Daisy Harris' College Boys and My Review
Daisy Harris is here today with her book, College Boys. I've got a review a little further down, but I want to let you know you should comment. Why? Daisy will be awarding a $20 Amazon GC to one randomly drawn commenter during the tour and a $20 Barnes and Noble GC to the host with the most comments. I don't know about you, but I love a GC so I'm commenting. Want to keep following the tour? Here's the link! Now let's get on with the book, the boys, and the reviews!
When soccer star Chris moves next door to an openly-gay classmate, he doesn’t realize the wall between their rooms will be so thin he’ll hear his neighbor’s every move. But soon he and Peter become friends, and Chris is intrigued—imagining what happens on the other side of the wall.
Active on the Queer Student Council, Peter wishes he wasn’t so damn hot for his straight neighbor. He can’t tell if Chris is flirting or in denial or what, but Chris’ innocent overtures lure Peter into flirtation that throws his world into chaos. Peter doesn’t want to date a closet case, but he desperately, passionately wants Chris.
Soon Chris must choose whether to run away from his new feelings or embrace a relationship with the guy he loves. And Peter must decide if he can give his heart to a guy who hasn’t yet figured it all out.
This is a sweet but spicy read. It's my first foray into the work of Daisy Harris, but it won't be the last. The characters stayed with me far after the last page. I wanted to know what happened to them after the book. That doesn't happen often, so kudos to Ms. Harris.
Peter and Chris are wonderful. I loved the confusion and hesitation. They had to learn each other. Ms. Harris writes their journey from point A to point B tenderly. I empathized with both men and rooted them on to get their HEA. There are also a couple of secondary characters that I would love to see get their own story. Grin.
The heat in this story literally sizzled the pages. Not only did I need a cool drink afterwards, but I had to go back and reread a few times to savor the moments. The patience, the urgency and the passion... it all culminated in a great story I'll happily read again and again. I recommend this book.
Birkenstock-wearing glamour girl and mother of two by immaculate conception, Daisy Harris still isn’t sure if she writes erotica. Her paranormal romances start out innocently enough. However, her characters behave like complete sluts. Much to Miss Harris’s dismay, the sex tends to get completely out of hand.
If you like science-y subplots, fantastical creatures, and red-hot chemistry, you’ll love Daisy Harris.
