About the Author

The moment Sandra Ross held her first romance novel when she was ten, she knew she was going to write romance. At thirty now, a prolific reader and a freelance writer, she's since then expanded her preferences from just romance to romance with a dash of now trending sub-genres—paranormal , fantasy, sci-fi even, and erotica. She loves challenging herself and would write on a dare. On a normal day, she would be found in her herb garden collecting spices for her kitchen or ingredients for her potions; in her huge eclectic Provencal kitchen with the big modern oven cooking pots and pans of food for her family of one husband and three kids (an ardent daughter and two boisterous sons) that'll probably last for weeks; in her library with floor-to-ceiling bookshelves and an e-reader in her hands as she reads the latest short story erotic hit; or scribbling pages upon pages of different erotic lifestyles, searching for the one that feels like it was inspired by just the right mix of passion, story line, and sex. Aside from these activities, the rest of the time she'd be found in front of her laptop typing the latest Sandra Ross concoction for her readers.

I am not sure what the total percentage of gay and lesbian people are in the United States. The conventional answer used to be ten percent, but I have always doubted the veracity of that statement. Truthfully, I have no answer, and I would submit that no one really knows. Besides, rhetorically speaking, does it really ultimately matter? Not to this reader---and that is why, when given the opportunity to review Sandra Ross's book "Gayrotica: A Sweet and Sensual Gay Love Story," I jumped at the opportunity to read about love, lust and desire between two men. I really wasn't quite sure what to expect. Since I am not gay, and since I like to consider myself a reasonably open-minded individual, I suppose I also wanted to review Ross's book so that I could confront any latent misgivings and hidden prejudices I may have been harboring towards homosexuality of which I wasn't aware. I needn't have worried. As usual, Ross presented her protagonists in a positive, cheerful light, and it was the opening sentence in the first chapter ("I knew I was gay ever since high school, when I caught myself feeling attracted to the guys who changed in the locker room next to me before gym.") that demonstrated a matter-of-fact self-assessment by the protagonist, with no self-hate or agony over being gay even necessary. As with most romance/erotica fiction, self-confidence is always a desirable tangible in any character regardless of setting, and this was no different. Ross allows for each character to develop at a steady pace, and also demonstrates a remarkable knack for letting human frailties and foibles to present themselves. I found I liked the narrator right away. The narrator's common sense and desire to live as free and as open a lifestyle that he could afford within the urban sprawl that is Los Angeles allows him to find a place within walking distance of rapid-transit, where he is able to live and to eventually secure a job working a front desk in a 24-hour gym. Our speaker provides a prologue to the setting by explaining, in systematic detail, how he was planning to live his life as "a proud and out gay man" (ch. 1). First and foremost was his resolute determination to live his life on his own terms and "not the way society thought I should" (1). To this reader, such a determinist attitude is key to long-term happiness and quality of life, and this adds a nice positive perspective to the narrator's collective development as a gay man. I particularly admired how he applied to colleges in the Los Angeles area, since L.A., like most large U.S. cities, tends to support a well-established, progressive gay community. Since our narrator came to terms with his homosexuality only a few years ago, being able to make clear, rational, positive choices that will provide him with safety, security and support is paramount---and crucial to living his life to the best that his talents can offer. Ross's positive portrayal of how he lives his life underscores an acceptance of people for who they are, regardless of sexual orientation. Our narrator eventually meets and is attracted to one of the gym's clients, and Ross develops the plot at a well-written pace that provides the reader with the requisite emotional and sexual intimacy that is characteristic of her novels. Being gay is simply one facet of a person and is in no way the be-all, end-all of how they choose to live their lives. While certain ho

Gay abandon The main character in this book is a sweet and innocent character that is comfortable with his sexuality and has known he has been gay since high school and he is very comfortable with his lifestyle.  However, this doesn’t necessarily make it easy for him to meet people as it isn’t always known if people are gay or not.  This is the situation he finds himself struggling with when he falls head-over-heels for one of the trainers that works at the gym.   This secret crush develops more and more in intensity, particularly as he gets to see Sam naked in the change rooms.  He is convinced, however, that Sam would never feel the same way about him and he harbors this secret crush to himself.  He is also convinced that Sam is definitely not gay so this makes his crush extremely complicated. This is a very sweet love story that is also extremely erotic and raunchy but it still maintains a very innocent sentiment – a perfect combination if you ask me.  The style is very easy to read and Sandra Ross always manages to capture the intimacy and depth of the situation and it really makes you feel involved in the actual situation.  It also represents a different angle of relationships and the difference between heterosexual and homosexual relationships – the struggles but also the similarities and the good.  I did find that I completely whizzed through this story, it definitely could have been a bit longer as I really enjoyed the characters.

Have you ever been completely head over heels in love with someone but you couldn’t say anything? Well this guy has. And it's more difficult than you would think. Because he's a man, who's fallen in love with another man, that's he's certain has no interest in him. Of course when you think about telling someone you really care about them it can be difficult. Starting out a new relationship always is after all and leaving yourself open to their rejection is awful. But how can you tell someone that you're gay and you're attracted to them when you don't think they are? Well that's what happens in this book. The main character is gay. He has been since he can remember and he's not ashamed of the fact. It's just who he is. But then he starts working in a gym with Sam. And Sam is the ideal man. He's the gorgeous, viral man that every woman and likely every gay man dreams of. And our character is completely head over heels for him. But just as certain as he is that he is gay, he's just as certain that Sam is not. So what's a guy to do? I really liked that this book gave such a normal view of being gay. So many people want to make it seem like people that are gay are ashamed of it or try to hide it. But they're not. Or at least most of them are not. Most of them just want to live their lives like anyone else and Sandra brought that out really well in this book. The two guys just want to be free to care about and possibly love each other. So if you like happily ever after stories, even if you're not sure about the 'gay' part, you'll like this story. Being gay doesn't matter after all, what matters is being true to yourself and finding someone to love. The two men have known each other for a while since they've worked together. However Sam doesn't seem to know that the main character is actually gay. At least not until he gets caught staring in the locker room. And then the truth all comes out. That he's into Sam, and Sam is into him as well. So what's going to happen to them? Well there's going to be some romance and a lot of sex of course but if you want to know more than that you're going to have to read the book. For my more open-minded friends this is something I would recommend. It has a good storyline that seems like it could really happen. And of course the characters are completely gorgeous. You'll definitely love their romance and their relationship.

I am a frequent reader of Erotica but I have never read Gayrotica before. That said I have always enjoyed “slash” fan fiction and I am of the opinion that love is love no matter what the genders involved in the love are. So when I found Sandra Ross’s Gayrotica: A Sweet and Sensual Gay Love Story I was really excited to read it! Sandra Ross once again delivers not only a hot and steamy story that has sensual erotic scenes in it but a story that is laced with emotions. Sam is someone that can be related to on more than just a level of him being a gay man. There are many situations and relationships no matter the gender or race when one person feels that cannot tell the other how they feel right away. It is a situation that grips close to home for so many and makes you feel emotionally connected to the character. You wonder will they make this work? Well it is a romance story so one assumes they will but as your reading Sandra’s style of storytelling makes you forget your reading a romance and so you forget what the outcome should be. If you have an open mind and you think that love is love no matter what this is a fantastic book for you. It is a good read for those who are gay but it really is a good read for anyone because it offers a deeper love story than just the sex.

Honestly, this is the first gay erotic book that I have ever read and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It led me to think though, just how many men out there are hiding from their true feelings. I just had to write a review for this book because I think it’s something that people should read and think about. The book reads just like any other romance. As you follow the characters through the journey of love, you can’t help but think of the story as a good one. The feelings that pass between these two men make you utterly satisfied. I never knew that Sandra Ross could write gay erotica. I had been so used to her writing erotica that included heterosexual characters so this book was a nice change from that. As usual, her characters were fluid and compound. I started to feel like I could relate to the characters, even though they are men and I am a woman. The feelings that the characters share in the story are vividly described, you may feel the same feelings overtaking you. In that regard, Sandra Ross has really done well in bringing these men alive. Gayrotica by Sandra Ross is a book that may mainly appeal to men, but as a side note, because of the thickness of the romance in this book, female readers will love it as well. The erotica is steamy and to the point. I’m sure you will like having this with a cup of coffee on a cold night.
