Thanks to Collin Montes, Theta Alpha Gamma now welcomes gay and bisexual students. Persuading his Uncle Monty, president of the TAG Alumni Association, that the open approach won't adversely affect TAG's reputation is Collin's own first step toward coming out. As long as there are no repercussions, he'll escape the closet by graduation.
Enter repercussions, stage left: someone rigs the TAG House water heater to launch through the ceiling, then plants a bomb - thankfully unsuccessful - in the fraternity's basement. Now Collin has his hands full not only trying to convince his uncle that this might not be the work of homophobes, but also dealing with a frat full of brothers worried about their kegger fridge.
Paramedic Eric Dixon can't stop thinking about the kid he met during a call at his former college fraternity house. The age gap between them is trumped by sexy eyes, so when Eric sees Collin again at the bomb scene, he pursues him. Soon, Eric is dreaming of being a househusband, fighting to keep Collin safe from whoever's trying to destroy the fraternity, and helping his sweet young thang realize that repercussions sometimes have silver linings.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?I'm on the fence, simply because I had some issues with the characters and content this time around.
What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?The May/December romance is a trope I adore. I had trouble with the "pet names" being spoken on a constant loop though.
What does Nick J. Russo bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?He brings the characters to life in a way that can't possibly be achieved with words on a page.
Could you see Sweet Young Thang being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?Not really, sorry.
Any additional comments?Okay, let me preface by saying I love, love, loved the narration, Nick Russo can do no wrong. The constant pet names were annoying as crap and actually pulled me out of the story, more than once. And I can't be the only person that read/listened to this book with Michael Jackson singing "PYT" in my head in the background.
I have a love/hate relationship with this installment of the series, where as I've thoroughly enjoyed all the other stories. The insta-love for me didn't quite ring true, though once Eric convinced Collin they were right for each other and worth coming out for, it flowed well. I've already mentioned the pet name peeve. And it's not the pet names per say, it was the over use to the point of beating a dead dog that bordered insanity for me. I also really enjoyed the frat brothers and friends, I laughed so hard more than once that my ribs hurt, I think I even laughed so hard I was crying at one point.
So, I'll say as long as you can overlook the insta-love initiation and the pet name overload, it's a pretty amazing story.
