5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Overview, 23 Aug 2011
This review is from: Tea and Crumpet (Paperback)
This book is just what you need if you want to know what talented M/M authors are out there. The opening story, Making Camp by Clare London, is just perfect to begin with. It is sweet and has an innocent subnote I really enjoyed. Most (not all!) stories in this book have a happy ending. Frozen Angel by Lisa Worrell is one of the opposite sort, or Silent Witness by Anna Marie May. Bittersweet is the word here, and the reader can look forward to them just as to the few F/F stories. Especially touching is Beside the Seaside by Lucy Felthouse. I could smell the salty air and feel the wind on my skin and at the end of it, I wanted to read more.
The two stories that impressed me most were Fantasy Man by Jay Rookwood and We'll always have Brighton #2 by Zahra Owens. The first, written by one of the few men in the genre, is ...different. The opening scene draws the reader right in, the description of the protagonists is spot on, and the plot screwed in a quite plausible way. Loved it from beginning to end!
Zahra's story, on the other hand, is different, too. The main character has cheated on his one true love, which is a surprising setting, at least in this anthology, where we find first times quite often. This one has a touch of finality that left me pondering about relationships for quite a while. Loved it just as well, and looking forward to read more of Zahra's writing.
So to sum up: get the book and read the stories!
