“Indulge Me” by Kaenar Langford
When Keane Daniels gets an unsigned
note asking him to come to a local gay spa for a sexy
rendezvous, he’s not sure whether or not to go. He’s been
lusting after his boss, the sexy Rayche Marquette, for
months and isn’t sure if he’s ready to move on. When he
finally decides to go, will the surprise he gets make him
happy, or angry?
“Indulge Me” is a very hot story with a
lot of very spicy sex. Both Keane and Rayche are likeable
characters, although not terribly developed. The only
problem I had with this one was how very quickly everything
moved, but if you can suspend disbelief “Indulge Me” is an
“Dalton’s Awakening” by Carol Lynne
Lonely in the wake of a nasty divorce,
Dalton Montgomery is more than willing to chat with the
friendly bartender he meets at an Italian restaurant. After
all the horrible things his ex-wife said about him, all of
Dalton’s friends have deserted him. Then he starts to feel
strange things for the bartender, Sal, and wonders if his
wife might have been right about him…
“Dalton’s Awakening” is a sweet story.
I liked conflicted Dalton and (mostly) patient Sal. The
conflict is pretty realistic. There are a few overwrought
parts, but they were still quite entertaining, and I enjoyed
“Dalton’s Awakening” a lot.
“Lunches in Laguna” by JP Bowie
Scott Stevenson loves taking lunch
breaks in Laguna, looking at beautiful men and enjoying the
weather. One day he meets sexy art gallery employee Michael
Taylor, and they make a lunch date. Soon they’ve got a new
routine, but is it just a temporary thing?
“Lunches in Laguna” is a spicy story
with lots of conflict, but it didn’t resonate as much with
me emotionally. Scott and Michael were both interesting
enough characters, what I knew of them, and there are some
villains and interesting secondary characters. I guess my
issue was that the villains were a little too bad,
and Scott and Michael got together too quickly for me to
believe they were really in love when they said they were.
“Raven” by Dakota Rebel
Vampires Patrick and Kennedy run Raven,
a nightclub, in order to feed on the sexual energy of its
patrons. Lately, Patrick has been getting tired of
Kennedy’s flitting about, sleeping with everything that
moves. Will their long friendship end, or evolve into more?
There are some super hot scenes in
“Raven.” Fans of vampires and erotica will probably love
the story. I wasn’t keen on the ambiguous (at least I
thought so) way the relationship was left at the end, or the
addition of a third character.
“Lust in the Afternoon” by Cian Fey
Ted Wayne, the resident computer geek
at the Men for Men e-zine, is horrified when he
learns that his boss needs him to do a little something
extra. Due to a horrible snowstorm, he’s supposed to fill
in for the actor who was going to jerk off on camera for one
of the e-zine’s most popular features. Will having his
crush, art director Gray Jeffries, working the camera ease
his nerves, or make things worse?
“Lust in the Afternoon” is a scorching
story. There’s a lot of sex, and some voyeurism—a kink I’m
quite fond of in stories. Shy, nervous Ted was easy to
sympathize with. Unfortunately, the characters started
throwing the l-word around after a way too short period of
time. That and a strange paranormal twist at the end made
“Lust in the Afternoon” less enjoyable at the end than it
started out being.
“Lunch is Served” by Jude Mason
Philip needs a job, so he interviews
for a position at the Gate Club, an exclusive gay sex club.
He’s immediately attracted to the owner, Mark Freeman, but
is determined to hide his attraction. Could his boss ever
become Sir instead of sir?
If you’re into leather and BDSM, “Lunch
is Served” is the story for you. There’s a lot of sexual
tension and heat in the story. Watching Philip try to
understand and fit into the new world he’s joined is
interesting. While “Lunch is Served” wasn’t my favorite
story in the anthology, it is a glimpse into the Dom/sub
Naughty Nooners is an anthology chock-full of
quick, hot reads that just might be a good way to while away
some extra time during a lunch break. Don’t expect realism,
but if you can suspend disbelief and not question things too
much, Naughty Nooners is a fun anthology.
