Fun little story. The imagery was fantastic and I thought it was a really fun idea, a couple attempting to recreate the scene from the painting on the cover of the book.

The first part is just setting the scene of the painting and then breaking it. Visually beautiful, but barely sexual, except for speculation about the future. The second part is just a short little sex scene, stemming from the first.

I thought the authors did a wonderful job of blending their styles and I really enjoyed this short

I highly recommended this little story!

So, here’s the thing. I am calling this tiny short story a Recommended Book, although it barely qualifies as a book, and I can’t tell you one single thing about it beyond what is in the blurb without risking multiple spoilers. Go to Ms Singer’s website and follow her instructions to obtain a free copy of this fantastic little story. But be warned: have a dictionary at hand, either in your eReader or otherwise. Ms Cummings and Ms Singer are wordsmiths with m

This a short story of fantasy and ambiguous identities with a classic trope. I enjoy reading it and it is cute. The story is predictable after the first realization into the characters lives, but that doesn't mean the rest of the book is not well written. It's sad that the story is so short, otherwise I'm sure the authors can expand on it and make it unique.

I love the epic fantasy quality of the story. The imagery in the
3.5 stars. This is such a short story that I can't even describe it because any description would be a spoiler. So to speak in very generic terms, this is about Jack and Michael and some sexy events on Halloween. What makes this story really enjoyable is that it's told from Michael's POV and Crepuscule Monstrom II, written by PD Singer, is the same story from Jack's POV. I thought that was very clever.

Carole Cummings has such a way with words, and an unique sense of fun. Go to Dreamspinner Press and find her author page. Click on the gargoyle and enjoy this little gem of a story. Once finished and still in the mood for more, check out the sequel, written by P.S. Singer. Both are free reads at Dreamspinner's site, so hurry on over and enjoy! I highly recommend both stories.

Beautifully written, with dark, scary imagery that put me right there with the MC, but it was all ruined by a temper tantrum. Break character, yes. Shatter the setting in a horror scene, sure. But that final reaction from the MC was very disappointing.

Regardless, I truly enjoyed the flow of this story until that point, and will be checking out more by this author.

Oooh, this was good! Well, actually, I've only read the first part, but couldn't find it on Goodreads to rate. I didn't think I was going to like this story at first when I began to read, but when it twisted into something I didn't expect it was excellent. And it was HOT! Still picturing it.
Very imaginative and, in the end, funny. The imagery of men's fantasy is vivid, scary and exciting - all rolled into one. I've read it before and, on the second reading, the story didn't lose a thing. Excellent.
It was interesting, kinda kooky. I rather liked it.
The two parts built off each other nicely, although

The blurb is awful. It's stupid and kitschy and completely unnecessary.
This is a brief but entertaining short story told from two different points of view - the sacrificial victim and the monster he is being sacrificed to. Or maybe not.

This was a wonderful little short story. Very imaginative and fun. I really enjoyed the fact that you got to hear both POV's, each from a different author!

Funny, short! I can imagine poor Mickey's frustration with Jake!

This is the first part of a 2 part story! PD Singer wrote part 2!
Very creative and funny read! I don't want to give anything away, but I really loved this one!
I liked the premise of this one but it was way too short to really enjoy.
