Summary

I’ve had a very bad day and could really use a hug. Male ISO male for platonic but affectionate sleepover. No nookie or commitments. I don’t want to talk about it, just hold me all night and tell me it’s going to be okay.

When my grad school application to join the Raintree Arctic Expedition gets unexpectedly denied, I know exactly who to blame. Professor River Henry has always had it out for me. For some reason, he holds me to a higher standard than everyone else in the evolutionary biology department which means he probably failed to recommend me for the research expedition and he’s most likely going to give my final exam a big, fat F.

All I want to do is drown my sorrows in some platonic cuddles and pretend I haven’t hit rock bottom before my scientific career has even had a chance to get off the ground.

But when Professor Henry is the one standing on the other side of the hotel room door in response to my ad for comfort, I suddenly realize, with breath-stealing horror, just how far I have left to fall.

Very rushed

Starts quite well with an interesting premise that really could have been the basis for a funny story. But it quickly ends up feeling rushed and weird.

Too short

I’d no idea I was essentially downloading a short story. Doubly disappointing because I paid for the audio ad on. The premise was good but the execution was very flawed. As a novel it would have worked.As a short story it’s a rushed mess.
