I bought this because it said Best Gay Romance, not erotica. However most of the stories are a lot to the erotic side. There were only a couple i truly disliked though and a couple that were so romantic and great it made the whole book worth it! The second story and one to the end to be exact. I hope the author keeps in mind it is ROMANCE not erotica next year.
The 2012 version just lost me some good stories .
Posted on Romancing the Book's blog Reviewed by Sabrina Review Copy Provided by the Publisher I loved this anthology. I think that the collection of stories that were put together were amazing. They were all slightly different in someway but all related to each other in another. There were bitter sweet moments and there was happily ever after stories. Anything that you can possible look for in gay romance was displayed in this collection. I can not even pick a favorite as each one resonates with me on some level. The editing was well done and most stories were just long enough to understand the story but still short enough to read at a red light. Some were a little long for my taste, but that is a very personal note. Anyone looking for a Chicken Soup type book about gay men will enjoy this book. They may not be true stories, but the type of stories are of the same mind set. I can’t stress how much I loved this anthology. I will be looking for past publications and keep an eye out for future ones.
