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.

College Boys by author Daisy Harris is the first book in the Holsum College series.  This is quick fun read.   A lot of what you expect college to be. A time to explore and find yourself.
Chris is the starting forward at the Holsum college soccer team.  He has always been straight.  He has lost his mom and moved out of the dorm near his friends. He is now across the campus and in a tiny room alone.  What he discovers is a paper-thin wall and the one boy he never could get out of his head on the other side of it.
Peter knew Chris from a trip they did camping.  They had a huge connection, but Chris was sure to tell Peter in a good way that he was straight. But the more Peter gets to know Chris again the more his heart is saying Chris is the one for him.
Openly gay, and very comfortable with his own sexuality. Very easy going kinda guy I loved him from the start.
This is a great fun short read. About discovery, love, and acceptance.  I recommend this one to any true romantic at heart.
