Kurzbeschreibung

2nd Edition - 15,000 words of added scenes.

When David Carmichael suffers a migraine and a broken shoulder, Trace Jackson, his best friend, simply moves in to take care of him. Their easy camaraderie is threatened when David discovers an undercurrent of heat and tension flowing between them. Despite knowing his best friend is straight, David is not-so-slowly falling in love.

Trace has never desired another man. He's a ladies' man with quite the reputation, considered a top prize around town. But his close, treasured friendship with David is intensified by the emotion and arousal, and the lure of having David so close is irresistible. Soon Trace makes it clear to David that he wants to know if they can make it work between them. Because Trace is sure he won't ever want anyone else—he already loves David.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Story mit Herz und Humor 14. September 2010
Von claudi14
Format:Taschenbuch
David und Trace sind gute Freunde und als David sich die Schulter verletzt, zieht Trace bei ihm ein und hilft ihm bei den täglichen Dingen. Trace ist str8 und steht seinem besten Freund ohne Hintergedanken bei Seite. Er zieht bei David ein und die Story beginnt. Aufgrund des täglichen Zusammenseins kommen sich die Beiden immer näher und die sexuelle Spannung steigt. Die Harmonie des Zusammenlebens lässt David und Trance darüber nachdenken, ob da mehr sein könnte, als nur Freundschaft. Trance wird neugierig und denke darüber nach, wie es sein würde, mit einem Mann zusammen zu sein. David spürt dies und zögert zunächst, sich mit einem Hetero einzulassen. Die beiden beginnen miteiander zú flirten und der Liebestanz nimmt seine Anfang. Wie David und Trance miteinander tanzen ist wunderbar beschrieben. Mit Humor und Einfühlungsvermögen beschreiben die Autorinen, wie die Neugier aufeinander, das Paar näher bringt. Die Entwicklung von Trace und seiner Gefühle für David sind gut nachzuvollziehen und als Leser/in kann man an vielen Stellen des Buches gut nachvollziehen, warum er sich in David verliebt. Eine romantische Beziehung, die sich jeder von uns wünscht. Es spielt keine Rolle, ob hetero oder homo. Jeder sucht nach seinem Seelenverwandten. Trace und David finden ihn. Ich fand die Story einfach schön und habe das Buch inzwischen mehrmals gelesen. Die einfühlsamen aber trotzdem heißen Sexszenen waren dabei nur ein Grund.

1.0 von 5 Sternen Viel zu "süß" und unrealistisch ! 21. Juli 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
Ich habe das Buch gelesen, da überall durchweg positive Kritiken (amazon, goodreads etc.) das Buch angepriesen haben, also dachte ich, warum nicht?
Meine Erwartungen wurden allerdings mehr als überhaupt nicht erfüllt...

(Achtung: SPOILER)

David Carmichael (schwul) wird plötzlich und überraschend von eine starken Migräne überfallen, aus Mangel an Meds bei sich zu Hause bittet er seinen besten Freund Trace (heterosexuell, unwissend was Davids Homosexualität betrifft) um Hilfe. Dieser kommt sogleich vorbeigeeilt (inkl. eigenem Haustürschlüssel zu Davids Haus) um "Retter in der Not" zu spielen und weicht nicht mehr von Davids Seite.
David nimmt die Schmerzmittel und legt sich schlafen, um der Migräne in seiner Traumwelt zu entfliehen, während Trace sich entschließt, über den schlafenden David zu wachen und die gesamte Zeit neben ihm im Bett sitzend irgendwelche Arbeiten an seinem Laptop erledigt.

Das Ganze natürlich aus dem Grund, sodass er im Falle eines ..erm...ja von was eigentlich? - mehr als den armen Kerl mit Medis einzudecken kann er ja sowieso nicht tun.., also, im Falle eines Notfalls sogleich einschreiten kann.
Dass Trace David nicht den Kopf streichelt, ihn ins Bettchen einpuckert und einen Gutenachtkuss auf die Stirn gibt, ist alles....

Es folgen eine wohltuende Massage (Trace --> David), Dialoge wie: "Pass beim Duschen auf, du brauchst nicht auch noch eine gebrochenen Arm." - "Ja, ich lass die Tür offen...

1.0 von 5 Sternen Just awful - and sickly sweet as well 9. September 2011
Von karlakolumna - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Sickly sweet romance indeed, so sweet it literally made me feel sick. Well, I admit I'm not that much of a sucker for pure romances, but that's not the reason I dislike/hate this book so much.

There were so many flaws and discrepancies in that book, it was impossible for me to like it at any point.

I'll give you a few examples in order to underline this:

***SPOILER ALERT***

- David, the gay one, suffers badly from a terrible migraine, so he calls his best friend Trace (the "straight" one) to bring him some meds. Naturally Trace spends the whole time there, next to poor, exhausted, sleeping David, in his bed, working on some stuff on his laptop. Well, ok I get that male individuals can be that caring, considerate etc., but the way they talk, the way they interact -- it is just too much. Trace is just the good Samaritan, but not in a good way, if you understand what I mean.

- Trace spends the night at David's - or better: in David's bed -- and how could it be any different since the couch in the living room was just too uncomfortable. Any straight man would sleep next to his friend, together in his bed rather than staying ONE night (that's what he was assuming at that point) on the couch - yeah right..

- While the migraine is history rather fast, David's newly broken arm/shoulder (caused by migraine-induced dizziness that leads to a fall in the shower) swaps places with the earlier physical predicament (aka the migraine), so that Trace gets a new reason to stay at David's place and care for him, while the poor guy is INCAPABLE of doing anything.

--> Seemingly, a broken arm causes you to be bed-stricken for one whole week (following the accident) and incapable of working the next 8 ones.

--> Seemingly, with only one efficient arm left, you're more than incapable of an independent life, in fact you're helpless, like a baby, only worse. You're incapable of un/dressing yourself, you just can't figure out how to use your other well-working arm and hand to open your trouser button, it's just too impossible. In fact, you should thank God that you are still capable of breathing on your own.

--> Seemingly, your straight best friend, who you only know for a couple of years, who you don't actually meet that often, who doesn't even know THAT YOU ARE GAY (while all your other friends do), who you have never ever invited to one of your regular poker games -- who didn't even know that they existed -- immediately volunteers for the new open job position as your own personal nurse 24/7 (undertaking the task of opening the trouser button on a daily basis included).... placing his own life gladly on hold for the coming 8 weeks, during which he'll share your bed happily - just platonically, as two straight men, of course.

Thinking all that over again it actually starts to make... even LESS sense than the first time.

Oh, and did I mention that - while you are indeed incapable of anything, while any task and exercise is a NO-GO, is simply impossible to handle on your own, if not at all - sex actually is not only possible, but a GO-GO...

Well, I think I made my view on this book clear enough. If all of the above doesn't scare you away from that book, I guess you will actually find yourself enjoying it.

Which is totally OK, of course.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Enjoyable m/m romance 12. Juni 2009
Von B. D. Whitney - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
David Carmichael and Trace Jackson may be reporters for two competing newspapers, but they have been the best of friends for years. It's not as if they live in each others' pockets, of course; they do have separate lives and friends and loves, but they know they can count on each other in case of an emergency. When David suffers a blinding and debilitating migraine, he calls on Trace, and his friend is happy to pick up the medication and to help however he can. When David subsequently slips and fractures his shoulder, Trace naturally moves in to help his friend recover from the painful injury. And it is during this period of cohabitation that the relationship between the two men begins to change.

David is gay. Trace is not. And while Trace doesn't have a problem with David's sexual orientation, David is not quite so comfortable, because the more time they spend together, the more he discovers deeper feelings and an attraction toward the younger man that didn't exist in the past. The last thing he wants to do is chase away his best friend with unwanted attentions, so he does his very best to keep his feelings - and his hands - to himself. But they're sharing the one bed in David's house, and darned if the guy doesn't cuddle like a pro in his sleep.

Trace isn't uptight about his sexuality, and he's willing to admit to himself that he may be attracted to his best friend. He definitely realizes that he has never felt this kind of kinship towards anyone, female or male, and while he's not so sure about the physical lovemaking part of the relationship, he's quite open to kisses and flirtation. David is willing to take it slowly, although he figures that he might just expire of frustration before his shoulder heals. But when he is once again sound and there is no longer any excuse for Trace to stay with him, will Trace disappear out of David's life as well as his house? Will Trace be David's to keep, or will he just be the that who got away?
********

Rhianne Aile and Madeleine Urban's novel The One That Got Away is a study of two friends who discover that there may be more to their friendship than they previously thought. Well-written and with a narrative that flows with effortless ease, this story is very romantic and extremely sensual, and I found myself glued to it from the beginning to the very end.

In David and Trace, the authors give us two heroes who are well-developed enough to catch both our attention and our affections. These two are comfortable together and are self-confident enough to not be intimidated by the other's sexuality, and it is a pleasure to watch their relationship blossom from friendship to passion to love.

The sensuality in this story is fascinating. Ms. Aile and Ms. Urban build the sexual tension between the two men slowly until it is so thick that it is almost tangible. The reader can only sit back and wonder who is going to snap first. While there is little exterior conflict in this story, there is more than enough man-versus-himself conflict to go around. Both David and Trace fight an internal battle, pitting their common sense against their wants. Each man is strongly attracted to the other, but neither one wishes to endanger their friendship over what might just be a passing fancy. They realize that there is the possibility that they might cross a boundary in their relationship that can never be repaired, so they must weigh the possible benefits of deepening their association versus the risks.

This is, plain and simple, a love story, and it makes no pretenses of being anything but that. And I appreciate that, because it doesn't always take feats of daring and danger to make an interesting story. Sometimes it just takes a couple of appealing characters being nudged just a little beyond their comfort zones. And that is just what we have in The One That Got Away.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great story! 3. Juni 2009
Von Jon Treadway - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I'm not going into a long synopsis of the story because the abstract that Amazon has tells the story just fine. What's great about this story is the slow development between the characters as they deepen their friendship into love. You know immediately that Trace is in love with David, and you keep pushing David in your mind to wise up and take what's being offered to him! Their first love scene is touching and sensual, and as the reader, you feel like you're right there with them enjoying the sensations and emotions.

Rhianne Aile and Madeleine Urban are a terrific writing team, and their stories and characters are always well-developed and wonderful to read. They're some of my favorite authors, and Dreamspinner Press always publishes great e/books. Definitely a must read, along with the rest of their stories!

3.0 von 5 Sternen I found the men's actions mostly unbelievable 23. Dezember 2011
Von Charly T. Anchor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Warning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS.

Rating: 5/10

PROS:
- Most "Gay for You" stories move so quickly from normal friendship to love that I find them terribly unconvincing. I wasn't ever convinced that Trace was straight, but his reactions toward David do move very gradually from friendly to sexual, which I liked.
- Aile and Urban do a good job of portraying David and Trace's closeness by describing not only their thoughts about each other, but also their overall familiarity and comfort level when interacting.
- The physical relationship is a pretty long time coming. There's quite a bit of buildup and tension before anything happens. And once the men finally get around to some intimacy in the bedroom, the sex scenes are drawn out and described in detail. They're also tentative and tender.

CONS:
- A lot of the characters' actions seemed unbelievable to me. I wondered repeatedly why a supposedly straight man would react to situations in the way that Trace does, and the entire episode that starts the story--David having a migraine--seemed unrealistic. I don't believe that someone in the middle of a migraine would be up for teasing, showering, analyzing his friend's appearance, or putting as much effort into conversing as David does.
- Scenes routinely jump back and forth from one character's head to the other's, which makes it a little difficult to keep up with the story sometimes. Especially if the two guys aren't even near each other physically. In the first scene, for example, we see David lying in bed, then Trace driving along the highway, then David again, and then Trace from David's perspective... It's hard to tell whether you're seeing what one man is actually feeling or the other guy's IMPRESSION of what the first guy is feeling.

Overall comments: I didn't hate this story, but I've already essentially forgotten it, just a week after having read it. I found the whole thing a little ridiculous: I couldn't bring myself to take it seriously when the two men acted in ways that struck me as so unrealistic.
5.0 von 5 Sternen The One That Got Away by Rhianne Aile & Madeleine Urban 27. Dezember 2011
Von Elisa - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
A mix of friends with benefits and gay for you themed, this is the story of best friends David and Trace who will find the love of their life in each other arms. When David is in need of a good friend, the one who is immediately in his mind is Trace; it's not that Trace is the only friend he has, and by the way, he is not even is oldest or best friend, but maybe unconsciously David needs someone to love and take care of him in a deeper way than simply a friend, and maybe he knows he will find that in Trace.

Trace is apparently straight, but he has no preconceptions or hangs up on the chance of being in love with a man; actually is only fear is to barter on their friendship, he is pretty easy on the issue of being attracted, for the first time, by a man. Again, I think that deep down, Trace was already in love with David, and that feelings made them both aware they were right for each other, even if consciously they hadn't yet given a name to the feeling.

The story between David and Trace is very sweet, in time they will arrive also to sex, but even then, it will remain more on the sweet than the erotic level. They kiss a lot, they cuddle, they are all around male, but don't disdain the more tender said of their love. They are also very open with their feelings, and there is no denying of them. When David and Trace start to realize there is something more between them, they are also able to stop and consider the chances they have to an happily ever after, and to give to that a shot.

I was more or less used to the fact that "friends with benefits" and "gay for you" stories are usually more erotic, more explicit, maybe since the characters have a more masculine side and tend to show it more, but even if, as I said, nor David or Trace display a feminine side, I appreciated that the tone of the story remained on a more romantic level, so that, even when sex arrives, it was almost a plus, due to the fact that both David than Trace had already displayed their affection to each other in more sweet ways.
