I have 2 new M/M novellas for you, today. Enjoy!
Right Street, Wrong House
Author: Pender Mackie
Publisher: Silver Publishing
October 29th 2011
Lewis goes to a
Halloween party to try to meet someone new and get over his feelings for
his friend Dylan. When he goes to the wrong party, he discovers why
Dylan won't date him. But Lewis has secrets too, and maybe they might be
more compatible than Dylan thinks.
Right Street, Wrong House is the latest novella by Pender Mackie. I really enjoyed her first one, Scent of Attraction. I was eagerly waiting for her new story and I was not disappointed. Lewis has been in love with his friend Dylan for years, but he decides that he can't wait around forever for his to return his affections. It is time to get out and meet new people. One simple twist of fate, brings him face to face with the object of his desire.
I really liked Lewis and Dylan. I think the thing that appealed to me the most is that they have been friends for so long. Their attraction felt very real and not forced. This is a quick read and I won't spoil it for you. I'll just say that it is a great story that will leave you smiling in the end.
Roping His Man
Author: Simone Anderson
Publisher: Total E-Bound
When a vacation yields an unexpected surprise, choices must be made and love hangs in the balance.
When Colton Greenleaf returns to his parents buffalo ranch after
college, he doesn’t count on long-buried feelings resurfacing or the
pull of the Wyoming mountains luring him home to stay. He tells himself
its only for two weeks, that he can put up with anything for two weeks.
But, when he comes face to face with the man of his dreams his first
night home, he isn’t so sure. Now, he must figure out whether to take
the chance on love or follow his life plan and face losing out on love
Emmanuel Keegan, known only as Hawk, knows that he is ready to
settle down. The only problem is that the man he wants is twelve years
younger and the boss’ only son. Not only that, Colt doesn’t plan on
sticking around any longer than he has to. Hawk knows following his
heart’s desire could make him the happiest man on earth or it could
shatter his heart for all time.
Simone Anderson is a new to me author. While she has written several other short stories, this is the only one that I have read. I enjoyed Roping His Man. Both characters were very real to me. I liked Hawk's character and could understand his reservations about getting involved with Colton, especially given the age gap between the two of them. I think Colton had a bit of growing up to do before Hawk could commit.
Roping His Man is a very quick read. It is well written with steamy and tasteful love scenes. I loved the ending, but I won't spoil it for you. You will have to read to see if they can get their HEA. Ms. Anderson has a talent for writing and I look forward to reading more of her works.
