Review: Frat Wars: Master of Mayhem by Saxon James (Frat Wars #2)
Note: An advance reader copy (ARC) was provided by the author via Foreword PR & Marketing.
Now that readers of the Frat Wars series know who between Sigma Beta Psi and Rho Kappa Tau won as King of Thieves, Saxon James is letting the competitive spirit reign supreme as Sigma House decides who the Master of Mayhem will be. And yes, Master of Mayhem is the title of book two in the series, and it's exceeded all my lofty expectations. If you've read the series starter, King of Thieves, then Robert Harrows--aka Robbie--is most certainly not a stranger to you. He's paired with Brandon Blakely. Yep, we've got Sigma's social chair (Robbie) and their risk manager (Brandon) as the main characters, and while these two may seem to be at odds when it comes to all the partying and pranking they and their brothers get into, when they share that first kiss? Zing! It's unexpected chemistry. They've always been straight, but curiosity may just get the better of both of them. It's Robbie and Brandon's senior year and mayhem is a given, but to what extent?
I had a feeling Robbie was going to steal my heart, right alongside Brandon's! Yeah, the guy could be the poster child for mischief and mayhem, but there was way more to him than that. And while Brandon may have been a stickler for keeping things safe and within reason, but who'd have thought he'd have a wild side to him, one that was willing to take a risk or two with the right incentive? Robbie has seemed protective of Brandon ever since the whole glitter incident that led to the latter's asthma attack in the first book, and when he goes all in, it's a no-holds-barred thing. But again, this is the Rob-Dog we're talking about here, and while his fashion sense may have been questionable, his love and loyalty to those who mattered most was admirable. And Brandy, erm, Brando, umm, Brandon may not have been wholly prepared to manage the ultimate risk of falling for Robbie, but boy, was it worth it! Gah! I loved these two and their story made me laugh and swoon. Saxon James has delivered yet another witty and winsome romance, and I can't wait to see what awaits in the final Frat Wars book. Five stars for Master of Mayhem.
