Vee Hoffman, thrift store fashion enthusiast and unapologetic crazy cat lady, has been creating fictional worlds since her teens. She has lovingly honed her unique style of character study over ten years of writing in the online community, learning (eagerly, and sometimes embarrassingly) from the school of slash fanfiction in the early Internet Age. Putting those lessons to work, she debuts with “Acclamation,” part one of a four part series, at age 31.
A sometime music journalist, she indulges her critical side with the occasional
vlog or guest article on Japanese pop music, hoping the day will come when someone actually asks for her opinion on AKB48. When not writing, Vee can usually be found browsing Tumblr at 3:00AM, getting emotional over posts about Doctor Who with red wine in hand.

So there I was trying to get my M/M Romance groove back when I remembered I had a little treasure saved up on my library.
My goodness, what a way to get back into the genre!
I sooooo want to hug Vee Hoffman for giving me insight into Dominic's thoughts and feelings. If I had anything to complain about the previous books (and even then I didn't) it would have been the fact that I still had not had the chance to know firsthand how Dominic was dealing with his relationship with Michael.
Vee outdid herself with this snippet into Dominic and Michael's weekend. She brought an overwhelming range of emotions to the page that helped me to fully understand how deep the connection between these two is and how Dominic has grown into a matured, young man. Through his thoughts, I could see that he is open in exploring everything that his relationship with Michael entails. I saw how loyal he is to him and that his emotions run deeper that just a school boy's crush on his teacher. Yes, I had assumed this was the case, but it is so much better to be certain! I loved it. I could feel Dominic's need for Michael - his passion, his love. But most of all I got to see Michael through Dominic's eyes.
Sublimation was everything I wanted and then some! With only 38 pages Vee Hoffman has ratcheted up my need for more Dominic and Micheal. As I said before, I am emotionally invested in this couple and this short story just added to my obsession need to see them achieve their happily ever after.
