    "'C’mon. You look amazing. And if you’re a good boy and stay hard for me, I’ll fuck you behind a dorm halfway through the party.' 'Yes, Daddy.'" Flirty, hot, fun with a bit of kinky dirty sex. Yeah, this is so my kind of book. Nathaniel isn’t going to give lame-o Greg the time of day if Greg’s not going to pay attention to him. Yeah, he thinks Greg is hot, but if he’s not going to give Nathaniel the attention he needs then that’s just too bad for Greg. He’s missing out all Nathaniel’s fabulousness "'C’mon. You look amazing.

Yeah, he thinks Greg is hot, but if he’s not going to give Nathaniel the attention he needs then that’s just too bad for Greg. He’s missing out all Nathaniel’s fabulousness. Little did he know… Greg was just waiting for the right time to pounce. And, oh boy, did he pounce. Rawr. These two were so effing hot together with their rough sex, their diiiiiiiiiirty dirty talk and the daddy kink. Daddy kink is a hit and miss for me, here it’s a total hit. It was just every once in a while and just during the sexy times. Just how I like it. But back to the rough stuff, Mr. Conservative Greg turned into Mr. Bossy Toppy Topperson in the bedroom -erhm, and outside and in the alleyway and basically anywhere they decided to bang the hell out of each other. They held nothing back in this department and were able to have some kinky new experiences together. Experiences that I very much appreciated. There was just enough drama and angst to keep this novella light and fluffy. There were some serious issues that arose, especially with hate and gay-bashing, but it didn’t take over the story and were dealt with realistically. There were some hints as to struggles Nathanial had to deal with during high school and a little about his current situation with his mom. We got a glimpse and that was it, I would have liked to know a little bit more and to have Nathaniel share his troubles with Greg. But, that might have bogged down this light and fun read with too much angst. The epilogue! Oh, the epilogue. I’m such a sap, so I live for epilogues. I loved that it was later down the road since these guys had some struggles to overcome and it looked like just a HFN for them. But with the epilogue they got their well-deserved, solid HEA that I was dying to see. I’ve said it once, but it’s worth repeating: flirty, hot, fun with a bit of kinky dirty sex. What more could you want with a couple of college boys? Not much.

    3.5 stars. I really liked revisiting the guys at Eta Xi. Greg and Chris and Peter and Nathaniel are characters we were introduced to in College Boys. This story takes place after Chris and Peter have gotten together and Nathaniel is now pledging at Eta Xi where Greg is president. Greg is attracted to Nathaniel even though he is way more flamboyant than Greg is. Greg is a basketball player and has never dealt with the kind of bullying and backlash that Nathaniel has been subject to his whole life 3.5 stars. I really liked revisiting the guys at Eta Xi.

Greg is a basketball player and has never dealt with the kind of bullying and backlash that Nathaniel has been subject to his whole life. He likes Nathaniel, but he wishes he'd turn it down a notch. But he can't seem to stay away from him. They have a hot encounter but then Nathaniel doesn't return Greg's texts. When they see each other next, it's obvious there is some chemistry between them. (view spoiler)[What Greg doesn't know is that that the fraternity guys have not told Nathaniel that he won't be getting in. Greg feels incredibly guilty when he finds this out and gets completely wasted - but Nathaniel still takes care of him. (hide spoiler)] As school comes to and end and Greg is graduating, he makes a last ditch effort to try to talk to Nathaniel but it kind of ends up a disaster. His only recourse it to try to talk to Nathaniel over the summer. Luckily they don't live too far apart with Greg in DC and Nathaniel in Baltimore. I won't spoil the story, but it's a good thing Greg is persistent. Now I'm wondering if there will be another story in this setting??

    "Nathaniel wasn't just gay, he was a raging, bright pride parade with a rainbow-colored cherry on top." This is the story of the very flamboyant Nathaniel.

This doesn't happen easily though as Greg needs to battle his worry that Nathaniel is too 'obvious' (his frat mates judge him poorly) plus is worried about starting a relationship as he is president of the fraternity that Nathaniel wants to join. And Nathaniel tries to keep a distance from Greg, fearful that "Any time they spent together might give Greg a chance to get uncomfortable and act like an asshole. Nathaniel liked to think that Greg was too nice for that, but he knew all too well how even nice guys could be dicks." A nice continuation of the series.

    *3.5* I really liked Nat and Greg, but their romance story was a bit too forward/backward for me. There was no real beginning and no real build up, maybe because they were part of the first book.

He is part of the drama department, and he is flamboyant and brash. He dresses as he wants to and his mannerisms are not subtle. He has personality, style and a heart that is bruised by the number of times he has heard the word “fag” tossed his way, yet he remains true to himself. I adored Nathaniel. Nathaniel and Greg play a game of cat and mouse. Greg is more than the quiet, calm lawyer-to-be than he appears, and Nathaniel is not a cartoon. What I loved especially about this story is how Greg comes to realize the treatment men like Nathaniel have to put with, merely for being themselves. There is a point in the story when I wanted to smack Greg for asking Nathaniel to be different than what he was, especially considering it happened at a breakfast following Nathaniel taking care of Greg. The story is sweet and soft, but I particularly liked (almost as much as I liked Nathaniel) the way it was addressed how the other gay men treated and looked at him. So often in books, the gay community seems to rally around all their members, and in reality this isn’t so. There is discrimination there as well, and this is shown. It’s a very lovely contemporary.

    Greg and Nathaniel are out, young gay men, Nathaniel being the outest and proudest of the couple. Greg isn’t ashamed of who he is, he just keeps it toned down a little more the Nathaniel does. This makes for some very entertaining reading. Greg and Nathaniel are rocking the opposites attract relationship. Each does not know what the other sees in him. They have just begun to even acknowledge the attraction and Nathaniel is going into it assuming it’s just a good time hook up.

After all they are going in different directions with everything in their lives. I loved all of the emotions and struggles that I was taken through as Nathaniel and Greg found something that worked for them. Their differences did not make for an easy budding relationship. Greg is graduating and moving off campus. Nathaniel is younger, still attending school and not going anywhere for the time being. Then they still had the issues of how Nathaniel was viewed by even his peers in the fraternity. The epilogue was a nice addition. At the close of almost any book I am always curious as to where the couple is a few months or years down the road. I’m often left wondering how the relationship was still working in the future. Daisy gives her readers a very sexy snippet into Greg and Nathaniel’s happily ever after.

    3.25 stars (I'm waffling, ok?) Not as good as the first one about Chris and Peter, maybe because it was a bit shorter. Still totally readable and enjoyable and fun. Greg is more of a conservative, macho guy who doesn't "look" gay. Nathanial is as flamboyant as they come; he can't help it, so he's learned to work it vs. hide it. Greg has had the hots for Nathanial for a while (we get this in the first book when Chris notices Greg staring at Nat yet again and wonders when Greg will make the move). 3.25 stars (I'm waffling, ok?)

Greg has had the hots for Nathanial for a while (we get this in the first book when Chris notices Greg staring at Nat yet again and wonders when Greg will make the move). The two guys are very different. Nat doesn't think Greg could possibly want to be with someone like him and thinks Greg is uptight anyway. Greg is sort of embarrassed by Nat sometimes, not realizing that this is just the way Nat is - it's not an act, it's just Nat. I read this book mostly to get a follow-up on Chris and Peter and, even though this is Greg and Nathanial's story, we get glimpses of Chris and Peter and how happy they are together. Cue warm fuzzies. We also get an epilogue three years in the future, which felt right considering these two had a bit going against them.

    2.5 stars. Pretty good m/m romance about the rather serious president of a gay fraternity who finds himself unexpectedly attracted to a very flamboyant junior. While this story touched on issues like prejudice within the gay community, there wasn't any real follow through. I also never got a sense of emotional connection between the main characters. 2.5 stars.

    Nathaniel is out, loud and proud. Unable to be anything other than a diva, he is used to being looked upon with scorn by both the heterosexual and homosexual communities. Seemingly able to shrug off all the “fag” comments that are sneeringly thrown away, he has gotten used to being only good for a particular type of man and a particular type of hook up.

Unable to be anything other than a diva, he is used to being looked upon with scorn by both the heterosexual and homosexual communities. Seemingly able to shrug off all the “fag” comments that are sneeringly thrown away, he has gotten used to being only good for a particular type of man and a particular type of hook up. He doesn’t expect men to want to be with him in a relationship and do the usual relationship activities. He definitely doesn’t expect Greg the preppy president of the gay fraternity to want to have anything to do with him. Greg has wanted Nat for months. Yes, he’s camp, but Nat finds his effeminate ways amusing and his lithe body mouth-watering. The problem is that Nat is a pledge at the gay Fraternity at the college and Greg doesn’t want to hit on him whilst he is on the list. When he finds out that frat members, who are uncomfortable with his flamboyant ways, have blackballed Nat’s membership bid, he has no reason not to seduce him. But will Nat want him now that he is no longer going to become a member of the house he has tried so hard to impress? Once the chemistry between them becomes too hard to ignore, the two hit the sheets (or the grass) in explosive fashions. Once it’s over, Nat immediately starts to shove him away, preparing himself for the inevitable one-night-stand brush-off. Will Greg be able to get through those barriers? Moreover, once he realises the reality of being around someone who is so outwardly gay, and unwittingly invites negative attention, will he want to? Before I start, I have to comment on the cover. Siren covers make me laugh frequently because of the awfulness of them. I think this is one of the only covers that actually seems to represent the story inside and it comes very close to the visual representation I have in my head for the two lead characters. This may seem like an odd complement, but nothing irritates me more than reading a book due to its cover and then discovering that it has sod all to do with the story. I haven’t read a MM story with such a flamboyant lead character before. I wasn’t sure that I would like him, but I loved Nat and his endearing mix of exuberance and wariness. I loved that he owned his feminine side, even exaggerated it, but it pained me to see him also use it as a shield against letting people get too close. There was past baggage, there were examples of people being unable to cope with him, and these all made up the bag of contradictions that made up Nathaniel Reece. He was an outwardly confident man, but inwardly completely insecure. So insecure that I felt a little dread when he didn’t get in the frat as I simply didn’t know where he would feel comfortable outside of that house. He was the life and soul of any party, but he didn’t drink because he felt it made him vulnerable to ridicule. He is the proudest, loudest gay amongst the frat pledges, yet he hasn’t much sexual experience and has very limited relationship experience. He was such a wonderfully well-crafted character that I completely fell in love with him. I hated that he got so much stick from both the heterosexual and homosexual community; they were all bastards to him because he refused to change to fit in. Greg is a completely different kettle of fish. He doesn’t stand out in a crowd, doesn’t invite attention, yet he is the man the gay fraternity chose as their figurehead. He is sexy, smart and completely enamoured with Nat. It was really sweet but completely odd. I couldn’t see where they complimented each other in public; God knows they didn’t need each other to even out their rough edges or fill in any blanks. They just enjoyed each other’s company and it was nice to read. In the bedroom, they certainly complimented each other. Daisy Harris writes great MM sex and this was no exception. With a hit of Dominance and submission, the scenes are graphic, inventive and hot as hell. I will only complain about Nat’s tendency to call Greg “Daddy”; it really did ick me out. It is my only complaint about an otherwise excellent short story. A very sexy short featuring a flamboyant man and his polar opposite. A good addition to the series

Ms. Harris writes fast-paced books with interesting characters that live and breathe off of the written page. Once I started reading Diva and the Frat Boy, I was immediately swept up into the storyline and these characters lives. As the president of Eta Omega Xi, Greg Sanders likes to believe that the fraternity he’s part of is tolerant of all people. To be a member of Eta Omega Xi, the members live proudly out as homosexual males on campus and they fight for gay rights and equality at the school and in their own personal lives. As a senior, Greg is about to graduate and so he’s ready to turn over his responsibility and get on with his life. For the past few months, Greg has been quite fascinated by Nathaniel Reece, who is a hopeful pledge in his fraternity. Because of Greg’s position in the fraternity, he’s kept his interest in Nathaniel on the down low, but he plans on asking the sexy and intriguing man out as soon as his fraternal duties are over. Nathaniel Reece is a creative, fun and sexy man who isn’t afraid to flaunt his flamboyant personality. He’s out and proud and doesn’t care who knows it. For months, he’s been very attracted to the very popular and highly respected president of Eta Omega Xi, but he really doesn’t plan to do anything about it. Although, Nathaniel doesn’t apologize for who he is, he knows that there are some gay men who don’t appreciate his bold sense of style and sassy disposition. So, he’s a more than a little surprised when Greg starts openly flirting and making it very known he’s interested in him for more than just sex. Just as the two men start recognizing the pull of attraction that’s between them, both Greg and Nathaniel find out there are many people who do not like Nathaniel’s flamboyant nature, and do not believe they should be together. Are the feelings Greg and Nathaniel feel for each other strong enough to work through all of the prejudices and their own misgivings to find a life together? I really liked this book a lot. Both Greg and Nathaniel are very unique and interesting characters. Greg pretty much does what’s expected of him and Nathaniel’s creativity and sassiness made them a very easy couple to root for. Even though they look to be total opposites, as the story progresses they find they do have several things in common and they really end up being a very strong couple together. I really appreciated how Ms. Harris did not shy away from the narrow views people have. Even in the gay community, not all men are looked at as equals, and this story does not sugar coat these issues at all. Although I loved Nathaniel, he’s not appreciated for the man he is, therefore, he’s looked down on from the very member of the fraternity he’s trying to pledge with. Although I really liked the first book in this series, I enjoyed this one even better. I do believe that Diva and the Frat Boy could be read as a stand-alone book, but I still recommend reading the books in series order. I know I’m looking forward to reading more books in the Men of Holsum College series, and I’m highly anticipating seeing where Ms. Harris will take us with her next book! If you’re looking for a sexy, well-written romance with intriguing characters with an interesting storyline, this series is definitely a series for you!

    Nathaniel is not the kind of gay man who will ever pass as straight. He’s out and he’s proud, but it’s more than that. He doesn’t walk, he sashays. He wears lip gloss and half shirts. He is the stereotype of the over-the-top effeminate bottom, who bats his eyelashes and hangs a disco-ball in his bedroom. He is, essentially, the polar opposite of Greg. As president of the gay frat on campus, Greg doesn’t hide his sexuality. But he is masculine and conservative. He plays sports and studies law.

He is the stereotype of the over-the-top effeminate bottom, who bats his eyelashes and hangs a disco-ball in his bedroom. He is, essentially, the polar opposite of Greg. As president of the gay frat on campus, Greg doesn’t hide his sexuality. But he is masculine and conservative. He plays sports and studies law. He’s never been bullied or teased for who he is. He fits in and has never thought much about it. When Nat pledges to join Greg’s fraternity, Greg is wary about acting on his attraction to the younger man. Mostly, he worries about the imbalance of power in the relationship, as the frat considers whether to accept Nat among its ranks. But once they make their decision, Greg decides there is no longer a reason to hold back. And he makes his move. Nat never dreams that Greg could want more from him than a quick sexual encounter. And the story focuses a lot on Nathaniel’s perception of himself, of Greg, and of what the two of them could be to each other. In many ways, the story is about the contrast between these two; whether these opposites can do more than just attract, but to find love long term. I have to admit, I didn’t enjoy this installment quite as much as I did College Boys. I think it’s because there were times that Nathaniel made me uncomfortable. I suppose there is some irony in that, because so much of the story is about how he makes everyone else uncomfortable by simply being who he is. And as I got to know him better, I realized how much of it is a defense mechanism. There were times he felt a little like a caricature, but not all the time. There were some poignant moments too, especially when we got a glimpse into his real life when we visited his mother’s home. Something about those glasses made him seem so vulnerable… It was interesting to see the stereotypes and prejudices that exist inside the gay community. As for the relationship, I liked it. The sex was hot and realistic. (I love that Greg carries lube in his pocket.) But the “Daddy” nickname didn’t float my boat. Still, a good story, and I will stick with series.

With her hot men and deep characters, it really isn't difficult to guess why. DIVA AND THE FRAT BOY is a sequel to College Boys, a book I really liked and it's about Nathaniel and Greg, the guys we met as side characters in the first book. I loved Nathaniel from the start, his loud expressiveness and his couldn't-care-less attitude. I love characters like him, so it was little wonder I wanted to know more about him. In this story, Diva ends up applying for fraternity and stubbornly keeps a distance from the Frat Boy – the president of the fraternity, Greg. I have to say Nathaniel appealed to me more than Greg, who certainly had his great moments, but sometimes he was just too contradictory for me and in one particular situation I got offended for Nathaniel. That type of a bad impression tends to stick with me and the author didn't really take enough time to develop the characters as was the case with the first book. This time round, it seemed to be more about the story than the characters and the difference was felt more than once. She touched a lot of tricky subjects, especially when it came to how exactly it felt to be Nathaniel, but it never went further than a simple touch and that was something I really wanted to read. Toward the end, there are a few jumps I didn't care for, but despite all of it I did like this story and the rating is probably somewhere in between three and four. Daisy Harris has a way of charming her readers and with a bit more development character wise, I know we will have a winner with the third book. Someone tell me there is a third book?

Nat on the other hand has always been a bit on the flamboyant “flaming” side of the gay spectrum. Poor Nat and Greg. Greg can either accept Nat how he is or move on and Nat has to have faith that Greg will accept him and is not just using him for a quick, easy lay. I loved Nat in book one and even more so in book two, he’s so content with his self, I just love his f*ck you if you don’t like me attitude. The sex is hot and the relationship progression is natural, but I would to have liked to have gotten more into Nat’s head, it’s pretty obvious from the beginning that Nat makes Greg uncomfortable but Greg is already in love. I want to know when did Nat fall for Greg, when did he know Greg was ‘the one’. I’m always such a fan of Fem boys or pretty boys. That’s what 1st attracted me to this series was a blog I read where Ms. Harris was discussing how fem boys get more grief because they can’t “act straight”. This book is about more than Nat and Greg’s budding relationship, it’s also about the prejudices inside the gay community, the men who can blend in better with straight guys are more accepted. Such a great series, I will defiantly continue reading.

Apparently Nate having a disco ball is a Huge deal Skip three years, and goody their lives still revolve around the next party or going to the next club. I didn't really get to know either character. All I know is they're always at a party and they have sex a lot. But characters were underdeveloped and there was no plot or anything. An the use of pet names was annoying, got so tired of reading, daddy, honey, hon, baby, blah

    I enjoyed this second installment in the Holsum College series, but not nearly as much as I did the first book. Like the previous story, Diva and the Frat Boy takes place on the campus of Holsum College in rural Vermont and is essentially a sweet, quick love story. I thought Nathaniel and Greg were interesting characters, but I never felt like I got to know them well enough to care much about their happy ending.

I really liked Nathaniel in College Boys and wish that he would have been given more depth in his own story than in the earlier book. The romance was very sweet, but there were some moments where I thought Greg was a bit of an ass and he never really groveled enough for my taste. But, all that being said, I still enjoyed reading this book and will definitely continue the series.

    A cute story about two apparently mismatched college guys, one a senior heading to law school and president of the gay frat, the other a flamboyant junior frat pledge. There's not much to say other than that it was a nice story, not overly bizarre, and makes a good afternoon of entertaining reading.

    I typically don't care for overly fem guys in my fiction, but something about Nathaniel is so gripping and real I found myself needing to know more about him. I love Daisy for writing this, and her characterization is flawless. I need more from her for many years to come.

    I had problems with this one. I never felt we really got to know Greg or Nathaniel very well. I also felt like Greg owed Nat a HUGE apology for his behavior, and it never came through. I didn't understand Nat's emotional connection to Greg. Full review to come. I had problems with this one. I never felt we really got to know Greg or Nathaniel very well.

    I like much of this romance. I love that Greg, the more conservative hero, has a big ole crush on Nathaniel. I like that they are both out and have come to terms with who they are. We don't get as much character development as I would like. Greg is particularly sketched with sparse details of family or his basketball life. His journey is around the kinds of homophobia within the gay community and his role in being a bystander in too many situations. He has some movement on these issues but it wo I like much of this romance. I love that Greg, the more conservative hero, has a big ole crush on Nathaniel.

He has some movement on these issues but it would have been a richer book if there was more. The main conflict is the kind of opposites attract and privilege that comes from being straight passing but there are racial and class tensions that are really not fully explored. Nathaniel has his own journey and while we do know more about him in terms of family and other issues, we could know much more. I believe they like each other but deep love needs a bit more than this book gives. There is a forever and forever declaration to all of these books that needs to be more earned but it was a nice read none the less and I liked these characters through out the whole series, all of which but Hunter's book, I bought.

    Loved this novella! After reading College Boys I knew right away I wanted the secondary character, Nathaniel, to get his own story. He is a walking stereotypical gay male. Flamboyantly “out” and everyone within 5 miles knows it. He says “girl” and “honey” alot and can sashay with the best of the drag queens. I wanted Daisy to write him a story so badly…and I was a bit vocal about it. She didn’t let me down. Nat knew early on he was gay.

He is a walking stereotypical gay male. Flamboyantly “out” and everyone within 5 miles knows it. He says “girl” and “honey” alot and can sashay with the best of the drag queens. I wanted Daisy to write him a story so badly…and I was a bit vocal about it. She didn’t let me down. Nat knew early on he was gay. He didn’t act, talk or walk like the other boys and so he figured why not just embrace what was already glaringly obvious. Though he was used to the stares and the derogatory words people muttered under their breath that didn’t mean it hurt any less. After a bad relationship Nat basically shut down his emotions. No one saw what was pinging around inside of this guy that appeared so in control of himself. The vulnerability he kept tightly leashed in fear of being hurt by another man who wasn’t prepared to deal with his personality. When he sets his sights on the President of the colleges only gay fraternity, Greg, he’s only thinking short term. A up and coming successful gay man like Greg, who can easily pass for straight, would have no need for a boyfriend that screams homosexual. Greg though has been watching Nat from afar not completely understanding his own attraction to the flamboyant fraternity pledge. He knows he wants him, but in what context? Though Greg doesn’t want to jeopardize Nat's rush to become a pledge so he keeps himself at a distance making Nat believe he has no interest. I loved the dynamics between these two. It’s a twist on opposites attract I suppose. Each with their own insecurities they bring to the table that no one can see on the surface. Both being so different and yet still so alike. Also delving into the subculture of gay men and the instances of racism and judging even by their own. Since Greg can pass for straight he’s never really had to stand up to someone while Nat has had to deal with it his entire life. As a couple I think Nat and Greg worked well. They played off each other and Daisy does a excellent job of making them fit together despite the canyon between their personalities. Once Nat lowers his shields a bit and lets Greg see his true emotions, they just clicked. I enjoyed the times when they were just together. No racism. No problems with the fraternity. Just two men who were looking for something more, and they found it in the last place they expected. Each other. They reminded me of Jack and Will from the show Will and Grace. They too were both incredible different, but who we all rooted for to get together. There was one thing that I just didn’t get. The fraternity basically calls Nat “too gay” to be a pledge thinking that reinforcing the stereotypical gay male image is a bad thing. It bugged me that Greg never really said anything to the other brothers about their views on their own community (he does stand up to a random guy in a bar but still, not the same because he didn’t know him). It bugged me even more that even after they reconsidered their opinion that Nat would agree to pledge anyway. I felt it didn’t fit his character to continue to pledge and that he should have told them to stick their pledge where the sun doesn’t shine. Why would he even want to be a part of a fraternity that didn’t want him until he got a bit of notoriety from a news article he happened to be quoted in? Great novella! I got a little teary eyed at the racism and the effect it has even on those that may not show it on the surface. I don’t read a ton of gay romance, but this series is the best of the best for me and I hope we get more on this diverse college campus. I give 4 stars to Diva and The Frat Boy by Daisy Harris!

    I am lovin' the Holsum College series! I was over the moon to see that Nathaniel was getting his own story. I loved the fun, flamboyant, over the top, larger then life Nat from College Boys, and that certainly didn't change in this book. They all say opposites attract, that couldn't be more true for Nat and Greg. Greg is the quieter out of the two, he fits in everywhere he goes, the "straight looking" gay man.

They all say opposites attract, that couldn't be more true for Nat and Greg. Greg is the quieter out of the two, he fits in everywhere he goes, the "straight looking" gay man. While Nat is loud, proud, and out there, he could never pass as a straight guy. He has a tenancy to make a lot of people uncomfortable, there is no other way for him to be, which is the reason he isn't widely accepted by his peers. Everything is a "hook up" for Nat, he is use to being discarded the next morning when they treat him like crap. Not having any expectations of a long time partner, especially not a partner like Greg. Greg, the president of Eta Xi has held a torch for Nat for months, but doesn't act on it while Nat was a pledge and the frat was considering him, he wants Nat to want him, not just because he thought it could help him get into Eta Xi. When the decision is made, there is no longer anything standing in Greg's way. This book shows the struggles they both have. Nat has a hard time with accepting that maybe Greg really does want him, for more then meaningless sex. And at times Greg has a hard time with how "flaming" Nat is. In a way, this book is not only about how opposites attract, a love story, a hot erotic book. Its about acceptance of ones self. I love that Daisy gave us a little snippet of a few years later <3 And now I am off to eagerly start book 3 For more reviews, news and giveaways, check out Saucy Reviews on Kinky Korner at; Blog | Facebook | Twitter | Pinterest | Instagram

    So, I totally adored the first book in this series, and was delighted to find out how many books had been added to it since I'd last checked. This book was very nearly as fun as the first one, which is high praise indeed!

I LOVED that we got to see beneath the surface of that persona in this book. Nathaniel's vulnerability and his ultimate acceptance of himself and his circumstances made him one of my favorite characters I've met recently. This is only my second of Ms. Harris's books, but I'm impressed by the depth and realness she's able to give her characters--without making the story seem heavy. There only thing I didn't like so much was how Greg treated Nathaniel in the coffee shop, and that he never actually apologized. (view spoiler)[For Greg to try to change Nathaniel just so grumpy homophobe guy wouldn't be uncomfortable made ME feel betrayed. And as glad as I was that they got back together, and that Greg ultimately recognized and accepted that that's just how Nathaniel is, I didn't buy the revenge sex as an apology. It seemed like a terrible way for Nathaniel to get to top for the first time, and also seemed to make Greg feel like an actual apology wasn't necessary. (hide spoiler)] Since that's honestly the only thing I didn't love about the book, and I just totally ADORED Nathaniel, I have to rate this 4 stars. Great good fun, and I can't wait to continue the series!

    My Review: We met Nathaniel in book #1, College Boys, and I really loved the glimpses that we saw of the real him in that book. Nat is flamboyant and knows it....a lot of the time, he embraces that. On the opposite side of him is Greg. He's sedate and serious, plans to be a lawyer, and doesn't really understand guys like Nat, although he absolutely is gay too. He's just never understood why someone would choose to behave that way, not really realizing that it's not always a choice.

He's just never understood why someone would choose to behave that way, not really realizing that it's not always a choice. These two are irresistibly drawn to each other although neither one really understands the other or why that person chooses to hang out with them. They both underestimate their appeal to each other and that was really sweet, while at the same time, was probably the largest problem with this book. Even though the book ends well, I was never sure they truly understood each other, even though they most definitely loved each other. I enjoyed this story, especially the glimpses of Peter and Chris from the first book. I did like that the epilogue was 3 years into the future...I love me a GOOD HEA! The fact that it was so far into the future let me believe that they truly are good together and continue to grow together. I needed that kind of reassurance for this couple. I definitely continue to enjoy this series!

    books are love

    These two are such opposites it cracks me up. Nathaniel is loud in all ways and flamboyant whereas Greg is uptight and stuffy. He isn't one who shows his emotions well. Well except when it comes to Nathaniel. Nathaniel is the one he wants. The one who has his heart flutter and there is no way he can stop it. Nathaniel though doesn't think anyone like Greg could possibly like him and that he can be good enough for him. So sad to see such a gregarious guy like Nathaniel think that way.

Greg though does not give up. Nope not in his vocabulary thank heavens for that. Although not as sweet as Peter and Chris (my absolute favourite in this series I must say) they are fun to watch. A story of how one person's tenacity to show another he is worthy and is loved helps another through his insecurities and feel more confident in who he is. A fun loving read.

    After a very promising introduction of both Nat and Greg in College Boys, I found this book a let-down. I don't know why, but these guys didn't seem like the ones we got a glimpse of in book one. Greg was a blushing mess and the dominant side of him that had been hinted at barely made an appearance. Nat did remain more consistent but sadly his bubbly side seemed MIA. The romance aspect was okay, the guys were great together, but I'm not sure what exactly happened between them.

All of the delicious possibilities of confrontation were underused. The sex scenes were hot and the lovely epilogue deserves bonus points.

    This story didn't feel as complete as its predecessor ...
