I so wanted to love this short story.  It is rockers, and that’s a favorite genre of mine.  The problem, however, is that I hated the main character.  Razor is a selfish guitarist in the band the Evil Psycho Gods.  They are playing a gig at the Loaded Snail (yes, love the names), and he is onstage scouting his one-off for the night. He is on the lookout for a … Continue reading

Poor Nick.  In this short story, he is beautiful, growing ever more so as he gets older.  You would think this would be a good thing, but Nick is also very vain, and he doesn’t take much care when he is telling an admirer no.  When he garners the attention of the gods, he is offered a choice.  True love or immortality?  Nick figures, he’s so hot he will get true love while … Continue reading

This is a short story from the Less Than Three Valentine bundle.  This is a fantasy story that seemed historical when I first started reading, until I realized Kennet was reading the newspaper, so not as medieval as I thought.  Kennet’s best friend is Brennar, who also happens to be Kennet’s secret love. Brennar is the heir to an estate, and to add to his gloriousness, he is chosen as the … Continue reading

This is a super short revisit to Cassidy and Malcolm, the incredibly lovely couple from Missing Butterfly.  I wish wish wish this had been longer, because it was so great to revisit these guys.

In this little vignette, a slimebag musician named Beckett has engineered a photo op for paparazzi at a charity event;  he shoves his tongue down Cassidy’s throat while cameras click.  He does it for publicity, not … Continue reading

Genre: M/M Sci Fi

This was a decent Sci-Fi story with great world building. I found the blurb to be misleading in the fact the a majority of this story focused on  a second set of MC’s.  I think that they were more fleshed out and therefore more interesting. I had some difficulty connecting with either set of MC’s too much due to the constant POV shifts. Overall, it was an … Continue reading
