A Little Bit Country (Don't Read in the Closet Events)
These two men used to be rivals. A (country) music star who is the perfect son in law material and a volatile rock star with an attitude. The men have been at odds for years, the media fueling the rivalry. But somehow their animosity turned into tenderness. How did that happen?
Now, dear author, I realize this set up has the potential to produce a really sappy ...more
“I don’t get it with you two. You cross words constantly...more
Jackson and Ash have been involved in a media war for three years...they eventually meet in person where they are both featuring in a Benefit Concert.They both try and 'clear the air' between them but continue to 'rub each other up the wrong way'..(Oh dear,but you know what I mean..about the rubbing.....)
He's not easy to get along with.When I'm with him,I don't know if I want to choke him or fuck him"
When they do get together the chemistry is of the charts hot..
Ohhh, but assholes do make for some explosive sexual tension!!!
I will back that up with these quotes:
"Since I took back the Asshole Award from you last night, I wanted to give you a chance to win it again."
"Well, that was one way for us to work out the tension between us."
…and I will throw in this one just for fun:
"God, please stop. I was trying to talk kinky and you turned it into cows. There's no sexy in that."
I really liked this story. Country ...more
A Little Bit Country is one of the better known contributions to the Don’t Read in the Closet Event and I have been looking forward to reading this story since quite a while now. I usually enjoy stories about musicians and this one wasn’t an exception.
Ash, a famous rock star and lead singer of From Ashes has an ongoing feud with Jackson, country music sweetheart. The interesting aspect of this enemies-to-lover trope is that Ash and Jackson never really met in person, t ...more
Yes they are both pretty much assholes but I loved them anyway. I am sad it ended, there is so much more I want .
Anyway great story, great characters, lots of tension, some laughs and other stuff.
Jackson tries to talk to Ash, but their first encounter in person ends badly. Feeling bad, Ash goes to Jackson to talk, but this one, too, e ...more
I liked this short by S.J. Frost but not as much as I expected. I think part of the problem is that the premise didn't do much for me (I'm not a big rock star MC fan). I didn't like how the ending seemed sudden and a bit unresolved, and I didn't get into the characters as much as I would have liked. It gets rounded up to 4 stars because it was free and I like to support Hot Summer Days/ Love is Always Right.
*** 3,5 Hot N Cold stars ***
A nice "short" story about a rocker and a country artist hooking up.
They came from different lifestyles, different backgrounds, different music styles, but when he looked into Ash's eyes, he'd never met anyone who seemed so familiar.
I say "short" because, geez, the chapters just kept coming! The story was good, but it either needed to be more "compact" or been longer, you know? It ended up in the middle. Too long for a shor
It wasn’t a long story; novella-size, really. What I particularly appreciate here was that despite no confessions of love or promises of ever-after being exchanged by the end of it, the story still found a good ending. Yeah, (view spoiler)[Jackson didn’t come out publicly, and the guys are not living together or anything (hide spoiler)], but this left me with a good feeling about their future regardless.
Nice guys, even with all the fighting. :3["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>["br"]>
This short story is about Ash: gorgeous rockstar, all black eyeliner, mowhawks, tats, piercings and loads of bad attitude and Jackson, mild-mannered country singer, the guy you wanna bring home to your parents. Both have had an ongoing verbal feud no thanks to the media who loves to ke ...more
This story had so much meat (now, now, I say that to mean "substance", nothing more *grin*) and yet I'd also love to see more of them and learn if Jackson comes all the way out of the closet or not. I ...more
