Synopsis from Goodreads
And a revolving door across the college suite I somehow ended up in because my first name is Shawn.
They don’t discriminate. Girls. Guys. Grandmas. Plants (okay maybe not plants) all walks of life stroll in stressed to the brim, and leave so satisfied I’m wondering what sort of talents lie behind that door.
My roommate calls them the pleasure ponies.
But the rest of the college campus?
They just call them the new face of Wingmen Inc. A paid for relationship service that makes big promises.
Breakup? They’ll glue you back together again.
Depressed? They have the magic pill.
Lonely? Just spend a few minutes while they rub you down and you’ll forget all about it.
And broken hearts? Well, that’s their specialty. They’ll fix you.
For a price…
I swore I wouldn’t get involved.
But apparently they like a challenge, and a girl who doesn’t put up with their BS is basically like waving a red flag in front of a bull.
They. All. Charged.
But one holds my attention above the rest.
Knox Tate looks like a Viking — and getting pillaged is starting to look more appealing by the day. Though he’s hiding something — all of them are. And the closer I get. The more I realize that some things are left better in the past.
You’ve read reverse harem books before — but you’ve never read one like this. It’s not what you think, or is it? Dive in and find out…
Knox, Leo, Finn, and Slater are waiting, and they aren’t patient men.
Welcome to the new face of Wingmen Inc — You’re welcome.
Shawn has changed schools in need of a fresh start, although the reasons behind the desire for a clean slate are not initially divulged. Although there is a mix-up with the accommodation part of the transfer thanks to Shawn’s unisex name. Leaving Shawn sharing a suite with 4 guys, not just any guys at that – these are the cream of the crop recruited as the next generation of Wingmen catering to the production of pleasure!!!
The dynamic of the guys is a little off kilter thanks to an incident 3 years before creating a rift between Shawn’s roommate, Slater, and the rest of the guys in the suite. Each guy has a specific part to play and they all blend harmoniously together, Can you imagine having the attention of not one but three extremely attractive men focused on you – what a boost to your ego, but it could also become a little addictive.
While all of the guys are hot in their own ways, Shawn is drawn to Knox the most, and while the feeling is reciprocated, Knox is carrying a lot of baggage stemming from the aforementioned incident, preventing him from forming a deeper connection with Shawn.
There is a lot of action within Co-Ed not only from the main characters interactions but also delving into the pressures placed on athletes and the seedier side of college life where it isn’t safe to take drinks from relative strangers.
As the story progresses the revelations flow providing insight and understanding to the characters actions. Each revelation provides the opportunity for the characters to move past the barriers that are holding them in place. It is the character development that makes Co-Ed so endearing.
There is a little twist within Co-Ed adding an extra element to the story and aiding the sense of fulfilment from the outcome within the narrative.
