All I know is that as I read each short story and finished it - my reaction was "That was amazing!" Then I started and finished the next; and each one was just as good if not better than the last! Who knew that you could suffer a book hangover from a short story? I must now locate the rest of Ms. Simone's work so that I can reacquaint myself with the characters and their stories.
On a final note, I will end with this. Before I had even finished all of the stories I openly stated that this book went beyond "Steam" - it was Thermonuclear! All I was missing was a cigarette to smoke afterwards (if I was a smoker). Just seemed fitting.
Not gonna lie, these stories are 'towering inferno' level hot. But they are also so darn funny. Reese, in A Rational Man, might be my new favorite person ever. :) Sweet and loving and hysterical. Rich and Jonah, from Bet Your Axx, are so sexy, yet caring too.
An Honest Mistake....well, I wasn't sure I'd like this one. "Re-imagining" how Will and Daniel met? No thanks, I already know how they met and fell in love. I know those two very well from one of my favorite books, Aftermath. (Yes, I know these are characters in a book and didn't really meet...hush.) HOWEVER, this story is wonderful rendered. I enjoyed it all. Daniel was his usual transparent, vulnerable self which I love. It was a fun, incredibly sexy romp.
You can enjoy this book all in one sitting or savor each story in coffee-break sized chunks. No matter which way you read it, you will enjoy it!
The other 3 stories were all new to me and I was just wowed by the distinct and uniqueness of each of them. I especially LOVED the one story, A Rational Man. While it is about a polyamory scenario with six very different men who have worked, lived and loved together, it centers around one man's problem about body self image and acceptance that stems back to his childhood. Ms. Simone really went all out with this story and it had all of the feels, a great message and a touch of steam added in. I cannot wait for her next adventure!
I voluntarily read an Advanced Reader Copy of this book.
I wish/hope some of the others will be expended on, turned into novels or at least novellas- a few have quite a bit of potential!
I really enjoyed Bets Are Off, that's one I liked to see more of the characters.
Owen, in a Rational Man, kind of stole my heart!
Barrett ad Josh in The Duet- so sweet!
I really liked that each of these stories was so different.
Borrowed through KU.
