Review: Freshman: Uncut (Ivory Towers #1) by Daisy Harris

Sparks fly between jaded film TA, Shane, and tough-acting freshman, Angel. Shane gives Angel the sex he craves, but struggles to be the man he needs.

Shane’s too old for Angel. Even if Angel weren’t a freshman in Shane’s Intro to Film class, the kid would be too closeted, too confused, too darn changeable and needy. But when Shane sees the pain lurking behind Angel’s tough exterior, he can’t help but reach out to him and give in to the desire in those scared, brown eyes.

Pacific Rim University may as well be another planet from the Oakland neighborhood where Angel grew up. Angel’s fought all his life to get respect, and to stay hard in the eyes of his friends back home. Always the weird kid, Angel was the guy who never hooked up with girls. Meeting his very sexy, very male Film TA, Angel starts to understand why. He refuses to admit he’s gay, but he lives for every one of Shane’s smiles.

When Shane takes Angel to task for his insolent attitude, Angel can’t resist pushing his TA further. He wants Shane to show him, force him, make him accept all the feelings battling around in his mind and his body. But Angel doesn’t just need sex. He needs a man who can help him navigate the new and very raw landscape of his feelings.

Angel is beginning his freshman year at Pacific Rim University. In more ways than he ever could have possibly imagined this really is a new beginning for him. He has left the place where he had to present himself a certain way. He has left the people that never really knew him or understood him. He is now surrounded by new people and new experiences that he doesn’t exactly know how to handle. Luckily he meets Shane his Intro to Film class TA. Shane is going to be much more of an assistant than either one of them ever expected. Shane is going to help Angel figure some things out.

I absolutely loved Shane and Angel. They are so wrong for each other, yet they are so right for each other. Shane knows who he and is comfortable with the direction his life is going. Angel is a trainwreck looking for the wrong place to derail. He is one of those people that you want to help though. Angel is not the trainwreck to watch helplessly, you want to prevent this derailment. Angel has built this tough image and he is so used to having to wear it he is clueless when he is allowed to be comfortable with who he is. This is why Shane is just tailored made for Angel. Shane is a few years older and he sees the things Angel is hiding. Shane wants to peel those false layers off of Angel. This all makes for an incredibly sexy story.

I cannot wait to get more of these two. There is so much between them. They have the necessary attraction, but the insecurities, doubts, and sometimes just confusion makes their story impossible to put down.
