I liked this short story but it was more MM erotica than MM romance. We knew nothing about the characters except their feelings for each other. Parents and friends were mentioned like they were an important part of the MC's lives but we heard nothing about them, no visits, phone calls, etc. This had the potential to be a 5 star story but missed the mark for me.

This is a review of a second read of An Inconvenient Hankering in June, 2014. My first read of the book was in summer 2011. I originally gave it 5 stars but dropped it down to 3 stars after re-reading it.

Hank and Sam had been best friends and constant companions/roommates since they were 16 years old. While in collage, they share a small dorm room and start a habit of bringing home girls at the same time and having sex with them a few feet apart from each other. Pretty soon Sam realizes he is mo

The best part about this book was the pun on the name of one of the characters (Hank) and the title.
Otherwise it was very so-so. Nothing at all hot or even luke warm about it, and the story line was not powerful enough to make up for it.

This was pretty short, at just under 70 pages, and I loved every bit of it. This one was loaded with angst, which I love! Sam and Hank meet in high school, when they are 16, when Sam is tasked with showing Hank, the new kid, around the school. They are pretty much inseparable from then on out, which includes rooming together in college and picking up girls. Until Sam realizes he's more interested in Hank than the girls. After graduation Sam leaves town to get himself sorted out, all the while th ...more

My Review: I'm always interested to see how different authors deal with coming out stories. This one was interesting, but in my opinion, could really have been a lot longer. I would have loved to see a bit more of Sam's struggle with his sexuality and especially more of his more of his acceptance of himself. As for his love interest, there was so much I would have loved to know about him and his thinking that was impossible in this format. A short story from one character's point of view is nece ...more

I saw a friend reading this and was intrigued by the premise. This is a short novella. My biggest issue is the way the story is told. We are told a lot of stuff but I never felt a connection to Sam or Hank. Would you believe I started skimming pages? And when the guys finally hook up it wasn't even mind blowing.

I just re-read this story and I liked it a lot again!!! It's all about the sexual tension for me. I hope Ms. Bishop writes a sequel because the ending was too abrupt. I was left feeling like I only read half of a potentially great love story. The new relationship between Sam and Hank doesn't "happen" until the end and when it does it's small.... really small. BUT overall I thought it was a good GFY story.
I did go looking for this author on the web to see if she had a WIP, but I couldn't find he

A fairly quick, easy read about two guys who meet at school, go through college (and lots of girls!) together, and then after a time apart, end up house sharing again and finally acting on the attraction that has simmered for years.

This story was strange...even if logical, too. I kind of understand both Sam and Hank behavior toward girls or even themselves. Maybe they were not ready to admit to their mutual attraction, but to be so scared off, was kid of turn off.

Very sweet. From best friends to lover. The end was a bit rushed, but still, it is a real sweet story.

Sienna Bishop has been a wannabe author most of her life. She fell in love with writing and romance at an early age, but it took a long time for her to find the right inspiration to turn her two loves into one. It wasn't until a movie broke her heart in the spring of 2006 that she found her true inspiration in the form of M/M romance. That started her on a writing rollercoaster that she hasn't cli ...more
