Seth Ferguson has never shared his secret for admiring the male body. His parents would cut off his college tuition. However, a secret celebration of Independence Day with Ryan Jacobs, the university's star swimmer, may spark more fireworks than cast in the sky and challenge Seth to embrace the spirit of the holiday.

Will Seth learn something college could never teach him...that with Ryan's love he can claim his own independence?

The first time was never this hot!

I love a story where there’s confusion, missed chances, and white hot beginnings. This story fit the bill. Renee Ashley William’s has a sweet story in Up All Night. Seth and Ryan are fun characters and I enjoyed reading their story.

I loved the tentative feel of this short. The boys want to touch and yet there’s the hesistation. It’s sweet and got me involved. I wanted to shove them together. That’s one of the great things about this short story. I got involved with the characters. I thought about Seth and Ryan after the book closed.

If anything, wanting to know what happened to them after the book was the one niggle I had with the book. I got so wrapped up with them, coming to the end of the book was almost saddening. This book has a great beginning and I do hope the author revisits them so I can find out what’s in their future. Ms. Williams, please do revisit them! I’m game to see Ryan and Seth again. The other small niggle was the quickness with which the story did end. I won’t go into detail, but the story seemed to stop almost too abruptly. That’s not a totally bad thing. It means I was so invested, I hoped for the next scene.

If you’re looking for a change of pace story, where there’s love and romance and something hot, then this might be the book for you!

Thanks so much for the great review! I'm glad you were so involved you hated to see it end.
