More About the Author
As far as Daisy's concerned, the best things in life happen by accident. Though she's gotten better at planning over the years, she still writes, lives and plays by the seat of her pants. Her books are a happy mix of romantic comedies and coming of age stories, more often than not, inspired by the great films of the 1980s.
Daisy lives in Seattle in a house full of dogs and children. When she's not writing gay romance, she can be found experimenting with new ways to cook kale. Every once in a while, she goes out to pay homage to the party gods of her youth--and maybe to find a little trouble.

Nat knew early on he was gay. He didn't act, talk or walk like the other boys and so he figured why not just embrace what was already glaringly obvious. Though he was used to the stares and the derogatory words people muttered under their breath that didn't mean it hurt any less. After a bad relationship Nat basically shut down his emotions. No one saw what was pinging around inside of this guy that appeared so in control of himself. The vulnerability he kept tightly leashed in fear of being hurt by another man who wasn't prepared to deal with his personality. When he sets his sights on the President of the colleges only gay fraternity, Greg, he's only thinking short term. A up and coming successful gay man like Greg, who can easily pass for straight, would have no need for a boyfriend that screams homosexual. Greg though has been watching Nat from afar not completely understanding his own attraction to the flamboyant fraternity pledge. He knows he wants him, but in what context? Though Greg doesn't want to jeopardize Nat rush to become a pledge so he keeps himself at a distance making Nat believe he has no interest.
I loved the dynamics between these two. It's a twist on opposites attract I suppose. Each with their own insecurities they bring to the table that no one can see on the surface. Both being so different and yet still so alike.Read more ›
The second installment of Daisy Harris's Men of Holsum College series, Frat Boy and the Diva is a hot but sweet romance between two very different men. Nathaniel Reece is flamboyant, out and proud. In other words, he is the complete opposite of the equally out but quiet and could pass for straight any day of the week Greg Sanders. Will it be possible for these two people with vastly dissimilar personalities to embrace and fully appreciate one another's differences?
Nathaniel is so gay he makes everyone (including himself) uncomfortable. He plays up his natural tendencies in an attempt to protect himself from being hurt. With a long string of casual hook ups behind him, he is not expecting a long term relationship with Greg.
Greg is fairly insulated from the prejudices that Nathaniel faces. He believes the fraternity is accepting of all students gay and straight until he is faced with the growing realization that some of his fraternity brothers are not as tolerant and open minded as he originally believes. With his growing feelings for Nathaniel, Greg is forced to confront his own prejudices as well as those of the fraternity and the general public.
I really enjoyed watching the relationship between Greg and Nathaniel grow from one of extremely hot and steamy sex to one filled with deeper emotions. Greg is slow to appreciate the man behind Nathaniel's flashy personality. Nathaniel always remains true to himself even when Greg finds it difficult to accept his public persona. Nathaniel maintains an emotional distance, but Greg does not let that keep him from following his heart.
Frat Boy and the Diva is a thought-provoking story that does not shy away from exposing the discrimination that sometimes exists in the gay community.Read more ›
I immediately understood why Greg would be attracted to Nathaniel, even if he was uncomfortable with his mannerisms at times. I had a much harder time understanding what Nathaniel saw in Greg. I saw Greg as cold and selfish, which aren't two of the most appealing qualities in my opinion. I'm still a little bit mad at him because he saw how Nathaniel was being discriminated against within the gay community and passively stood by and let it happen. Actions like that don't scream love to me. That leads into my one issue with this book.
I wasn't feeling the love. I felt a lot of attraction and passion between them, but not love. Surprisingly though, that didn't kill the romance for me. There was so much hot, rough, angry sex happening in the beginning that I wasn't feeling the need for love and affection anyway. It took me a while to warm up to the relationship but I eventually got there and even grew to like Greg. In the end I got exactly what I was hoping for out of this book, a light and fun read that I truly enjoyed.
Greg and Nathaniel are rocking the opposites attract relationship. Each does not know what the other sees in him. They have just begun to even acknowledge the attraction and Nathaniel is going into it assuming it's just a good time hook up. After all they are going in different directions with everything in their lives.
I loved all of the emotions and struggles that I was taken through as Nathaniel and Greg found something that worked for them. Their differences did not make for an easy budding relationship. Greg is graduating and moving off campus. Nathaniel is younger, still attending school and not going anywhere for the time being. Then they still had the issues of how Nathaniel was viewed by even his peers in the fraternity.
The epilogue was a nice addition. At the close of almost any book I am always curious as to where the couple is a few months or years down the road. I'm often left wondering how the relationship was still working in the future. Daisy gives her readers a very sexy snippet into Greg and Nathaniel's happily ever after.
I recieved a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

Another wonderful little story involving college students from Daisy Harris. I very much enjoyed the first book in this series and was definitely looking forward to the second. Read morePublished 21 months ago by C. Jefferson
This story didn't feel as complete as its predecessor ... Greg and Nathaniel had a complex dynamic going on that was only shallowly developed with a lot of the underlying issues... Read morePublished on January 18, 2014 by Beck
"Nathaniel wasn't just gay, he was a raging, bright pride parade with a rainbow-colored cherry on top."
