Review

This was a quick read for me and I was in the mood for a feel good story and this one was just right...
When I started reading SAVING TREVOR I thought, these are guys who have either been through the trenches or are as unrealistic as the wording used to describe them were... and to be honest it was a little of both.

Guess what - it did it for me... I love them as a couple and As individuals.

Nick and Eric are a stable couple living as they pleased and happy with the status quo, when they save a fourteen year old boy from a gang of "holy thugs" they take on more than they realise they were ready for.
But like true men who knew that sometimes it only takes one to cause harm and also do good, they take on board Trevor (the young lad) and his issues..

I have to admit a bit of it was predictable and sweet, really sweet - there was even a few teary moments - that I thought WOW...

A whole bag load of people rotate through this short read and all made a visible impact on not only the story line but on the main protags themselves... that I thought also was a nice touch...
This wont appeal to everyone - especially if you are looking for a meaty plot. This was quite sugary in the flow of the language and in some ways self complimentary in it's description - but for me it was a winner.
If you are between books - try it, I'll be keeping an eye out for this author I like the voice that presented SAVING TREVOR.

Title – Nice: Joys of the Season, An On Fire Christmas

Publisher – Torquere Press

Main Characters – Robert & Sam

Robert and Sam are preparing for Christmas, each in his own way, both looking forward to Christmas morning. All Robert has to do to get there is survive Sam, Sam's impromptu Christmas party for the students in his class, and the fact that the gift carefully ordered for Sam still hasn't shown up. Sam is full of irrepressible Christmas cheer and an insatiable appetite for his favorite fireman, thrilled to be celebrating Christmas with his husband. However, Robert still finds ways to surprise and excite Sam, reminding him that he has the best gift anyone could get, every single day

Review

I finally caught up on this one - If you haven't read ON FIRE and ON FIRE 2 don't even try to make sense of my thoughts here...
Sam and Robert are spending Christmas with Sam's dad and things are going better than Sam would have imagine in terms of 'The in-Laws' liking the spouse...
Robert and Sam's dad gets on like a house on fire and Sam is as usual horny and not liking the time Robert is not spending with him getting his jollies off... and of course what Sam wants Sam gets and he has no regret about how he goes about getting it...
Zachary revisits the ON FIRE gang and gives us Sam at his usual best, attitude and horny with it. Robert is just being Robert and I love him.
With a decent smut scene and a rather comical moment this short read is a sweet filler and makes a nice follow up for fans of this series...
