I don’t read romance novels; they are shallow and predictable, and diabetically-oversweet. I have no idea why I thought gay romance would be different. Gosh what a soap opera this was: Cinderella who stormed out of the ashes to find happiness (the path is as always ”per aspera ad astra” but this time in quite light variant); so much money and so little body fat. Oh yes, the bodies that would make poor Michelangeo’s David ashamed are everywhere you look. Of course there is an evil mother in law ( ...more

OK I'll admit it. I'm a die hard romantic. I love a good love story and revel in the idea that there's someone out there for everyone, waiting in the wings to sweep you off your feet. Unfortunately, society has also let reality sink into this concept as well, and I'm also constantly awaiting the other shoe to drop as well. Juggling these two concepts has kept much of my love life in a constant contact tizzy. That is, if you call what I have a "love life".

I picked up the book "Hot Sauce" because

So, I read this for a class paper in which I was arguing for the inclusion of GLBT romance novels in libraries' romance sections and readers' advisory. If the point is fantasy romances, relationship hijinks, snappy dialogue and happy endings, after all, GLBT genre romances qualify just as well as any others.

And as far as the romance and plot goes, this was fine, not my cup of tea (I found Brad rather annoyingly obsessive and juvenile, and Troy kind of distant and cardboard, so I wouldn't categor
While this goes into the various machinations, friendships, angst, anxiety and partying that goes on in and out of gay relationships, let’s face it, the book has some truly smoking sexual scenes in it. There are so many it’s hard to say what kind of PWP this is: Porn with Plot or Porn without Plot.

I’m not complaining. In books about homosexual relationships, I don’t mind the sexual aspects one little bit, especially when they’re so well described as they are here. The relationship aspect isn’t

I got this book for (basically) free from a library book sale. It's definitely a "light read" with lots of drama. It's about a gay male couple, Brad and Troy. Brad is the protagonist. He is working-class who became a success working in kitchens and is now the owner of a bunch of hot Boston restaurants. (But never seems to work.) Mostly he just obsesses over his boyfriend. Even I, who prefers the ladies, fell in love with Troy. He's rich, funny, dreamy, and does things like surprises Brad with we ...more

I had no idea that gay romance books even existed until a few months ago. I’m a member of a list serve called Fiction_L and we were discussing romance books when someone mentioned the website The authors, Pomfret and Whittier, met in a bar and are collaborating on a whole line of romance novels. Our library doesn’t carry any, so I had to get this from a neighboring one. I admit I was a bit leery in the beginning, but this is a very classy read. The sex scenes are tastefully done, ...more

Hot Sauce didn't hold my attention like Razor Burn did. Razor Burn took place in a business world I understand — marketing. High fashion and gourmet cooking are not my thing so all the descriptions of cooking and dressing got rather boring after awhile. That leaves a man, Brad, who is too insecure to confide in his boyfriend and the boyfriend, Troy, who is too clueless to ask Brad what's on his mind. Then there is Aria the overdone killjoy who is so obviously not Troy's type to be an unbelievabl ...more
