  • The Laws of Physics on July 08, 2014

    I can't write a review to do this story justice, not without whopping great spoilers, which kind of negates the purpose, as reviews are most useful to those who have yet to read a story. I don't usually read in the BDSM and D/s genres, because often the dom gets off far too much on the degradation and pain infliction. Consent is at best dubious - sure, the stories imply it's given, but I'm always doubtful, and I find that hard to reconcile. The opening chapter of The Laws of Physics sets up why consent and communication are so important. Freddy is a flutter-bye - shy, intelligent, geeky - he's actually adorable (not a word I use often, or possibly ever before), and Wolf is just wonderful - all manly-man protective and yet with such a vulnerable, gentle side. The sexy stuff is not my thing, but I imagine this is very erotic reading, if game play is to your tastes, and I did love it for its entertainment value, and also for the pure emotional connection and trust in the relationship. That, for me, is what sets this story apart from anything else in this genre. I actually, truly believed both characters were equal partners in this sexual relationship. A five star read for me is a story that drags me in, and keeps me there, watching, feeling, believing. I was there with Freddy and Wolf. I felt the love, the pain, the joy. Well done, C. Davis [...]. You definitely deserve a juicy bone for this. ;)

    This is wonderful, and I am beyond words. Thank you, Ayla Starr.

    Hilarious.
  • The Forest Savage on July 08, 2015

    I love Claire Davis and Al Stewart's work. All of it. I've read every story they've written and I can't pin down a favourite. I'd even struggle to rank them in order of preference, but if I did have a few hours to ponder, The Forest Savage would be right up there at the top of the list. First off, this is not fluffy MM romance. It is a romance, and the main characters are two gay men, but their story is a tough one, and it's very real. Claire and Al are clever authors. Whether it is their intention or not, their stories provide social commentary on British society, where social class is still a major structuring feature. In The Forest Savage, they tackle working class crime, which is not glamorous or exciting. It's grim and gritty, and it has many victims, including the friends, families and lovers of the offenders. There's no 'in your face' moralising or theorising. The authors just tell the story. The characters are beautifully drawn and fully fleshed out, and the sexy stuff is both erotic and emotional. The narrative flows smoothly, and the final chapter brings resolution and a HEA. Perfection. :) Thank you to the authors and the DRitC team for a wonderful FREE story - part of 'Love is an Open Road'.
  • If At First You Don't Succeed on Aug. 06, 2015

    This is one of the funniest, yet still erotic, stories I've ever read. It's a real challenge to write comedy, and KC Faelan's got the knack. I usually stick with vanilla-flavoured fiction, which this is not, but I'm OK with that, as the love our two main characters share shines through, as they explore their relationship together. Julien and Evan are just brilliant. But I NEED more Michael! A great read - hot and hilarious.
  • The Spot at the end of the World on July 18, 2016

    Utterly devastating story, simply and powerfully told. This is the hidden side of the life of refugees and something everyone who ignorantly brandishes the anti-asylum brush needs to read.
