Reviewed by JenThis was another favorite for me in the Holsum College series. It features two closeted male leads who come to accept who they are through their growing affection for one another.
Griffin and Raj first came together three years ago, though no one could call in an auspicious beginning. Griff was a burly linebacker who couldn't ignore the eyes of the towel-boy who always seemed to be watching him. Unsure how to deal with the attraction, Griff cornered Raj with his big body and gave him a blow job neither one of them would ever forget. Raj was so rattled by the experience, he quit his job and never came back.
Now Griffen is night watchman for the building that houses Raj's lab. He's grown a lot since the locker-room incident and wants another chance with Raj. The thing is, Raj is wary of him and afraid to acknowledge his homosexuality. Griffen sets out to show him he has become a better man. He slowly works his way into a friendship and, eventually, something more.
Griffin is a really likeable guy. He's such a gentle giant. It's really cool how Daisy Harris flips the obvious roles for the two main characters, both in disposition and in the bedroom as well.
And speaking of the bedroom... That is one element of this series that never disappoints. The sex is always hot without ever feeling over-the-top. Really good stuff.
Sometimes I wonder if there are any straight guys left at Holsum College. But then again, with sex like this... who cares?
