Rusty Bonham has been alone since the death of his parents and has only his friends to lean on. He studies a great deal and has little time for a social life but hopes to find a special man to love one day. On the night he’s attacked in a bar parking lot, his life changes.  The men he’s secretly attracted to--Professors Adam Ryan and Manuel Corto Delgado, suddenly make their interest in him known. They invite him into their lives and bed, but Rusty isn’t certain getting involved won’t leave him heartbroken.  Can he take the chance?

Professor Sandwich is the newest release in Carol Lynne’s ongoing Campus Cravings series.  Reading previous books could be beneficial but it can be read a standalone. I’ve read all the books since the beginning and looked forward to each new one. I’ve enjoyed each one in varying degrees, but unfortunately, I found this one disappointing. 

I did like Rusty and how he resisted getting involved with two men already in a long-term relationship. Yes, he is attracted to both Adam and Manuel but his rationale for why he shouldn’t get involved with them is based on sound thinking and definitely protects his heart…and made total sense. Ms. Lynne handled him and his emotions in a realistic manner that allowed me to understand how he felt in the situation. That isn’t the case with his relationship with Adam and Manual. I just didn’t get it. I didn’t feel it. There is no spark/chemistry, and for me their turning into a threesome fell flat—it didn’t work. Lastly—there was a dangling thread involving Rusty’s attack and the ending seems abrupt and more like a happily-for now instead of the expected happily-ever-after.
