Liquid Heat by Ashley Ladd
Liquid Heat is a funny romp. When Joshua's car has a frontal encounter with a deer, he is marooned in deep Georgia. The only one that can help him is Paul, a blogger by day and mechanic by hobby who lives in a nudist colony. And the colony is also the only place where Joshua can stay till the car is ready.
With great surprise, Joshua is not drawn by the great display of naked women he sees around and instead his interest is hold captive by Paul's naked body. Joshua has never been with a man before and he maybe hadn't realized that the discomfort he felt lately, and his fear to commit with his girlfriend, maybe could have another reason. With the help of Paul, who is more than willing to let experiment Joshua, the man will have the chance to walk on the dark side and look if he is more at ease there.
The story is short, less than 50 pages, but the twist of the nudist colony make it really funny. It's love at first sight between Joshua and Paul (and they were dressed when happened, so no, it wasn't only a sexual thing), but living in a community is not so simple as it seems, and Joshua needs to make big changes in his life. On the other hand, Paul is not willing to lose the paradise he found in the community, and I can understand him, even if, really, I would haven't the gut to walk naked among so many people.
One thing I found remarkably is that the author is pretty explicit, sex is very graphic, and all in all women don't make a so good impression in the book... strange since the author is a woman...
Summer Bliss by J.P. Bowie
During a lazy summer afternoon Phil meets Greg. Like in The Dalmatian Phil's dog hooks up Greg's ones and the respective owners like each other like the dogs do. From a friendly chatting to a lovely dinner, the couple ends the day after at the beach, smearing lotion on each other and kissing and... well you can imagine. But Phil was never been a type for commitment and this sudden desire for Greg is disconcerting; Phil is not sure of anything in this moment and his uncertainity could risk him the real love of his life. I like the easiness of how Phil and Greg meet and fall in love: Summer is always a season when all things seem more easy and joyous, and it's strange, but a love born in summer has more trouble to survive since the lovers always don't trust their right judgment to function. Like Phil: he is a good guy, with a good work and a big heart. He is a man who has no problem to demonstrate that he can cry and he is also very sexy. Still he is the one who put in question all they have. Greg instead is more ready to face great changes in his life to give an opportunity to their love: he only asks to Phil to be clear with his feelings. The story is not to short, 60 pages, and it's sweet and romantic. Easy to read and smooth, with lot of sex and a big dose of cuddling, features two likeable characters, not too complicated... the classical summer love story....Continua
