Three New eBooks Reviewed




And phew! They liked 'em, they really liked 'em!

VGL MALE SEEKS SAME

"...a superbly written tale, focusing on the classic idea of finding a partner and the tricks and turns we trap ourselves with. The characterization of both men are incredibly well done in such an honest, open voice that it was easy to picture Ethan and Brian and furthermore, to empathize with them both. The ending...is so beautifully done, humanizing both and showing that even through honesty, your flaws never disappear but you can be loved because of them. For anyone who has less than perfect confidence in dating, you’ll be sure to identify and enjoy this book. It’ll be a keeper for a very long time."

THROUGH THE CLOSET DOOR

"Despite its short length, the pacing and writing of Through the Closet Door was very well done. Reed has an ability to elicit complex emotions with poignant characters. The ending was clearly meant to be left hanging as the character was, on the cusp of a painful but necessary journey. It demonstrates the true strength and conflict that are involved as a gay man comes to terms with his sexuality, his desires and needs, making that scary and painful step out of the closet."

AMBROSE & THE WAIF

"...a dark tale of passion and love, chilling in its icy beauty and gripping in its appeal. With each letter offering an alternate reality, you are left reeling from one moment to the next, uncertain of what and whom to believe...an incredibly well written psychological drama but is not for anyone faint of heart. It’s gripping, dramatic and unpredictable; all in the space of 47 incredibly short pages. As soon as I finished the last sentence, I started at the beginning again and re-read the entire story...a masterpiece with...with love, cunning, passion, guile and need. Stunning to the last word..."
