******Review of Kim Dare and Mark Alders' stories*******




A BUGGER TO PACK by Kim Dare

Everything started with Lori, moderator of M/M group initiative (thank you so much Lori! You do an amazing job in the M/M romance group).

I, always horny and ready to partecipate, wrote the follow xmas letter:

Dear Santa,

I would love to read a good Master/Slave book, without humiliation (sorry Santa... I hate humiliation, like eat garbage or stuff like that), and with a lot of hot scenes. Maybe a sexy Master/Slav

I am enjoying the hell out of reading these shorts--and like M.J. and Jade have said, I'm really proud to be a part of this. These stories were, literally, written for fun, and I think each story has that sort of spirit in it. It was like a big m/m group Christmas hug, and I'm all warm and fuzzy on the bottom of the pile:-) Thanks everyone--this rocks.

Something for everyone and done with a true holiday spirit. I loved it.
Fair disclosure, as a co-mod of the m/m group here at goodreads, my review could be considered completely biased. I had no intention of disliking any of the stories and I didn't. :)

Awesome collection of short m/m stories...something for just about every taste.

edit: I should add that one of the twenty-five stories is mine... :)

some of my favorite authors and samples of new authors that I didn't know about until now. Thanks to all the authors for giving their time and imagination.

I have rated each story separately.

A Shiny New Toy by M.J. O'Shea- I give this lil' number 4 1/2 stars. I loved the characters.

Thick As Thieves by Brian Jackson- 1 star. Damn Anthony! He used Charlie. I like a happy ending but this happy ending was filled with a sense of sadness.

Leaking Pipes by Deanna Wadsworth- 4 stars. It was so cute how Sam didn't think a guy looking like BJ would be interested in him, when in fact he was. Would have been a great start to a full-length book!

I found this anthology after a search for Kim Dare stuff and I'm so glad that I did. I have some discovered some fabulous new authors and the time, and energy that has gone into this is astounding. I can't review all the stories...I wish I could but the review is long enough! There isn't a bad story amongst the lot and I have chosen to write about my top 10, in no particular order! The variation of themes within the anthology is great as it means that there is something for everyone...myself, I ...more

There are some very excellent stories in this collection. It's a shame that the photos which the stories were originally based on could not be included as well (because we don't have the rights to the images), but the reads are still very worth it. Most of the stories can be read in 10-20 minutes.

A Shiny New Toy by M.J. O'Shea: 4 stars - a sweet story about two best friends. Yes, of course this has been done, but the photo that inspired the story was really cute and I love the way it was brought to life.

One of my stories, Christmas Gifts, is in this anthology. I have to say, I really enjoyed writing that story. It was fun to write and I enjoyed working with my critique group on it. It was relaxing to work on because it was a for fun piece that I wrote for the sake of the M/M Romance group to enjoy. I wasn't worried about what a publisher would think about it or whether or not it would sell. I was able to just sit back and write whatever my brain told me to. I hope everyone who reads this anthol ...more

I have 1 short story in here and not only was that a blast to write, but this whole project was wickedly fun. A new story every day for the whole of December? Yes please! And the variety of stories was really wonderful. There's something for everyone! Highly recommended :)
Nicole
I love the variety of stories in here. Some are smoking hot, some are serious, that brought a tear to my eye, and yet some are in-between. There are a lot of talented authors in the m/m romance group here.

The only thing that bothered me with this anthology, was that a couple of the stories were set in some authors 'verses. I don't mind that these authors have universes to write stuff in, but for an anthology, I feel like it should be a stand alone story. Both pieces that I can recall were in 's

I need to be clear that some of the stories in this Anthology were straight up 5's. Like Amy Lane's, Missy Welsh's, Lex Valentine's, Jade Archer's, Em Wood's, Kim Dare's, Kari Gregg's, Serena Yates, and Wren Boudreau's...they were all worth reading. And such a lovely gift...

Yes I have a story in it but the others are awesome. This was a project we all did for fun and finally wound up in one volume. Some great stories here!

A great collection of romance stories inspired by photos. One of my first M/M romance reads.

I decided to stop reading on like, 5th story, since the theme is began feel more naughty than romantic--when I'm actually kind of romanticist soo...

But first few stories was good and I found the 3rd story about IT guy and the plumber very interesting. That story became my favorite in this anthology so far. Maybe I would try to read the other sometimes later and find out whether I could find some stories that fit my taste.

but all in all, this anthology is nice to read.

25 Christmas-stories for free? Give it to me!

A very varied collection of stories. It was fun to read and I'm stunned by what the authors did with only a photo and a prompt. There were stories I liked, didn't get, loved or simply didn't like.

All in all it's 3.5 stars!

Really enjoyed this set of m/m romances for sure. Found it most intriguing the different take from some of the writers. But definitely got really hot from reading each one. ;)

"A Shiny New Toy" by M.J. O'Shea
Rating: 4 stars

Hot, young loving. Two best friends find they have even more in common than sports and favorite pizza toppings in this scorcher. James has been secretly wishing his best friend, Quinn was more. I guess Christmas wishes do have a way of coming true.

"Crying Wolf" by Jade Archer
Rating: 3.5 stars

Nice worldbuilding in this fantasy offering with one recluse mage and the runaway slave wolf-boy. The dynamics between the two are hot and definitely intrigues

25 Kurzgeschichten wurden hier von unterschiedlichen Autoren geschrieben und veröffentlicht. Das Thema, das sie alle verbindet: Gayromance und Weihnachten.
Bei manchen der Geschichten ist der Bezug zu Weihnachten schon sehr entfernt, aber das ändert nicht an der Tatsache, das es mir zum größten Teil Spaß gemacht hat, sie zu lesen.

Abgesehen vom Weihnachtsthema ist die Bandbreite immens. Da gibt es Stories über beste Freunde, die sich ineinander verlieben, romantische Coming out Stories ebenso wie

Overall
Normally with an anthology I like to break down the individual stories, but there are too many to do that here, plus I read them over a long period of time (6 months). A good chunk of these stories (if not a majority) are written by well-known authors in the genre, so unlike some other free anthologies (assuming there are some, somewhere, aside from Wishing on a Blue Star ), the majority of these stories are well written, well edited and overall very enjoyable. Aside from a general Winter

M.J. O'Shea has been writing romance since algebra class in sixth grade (when most of her stories starred her and Leonardo DiCaprio). When she's not writing, she loves listening to nearly all types of music, painting, reading great authors, and on those elusive sunny days in the Pacific Northwest, she loves driving on the freeway with her windows rolled down and her stereo on high.
