    3.5 stars A book about a guy with an enormous package who's not too happy about it. Color me intrigued! This is a story about Harold, a shy, gay, geeky guy and Owen, the popular (closeted) bi jock. Owen spots Harold in the shower one day and is immediately impressed by his euhm.. assets. But Harold has always seen it as a curse, not something to be grateful for. He is convinced no one would want such a monster. But Owen definitely wants to get up close and personal with ALL of Harold. I liked how Owe 3.5 stars A book about a guy with an enormous package who's not too happy about it. Color me intrigued!

And even though I really liked these guys I did have a problem with Owen at times. Especially when he didn’t come out, but denied everything at first and then just went with it. He should have manned up and told people the truth. Still, a sweet, but hot college story with some angst thrown in.

Gross and ruined my enjoyment of the story :( His make-under makes him look even worse than the blond guy on the cover. I was really liking the story up until Owen turned into a douche (view spoiler)[ and Owen wasn't going to talk to Harold because Owen didn't think anyone else would find Harold attractive. Then Harold gets a disgusting makeover, totally gross, IMO, but apparently everyone in this book thinks he's hot now. And now douche Owen will talk to him, since he finally isn't so hideous and isn't embarrassed to be seen with Harold. I hate when they change so drastically just to please a steaming bag of douche. Then after all of that Owen still doesn't apologize for what he did to Harold in the Alley or how he just blew him off and didn't talk to him until after the make-over. Then he still didn't work to get Harold back. Nope Harold had to complete change and do all the work. It was seriously a WTF (hide spoiler)] so yeah I was really enjoying it but not so much now at about 60%... The ending was cute and the first 60% did rock a lot so i enjoyed it overall. It is a very funny and quick read so look into it. I did NOT read any of the previous books in the serious. I could tell some of the friends probably did get together in their own book, but i was never confused or anything so you don't have to read the first 7 books to enjoy this one, but I'll probably check them out. I rarely read Siren books because i find their editing to usually be very poor. This book however was written really well. I didn't notice any editing errors while reading it. Which was a delightful surprise and made reading it a lot smoother. Oh and i was worried there would be too much sex, but all of the sex furthered the plot and wasn't just inserted to add another sex scene. And the scenes were hot so i enjoyed them.

    Owen and Harold really worked for me. I love that they seem very different but come together as friends and become a safe place for each other. I am a bit of a sucker for the "too well hung" trope and like the way it is explored in this romance. Owen is less likable than Harold but that is only until he lets himself just be. Harold gains more self assurance. The love story is realistic, touching, and hot. All good stuff.

I can’t even believe how much I adored the character of Harold Jacobs. Giant penis, insecurities, skinny butt and bad clothes, he is likeable and so very sweet. His hate/love relationship with his dick just made me laugh. There were just parts I laughed out loud and then read again. When Harold is worried about how scrawny he thinks he is: “Maybe his dick took up all the energy he ate, like a rogue parasite in a science fiction movie. It absorbed all the calories he took in and was slowly starving him to death”. Or poor Harold feeling himself getting nervous and clumsy: “Now his feet were going to team up with his tongue and his dick to destroy Harold’s life”. I mean, really! Poor baby, bodily parts just ganging up on him. While Harold’s dick definitely plays a starring role in this story, it is Harold himself who makes it endearing. Owen is a jock, one who has admitted to himself that he was bisexual, but who has put his “gay side” firmly in the past. I’m not quite sure why he so firmly did this, as his family was incredibly supportive (and funny, come on, your dad trying to discuss anal sex with you?) Owen takes on Harold as a sort of charity project, improve his looks so that Harold could have a boyfriend. It was a little odd, because you know that Owen wants Harold. It’s admitting it to himself and to others, like his sort of jerky roommate who considers Harold a geek of the highest order, that is the question Owen walks in on poor overendowed Harold in the shower and doesn’t run screaming (although at one point “Just thinking about what Harold had between his legs made Owen want to cover his ass with the nearest notebook and back slowly away.” This book made me smile, made me laugh and just made me glad to have read it. It’s light, easy and very entertaining.

Owen's attempts to get Harold to loosen up and have fun cause some problems for both of them, but Harold gets his man in the end. These two are so cute - I hope we see them in further stories in this series. We got to see Cal and Tyler and Nick and Gabe and Tank and Raj, so maybe there is hope :)

The simple plot allows space in the short novel for the characterization, humor and poignancy we’ve come to expect. Harold is endowed like a firehose, and what he’s packing becomes almost a third character in unwelcome ways for our two boys. This is as amusing as it sounds, but also frequently touching. Owen has his head inserted you-know-where for the first half, but he figures things out quick enough, with the help of some canny maneuverings by Harold. Very nice to see the wronged partner take his self-esteem into his own hands rather than waiting wistfully for his hero to get a clue. Hot, funny, adorable but never saccharine, this one is another satisfying treat.

    My second book read in this series and I loved it.

I could sit here and talk about how this is a story about one misunderstood kid going into college. A little shy, a little timid, a little inhibited about his preferences and his body. What he perceived as limitations. And it's the story about that same gangly kid getting with the man of his fantasies, the jock and handsome kid in his dorm. Yeah, I could go on about that type of relationship for a while because who doesn't want to see the geeky geek get with the jocky stud? But what I really need to tell you about is the star of the show... Let met see if I can pick a quote to describe what I'm talking about: "Owen opened his lips wide and tried to fit them over Harold's head. It didn't really fit. Owen could get the head in his mouth but not with enough room to do anything fun with it." Ahhhh yes, the star of the show and of this book was Harold's monster cock. There I said it. Damn! That thing was hanging around and laying heavy and alert throughout this whole book. It really did play a major role and I give both kuddos to Owen for taking it and Harold for learning to love it. ;) OK so back to the story. Other than the magic monster penis on the gangly dorky kid, this story was very sweet at its core. Harold already knew who he was but Owen, even, though he had some m/m experiences in his past, was not aware he was "gay". But their attraction is immediate. And they don't fight it. Well except for Harold fighting nature and trying to charm that snake between his legs into submission at times. This book was fun.... "Maybe his dick took up all the energy he ate., like a rogue parasite in a science fiction movie. It absorbed all the calories he took in and was slowly starving him to death." "Maybe his cock has joined forces with his tongue, and the two of them were plotting to take over Harold's body. Growing larger and larger, until one could touch the other." But it was also very sweet and by the end of this short story I could feel the connection between the two. Probably one of the best couples in the MOHC series by Ms Harris. Can't wait to keep reading! *ARC provided by author

In this installment we meet Harold and Owen, freshmen at Holsum College. Harold, shy and introverted, also has a physical issue; he is overly endowed in the penis; one that he truly believes will eliminate him from ever experiencing anal sex. Harold also fancies Owen, out-going, out-spoken, and apparently not out. Ms. Harris weaves together a story of a friendship, love, and denial of two very different young men; their hopes and insecurities. Harold’s character was likable and easy to get along with. His self-doubts left him shy and slightly reclusive but once they began to fade away, an approachable young man emerged. It took me a little longer to warm up to Owen. I felt Owen was smug and self-centered, even when he was helping Harold come out of his shell. Owen struggled with his own insecurities that laid the foundation for his attitude and denial, and once I realized this, I began to like him more; opening my heart to the prospect that he was just as timid in this new relationship that was forming, as Harold was. We also meet Sebastian, Harold’s roommate and Joel, friend of Bossy and the Brat, Tyler, who I can only surmise will be getting their own book. I look forward to it. Ms. Harris’s ability to articulate her perceptions of the characters left me invested in Harold and Owen and cheering for a sexual happy ending. No spoilers here, but if you are looking for an HEA and hot men, this is the book for you. reviewed by Zafira

    So, this series may not be GREAT literature, but it sure is fun to read! ;D Harold Eugene? Yep, you knew from that moment on it was going to be entertaining in one of those, No, that did NOT just happen way! Attraction is what it is and no amount of trying to change it is going to make you less gay... just ask Owen, he gave it the ol' college try and still fell hard for Harold! Ain't love grand? *grin*

    The story is cute and sweet, but a bit rushed at times. The characters felt flat though, never really becoming more than their basic stereotypes. I mean, they don't even seem to have hobbies or defining interests. I don't read a lot of college books, because the MCs problems often seem insignificant and I can't emphasize with them.

The book was still mostly fun, if one doesn't expect any meaningful plot.

As we return to Holsum College we meet Harold Jacobs. On the outside, I imagine Harold would be easy to overlook in passing. He’d always been shy and awkward with people and if that wasn’t enough, he’s very uncomfortable with the size of his penis. You see, Harold has been blessed with a very large penis. So much so that he’s embarrassed by it. He fears that his size will never allow him to experience sex with a man. So he does his best to hide it by wearing extra large clothing. That is, until Owen McKenzie happens to come into the dorm shower one night and gets more than an eyeful of Harold’s peen. Owen McKenzie is the total opposite of Harold. Popular, athletic, good looking, Owen is well known on campus. He knows he’s bi, having already had a romance with a boy as a teenager, but once he got to college he decided to focus on women, and keeps his attraction to men to himself. When he happens upon Harold in the shower, and gets a look at a very nude Harold, he just can’t get Harold or his penis out of his mind. He may be trying to play a straight man, but that doesn’t stop him from wondering what it’d be like to get his hands on Harold’s package. Though I have not read all the books in this series, I have really enjoyed the ones I have read and was admittedly very intrigued by the blurb for this book. I’d always thought that a man with a big dick would be proud and would want everyone to know about it, but it was the complete opposite for Harold. Having a large penis was almost incapacitating for him at times and made life difficult for him. So he wore clothing much too large to literally hide himself away. Owen’s character was unexpected for me. Here you have a good looking, popular guy who takes Harold under his wing under the ruse of helping him get over his shyness so he make friends and maybe find a boyfriend. He saw something in him beyond the size of his penis, though it is what drew him to Harold in the first place. It’s not long before Owen and Harold are friends themselves, though Harold wants to be much more than just friends. This was the fun part. The author uses a mix of the themes from Beauty and the Beast and the Ugly Duckling in Harold’s transformation and I loved it. At first, Owen is the beauty and he has Harold, the beast, tag along to parties to get him out and try to help him overcome his shyness. He loans him clothes and even takes him to a party at a gay fraternity. Even when Owen’s friends give him a hard time for hanging with a loser like Harold, Owen stands up for him. He’s truly a good friend to Harold until one night when things go a little too far with them and Owen does begin to worry about his secret coming out. He’s so worried, he stops hanging out with Harold. This is when the Ugly Duckling becomes a swan and I have to admit, I absolutely loved this part. Harold is shocked when Owen blows him off and he really doesn’t understand why. He thought things were good and moving forward, so he’s confused and angry. He decides that it’s time he takes matters into his own hands and he does, brilliantly. There are many humorous moments in this story, but they do not over shadow the serious notes here. In spite of what may have been seen as Owen’s betrayal of Harold, in the end it was Owen’s friendship that gave Harold the courage to take the step he did in order to make the changes necessary to give him the confidence to fight for what he wanted. The author does a great job of changing the relationship from friends to a romantic one. This is a short story, easily read in one sitting that will make you laugh and cry and these characters will definitely entertain you!

Harold has an embarrassing secret. It’s a secret that has haunted him for years, leaving him self-conscious and unable to unveil his body in public; Harold has a very large penis. Now some men may think that this is something to be proud of, to flaunt and use to their advantage. Not Harold. The last thing he wants is for anyone for him to know his secret which is why he is mortified when his current crush walks in on him in the shower. He wants to run and hide but he instead he stays and lets him discover his secret. Owen can’t believe that Harold the dork is hiding something that spectacular under his trousers. Always aware that he is was, Owen has fought to appear straight for years. Although a few temptations have crossed his path, nobody has tested his resolve more than Harold; well his package anyway. He tries to simply by his friend, getting him a makeover and introducing him around campus, but it simply doesn’t tamper his lust. Soon they find themselves figuring out the logistics of having a sexual relationship when one of them is packing an organ would have sent weaker men running. But Owen is firmly in the closet and Harold has spent years hiding in the shadows; can they really have something that lasts? Hands up ladies, who has read a romance recently and inwardly winced and/or crossed their legs after a particularly graphic description of the Hero’s mammoth shlong? Hats off to Daisy Harris because she addressed all of my concerns about the logistics of a sexual relationship with this problem without being overly graphic! In fact the handling of the situation was incredibly funny and endearing... I loved the idea of all the blood/energy in his body going to power his giant dong. I absolutely adored Harold. I can relate to having body issues that you feel the need to cover, but his problem was one which prevented him from forming relationships. He was a loner by default because he avoided situations with lots of people, wore over large clothing and was generally incredibly shy. My heart bled for him and I wanted him to get someone to love him as he was. When Owen came along, he seemed genuinely happy and started to experiment with new looks, situations and friends. Yes, I understand the “changing for a man” trope is a controversial one, but I don’t feel that he did anything FOR Owen. Owen just gave him the confidence to try them out and never pushed him to keep something that he didn’t like. Some of the makeover was done to simply show Owen what he could have....that was realistic enough for me! Owen got massive kudos from me for his acceptance of Harold. Yes, it took him a little while to get used to being attracted to him, but Owen has been closeted for years and Harold is very openly gay. I liked Owen but he didn’t shine as much as an individual character as Harold; he worked incredibly well in couple scenes though. I loved the way he was willing to try to make Harold be happy with all of his parts and the sex scenes were both incredibly hot and incredibly endearing. I wanted them to be together, but I knew that Harold deserved more than a secret relationship with a closeted bi man. Overall, this book was hot, sweet and incredibly funny. I wanted this HEA after to happen, wanted Harold to stick on a pair of tight jeans and be loud and proud about his giant penis; I read it in one sitting, devouring every page. I love this series and this is a fantastic addition. Although it could be a standalone, I think that you need to know the previous couples mentioned to appreciate their involvement.

    Its been a while since I gave much thought to what it was like to be a young college student and all that entailed, but this story took me back to those days. Not that I was a kid struggling and experimenting with my sexual orientation like Owen nor was I like Harold who had a physical aspect to my person that left me feeling vulnerable.

This was my first bo Its been a while since I gave much thought to what it was like to be a young college student and all that entailed, but this story took me back to those days.

I was just an average joe, but I did have friends that could have been Harold or Owen and we did participate in some of the same activities. This was my first book that I've read in the series although this is book eight. I had no trouble reading it out of order. I'm assuming the other couples I met in the story were the main characters in their own stories earlier in the series. The story is amusing, cute, and a little sad all wrapped up in one. Poor Harold is a shy, bumbling, insecure guy not just because of his clumsy, tall skinny body and with a face that just healed from a bad case of acne, but because he is more than well endowed in the manhood department. His greatest hope is to slide through college without drawing undue attention to himself. But that is just not to be because the guy he has a secret crush on has noticed him. Owen is the all-around great guy that everyone likes and who is good at anything he puts his hand to. He notices shy, awkward Harold and sympathizes with him because Owen's older sister was the same way. He determines to take Harold under his wing and help him even while trying to suppress a stirring that he feels when he gets a good look at Harold's impressive man bits and learns that Harold is gay. Owen has a secret penchant that he has hidden since Jr. High. He's bi-sexual, but allows everyone to believe that he's only into girls to keep up his image and popularity. When Owen takes Harold under his wing, things begin to radically change for both of them. Both young men are put on the spot and must make decisions that will affect their happiness, but at the same time its quite obvious that they are both just fumbling in the dark and trying to find their way. I confess that I was vastly amused at the idea that a story seemed- on the surface- to revolve around a guy's extra-large penis. And on one level, I was chuckling even though I felt sorry for poor Harold. But fortunately, the plot was much more than that. It included a maturing journey for both guys in this coming of age story that brought them from thinking only of themselves to the end when they were all about what was good for each other no longer needing society's approval for what would make them happy. In between serious moments, there are a lot of college parties, embarrassing and awkward scenes, friend therapy and experiments in bed to keep it fun. It took some talent on the author's part, but the characters were written in such a way that they were likeable even when they were still working through their own flaws. I took awhile to warm up to Owen, but that was because I wasn't sure if he was ever going to grow up. He did and owned up to his mistakes. Harold was needy, but he started to see his own self-worth after a time. But the character that took my fancy was Harold's friend Seb. He was so cranky, but loyal and I just loved seeing what happened to him at that last party scene hinting that he might be getting his own turn for some fun. I was busting out laughing when Harold was 'helping' Seb get rid of his unibrow with a wax job (I winced for the poor guy). It was fun finding a new author and series to enjoy. This would appeal to those who like fun stories with a little depth involving a couple of young guys still trying to figure things out.

    My Fair Dork seamlessly fits into the collegiate world Ms. Harris has gotten so good at conveying through her previous seven books in the Men of Holsum College series.

In this sweetly sexy story of opposites attracting, socially awkward and ugly duckling Harold becomes popular jock Owen's pet project and before they know it their relationship evolves into something more. Harold is an utterly adorable character whose sweet nature, shyness, and struggle to take what he wanted and deserved completely won me over. He's felt undeserving his whole life and because of his negative body images has kept himself hidden under baggy clothes and seeing him come into his own and become a social butterfly was inspiring and put a smile on my face. Once he completely transforms his looks it's he who is now the popular one and I enjoyed seeing a jealous Owen try to win Harold back. Owen has denied his true orientation forever for fear of what his social circle might think. His helping Howard starts out innocently enough but once he gets to know the real Harold beneath the ugly clothes and bad hair he's completely drawn to him. Their relationship progresses in a natural and increasingly steamy rate that is immensely satisfying and shows a quietly romantic bond behind closed doors. In public though Owen continues to struggle until a grand gesture at the end wins all of us over and gives us a HEA wrapped up in a nice bow. The sexual interactions between Harold and Owen start off a bit awkward and frantic but ultimately evolve into something more mature and assured. I loved seeing them together and Owen's complete acceptance of Harold gave me great hope for their future together. The secondary characters were equally appealing and it was nice seeing characters from previous books interact with new characters seamlessly. Collegiate life is nicely presented and conveys new students uncertainties realistically in this book that can be read on its own but will be more richly rewarding in a marathon reading of the entire series. Ms. Harris continues her streak of combining steamy and emotional encounters with likable characters and I highly recommend her to those wanting an entertaining and satisfying m/m read.

    3/5 I love The Men of Holsum College. They’re light, fun reads and generally they’re pretty hot too. These books are a guilty pleasure for me and I won’t even try to justify them. I like them dammit! That being said, this one wasn’t my favorite. I laughed when I first read the blurb. The big issue in this book is that Harold has a giant cock, which he hates. He was ridiculed for it throughout high school and is very self-concious about it. He knows he is 100% gay but has never even kissed another 3/5 I love The Men of Holsum College. They’re light, fun reads and generally they’re pretty hot too. These books are a guilty pleasure for me and I won’t even try to justify them. I like them dammit! That being said, this one wasn’t my favorite. I laughed when I first read the blurb. The big issue in this book is that Harold has a giant cock, which he hates. He was ridiculed for it throughout high school and is very self-concious about it. He knows he is 100% gay but has never even kissed another guy. He knows no man in his right mind would ever choose someone as large as him. He can’t imagine any guy wanting a dork with a giant penis, especially not the hot guy down the hall. Owen knows he likes guys. It’s just that he has never wanted one enough to make the social consequences worth it. At least that’s the case until he meets Harold. Yes, the giant penis is what grabs his attention at first but he also really likes the guy it’s attached to. The story wasn’t quite as frivolous as I expected. I could understand that entering into a relationship with Harold would be a big step for Owen. I also got why Harold had some reservations about being with Owen. He knew Owen might one day regret his decision to be with Harold. Owen would be giving up a large part of the sexaul opportunities most gay men expect and enjoy. I liked Harold and Owen. I could see that they genuinely wanted to be together, but there was good reason to be worried for both of them. Those obstacles to their relationship created enough angst for me. I did not need the misunderstanding and uncertainty they had later on in the book. I lost some interest while that was going on. It’s not a long book, so that wasn’t too much of an issue. The bottom line for is that I wasn’t as pulled into this book as much as I usually am. It’s a good story and an enjoyable read, just not as good as some of the previous books in the series.

    This review was originally written for The Romance Reviews and can also be found there. New installment of the Holsum College series brings us plenty of humor, cute guys and the already familiar hotness quality this author writes in spades. Harold is an extremely shy student whose life has been severely influenced by his physical appearance. Unlike most stories where the 'strange' factor is focused on scars, weight or something equally usual, Harold's problem is in his pants, and it's anything but This review was originally written for The Romance Reviews and can also be found there. New installment of the Holsum College series brings us plenty of humor, cute guys and the already familiar hotness quality this author writes in spades. Harold is an extremely shy student whose life has been severely influenced by his physical appearance. Unlike most stories where the 'strange' factor is focused on scars, weight or something equally usual, Harold's problem is in his pants, and it's anything but small. Dressing to hide his size, he's more of a ghost in the halls than someone real, that is until Owen sees him showering one night and decides to help Harold come out of his shell. The beginning of this story had me laughing so hard I had tears in my eyes. It was truly brilliant and made me love this story instantly. Daisy Harris did a great job in showing us just how insecure someone can be and how it can influence his life. I loved Harold and his innocent need to prove himself over and over again. He is one of those characters who deserve only the best and you want that for them from the first page. Now Owen was not my kind of character. He was too flimsy, indecisive and nowhere near good enough for Harold. In fact, that was what I kept thinking the whole while – that Harold deserves better. I thought their story moved too quickly and there wasn't enough detail to show us why Owen was the right guy for Harold and how he helped him be okay with his size. Nonetheless, this is a great addition to the series. It will make you laugh, squirm and blush for all the right reasons and you will come out of it satisfied. I warmly recommend it.

    Size really does matter. But bigger isn't always better. No one understands that more than Harold. There's really no gentle way to say it. His dick is really, really big. So big, in fact, that it has been a constant source of embarrassment. It's also, however, what drew Owen's attention in the dorm shower room. Owen has always known he was bisexual. But it has always been easier to just act on his attraction to girls. After his eyeful of Harold's goods in the shower, though, he can't stop thinkin Size really does matter. But bigger isn't always better. No one understands that more than Harold. There's really no gentle way to say it. His dick is really, really big. So big, in fact, that it has been a constant source of embarrassment. It's also, however, what drew Owen's attention in the dorm shower room. Owen has always known he was bisexual. But it has always been easier to just act on his attraction to girls. After his eyeful of Harold's goods in the shower, though, he can't stop thinking about the awkward and somewhat dorky kid from England. He decides to focus his energies on helping Harold find a bit of a cool-factor. It doesn't take long for Owen's well-meaning experiment to cross the line of friendship. And once they begin to get physical, Owen must decide whether Harold is worth outing himself on campus. I can't say this was my favorite among the Holsum College books, but it's pretty in keeping with the rest of the series. It has the same strengths: a sweet coming of age gay love story and smoking hot sex. It also has the same weaknesses: a relationship that develops at lightening speed with conflict resolution that is just as fast --plus the L-word way, way too soon. Sadly, that's my biggest romance peeve, so it drives me nuts over and over again. I keep reading, though. Because the characters are sympathetic and the love stories are easy to root for. Oh yeah, and the sex is super-good. (*sigh*) If only these guys could wait more than two weeks to pick out matching china patterns... Rating: B- *ARC provided by author for review

    I really enjoyed Harold and Owen's story in My Fair Dork. It was a story about acceptance and liking who you are inside and out and finding love. These two are complete opposites but do have something in common; they have trouble accepting their "true" self. Harold is self-conscious about his physical attributes though he is fine with being openly gay. Owen is a popular quarterback but has problem acknowledging he's gay or at least bisexual. They are not 100% comfortable in their own skin and to I really enjoyed Harold and Owen's story in My Fair Dork.

They are not 100% comfortable in their own skin and together they help each other overcome this. Harold and Owen become friends and their attraction to each other is evident from the beginning. Owen gives Harold a makeover in order to help him feel better about his body and Harold's openness about being gay and intimate moments helps Owen break down some of his barriers and admit his growing feelings for another man. I liked that Owen kept wanting to spend more time with Harold than his "popular" friends and not really caring what they thought. Their sex scenes were hot and creative that had me wanting more. I also liked Harold's thoughtfulness towards Owen, who was still somewhat scared of their physical relationship and that endeared him to me even more and I had already loved him. They were fun, lovable characters you wanted to root for as you read the book. Another great book in this series.

Harold is overly endowed and I think his insecurities about his package was handled really well. It wasn't a schtick used to make fun of him. Even though I'm not male or gay, I felt that the sex scenes and the logistics of having gay sex with Harold's enormous package felt realistic and dealt in a sensitive and realistic way. My Fair Dork is the 8th book in the series but can be read as a stand alone. I felt that overall, the characters were likable and the story was cute and sexy. I will definitely go back and read the other books in this series.

    I read this one right after Genius and the Jock and liked it alot. I really think that Daisy Harris has improved with this series, which had a strong start but started to lose its way somewhere around the midle. Again the stroy was romance-centric and the characters were likeable, fell for each other fast and all the road blocks were cleared very quickly. All in all Men of Holsum College as a series is for those who like short, hot reads with a happy ending.
