Served Hot by Annabeth Albert

I received this as an ARC though Net Galley in exchange for an honest review.

This was a nice romance story. I liked that both Robby and David have their own issues an insecurities. Neither man is fixing the other, and they both have to learn how to be in an adult relationship. There are misunderstanding, but no silly big understanding. I liked that while Robby can be jealous, and insecure he takes ownership of his feelings, and understands how many of his problems with David are really Robby's own problems. I do have a few issues. I would love is m/m authors stopped using statements like "I'm not a girl" especially in an pejorative manner. I see it a lot, and I wouldn't miss it if m/m stopped reinforcing traditional ideas of female passivity, and emotional weakness. I also wouldn't have minded a little more awkwardness in the sexual encounters in this book. I think it would have felt a little more honest to the characters, and a little less romance novel than too perfect sex. The plot was simple, and perfect reading for my cold. When I don't have quite the attention span to pay attention to anything too deep, or involved.
