Editorial Reviews

Review

Zach and Nathan were one of the more exciting couples that I had the pleasure to know recently. Great sex, wonderful heat and tender emotions made for an unusual romance. This was a really enjoyable story. --Jessewave Reviews, 4.5 out of 5 stars

Witt's writing style is friendly and as captivating as the characters she creates. I highly recommend this novel, and l look forward to more from this amazing author. --Happily Ever After Reviews, 5 out of 5 teacups

Book Description

“I believe you have something of mine, Zach.” Zach Owens doesn’t even know who this angry stranger is, let alone what he’s is talking about—until he learns what they have in common: their boyfriend, Jake. Once Jake’s out of the picture, Zach’s apology to Nathan Forrester leads to a long conversation, a kiss, and chemistry that goes far beyond revenge sex. Nathan can’t help but fall for the sexy theater owner, but it’s a long way from sheet-tearing sex to mutual trust, and Jake’s carefully orchestrated campaign to destroy their love could leave them both with nothing…
 


More About the Author

L.A. Witt is an abnormal M/M romance writer currently living in the glamorous and ultra-futuristic metropolis of Omaha, Nebraska, with her husband, two cats, and a disembodied penguin brain that communicates with her telepathically. In addition to writing smut and disturbing the locals, L.A. is said to be working with the US government to perfect a genetic modification that will allow humans to survive indefinitely on Corn Pops and beef jerky. This is all a cover, though, as her primary leisure activity is hunting down her arch nemesis, erotica author Lauren Gallagher, who is also said to be lurking somewhere in Omaha.

Overall, it's really not a bad story and it has a lot of very nice, not sex scenes.
LAS Reviewer
If you enjoy gay romances (and, yes, it's more along the lines of erotic romance), absolutely pick up this book, whether it's free when you check it out or not.
Jennifer Wardrip
I felt the story dragged a little bit in the beginning, with the constant repetition of situations and feelings that were never really resolved.

Zach is enjoying a night out with his boyfriend, Jake, when a stranger slides into his booth at the bar, claiming Zach has something of his. It turns out that the "something" is Jake. Zach is horrified to learn Jake has another boyfriend, one that Zach inadvertently played a part in breaking the heart of. He chases after the other man, Nathan, in order to apologize. Neither Zach nor Nathan plan on sparks flying between them. A night of revenge sex leads to an unexpected connection. But can a relationship that has such awkward origins go anywhere? And even if they try to make a go of it, will Jake's reappearance in their lives destroy what Zach and Nathan have built?

Nine-tenths of the Law is an interesting and somewhat unconventional romance. I admit, I was intrigued by how Zach and Nathan met. That something so rotten could lead to something so beautiful charmed the hell out of me. Zach and Nathan are good men; they just had horrible taste when it came to Jake. I loved watching Zach and Nathan fall for one another. L.A. Witt doesn't make it easy on them. Jake does his best to break them up and Nathan, scarred by past relationships, doesn't trust easily. I felt bad that Zach was constantly trying to prove himself trustworthy to Nathan, but at the same time I understood why it was so hard for Nathan to trust. Ms. Witt doesn't make the obstacles in Zach and Nathan's romance easy to overcome, but that gives Nine-tenths of the Law a feeling of realism. All in all, I greatly enjoyed Nine-tenths of the Law. It's sexy, heartbreaking, and an all-around entertaining story.

When Zach and Nathan find out they share a boyfriend, the two men discover perhaps they have more in common than just one man. What starts as an unusual meeting, a two timing boyfriend confronted by both of the men turns into a start of something new for the disgruntled ex's. Although both Zach and Nathan never knew each other before Jake cheated on them, they discover they want to know more. What starts as an easy, uncomplicated rebound becomes something deeper with potential. Yet both Zach and Nathan have issues they need to overcome to make the relationship work and perhaps there is too much for them to last.

Nine-Tenths is an erotic romance, heavy on sex. It's not sex scene after sex scene but these are classic male stereotypes that solve arguments with good sex instead of talking. The main conflict is the issue of trust. Nathan and Zach were both cheated on by their mutual ex Jake but Zach gets over it quicker since he wasn't as serious about Jake as Nathan was. Nathan also has a second destructive ex that has damaged his ability to trust. Nathan's lack of trust runs into Zach's frustration since he's never done anything to deserve Nathan's suspicion. Their conflict rises repeatedly between bouts of sex as the two slowly start to invest more emotionally into the relationship.

The story is decent with well rounded characters shown from Zach's first person point of view. The emotional conflict is the main continuing storyline and can feel repetitive since the two men never really resolve their issues. Nathan is suspicious and worried Zach will cheat on him while Zach is frustrated by Nathan's lack of trust. Both men are sympathetic and understandable in their concerns but it's tends to be frustrating in its repetition.

Had a great opening scene/premise and I was really interested to see what happened next, but I felt Witt kind of lost the way and even though it's a shorter novella, it got a bit bogged down in the middle.

Zack is the cinema owner (and frankly, didn't that sound boring, the way it was described!) and Nathan is the man who accuses him of sleeping with his lover. Then they both break up with the two timing Jake and start a relationship of their own. There is so much meat to explore here, trust and sex and possessiveness, but the actually story was kind of boring and I felt that tension was created artificially, which was completely unnecessary. So it was a great idea but inadequately explored. The sex scenes were okay, but didn't really do it for me either.

Okay, lets start with saying that this is not my normal sub-genre of erotica, but I was pleasantly surprised by it. While it does get rather graphic, the story is good, and the author does a good job with the progression of the story. It is a little short, and Nate is a little one-sided, but overall I thought it weas well written. I picked this up for free, which is the only reason that I got it, but it was worth the hour of so it took to read. Would recommend it to anyone intrigued by a gay erotica with an actual story and relationship.

I've never read anything by L.A. Witt before, but after reading this wonderful story, I definitely plan on checking to see what else the author has written.

Full disclosure - I picked up this story because it was free, and it was a gay romance, which I've been reading a lot of lately. I'm so glad I did, because I got so caught up in Zach and Nathan's story that I read the entire thing in one sitting.

The plot is unusual in that our two main characters meet under horrible circumstances - they find out they have a mutual boyfriend whose been cheating on them both - and yet somehow they turn this horrific situation into something great.

Both Zach and Nathan are great characters. I love Zach's take-charge, business-first persona, and I loved Nathan's more submissive personality that was so wracked with hurt that he found it hard to trust anyone, including himself.

If you enjoy gay romances (and, yes, it's more along the lines of erotic romance), absolutely pick up this book, whether it's free when you check it out or not. It's a great read.
