I love reading books. For the past 2 years I've focused on gay novels. If only I had enough time to read everything I want...

  • Free To Fly on Dec. 30, 2011

    It was an interesting story. It's a pity it was so short. I felt the characters could have benefited from a more extensive description as well as their story and the development of their relationship. Their timid introduction into D/S territory was sweet. There was no perfect timing and role-playing after a preestablished script, there were odd moments when they had to step out of character and both were unsure on how to tread forward. I needed a bit more information to be sure this was something Vincent also wanted. But it definitely seemed to be just the right thing to strengthen their relationship and keep them together.
  • Forgotten Soul (Book 1 of the Soul Reader Series) on Nov. 22, 2012

    This was a quick little story with interesting development. I had envisioned the two of them on the run, trying to understand the new situation they were in, explore new possibilities as well as confront the deepening feelings between them. So, all in all, 3.5 star rating for originality and good characters but not enough adrenaline to make me readily move on to the sequel.
  • Tinsel is like Bondage for Trees on Dec. 15, 2012

    It was such a funny short story! Logan drags Harry to Conneticut to spend Christmas with his family. While both expect to play the role of eomployer and employee, Harry soon discovers that the whole family knows Logan is gay and is merely humoring his whims. And this makes for embarrassing, awkward but also amusing situations between Harry and various members of the family. Coupled with Logan's attempts to look after Harry's Christmas tree, it all shines with Christmas feel and happiness. Isa has a magical way with words and Harry is still a favourite character. Though short, the story is wonderful and quite in-sync with the winter holidays. Though you'd probably need to read The Condor to fully appreciate it.
  • There's Cock In This Book (The Hockey Story) on Dec. 15, 2012

    A lovely short story about a gay young man who purposefully hides his sexual preference as it would only hinder his interaction with the hokey team and his chances for a better team. Mac was lovely as a blushing virgin and his responses were charming. While Fritzy revealed the pleasures of gay sex, it was both amusing and adorable to watch Mac try to hide his inexperience and still enjoy the encounter. I think it would have helped to know a bit more about Mac as well, not just Fritz. Other than his decision to not come out to his teammates and view them as nothing more than that, we really don't know Mac's history. I'm hoping that might be elaborated in the sequel. It was a delectable short introduction for Mac and Fritz. I'm hoping they'll get they HEA in How To Quit Playing Hockey.
  • There Are Gay People Everywhere on Dec. 15, 2012

    This was a very delightful story. Too bad it ended so soon. There was an original twist to the story, of having Dillon project his sexuality onto all the other gymnasts. And so ignorant about the truth. He deserved to be shaken up back to reality. And the rough handling Max gave him was quite arousing and intense. The ending was equally surprising, with Max defending Dillon and admitting to maybe sharing the same closet. I'm curious how Isa would continue this and if there ever will be a sequel.
  • Corrupted on Dec. 26, 2012

    This proved to be a difficult read and a difficult one to rate. Had it been only for the feeling it left me with, I would have rated it somewhere between 1 and 2 stars. However, the story itself deserves 3 stars. I didn't like the characters. I found Bradley too attached to Justin, too stupid to realise he was being used and lead on only to ensure that Justin's every whim was fulfilled. It was hard to believe he was able to come from practically any touch or thought. I hated Justin for showing Bradley kindness sparsely, teasing him with something he knew Bradley desperately needed (who sits around with his privates exposed and still claim he's not gay?). I couldn't believe Tom and his gang would get away with stripping a guy naked at a gathering and then poor Bradley would actually have to stand naked in front of the entire assembly. And the final scene where Bradley ends up being raped by Tom (as I can't call that consensual) and Bradley doesn't seem affected, although he had vehemently and repeatedly stated he wanted Justin to be his first...only to have Justin end the book with asking for sexual favors, jockstrap included. Too weird for words. The reason I think this deserves 3 stars is because, although I found it hard to finish the story, it seemed believable. I could very well imagine this actually happening to someone. A guileless teenager being tricked into porn and being used by so called friends. I was left with a sour taste in my mouth after this. But it's still a probability that happens.
  • Dirty Zero on Dec. 28, 2012

    Wyatt was cute, in a geeky way, obsessed with comic books and dreaming of the hot stud colleague to notice him. Which he did. The party he was invited at Brian's house turned out to be a fantasy come true. There wasn't a lot of complexity to the plot or the characters but I was left with a nice feeling. So yeah, 3 stars.
  • Dirty Hero on Dec. 28, 2012

    Cute little sequel to Wyatt and Brian's adventures. It was hot reading about the two of them working through Wyatt's list of fantasies but also sweet to see them developing their relationship and even moving in together. Wonder if there will be more about them?
  • Dirty Play on Dec. 29, 2012

    Whit was funny in his geekiness. In fact both characters were a bit clumsy at seducing the other and their interactions didn't always play out as they imagined it. But it was sweet watching them blunder through first date and realise they liked each other and wanted to form a couple. 3.5 stars from me.
  • Dirty Drag on March 18, 2013

    The interaction between him and Rick was funny and arousing. You just had to laugh when seeing Rick try his best at being a gentleman, make it more than a one night stand and Ashley just ploughed through and did his best to dirty talk Rick into getting a blowjob. I would have liked the revelation scene slightly different. It was jammed in between other comments and felt slightly anti-climatic. But it worked as a short story and Rick and Ashley seem made for each other.
  • Dirty Drag 2: The Night Drags On on March 18, 2013

    I laughed out loud at the ending scene with the boob being held for ransom. Overall, however, I wasn't quite into it as the first installment. It was cute and sexually interesting and diversified - using feet and ass cheeks to get off - but I wasn't that drawn into the story as before. Ashley appeared a bit whiny and Rick suddenly in a hurry to leave and have a happy get together with the family, though he seemed interested enough in Ashley back at the bar. And thaat last bit with Jared and his one night stand felt totally out of place as well as TMI. Definitely did not find it sexy in reading about come in the ear. Eww.
  • Dirty Fighters on March 18, 2013

    This was short and dirty. And I liked it. I found Cross' charade funny (rather than annoying, as I usually do) and I was looking forward to seeing how Kyle would play out the scene. The jock strap was a nice addition and it definitely made things more hot for me. I'm waiting however, for a longer story where the characters can develop and the storyline gets more complex.
  • Dirty Boys on June 08, 2013

    Very cute and adorable! It was endearing how both characters were too shy to approach the other. You have to suspend reality a tiny bit to read this but it was cute. I'm happy with the ending.
  • Dirty Cop on June 08, 2013

    Very adorable short story! Conrad and Brayden make a great couple! The whole role playing act of fleeing after being pulled over was great. Conrad was funny as hell, trying to bribe the dog, leaving the closet door open for the dog to chew on whatever and playing rock, paper, scissors. Liked him from the start. And the whole sex against the wall scene was really hot. I was a little put off when I saw Conrad just get it on with a stranger (and no condom) but then it dawned on me, the stranger was in fact his boyfriend. The ending scene really made it obvious how in love they were with each other and how committed they are. Really cute reading!
  • Nor Iron Bars a Cage on Oct. 01, 2013

    I was totally captivated by Lyon, by Tobin, by the story itself. I thought the characters were believable and took a liking to them almost immediately. And the plot... it just kept me hooked right till the end. And when I reached the final page, I wished there was a sequel. I was really in-sync with this story and sailed through the pages. If there was any discontent, it was too tiny to matter and easily forgotten. Quite a treat to offer for free! Thank you!
  • Like the Taste of Summer on Oct. 01, 2013

    That was perhaps one of the best short stories I've read in the "Don't Read in the Closet" series. It took only the first few paragraphs and I was already curious about the characters, wondering what would happen next, what their story would be, how they would turn out. It was an amazing journey. An example of love, friendship and committing to someone. Simply beautiful!
  • Unsettled Interlude - Hidden Wolves 1.15 on Oct. 01, 2013

    Lovely sequel to Unacceptable Risk. Laughed out loud at some of Simon's jokes. Really like his take on things. And I'm glad that I got to read more about this pair.
  • Unwanted Appeal - Hidden Wolves 2.5 on Oct. 01, 2013

    Well, this story had a punch to it. Very tightly wound and nicely done. I liked that Zach had a voice in this short story. Aaron came close to what I had envisioned him to be. Not as strong and pushy an Alpha as he could have been but better in his role. The addition of Cord to the pack, the spy debacle on top of internet security risk and disclosure threats made a packed reading. Quite enjoyed it! Hoping for a continuation of the series. 4.5 stars
