Waiting for Clark
My friends and I love cosplay, and this year we’re going all out for our city’s con. Yup, we’re going to go as members of the Justice League. I’m going as Batman, but I can’t figure out who’s going as a Superman. My friends are being a little cagey. What’s going on? How did I go from not knowing who Superman is to making out with the guy?
In a ...more
And this, my friends, is why Annabeth Albert has become one of my auto-read authors.
What a FUN & CREATIVE interpretation of the prompt!
Waiting for Clark is one SWEET, SEXY story about estranged best friends reconnecting after half a decade apart.
He tasted like the memory of all my favorite things. Sunshine. Coffee. Laughter. Cinnamon. Clark. Mainly that. He tasted like Clark and that made him automatically my favorite flavor on earth.
What a great little treat this was!!!
*Friends to lovers ✔
*Second chance romance ✔
*Low angst, feel good story ✔
*Great characters!!! ✔
Can't gush enough! This is freebie from the M/M Romance group but I would've happily paid for it. I can't wait for more books from Annabeth Albert. 5 Stars!!!
I love free reads, and for those who didn't know, I have been reading Superman & Batman fanfics. I love the "World's Finest" getting it on! Le sigh.
That's why I'm expecting to love this...............................
AND I DID! :D
Fluffy, yearnful, nerdy, awesomesauce.
Just don't get too much annoyed by the stubbornness of Bryce and Clark. You'll live.
We should have hot gay MAINSTREAM superheroes. I hope one who has the guts cre ...more
This read like a romantic comedy movie, which is one of my most favorite genres where I curl up hugging my pillow and fall in love with the characters and cheer them on while I gush, cringe and swoon over their romance. GAH!
The author NAILED the prompt. NAILED IT and that picture, the scene with the picture was full swoon worthy that I looked like one of those girl birds from the Looney Tunes cartoons w ...more
Man, I really can't wait for Comic Con this year. I'm totally going to be looking for these two the whole time I'm there.
"I'd wanted to know what he tasted like for years now, but in that instant I realized I'd known all along: he tasted like the memory of all my favorite things."
This was very sweet, really clever and rather hawt. Bryce made me want to punch him a few times but he was afraid of losing more people he loved so I guess he can be forgiven, I just think that his reasoning for falling out with Clarke was flawed and unfair but it ...more
YES! Annabeth Albert picks up a prompt with a cartoon picture of Batman and Superman kissing. It's bound to be awsome, right?
This is a story for second chances. Bryce and Clark, or Batman and Superman (<-------see what she did there?), were college roommates and best friends. They always had amazing chemistry but acted on it only once and shared a kiss. But Clark had just gotten an amazing scholarship and had to leave, so things between them ended on a bad note, along with the fri ...more
I was expecting a cute story that I would love, but I didn't know I would love it this much. It's going straight onto my favorites list.
Bryce and Clark were friends in college. But one kiss changed everything and things haven't been the same since. Bryce hardened his heart against Clark. But Clark, after five years apart, wants his friend back and for them to maybe become more.
The tattoos totally fit who he was, and I wanted to spend hours tracing them with my tongue. All man....more
I mean, come awwwwwn! You simply cannot go wrong with this.
This has a lovely cadence to it, a rhythm that skips and then ambles, all the time keeping pace. A few hiccups, a couple of skips in the record were all that ...more
Friends-To-Lovers. Reunited (and a touch of "the one who got away") theme. Mutual Pining. NERD ARMY!!
From the moment I saw the prompt photo (and the author who snagged it), this was one of the prompts that I was excited about. And it delivered to my expectation and so much more. I love friends-to-lovers stories. LOVE THEM! They have better chance to make me feel happy compared to enemies-to-lovers theme. Albert did a very great job in this one.
Bryce and Clark reunited again after seve ...more
Ms. Albert is just awesome. How she managed to get so creative with the picture, complete the amount of character development she did, and tie together the best friends to strangers to lovers story in so few pages.....
I bow down to her. This was the cutest prompt and picture. And Bryce/ ...more
Boys and girls, stop what you are doing and read this. This is just such a great book and truly it needs to be read right now. I freaking loved it, so very much.
Thanks to all the Group members who provided awesome prompts with lovely pictures, the authors for writing free stories based on those prompts for all of us to read for free a ...more
This book was a lot of fun for a quick 77 page read.
And, as part of the Love is an Open Road 2015 series, also a free one.
The characters were extremely-well developed and the few sexy scenes were pretty hot.
Okay for *someone* unleashing their gruff inner bottom.
The Comic Con scenes were okay for me, but my favorite part was Clark's confession of love.
“That’s the sex talking—”Uhhh, no, it wasn't. : )
4.25 solid *volcano-scene* st ...more
This resonated with me something fierce.
Best friends Clark and Bryce have pretty much loved each other from the start, but they had their own reasons or excuses for not taking that next step to make themselves truly happy. One fateful night they kiss and in order to save their friendship, they stop - only to lose each other anyways to circumstance that separates them for 5 years.
I loved this pure and simple.
Clark returns and they circle and dance, deflect and avoid - afraid to really ...more
Cute prompt, cute pic, cute story!
Oh, Clark and Bryce put a big, stupid grin on my face. I was completely charmed by their nerdtastic ways.
The friends to lovers was perfectly done. In such a short story, I felt all the chemistry from their past and definitely felt all their tension in the present. These stubborn fools were so obviously made for each other, I couldn't wait for them to freaking kiss already!
Lots of tension, lots of cuddles, lots of hotness. Made for one heck of an enjoyable st ...more
I'll admit, In the beginning I wasn't a fan of Bryce. Then it was Clark that was ticking me off. But by the end the author not only made me care about both MCs, she also made me want an HEA for them. All of this plus SMOKING HOT S.E.X. in just 77 pages!
Also, thank you to the author for not giving us unnecessary angst. I was preparing to be pissed off when Bryce left on the motorcycle. I just ...more
Yes! Yes! Yes! Annabeth Albert gave me all the friends to lovers feels that I love about this trope. The pining, the fear of ruining the friendship, the shared history, the undeniable chemistry. I got it all!
Absolutely loved this!!
And here's the picture that inspired it all ♥ ♥ ♥
Superhero capes swishing in the wind, friends, games, love and more!
Former roommates and best friends, Clark and Bryce, are united after five long years to battle the forces and crowds at the local Comic Con. Oh—reunited in costume too! :D Batman and Superman! These guys were friends that longed for more back in the day. Will they get a second chance at love now? Tension and chemistry push and pull at Clark and Bryce creating fun banter and ooh-la-la sexiness. Throw in a Red Dwarf shout out of l ...more
P.S. This is free on Amazon right now.
I think I'm in love. Because this story? This story has everything I love. I'm a sucker for best friends to lovers; add in two sexy guys; one with tats, a second chance, and geeks?! I'm gone.
Bryce and Clark were best friends and college roommates for years, secretly pining for the other but never having the courage to say anything. Until one fateful night when they kiss and everything goes to pot. Clark would be leaving within a month, and starting a relationship wasn't in the car ...more
Thanks to the author for participating in the event. :)
I think if this story would've been YA and had the sexy stuff taken out, it might've been more effective. To me. These characters felt very young, and their actions and misunderstandings over the course of 5 years was a little melodramatic.
Some of the banter was quite cute, though, while other bits felt a little forced due to the random pop-ups of unrelated geek knowledge for any reason other than a geek knowled ...more
Off to read more by this author.
There's a lot to love in this story - The Nerd Army, muscley big shouldered guys in super-hero costumes, a great sense of friendship. Really wanted to like it but unfortunately I must be broken - apply caffiene and reboot now!
Alternative povs meant the story got drawn out more than need be, I got bored and gave up at about 60% no longer able to keep the pov characters straight in my head.
"I'm a sucker for clear consonants and low tones. I used to volunteer to do all the data entry on our group projects just so Bryce would have to read to me. Even long lists of numbers sounded sexy as hell coming from his mouth."
I just about died laughing when Clark said that. Gawd! There's just something about two alphanerds getting it on that pushes my right buttons. But two alphanerds in tights? I'm completely sold. Take my money! I'm a sucker for second chances and this is just one of tho...more
