***Mild spoilers***

This story had a lot of potential - all the pieces were in place to make this a realistic coming out story of two friends who secretly love each other. Instead, Ms. Wilder chose to bail out and try to make this some kind of political and moral statement.

Cal and Waylon have been friends for years, and could not be more different. Waylon is the jock, star of the college football team, and Cal is the loner who was kicked out by his family. The two are unlikely friends, and secret

2012 Review:

Um. Okay.

I feel a little undecided about this one. On the one hand, the romance between Cal and Waylon was sweet and intense, on the other the teacher disturbed me. He just… kind of shouldered his way into their relationship, or rather into their sex life. (view spoiler)

I've got to be honest: this one troubled me on several levels. The characters are 'real' enough to have gotten me really involved - until the introduction of the guys' history teacher (and his actions) totally threw me. No way would a teacher, even at a university, act like this without severe scruples (none are mentioned). He definitely would not get away with it. As hot as the sex scenes were, I just couldn't take the whole situation seriously.

If this lack of realism and morality doesn't bothe

This one did not appeal to me...once the teacher got involved and they started having orgies in the classroom and at the teacher's house - I lost interest. The two heroes go from coming out to each other to massive sex fest with teacher and each other way too quick. The teacher really made me feel icky.

A strong debut novel from Winona Wilder, she packs quite a punch in this highly emotional short story. It didn't take many pages before I felt myself drawn into Cal and Waylon's world.

Cal has been in love with Waylon for years. But Waylon is the star quarterback at their college and is dating one of the most popular girls in school. Resigned to being in the "just friends" column, he keeps his feelings to himself. Cal is afraid to come out to even his best friend after being disowned and kicked o

Cal and Waylon are red hot, and you want more than anything to see them come together and be able to share what they feel for each other, but the odds against them are tremendous. It hurts to imagine the bigotry these two young men will face if they are open about their feelings, and you fully understand Waylon’s desire to keep up appearances. Evan is a little more of a mystery in this whole scheme, as you never really get a feel for what his life was like before he met Cal and Waylon, and what ...more

I really liked this author's writing style. The story sucked me right in. The characters were, for the most part well developed (considering it's a reasonably short story). Their emotions were easily identifiable and their actions stuck with their personalities. The way the romance between the 3 characters deveoloped was charged with sexual tension with not too much outside conflict. This book was more about how Cal and Waylon accept that they're gay and build a relationship. My biggest concern ...more

I'm a bit conflicted over what to rate it, because I really liked the first half of the book, but once their teacher, Evan, got involved, it kinda turned me off from what was going on after that point. There was no conflict from the guys, or any internal debate from Evan, over a teacher getting involved with not one, but two, of his students. I feel like you'd have to put your moralities and realism aside in order to really enjoy this book, which just didn't work for me.

Reviewed by Kerri: Hot! If there was one word to describe Choosing Love, that would be it.

They story isn't complicated or even that deep, but if you like hot guys and hot sex within a menage relationship, then you have to buy this one.

This one looks to be the start of a series. I can't wait for the others. Winona Wilder can write sex. Get this one now!

A+

Actually 3.5 stars - a good first book - a couple of times, thought things happened to abruptly, etc. But otherwise, it was a good book.

Story was ok...i really would have liked to see how things would have gone with just Waylon & Cal :(
