Is seeing really believing? Hank would never dream of coming on to the most striking guy at the bar—but it’s his lucky night since Thomas, the burgundy-haired vision in black lipstick and mirrored shades, takes it upon himself to make the first move.

While the encounter itself is mind-blowing, the hot-and-heavy grapple in the janitor’s closet isn’t the only way in which Tho

Quirky and sexy. JCP excels at different and compelling. I wouldn't say no to more.

I can't tag this little HOT short by one of my favorite authors (JCP, you ALWAYS deliver!) the way I want to because it will give away the "surprise" ending. Honestly, this book needs no twist, it could just be JCP-written smut and I would be a very happy camper!

It was a really short story but can I just say WOW! I loved it! I don't even know why! I just finished and I am still sitting here and reeling! It was AWESOME! JP Price sure knows how to write and write good! Love her books both short or long. This was a real treat!

Despite being very short, it still managed to make me happy to have read it.

And it had a very nice surprise at the end.

And it made me covet a purple boa coat.

Recommended.

The final "twist" was pretty predictable, but it doesn't change the fact that JCP can pack amazing characters and writing in just a few pages. I really wouldn't mind reading more about this couple.
No rating because I couldn't give it more than 3 stars and I don't want to bring the average rating down.

Now, Fire Thief...
It's a short story, so I won't blabber about the plot. It's just very, VERY good and JCP has created actual personalities in so few pages.
I think it would make a good full-length story, as the characters are quite interesting, maybe surprising, and I think their traits are worth exploring and discussing further.

This story appeared in a charity anthology a few years ago and I'd always liked it, but also always felt it needed something more. I enjoyed expanding and deepening the story for this re-release, and I was especially pleased with the new direction in which I was able to take the plot.

I gave this four stars because it left me wanting more! As always, JCP does short like few others, but I want more of these two so much that I can't give it five. Wonderfully crafted.

Very good steamy short m/m story about two guys who strike some sparks together in a bar.

Hahaha. Yep.

I have albinism, which comes with poor eyesight. I actually see pretty well, considering, but there are a lot of things I do by feel. I was chuckling at one aspect of this story by last attempt of the MC's (you'll know what I mean when you read it) because I know exactly how the guy did it.

I'm not a huge fan of short stories, but this one is perfect, and erotic, and not at all ableist, and I'd like to double the # of stars, please. :)

Awesome short story!!!!

I loved the surprise ending. I never guessed what was going to happen. There was clues but I didnt 'get them' till I was finished.

I adore Jordan Castillo Price....she rocks!!

A short, hot little story about a sexual encounter in a bar, with a twist that you may or may not see coming. Like so many of JCP's stories, the excellent writing makes it greater than the sum of its parts.

Ooooh, this was HOT. And typical JCP, which means a perfect mixture of reality, mystery, humor and sexiness. A great short story.

It's almost impossible to write a review about this very short story without spoilers. All I can say is that Jordan Castillo Price's writing always works for me. Always. This time she delivered a surprise in the end. A surprise that made me mentally go through the story again looking for hints even though I had finished the story already... And THAT always tells me how very much I actually liked what I read. :)

Without spoiling anything I'll just say this: Fire Thief is a hot, compact, perfect "s

I loved it. It was sweet, well written and interesting. Characters were unique and well revealed.

The (view spoiler) was easy to guess, but it didn't diminish my interest. The reactions and everything felt very real. I wish to read more about these characters.

Nice smutty short. On one hand, the twist was easy to spot (view spoiler), but on the other, the atmosphere was great (as usual from the author, though I'd say it goes in her upper tier as well) and made you suspect a variety of sinister things.
