Bathhouse, the first book in the Bathhouse series by: Kyan Christopher is a very well written book. I must say that the book was very interesting. I’ve never read a book where each chapter took turns with the character’s POV. One chapter is Zach talking and the next chapter would be Ryan. You can feel the love between both men and how much they care for one another. Zach is always willing to listen to Ryan’s concerns.

Zach takes Ryan to a Bathhouse to have a little fun in their relationship and Z

First, I want to say that as fan fic goes, I'm thoroughly impressed! This was nothing shy of hot, Hot, HOT! And while it's just a small book, it packs a whole lot of sexy times heat! It's as if downright dirty fun, lushness, and just the right amount of sizzle were mixed together into a big ball of pure lusty magnificence!

At first I was a bit nervous as I haven't yet had a chance to read the story the characters originated from. But I didn't let it stop me as I dove into the ferociousl

Oh, I love these characters. This is a continuation of the story for Zach and Ryan from the More than Friends trilogy by Aria Grace. Different author, same characters.

If you've not read the previous books in this series, while you don't exactly have to to read this story, it will help. It's important that you know how rocky these 2 started their relationship, and what a very big deal it is that they are going to this bathhouse. This story is kind of short, but packs a punch. There is a lot going

I really like Ryan and Zach from the More Than Friends series so when I came across this little story I snatched it right up.
It's a very quick read, spanning one evening they spend at a bathhouse in NO. There wasn't too much to the story, other than the sexual escapades they engage in while they were there. I have to admit, I love it when it's just the 2 of them, I don't like when others are involved. I know Zach did this for Ryan, who is still wanting to explore his sexuality, but I just rememb

The characters are from a different world's book. I haven't read those books but definitely liked the two main characters here. Their trust for each other is something you can see came from many years together. It's a strong relationship.

All the sex scenes in this were hot,well-written, and pretty realistic. I loved it. Very tempted to get the next story in this series after reading the first chapter at the end of this story. Already seems like the characters will be very layered and I've alrea

Blimey this was a super hot short story!
Unsure what to expect I still dived in following a recommendation from a friend ( Thankyou Tracy) and bloody hell fire!
It packed a very quick sharp punch...diving straight in to the nitty gritty so to speak...characters that you can connect with and really very good writing skills.
I'm about to dive into the next now and this time I have my fan at the ready!
Now the only question that remains is where's the nearest Bathhouse so I can sneak in and watch!

This story was so hot! As someone who visits Gay Bathhouses themselves, this was a great depiction of the experience of going to one. If you're looking for plot or character development, this story isn't for you. If your looking for a hot sexy story to get turned on, this is the perfect book.

This was a decent read about a couple who are spicing up their sex lives. It's a short story and a fun quick read. There wasn't much to it, except a few minor sex scenes. Although, I have to say I did enjoy it.

I found the writing a little confusing at times but that didn't distract me from what is a very hot, sweet read.

This was brilliant. I love how you carried on Aria's story for Ryan and Zach, giving them the opportunity to explore consensually.
KYAN CHRISTOPHER you are a credit to fan fiction. Well Done

Steamy hawt book about a wonderful couple, sharing their fantasies together. Great short story from a new author to me.

Since I picked up book three, Legal Briefs, to review, figured I'd hop-to and read my copy of fanfic book one. I'm a fan of Aria Grace, but find her books hit or miss. Some are better than others, though all aren't a waste of time, some just spend it without giving me a whole lot in return.

Unfortunately, Bathhouse fell into that category. This story follows book two of Ms. Grace's series and contains information that alludes to that book. Readers unknown to the series might become slightly lost

**I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

This was a great short story based off Aria Grace's Zach and Ryan! I love how we get to revisit these two and go on an erotic romp in New Orleans. I'm definitely looking forward to this series and where Kyan Christopher will take us next.

This is a PWP story featuring Aria Grace's characters Ryan & Zach from the More Than Friends universe. They visit a bathhouse in New Orleans & expand their sexual repertoire.

Just ok

This was an ok read. I would have liked a little more plot along with the sex. As for the character development I felt like I was coming into this book from the middle not from book one of the series.

Aria Grace fan fiction. Interesting.

Not for me

When I think of a romance story - not just sex but more - I think purely in terms of monogamy. Not into open relationships and find that rules around them are often broken. Not saying that's the future for these guys because there's no way to know. Nothing intrinsically wrong with the story but it's not for me.
Hot short read. Found it hard to get into

It's a fun quick read but unfortunately this novella suffers a bit due to the writing style. It reads like the author is new to writing (which is fine) and a deep line edit would have helped the book a lot.
