★ Review ☆ My Fair Dork, Men of Holsum College # 8, Daisy Harris

5KH

Book 8, My Fair Dork. 134pg ebook


” ‘Aren’t gay guys supposed to be all stylish and hip?” Owen smiled as he said it – making it sound like he was flirting, or at least teasing.
Harold frowned. “Of course. And we all have lisps and tiny dogs we spoil.’ “

And the end is here *sad face*
4.5 kinky heels here, the ending was too rushed for me.
 
Let’s meet Harold, the dorky, lovable and shy gay freshman who is hiding a HUGE secret;he is hung like a horse, no seriously, he is Huge. 
So big in fact that it has left Harold quiet self-conscious and he believes he is doomed to only ever living the life of a bottom.
He has a lot of insecurities, which stem from a life or torment during his high school years, that he is sure will spill over into his College years, so he hides away in his over-sized baggy clothes hoping no one notices him. Well that’s until his crush, Owen, walks in on him in the shower.
 
 
Owen is yet another athlete. The gorgeous jock who has a heart, who is admired by everyone and who is rarely, if ever, is told No. 
Owen is Bi-sexual, and very much in the closet about that. A few years earlier, After fooling around and masturbating with a few boys, he came out to his family about liking boys, but after they made a huge deal of it, he jumped right back into that closet and locked the doors behind him, playing the straight card from that day on.
When he stumbled upon Harold and his secret in the showers, Owen is left wanting to get up close and personal with that mammoth and takes on the task of befriending Harold and originally getting him a girl.  
 
Owen is a little surprised to learn that Harold is gay, but continues to hang out and even gives him a little makeover to get him out of those baggy clothes and into something more fitting. 
Which is where things take an interesting turn. Flirting banter and light brushes against Harold’s mammoth is where things turn from friendship into something more, something that Owen tries to deny for most of the book.
 
Watching these two young men struggle with their insecurities, and with their self-image is precious. This cuts into how some view their reputations and opinions from others higher than the feelings of those they love.
It’s a wonderful journey watching them both mature and turn into the men they were always meant to be with
 touching heartfelt moments and some heartbreaking ones as well, but they are well balanced with the fun and excitement. 
 
“But what about the sex?” I hear you all asking, well just like normal Daisy delivers blood boiling, heart racing, sweaty mess of sex to keep us all happy. 
We even have some risky public scenes here. 
 
The ending for me seemed a little rushed, and I would have loved to have had a little more time with these two. We get some appearances from others from previous books and even a little from some new guys who could possibly make the 9th book? *hint hint Mr. Harris 😉 *
 
Now while I am devastated that this truly is the end, there is a little light at the end of the tunnel, there is more from Daisy Harris. check out Daisy’s links (bottom of every review plus on the home page) for her other series, as well as her HOT Holsum College Tumblr blog (18+ ONLY)

★ Review ☆ Genius and the Jock, Men of Holsum College # 7, Daisy Harris

5KH
Book 7, Genius and the Jock. 131pg ebook

“Show up with beer and burgers, be all domestic and shit. Make the guys think you’re cock docked.”

“Cock docked?” Griffin blinked at Noah through the water in his eyes, “What does that even mean?”

Noah Just laughed, the sound of it echoed off the damp walls. “You need to spend more time on the Internet, man.”  

4.5 for this one even though I would have to say this is my favorite. I just thought it could have been a little …. more.
 
The book starts three years earlier with Raj, the nerdy science type guy who takes on working as the towel boy in the locker room his freshman year. He finds it a challenge with all those sweaty naked bodies, especially Griff, the “tank” of the football team who gives him a hard time. 
Griff, your typical looking big and buff linebacker notices Raj’s eyes on him and is seemingly confused with how it makes him feel.
Things heat up in the locker room with a 
blowjob that not only leaves them to never speak again but also leaves them both struggling with their feelings.
 
Three years later…..
Griff is such a lovable guy, he is the complete opposite of what you would think for a jock, he has come a long way since that fateful first time. He takes on a job as the building security in the same lab that Raj is doing his research in. 
Raj is very quiet and has thrown himself into his work, leaving no time to make real friends, besides Cal and his boyfriend Tyler (Bossy and the Brat.)
 
Neither men have forgotten their first encounter. while Griff has longed to be with Raj again, Raj has hated him for what happened. Or he thought he did. 
As the night’s pass, Griffin is determined at convincing Raj that he has changed and wants another chance with him. Raj is just as determined, but at keeping his distance from Griffin.
It doesn’t take long for their friendship to blossom and move further.
 
The problem is they are both in the closet, and Raj most of all doesn’t know if he can or wants to be out.
 
It moves into the sex fairly quickly, and yes I know I have said this every review, the sex NEVER disappoints.  Watching them learn about each other’s needs, Raj’s dominance even while bottoming and Griffins loving gentleness, created some very hot and raw scenes.
 
Things go pear-shaped when one of Griffin’s teammates is a jerk to Raj, pushing things into perspective for Griffin, that he wants a proper relationship with Raj, where the world knows.
And this is where My problem is, and the reason for losing half a Kinky Heel. It was too rushed.
The “coming out” scenes for Griffin were really just a brief mentioning and then it was all over. 
I would have loved to have known how things played out in some detail.
As always though, it’s an HEA for these two college honeys.
 
I’m dreading the next book, as I know it’s my last time at Holsum College *sad face*

★ Review ☆ Pride and Politics, Men of Holsum College # 6, Daisy Harris

5KH
Book 6, Pride and Politics. 145pg ebook
 
“Come on, already. I don’t have all day.” Hunter smirked. “I want to see how pretty your cock looks when it comes.”
 
I was pleasantly surprised with how much I ended enjoying this book and gave it a 4.5 rating.
I didn’t like Hunter Ford in any of the other books he made an appearance in, however, in this story, you finally understand what Hunter’s problem is and sheds some light onto why he is such a jerk, for better words.
 
Upon starting this book, Hunter comes across as your typical arrogant rich kid who uses his money and good looks to take whatever he pleases with no regards for anyone else’s feelings. In this book you will learn the secret that has made this hunk as icy cold as he is.
 
Hunter is constantly under pressure with the expectations of his family and always being in the public eye, so it’s no surprise that he rebels and acts out with his drinking, out of control behavior, and his long list of reckless random sex.
His Uncle has an upcoming Vice Presidential campaign and has hired an Image consultant, Steve, to keep him in line. He instantly doesn’t like him or the situation but as time passes, he warms up to his new “handler.”
When he is face to face with his haunting past, Hunter leans on Steve, realizing he is the only person that he can trust and exposes the secrets of why he is the callous man he is. setting the path for Hunter to becoming the man he wants to be, a better man, with Steve at his side.
Steve, the older of the two and a lot more mature, isn’t too pleased with his current position of being Hunter’s babysitter of sorts. He took the job on because he is in need of the money to support his sister in getting her through college.
From the get go, Steve makes it clear that he will not put up with any of Hunters crap, and that he means business. 
It doesn’t take too long for his perception of Hunter to change and he finds himself falling for him as Hunter’s vulnerability comes to the surface and Steve’s fierce protectiveness comes into play.
 
Now just because this does not take place at Holsum College, don’t think that the sex has changed. Fumbling too hard and roughness, on his knees mind-blowing blow-jobs in an alley and gagged dominating limo sex, these two will leave you hot and flustered in no time.
 
It seems Ms. Harris has a taste for the BDSM, and once again we have some BDSM elements in this story (which I am very grateful for) giving it that extra edge and sauciness.
Watching these two dominating men take control of their new found lives and yes their love for each other is a beautiful journey.

★ Review ☆ Bossy and the Brat, Men of Holsum College # 5, Daisy Harris

4KH
Book 5, Bossy and the Brat. 126pg ebook

 

“Look at you being all heteroflexible.”

Now I totally am crushing on Daisy Harris, but this one just wasn’t as good as her others for me, it’s a 3.5.
That’s not to say it was bad, it just…. I guess it’s just that things weren’t totally believable in this story.
Ok, so we have Cal, the 21-year-old “straight” virgin who happens to be the RA of the dorm, who also has a girlfriend from back home that he is mean to marry, but is secretly head over heels for Tyler. 
Tyler, the super fun loving 18-year-old who is always throwing his heart to others who treat him as nothing more than a hookup, that may be because he is a little on the needy side. Ok, a lot needy.
After Cal and his girlfriend separate things move forward with him and Tyler pretty fast, especially once Tyler gets the idea in his head that maybe Cal is more than just a little interested.
Tyler drives head first into the unknown with Cal, who doesn’t take long in giving into what he truly wants. 
Things start out as simple flirting but move’s extremely quick into some steamy. 
Cal is focused on not breaking the rules of not dating a freshman due to him being the RA, well he Was the RA, so isn’t ready to be public, and keeps Tyler at arm’s length, keeping half of the relationship via text messages.
And boy are they some sexy and down right hot messages.
Now, this is where the hard to grasp bit comes into play, Cal jumps right into light kink in the form of a little tying and a lot of Dominance, this kind of threw me, Cal is meant to be a very inexperienced virgin, who is only now coming out about being gay, well to himself and Ty. Adding the Dom element to it was just a little too much for me, especially when he wasn’t a Dom with his girlfriend, in fact, she comes across as the one in charge there.
One thing you can always count on at Holsum?  The Sex and the teasing men, and there is no exception here.
The build up is quite hot, to say the least, and the sex… so worth the wait.
Just like the others, its more of a short story, a very easy going, sweet, sensual, funny and damn hot story with a hint of kink.
Moving on to the next in the series, Holsum, I’m here to stay 🙂

★ Review ☆ Player and the Prude, Men of Holsum College # 4, Daisy Harris

4KH
Book 4, Player and the Prude. 120pg ebook

 

“He wanted to love Brooks, to be loved in return. Not treat him like a filthy slut — the way his torrid imagination wanted.”

Brooks starts off the popular smart-ass guy, highly experienced in the sex department and someone who has it all, including his own problems. His mother is pushy, pushing a relationship with Hunter, to secure a fast track in climbing higher in society.

Matt is quiet and withdrawn, with no experience in the sex department. Being brought up in a very religious home, he is having a hard time coming to terms with thoughts in his head of dominance over another male.

What starts out as a bet between Brooks and Hunter quickly turns into more.
The progression of Matt and Brooks relationship is amazing.

It doesn’t jump right into being in love or having sex, they take their time, they grow together, over coming their problems.

The sex in this book is unlike the other 3 books. It hot, heavy, hard, rough animalistic kinky sex!

When I started this and seen that Brooks was the main, i’ll admit, I wasn’t too thrilled.
He came across like a complete jerk in book 3.

I was pleasantly surprised at how much my opinion changed about him.

Can not wait to start the 5th book 🙂

★ Review ☆ Townie and the Twink, Men of Holsum College # 3, Daisy Harris

4KH
Book 3, Townie and the Twink. 122pg ebook

 

“A lot of people say everyone is bi to some extent.” Chris lip curled into a smile. “I’m pretty sure that’s true in college.”

Gabe and Nick’s story is a beautiful one, heartbreaking at times.
Gabe can see that Nick is gay, sadly Nick doesn’t know or accept that.
This story is mainly about Nick’s self-discovery. He is in some serious denial about his sexuality.
Gabe gently introduces Nick to the side of himself that he has been denying.
During it all, Nick tends put his feelings down to “not in a gay way”.
It’s heartbreaking watching this story unfold and watching Gabe fall head over heels for Nick, all while Nick remains in denial about his sexuality and his feeling for both his best friend and Gabe.
When Nick FINALLY realizes that he wants to be with Gabe, the story takes a lighter, loving approach.
The sex scenes… WOW!
This story is quite realistic, along with all of Daisy’s others, you can see this happening in everyday life.

 

I can not get enough of this series, On to the next in Holsum College 🙂

★ Review ☆ Diva and the Frat Boy, Men of Holsum College # 2, Daisy Harris

4KH
Book 2, Diva and the Frat Boy. 198pg ebook

 

“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.”

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. 
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

★ Review ☆ College Boys, Men of Holsum College # 1, Daisy Harris

5KH
Book 1, College Boys. 115pg ebook.

“If this was their only time together, Peter wanted to make sure Chris would never forget.” 

This is my first Daisy experience, a very pleasurable experience.
This book is sweet, daring, awkward and incredibly hot!
You have spunky soccer player Chris.
His mother recently passed, and he wanted some time alone, so moves into a single room on campus.
He and his next door neighbor have a bit of “tent” history, and in no time take up a through-the-walls relationship.
Then there’s yummy Peter, the out there gay student who’s been crushing on the straight kid for months.
When Chris moves in next door things heat up through the paper thin wall that they can hear every word, movement, and moan.
What starts out as some harness banter leads to masturbating together between the wall, which moves Chris to question his sexuality.
The sex scenes…. In one word, incredible!
They were sweet, raw, a combination of inexperience and nervousness, passion and damn hot!
I love the through the wall scenes, they are quite unique.
I love both the characters and was praying things would work for them from the start.
I’m only slightly disappointed that we don’t find out what happened when they left campus for the summer when Chris came out.
However, I am hoping to have some little appearances from them in the coming books.
I most certainly enjoyed my time at Holsum College, and have every intention on sticking around to read the rest.
