A Collection of male/male stories on finding love again.

Non-Negotiable by T. D. Green
Jacob Kerns is due a promotion, but his ambitions are at risk when he learns his next contract will be handled by Alexander Corey, his ex. Jake tries to put personal feelings aside to do his job, but Alex won't let him. Will they find love again or is the whole thing non-negotiable?

Heart of Glass by L. J. Harris
When Zack Doherty comes to Australia on a working holiday, he is uncharacteristically forward in pushing Heath Connors, a man he barely knows, for a date. Heath, who has only recently begun to live life his way, wonders if Zack will be the one to mend his heart of glass.

Better Together by DaNay Smith
Greyson Welles followed Dominic Nash to Baltimore for his dream job, putting his own on hold. Dominic can see that Greyson's unhappy, but never expects him to turn down his proposal and return to New York. Will Greyson be gone forever or will he decide they're better together?

Dirty Martini by Bette Browne
When Daniel Fletcher runs into his ex with the man he caught him in bed with, vodka seems like the answer. Nathan Smith is used to men drowning their sorrows at the bar he tends, so the connection he feels to one is unusual. Will a means to forget turn into something more?

Notice to Appear by C. C. Lorenz
Josh Campbell is handed a notice to appear in court for a traffic offence, but his humiliation is complete when he comes face to face with his schoolboy crush, Carter Sullivan, in the court room. Could this be the start of something with Carter now that age is not an issue.

Don't wait for a second chance to read these stories. All of them are well written with characters that you like almost instantly. Each story has a different approach to everyday occurences in relationships. Careers pulling them apart. Crushes that you never acted on. Business associates who attrack you on a sublevel. Leaving everything to start over with nothing. If I could pick a favorite it would be "Heart of Glass" by L.J. Harris. Heath tears at your heart from his very first words and Zach wants to help mend Heath's broken heart and spirit and find the person he really is inside. The passion is real and the sex hot.

4.0 out of 5 stars Smashwords buyer October 2, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I really liked the last story in this anthology, Notice to Appear, by C.C. Lorenz. This was a really sweet story about getting a second chance at a childhood crush despite terrible circumstances for a second meeting and bad timing to start a relationship. There's hot sex in here, and it's well balanced with relationship without too much exposition into the main character's thoughts on everything. Very nice read, enough to make me happy with the ending and wish I could have seen a larger story about these characters, with more sex of course.

I also liked the first story in the set, Non-Negotiable, by T.D. Green. This is another sweet romance, but a bit rougher in that, of the entire anthology, this short is the most about a second chance. This is a story of a nasty break up that gets in the way of a renewed relationship some years later. Alex, the man at fault for the break up, gets desperate and pulls sneaky stunts to force his love interest, Jacob, to see him, because Jacob makes it clear in no uncertain terms he will not entertain the idea of renewing the relationship. But circumstances alter to make Alex show his vulnerable side, and Jacob... Ok, not saying anymore except this is a story that draws you in because you wonder just what Alex will pull next and just what Jacob will do about it.

The fourth story, Dirty Martini by Bette Brown, was more about a man getting a second chance at love than at fixing the relationship that just failed. There's some nice writing in there and some sweet scenes. I really liked the bartender, I mean really liked him. Really, really liked him. Wish I had a skill to draw, because I'd have drawn him the second I finished reading the story.

The second short, Heart of Glass by L.J. Harris, had a plot I really wished was better executed.

Two of these, Dirty Martini and Notice to Appear, were a good read. I didn't care for the rest of the stories. They just did nothing to interest me and would have been better left out.
