Really 3.5 stars, but I'll bump it up to 4 because it was better than 3 stars.

Carl has been living with self denial all of his life. He likes receiving oral sex from men at the local gay bar, but in his mind he is not homosexual, just a man who likes a getting a blow job from other men. Carl is a blue collared worker who does what is expected from him. He has a girlfriend, works hard and hangs out with roudy homophobic friends who does not know about his occasional trips to the gay bar.

When Carl...more
Very few authors can take a stupid, ignorant, hypocritical homophobe and turn them into a sympathetic character. Hated Carl at first but the change in him as the story progressed was a delight to read. Loved the sweet Vincent. One for all the GFY fans out there. Top marks!

I really enjoyed this short read. Great arc in the story, good idea and got the point across without ever saying it. I would love to read more of this couple, however I'm not a fan of accents in writing. I find it very off putting and distracting, especially since I didn't recognise the accent and it made it hard to decipher some of the meanings.
Interesting story about a construction worker who's in self denial about his sexuality. He's got a girlfriend, likes to hang out with the guys and secretly picks up guys to give him bjs. One night he picks up a gorgeous man who appears to also have a blood fetish and when the night's over Carl can't forget the other man. Turns out Vinnie is a lot more than he appears and Carl's life won't ever be the same again.

I liked this story despite the fact that I didn't like Carl all that much. His consta...more
One of my favorite sayings!

Can't wait to read this.
This title comes close to being a short story because it's barely 100 pages but there's a lot of bulk for so few pages. There's also some grammar issues and typos etc but I just found it to be a short, fun read that surprised me a lot more then I thought it would.

Carl starts out as the type of guy I usually hate in books and movies; the asshole who dislikes himself so he says crap about others. His slow development to someone who is fine with being gay and even learning and adopting habits and m...more
Not sure how I feel after reading this story. It came right after the "Adam & Peter" series where the vampire element was distinctively wrapped around the story.

[spoiler ahead] In "Suck This, there was never any clear mention of what Vincent really was (the nickname Vinnie just makes me thinks of a kid, not full grown vampire). If you read the summary and are no stranger to this author, then the conclusion is obvious. Otherwise, except some allusive hints, you could just think Vincent was in...more
Writing review for this book brought up very ambivalent thoughts aka this book was not exactly my cup of tea. Our main hero Carl was drop out from high school and construction yard worker, not bright and not pretty one. He had also nasty habit to talk to his cock, nick named "Little Carl". He had girlfriend aka pussy for weekends and little bad habit to get his cock sucked by pretty boys, but he did not consider himself dirty cocksucker. Author managed to portrait ordinary primitive male who is...more
My second experience with A.M. Riley's story, and this is her earlier one. I enjoy this story very much. I am not very huge fan of "gay for you" theme. Oh, I like them okay but I prefer both men know and admit that they're gay. This one has a sense of "gay for you" theme but it's really good. I like the portrayal of Carl from being attracted to Vincent until all out change in him. And well, it never says out loud that Vincent is a vampire (he is, isn't he, with his habit of biting Carl's neck) s...more
This book is even harder to rate. I love but very disappoint in this book. Reason number one: it did not, I repeat, did not once mention someone is actual a vampire. I knew who is vampire but it never mentioned in the book. I adore the relationship between Vincent and Carl. It was beautiful written too. For some reason, I think the author ran out of idea or rushing to finish the book. If the author re-write it, it probably will be million time better.

So, to rate this...I'll give it a 3.5 stars...more
This story was a little hard to follow at times and the dialect was confusing. But, I found Carl and Vinnie to be likable characters and was happy with the ending.
A construction worker discovers that he really is gay after hooking up with a gay vampire. It was ok.
old favourite

really intriguing writing and great pace.

I like this style of m/m romance a lot
So, this novella got 4 stars but is more like 3.5.
