I loved it!
Sweet short story, a little snippet from Nick and Alex's lives and I definitely wouldn't mind to read more about them ;) The prequel of sorts you can find on the author's website here: Finding Comfort
Loved this book!
GA Hauser's stories can be a hit or miss for me and this one's definitely a hit! Strong characters, intense storyline, but without too much unnecessary prolonged angst (I'm for one happy how fast Mike's dealt with Carlos, for example).
Long, hot and very enjoyable read!
I love blue collar stories and this one was good enough, I didn't expect the beginning being so angsty, I felt so sorry for poor Josh and later on he and Zach had a good chemistry, although I wish there'd be more getting to know each other and actually talking instead of that tension thing, which was kinda overdone in my opinion.
Still enjoyed it though!
Well, I'm torn!
The writing was superb as usual with Ms Blackwell and I understand that it's a collection of short stories, but mostly they were just too short. Like only several pages, only a little teaser - and suddenly it ends :/ I remember the first anthology consisted of much more meaty stories. Don't get me wrong: I loved the characters, I loved the stories, but more often than not they felt like only a chapter from the real story.
And again I hate counting pages and such, but the epub file I bought consisted of 138 pages and only 101 of them were for stories, and the others were for experts from other works, which I've read already, so it was kind of a disappointment too.
Still waiting anxiously for the next volume, hope to see more of the guys, especially Luke and Dieter - damn, I love them so much, I hope they'd get their own novel someday ))))
