When physics grad student Fielding Monroe and skirt-chaser and football player Mick Colman become college housemates, they’re both in for a whole new education. Mick looks out for the absent-minded genius, and he helps Fielding clean up his appearance and discover all the silly pleasures his strict upbringing as a child prodigy denied him. They become best friends.
It’s all well and good until they run into a cheerleader who calls Mick the ‘best kisser on campus.’ Fielding has never been kissed, and he decides Mick and only Mick can teach him how it’s done. After all, the physics department’s Christmas party is coming up with its dreaded mistletoe. Fielding wants to impress his peers and look cool for once in his life. The thing about Fielding is, once he locks onto an idea, it’s almost impossible to get him to change his mind. And he just doesn’t understand why his straight best friend would have a problem providing a little demonstration.
Mick knows kissing is a dangerous game. If he gives in, it would take a miracle for the thing not to turn into a disaster. Then again, if the kissing lessons get out of hand they can always blame it on the mistletoe.

Short review for a short book.
In short, this was ADORABLE.
Kinda silly, but sweet with medium angst.
Mostly, it was WAY too short.
Fielding was just adorkable in his Sheldon-esque nerdiness a la “Big Bang Theory.” But thankfully, not nearly as rigid.
Mick was the big-man-on-campus hottie/ladies man coming to terms with being bi. Angst aside, he was always a really good guy keeping an eye out for his awkward pal.
I wanted the whole story to last longer before we got to the One-Year-Later Epilogue.
This was fun.
