Mint To Be (Boyfriend Café book 4) by F.A. Ray

We're back at The Boyfriend Café and we get a chance to read Mal's story... in Mint To Be

From the blurb:

I’ve given up on love by the time tall, dark and handsome sweeps me off my feet — literally.

Everyone around me is sickeningly in love. And I’m happy for my friends. I really am. But when is my turn coming? Why am I still a disposable hookup?

I’m ready to give up on love entirely by the time a bunch of drunk jocks decide to jump me on my way home from the Boyfriend Café. But before a single punch can fall he sweeps in, my dashing hero, my literal tall, dark and handsome, the most gorgeous man I’ve ever seen.

Please tell me this isn’t a dream.


The second I hear a scream I run toward it without thinking. My own teammates are threatening someone, and I rush in to stop them. But the man I save is … beautiful. And funny. And smart. And he brazenly gives me his phone number right then and there.

He has no idea that he just gave his number to the most hunted man at this university.

I’m Omari Carter, a football player everyone assumes is destined for the pros. Scouts are hounding me. Coach is pushing me to decide on my future. My whole family is depending on me. But Mal doesn’t know or care about any of that.

With all the expectations weighing me down, I don’t have time for love. So why can’t I walk away from this?

Mint to Be is an opposites attract MM romance with a major size difference, a grumpy/sunshine dynamic, an athlete meeting a lovable fashion nerd and spicy open door scenes. You can find CWs at

Heather's Review:

Once again, F.A. Ray brews up a sweet and steamy college romance that pairs new adult angst with a heroic meet cute and mint chocolate tea.  Mal and Omari are opposites in many ways - size, personality, appearance, but at the heart of things they both want the same thing... love and acceptance.

This book had a bit of angst, mostly on Omari's part, and of course, plenty of cameos from the other Boyfriend Café friends, but it was a quick and easy read with a lovely HEA and a nice epilogue.  It can be read standalone, but is better having met the other characters in previous books.
