Review: There could be nothing more embarrassing than having to go to the ER for having broken a dildo in your ass. However, sometimes there’s a silver lining in that your ER doctor is well endowed and would much rather you use him as your personal rod of correction rather than something made in China that comes with a 90 day warranty.

Once Sam heals, he and his hottie doctor, Gregg, will meet up for some soup and some sex – in that order.  Sam will be able to satisfy his size requirements and Gregg will find someone who doesn’t think his size will cramp their style.

This is a match made in heaven – the computer doctor and the ER doctor. What’s not to love?

Great characters, nice witty banter – hot erotic man on man love.

Blurb: Newly out of the army, and out of the closet, Paul finds himself at the local gay pride parade. Imagine his surprise when he discovers he knows one of the men walking with the military float. Paul and Dev attended Basic Training together years ago when they were both in the closet. Now that they’ve found out that they’ve got being gay in common, can they discover what else they both like?

Review: There is only one word to describe this hookup, awkward! But that is what made it perfect. Confused you a bit, didn’t I?

Well, here we have Paul, fresh out of the army and that means only one thing… he’s still getting used to civilian life. And he’s also getting used to the lack of DADT. Pushing himself into a normal life and being out Paul attends Pride where he sees a guy he finds familiar.

And Dev is familiar as they went through basic together once upon a time. Finding out he’s gay, that they both are gay, and now they can actually act on it without fear that is a high on itself, but the chemistry between them also helps a great deal literally forcing them dump the parade and go to Dev’s place.

Nothing weird until this point, but once they get there and after they eat dinner that awkwardness that follows a first hook up set in. You know the one where you constantly say the wrong thing, or don’t know what to say. That was weird for me to read, I felt like squirming in my seat while reading the book, and you know what? I loved it! It made this little short story climb a whole new level on my eyes. It became a bit real. The scene that follows was so damned perfect I was nodding my head and thinking, “Yeah, this author nailed it.” And it was hot, horny even. This pair got to me nice and easy, despite the fact that I didn’t like their first kiss at all, as it was hidden from us.

In the end, weighting pros and cons I found this book great. Recommended!
