Benjamin Ballard always assumed he was straight - in every way possible. They invented the term 'vanilla' to describe him. But if Ben's so straight, why can't he get his inscrutable coffee-shop co-worker Xander Romano out of his head? And how come Xander's rough-housing on the basketball court gets Ben so flustered?

I loved the story. However, the writing style is choppy and got in my way of enjoying the book. Otherwise it would have been 4 stars.

What's this, I thought to myself, another one of those straight to gay novella's with a bit of kink thrown in, yeah, I fancy distracting myself with that.


Three days later and I feel a bit dazed having just read all 8 of them in a row, which is no mean feat as the first one may be short(ish) but they get longer and better and more invovled and they have actual characters in them not just cardboard cut outs.

So if you like m/m and kink then I would definitely recommend that you read this whole

I almost put this book down after reading the first page but I persevered; I was curious to see if the stilted, distant writing style continued throughout the book. The answer is that it does continue through most of the book with a few scattered bits where the writing style was a little more engaging.

I really am not trying to be mean but I truely thought that the first couple of pages was an extended blurb for the book.
I have never read a book written in a style like this. I skimmed through

Bound to Him, Rough Love book one by Leighton Greene. Short hot m/m story. This story is about two friends. One who knows exactly who he is and the other trying to figure it out. Great characters and a great storyline!

Well Done

I really liked reading this story. I liked the aspect of having the courage to question, and having a friend to ask, to be honest, and all that it entails. A well written story about learning about oneself.
