Reviews of The Duke and the Deadbeat by Gregory L. Norris

Fix81 reviewed on July 15, 2022

I discovered this author earlier this year after going through a phase of reading old gay erotica anthologies. Along with Thom Wolf and T. Hitman, Norris's work stood out as the hottest by a scorching mile. But what gives Norris the edge is his work is also incredibly well-written. So when I saw that he had written novels I knew I had to give one a try.

This book did not disappoint. It is every bit as sexy and hot as his shorter erotica work, and just as well-written. Anyone looking for a hot romance with a strong male POV then I recommend reading The Duke and the Deadbeat. I will be reading more by this author if I can find more of his work. Five stars.
