Smashwords book reviews by Jurrendina

  • The Condor on April 12, 2013

    This is one of the best books I've read on Smashwords. I loved the protagonist Harry, but all the characters are so vividly portrayed. It's not the typical gay romance you seem to get - the trite story of gay couples overcoming the prejudice of their families and finding a perfect HEA. Instead, this story is funny and a little dark. The characters are very flawed but so wonderfully written that you can understand their motivations and like them anyway. The themes of S&M and prostitution are written in a sympathetic and un-sensational manner that makes it educational, understandable and a joy to read. I loved it. There's also a free story set after this one called 'Tinsel is like Bondage for Trees'.
  • Starlight on April 12, 2013

    This is a very well-written short story. I liked the combination of a werewolf with a vampire - nice to see something slightly unusual in the supernatural genre. Like the other reviewers, my only complaint is that it is too short.
  • Frustration on April 12, 2013

    This book is set in a high school for super-rich kids, but it's easy to identify with the characters. The level of friendship and relationship angst is just right. I do wish the author had given it more of a sense of place - I kept forgetting that they're in Ireland so I had to give them accents inside my head.
