Ethan may have followed his high school sweetheart to college only to get dumped his first day there, but he’s not going to let that stop him from exploring all his new life has to offer. Sex-only hookups, his photography, new friends and a campus-wide game of zombies vs humans all help keep his mind off his broken heart and move him toward building a new, better life without his ex.
And then there’s Wyatt. Mysterious, grouchy—hot. And possibly not gay. But Ethan’s not going to let that stand in the way of figuring out what makes Wyatt tick. New college goal? Get Wyatt into bed and into Ethan’s life.
Step one: arrange a “tutoring” date. Step two: “accidentally” bump into Wyatt as often as possible. Step three: explore the sexy body under that ever-present hoodie. And when their friendship deepens into something neither of them expect, convince Wyatt he’s not just a pity fling or a one-time hookup, but that Ethan is in it for the long haul.
Poor Ethan… even though I knew it was coming, his breakup with Blake was still heartbreaking. To put it mildly, Blake was a jerk. I liked the fact that Ethan didn’t let it totally crumble him though. It took him a while to pick himself up and come up with his plan, but not too long.
Wyatt was a mystery, but I still liked him. I didn’t particularly like Ethan using him to get Blake back for more than one reason. The obvious was because Blake was a jerk (have I mentioned that?) and the less obvious was that I didn’t want Ethan to ruin anything he may eventually have with Wyatt.
Besides Wyatt, Ethan had a couple other friends that were great. His roommate Connor and his friend Makayla help him to see that there’s more to campus life than classes and his dorm.
Even though I didn’t approve of Ethan’s initial motives, he came around and I ended up wanting to learn more about the mysterious Wyatt as much as he did. Getting Him Back turned into a sweet romance that I really didn’t expect. What’s even better is that this isn’t the end, which is good, because there is definitely more to their story.
