd enjoy a sequel in this world or even with these two guys.

Right off the bat, this became a ten-lane wide highway right back to college for me. It’s already a fab time to look back on and this was one more way of doing that. For so many of us, this was a time of, not just expressing ourselves, but discovering how the heck we wanted to do that to begin with. The passion exuded and used for issues important to me, it was also here. A cool thing about reading a story like this is that is helps remind me of how I was back then, and that no, it’s not coming on too strong when I make it very clear how I feel on any particular subject, how I’ll defend and take care of the people who are important to me, how having fun is sometimes just about that, having fun – it doesn’t always have to have a purpose.

Some of you may be thinking, wow, that sounds kind of serious. I thought this was about university and frat houses and sex and hotness? Yes, it is, have no doubt. It also has a story, several story lines, woven together through a number of supporting characters that set up shop in the midst of this thing called Mark Cooper and Deacon Holt. Humor and excitement, embarrassing situations that sometimes lead to awesome discovery, puzzle pieces about life that seem to slip into place as you start making your way in the world, especially with someone you’re finding yourself unable to resist. There, see? Heh, yeah, FUN.

Let me say that, whether you ever went to college/university doesn’t really matter when you read this story. All of us were 18 and 21 at some point and how we were back then… or now. ;)

Mark is 18, Deacon is 21, and if you sit back and think for even just a minute, it wouldn’t be difficult to imagine the things they are going through and experiencing here together. The cool thing is that these two writers have come up with a fantastic story in which to present this unique time in life. Have I mentioned the sex? Because the almost-sex and quickie sex and hot sex and the sweet sex are all here, and very well done, at that.

These two ladies know how to write. It feels very natural, smooth. The dialogue flows and it’s easy to picture all of the places and hear all of the sounds. I will say that this particular story is definitely on the lite end of the scale when it comes to the angst and BDSM factors. There are problems that arise, and Mark and Deacon do try some things, but none of it is extreme. It’s an interesting dynamic between the two of them. The difference in their ages does play a small role but not overly so. Their family situations and just their personalities lend themselves to a wide range of possibilities and interactions that work to build something larger. I know I’ve already used this word but it’s just fun to watch.

There are some typical experiences here but they fit the story. There are a few things that happen but then appear to be left unresolved, though most of them are given a return visit later on. There are surprises and it’s one of the best things a writer can do that make a story that much better to read for me.

Being college age is that strange mix of feeling like you know a lot but then have no clue. It means being brave but then being unsure. It feels like you can conquer the world but then question if you’re going about it the right away. It creates that unique atmosphere of being able to explore, including sexually, while still feeling safe and exciting all at once. Reading this story, with its emotion and hilarity and yes, FUN, I remembered it all. College also means success doesn’t always come from achieving the original goal. Something we can take with us through the rest of life.

Ok, so, let me recap: humor, important subjects, sex, discovery, family, oh and FUN. There aren’t too many guarantees in life, but I’m pretty dern sure you’ll have fun reading this. :) This is a re-read for me, fo sho.

I would like to thank Loose ID for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.

I'll admit to being nervous because I am emphatically not a fan of raunchy, R-rated American Frat comedies. There were moments, especially in the early chapters, when the authors skirted perilously close to cliché in the portrayal of Alpha Delta, but as we grow to understand, 90% of the problem is that the boys themselves have seen too many of those movies and seem intent on living up to their very questionable ideas of fun. But thanks to the authors' overall self-consciousness, especially the clever allusions to Romeo and Juliet, the book deploys and then undermines the usual frat, excuse me Fraternity, clichés, creating a tender, insightful story about growing up, finding your place, and falling in love.

With Mark himself, the authors manage the almost miraculous balancing act of creating a character who struck me as being at once the epitome of the modern, disaffected teen and also wholly fresh and original. Crucial to this was the avoidance of the usual YA-friendly explanations for Mark's behavior--a horrible step father, a neglectful mother, some early trauma--in favor something far more subtle and unexpected. Their restraint made Mark feel unusually real. In a lot of ways, Mark rebels because he doesn't have much to rebel against. He aggressively redefines his world to fit his need to lash out. This is a quality that we and Deacon discover gradually over time through dozens of small touches, instead of having it shoved down our throats in some tearful monologue.

All of this is good, but what made the book truly a pleasure to read was the writing. Though all of their books have been great, I think the Rock/Henry collaboration really comes into its own in Mark Cooper versus America. The narration is tight and energetic and perfectly infused with the highly distinctive idiom and mentality of its two MCs. I marked dozens of memorable, witty passages and phrases that just made me happy in the way that only terrific writing can:

The fraternity thing was just the latest idea out of Jim's Top One Hundred Ways to Get Mark a Friend or Die Trying. Copyright Jim, 2013.

Angry bunny.

The guy, drunk, stumbled and went face-first into a bale of hay.
Everyone cheered. It was that sort of party.

And then there were the moments of insight that made me know and care about these characters:

It was fine to be mocked or disliked on his own terms. But his sexual orientation was such a naked target, unfortified by nonchalance and lacking the benefit of being a persona he'd constructed. Gay Mark wasn't sheddable like Smart-Ass Mark or Bitter-About-the-Move Mark.

Deacon smiled. He was pretty sure he was just the latest in a long line of people who had no idea what Mark Cooper was thinking.

Given that in many ways this book is the "Mark Circus," I was gratified that I found Deacon as rich and compelling a character in his quieter way. Part of the strength of the book is that neither Deacon nor Mark could be fully realized without the other. Only Deacon recognizes the vulnerable young man beneath Mark's smart-ass demeanor. On the flip side, Mark enables Deacon to cut loose and actually have fun. On a deeper level, Deacon is someone who needs to take care of others, and with Mark he's finally able to do so in a way that is mutual and fulfilling instead of draining and self-sacrificing.

All and all, a wonderful, funny, insightful book. Highly Recommend.

Oh Mark Cooper you sexy little angry kinky bunny. You are a delightful read. You bring humor and angst and fun and kinkery to the pages. You are carefree and hide all the other stuff you think no one sees so well. You also bring fun and debauchery into Deacon’s life which he didn’t even know was missing or that he needed it. Mark Cooper you’re simply an all around awesome guy.
Mark is also a hot mess. I have no problem admitting one of my favorite types of male male romance reads are the college boys. They are fun reads. Mark and his reckless ways makes this a fun read. He’s angry and homesick and sick of not having easy access to all the amazing Aussie things he misses. He’s trying to not try to fit in and conform. He has to go against the grain it is simply what he does. So on hi eighteenth birthday he does the only thing that makes since to him, walks into a bar and order a beer.
The beer order is quickly turned down by Deacon the bartender. Deacon does however offer him the one thing he believes Mark needs most of all, a friend. Mark being who he is quickly takes that friendship and turns it into a very beneficial arrangement for both of them. The more time they spend together the more of Mark Deacon discovers and they soon find themselves in a very enjoyable situation that has them exploring romance they didn’t know they wanted and kinks they never knew they had.
Lisa Henry and J.A. Rock have treated readers to an extraordinarily fun read. Mark Cooper versus America is full of sarcasm and wit and lighthearted good fun, with a playful side of kinkery.

Thoroughly enjoyed this one. The differences between American and Australian language and culture made for a fun read. Mark has such a "I could care less what you think" attitude which when we get to look under that veneer, we see it is really just a way of protecting himself from being hurt. I was very fond of Deacon's character. He was trying so hard to be the perfect son and student while denying his own feelings and needs.
The chemistry between Mark and Deacon is excellent. I thought the progression of the relationship felt realistic. Mark's sexual request to Deacon could have been a squeamish point for me but it was handled very well and worked for the characters and story. It was heartwarming seeing Mark build friendships, mature, accept compromise, learn to trust and fall in love. Finished the book with a smile.
