Mason Downing is good at a lot of things, but math isn't one of them. What he is good at is hiding the fact that he's a poor kid on a full scholarship at elite Bragson University - though he won't be there for long if he can't get his grades up.

About the Author
S.C. Wynne started writing m/m in 2013 and did look back once. She wanted to say that because it seems everyone’s bio says they never looked back and, well S.C. Wynne is all about the joke. She loves writing m/m and her characters are usually a little jaded, funny and ultimately redeemed through love. S.C loves red wine, margaritas and Seven and Seven’s. Yes, apparently S.C. Wynne is incredibly thirsty. S.C. Wynne loves the rain and should really live in Seattle but instead has landed in sunny, sunny, unbelievably sunny California. Writing is the best profession she could have chosen because S.C. is a little bit of a control freak. To sit in her pajamas all day and pound the keys of her laptop controlling the every thought and emotion of the characters she invents is a dream come true. If you’d like to contact S.C. Wynne she is amusing herself on Facebook at all hours of the day or you can contact her at firstname.lastname@example.org

This story is told from both MCs point of view, a style of writing I like as a rule, but in this case, the first two chapters of the book being an almost carbon copy of each other set it off on the wrong foot for me.
That put aside, I liked these two boys. Both a little insecure, albeit for vastly different reasons, both a little snarky, both so busy wallowing in what was wrong with their lives that they couldn't see what was right. I have a soft spot for a troubled soul and Mason and Carter both hit that spot.
There are very few secondary characters in this book, Carter's parents being the only people who have more than a few sentences, and it's the relationship between Carter and his father that causes the only real issue with this book for me. Early on, Mr Lantor is shown to be a blatant homophobe, controlling, and very dismissive of Carter's feelings and ambitions, but one brief, low drama conversation, over a civilised meal seems to completely resolve their problems. Am I glad they got their happy ending? Yes, delighted, do I wish it was always that simple? Absolutely, but we know it rarely is, and I'm a little disappointed that the opportunity to address this very relevant issue was overlooked.
This is, overall, a light and fluffy book. Mason and Carter are very likeable characters who's flaws are smoothed by having each other in their lives. It's an enjoyable read, cute boys and a sweet relationship, with the ending you hope for, but in my opinion, it had the potential to be a lot more.
