Heidi Belleau could make reading the phone book sexy. She just has a way with words.

You wouldn't think such a short story could carry a big punch. It all starts innocent enough with the 2 characters having an innocuous conversation. (view spoiler)

A sexy little short that left me wanting more, dammit!

Review
This was enjoyable, but left me with a serious case of emotional blue balls. As a slice of life, this works great, showing Fletcher and Julian in their standard turn of affairs, picking up guys and taking them home for the night. However, the opening and closing scenes, in addition to moments sprinkled throughout, hint at so much more.

And it's this more that my brain is obsessing over. Is what I'm implying actually tr

As Heidi's frequent cowriter, I'm not a disinterested reviewer. But I beta-ed this short story and am happy to testify that it's an awesome, fun, really hot gangbang—ahem, menage—double ahem, ménage—well, whatever you want to call it, it's hot! There's a lot of complicated power dynamics going on, but in a very light-hearted and totally consensual way. The initial flirting in the bookstore will put a smile on your face, too. This is the sort of porn that just might make you feel a little bit sma ...more

This was fantastic - the way the dynamic shifted throughout the story made a hot sex scene even hotter, and you're given just enough insight into Julian and Fletcher's relationship to want to know more. The ending (and the beginning, for that matter), took me from liking them to absolutely loving them. Also, m/m/m. Not always easily done, but executed very nicely here. (Read: hot like burning).

Fletcher and Julian are an ad exec boss and P.A. respectively, yet there didn't feel like there was a great divide between the two men. They "meet" Ogden in a bookstore (although I'm thinking Fletcher may have pre-arranged it), and bring him home. Well written, very hot story, and surprisingly sweet. An enjoyable read

Because it's a shorty I only give it 3 stars. The story was a short tree-some and it was a HOT one, too. I'm disappointed in shortness, because it drawn me into instantly. Julian and Fletcher were interesting, their relationship was undeveloped and pulling, but sadly to short.

Bookended is a short story involving Justin, his boss Fletcher, and the random pick up they find in a bookstore. It’s difficult to really review, because it is, for the most part, a sex scene with the three of them. Justin is Fletcher’s personal assistant with benefits. Fletcher can’t even decide if they are a couple or not. Ogden has been ogling Fletcher for quite a while and finally, Justin brings the situation to the forefront by addressing the man.

They end up in a threesome, which is writte

This is one hot little quickie. The beginning was a little confusing, and, for some reason, I had a hard time remembering who was the boss and who was the PA. Once the guys get things going with Ogden, things heat up fast. when the encounter ends, things get a little confusing again, and it felt like there was a lot missing to the overall story.
