Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"I can’t think of a better way to spend an overly hot weekend than with these strong manly lead characters… Though the shy, quiet guys will be sure to grab you by your heartstrings and never let you go! The only reason I mentioned this is because many of these boys don’t stick out for the things they say but for the actions that take. I hope you thoroughly enjoy this collection of anthologies as much as I did."
—Night Owl Reviews

"Best Gay Erotica 2012 is an anthology of sensuously erotic tales by a diverse assortment of authors, all with one theme in common: strenuous, passionate, man-on-man physical love. The strong-language sexual adventures come fast and charged with graphic detail, in this collection especially intended to promote pleasure in the privacy of one’s home (perhaps with the aid of safe and skin-friendly lubricant). Best Gay Erotica 2012 lives up to its title as a compendium of only the finest in lurid, vivid and sexually explicit tales of gay lust."
—Midwest Book Review

"Every story in this anthology is well written and absolutely, exquisitely luscious. There is not one story that fails to induce goose-bumps on your skin and plenty of lubrication in your underwear. These stories, all of them, require that you read them either in good company or with just one hand and your personal lubricant of choice nearby - or both!"
—Arketipo 187

"Each entry is extremely well-written, and whether the reader is taken in by a story’s plot, characters or explicit sex (and there is plenty!), the anthology is a worthy, enjoyable read..... Best Gay Erotica 2012 is an impressive collection of stories that will amuse, delight and—above all—excite readers in a variety of genres."
—Edge

"Gathering the hottest, freshest, and most literary fiction for the year, Best Gay Erotica 2012 captures the tenderness and raw energy of man-on-man desire. ...These provocative and potent short stories will grab your attention and your erotic imagination."
—Erotic Readers and Writers Association
