A wonderful follow-up to Stung MCs: Crunch and Victor's story...

I was delighted and I was blushing... Crunch and Victor got only one scene but it was HOT HOT HOT! ;)

I just wish they got more of a HEA - Crunch's leave of absence was too short!!! *pouts*
It was so good to have a little bit of extra time with Crunch and Victor. The trouble is, rather than feeling satisfied, it's left me wanting to know even more about these two. I love Mr Crunch with those sexy leather trousers and muddy boots and Victor with his sweet little smiles and dirty talk!

This shorty serves as an epilogue of Stung. While it does not exactly spell out the answers readers are seeking for this unconventional pair of lovers, we at least get a taste of what they are both like when their life is not at stake.

Crunch decided to pay Victor a visit in the city. It was a reunion after a long parting between him and Victor subsequent to the liberation of the Honeyhill prison camp. He wasn't sure if he would be welcome with open arms by the man who fills his every waking mome

Wow. This short blew my mind. I haven't read the full length novel which precedes the events in this short, but I got a pretty good idea of what the world building must be like and I am definitely intrigued. This is a historical, set in a dystopian/zombie apocalyspe world, if I got it right. The MCs hadn't seen each other in a good long while, and they reunite for one night. Boy was that reunion hawtttttt. But it wasn't 14 pages of PWP. Everything was described very vividly and I am shocked at h ...more
But...but...but it was so short! I feel like at this point I'm pretty emotionally invested in this couple and K.A. Metikan is clearly playing with my emotions. Why?!!!! I cant even even right now *sigh* too short! They're such a precious couple, I hope they can get their shit together.

4 I so want more of this story stars!!

After this taste of hope we were left wanting more. Even though they started with acting on their needs with others they ended up having a special bond. I loved getting another glimpse into Victor and Crunch with this short little story.

I know it was written as an epilogue but I was STILL left with wanting more and I hope maybe one day Victor & Crunch will jump back into the heads of K.A. Merikan and demand that they want more. I'm a hopeless romantic
It was wonderful to be given the opportunity to revisit Victor and Crunch, my guys from 'Stung'. Seeing them again fairly recently after the intense ending of the book was a great way for me to reconnect. Wait, what am I saying? It wasn't me that needed to reconnect, it was them! *grins*

After several months of staying in touch through letters, Crunch surprises Victor at his home when Crunch gets unexpected leave due to a blizzard. Crunch isn't 100 percent sure of his reception because why would

When we published “Stung”, we didn’t want to have an epilogue. We felt it would unnecessarily stretch out the story. But the little idea of ‘what happened next’ with the couple, kept knocking on our door. So we decided to put out this FREE extra story of a little reunion Victor and Crunch managed to have back in London :)

If you’ve read the outstanding Stung, you already know that a happy ending for Victor and Crunch wouldn’t, or couldn’t, include anything quite so simple as the two of them riding off into the sunset together. Crunch has to save the world, after all, and Victor had a life to return to that has nothing to do with the hard manual labor and harsh conditions he was forced to live under at HoneyHill, where gruesome happenings were par for the course, and shutting down that operation then cleaning up ...more

3.5 rounded up.

Another cute little look at Victor and Crunch a few months after the previous book. I wanted a bit more of what was happening on the plague front, but overall it was a nice little peek at them coming back together.

THE perfect short story follow up to Stung. The chemistry between Victor and Crunch is titillating and seductive. They're banter as fun and enigmatic as before. I can't get enough of this world and the guys within it, to include Victor and Crunch! Once again Kat and Agnes rule the literary world!

Too short, way too short. That goes both for the reunion of Victor and Crunch and for this book. I love the interaction between these two men and hope we'll get to see more of them in the future.

A short follow up in Victor and Crush’ story, it describes the first encounter between the lovers after the camp experience. Victor is back at home, and some months have gone by, when Crush gets some free time and is able to visit the sweet prisoner he cannot forget. Overwhelmed by the luxury surrounding Victor, Crush feels utterly inappropriate till Victor sweet welcome reassures Crush he has not been forgotten. They pick up where they left it with an easiness which talks about true co

I loved the entire series of Zombie Gentlemen novellas. I really hope the authors revisit some of the different characters I've become vested in. As for this story, I find the final sentence extremely ominous and I'm hoping for another short story to prove my first impressions wrong.
