Reviews of Loving a Straight Boy by Joseph Lance Tonlet

niyu reviewed on April 28, 2021

Hey, this book deserves so many more reads than it has. It's truly the best way one can describe a scene in only 12 pages! I wish someone would make a short film on this. Joseph, please keep writing.

This was a really fun and cheeky read. 2 BFFs since kindergarten (1 straight, the other gay) are watching TV together. I enjoyed how a push-pull dynamic was written between the compassionate/understanding straight man with clear boundaries while the gay man seeks to somehow test those boundaries. To me this work comes across as fantasy writing and I am unsure such a scenario can exist in real life, which makes this piece so interesting.

I love this author! I have read his published work and finding this piece makes me understand how well he writes and makes # pleasurethrudenial his hashtag.
Just 12 pages. Loved it

Hard to review a 12 pages long book, but let me try:
Pros: good description of the main character (incredible considering the length of the story) and nice writing style
Cons: pretty much an unbelievable situation, - the main character must be the king of masochists accepting all the crap his so-called best friend has been serving him for years.....
On the last page of the book, I read under the signature of the author the hashtag #pleasurethroughdenial; well this sums up quite well the essence of this short scene taken out of context of a long lasting relationship
