Openly erotic and smart, the stories of Best Gay Romance deliver hope and happy endings. Dale Chase's "The Early Show" describes the tantalizing flirtation of two writers who share an eccentric habit of showing up early to Sunday matinees to enjoy the promising half-dark of the theater. S.J. Frost's "No More Mirages" is a tale of romantic destiny set in a dojo, an oasis of bamboo, white mats, and stone sculptures where an actor, bitter from his last break-up, finds himself drawn to a charismatic sensei. And in Rob Rosen's wonderfully funny "Nudie Blues," a romance writer discovers a hole in his backyard fence and the hunky new neighbor behind it.

This book was not what I expected. It's listed in erotica, so that's what I was wanting and expected. But the title is honest. It does say the best ROMANCE. And that's mostly what this book is. There's very, very, very little actual sex that goes on in the book. Out of about 10 stories or so, maybe 3 of them had an actual sexual encounter included. But, by the end of the book, I thoroughly enjoyed the very romantic tales. So, if you're looking for more romance and less sex or erotica in gay form, then this book is definitely for you. The romance in it is great. And the sex, when it occurs, is a little explicit--for my taste anyway--, but also enjoyable to listen to. It always fits and is never gratuitous.
Best: the gay love making. Least: the straight love making.
The best gay romance? For a book of gay romance there was a lot of straight sex in it. If I wanted to listen to straight romance or sex I would first have to be straight, I'm not into straight romance or sex I'm gay that's why I purchase this book in the first place. Yes there was more gay romance and sex than straight romance and sex I guess I was a little bit disappointed.
