This collection of five erotic gay stories includes varied themes with explicit sexual encounters.

All The Boys by Sommer Marsden: You're beautiful. I'd like to take your picture... should be the beginning of a bad joke. But it's not. And when Gil decides to let go and trust Simon to take his picture it's tougher than he thought. Faced with the camera's unblinking eye, there's a whole lot of anger and surprisingly some healing. Simon seems to think he truly is beautiful - scars and all.

Garden Variety by Michael Bracken: Doug Fowler tends lawns for rich people and hasn't come out of the tool shed. He thinks the stories his fellow gardeners tell about being seduced by clients are so much compost until the boy toy of one of his rich clients comes on to him. Doug can't resist the offer and soon finds himself in a torrid relationship that forces him to choose between love and money.

Getting Off Easy by Landon Dixon: Trevor has had a thing for older men, ever since he and his gym teacher turned a one-on-one wrestling session into a hotter, sweatier session in the high school shower room. So, when 'Big' Bill Denton pulls him over driving the beater he's just bought for his 18th birthday, and he sees the 50-year-old cop bulging out that crisp blue uniform right in front of him, he just can't control himself. This traffic stop is going to be a whole more than routine, for both men.

Satan's Sauna by Thom Gautier: What happens if you run into your secret gym crush on the day of a big review at work? Do you stammer like a nervous 16-year-old on his first date? Or maybe you draw words of wisdom from the handsome devil? If you're truly lucky, maybe your strapping satanic gym crush take... Download and start listening now!

    " At first, I was drawn in by this unusual coming-of-age story, with its mixed-up teen narrator who has a truly wacky family and odd insights on life. Then, it felt a bit like a car wreck -- really bad stuff happening but you couldn't look away. And by the end, it just seemed trite: I'd figured out the BIG secret a while before, the characters were ALL losers, and you felt let down and grossed out at the same time. "

    " I enjoyed this, mostly, and I think Jonathan Evison shows great promise, but my problem is that I just didn't really care about Lulu, and she is what this novel alleges to be "all about." She's exactly the type of beautiful-haunted-damaged woman that makes me want to throw a book across a room. There is, naturally, a Big Secret involved here which supposedly is the cause of Lulu's dramatic angst, but, given the nature of the Big Secret, one has to wonder why no one thought to give a heads-up to our narrator Will. It would've saved everyone so much time and grief. I just couldn't buy it, nor could I really understand Will and Troy's obsession with Lulu; I personally don't like self-involved trauma queens and would've quit her a long time ago. Lulu aside, the story is well-written, funny, and interesting, if sometimes meandering and uneven. I'll look forward to Evison's next offering. "

    " Lulu has all the makings of a good book. It's a complexly woven and somewhat original love-and-loss tale with emotion-inducing characters told by a seemingly warm and friendly narrator named Will. Unfortunately, as things progress, the author amasses more and more of the makings of a bad book. Awkward turns of phrase, cliched plot-turns, and even bouts of just plain boring filler. Things are more or less OK until Part Two (of two), when Lulu sort of disappears and leaves Will to fend for himself as the book's protagonist. This is of course a symbolic move by the author to show that Will is weak and unable to define himself without Lulu, but what we soon learn is that Will is actually an asshole, with very few redeeming qualities, which is bad news for a narrator/protagonist. He's immature and self-serving and completely wayward, and when Evison spends pages and pages describing a pick-up basketball game featuring Will and his brothers against three black kids (a chapter Evison calls "Brothers Against Brothers" -- am I wrong in interpreting this as vaguely racist?) or his landlord's starting a hot dog stand you start to wonder why you're still reading. Also awkward is the decision to describe Will as a nascent philosopher, since this doesn't REALLY go anywhere aside from a few impotent quips about the nature of truth and the meaning of life. How Evison does it, however, is even weirder, and pretty lazy -- instead of describing Will in school, he simply tosses in Will's purported papers on Descartes and the like. There's some really cringe-inducing stuff here, including the professor's comments, which come at the end of the paper, and, just in general, the obviously cringe-inducing stuff you'd expect to find in a junior college student's page-long paper on Descartes. But Will is supposed to be smart -- everyone's always telling him how clever and how quick he is, so something doesn't really add up. You don't feel sorry for him, because he's a selfish, wayward, and immature asshole, and you don't care about his job at the hot dog stand or his RX-7 or, really, anything. Also, Evison for some reason feels the need to constantly name drop restaurants, street corners, concert venues, and bars in both Seattle and Los Angeles. I'm very familiar with both cities, and this didn't add anything for me -- not authenticity, not realism. Just distraction, like a hot girl with a facial tic. Again, there's a lot of pathos here, and the book isn't a complete waste. It's got a lot going for it, and I did enjoy reading it. With a more exacting or demanding editor at perhaps a larger publishing house, this may have been a better novel. Evison has a really big heart for his characters, and you can tell he put himself into Lulu. Aside from the philosophy papers, it's rarely lazy or underdeveloped. It's just got that feel of the first several chapters having been workshopped quite a bit and the latter parts being left to simply waver and flop about in the wind. Too many times I was torn away from the otherwise intriguing narrative by poor diction or overt and miserably failed cleverness. Worth a read on the beach in the summer, perhaps. If only for the cover, which I think is really stunning, if a bit of a Nabokov cop. Especially when considering the title. Will definitely check out Evison's next novel. "

    " I was completely drawn in at the beginning, but the ending seemed sort of obvious. "
