REVIEW: “Helping Hand” by Jay Northcote


Wanking with a mate isn’t gay—as long as you keep your hands to yourself.

Jez Fielding and James MacKenzie—Big Mac to his mates—are in their second year at uni. After partying too hard last year, they make a pact to rein themselves in. While their housemates are out drinking every weekend, Jez and Mac stay in to save cash and focus on their studies.

When Jez suggests watching some porn together, he isn’t expecting Mac to agree to it. One thing leads to another, and soon their arrangement becomes hands-on rather than hands-off. But falling for your straight friend can only end badly, unless there’s a chance he might feel the same.

Let me ask you this…If one hand is nice, wouldn’t two hands be twice as nice? Silly question, right? Two hands are always better than one! The title fits to an O….err wait, that’s suppose to be T. The blurb nails it. Nails it soo hard. *focus Sheri focus*

Do you ever get a song in your head when you are reading? I hear music in-between my ears all the time. Can you guess what was on repeat while reading this?

“We be strokin….I stroke it to the east, I stroke it to the west…”

Have you heard that one before? Ha! It cracks me up every time. Lots of stroking occurs here.

So here’s the thing, this is definitely a smexy smuttastic pleasurefest with lots of wanking going on. But! It’s Jay Northcote, so it’s sugary sweet, smexy smuttastic pleasurefest with lots of wanking going on. For every *fans self* it’s getting hot in here moment she balances it with a *squeee* aren’t they the cutest!?  It’s not PWP because it has an amazing plot. The emotions are not glazed over with hormones. The boys are not shallow and share some profound revelations. All in all, it’s a damn good time. And…it’s smokin’ HOT.

First year of college (or uni) is extremely liberating. This freedom does come with a price, mainly in the form of responsibility. Some handle the juggling act of flying and keeping your feet on the ground. Jez and Mac did not. Consequently they are both on a short leash their second year. However they find that it’s not quite as bad as they thought when they’ve got each other. Actually, it’s incredible when it’s just the two of them.

A bit tipsy and a lot brave, Jez suggests a mutual wank late one night. Once this door was opened it was impossible to shut it. One thing leads to another and soon it’s not the release they are chasing. Jez has fooled around with guys before and he’s eager to explore all of the feelings Mac stirs in him, but this is frightening territory for Mac.

Do labels really matter? Or is it simply what makes your heart happy? If you’ve always wanted to be a fly on the wall in a house full of young hotties, here’s your chance. I’d  tell you to have fun, but that’s a given.
