Midlife Crisis


Rob Rosen

Jack is thirty-five and single once again. He is not, as he as quick to point out, going through a midlife crisis. Still, it would be nice to have a partner, and so he sets out on an adventure to find the one-time love of his life, Bing, a man he hasn’t seen in more than fifteen years, a man who has seemingly vanished off the face of the planet. With the help of his family and friends, not to mention the family dog and his high school bully, he goes searching for Bing, only to unearth an ages-old mystery that puts them all in grave danger. In this hysterically funny tale, the question remains right on up to the surprise ending: can we return to our past in order to better our future?

Time of Your Life


Erzabet Bishop, Emjay Haze, Chad Brian Henry, DC Juris, Samantha Luce, Megan McFerren and Val Prozorova, Charles Payseur, Jessica Payseur, Janelle Reston, Rob Rosen, Lynn Townsend

The Time of Your Life might slip away if you don’t watch out! Tales from deep space, the open road, reality television, fantasy-academia, and contemporary life are brought together in this collection.

In Jessica Payseur’s Orbits, longtime friends-with-benefits meet unexpectedly on a space station and finally sync their technology.

Warren’s Peace by Emjay Haze, Duet by Megan McFerren and Val Prozorova, and A Change is Gonna Come by Rob Rosen take the reader on the road—via a Caribbean cruise ship, the railway system of France, and the California Interstate, respectively.

A happy home is the goal, but when Chad Brian Henry gives two happily married men constant drooling and barking in the form of A Problem Called Travis, they unhappily realize their aim may not be as true as they thought.

Two authors invite us to weddings! Erzabet Bishop and Lynn Townsend each use humor and surprise, found in the commonplace, to lead newlywed wives in First Night and two grooms-to-be in Wedding March toward discovering and remembering why they went to all this trouble in the first place.

The Color of Magic, by Charles Payseur, lets us watch and learn with three university students, who challenge authority to secure the future. In a more typical college setting, a shy roommate and an outgoing roommate delight each other with A Taste of What’s to Come, written by Samantha Luce.

Straight off the small screen, Food Play Extreme, by Janelle Reston, serves a platter of competition and confidence to three top chefs. And in D.C. Juris’ A Good Bargain, age and experience is indeed a good match for youth and beauty.

Don’t ignore the ticking of that clock—it’s the time of your life!

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: Jackson is one unusual wolf. He hates meat and hates to kill. He thought he was alone until a bear lets him in on a secret.

This story is way too short to give you a good idea of what it is about without giving away the story. It was too damn creepy to even get a liking for. It starts off better than it ended that is for sure. I am afraid that this is one story that was not for me.

I was quite disappointed in it altogether.

The Butcher, The Baker, The Candlestick Maker


Rob Rosen

A photography student gets more than he bargains for when he photographs a blond Polish butcher, who he has sex with in the back of the butcher shop; a ginger-haired Irish baker, who he has sex with in the back of the bakery; and a brunette British candlestick maker, who he has sex with in the back of the candle shop. All of the men photographed are in period costume and all have tricks up their sleeves—and, of course, down their pants. In the end, a budding romance evolves between the student and the butcher.

Blurb: One man, four lovers, and just ten years to choose one set the Hollywood stage in this hilarious coming of age tale of family, friendship, and fate.

Eddie is in love. The problem is, Eddie’s in love with four men… four men simultaneously, that is. But who does Eddie love more? And can the heart feel for that many men equally? Ah, but it does have four chambers, so four seems the most logical choice… at least, of course, to Eddie.

Paula is Eddie’s famous mom. One by one, each of his lovers comes to work for her, their lives so connected that if one of them itches, another one scratches. But who will wind up with whom in this comedic tale of life and love and friendship? In the end, it’s up to fate to decide what none of them could possibly have seen coming.

Reviewer: Prime

Review: This book was a real dark horse for me – I didn’t realise that I would love it as much as I have. Fate is a fantastic coming of age book by Rob Rosen that follows one young man through life, love and gradually becoming part of a Hollywood fame engine.

As the blurb reads, the story is about Eddie. In fact, Eddie tells the entire story – superbly too, since I never once wondered what the other characters were thinking throughout the book. Eddie brings us through his formative years, but the story really starts when he turns fifteen and ends with Eddie in his mid-20s – the guts of the books is mostly when Eddie goes through college.

And now we come to the four men. I rarely ever like stories which have even a whiff of cheating in them, but I have to say, I was more than willing to overlook any issues regarding faith and loyalty with this one. I think because a) Eddie and his friends match so well, b) I’m guessing that these guys are confusing love and friendship for a good many years until they reach the point where they “grow up”.

The first of Eddie’s men is Brian. These guys have been friends since they day they were born. Both of them were born in the same hospital after their respective mother unexpectedly went into labour. The women, who were light years apart in so many ways, became friends and so did their sons, even when they were separated by both time and distance.

Brian doesn’t seem confused by his sexuality, but I think the best description is fluid considering the girlfriends he gets. Personally, by the end of it, I think that Brian is a bit of a dick but considering Eddie’s behaviour both Eddie and I, as the reader, decided to overlook that.

Then there was Curtis (real name John, its complicated). Curtis is Eddie’s college roommate and after realising they were both gay became friends with benefits, even when Curtis started seeing Aaron. Later on, Aaron also becomes one of Eddie’s men.

During college though, Eddie meets up finding Brian again and this is how he meets Trevor, a friend of Brian’s. Eddie cannot fathom the feelings he feels for each of the men and once all the characters are into play, the guessing game starts (though in the back of my mind what actually happens I thought would be the obvious solution).

And if that isn’t complicated enough, this is only half of the plot!

The other half revolves around Eddie’s comedienne mother, Paula, who maintains a happy family life with her husband and kids, Eddie and Elsie as well as going on the road to perform. As the years pass Paula gains more and more popularity until the point where her fame explodes into Hollywood madness and her whole family is sucked into the Hollywood Machine.

Nonetheless, she manages to keep her head – for the most part – and makes sure she has her husband (I can’t honestly recall reading his name) and kids nearby. Eddie’s father shies away from the fame and business side of things; rather he is his wife’s rock. Eddie on the other hand, who had joined his mother on the road throughout his childhood and was a popular part of her routine, begins to take the business side of things over. On their mother’s coat tails, one by one, after drifting apart from his men, they are each brought into the family fold.

There are plenty of other characters in this complex story, but you’ll just have to read it. Eddie is charming, just like his mother. It is difficult not to love them both because in a way both Eddie and Paula are the main characters, though they share the spotlight with at least another six characters. It’s a sweet fairytale of Hollywood with some relatable personal points when it comes to finding love and all the rest.

I’d like to think that this is a book that appeals to everyone, but if you like New Adult, Hollywood, great families, lots of sex and lots of sweetness this is the book for you.

Review: After receiving an invitation to a school reunion and going to see his old high school crush, Conrad, sees his old friend Gary and realizes how much time he wasted pining after someone else when love was right there all along for the taking.

I was glad when Conrad stopped wasting time on someone who didn’t feel the same as him. I was saddened by the fact the fact that Gary and Conrad lost so much time when they could have together instead.

But it all worked out at the reunion with some hot steamy sex and a hint of a future together with each other as it should have been.

Good read.

The get to know each other very well on the flight. Very, very well. Will this be just a trip to the mile high club or the beginning of something special?

This is a very fun, sexy romp. There are lots of humor and plenty of hot man-sex and innuendos. I normally don’t like all the porn-speak dialogue but I love Rob Rosen and his humorous sexy stories. This is a fun story to make you smile and has a very sweet ending for us hopeless romantics.

If you like a little lots of pornish innuendo, mile-high club, stories of fate, love or lust at first site and some hot man-sex this is for you!

Blurb: The sweater blinks in red and green, but all is not merry for Jeff when he discovers that the airport is closed and there’s no way to get home for the holidays. A Christmas miracle, however, is soon to present itself in, of all things, Jeff’s ex, David, who has a private jet at his disposal. And once a member of the Mile High Club, always a member, making this a Christmas no one will ever forget.

Product Link: http://www.torquerebooks.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=79_108&products_id=4085

Review: The sky is a gorgeous blue, no snowstorms, rainstorms, windstorms, hurricanes or anything else hindering the journey back home is forecasted. One would think that he’d be home celebrating the holiday with his parents, right? Wrong! Nothing short of a miracle would help Jeff get back home, and guess what? Yup, the miracle happens.

This story is very, very short. It’s one of those quick, fast-past erotic stories that only objective is to make your heart beat a bit faster for some ten minutes and then leave you there hot and bothered. Sadistic I tell ya. The characters in this story share a past. We don’t get to know much beside the fact that they are exes and to be frank, while that was a good thing, I found myself wondering why on earth they broke up. Whatever the reasons though now things are quite different. David, Jeff’s ex, has changed quite a lot – he’s become Mr. Healthy for crying out loud – and his appearance is even more alluring, drool evoking even, so of course Jeff can’t resist when the awkward two plus hours flight has a chance to become a bit… hotter.

So while the story doesn’t have much to offer beside the erotic part of it, which as I said was quite nice and well written, with one of my favorite scenes described in a way that can easily steal your sanity for a minute or two, it does however have a very nice ending, a miraculous one if you really want to believe…

Do I recommend it? Yes! It’s short, it’s fast, it’s fun, and it’s hot. What else do you want?

Review: I am NOT usually a fan of a short read and I seriously couldn’t fathom what the writer could possibly achieve in a mere 13 pages. Well, I was just shut the hell up!  To quote the young people – Oh my gawd!!! This is a cute, funny, quirky, quixotic, irreverent, pithy and witty story.  The blurb says it all.  Here’s all you need to do. READ the STORY – you will be cracking up.

Blurb: Sky rockets in flight lead to an unexpected afternoon delight when Todd finds himself on a raft with Glenn as the latter prepares for that evening’s Fourth of July celebration. The men and the fireworks both shoot off in this romantically offbeat, color-drenched, not to mention sweat-drenched, good-time holiday romp. And who could’ve guessed that a desire to become one with nature would lead to becoming two with it?

Product Link: http://www.torquerebooks.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=79_111&products_id=3990

Review: See, on occasion there are these cute little shorties that have giggling like a lunatic. Totally giggling the entire read. Sometimes I’m just thankful they are so short, because the image I present to unsuspecting passersby is a bit embarrassing.

One such read was this one. You have Todd who has the day off (4th July) and he hit the wilderness. Well no so much as wilderness as it’s a bit out of his neighborhood. As he tries to settle on his hammock and enjoy the day an ear-splitting noise shatters the quiet of the day.

So when we say a day start with a big Bang, this is exactly what we mean. A BOOM, a handsome man, and fireworks… Do the math and you’ll find yourself reading a hot little story.

But that’s not what really caught my attention here. Yes, it is hot, but it’s also written in a witty way making every line somehow hilarious and funny. “Then I laid my eyes on you and started striping your clothes off,” is on high effect here and made for a scene that had this incredulity about it, yet you couldn’t deny its hotness. It had mumbling “Yeah baby” at some point, and I hate being corny for crying out loud.

So yeah, I liked this one, a lot! I found it almost irresistible inhaling it, a feat easily made of course because it was only twelve pages long. It was worth it though, and made me smile.

Reviewer:   GiGi

Review: To say that this was stupendously silly and outrageous would be in the authors words “An Obese Overstatement”! This story is full of camp, I mean vamp, as in CAMPY, vampy. There is of course the Queerwolf from our earlier foray into Christopher Moore-ish writing adventures. Then we are reintroduced to the former “baddie” alpha werewolf Steven Littleton, who is of course gasp-worthy good-looking. We have werewolves in drag, were-pires or should I say Queerpires, Vamps, hump-backed family trees, the mailman’s Adonis-like spawn, goiters, vamp class warfare, lots of quick fucks, and tongue in cheek laughs, pun intended. A lot is thrown at you, along with all the spears. If you understand and appreciate the writing of one of Rob Rosen’s heroes, Christopher Moore, (which I have) you will be able to understand the style and sense of humor that Rosen is trying to resurrect. If you haven’t previously read Moore, well…you’re on your own, I can’t help you.

Blurb: The road is long and there are mountains in their way, but love ultimately brings this unlikely pair together.

Two Ted Jacksons, one from the East Coast, the other from the West, both on business trips to Denver, where fate and a certain schmaltzy love song bring them together — on a fifteen-story balcony, no less — and just as quickly and sadly tear them apart. Months later, they find themselves united again in San Francisco, on the first Ted’s home turf — and on a rooftop parking lot this time. The road is long and there are mountains in their way, but love does indeed lift them up and ultimately brings them together, where they belong.

Product Link: http://www.mlrbooks.com/ShowBook.php?book=RR_UWWBL

Review: Well, this was a nice surprise. Hot, sexy, and somewhat funny this short story made for quite the enjoyable read.

Two Teds meet on a business trip and the instant lust between them is not to be brushed off. Nope, they rather jump at each other and damn if I didn’t like the seduction part more than I thought. We got our selves the exhibition scene too, the two men being utterly erotic, delicious, and charming and… sigh. Yeah, it was hot.

I loved it, the follow-up was even better – yet another out there in plain sight scene – and even hotter. The characters had this special kind of sensuality about them and their charm simply drags you in the story, making you gulp it all down in one go.

I somehow missed the part where they fell in love. I mean there was no declaration of sort, but this was one of those reads where actions speak louder than words and damn if they didn’t fell in love with me almost missing the whole ordeal. And right there where I was thinking that this was one joyous and sexy ride it got emotional too.

So there you have it, a short, sexy, hot and very enjoyable read to pick up your interest, see this author’s writing skills – which by the way are quite good – and perk up your mood. Recommended.

Recommendation: I highly recommend this to anyone that likes Anthologies, stories that date back in time, Vikings, Warriors, Civil war, Cowboys, Indians, time travel,  friends to lovers, Sad stories, true love,  and much, much, more.

Review: Overall. This is a fabulous mix of stories ranging in heat levels and genres. Plenty to choose from, but I suggest you read them all. Here are my individual reviews for each story.

1000 B.C. by C.C. WILLIAMS

David is a Shepard and loves playing his Lyre. He is summoned to go play for King Saul. When he goes, he meets Jonathan King Saul’s son and a great warrior. He will do anything for Jonathan even risk his life to fight a giant named Goliath.

I found this a very sweet and sexy take on the biblical story of David and Goliath. It was interesting, sweet, and loving. ♥♥♥♥♥5 Hearts

496 B.C. by Kayla Jameth

Galen was Alexio’s slave and lover. Alexio freed Galen so other kings couldn’t order him to pleasure them. Alexio loved Galen and wanted him for himself. Alexio was put under tutorship to King Lyko’s and King Lykos had designs on Alexio. Galen was jealous though Alexio said his heart was only for him. Galen’s jealousy gets him into a lot of trouble since the other men do not respect him though he is no longer a slave.

I liked this story a lot. It showed hints of a love triangle, but nothing really happened threesome wise. More of one of the men was just a voyeur. This was a sweet and sexy story. ♥♥♥♥4 Hearts

27 A.D by Tilly Hunter

Lucius was defeated and captured by Barbarian Finian. Lucias likes the rough treatment and finds himself wanting Finian’s humiliation and more. Finian is very rough on Lucias.

I found this story very intriguing if a bit hard to read. The rough treatment was tough but it was sexy in its own way. If you like rough and not loving BDSM this one is for you   ♥♥♥♥♥5 Hearts

130 A.D.  By Julian Siminski

Antinous is Hadrian’s servant and lover. He is turning twenty and no longer a boy. Antinous fears he will be cast aside since men are not allowed to serve. Sabina Hadrian’s wife is jealous of Antinous and cuts his hair showing he is now a man. Hadrian and Antinous are both very upset. They visit the Oracles and each of the three gets their futures. Antinous sacrifices himself for Hadrian.

I loved this. It was absolutely beautiful. I loved the way it showed Antinous ’love and passion for Hadrian and how they came to be together. I loved the way Hadrian fights for Antinous and the end is so sweet and sad. You definitely need a box of tissues for this! ♥♥♥♥♥5 Hearts

794 A.D by Stevie Woods

Cesare is a very spoiled rich boy. His father has a close relationship with Jewish family the Montefiore as there accountants. Cesare has seen a mistake in the books and knows the Montefiore’s have been stealing form them. He also has designs on his personal advisor Tuviya. He spots Tuviya with a servant girl laughing and it makes him jealous so he grabs Tuviya and tells him he knows his father has been stealing form his father. He gets rough with Tuviya.

I liked this story. It is a bit rough the way Cesare handles Tuviya and could almost be considered rape. Though Tuviya is confused by the rough treatment he also finds he doesn’t really want the debt settled and be discharged from Cesare’s services. This story is rough and nothing sweet at all about it but it shows that sometimes love isn’t always sunshine and sugar. It’s much deeper.  ♥♥♥♥4 Hearts
