I liked this story a whole heck of a lot.
While on the surface I have almost nothing in common with these characters - I'm not male, British, in my twenties, have a great affinity for animals, gaming, roller skating, or public humiliation dancing - Max and Stefan wormed their way into my heart almost instantly. By the time Max started to feel his first flutterings of same-sex sexual awareness, I was completely invested in them and their happily ever after. My heart literally clutched when they were apart. That's the sign of a really great story, don't you think? One that causes its readers to have a physical
reaction to it?
While there were some tender kisses, and a sweet, soapy hand job (and I was fully expecting it given Stefan's "Slowly. Slowly" mantra), I'm forced to acknowledge my inner horn dog and give the story -1 Strength point for no on the page penetration. (Sorry, Lori, it's totally a "it's not you, it's me" situation because I thought that what you did
do with your boys on the page, and how their relationship progressed, was perfection).
My thanks to the sassy Brit for participating in the Love's Landscapes event (not once, but twice!) and for all of the behind-the-scenes work that editors, beta readers, and the MM Group Mods put into making this FREE event a massive success! And also a big thanks to the fabulous Natasha Snow who keeps churning out my most favouritest covers for these tales. THANKS, GUYS!
