Title: Brandon Mills versus the V-Card
Smart, shy Prescott sophomore Brandon Mills is working hard to overcome his troubled past and be normal. With the help of his friends Mark and Deacon, and his brothers at Phi Sigma Kappa, he’s slowly coming out of his shell. But when he accidentally drenches a freshman in orange soda, he faces something he’s not ready for: a boy crushing on him.
Alex Kekoa pledges Phi Sig because it has everything he wants: a house full of nerds who won’t tease him for being smart, a dog, and Brandon Mills. Brandon is just the type of guy Alex needs to help fulfill his college ambition: losing his virginity. Except Alex doesn’t know that Brandon can’t stand to touch or be touched.
When Alex and Brandon are drafted onto the Phi Sig Academic Challenge team, their mutual attraction grows. If there’s anyone who can help Brandon discover it feels good to touch and kiss, maybe it’s klutzy Alex with his cute glasses and his dinosaur obsession. But as the competition--and their relationship--heats up, Alex’s determination not to die a virgin clashes with Brandon’s vow of lifelong celibacy, forcing them to examine what’s truly important to each of them about love.

Lisa Henry and J.A. Rock have gifted readers with another gay college boy book treat. Brandon is past the horrid hazing that Alpha Delta Phi subjected him to. He is now settling in to the Phi Sigma Kappa house. He’s made a few friends and he is trying to be a normal college student. His eidetic memory gets in the way of some things, but it is something he feels that he is working towards getting past. He is still looking for his new start.
Freshman Alex Kekoa is all about getting every new experience he can under his belt while enjoying everything that college has to offer. Pledging Phi Sigma Kappa and meeting Brandon Mills is certainly the highlight of his Friday night. Now he just has to figure out how to do more than get soda spilled on him by his new crush. He wants the overly shy Brandon to notice him the same way he notices all of him.
Brandon Mills versus the V-Card still has the same fun element that is predecessor had. The big difference is the sexual heat level. Brandon and Alex are both virgins. Brandon has touch issues due to something that no child should ever have to suffer. Due to Brandon’s memories this slow simmer of his and Alex’s relationship made the most sense and really worked for this book.
This is definitely not a book to go into without having read the first in the series. Mark Cooper is all over the place, still, literally and figuratively. So if you’re a reader that really loved Mark and Deke you’re in luck. They have a large role in this installment of the Prescott college series. Blake also has a large and memorable role here too. There are plenty of laughs all around.
Favorite quote, Alex to Brandon: “So, nerd. Are you ready to quit analyzing everything and do dirty things to me?”
