This was a free download on amazon.ca. It’s a very short story (47 pages approx.) with the main character from another book or series, Beau’s Backdoor. At the end is an excerpt from Beau’s Backdoor.
In this short story, Mitchell is gay chemistry major in college. He’s working on perfecting a new kind of lube. His straight drunk roommate comes home from a party sexually frustrated and things happen. I’ll let you guess what.
It’s a quick, fun story, pretty hot, and the excerpt for the book is interesting. Does it make me want to buy it? No, not really. Not because it’s badly written or anything, just because the story is a little predictable. Maybe I’m wrong and the story has a mysterious twist or a surprising turn, who knows, but it didn’t hook me.
For a free sample of Mandy Harbin’s writing, it’s cool and maybe you’ll feel like buying her books after you read this one.
Aaaarrrgh!!! Claire Cray is driving me NUTS!!! This is book 6 of the Hidden Talents series and Ms. Cray does not write fast enough. Seriously.
I bought Hidden Talents (the first one) in July 2013 for zero dollars. Yup, the first five, yes count them, five books are free. They’re short too but still. This is the first one I paid for and it was a whopping dollar. One dollar. I would have paid more.
I already posted about these characters here. I love them. They each have their own Talents (psychic or physical superhuman powers) and work with each other and against the bad guys, but the story is more about the relationships within this band of Talents than about them fighting crime. Because it’s hard to live with an ability like theirs and they’re fucked up people, but oh so endearing and lovable and vulnerable and loving (and still smartass like Jin or weird like Ken).
And there’s an interesting love story developing in this one that we’ve seen coming and have cheered for and yay! it’s finally happening and then BOOM the book is finished and you have to wait for the next one to see what’s gonna happen with these merry men.
Yaddayaddayadda about the sex and everything. Not for kids. For adults who love a good story, well-written dialogue, hot sex scenes, and funny, cheeky dialogue.
Loved it, loved it, loved it. On sale on amazon.ca for a dollar. I love how it was written (UK English). Very mature, sincere, with real issues and emotions.
Two guys who work for the same company but not the same office end up dating. It’s a beautiful story. The characters are real guys, intelligent, mature, reasonable, with flaws sure but no unnecessary drama.
The love (euphemism for sex) scenes are great. Hot, not too dirty or crass. A classy affair.
I got a copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review in my Goodreads MM Romance group.
I didn’t know Val Kovalin’s writing before and I loved it. First, the story is set in 1984, when I was 16. The characters are 18 at this time. So many references I could relate to! And I love the characters. I have a soft spot for Bobby – his love for Alejo is so strong it’s never in doubt. He knows he wants to spend the rest of his life with him. At such a young age, it’s truly beautiful. The story is well written, well balanced, a joy to read. Throughout the whole ordeal, I was rooting for these guys so much. The emotions sound true and sincere. I miss them now. I’ll have to read the other book.
But I’m not sure if I’ll like it. Apparently, the follow-up which was written first is their story but on a different timeline – think of the movie with Gwyneth Paltrow Sliding Doors. Remember? Two different timelines. Weird. In this case, the guys broke up after college and reunite at 40. I don’t know if I’ll survive the breakup. I prefer to keep the HEA (happily ever after) ending in my mind.
Eh… who knows.
I think I noticed one mistake in the whole book. A masterpiece of grammar, syntax and spelling. YAY!!!! Thank you Val Kovalin! So refreshing.
The characters in this book are 18 so they can have all the hot sex they want and we’re witness to some of those scenes. If you’re younger than the characters, you can’t read it. So there.
At $3.33 it’s four short stories back to back. The shorts were sold separately before, and just Book 2 was $3.20 so it’s a bargain.
The main story is built around the sexual encounters of our main characters. The side stories aren’t very developed and we’re okay with that because the sex scenes are pretty good. The bisexuals are guys, the girl is hetero but doesn’t mind sharing her boyfriend with another man. She also has fun with that third wheel.
A good freebie from amazon.ca. I’ve read other books by Sara York before and enjoyed them.
This one is fun too. It’s on a ranch, so you get gay cowboys who are not out who fall in love and hide it until they can’t anymore. Very sweet and well written. Sara York is not afraid to make her manly men cry and feel deep emotions. It’s refreshing. It’s the first of the Texas Soul series, the others (5) are priced at $3 but you can get them all for $5.75, not expensive for 922 pages of good reading.
Also by the same author that I read:
They’re all free. Some have sequels that cost money.
For my non-existent under-18 readers: have an adult read it to you and block your ears and sing “blablabla” really loud at the sex parts because there are some pretty hot ones in there. Or wait until you’re 18 and download them.
