Review: My Fair Dork

Reviewed by Jen

Size really does matter. But bigger isn't always better. No one understands that more than Harold.  There's really no gentle way to say it.  His dick is really, really big.  So big, in fact, that it has been a constant source of embarrassment. It's also, however, what drew Owen's attention in the dorm shower room.

Owen has always known he was bisexual. But it has always been easier to just act on his attraction to girls.  After his eyeful of Harold's goods in the shower, though, he can't stop thinking about the awkward and somewhat dorky kid from England.  He decides to focus his energies on helping Harold find a bit of a cool-factor.

It doesn't take long for Owen's well-meaning experiment to cross the line of friendship.  And once they begin to get physical, Owen must decide whether Harold is worth outing himself on campus.

I can't say this was my favorite among the Holsum College books, but it's pretty in keeping with the rest of the series. It has the same strengths: a sweet coming of age gay love story and smoking hot sex.  It also has the same weaknesses: a relationship that develops at lightening speed with conflict resolution that is just as fast --plus the L-word way, way too soon.  Sadly, that's my biggest romance peeve, so it drives me nuts over and over again.

I keep reading, though. Because the characters are sympathetic and the love stories are easy to root for.  Oh yeah, and the sex is super-good.  (*sigh*) If only these guys could wait more than two weeks to pick out matching china patterns...

I like your whimsical review and I agree about your peeve regarding the "L" word. Sounds like a fun series.

Is it just me or does the guy on the right look a little like Jeremy Gilbert from Vampire Diaries?
