ARC REVIEW : Watching and Wanting (Housemates #4) by Jay Northcote


Watching Jude’s cam show stirs desires Shawn’s always denied...

Shawn is adrift. Recently graduated, he’s stuck in a dead-end job that barely pays the bills. His girlfriend dumped him, his friends have moved on, and he’s still in Plymouth—going nowhere.

Jude is a student living in the same shared house. Out and proud, he’s everything Shawn’s been running from since he hit puberty. When Shawn discovers Jude works as a cam boy, he can’t resist the urge to watch one of his shows. It makes Shawn want things that scare him, yet his fascination forces him to confront his attraction.

Keen to explore his bicurious side, Shawn suggests they do a show together. Jude agrees, and things get complicated—and kinky—fast. But Jude isn’t looking to get involved with someone so deep in the closet. If Shawn’s going to get what he wants, he needs to find the courage to stop hiding from himself and be honest about who he is.

Length: 52,000 words approx.
Although this book is part of the Housemates series, it has new main characters, a satisfying happy ending, and can be read as a standalone.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Sooooo...what is it about Mister J and college boys and their hotness that drives me hot and bothered?
Damn, Shawn and Jude are so freakin' good and natural together!
And Mr.J knew how to writes hotness and sweetness at the same time.
And made my cute cheeks blushed when Jude did that to that practically virgin Shawn! Cough...cough...

I liked the interactions among all the housemates, especially Mac and Jez..OMG they're so obvious.
Poor Shawn. Good thing is, Jude understood. And whatever Jude said to him, I think it was just opened his eyes about his sexuality. Shawns denial about his sexuality didn't bother me at all, it was a right portion of denial, me think.
Oh, and the hotness guys...better NOT reading this one in public! Consider yourself warned!

Just can't helped myself to tell you the good news! Jay Northcote, you nailed it babe!

Read the book!
