Street Smarts by Bianca Sommerland


The one time geeky high school teacher, Rupert ‘Rip’ Martinez, tries to play the hero, it almost costs him his life. Maybe he should leave the rescuing to the tough guys, like the man who saved him, Otto Shriver. Tattoos, dog tags, and a heart of gold, Otto is exactly the type of man Rip would go for.

In his dreams.

When socially awkward meets carefree and confident, it’s probably best they go their separate ways. Their only excuse to ever see one another again is an adorable pup in need of a good home.

Unless they really don’t need any excuses at all.


This was such a surprise! Bianca Sommerland has mostly m/f or m/f/m books listed on GoodReads, but I saw that there is at least one other m/m book listed for her and I plan on reading it!

The story has virtually no angst. Our couple meets and essentially falls in love in a few days time. But, it’s a very sweet story with one of my favorite elements: bad boys gone good.

Otto saves Rip after Rip rescues a dog…. Awwww. There’s a bit of family drama and then they realize that they like one another and … you get the idea.

But… the writing was very fluid, the couple was uber-sweet, the smexy times were fairly hot and – yay – a dog!

If you’re in the mood for something sweet, with virtually no angst and lots of feels, give this one a try!
