“Best Gay Romance 2014” is another excellent anthology from editors Timothy J. Lambert and R.D. Cochrane.  Like “Fool for Love” and “Foolish Hearts,” “Best Gay Romance 2014” contains well-crafted, character-driven stories that depict a diverse range of romantic experiences, from awkward yet hopeful first meetings to those pivotal moments when love grows a bit stronger in a life-long partnership.  In step with the times, the collection explores the complexities of love between men amid a larger culture that is rapidly transforming its views of gay relationships.  Standout stories were Eric Gober’s “Strange Propositions,” where an unusual proposal leads to budding romance at a demonstration against California’s Prop 8, Lewis DeSimone’s “Quality Time,” where a man’s five-year-old daughter sees through her dad’s ruse to portray his partner as merely a roommate, Tony Calvert’s “Dandelions,” where a meddling mother plays matchmaker when her son moves back to his small hometown in Mississippi, and David Puterbaugh’s “Save the Last Dance for Me,” where a dance on a transatlantic cruise becomes transformative for two gay couples and a young gay onlooker.  Highly recommended for fans of romance and short stories.
