    I received a copy of this book from Netgallery in exchange for an honest review.

    I will be the first to admit that M/M romance is not a genre that I read on a regular basis. After several recommendations from fellow book lovers I figured why not. I was not disappointed with this one. Daisy Harris did a wonderful job conveying the difficulties of finding yourself. On the problems that arise when your sexual orientation might not be what you assumed it was and how it affects other relationships in your life.

    Chris Fischer is trying to get his life together. After losing his mother to cancer he is confused about her loss and just wants to be alone so he can stop pretending to all his friends that everything is fine. He decides the best way to do this is to move into a single room where he can just be himself. He moves into the room next to Peter Cohen, an openly gay guy who he had met several months before during a camping trip.

    Peter still remembers his meeting with Chris. Knowing that he is straight doesn't stop him from imagining what he wants to do with and to him. He realizes that it is only a one-sided attration and he's ok with that. Until suddenly it seems like maybe its not one sided at all.

    The mixed signals they sent each other were entertaining and sweet at that same time. There were some points where I laughed aloud at things that Chris and Peter did or said. I really enjoyed the interaction between the two of them. I really liked that even though there was an attraction (even unknowingly) between the two of them from the beginning that the author took her time to develop it throughout the story line vs an instant wham bam thank you mam.

    I am looking forward to reading more books by Daisy Harris and seeing where this series goes.

    I really enjoyed this story!  I loved the main two characters in the novella, and thought that the feelings
    between the two of them built naturally.  The way they interacted with each other was very sweet.  So often I
    n these types of stories , I feel like the romance is forced, but the progression of their love felt very real and natural.  
    I loved how Chris questioned his sexuality and explored it even through his fear of how others might react.  
    I only wish it had been longer!   Oh and did I mention the sex scenes were hot?!

      REVIEW  We have Chris Fischer the star soccer player . Chris h

    We have Chris Fischer the star soccer player . Chris has just lost his mom to lung cancer and is feeling a
    bit overwhelmed by his soccer team buddies and their constant questions so he moves out of the dorm
    house and into a new one across the way. Enter Peter Cohen he is Chris’s neighbor and the walls are
     very thin. Chris knows Peter from a campout that happened back in the summer and remembers too
    vividly what happened and how they woke up. During the next week or so Chris hears everything that
     goes on through the thin walls and is totally overwhelmed by the sexual feelings he is having. Chris
    never thought himself gay but what he feels when hearing Peter is nothing short of Excited.. 
    Peter and Chris start hanging out more and become really good friends and by the time things are
    done they are in each others beds and in each others hearts. 
    Can they get through the constant bullying expecially from Chris’s teammates?
    This is a short M/M love story !! Not overly graphic and very sweet .
