5.0 out of 5 stars LOVE TRUMPS AGE, October 4, 2012
This review is from: A Younger Man (Kindle Edition)
A Younger Man is the tender story of Noah who is gay--separated with two teenage sons--and Zane, 25 who looks after his younger brother and sister. When Zane is evicted, Noah comes to his rescue providing both hospitality and employment for him. It is not long before they both have feelings for each other and about a third of the novel, smoulders with incipient sexual desire building to an almost unbearable tension for both the characterS and the reader. Finally, both men are able express their love for each other. We learn that Zane is in debt to Clint who from time to time demands repayment; Zane does his utmost to pay off this debt, by working two jobs. Soon the immediate family of both Noah and Zane become friends, and all realise the love and passion Noah and Zane have for each other. when Noah falls sick,Zane cares for him lovingly. However, Zane's aunt Patty is uncertain whether Zane is caring for his siblings and after visiting him, eventually sends incriminatory photographs of Zane and Noah together, in an attempt to win custody of the children. Fearing for their relationship, Noah has no choice but to approach his distant father -a retired lawyer---for help. From here, the novel races on to an exciting climax, carrying the reader breathlessly to the end.
Cameron Dane has written a tender, involving novel. The reader is caught up in both the joys and sorrows of the two protagonists. The love scenes are beautifully and realistically described and certainly this is pornography---in the true sense of the word---at its best.

5.0 out of 5 stars Blazing hot, July 8, 2012
This review is from: Hot Head (Kindle Edition)
Dante Anastagio and Griff work for the FDNY; they had been friends forever and shared experiences over the years--even making out with girls together. Griff's mother has died and his father seems indifferent to his son, so Griff naturally gravitated to the warm, accepting Anastagio family; it was said that Dante and Griff were almost like brothers. However Griff holds a dark secret--he loves Dante. They both love their work at the FDNY, but Griff's turmoil inside concerning Dante causes him to question his own sexuality. He had been married, yet has almost uncontrollable feelings for his best friend. He visits a bar and to his surprise, sees one of his FDNY colleagues having sex with a guy in the alley. He is both shocked, and aroused. When Dante has trouble financing his house, he enters upon a business deal which both appalls yet excites Griff. It is not long before Dante convinces Griff that he join in; Griff agrees to reluctantly, but only to help Dante out financially, but by doing so, finds himself in under almost intolerable pressure. After the success of the money making scheme, Griff feels guilt and manages to arrange another deal with the business man, involving him alone. Overwhelmed by his feelings for Dante, he eventually confesses his love to him, only to discover that Dante had felt the same way. Events are finally resolved at a thanksgiving dinner where Dante and Griff declare their love for each other openly.
Damon Suede has written a beautifully tender and erotic novel. Set in the shadow of 9/11, we learn of the dangers fire-fighters endure, including Dante. The reader is caught up with the two main characters, and the story is enhanced by the portrayal of other characters such as 'Tommy' ,Sticky' and 'Alex'. The way the sexual aspects of the novel are described is nothing short of masterly. The writing is fluent and convincing. There is tension; there is tenderness; there is heartache; there is humour. No-one reading this novel will be disappointed, and I for one, am hungry for more.

Muscling Through
Muscling Through
Price: $2.66

5.0 out of 5 stars Unexpected Love, June 21, 2012
This review is from: Muscling Through (Kindle Edition)
Muscling Through is an endearing story between two unlikely protagonists: Larry a Cambridge professor and Al, who earns his living punting. From a surprise meeting, a relationship grows between them and eventually they fall in love. Written from Al's point of view, which is down to earth, straight forward, tender and at times funny, we learn much about both characters, especially Al's talent for painting. This brings much joy but also, because of a misunderstanding, eventual heartache.
J.L.Merrow's writing is both compassionate and persuasive, as the reader shares in Larry and Al's love and their physical manifestations of that love. The story is utterly credible, and with the engaging characters of Larry and Al, and the latter's outrageous but wonderfully likeable mother, Lizzie, the novel makes for a most satisfying read.
Perhaps the greatest compliment I could make is that when I finished the book, I was sorry it had ended. I will certainly be reading more of this author's work.

5.0 out of 5 stars Island love, 9 Jun 2012
By Alphington - See all my reviewsAmazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Scrap Metal (Kindle Edition)
Scrap Metal is a beautifully written novel set on the Scottish island of Arran. Nicol lives on the farm run by his curmudgeon of a Grandfather Harry who has no hesitation in showing that he preferred Nicol's deceased brother to himself.
Nicol's life changes forever when on the night of a severe storm, he finds a stranger in the barn. It is not long before Nicol, and the stranger, Cameron, share a love that dares not speak its name. Their idyllic relationship is blasted when someone from Cameron's past makes an appearance, seeking to reek revenge on Cameron. The reader is carried along breathlessly to the end of the novel as Cameron tries to exorcise the ghosts of his past.
Harper Fox writes beautiful prose and we are treated to colourful descriptions of the island of Arran. She also writes tenderly about the love between Nicol and Cameron as well as the the difficult relationship, between Nicol and his grandfather.
This is the first I have read of Harper Fox's novel---and I can't wait to read another. Highly recommended!


Along The Stars (Orange Bitter Book 2)
Along The Stars (Orange Bitter Book 2)

5.0 out of 5 stars On a higher plane, May 13, 2012
Sequels rarely equal prequels, but Along the Stars surpasses its predecessor. Roughly twelve years have passed since the end of Orange Bitter, Orange Sweet. Borkja and James are still a couple now living in England, where the former is about to become a qualified pilot, and James is a theatre manager. A death in the family calls Borja home to Spain where he learns an interesting revelation from his younger namesake. Meanwhile young Nick appears on the scene and smouldering relationship occurs between him and James. Then Borka meets Andy which adds complications to his personal life, as well as the implications of James' relationship with Nick. A subplot between Alexa who is in love with Mark adds to the intrigue.
Characterised by beautiful writing, Along the Stars is humourous with the flamboyant Neville, exciting as Borka and Andy attempt to land the plane at Malaga and full of romantic tension as the various characters play out their relationships.
As with all Anthony McDonald's novels their are vivid descriptions of the counties and their culture where the characters are found, as well as, in this novel, fascinating accounts of flying, theatre productions and inter-personal relationships.
We eagerly await Anthony's next novel.


Orange Bitter, Orange Sweet
Orange Bitter, Orange Sweet

5.0 out of 5 stars 'Furnace of Passion', May 1, 2012
This is how your review will appear:

Orange Bitter, Orange Sweet is an engaging novel set in picturesque Spain.
When Pippa takes up a teaching post in Seville, she meets a miscellany of interesting people--Jeanette, the musical Alexa, Karsten, James and Borja who are a couple, and Mark. Dynamic events occur--Pippa falls in love with Mark, and James and Borja's relationship gets into difficulties when each takes on a lover. This complication forms the central part of the story and the reader becomes involved in both the triumphs and the tragedy of their relationships, as well as those of the other characters.
As with his other novels, the backdrop is one of the characters in the book and we are treated to evocative descriptions of both Spain and her culture.
Anthony McDonald is a beautiful writer whose prose sparkles like sunshine on water.
A highly recommendable novel

5.0 out of 5 stars Sealed with a kiss, January 15, 2012
When innocent, vulnerable Billy is caught kissing his hero Rourke, by his abusive, possessive and homophobic brother, he is given a severe beating by Clem. Billy learns that Clem is out to hurt Rourke and the rest of the Blaecleah family and so goes to warn them. Rourke discovers him and from there, develops a beautiful love story between the two lads. Rourke convinces Billy to stay, and he is accepted by the whole family---so much so, that he is actually given a job on the farm. Problems occur when the Sheriff arrives with Billy's father Ira, the latter claiming that Billy is being held by the Blaecleahs against his will. To save Rourke going to prison on a false charge, Billy agrees to go home with his father. Devastated, Rourke is determined to bring Billy back.
This is a sensitive, beautifully written novel, where the reader is immediately caught up with the characters, sharing their joys and sorrows. The love scenes are both erotic and tastefully described.
This is my first introduction to the writings of Stormy Glenn and frankly I can't wait to read some more.


Getting Orlando
Getting Orlando
by Anthony McDonald
Edition: Paperback
15 used & new from $22.96

5.0 out of 5 stars An involving love story, January 8, 2012
This review is from: Getting Orlando (Paperback)
Getting Orlando is an involving love story as well as an exciting novel. Oliver, in his 30's is attracted to Orlando, in his 20's, from first seeing him on a train. By a clever plot line, they both meet on a teaching course they are taking. From here, their love story develops and through a series of dodgy yet exciting jobs, they are thrust into difficult circumstances which inevitably causes their separation. The final part of the novel deals with Oliver's search for Orlando.
Anthony MacDonald writes about real people and credible situations, and many times in the novel I found myself saying, 'I think/know/feel that' which means I was totally involved with both the characters and the plot. The colourful descriptions of the countries visited and their culture greatly enhance the novel; however it is the plot which carries the reader breathlessly to the end of this wonderfully sensitive and engaging story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surpasses its predecessor, January 8, 2012
This review is from: Blue Sky Adam (Paperback)
Adam, Michael and Sean whom we met in the first of the series, are sharing a flat in London. Adam receives word of a legacy left to him in France, and goes to visit the property; while there he meets the attractive Stephane and enters into a relationship. Michael and Sean visit Adam and when Sean is offered to live with Adam on the property, he turns him down, much to Adam's disappointment. By chance Adam meets a previous lover, Sylvain, whom he had known a few years before in France. From there, follows a complex web of human relationships.

Fortunately, Adam's ability with `cello stands him in good stead and while he is learning viticulture, he is also involved in playing in a series of concerts with two of France's notable musicians. However, the interplay between Adam, Stephane and Sylvain runs into difficulties and there is antipathy from the locals. Adam's blue sky becomes increasingly stormy and when Sylvain leaves the property, Adam is distraught. A surprise visit from Michael, who tells Adam some necessary home truths, opens Adam's eyes, and he determines to find Sylvain to make reparation.

Anthony McDonald writes with sensitivity and realism, and readers will be caught up in the joys and sorrows of the characters. Adam's loves and adventures makes for involving reading and along with his interesting and impressive knowledge of music, the French countryside and viticulture, we have two books in one.. Uncharacteristically, this is one sequel, which in my opinion surpasses the original and leaves the reader yearning for more.
