Michael first saw Andrew Knudson in his Intro to Psychology class in his sophomore year of college. He was instantly obsessed with the beautiful muscular boy. He didnt have the nerve to speak to him but couldnt take his eyes from him. On the day the professor assigned a partnership project, he couldnt believe no one else was rushing to try

Wow, really enjoyed this....

Michael is obsessed with his classmate Andrew....stalking and lusting after him.They are eventually brought together on a class project and so the dorm games begin.Andrew always has to be in control until Michael plays a game of his own which brings the two men closer together

I regarded it just as little,a light and silent laughter fluttering in my chest as I wrestled tongue and mouth with the boy of my dreams in my messy dorm bed

Meh. Control games. Not really my thing.

Michael is smitten with Andrew and they start playing 'games' in Michael's dorm room. Always by Andrew's rules though.

It's kind of titillating in parts, but there's not really enough description of events to call it erotica (a few BJ's and some hand action, very few kisses,) zero indication of feelings from Andrew, although Michael clearly wants more.

The end is kind of cute and hints that things will change as Andrew loosens his grip on the reigns of their

Daryl is one of my all time favorite authors. Up until now, what I have read from him has been more fantasy storyline and less arousal based. When I found out he was going to write a sexy M/M contemporary, I couldn't wait to get my eyes on it.

I was not disappointed. He brought the sexy while still delivering that differently awesome 'Daryl' way of wording things.

Michael is kinda nerdish. He has the hots for Mr.

Wasn't really into the tickling, but the rest was kinda hot :P

I confess: I like reading about control games. They can be totally hot if balanced with genuine emotion between characters and if the games fulfill some deep need for each party. But I never felt quite like Dorm Game got there; there wasn't enough sex to call it erotica, and not enough emotion to call it romance. Not really sure what this was.

Also worth noting that there's no on page sex - merely a couple of hand jobs, BJs, and two or three kisses.

The first in a series of novellas from Daryl of The Beautiful Dead series and The Outlier series.
Each book is a complete standalone story and they can be read in any order.
The first installment is about two college a cocky buff "player" (he likes to play games) and the other a more serious boy obsessed with his new friend and desperately in need of his attention.
It is sexy, funny and addresses the issue of men who can't be real with who they are unless they are

Michael horny with a capital H, and has eyes for the too-hot-to-be-true guy in class. Andrew likes to be in control and play head games, leaving Michael more frustrated than satisfied half the time, and only letting his guard down on one drunken night. Even though Michael gets into the games, he cant tell if Andrew actually cares at all, and a guy can only take so much.

Dorm Game is a great quick read with an excellent balance of funny, steamy, and sweet. I cant wait for more!

Seeing as I hate to give away the plot and some of my fellow reviewers have already done a great wrap of what kind of story this is I'll just tell you my thoughts on Dorm Game.

First and foremost you should know that this is a m/m story and if that isn't your thing than I would recommend you try some of Daryl's other awesome books like Outlier or The Beautiful Dead. I personally like to read romance in anything because when is love ever a bad thing?

Much flapping of arms and squeeing occurred when

I was given a copy of this book by the author in exchange for am honest review.

Having read 3 of Daryl's other books, I had to ask if I didn't to be made aware if this book would make me sob in public because both Dead of Winter and Outlier: Rebellion caused such reactions. I was going to be around people, and I had to be sure!

...turns out that is NOT what I needed to worry about while in public. Because, gawd damn. This book has some shmexiness.

By some, I mean a lot.

Good fast read

What starts out as a Psych project using games between two twenty year old college classmates, turns into a game of tug of war for dominance for Michael and Andrew. I actually became fascinated by how everything had to have a winner and a loser when really, the end result was seemed like a win/win to me! Clever story and very well written ...

Okay, this is the second book in this.....catagory that I have read. I wanted to try something new and outside my comfort zone. This book could be classified as a M/M romance. Or maybe erotica. I am no expert in these kinds of things. But it really wasn't any different that reading about a straight couple.

I don't know how much more outside my comfort zone I can get with this book. If I am being completely honest with myself, I can say that didn't expect to like it at all.

I love when a book

I've found the world's greatest source of renewable energy, and it is horniness.

This first line cracked me up. Truer words have never been spoken. Entire industries are built on this premise. Daryl Banner has it right.

Andrew and Micheal are in college. And boy, do they get and give an education. Lessons in control, mind games, pleasure and patience.

Michael wants to explore being who he is. He knows he's gay, but doesn't really know how to be gay. He needs a tutor.

There are some authors who's work is so good that I will buy and read anything they write. Daryl Banner has become one of those authors. He genre jumps and each book has his unique voice with a small change to fit the books theme. His newest book Dorm Game, a M/M erotica, didn't disappoint and I loved it. I felt like a naughty fly on the wall in the dorms reading this.

With Dorm Game he delves into the world of college and the relationship between two men. Each one is completely different in

I was first introduced to Daryl Banner through his amazing Post Apocalyptic series, The Beautiful Dead and quickly became a fan of his unique writing style. I was intrigued to see how someone could go from writing about the undead to M/M erotica. As expected Daryl's Brazen Boys books are just as unique, and very sexy.

Dorm Game is a quick read about Michael, a college student and his fellow classmate Andrew. Michael has a huge crush on Andrew and when a class project brings the two

Banner's short of two college boys pushing the envelope on game playing was light and engaging. Their interactions and (lack) of dialogue felt age-appropriate. Banner took a page straight from the Kora Knight playbook of how to pace a novella and the humor reminded me a bit of Nicolas Scott's campus-based novel. I was thrown off by a few early and glaring typos that had me doubting the quality of the writing and editing. On the first two pages were "The sweat...and the dim light...makes (sic) ...more

This is my second book by Daryl Banner. I am becoming a fan of M/M reads thanks to his talented writing. Dorm Game was a delicious, sexy read. Daryl's writing has just the right mix of erotica and humor. This was a guilty pleasure for me on this Sunday morning. Michael and Andrew become partners on a psychology project. Andrew likes to turn everything into a game. Let the "Dorm Games" commence. "The game is played many ways, and in its end, we should both come out winners, shouldn't we?" Guess ...more

This story was HOT!! Games of the mind in the sense of psychology.. Michael was obsessed with Andrew, who was big and muscle bound at the point of stalking. Then they got together on a psychology project which started their unusual relationship. Andrew was into games, and he wanted control. The who thing made Michael confused as to what they were to each other.. Their extent of sex was only jerk offs. This was a really interesting and sexually exciting book. It's a short read, but I ...more

Dorm Game is a hot little M/M short. Perfect blend of intrigue and sexy.
Who doesn't enjoy sexy games and this book is a genuine little thrill ride. I started it and finished it without putting the Kindle down.
If you're a fan of male/male smexy... This little gem won't disappoint.
4.5 stars from me.

This is a cute sexy hot little story written by Daryl Banner. If you've already read The Beautiful Dead series, Outlier or/and Super Psycho Future Killers, you do know that Daryl is a genius.
I love the way he writes, the way he plays with words and the way he makes me feel all these emotions I don't even know I have, somewhere... I was first introduced to Daryl via a post on FB from one of my favorite authors, and I simply trusted her.

This was very enjoying light read for me. My Twinsie sis, Angie, suggested that I give it a read. Well it was a great recommendation. I usually don't spend a lot of time reading novellas mainly because I'm pretty greedy and almost always want more...LOL. This was my first Daryl Banner book and I loved his writing. I thought the story flowed well and I loved the entire concept of the plot.

Essentially this book is about two college men using games to explore who they are. Michael is comfortable

This book starts with a hot scene and ends with a tender scene...sorta. I haven't really grasped the whole concept of Andrew yet lol. Most of the story from the second chapter until the start of the last is a flashback. It's a bit obviously that is, but some readers can feign ignorance to the fact.

Our characters, Michael and Andrew, are about as different as night and day from an outward perspective; but inside, in their hearts, they are really quite the same, they just go about getting things

I thought this was going to be PWP really. But it turned out to be quite different.

Michael has a major crush on a fellow student in his intro to psych class, Andrew. He grabs thhe chance of partnering up with Andrew for a project in class and their relationsship develop from that and later into being roommates.

I really lacked Andrew's perspective in this. He came across as a bit of an asshole. Aloof and annoying - what's his deal? What's his back story? Why is he like this? How did

The Brazen Boys Series is a M/M novella series. Each story is self contained. I read the three novellas in order. Books 1 and 2 I really liked. They were hot. There was tension, but it wasn't overpowering. Book 1 was very entertaining because the "jock" was a very in control and the "nerd" was so into him he couldn't stop, but the revelation at the end made it worthwhile. Book 2 was just as good as book 1 and I find myself hoping if Daryl decides to revisit and expand the Brazen Boys' stories, ...more
