Book Description

A Sneak Peek from the erotic anthology, Can You Feel What I'm Saying?

What happens when Stanley Brewster, a 40-year-old "born-again" virgin, runs into Robert "Bobby" Carpenter, Jr., one of his former elementary school students, who is now 20, sexy, and sinfully stacked? Naturally, Stanley gets his back in groove—and, to his surprise, may finally conquer his fear of intimacy.

1.0 out of 5 stars As tired and hackneyed as the title November 22, 2012
By Zee Jai
Format:Kindle Edition
I'd like to claim I was pleasantly surprised by Hardy's latest effort: a predictable, limp, cut'n'paste of his "greatest hits" (a laughable concept - every one of his books feeds off his first effort, B-Boy Blues. James Earl Hardy is the epitome of the author who has one good book in them - the trouble is, no one's had the nerve to break the news to him) but I wasn't.

Hardy must be thrilled with the tragic demise of E. Lynn Harris, since it leaves clear the field for sub-soap blaxploitation. And despite his pretensions of civil rights activism, that's all Hardy ever manages to churn out: bad soap with some added heat. His crude stereotypes are offensive, and his style cringe-worthy. Reading a James Earl Hardy novel is like reading a story on a social networking site like BGCLive.

And that's really the best description for drivel like this: fan fiction on a forum. The author is so in love with his own work that he's almost spoofing himself. Still, for Hardy this Kindle-only short story must be a big comedown from those heady hardback days back in the '90s, but I guess beggars can't be choosers.

Don't waste a moment of your precious time on this, let alone hard-earned cash. Buy something by a writer, not a pretender.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect for a Sunday afternoon read! September 28, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Growing up I desperately needed gay role models - I needed to see gay men strong as well as tender... sexy as well as thoughtful... successful in spite of failures... and loving powerfully and beautifully just like everyone else. James Earl Hardy along with James Baldwin and E Lynn Harris showed me these possibilites - through their words, these authors gave me a mirror I could look into and see all of me... they helped me understand who I was. So I am thrilled to get a new JEH book!

What I love most about James Earl Hardy is his gift for breaking down the complexities of our lives... our loves... and our relationships into the most simple structures. But in this simplicity, he captures perfectly all the beauty and richness and flavor that makes us who we are - I think its genius! I love it and I'm sure you will too. I bet this will be the most rewarding 27 pages you'll read... yup that's what I wrote - 27 pages! It's amazing what someone with skill and talent can fit into 27 pages - perfect for a Sunday afternoon read.
