This short PWP was just okay, which is disappointing because it had all the right ingredients to make it awesome.

A former Marine

makes a coffee date with a hot guy

and they end up having sex in the bathroom of a Starbucks.

(It may be trashy but it's oh so hot -- except here).

I mean a marine, coffee and sexy times in public! I love all of those things! It just didn't work for me here. The sex wasn't hot and the dialogue was sort of cheesy. It's free though so...
I don't know why I assumed this would be a fluffy and sweet read, cause fluffy and sweet it was not. This ultra short story (about ex-marine F.B.'s first date with super market hunk Matt), is a smutfest from beginning to end. Light, very hot and funny too.
Here's an extract that best describes the book:

“Hey,” F.B. drawled.

His accent always got thicker in direct proportion to his level of horniness and at that moment his cock was getting ready to bust the fly of his camos wide open, making F.B.
Wow, just wow!
Such a short read, but smoking! Hottest thing I've read in awhile!
And the characters are captivating, I'd like to read a longer novel about them.

I loved it a lot. Smoking hotness and sexiness but I wish it had more into it. I felt it was too short. Still great work.
The first date, Short and Sweet at 9 pages. Emotional angst coupled with hot passion.

F.B. and Matt have been stalking me. They keep showing up in anthologies and random ebooks I accumulate. I am really enjoying their story. Here is a list of the ones I have read and hopefully a list of all the stories about them - in order.

I should've known this would be a disaster when I noticed the author spelled the title wrong. It's a short jerk-off cliché - first time in a public bathroom, a vulgar ex-Marine calling his lover "boy" - better fit for online porn archives. It left me feeling dirty and disgusted. Thank the gods above I was given it for free. If this is a proper representation of Kiernan Kelly's writing then I won't be reading any more.
A short-short. Don't really spend much time getting to know the male lead's date. The characterization of the Marine was really what made the story enjoyable, even when taking the smut into consideration. Smut was okay, but it's so much more enjoyable when a story takes the time to develop some sort of emotional bond or engagement.

It's a cute short story. I liked it
Hell of a short story, I have to say!xD
To make it clear to everyone - this story is not much about an actual "story" or any plot in particular. Not even talking about one whole day - just one specific date.
No long introductions, you get thrown straight (teehee) in the water (read "scene"), but still it didnt bother me in this story at all.
I would say its a perfect material for some porn stories websites since the story is built on the sex scene and not much anything else.:D
Though, somehow I like
Why, oh, why do I have to read a crappy story when I decide on something different? I’m not fond of same-sex stories, I grew up reading stories with f/m couples and it’s a bit difficult veering of course. I don’t mind giving it a try, though, which I proved. I just wish those tries would prove fruitions in the form of a good, solid plot.

Well, this one wasn’t one of those. A mere PWP with a former marine and his date going for it in the Starbucks bathroom. I wouldn’t have minded a little more cha
Lovely read! Definitely 3.5 stars.

It felt like both men could be hid
Great plot... totally not what I was expecting and very intresting characters. It was more of a scene in the life of... kind of thing, but the characters were awesome. I would have loved to read a full up novel of FB's life, from his time in the Marine's and his relationship with his CO, to when he finds Matt and falls in love. So many ways this could've played out...I liked it!
Wow.. was not expecting this... I downloaded it thinking it was going to be a smoking hot marine and a woman... BOY WAS I but, hey, thats ok... It was interesting.. never really read a story just about two men before but it was pretty interesting.. I wont not read another story with two men... I'll just make sure I know thats what its about before I read
Nice short story very steamy. Will be checking out more of the free reads, like the writing style

There aren't many books that get five stars from me. However this smoking hot read managed to snag all five stars in a mere nine pages. Definitly steamed up the kindle. And I didn't even "skim" a single word! (Horrible habit of mine)
A very steamy short story. I love military men. With a story this short, it's difficult to have any plot or character development. So it was hot and sexy - definitely good enough for 3 stars.
Michelle Tempted By Books
The story is as short as the quickie in the bathroom. This is a M/M erotic story, really in line with say Penthouse Forum. It's not a romance or anything else. Just a quick, dirty erotic novella.
If you're going to write about a Marine it would help to actually know what you're talking about. Besides that, everything else was ridiculous too. Terrible, not worth reading even though it's free.
Hot little read that'll have you watching male couples enter Starbucks with a much more suspicious glint in your eye. Like it wasn't there in the first place, right?
Debra Crosby
This is same sex first date at a Starbucks. I was surprised but there was a laugh in it. His four dogs names and I will not list them
I am new to this genre, if this is a sampling - it was quick and easy to read while it was fun and hot.
I just love this book. FB and Matt have such sweet chemistry.
And more is not enough .
Thank you Kiernan
Short story...9 pages of man on man...WOW, not what i was expecting! But still oddly good!

Hot little read. I would have liked to have seen these fun characters in a longer work.

Prrety much a hot sex scene between F.B. and Matt. It was free so no complaints.

A very short story of a first date. Not a lot of depth but still an enjoyable read.
