Description; 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.
My Rating; 3.5*s
My Review; College Boys was an enjoyable read for me, but I just felt like something was missing. Lack of a background...maybe. Or maybe I would have liked to explore emotions a little more.
I don't think I could connect with the writing that well.
I would recommend this book to those who like m/m fiction. I will also be reading the rest of the series...at some point. I'm just not so excited and in a rush about it as I have been with other books recently, you know?
I liked the main characters. I liked their story, though there was a little bit in the lack of romance for me. Maybe that's why I didn't connect with it so well.
It was more sex than actual relationship stuff. Whilst that was enjoyable, I like a bit of romance with my sex in books.
I wonder what the rest of the series will bring me.
