Reviewing Uncovering Ray (Ellery College #1) by Edie Danford

Uncovering Ray (Ellery College #1) by Edie Danford 3*
BLURB: When the right love uncovers the wrong secrets...
Hey, man--you a chick or a dude? Dealing with the same old boring question is a downer for college drop-out Ray Fayette, especially when it's asked by the low-tipping, over-privileged students at the Ellery Diner.
When six-foot-five, muscle-bound straight arrow Wyatt Kelly publicly smacks down a fellow frat bother for caveman behavior, Ray's interest is sparked. Wyatt's not-so-subtle attraction sparks a few other things too.
But getting to know Wyatt proves dangerous. His sexy smiles and smart questions slide under even Ray’s prickliest defenses. Worse, his academic mentor happens to be Ray’s ex-stepfather, the dictatorial jerk who just kicked Ray out of his house. Again.
Wyatt suggests a housing arrangement that has surprising appeal—there’s space available at his frat house—but he’s unaware just how complicated Ray’s “identity issues” are. Ellery College kicked out Ray for a reason—a reason that could deep-six Wyatt’s academic career and Ray’s newly hopeful heart.

Are you a chick or a dude?
I read a fair bit of this book with no idea if Ray was a chick or a dude because there is no hint of Ray's gender. I won't tell you here which Ray is as it will be too much of a spoiler to do so. What I will say is, if not for that hook, I would have given up on the story, the relationship between Ray and Wyatt being the only interesting thing in it. The other characters seemed rather flat and the plot was very standard and uninspiring, it was really just another college romance story. I might have enjoyed the book more if the gender question had been left unanswered until the end because once that was revealed the book lost most of it's spark.
