Scandal by Billie Bloom

Xander is a recovering former manipulator who is trying to run from last year's Scandal and finding out it might not be as easy as he thought... 

From the blurb:

Xander is a storm of contradictions, a shadow lurking in the corners of a world he doesn't quite belong to. Broken and depraved, he thrives on pushing boundaries, testing limits, and taking risks that could cost him everything. His scholarship dangles by a thread, his moral compass spinning in chaotic directions. This semester is his last shot at redemption, a final chance to escape the downward spiral that threatens to consume him.

Enter Cameron, the embodiment of innocence in a place stained with privilege and secrets. Fresh out of the closet and wide-eyed with hope, he wears his heart on his sleeve and believes he can mend even the most shattered souls. As the son of the college president, he's embraced by the ivory towers that Xander teeters on the edge of, and he's determined to prove that love can bridge any gap.

Forced together thanks to the random dorm lottery, Xander and Cameron find themselves sharing a space that becomes both refuge and battleground.

In a world where their love is forbidden, where redemption seems elusive, can Cameron's trust and hope heal the fractures in Xander's soul?

Heather's Review:

Roommates to lovers, hidden histories, family interference.. so many roadblocks getting in the way of a sweet and steamy bi-awakening story.  Xander is determined to turn over a new leaf and Cam is determined to avoid his last name... but when they connect and the chemistry is great!

I loved the interplay, the caring and the way the characters just got each other.  This was a read that I just had to finish!
