Sagittarius Blues is an ok romance that attempts to show a young man finding himself and moving beyond his first crush. The characters are decent but they never truly feel real. I had a lot of problems with the main couple in that they never felt like they should be together. The age difference comes across as quite a bit and the two men never feel equal. The story seems to lecture at places and tries to show growth through consequences but just didn’t really appeal to me unfortunately. The writ ...more
A Hearts On Fire Review


This story was difficult for me to rate. It had some good parts, okay parts and boring parts. This is my first time reading Ms. Strauss who has good ideas in this one and I would try something else by her in the future. The immediate future? No.

This story is about a 20 year old man/boy, Ryan who is a Sagittarius and has the blues. He's in love/lust with his best friend, Chad who used him to rub one out a few times but is not gay. (Chad's a jerk, IMO) Chad's so not g

SAGITTARIUS BLUES by Katrina Strauss is a present you will want to open again and again.

Ryan is an almost twenty-one year old college student who is in love with his straight best friend. He lives in his mom's basement and does a weekly video blog in which he makes fun of his job and especially his boss.

Ryan's dad died when he was a child and Ryan has had to be the man of the house since then. He goes to college and works part time to help his mother with the rent and other bills. The only time

4.5 stars

Another gem by the talented Ms. Strauss! Usually I connect primarily with one of the two main characters in a story. Yet as I was reading this story, I found myself switching sides between Ryan and Greg. I completely related to Greg's need to help others in an effort to repay the good Karma he received when he was a troubled young man. His need counsel and tendency to be more serious than the situation calls for is something I have been guilty of many times! At the same time, I found my

On one hand, it's a nice story -- with Ryan (one of the main characters, the younger one) showing the "journey" of growing up. From one college boy having a crush with his best friend, and blasting his employer on the Net, doesn't think of the effect that he makes by doing so, to someone who takes responsibility and matures up.

On the other hand, the other character, Greg, comes as judgmental in the middle of the book. He quickly dismissed Ryan's action as childish and unforgiving, which doesn't
3.5 Stars

Parts of this book I liked very much, other parts not as much. The interaction between Greg and Ryan didn't work as well for me as I would have liked. (view spoiler)

I really like Katrina Strauss and look forward to all her new releases. Because of that built-up good will, I probably liked this more than I would have if it had been an author I was unfamiliar with.
This book just didn't ever come together. I felt that Greg was too harsh with Ryan and that turned me off from his character. I also felt that Ryan's "comedy" podcast was incredibly un-funny and that decreased my enjoyment. The rest of the book had plot points and characters all over the place and i

Well it's more a 2.5 Stars. I finished last night and yet I couldn't remember one of the main character's name(Greg.) That is never good. A book(Characters) should be memorable and leave a lasting impression. Unfortunately it fell short and I also found the story to be a little preachy. That said I did enjoy the young Ryan character. I liked his flawed, comedic self. If your a fan of the author I'd say buy it, if not you may want to pass.

A very sweet and comtemporary story; showing some of the situations that nowdays young people are living. Katrina show us a young guy trying to find his way in the world, and how he grows himself in the process. It's not a story about gay love. It's a book about relationship, friendship and family and how gay people have to deal with them today.A very recommendable reading.

Good holiday m/m romance about a college student whose inflammatory vlog personality has unexpected negative impacts on his life. For some reason, this never really came together for me and I haven't been able to figure out why.

Really cute story. Parts of it seemed rather idealized, but it's a romance. W/E.
