I was excited when I got the chance to review this book. On Twitter I kept hearing about the Dong of Doom. While it was said in jest, I kept feeling bad for the hero of this book. While the story doesn’t go into the specifics of just how big the hero is, leave no doubt that he is bigger than what I an imagine in the penis department.

Harold Jacobs has always had a big penis that has embarrassed him. Admitting he is gay was probably easier to let out. A  transplant from England, he is just very over sensitive to everything about his appearance. To hide his huge penis, he rooms alone at college, but must share a shower. Getting up at 2 in the morning to shower is his way of avoiding all the looks, stares, and whispers, but that all goes to pot when Owen McKenzie shows up for a shower as well.

When Owen sees just what Harold is packing, he can’t stop thinking of him. Owen is a closet bi-sexual who has shoved down all the gay feelings to avoid being ridiculed. But Owen decides to take Harold under his wing. Redressing him, taking him to parties and introducing him to other gay men, Owen starts to realize he is attracted to Harold more than he thought.

The two young men have a lot of missteps along the way to finding love. Peer pressure plays a role in their decisions, but also the transformation of Harold from a guy who hides everything to the guy who is confident  in his clothes and life. Both characters grow into their skins and become more than what I expected. Though the Dong of Doom does play into their lives, it is done tastefully and it is never referred to the Dong of Doom in the book.

Throughout some of the book, we meet other gay couples and men attending this college. They help support the characters and in ways straighten out Owen. The book is not just men who love men. They don’t always know they are gay and Daisy does a good job of helping them discover who they are and who they love.

The writing style is fluid and colorful. Painting a story that allows me to see into this relationship as it grows from infancy to dating into something slightly more.

    I missed all the Twitter stuff. That’s hilarious- Dong of Doom. I liked the book too.

    • Oh Sophia, it was funny to see the conversations and I was scared of what she would do to this kid. I was pleasantly surprised that he was treated with respect even for his size.

      • Aw, I have nothing but respect for a man w a giant peen. 🙂
