It was sweet and cute and so "sigh"-worthy without being cheesy. It's Amy Lane and she has her own style. I think I could recognize it even without her name on the bookcover.
The book is nearly angst-free. Okay, Kenny is more insecure than you imagined but on the other hand Will is really solid, his rock. I love how Amy plays with words and it has a lot of funny word-creations and dialogues.
Personally I loved the moment when Will jerked off to the cast of the Lord of the Rings, starting with the smallest and came when was at Pippin. Makes me wonder...Pippin before or after drinking Entwater..because that just would mean Gimli already made him hot :D I think I need to ask Amy that in her fb group.
So, I loved it, it was a wonderful comfort read with all things shiny and I believe in Santa Claus...or at least in Will.

Shiny is a wonderful lighthearted story about the meeting of Will Lafferty and Kenny Scallia. How did they meet you ask????? Well they explain it together to Will’s Aunt Nina at her wedding reception. Will is hesitant to tell the story and blushes, but Kenny sits up as Nina says she will keep the cake and punch coming (by delivery of her niece Ashley) as Kenny pipes up and says to Nina “Okay sweetcheeks, but I’ve got to tell you she’s going to be run off her little tuchee because a lot of this story is not suitable for children”
Kenny begins….It all started when I got home early one day to surprise my boyfriend at lunchtime….the scene is one you would expect, finding your lover with someone in your bed. But worse is one of our ‘toys’ is involved as well. Kenny is incensed and gathers all of them up, taking them to the garbage can in front of his home, dumping them on top of the pile of garbage. That is after he throws out his ex and the stranger in his bed. His ex tried to talk to him, and Kenny’s reply was ‘well Gif something else came along….something more shiny.’
Nina now asks what William was doing while Kenny was disposing the plugs, rings and penises….William replies “getting fired” ….I was teaching in a private church school and let the 5th graders read Harry Potter. Leaving the school after packing up his car, his girlfriend Denise calls his cell and with her screaming about his getting fired the car just seemed to hit the garbage can and ‘stuff ’ fell out. He got out and was mesmerized by a shiny phallus on the ground and went to touch it when a voice said behind him….ahem you might not want to touch that…..Hence the meeting of Will and Kenny !
It seemed right for Will to ask Kenny out for a beer….For both, their day couldn’t be any worse. What could happen over a beer?????
Amy you have done it again, your wit and sense of humor blossoms in Kenny ‘s character giving him quick wit and sarcastic personality that gives the reader a great love story as well as a fun read. I actually was laughing out loud reading an Amy Lane book !!!! Imagine that. Loved Will and Kenny together what a compliment of personalities….. Cannot wait for your next or dare I say it….am scared.
Review by Gloria Lakritz
Sr Reviewer and Review Chair for the Paranormal Romance Guild
I have to start by giving Amy Lane a round of applause. This woman is so versatile. She can write sci-fi, fantasy, contemporaries, heavy stuff, dark stuff, and, now, romances that are light as a feather. I, for one, tend to be a fan of her heavier stuff, but that's just me.
"Shiny!" was a great comfort read. You know, when you just want a book about being happy to make you happy. Like the title, this book is filled with exclamation marks and emphatic sentences. This isn't a GFY/OFY where the main character agonizes over his sexuality. Oh no, once Will discovers his sexual preferences, it is happy, easy acceptance. It is exciting, upbeat, and, well, shiny!
Like many of her books, the book is about a teacher, which is subject near and dear to Ms. Amy Lane's heart with her history in the field. I liked how the romance developed and the touches of humor throughout the book.
What I didn't love as much was the format. It starts off in the present and flashes back to when Will and Kenny first met. The whole book is told in back and forth flashback-type vignettes, which isn't my favorite way to tell a story. I also don't love exclamation marks in my reading material, for some reason. It reads as sort of juvenile, which is completely ironic because I love using exclamation marks in my reviews (!!).
Overall, this book was sweet and fun and different from other Amy Lane's that I have read. While it won't rank among my favorites by her, it is a cute, sexy read for times when you just need a light story to take your mind off of real life.

"Jeg elsker dig ikke fordi du er smuk, jeg synes du er smuk, fordi jeg elsker dig."
(" I don't love you because you are beautiful, I think you are beautiful because I love you")
This is what this sweet story is all about.
Kenny is throwing out all of his "sex toys" one night, after finding his "boyfriend" with another man, and throwing them out too.
Will, a sweet, to big and "straight" guy, run into Kenny’s garbage cans and expose all the "stuff".
That leads to a "no date", a book with sex pictures, Wills not so straight thoughts on Kenny, friendship over mutual graphic novels, dates, love and the entire story being told at aunt Cara/ Nina’s wedding...
Very sweet and lovely. and shiny♥
