A kiss in the Dark
I'm not surprised that I liked this one so much. I really don't recall if I've read a story that I haven't liked by Easton. The story was cute, somewhat predictable but still made me tingle. Highly recommend.
Calberg's House Specialty Blend
I really was happy that this had some twists. It was sweet, a little bland, but I enjoyed it for what it was. Recommend.
The Whole Kit and Kaboodle
I love cross-dresser stories. I'm biased. Completely. Highly recommend!
Le Beau Soleil
This one was...odd. I liked the story, but it felt out of place. It didn't really seem like a romance. There's no real romance, to start with. Unless having off-screen sex (or the sex scene was so bland I forgot it) twice makes it a romance. Considering the MC seemed willing to sleep with any guy he didn't have to pay for...I don't know. The mystery was predictable but it wasn't much else. Okay.
This one made me uncomfortable. I don't like manipulation, either. I don't know. It just left me feeling weird.
Cute and predictable. I was entertained. Recommend.
Made Good Under Pressure
The writing was odd to me for this story. It didn't bother me, since this is a short story. However. I detest manipulation. A lot. I hate it even more as a plot device. The 'tee-he-he! You got me!' reaction to finding out about the lie at the end makes me annoyed as well. The MC is supposed to be a street wise adult with connections to some shady stuff and he didn't see this lie? Seriously? I couldn't enjoy the couple getting together due to the lie told to get them to talk to one another. It really, really, REALLY ticks me off. Personal issue, obviously. If you don't care about manipulation, go for it. Maybe you'll tolerate it better than I.
Tempest for a Teacup
It was cute. I'm tempted to pick up other books by the author to see if it gives more backstory for the characters. Recommend.
This one was so sweet and short. A slice of life story that left me smiling and warm. Recommend!
Lawrence Frightengale Investigates
Very cute and warm and fuzzy ending. And a cross-dresser. Always a winner! Highly recommend!
Joie de Vivre
I was surprised that I enjoyed this one as much as I did. It was very sweet and left me smiling. Recommend!
Philip Collyer vs. the Cola Thief
I cannot believe I enjoyed this story as much as I did. I was geared up to dislike it as much as Made Good Under Pressure. Then the reactions happened. And I was pleased. The ending made the whole thing worth it. It was a little silly, but I've known people for going nuts over less important things. Highly recommend!
Overall, it's a good collection of stories. Only two that were a complete miss. Pretty good, really.
A kiss in the dark
Someone gets kissed when the lights go out, and we have to identify the mystery man. There's an interfering mother as well as the main characters.
Calberg's house specialty blend
A coffee shop disappears, and a former customer misses his favorite beverage. He gets what he needs in the end.
The whole kit and caboodle
Academia is the setting, and there's a drag queen involved. Usually I don't like cross-dressing, but this one was good.
Le beau soleil
The action takes place in New Orleans in 1855 and on a riverboat. The MC wants to quash some rumors that damage his reputation. Not my favorite.
A trick is played with good intent. This one made me uncomfortable.
I skimmed this story. It's about making money selling junk and paying back your partner.
Made good under pressure
This might have been my favorite story. I was even more impressed when I learned the author is only 21. One giveaway that she is not American was the airing cupboard in a New York apartment. I think that's a British thing, but maybe people here had them in 1921 when this story is set. Another thing that bothered me was the two men dancing together and making out in public. Wouldn't that have landed them in jail? Oh, and all the characters deliver multi-page perfectly worded speeches when conversing.
Ok, suspending my disbelief now. It's about two men who meet outside a dance hall plus a sister used solely as a device to get them together. The two men are from different social classes, which is the only thing keeping one of them from pursuing a relationship with the other. I was afraid it would dangle a possibility before us and end in regret, but thankfully the story continued a long while. It's pretty thin as a mystery, but as a romance it is beautiful.
Tempest for a teacup
Silly story about a lost dog.
Cute story about an introvert and the man he wants. One unresolved issue is a supposed boyfriend of the object of lust, who is not explained away by the end.
Lawrence Frighengale investigates
I skimmed this story about a drag queen, a missing car, a couple redheads, and old tv stars.
Joie de vivre
It took a few pages to get into this one, but by the end I was sad it was over. I would love a longer novel with the main characters.
Philip Collyer vs the cola thief
This author is the reason I bought the collection. Sadly no fantasy here, but still a fun story. Someone is stealing soda with good but mistaken intensions. All turns out well. This was well written and characterized, with lots of humor.
