Vicky is seventy-three and would never be called a typical older woman. Oh no. She lives her life to the fullest doing everything from stripping for charity, ridding the world of drug dealers (one dealer at a time), mending a little boy's heart when he thinks he will be forced to give away his beloved puppy as well as various other things. Vicky is a blast. Age does not slow her down in any way and she'll be the first to prove it if questioned. She's funny, at times a bit much, but in the end she's the type of woman that anyone would love to have as a friend.
A hilarious tale of dognapping, kidnapping, a scorned lover, a psychotic family, a really old grandfather who suddenly discovers he's gay, disturbed employers, donuts, a cute dog and the two men in the middle of it all.
This book had me laughing from the first few pages and I didn't stop until I got to the end. John Inman has definitely gained a new fan.

This is a great follow up to Dirty Drag. It takes place immediately after Rick and Ashley leave the bar after hooking up in the bathroom. They go to Rick's place where the fun begins... again. Ashley is a hot mess. His make-up is smeared, his wig is all over the place and he's still wearing his slutty female clothes, stilettos included. After a bit of eating and teasing the men make their way to Rick's bathroom and the fun starts all over again. Ashley going home the next morning is hilarious. He looks like a 'drugged crack whore' still wearing his girly clothes which now includes a My Little Pony shirt. At Ashley's place we are introduced to his friend and I assure you (as the blurb says) you will never look at a Q-tip the same again. :)
It's no secret that I am a big fan of this author. I devour his work as quickly as it is released. Once again Kyle Adams left me smiling. This of course after a bit of giggling while reading the story. Rick and Ashley are hilarious and you can't help but adore Ashley's best friend. I hope to see more of these guys soon.

Easy to do considering he is a Goodreads friend. While I knew about this short, I did not know that it had already been released. I missed it by a day. I don't do that. I always try to read his work on the day of release. Thankfully, I was able to grab it as soon as I noticed it and stopped reading something else to jump into it. The other book can wait. :)
I don't normally post reviews on the blog I participate in for super short stories. Dirty Drag is super short, read by me in only a few minutes. Because of my love of all things written by Kyle Adams I am making an exception in this case as far as a blog post is concerned.
Ashley is on a mission to prove a point. He wants to prove that he can pass as a woman in a dive bar. He wants to find a guy, blow him and then move on quickly before the man finds out he's not a female. It doesn't quite happen that way. The first man to approach Ashley in the bar is a redneck with the worst pick up lines ever. He is dispatched quickly. The next one, however, is different. Rick is a sexy man who obviously wants Ashley but Rick has plans other than having Ashley blow him quickly under the table and then take off.
This is a quick, very sexy read. Both characters are perfect for the story. As mentioned above, there is not much to this as it is only a few pages, but this author has once again put so much in those few pages that I did not feel cheated. I always end his books wanting more but never not satisfied with the resolution.

I have read other reviews and I have seen where folks were totally offended by this book. There's an issue with a cat that is disturbing and every other kind of strange thing you can imagine. This is not meant to be taken seriously. It is a satire. Don't read this if you are easily offended. It is definitely not for you.

Curt is a gay man who looks and acts straight so he goes to his oldest and dearest friend (Teri, a flamboyant gay man) to get lessons in Greater Gayness. Follow along as Teri teaches his friend all there is to know about being and acting gay. You will fall in love with Teri and his gay dog, Cary Grant. You will laugh from the very first few lines until you get to THE END.
This book is simply brilliant. Definitely one of my all-time faves.

They creep me out. So what happens? My favorite short story writer on here not only puts out a new short about clowns but it's a Halloween story and he was kind enough to send me an advance copy.... and here's the best part... just because. No expectations for a good review or anything. He just sent the story (to me and others) a couple of weeks before release date because he's a good guy. I had to point that specific part out because I have been offered ARC's in exchange for a "glowing" review by others (and no, I haven't accepted those). It's nice to see an author do it just because.
This was a blast. Two men go to a haunted house. One is terrified of anything creepy... mainly clowns. The other is all eager to live a little, have a little fun so he drags his boyfriend to this old house and what they find inside is not what either expected.
I hate it but I can't say anymore without totally giving away the story. As with others from this author, there are quite a few funny parts but there are also some creepy parts (did I mention the damn clowns????)
Once again, Kyle Adams wrote a very entertaining story. I was very surprised over how everything played out but it was perfect. So much said in only a few pages. I look forward to (hopefully?) another installment with these guys.
Any story that can make me giggle is a good story and this one definitely had me giggling.

Whit meets Zack who is a new member of his role-playing game. Whit is shy. Zack is not. Whit is unable to even speak to Zack unless it is part of the game and then it's his character doing the talking. What is so funny about this story is Whit's inner dialogue. I found myself laughing out loud many times while Whit was trying to come up with something witty to say to Zack without looking stupid.
This totally had me cracking up. I just discovered this author today and I have already breezed through everything he's written that is listed on here. He is definitely a new fave. (less)

Brian and Wyatt are now in a relationship but the role-playing hasn't stopped. I actually liked the ending better on this one. It was an "Aw" moment. I hope the author keeps going with these guys. When I read a (super) short story I usually feel cheated at the end because I feel that it ended too quickly. This author manages to say everything that needs to be said in only a few pages. Great story.(less)

Wyatt is a shy, self-proclaimed geek. He has the hots for a coworker, Brian, who he feels is out of his league. Brian invites him to a party where he has to dress up like a superhero... which is perfect because Wyatt is a comic book junkie. Wyatt shows up for the party and gets a hell of a lot more than he expected. :)
The writing style is perfect. The characters are perfect. The story is perfect. Even though it is quite short I never felt like I was missing anything. I now have to read everything I can by this author. (less)

After being married for almost 26 years, I can relate to just about everything mentioned. There is one part about the author's husband and the barbecue grill that was so funny and it was exactly like the grilling experience at my house. I haven't laughed this hard while reading something in a very long time.(less)
