1. Bodywork By Ashe Barker
Alex: sweet and young
Graham: too mired in his past.
2. Breaking the Marine By M.K. Elliott
Brandon: I liked his grit
Will: made the story very interesting, but then it needed a better ending
3. Love on Location by Lucy Felthouse
Theo: sweet and slightly geeky for an actor
Eddie: Great guy for Theo, and oh I hope these two make it and are happily in love for ever after.
4. Landscapes By K D Grace: This was the dud for me, I could not make head or tails of what was going on, and I did not like it.
5. The Chase By Lily Harlem
Robert: another sweetheart. I have no problem with reading MMM but I wish this had just been MM
6. Dish of the Day By Clare London
Ben: hottie that just needed a bit of a ruffle
Craig: funny and the glue that held this MMM (this one was great) together.
7. E2 By Sarah Masters: just weird and more about world building than anything else
8. Locked Out By Josephine Myles
Rod: the best man for Martin. This one was the best of the bunch, JM does not write a disappointing romance it seems, and is capable of wrapping up a story within a short length and satisfying this reader every single time!
All the books have sex on the page, and it is totally steamy. Below are some quick reviews of each story. Beware: There's a whole lotta manlove going on, and I adored every word of it.
Contemporary Boy on Boy:
Bodywork by Ashe Barker puts Graham in the path of Alex, quite literally. A fender-bender links these two lonely men with each other in a way that transcends the accidental. Of course, secrets from the past creep in, but love wins out...eventually.
Breaking The Marine by MK Elliott is a military romance. Brandon enlists in the Marines to escape an empty life heading for prison. He meets a random stranger, Will, the night before boot camp, and their tryst is hot and quick--with no plan to re-engage. Unfortunately, Drill Instructor Will Stewart wasn't prepared to have Brandon in his service. The tension is high, and the passion simmers as these two continue clandestine relations. Going Commando was never so hot.
Love on Location by Lucy Felthouse matches rising star Theo Samuels with a cast extra, Eddie. Problem? Theo is closeted, and he can't imagine a relationship with the demands of his acting schedule. Eddie's younger and not out, either. Plus, he's essentially jobless and not sure of his career path. There's a bit of kerfuffle regarding the state of attraction, but the end result is bliss.
Locked Out by Josephine Myles puts a timid kindergarten teacher in the role of aggressor. Martin spends his Valentine's consoling his sister--after her dramatic break-up--at a posh hotel.Read more ›
Bodywork by Ashe Barker, reviewed by Lena Grey
Alex, of 'Bodywork' by Ashe Barker, is on his way to attend a mandatory traffic class when he decides to stop at the supermarket. Since he's in a rush, he isn't paying proper attention and runs into another man's car. The accident isn't a good thing, but the handsome man, named Graham, whose car Alex wrecked, definitely is. Since he is a mechanic, he offers to fix the car and Graham accepts. The next day, when Graham brings around the car, they settle into some steamy, yet emotional sexual intimacy which leaves them both feeling more than they normally feel for another man. But then a misunderstanding leads Alex to believe Graham has been lying to him, and it looks as if everything will fall apart.
This is a very emotional story showing what can happen when one is not honest with someone with whom they are in a relationship with. It's very well-written and I loved the secondary characters; they added so much substance to the story making it even more interesting. Had Graham told Alex the truth to begin with, all of the angst and pain of separation they felt never would have happened. Graham's actions showed his insecurity and seemed like a lack of trust which Alex knew he didn't deserve, but Alex's quick temper; his jumping to conclusions and not letting him explain only added to the misunderstanding. Thanks, Ashe, for the passionate, angsty story and for the happy ending.

I liked "Locked Out" by Josephine Myles. A short story with good characters and story line. The other stories were mostly a bit of erotica, and if that's what you like, OK.Published 17 months ago by Xanlthorpe
