When soccer star Chris Fischer 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 Cohen 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's 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.
College Boys is the first in the Men of Holsum College series, and is a super short and quick read. Chris has moved in next door to openly gay Peter shortly after his mom passed, and while Chris has met Peter before, they haven’t had much to do with each other until now. Chris claims to be straight, but he’s starting to have some feelings for Peter and the two slowly start to explore the possibility of there being something more between them.
Let’s be honest, this is going to be cliched and predictable. Of course it is. But it’s still a charming read, and one I could see going back to again and again to watch as they slowly explore their feelings and learn about who they are. I enjoyed this book for what it was, and I didn’t go in expecting something ground breaking.
The sex scenes were, well, they may as well have been a fade to black because they weren’t exactly over-the-top steamy, but they were cute and fumbling and, probably most importantly, they were honest. Sex isn’t always perfect, especially when it comes to, well, anal sex. But it worked out in the end, and it was fun to read as they did so.
