    From the critically acclaimed writer, Michael Thomas Ford, comes a highly anticipated first novel that follows the intertwining lives of three men, set against the backdrop of summer-time in the breezy coastal community of Provincetown.

    I'm fast becoming a Michael Thomas Ford fan. An idilic view of life in Provincetown, a best case scenario for a gay movie super star and an instant family for an middle aged lesbian.

    It hasn't been easy, but horse trainer Dan Wheeler is beginning to build a new life for himself, finding his place in California with his lovers Evan Kaminski and Jeff Stevens. When things are going well, it's spectacular: there's affection, humor, and passion. But things don't seem to go well all that often. Dan continues to struggle with the loss of his previous lover and sometimes doubts that he even deserves to be happy; Evan is jealous of every rival for Dan's attention - including Jeff; and Jeff worries that he's too old for the younger men and wonders if he should bow out completely.

    Story

    This book picks up the plot directly after book one. The threesome is still new and the boys test it's boundaries and rules in this next instalment. Chris' character features a lot more in this book, and to be honest, the plot twist I'd been hoping for, never materialised.
    An ex hookup of Dan's strains the relationship and the on off on off cycle continues.

    Now for my plot twist:
    Seeing we're in the fantasy realm of billionaire / artist / horseman happy triad, wouldn't it be interesting if Chris, Dan's best mate ever, moves to LA and professes his love for Dan? A bit twee, I grant you, but that's what a fantasy plot twist is all about.

    Evan Costa learned from a very early age that there was no such thing as unconditional love and that it was better to settle for what you could get instead of expecting the world to give you what you need. As Ethan, porn model for Johnnies, he gets exactly what he wants - comradeship and physical contact on trade -and he is perfectly satisfied with that. He's sure of it.

    Dan thinks about just driving, leaving the whole mess behind. He's got enough money. He could just arrange to get his stuff and his horse shipped to wherever he's going. Taking off is what he used to do when things got to be too much, and it worked pretty well, really.

    I bought this book based on a recommendation from Reeva, who's opinions I've begun to appreciate.
    While I'm still not sure that I get the emotional mechanics of a MMM relationship, the author handles it with aplomb. In the end, I think the relationship ends up being pretty stylised, but not so much that it's not realistic.
    The mechanics of the sexual relationship in the MMM triad are expertly handled. What has the potential to overwhelm the plot, adds to it in many ways.
    A long book, that feels like it flies by. Don't miss out, buy this book.

    Do you believe in love at first sight? Paul Auster doesn't. Paul doesn't believe in much at all. He's thirty, slightly overweight, and his best features are his acerbic wit and the color commentary he provides as life passes him by. His closest friends are a two-legged dog named Wheels and a quasibipolar drag queen named Helena Handbasket. He works a dead-end job in a soul-sucking cubicle, and if his grandmother's homophobic parrot insults him one more time, Paul is going to wring its stupid neck.

    From the same author as "Bear, Otter and the Kid" which I absolutely adored. Funny, what I found MOST endearing about "Bear, Otter and the Kid", is what I liked leased about this book -the wanderings of the protagonist's mind.
    That said, it's a great read with a seldom explored plot line - what happens when the perfect man falls for a slightly insecure, broad around the middle, Average Joe? Worth a credit, absolutely!

    House-sitting for a friend is supposed to be a lucky break for Aiden Daly. Discovering his new housemate is the image of his first crush turns it into a nightmare. Marco de Luca is obviously interested in being more than housemates, but his resemblance to Aiden's ideal man seems only skin-deep. Besides, Aiden doesn't date.

    The plot is nicely set up in the previous book, so it's no surprise how and why this book comes about. It's a good follow up book in the series, and worth a credit.

    Ten years ago David Worral had plans to go to college and the potential for a beautiful future in front of him. One tragic accident later, he fled to California and reinvented himself as Dex, top porn model of Johnnies. Dex's life is a tangled mess now, but the guys he works with only see the man who makes them believe even porn stars can lead normal lives. When Kane, one of Dex's coworkers, gets kicked out of his house, the least Dex can do is give him a place to stay.

    Many time, I've wanted to know what happens after. Some stories end too soon, and you're left wondering what happened next. This one, suffers the reverse. A brilliant story, well written, expertly performed and a joy to listen to. The plot wraps up, and then it goes on. And on. It would be improved by dropping the last two hours of the book.

    All that said, it's more than worth a credit. It's great and I look forward to more from the author.

    Nobody knows the real Chase. Chase Summers has a razor blade to his wrist and the smell of his lover's goodbye clinging to his skin. He has a door in his heart so frightening he'd rather die than open it, and the lies he's used to block it shut are thinning with every forbidden touch. Chase has spent his entire life unraveling, and his decision to set his sexuality free in secret has only torn his mind apart faster.

    Life has never been easy for Duncan Stiel. His childhood was the stuff of nightmares, and his day job as an undercover police officer forces him to hide his true self and occasionally lands him in the hospital. So when he finally meets the perfect man, it comes as no surprise that everything falls apart around him. What Duncan doesn't expect is that the hardest hurdle to get over before he can make a life with Aaron Sutter is the one inside himself.
