Screw the Fags
When Cosmo Rawlins makes a special request for his upcoming birthday, his toppy boyfriend strikes a deal with him: if Cosmo gives up smoking, Alasdair will buy him a car. What Alasdair doesn’t realise, however, is that a week of keeping a close eye on his bratty submissive will test the very limits of his libido.
This was very necessary after reading Screwing the System. It showed me a bit of Cosmo and Alasdair ten months on and they seem to have grown together. I loved seeing them comfortable with each other. Part of the happy ever after feeling which we romantics crave.
I loved Alasdair and Cosmo's lovely story in Screwing the System (my review) and this free mini sequel (35 pages) gave me a brief meeting with them ten months after the novel ended.
Their HEA life rolls on but there are still some small issues to be resolved. Cosmo wants a driver's license and a car. Alasdair want Cosmo to quit with smoking. Time for more rules in the house...
I know that some of the people reading this as a freebie probably won’t have read the original story, and I did my best to avoid giving spoilers. I hope rea ...more
This was again, fun, sexy, hot and the BEST follow up to Screwing the System to see what they boys are up to. Oh yeah, what ARE they up to?
“You look like you’re planning some kind of sadistic challenge for me.”
“Oh yes. I most certainly am.”
Like the summary says; Cosmo wants a car and Alasdair wants him to stop smoking. They make a deal and wha ...more
Alasdair has wonderful ways to help Cosmo give up smoking.
This was a short, hot, sexy little read.
Not just that she writes an extremely realistic BDSM which has all the dots and crosses all the t's and is a hundred times more interesting and amusing than all that distorted and abused "fantasy-BDSM" you get to read from others, she also has an innate humour within her stories which has me go from a tender smile to open laughter and back, all the while enjoying her very erotic descriptions of male loving.
This one was hilarious, warming like a good ...more
'Despite the whole corporate arsehole daytime act, underneath it all Alasdair was a hot leather Daddy with cool tattoos and a secret marshmallow centre. Submitting to him just felt right, for some bizarre reason.'
This free short follows on from the events of Screwing the System. I think it could probably be read as a stand alone and there aren’t really any spoilers in it but it does make much more sense if you’ve read the earlier story. Screw the Fags picks up some 10 months after the end of the Screwing the System when Alisdair is trying to decide what to buy Cosmo for his birthday (which is on Valentine’s Day). Cosmo wants a car and Alisdair agrees to buy him one if he quits smok ...more
I love Josephine Myles, and I adore Cosmo and Alasdair. This was a short and sweet follow-up to Screwing the System. I was thrilled to see the guys settled and happy. I wouldn't suggest reading this as a stand-alone; it really is a sort of epilogue to the novel.
Also, I was somewhat disappointed not to see Cosmo's Nan in this one; at the end of book 1, she's supposed to come work for Alasdair, but she was barely mentioned in this story.
The sign of a wonderful book, to me, is when you are doing something mundane and suddenly a character pops into your head. You know exactly how they would react in the situation, how they would stand, feel, react and what expression they would have whilst this was all happening.
That's what Josephine Myles's give me through her writing : company at unexpected moments.
Great follow-up to book 1! I love these guys. Cosmo is just as snarky and sexy as ever, and Alisdair is the same ole Boss-man.
This is mostly about Cosmo kicking the habit, the incentive Ali finds to make it happen, and, of course, seeing how their relationship has evolved. I would definitely not mind seeing these guys again some day.
I had read the first book many years ago and so had forgotten all about them but it was easy to read this as a standalone.
Amazon freebie! My favorite.
It’s especially my favorite when it’s a short story follow-up to a book I liked.
Picking up with Alasdair and Cosmo where Screw the System leaves us, this cute short story is a delight. Highly recommend. Any scene with Mavis is a guaranteed good time and she gets a few cameos here.
