Well written and a bit of a surprise...,
This review is from: Serving Love (Paperback)
So this is a book of three novellas all based around romantic relationships between strong male characters. The first is an erotically charged fast paced story about a judge from a traditional conservative family and the ever charasmatic alpha male agent assigned to protect him when he is threatened; the last is a quirky story about a straight (ha!) laced young guy finding his romantic feet with someone his complete opposite and the middle one is about sailor vampires... (ah well 2 out 3 in a compilation isn't bad!)
Ok - here's the deal - I bought this book by accident without seeing the cover or reading the blurb. So I admit it came as a bit of a surprise that it was male male relationships... but I'm a devout reader and have never ever turned down a book without at least trying it...so how glad am I that the novellas were in the order they're in! If I'd started with the vampire sailor one I think I might have broken my cardinal rule and put this book down without giving it a fair shot - and I would have lost out as a result. The other two stories are well written, laced with humour and really appealingly romantic (I actually found myself being more moved by the romance and turning into such a weepy girl than in straight romances I've read). So in short if you are looking for a well written same sex romance or if you're a chick for whom stories about beautiful boys meeting other beautiful boys appeals, then this is for you and well worth a read. If you're looking for stories about vampire gay sailors from the 19th century then you're just weird.
