Con-fus-ing! I couldn't tell who was who in the beginning. It's free and only 10 pages and the ending was kinda sweet.

This story was okay but I felt it was too short. There was no depth to the characters - especially Rio. I would've liked to know more about him. Some short stories do a good job explaining the history between two characters, but this story kind of glossed over it.

Don't Read in the Closet is a collection of short stories published for free for members of the M/M Romance Group. The best part of this series of shorts is that they were based on a photo and a reader request for a story. Here is the

I do not get this one. (view spoiler)
hard to rate because it ended when I started to get interested.
Story Prompt:
Yes, I ignored your warnings, and I fucked up, big time. He told me he loved me, told me he wasn't ready to come out, yet. More the fool me. It wasn't as if *you* knew he was married, either. And for the record, I never said I didn't care about you. You said you didn't want a relationship with me. So, what changed?

I read a couple reviews say they were a bit confused and they wished they knew the characters more-well there is a prequel for this and it's also free:

For me it helped me understand the story a bit better-and a plus is that it's told from Rio's POV.
I read this as a wrap up to the prequel and it was a quick fun ending.

Photo that inspired the story:

Such a great story!

My favourite line? This:

“Yes…” The word was a sigh, breathed into Rio’s mouth. The man’s breath hitched, drinking Tim’s answer in, sucking in his breath and, it felt like, his very soul.

It is a bit of perfection!

Wow! Short and hot with a dose of angst on the side! It packs a powerful punch, but jeez, now I want more (just like Tim and Rio do! ;D) Thanks for writing this VJ!
Ooooh, loved this. I would LOVE to read more about these two, they were sizzling at the end there!
First read 8/25/2011

Re-read 11/20/2012 to also read Plan B (Liar, Liar prequel)
Too short. A little confusing.
