    I wish it had been longer

    I'm not a fan of short stories but I am a fan of the Authors work so I decided to give Language Lessons a go.

    As short stories go, it was ok.

    Were Introduced to Joey, a confident 17 year old who is only interested in one thing, Sex, well ok, 2 things, Sex and his appearance, but the latter is only a device to help him obtain the former. He hooks up with an old crush and learns of said crush's love for another. Joey architects a meet with the two of them at a restaurant and whilst there, meets Phillip, a cute waiter who seems impervious to Joeys charms. Joey becomes obsessed with having what he can't have and sets out on mission to make Phillip his, and on this mission discovers that there is more to life than sex and ultimately discovers love to be far more rewarding.

    My problem with short stories is, it's like going out for a meal and only having a dessert. They are nice enough, with a sweet ending, but ultimately unfulfilling and you leave feeling hungry for something else.

    Worth a read though if time is limited and you want to pass a quick half hour.

    My first gay romance read.

    I just purchased this book and finished reading already since it is a short story. I had been looking to read a gay romance novel (not a gay porn) after reading this book I plan on reading two other books by the author that are full novels.
    The story was realistic and easy to follow. Somewhere in the world I'm sure this a tennage boys' real life experience.

    I fell for each of the characters, which was surprising because I am such a hater. Good, fun, sexy little story.

    I don't like short stories, yet I thought this was great. It's perfect to curl up on the couch and read in an afternoon. Short, yet very sweet.

    Good

    The novel was somewhat entertaining and heart-stirring, but this short story isn't very adventurous and is somewhat plain, regardless, I enjoyed reading it.

    The cure for cynical hearts

    I thought it would be another mindless exercise in erotic escapism with flat characters and unnecessary drama. I was wrong. I am rather jaded and looked down on romance as a pleasant but unwieldy dream; yet I found I had been much like Joey and maybe that wasn't a good or enlightened thing anymore. Many opinions I once held became unhinged, much to my very surprised delight.

    Cute

    If you're looking for a cute story with a happy ending, you're in the right place. It also has just enough sex to keep someone with the atention span of a moth (me) interested. Plus, it's free.

    Short and fun

    It was a perfect summer read: No complexity, well-crafted, if simple, characters, a light storyline, and a cute ending. Definitely recommended.

    Good book. I thought the characters and the relationships weren't believable. I thought the ending was good though.
