This anthology is all about emotions and heartstrings. And let me tell you, with stories like Kameron Mitchell's, "All the Wrong Numbers," Donovan Alexkzander Crane's Camp Kennevan, Piper Kay's "Joey's Choice," and Aaron Silver's "Letter from Sarah," your emotions and heartstrings are going to be rubbed completely raw.
This anthology was compiled for the purpose of donating to the Milwaukee LGBTQ Community Center. That may be the reason why it was compiled, but what it actually does is allow those of us who may not be directly affected by the struggle that LGBTQ youth often face to see how painful and dangerous life can be when the world tells you that everything about you is wrong or not good enough.
These stories will test the boundaries of your heart. Pick up a copy today!
A change of Heart
By Adan DePiaz
This was a really well written and captivating story. I couldn't put it down. I had the keep turning the pages to see what would happen next. Great writing, I would have paid a lot more for a full story about these boys. The author definitely left me wanting more. I looked and this author has no other works :-(
All the Wrong Numbers
By Kameron Mitchell
This was a sweet story, but very unrealistic in certain aspects. What wasn't unrealistic is the portrayal of Ivan's pastor father, who believes Ivan is a sinner because he loves Michael. The book had me skimming, to get past so much of Ivan's inner musings. I wanted more action scenes. It end with a HFN for the couple.
By Hope Ryan
This was so heartbreaking yet heartwarming as well. Andy, a 16 year old is living on the streets after his parents kick him out for coming out. At a soup kitchen he sees Will. A few days later he goes back and Will tries to talk to him, but Andy bolts. Hunger and the desire to see Will again brings him back. This was a great story. It was well written, flowed really well and never lagged. It was sweet and endearing. The characters worked hard for the HEA they got in this story, and the ending was so sweet :-)
Breath Of Life
By M. LeAnn Phoenix
I was confused most of the story there were too many secondary characters talked about in such a short story. I just don't have a lot to say about this story. It just wasn't for me. This is a very confusing insta love story
By Donavan Alekzander Crane
** 4.5 stars
This was a great read. Shane and Scott meet at Camp Kennevan, where they are counselors and cabin mates. Shane is a little pudgy, and Scott is a major Jock. Scott offers to teach Shane martial arts to help tone him up. Scott eventually tells Shane that he likes him. The feeling is mutual, but what happens when they go back home?
This was a very sweet story. I loved these boys. The story flowed well, and Shane and Scott had a really good connection. It ended with a HFN.
Dinner for the Dead

Five Down, Three To Go
By Victoria Kinnairf
Part of a series I didn't read
By Marcus Maichle
This was a sweet story. It takes place over the course of a few hours. Mark and Reed both hang out at the LGBT center. They go on a date and find they have nothing in common. When they walk back to the center they find they have more in common than they ever thought. This was a very short story. It wasn't bad, there just wasn't enough there. This story showed the two people can use their different Forte for the same cause.
By Piper Kay
** 5 stars
Piper wrote a story that left speechless. This is a story about making a choice. Choosing to live or die. This is a story for anyone suffering from depression and contemplating suicide. Sometimes this looks like the only way out, but something better may be around the corner, and if you don't make the right choice you'll miss it. Maybe you are put here to touch someone else's life. This was an awesome story!!! Great writing, and very captivating. It had me on the edge of my seat, turning each page to see what would happen next.
Letter from Sarah
By Aaron Silver
A beautiful letter to show someone can make a difference in your life.
By Tempeste O'Riley
This was a well written story, I just wish there would have been more of it. I would love to know where Micah and Perry go in the future.
My Book Boyfriend
By Elaine White
This was a sweet funny and heartwarming story. Wouldn't we all love to have a chance to enter another "plane", and if not to stay, at least get to know more about not only our favorite MC's, but the secondary characters! The writing was good and flowed well. A very light read compared to everything else in this analogy that I have read so far.
By Jocelyn Sanchez
Luke runs a art program, The Sanctuary for people struggling with different life issues. Carter is ordered by his therapist to take the class. Carter is a very broken guy, who uses his bad attitude to push people away to keep himself from getting hurt. Can Luke make a difference in Carters life?
This was very short and sweet. It was well written. I wasn't sure if I wanted to hug Carter or punch him. I loved that even for such a short story, the author not only gave us alternating POV's, We got a HEA epilogue as well.
Something to Hold on to
By Milla V.
This is a story of first love, and taking chances. There were no promises and no HEA's in this story. The girls are only 15, and at 15 you can't always promise forever. It was a sweet, short well written story.
The Queen Dethroned
By B. David Spicer
This was a good story, but left a lot of unresolved issues. It was interesting and well written. Monica and Ashley had a good chemistry, and I liked that the story featured a teacher that Ashley, who has a bad home life can turn too.
I loved this well written and heartwarming story about coming of age and self discovery.
All The Wrong Numbers: 5 stars
A mixture of serious situations and fairy tale like romance, this one pulled at my heartstrings and I loved it!
Blue Eyes: 5 stars
When rock bottom meets second chances, this is another example of how devastating coming out can be, I loved the serious reality of this story and how it was intertwined with a strong message of hope.
Breath of Life: 4 stars
A contemporary tale with hints of the paranormal, this one has a complex story line that is loosely based on the author's current series. I loved the message of love withstanding the test of time, but be prepared to read it with a box of puffs!
Camp Kennevan: 4 stars
This one was a bit of a hit and miss. I liked the way the two built their relationship in the beginning, but struggled with the choices they made in the middle and was left feeling rushed by the end.
Dinner for the Dead and Five Down, Three to Go are both mid-series novellas that both feature characters from series that I have not read so I am not reviewing these stories.
Forte': 3.5 stars
This one left me with an overall feeling of negativity. The conflict between Mark and Reed, along with the dark scenes overshadowed the positive ending and was a hard story to enjoy reading.
Joey's Choice: 5 stars
A shockingly written story reminiscent of 'A Christmas Carol' Joey's choice shook me to the core and depicted the stark reality of the impact of suicide on those left behind. With a positive message and unexpected ending, I loved this one!
Letter from Sarah: 4 stars
A short narrative; I loved the premise but would have liked to see more plot development.
Micah's Medicine: 5 stars
This was a fun one to read. I enjoyed the playful aspects of Micah and Perry's interactions and was fully entertained by this well written romantic comedy of errors.
My Book Boyfriend: 5 stars
Written with unique characters and an unexpected yet entertaining plot line, My Book Boyfriend gets points for development, quality and depth!
Sanctuary: 4 stars
This one really caught me by surprise. I was initially disappointing by the dark and deceptive story line but ended up loving the unique and surprising twists by the end.
Something to Hold on to: 5 stars
This was a fun and heartwarming tale about learning to let down your walls and open yourself to love. One of the few F/F stories in the anthology, I was impressed by the tender emotions and well developed story line.
The Queen Dethroned: 4.5 stars
Mean Girls meets the Three Musketeers in this tale of love and friendship that was awesomely written and entertaining from start to finish!
