Holy Crap! Let's get Down and Dirty, shall we?
This anthology by Max Vos is hot. There are no two ways about it. In fact, it's hot, raunchy, sexy, steamy and a little wicked. And sometimes, if you pay attention, it's also sweet, cute and tender.
I'm not going to review each story separately. I'll tell you all about my favorites, though:
Hawk 'n' Harley is one beautiful gem. Like I said, hot and dirty. But also very real, and sweet and so touching. I read it more than once, and still get all jiggly and happy inside while reading.
And in A Walk On The Beach, Max Vos takes us with him through the days of an established couple. Two men very much in love, who found each other, love each other, and still are each others everything. It was very touching, very heart-warming, and in a special way, hopeful. You have to experience it, because describing this feeling is almost impossible.
To sum it up: Read it! May Vos has a very unique writing style, that can differ greatly from story to story. But what all of his characters have in common? They are good and loveable just the way they are. Not matter what they look like, how they behave, what they like or what they fear - in the end, they are capable of love and worthy of it, because they are real, flaws and all. And sexy as fuck, I'll give you that. But that never hurt anyone, right?
