I recently found a new writer through the #amwriting hashtag on twitter and was lucky that she was releasing a new book only days after. I got my hands on a copy and LOVED it!
This is what Bookstrand says about the book:
[Siren Classic ManLove: Erotic Alternative Romance, M/M, HEA]
When soccer star Chris Fischer moves next door to an openly gay classmate, he doesn’t realize the wall between their rooms will be so thin he’ll hear his neighbor’s every move. But soon he and Peter become friends, and Chris is intrigued—imagining what happens on the other side of the wall.
Active on the Queer Student Council, Peter Cohen wishes he wasn’t so damn hot for his straight neighbor. He can’t tell if Chris is flirting or in denial or what, but Chris’s innocent overtures lure Peter into flirtation that throws his world into chaos. Peter doesn’t want to date a closet case, but he desperately, passionately wants Chris.
Soon Chris must choose whether to run away from his new feelings or embrace a relationship with the guy he loves. And Peter must decide if he can give his heart to a guy who hasn’t yet figured it all out.
A Siren Erotic Romance
I’m always slightly picky when it comes to m/m books since not all women are able to write believable male characters. Daisy Harris does though, she knows how to write a whole array of characters and makes them all believable. She has been the best new m/m writer I have found in the past couple of months.
The story deals with Chris who is straight, but maybe not as straight as he thinks. He plays down his attraction to Peter, his next door neighbour, as a “normal reaction to someone who is good looking”.
Peter is gay, out of the closet and totally hot for Chris, but he doesn’t want to date a closet case (honestly, would anyone? O.o).
As the two boys are trying to figure out the attraction they have to each other and where they stand within the world they know they find that even trying out new things is very very hot!
Reason it is 4 stars and not 5 is mostly that I found that the narrations of both characters were slightly too alike and would change too often. I would have liked longer pieces of each character at a time.
PS, I will soon be writing a blogpost about writers and gay characters, in which I will be mentioning some of my favourite writers. Please look forward to that!
