I started this anthology primarily for J.L. Merrow's story.As Beauty Does, J.L. Merrow -- 4 stars.
I always think of J.L. Merrow in terms of her humor, but this story is more of a serious contemporary, though it does have some of her trademark witty lines. In this story a rent boy discovers that his favorite regular is his new teacher at uni. I enjoyed the transition these two characters made as they figured out there could be more between them.Stripped Bare, S. Balise -- 4 stars.
I enjoy stories with a disabled character and this one was especially nice. A blind man hires a stripper for his sister's hen party and the stripper becomes curious about the man on the phone. Fun And Games, Lenore Black -- 3 stars.
A geeky game designer gets a rent boy as a gift from his friends for his birthday and the guy keeps coming back. Sweet though a little predictable.The Four Seasons, Diana Copland -- 3.5 stars.
A young law student sees a gorgeous male hooker in an upscale hotel and falls for him, but he doesn't have the money to pay for a night. Later, he sees the hooker again, now brought low and on the streets. The story is arranged in 4 chapters or time jumps, each named for a season of the year. This was a particularly nice little romance with a cinderfella ending.
I completed the anthology and enjoyed it. The other stories were decent enough reads as part of the collection. Recommended.
