Review: Chris Fischer knew that coming to Holsum College would mean new experiences – he was miles from home and knew no one when he first arrived. And it didn’t take long: he had a completely new experience with Peter Cohen during his orientation weekend (nothing sexual, and it surely didn’t make him gay). Other things in his life allowed him to forget about it until he found himself moving in next door to the guy he barely knew. The wall between them being paper-thin, Chris quickly learned he was going to get to know Peter better than he had expected – and would get to know more about himself than he ever imagined.
The novella is a relatively quick and easy read, flowing very well from chapter to chapter. I had no trouble connecting with the characters – the situations, dialogue, and storytelling helped make them very easy to relate to. Avoiding some of the cliches of M/M stories set in college, I found College Boys to be unique, intriguing, and one of the best gay erotica I’ve read in some time.
