Happy Ending by LB Gregg - 4 Nymphs
Seth Weston is on the table, waiting for his massage. Seth’s muscles are tied in knots. When the door opened, it is not the expected therapist who comes in, but a gorgeous masseur named David Cooke. Under the administration of David’s strong hands, Seth’s muscles are relaxed and his libido is completely aroused. David has been attracted to Seth for months; however he knew Seth did not become aware of him until that day at the spa.

Overall, both stories are romantic, in addition to being enjoyable. Each plot is well written with believable characters and emotional excitement. There is moderate intimacy exhibited in both stories, along with some amusing moments.
