Coffee and Chaos by Jessica Chase
I enjoyed Coffee and Chaos. It was a slow burn, but the characters came across really well. I'd love to see them go on to solve some other crimes in a novella-length piece where we can further explore their relationship. 3*

Can't Stand the Heat by Keelan Ellis
Can't Stand the Heat is a delightful story. I really enjoy the interplay between the two men as they move from rivalry to romance. 4*

Cherry Bomb by L.J. Hamlin
Cherry Bomb is a nice "first meeting" tale. I liked both the characters, but I would have welcomed some further development of their relationship. Perhaps there's a sequel here.... 3*
Kangaroos Next 200km by Asta Idonea
This is my story, so obviously I won't be reviewing this one :)

Rough Love by Dale Cameron Lowry
Rough Love concentrates on misunderstandings between partners, and I loved how Dale presented the characters and their dilemmas. An enjoyable short tale. 4*
The Date by Cassandra McMurphy
I really enjoyed The Date. It's a sort of gay-for-you tale, but it worked well. The development of the romance felt natural and I thought the ending was just right. 4*
Trickster69 by Charles Payseur
Trickster69 was a fun read that put a smile on my face. However, I would have liked to have seen it a little more closely linked to the myths. 3*
Moonlight Masquerade by DM Roberto
I found Moonlight Masquerade a fun short read; however, I did wonder at Marc's motivations at times, when his actions seemed contradictory. Nevertheless, it's a pleasing little romance to while away a few minutes. 3*
Had Me at Cheese Fries by Lynn Townsend
Had Me at Cheese Fries is a fun little tale. The characters came across well and engaged my interest from the start. A nicely structure short story. 4*
Tomatoes and Mangoes by Monica Wang
Tomatoes and Mangoes is a sweet little story of shyness to romance. I liked the two girls and was wishing them together from the start. A delightful short read. 3.5*
