Say You'll Be Jasmine by F.A. Ray (Boyfriend Café Book 6)

The sixth and final Boyfriend Café book is here and we finally get to see who Avery matches with in Say You’ll Be Jasmine!

From the blurb:

The semester hasn’t even started and I’ve already spent a night at my own student’s house. And I know they want more.


Leaving my small town in Wisconsin for a big university was terrifying. Breaking down in front of a student’s house was even more terrifying. The attraction between that student and myself is the most terrifying thing of all.

Avery is beautiful, intelligent, bold and non-binary. They’re unlike anyone I’ve ever known, and I’m hopelessly drawn to them despite my best intentions.

When Avery drags me out to a drag show, the change of scenery, the darkness, the club music — it weakens my defenses. Once I finally give in, is there any going back? Or is Avery a temptation I simply can’t resist?


My plate is beyond full. I’m taking care of my friend’s house, running the Boyfriend Café, trying to finish my degree — oh, and crushing on my hot new TA.

I really don’t need to make my life even more complicated, but when the guy whose car breaks down in front of my house turns out to be my TA, there’s no going back. I can’t help flirting with Diego, but he’s terrified of crossing the line.

I am not.

I’m going to convince this man to give in to what he wants, no matter how hard I have to work for it.

Say You’ll Be Jasmine is a TA/student MX romance with a non-binary main character, some firsts, a slight age gap and spicy open door scenes. Go to for CWs.

Heather's Review:

Avery's book feels a little bit like a bridge to a new series - the rest of the original Boyfriend Café gang has graduated and moved on - Avery inherits the caretaking of both the cafe and Albert's house and brings in new people to start the cycle again...

I love that Avery has embraced their NB status and freely explores their gender and sexuality... in a slightly taboo way with the man who is also their TA for a gender studies class...

I love how connected these two people are and how their interests align to create discussions around gender studies which was interesting to include.  

This book has a bit more angst than some of the others in the series, owing mostly to Diego's status as a grad student/TA and his feelings of power imbalance and pressure to conform...

Overall, this was a sweet and mostly lighthearted romance and a great finale for the original Boyfriend Café gang.  I wonder if we'll see a revisit in the future with a new crop of students?
