Smashwords book reviews by Iann Marten

  • Truck Stop on Oct. 07, 2022

    Well written. Easy read. The author "painted" a picture that put the reader steps away from the two men. Every important detail in the cab was included in the story. Enjoyed the read very much. Anxious to read more of his works. The two men come to life in the story. My hope is that the author writes more stories. He's a great story teller. I don't think you will be disappointed if you read this story. I generally read this kind of story once. I'll be reading this story again and again.
  • Paranoid: My True Story on Oct. 09, 2022

    This piece will rip your heart out. The author says a lot in very few words. It's as personal as personal can be. The author exposes a slice-of-life during a very dark time. The reader doesn't know what happens after the piece was written. As I said, this piece will rip your heart out. I highly recommend reading this work. It leaves many unanswered questions and may even cause your to cry for the author. This piece presents a very powerful message in just a few words.
  • Tunnel of Love: Uncut on Oct. 11, 2022

    I maxed out the number of stars I wish there were more. Had the max been 1000 this piece would get them all. The author plunges the reader into the middle of a love story. Grabs you by the throat and leads you through the story with love, compassion, and intense passion, but most of all love. The two men in the story are of one mind and that is love. It's a very easy read. I didn't want to set it done to come back later. I wanted to read it in one sitting. I wanted the story to go on forever. The author will show you a side of yourself that you may have forgotten could be. The story is tender, caring, loving. I cannot recommend the story strong enough. I hope that there is a sequel. The story is that good!
  • Mr. Wallace on Oct. 11, 2022

    The author puts you right there with the characters. The student's fantasy is detailed and very well written almost to the color of the chairs in the office. The instructor's every physical feature is detailed. It's a quick read and erotic. I think you'll enjoy the story. Something to think about next time you're in a group shower and someone drops the soap.
  • Cruising Curry Park on Oct. 12, 2022

    Curry Park is an easy read and a delight with a little suspense. The author takes us on a journey to a park used for cruising only he didn't know that at the time. A year or so later cruising was the reason he went there. He evaluated the possibilities. He knew his type and would not settle. The rest of the story builds to a dramatic crescendo. It's a good story and easily read in one sitting. The author will delight you with this and his other stories.
  • The Crisco King on Oct. 12, 2022

    The author has written another great story. It's a quick read and it's erotic. The author invites you into the story as he's considering leading his own life away from the immediate family. The author meets Bob Wheeler and then much the author calls Bob. it's a great story and it's different from the author's other stories. I enjoyed the story very much and I think you will, too. Bob is a fun guy and the author has a built in thrill factor. Do yourself a favor and read Bob Wheeler - The Crisco King.
  • Psycho Cocksucker on Oct. 15, 2022

    The author shows us a man that is exceptional in the bedroom, but has a dark side. The author shows us that his buddy is a likeable guy and later we wonder if he's as likeable as we thought. The story will have you wondering. It makes you wonder about ulterior motives. The story will show you very intimate moments and some moments that... well I'll let the author tell you. It's a fast and easy read. I highly recommend it. You'll be satisfied and wanting more stories by the author.
  • Irresistible Me on Oct. 15, 2022

    It's a good story. The author shows you a guy that can get who he wants when he wants and not let it go to his head. It's an easy read. It was an enjoyable read. I recommend both the story and the author. I don't think you'll be disappointed.
  • Tent-Mates and Other Stories for 1-Handed Reading on Oct. 15, 2022

    I enjoyed the stories. Each was an easy read and each was enjoyable. I would buy from the author again and I recommend the book to you. The stories are varied from fantasy to plausible.
  • Straight Men Seduced 1 - Sauna Studs - A Gay Erotic Story on Oct. 16, 2022

    Good story. In the short time it takes to read the story you'll wish you were Even. Good author!
  • Luscious Love on Oct. 16, 2022

    It's a love story with a twist. It contains a few surprises. It's a quick read and light and satisfying.
  • Leather Larry (Dipping My Toes into the Kink Pool) on Oct. 21, 2022

    I like the author's work. His stories are easy to read, entertaining, erotic, and can be read in on sitting. Having said that, kink does not get me off. This story is closer to kink-lite than kink. The erotic bits are just that erotic and a joy to read. The randomness that brings these two men together is interesting. From there, hormones and personal preference lead the way. The author takes us on a journey into the unknown and the unexpected. It's a quick read, well written, and enticing. Kink isn't everyone's first choice, but for those that might consider sticking a toe in to test the waters you'll be pleased to know that there are no piranhas in this pool. For those that don't care for kink there's big something for you, too. The story has nothing to do with food, but sometimes it's nice to try a different seasoning than usual just to mix things up a bit.
  • The Us Festival (And the Naked Grizzly Bear) on Oct. 27, 2022

    This is a story about good times, music, hot mineral springs, and men. The author takes us on a journey along on a holiday to be remembered. It's a quick read, a one sitting read, and an enjoyable read. There are discoveries to be made and boundaries to be kept. There is understanding and tolerance. Highly recommended!
  • Rest Area Romp on Oct. 28, 2022

    The author has done it again! This time he spends a weekend with a guy after a very public and very personal delight time at a rest stop picnic table. What a picnic it was! The delights didn't end there! No, not at all. They picked up again over a weekend stay. The story can be read in one sitting. It's as though the author is sitting across the table from you telling the story. His writing is very conversational. Like all of his work, I highly recommend reading this story.
  • Video Chatting: Cu-Seeme on Nov. 07, 2022

    The author ventures into new territory in this story. He takes us into a backroom of an adult theater and tells us what goes on there. That's where the author met Harry. Free to use online live video connections were just becoming available and the author tells us about his experiences using this new medium in the privacy of his own home. Further into the story the author invites Harry over and the two of them put on quite a show for those in the "room" that the author has logged into. This is a very quick and easy read. The story is a good one. The author tells us a slice of life story. One of the many reasons I like the author is that his work is not only plausible, it's believable.
  • Audio Recording Awesomeness: 5 Things I Wish I’d Known As An Audio Newbie on Nov. 08, 2022

    Very helpful! There's more to it than a way to record and a mic. The author can get you started on a path that leads to success. We've all heard sound recorded on a windy day, or a mic that rubs against something while recording. The author points out some things that might be new to those not used to recording voice. Often people blame the mic for any recording issues. It might be, but it's more likely something else. If you want to record during a special family dinner where getting the same group together again will take an act of congress, consider some preparation and have a short read. The benefits are well worth it.
  • Hardcore Gay Erotica Vol. 9 on Nov. 10, 2022

    I liked the stories. Dick Powers writes very gratifying stories and these don't disappoint. highly recommended!
  • La-Bear: San Diego County Fair on Nov. 10, 2022

    The author has another great story! This one takes place at a few locations, one of them is very unexpected. I think you'll like the author's conversational style it makes reading very easy and it's a quick read. Highly recommended!
  • Anal Fucking Digest: Steamy, Kinky Gay Sex Stories on Nov. 11, 2022

    If you're looking for a written version of the good bits from a movie of a certain genre then look no further. This group of stories will provide the ground work for many entertaining evenings. Highly recommended. Will there be a sequel?
  • Kindred Spirits on Nov. 11, 2022

    Looking for a quick read before that shower? This is a very seductive bit that just might do that for you. It's a quick read. Filled with mystery and some very tasty bits. Highly recommended.
  • The Fluffer on Nov. 11, 2022

    I enjoyed the story. A friend turned out to be anything but. A lost cause became a success. This story is entertaining, suspenseful, and gratifying. It’s a good story, I think you’ll like it. Highly recommended.
  • Hustler Bar: 307 on Nov. 14, 2022

    The author takes us down a different path in this book. He hints at some warnings. He tells us about some very interesting men. In this story the author tells us something about the protagonist that drives home what he’s been telling us all along. It’s a short read and an easy read. He shows us a side of hustler bars that we don’t generally see. Highly recommended.
  • Blueprints to Building Your Own Voice-Over Studio on Nov. 14, 2022

    I haven't built it yet, but I sure will be very soon. There is more than meets the eye in the book. Angles are important even though they may sound odd. There's a reason for that as the author says, All of us have heard odd noises and echos in recordings. The author presents a way to stop those problems before they get recorded. That will save you a lot of post-production work. Sure you could record in a coat closet, but the author tells you why that won't produce the best results.
  • Straight Joe: Nude Full Body Massage on Nov. 16, 2022

    The author has another good one for us. It's a quick read, an easy read. You'll be done in one sitting or position of your choice. There is a difference this time however, it's not reciprocal, but just as erotic. There are one or two other surprises in store for you this time around. Highly recommended.
  • Taking Dick on Nov. 25, 2022

    Two men. Circumstances change, or do they? It’s a quick read. It’s a good read. Highly recommended.
  • Big, Beefy and Freaky on Nov. 25, 2022

    Obligatory after work drinks. Our protagonist is looking for any excuse to leave then at the last moment… It’s a good story, an easy read, and a quick read. There’s an unrelated nugget at the end that the author has added for you. Very highly recommended!
  • The Hitch-Hiker on Nov. 25, 2022
    (no rating)

    Great story, packed with surprises. I wish the rating system permitted more stars, but 5 is the maximum.
  • Mate Wanted for Christmas on Nov. 28, 2022

    Circumstances join two lonely souls momentarily. Is it a connection of convenience or something else? It’s a good story, a quick read. Definitely recommended.

    It’s a quick read and an easy read. The story is quite short. Alex gets a surprise. Very highly recommended!
  • The Repair Man and the Virgin - A Dirty Gay Story Part 1 on Nov. 28, 2022

    The story is well written and good. The two adult men are drawn to each other; one just old enough and the other experienced. The fiery lust between them is more than either can resist.
  • The Repair Man and the Virgin - A Dirty Gay Story Part 2 on Nov. 28, 2022

    The story quickly picks up from part 1. The author takes us on a slow journey through lust and desire. Building to a storm of massive proportions. Jobe gets Ricky and Ricky gets Jobe. This is a story about one man lusting for another and one man wanting to overpower the other. The two are very compatible. It’s a power game played by so many. The pleasure is deep and intense. That is what we see in the story. For those that like this type of power thing, you will definitely not be disappointed. It’s a well written story and I’ll be looking for more stories by the author.
  • Alec on Nov. 28, 2022

    Great novel. Suspense, and more, much more. Very highly recommended

    Very intense! Has an almost sinister appeal to it. Highly recommended!
  • Seducing the Straight Neighbor Part One on Dec. 05, 2022

    In fantasy anything is possible. It’s a great story if all you’re looking for is a younger adult male going after an older adult male.
  • Texas Chub: And the Three-Way on Jan. 22, 2023

    The author has a different point of view for this book than the others I've read. It's a good point of view, but not a clingy one. I like it actually. I find it fun and compatible. It was a very pleasant and satisfying read. I highly recommend it.
  • A New Beginning on Jan. 22, 2023

    Good story, but seemingly incomplete. I may buy others in the series at a later date.
