HOT & SWEET friends-to-lovers extravaganza!

And good lord but does Piper know how to write scorching sex: DIRTY, sticky, and a little bit kinky.

TOO SHORT! That was way too short! Ugh. I need to create a badge to officially declare my Piper Vaughn fangirl status. This woman kills me with everything she writes. It goes from adorable, to raw and naughty and maybe just a little bit dirty all within the pages that have me blushing and making a fool out of myself as I read it around people who must think by now I am a bit nutty.

The picture prompt for this could not have been more adorable or perfect. Gah! Just, yeah. So stinking cute, playfu

It's a nice, sweet story. Yet, I couldn't help thinking this as another example of an author imposing what she (and many other m/m romance authors regardless their gender) thought about men: that men don't talk about their feelings whatsoever. A misguided popular belief that jumps from "men talk about their emotion less than woman do" (which is correct) into "men don't talk about their emotion whatsoever, unless their lives depend on it" (which is not). Hence, tons and tons of m/m romance

2.8 Stars - cute but it never really took off and became wonderfully memorable.. - but a nice YA shortie

An Oral Fixation is another free quick read about young men and wistful love. In my opinion an okay read but not superb.
(By the way.. Is it my limited knowledge in the English language or isn't this a odd title?)

It all start with this first sentence:

I didn't dislike it. But didn't really like it either. It seems like a pretty shallow story. All we know about Cooper is he's hot and smiled at quinn... and that quinn has to listen to two years of Cooper's sex marathons and they make him sick but still don't know why he loves coop. Some how him making gestures with his tongue made Quinn realize he was in love with Cooper?

Even after the beginning which i hated then it felt like all we saw was the physical lust stuff but they kept saying it was

The prompt photo is one of my favorites in the event -- and knowing that Piper Vaughn is the one nabbing it, gives me assurance that the story will be wonderful (because that's Piper's style).

And Piped doesn't let me down. The story is wonderful from start to finish. It's the best friends turn lovers theme and it's very well done. Love the uncertainty that Quinn feels, when Cooper seems to change the game by doing the flirting. It's nicely played. Oh, and the scene of that prompt photo is also w

Quinn has been in love with Cooper for 2 years, 4 month, 19 days, 3 hours and 42 minutes. The only problem is they never seem to be single at the same time.
But now, on a road trip to an amusement park for Spring Break, they finally are.

I love Quinn and Cooper. There is a sweet , slow build up to Quinn and Coop finally getting to be together. When Coop tells Quinn that he has wanted him forever, longer than forever, it is sweet and perfect. And the sex scenes in this story? Sweet baby Jesus in th

Piper Vaughn’s An Oral Fixation is a warm, light adorable read filled with teasing, licking, sucking, and fu….*clears throat* FUN. I was going to say fun. ;)

”Quinn watched in absolute fascination as Cooper ate that vanilla cone in the lewdest, dirtiest, most scandalous manner possible. For Quinn, he might as well have been watching porn because he was about three seconds from coming by the time it was over.”

Quinn has been crushing and lusting after his roommate, Cooper, for years. With

I was excited to read this short by Piper Vaughn, an author with many books on my to-read shelf. It fully lived up to my expectations. I really got into this sweet, hot, romantic read. I always want more from these shorts so they are almost never 5 stars... grr give me more! Oh, and I adored the picture that inspired this short!

An Oral Fixation (need I say more?) was a friends to lover story that was: cute, hot, and kinky (view spoiler).

Thank you Dee for sending it my way!

I liked the writing on this one & it was cute but in the end, it didn't feel like it was about a heck of a lot other than being hot for each other. That's probably more than enough for a lot of readers. I'd have liked it if we could have explored why the two MC never got together in the first place and what's the big reason for their attraction. Some more conversations would have made this seem less superficial.

I don't understand why people try to find the meaning of the universe on the pages of a M/M romance and want to read more than the actual words the author wrote.

For those who have never had a crush on someone else, waiting for weeks and months for that person to notice you, THIS is the way that feels.

An Oral Fixation incarnates the anguish of wanting someone for so long that such a simple thing as lust becomes something else, deeper and bigger.

Do people really know why they fall in love? I don

Offered for FREE from the M/M Romance Group.

So good and sweet!

The first reaction I normally have to a very well written shorty is always MORE! Honestly, with this one I think the length worked for it instead of against it. Has it been any longer there probably would have been angst and/or unnecessary drama that would have taken away from the beauty of this story. Would I take more Quinn and Cooper? Hell Yes! Did I feel satisfied at the end? Also yes. This was a great, super sweet, off the charts hot and very well written shorty and to me, a great introduct ...more

It takes a true talent to write a fabulous short story, and Piper did it! Quinn has been pining away for his best friend, Cooper, for a couple of years now. But on their spring break getaway to California, the walls come tumbling down, and Coop finally lets Quinn know that he has been as in love with him as Quinn was with him. Both were too fearful of saying anything, however, for fear of messing up their friendship. But then Coop finally takes the plunge, and gives Quinn a fun lick dur

2.5 stars. The lead up to Quinn and Cooper getting together was really well written. Enough background information to know where they were both coming from and to believe that they were both harboring crushes on each other for at least a little while. But, the romantic in me says that when you go from friends to lovers, that first time together should be magical. It was not. Maybe I shouldn't let my disappointment in the last 10% of the book weigh down my rating so heavily but I can't help feeli ...more

A Joyfully Jay review.

4.5 stars

Vaughn embraces the art of a short story with this adorable and well done tale of friends finally acting on their desires and becoming lovers. It’s told from Quinn’s POV, and we can see from the very beginning how he’s been longing for Cooper. He understands his friend completely, and he wants him wholly. But he also respects what they have, their friendship, and would never poach. So he’s been watching from the sidelines, hurting a little, but never ready to make

This plot has been visited endless times and it never gets old to me. I also like how this author writes friends-to-lovers stories. My only regret is that there was nothing special about the characters to make the story really stand out. It's a nice story though.
*pant pant* A slow burn, yet fast as well. Friends to lovers, dirty talk, and a happy ending. Love it, simple as that. I wish it was longer as in a full length novel, but hell its free so I"m happy. High fives you Ms. Vaughn.

Free story, written from my prompt, by an awesome lady ( future wife if I can ever convince her that jordie doesn't love her like I do ;) ), which I loved because she wrote me some awesome tension. How can i NOT give it 5 stars???

To quote Penny Arcade there was a lot of "Your dick tastes like Butterscotch" in this book.
The writing wasn't bad, and I like Piper its just that it was too saccharine.

Superb. I don't know how someone gets a long slow burn, endless tantalising foreplay, and scorching hot sex into 22 pages, but Vaughn manages it.

Cute short m/m romance about a college student who's had a crush on his bisexual roommate for years, but the timing hasn't worked out to say anything about it.
This just kind of missed the mark for me. I think it was because it is so short, I just didn't feel like the characters were real.

Cute, short and very sweet, this is the story of two friends who realize there is potential for a lot more between them. Only this turns out to be easier said than done. As soon as one is available, the other has a boyfriend (or the occasional girlfriend in Cooper's case), and vice versa. Masters of hiding what they really want, these college students dace around each other for quite a while before breaking the pattern.

Quinn is the more hesitant of the two, suffering in silence as Cooper seems t

They were so hot together. I'm going to always wish the short stories were longer though.

It was short and cute and sweet and totally Piper Vaughn. I don't have much to say. I was going to rate it a 3 for the first half because Quinn kept gushing about Cooper and I didn't see it yet. But the flirting and kissing/licking leading up to that hot as hell hotel scene. It turned me up so I'm turning the rating up.

Cute and sexy, short & sweet.
