4.0 von 5 Sternen all the flavors of summer romance 14. Oktober 2013
Von Books on Silver Wings - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
This anthology is a compilation of several amazing works in the M/M romance genre. Each short story features a summer theme and will give you a taste of all the flavors of summer romance.

Summer Hire by Chrissy Munder
3.5 Stars

Jim is a computer programmer without a job and Aaron needs another helping hand at the garage for his boat retail business. Despite their initial attraction, they are held back by their boss-employee relationship. This is a cute, short, and complete story. The epilogue nicely ties up loose ends and ensures a wonderful, realistic, happy end for the couple and will simultaneously leave you with a smile.

Lost and Found on Lindisfarne by JL Merrow
5 Stars

I love the interesting character voice telling the story. And it's about Vikings! The story definitely has a sense of humor and things generally stay upbeat throughout. I love the family dynamics between Chris and his clever daughter, Kelis. They are vacationing on a Viking island and meets Ian, the Viking. Ian is looking for a bride and chances upon Kelis...who's twelve years old. The set up is clever and hilarious.

Salt 'n' Vinegar by Clare London
4.5 Stars

This is a romance in a fish and chips shop by the sea. Joe, a college graduate part-timing at the shop, meets a striking, mysterious but reserved local. I love that sex is not just depicted as the physical, but as part of the relationship. The romance grows with slow revealings of Steven's character, but then a story twist pops up and brings a healthy dose of angst. The HFN ending temporary settles the hunger for a HEA for the couple and makes me long for a sequel or an epilogue.

Werewolves of Venice Beach by Lou Harper
3 Stars

This story definitely starts out with a bang (with nudity). I liked the angst-fulled relationship between Slade and Bryan. Slade acts like a stranger in the day and an intimate lover at night. Bryan is confused and wants an exclusive, all-out boyfriends relationship. Maybe Slade's behavior has something to do with his band of werewolves?

I love the dogs and the feelings of endearment they bring to a scene. The dogs also have a correlation with the werewolves,which Bryan noticed. I love the twist with the werewolves plot point. Though on the flip side, it does cut in on Slade's commitment issues. The final revelation to the "werewolves" doesn't conclude or resolve Slade's commitment and trust issues but draws attention away from it.

Overall, it's a wonderful werewolf story with hot men that'll satisfy you while leaving you wanting for more.

By Quarry Lake by Josephine Myles
4.5 Stars

Tommy and Rob meet again at a secret lake years after Tommy runs away when Rob confessed to him and revealed his sexuality. Now Tommy struggles to tell Rob of his feelings. Meanwhile, Rob faces hardship from his family and working farm hours. At their secret hideaway and under the water, societal constraints melt away, giving Tommy courage to try something new with Rob and hopefully, have Rob return his love.

There are lots of swimming and getting to know each other again. The story is well written and captures the passion and shyness of trying to rekindle a past love. I love the setting and the budding romantic interest that are set in the wilderness and the transition into society, their world, their families. That shows how the characters react in other situations and makes them more real. Everything put together made this a great coming out story.

4.0 von 5 Sternen A good mix - fun and light for the most part, with a few deeper moments 5. November 2013
Von Nathan Burgoine - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
"Summer Hire," by Chrissy Munder

This was a cute and fun little story about a summer job. Jim is a techy kind of guy, a bit of a network nerd and more than a little clumsy, and when he first sees the man who will be his boss all summer, it's like he's watching the start of one of his porn DVDs - hot man, tattoos, mechanic overalls, muscles... Aaron is definitely fine - but he's also Jim's boss. That the chemistry between the two of them is obvious doesn't help, and neither does Jim's constant stream of klutziness, but in the hands of Chrissy Munder, the reader gets a fun and light story of the start of a relationship that no one would likely expect.

Better, it's not as simple as the start would have you believe. Jim's got some family troubles, and Aaron might be the local-boy-done-well, but before he was that, he was anything but the popular young man in town. They both have every reason to be hesitant despite the chemistry, and that helped the tension roll onward without feeling like it was going on a bit too long.

"Lost and Found on Lindisfarne," by J.L. Merrow

Okay, I admit it. I nabbed Summer Lovin' entirely based on seeing that it had another J.L. Merrow short story in it. After reading Muscling Through I was in the mood for more fun from Merrow, and this collection of short stories about summer loves sounded perfect.

Merrow's story takes place when a young father and his daughter take a vacation that includes visiting Lindisfarne - where "Vikings" live and breathe for tourists. But when a large viking asks the man if his twelve year old daughter would be willing to marry his berserker son, the father finds himself more interested than his daughter. Still, being a dad doesn't leave much time for having fun himself - except maybe there's a lesson to be learned about how the vikings took what they wanted.

Or at least this particular viking.

Cute, sweet, and charming - but not lacking depth and a couple of moments that gave me a pause and a sniffle - this was exactly what I was hoping for today.

"Salt 'n' Vinegar," by Clare London

So I admit it. Summer Lovin' is sort of a collection that's letting me keep a sense of warmth and summer as the Ottawa autumn tells me that the summer is so incredibly over. Cold rain all morning, leaves at my feet, and frost and...

It snowed the other morning.

Still! The heat is still on in this short story anthology, and I'm happy to vacation there. "Salt 'n' Vinegar" is the story in this collection that had the largest emotional surprise for me, and I don't mean that in a bad way. These are stories of summer flings, so I was expecting meet-cutes and soft romantic stories, some funny, some silly, and a dash of spice. So when I got to the revelations in this story, I was taken aback (again, in a good way).

Without ruining anything, this time the summer romance is between a fellow working at a fish 'n' chips shop on the seafront, and a regular customer who comes in for chips with extra salt. His sister - who also works at the same shop - teases the poor guy mercilessly for his crush on said customer, and when the hero of the tale finally works up the nerve to chat the fellow up, things start to move forward.

But then there's a major change of direction mid-way through the tale, and - as I said - it was a complete surprise.

In a way, I think I can credit "Salt 'n' Vinegar" with giving this anthology a sense of real range without losing sight of the summer theme. It's a delicate balance, but London pulls it off.

"Werewolves of Venice Beach," by Lou Harper

This one's a part of Summer Lovin', and it may not be summer any more, but I can still enjoy some stories that take me to a place where there's sun, sand, and... potential lycanthropes.

Bryan has taken a house-sitting job for the summer, where he walks a dog, and gets to see the beach, and where he can study to get a leg up on next year's courses in Engineering. He's maybe a little too driven, and maybe he's a little bit of a nerd, but he's mostly okay with that right up until he sees the naked guy next door with the tattoos and the...

Well, the everything else.

Soon he's finding his neighbors are a crazy lot and that he enjoys spending time with them - including the fellow he had such an unfettered view of earlier - and before long, things happen and he's in bed with said tattooed musician, and maybe this summer he won't be studying all that much after all.

But is it possible the weird way this neighbor is running hot-and-cold has something to do with the collarless dog he sees running around? Could it be the reason his nickname is "Dogbreath" is..?

Fun and light for the most part, there's enough serious to this story to ground it, and it's a lovely summer romance.

"By Quarry Lake," by Josephine Myles

I loved this last tale from Summer Lovin' mostly for how it left me with an "aww!" feeling. Two young men parted when a kiss turned into a punch and misunderstanding has been left in silence ever since. But when the man who threw the punch comes back to town - and knows now that he is, absolutely, gay - there's reconciliation in the air.

If it's possible.

The lake named by the title is central to the story, and it's a great setting - a swimming hole only the two of them really know - and it frames the start and end of the tale in a soft and summery fashion. Indeed, there's nothing not to love about this piece, which - as I said - finishes off the collection with just the right note.

If only summer would last forever like this...

Sometimes the shorter stories aren't as satisfying, but that's not true for these. I enjoyed the characters, and the stories didn't feel rushed. Well done.

2.0 von 5 Sternen Mostly OK 20. August 2013
Von Xanlthorpe - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

Did not care for the first story, but the remainder of the pack were OK. Not sure why I continue to pick up these anthologies when past experience is that the stories are such a mixed bag, and not in a good way.
