Christian, a popular romance writer, has created the perfect man. He's given the world Lord John Loring, a dashing roguish hero who has so consumed Christian's thoughts and time that his wife left him, claiming she couldn’t compete with his swashbuckling fantasy man.

Cute with a side-order of funny, this story had me smiling from the start, and not just because the main character is a writer who takes inspiration from real life - with hilarious results. It was mostly because he does so without even acknowledging what is really going on. His new roommate, on the other hand, knows what he wants – thank God, or Christian would end up a lonely old bachelor with no real life.

Christian is a bit of a geek, focused only on his writing. I mean, his wife has left him...more

This book totally pushed all the right buttons for me. Christian is a bit of a geek, caught up in his writing, so much so that his wife left him. He’s not devastated by that. He seems aware that he’s more gay than straight and he’s much more interested in his leading man. He’s a little freaked when his new housemate shares a name with his character, but he’s hot and Christian is self-aware enough to know he’s crushing on him, but doesn’t want to freak him out and chase him off as he needs the re...more
Christian is an author of a Lord John Loring series -- and when he is desperate to find idea for his next book (his agent keeps telling him to get Lord John laid), he decides to get inspiration from his roommate, who has the same name with his character. Oh, except that Christian also feels attraction ... so is this art imitating life?

The idea is pretty cute ... but I get a bit distracted with the M/F point of view that Christian writes (as part of his story). Especially since I feel that it's n...more
Reviewed by Max: At 28 pages, this story is a quick read. It's a sweet story about love developing between roomates.

I think I had a silly grin on my face the whole time I read this one. Christian was so cute whenever reacting to John. And John is the ultmate perfect guy with his thoughful, caring nature that is shown throughout the story.

If you're looking for spice and heat, this one doesn't have it. But it does have lots of sexual tension. I like that. These characters have a great connection,...more

2.5 stars! This book had great potential and IMO a unique plot: falling in love with a character you create and finding all those endearing features and qualities reflected in an unexpected source. But I have to say that I was disappointed. The plot was bogged down with paragraphs from the book MC was writing.
i am always reluctant to read short stories, but this one managed to bring the sweet romance with heart warming conclusion despite its lenght. Christian was author, who was writing heterosexual romance with great success.His main hero was searching for love as did one who created him.
I thought this was sweet and funny. A romance writer who ends up writing his crush on his new male roommate into his m/f love stories. Also a coming out story, since our writer hasn't publicly admitted his desire for a man until now. Just very cute.
3.5 stars. Cute short m/m romance about a writer who finds himself writing his interactions with his roommate into his historical romance. I had one niggle about the actual sex scene, which lacked any sort of prep, lube, or condom.
