Review: Little Stalker by Erica Pike
No Boundaries Press
3.75 Pants Off
College student Coby is being stalked by a young guy and has no idea why, until someone suggests that the stalker may have a crush on him. The idea both excites and terrifies Coby, who is so deep in the closet he can barely manage to think the word “gay” without freaking out.
I am really enjoying these stories in this College series, I like some more than others but they have all been great. Little Stalker is a lot tamer than the other stories when it comes to the sexy, but all in all it was surprisingly cute and managed to give a punch in such a few pages.
Coby is hung-over and he's throwing a girl out of his bed, something that seems to be the norm with him. He can't seem to get it up with the ladies, so he's gotta be piss drunk to perform (if he did perform =_=). To make matters worse seems Coby has himself a stalker, one that disappears quickly so Coby always sounds like he's crazy. He decides he's going to get his hands on the little creep once and for all, but what he never expected is the blazing attraction he would feel for his stalker Grayson. If there's one thing that Coby knows, he knows he's not that way, gay that is.
Talk about denial much, and you get Coby. Clearly, his body is calling for the male variety but he's fighting it. He says some pretty hurtful things to Grayson, and then drinks himself all the way to the hospital before he realizes that yes he's gay and in need of Grayson if only to apologize. A hunt for his stalker finds him in a seedy part of Phili, and it's there he's faced with how tough Gray has it.
I really enjoyed it, and was glad it stepped away from the sex to focus on deeper issues. I like Coby, and think he did a good thing for Grayson. I just want to give Gray a huge hug, its clear he's been through so much and is just really trying to live. I am very interested in how they will fare in the future but for now, I am happy.
Overall, I liked it and thought it was cute. This series is a must read cus it's just so much fun and the titles/plot are always quirky.
