Dear Author,
I'm submitting my avatar boys. My boys have been with me for a few years now so be nice to them.

Tell me about how they got to this point and what happened after. I know the background is dark. I imagine them in a bedroom at this point.


Photo Description: In moody black and white, two bare-chested men embrace. The front man stands still, arms at his sides. He til

Oh, I hope these guys make it! And I want to read about they coming together, more than this one meeting. But this short story was great, though. It sounded like Bondy (Blond-y?) was a much better guy that Gale's ex. The sex scene was wonderfully written.

Since everybody is asking how this should end....
Happily ever after Ofcourse! :) hint hint hint...
Beautiful story DH. More please? :)


LMAO!:
So, what brings you to Mianus?”

“Pardon me?” Gale winced at the incredulity in his own voice. The town had the unfortunate pronunciation of “my anus”.

Bondy broke out in a new round of laughter, this one light hearted, almost a giggle, but still masculine. “That line gets you city guys every time.”


I will confess--> Topping the longish list of reasons

Oh man, do I ever love the sad hero who finds comfort in the arms of a lover, and D.H. Starr added his special touch to make this little short story oh-so-memorable. Bravo!

Loved that this short and sexy tale was HIYW instead of HEA. Made this more realistic and hopeful that Gale and Bondy's relationship succeeds.

Oh I was waiting for this one! Being a bit nerdy (well, ok, perhaps more than a bit) I used to read all the Dark Knight comics, so right from the start you had me grinning with damn it, my hem was on fire, followed by I yanked at the damned cape, trying not to catch it on the raw edges of the broken steel stud that lay inches away. Christ, rushing through places like this was always a hazard. and since I'd been hanging around the neighborhood—sorry, that was a bad pun. After a start like that, t

4.5 stars

This tender story was extremely well-written.

I can honestly say, it's one of my favorites out of the "Hot Summer Days" stories so far.

I especially liked that the author let the end open to imagination for the reader if there will be a HEA.

I'll definitely seek out more by this author!

this was pretty awesome and sweet story, would love it if they ended up together. and their connection is something that can become so much more.
the only thing that bothers me a little is that it seems too fast for them to sleep together, I mean I understand but still would have been nice to have a little more before and also that we didn't get to know much about bondy other than that everything is good!

I loved Gale and Bondy! Thank you for writing a character that could show his emotions and one that was strong and yet sensitive enough to help. Their time together felt very intimate and I picture them riding off together on that chopper to live happily ever after - I think they both deserve it!! A beautiful story - thank you so much:)

A sweet story that, even with a slightly open-ended conclusion, leaves the reader feeling hopeful, not just for Gale's love life, but for his whole life.
