Contemporary Romance, LGBTQ
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.

What to say except that this was close to perfection. Daisy Harris knows her way around a romance, and creating sexual tension for her seems as easy as breathing.
Chris is a college student who has just lost his mother and in his need to have some time alone, to grieve in peace, he leaves his roommates and moves to the other side of campus into a single room. What he didn't know when he first accepted the room was that it was separated from the one next door by a wall as thick as cardboard.
Peter's had a thing for Chris from the beginning of the year when they shared a tent on a camping trip and Chris got a bit too close during the night. But Chris is straight, always has been and had made it pretty clear to Peter. So when they start jerking off together, spurred on by the easily heard sounds from one another through the thin wall, things turn to awkward filled with possibilities.
This book was exactly what I was looking for. From the easy writing style to the perfect dose of romance. Chris seemed somewhat naïve but genuinely a good person and it's pretty much impossible not to like him. Peter was just the right guy to get Chris into the ‘gay waters'. He was patient and controlled enough not to make stupid mistakes.
I really loved this couple and am on a look out for more Daisy Harris books, she can charm me with her vision of a perfect couple anytime.
