Rent Boy – 4.5 Nymphs

Dorian is attracted to Sebastian from the moment he sets eyes on him. The heartache from his last relationship still raw, he is surprised to find himself so willing when it comes to his new friend. He’s even more surprised when Sebastian tells him how he earns enough money to put himself through college. Dorian can’t help but fall for the guy when he sees just how hard his life really is though and soon sets out to get what has fast become the most important thing to him – Sebastian in his life for good. Wonderfully romantic with a European backdrop, this was an enjoyable story set at just the right length and pace with two cute, likable characters. The plot kept me reading, as I wanted to see if two people with very different lifestyles could make it work.

A River and a Boy Named Jeff – 5 Nymphs

Andy is travelling back to his roots to try and get some perspective on things. He’s got a lot of thinking to do after the way things with Flynn turned out. Andy decides the best thing to do is sit back and relax with his new buddy Jeff. Jeff seems to be on the same wavelength as Andy and they enjoy each other’s company but Jeff still seems to be holding something back. Andy hopes he can be the one to show Jeff how good it could be, if only he’ll let go and trust him. A great story that reminded me of first loves and long, lazy summers as Andy and Jeff start to explore their feelings. This will warm you up on a cold winter’s night.

Orphan Boy – 4 Nymphs

Joel is through with relationships after his last partner broke his heart. Now he’s content with having one night stands and recording each delicious detail in his journal. When he is burgled however, he’s surprised to see his most intimate thoughts have been stolen along with all his valuables. When a young guy named Nick starts to show an interest in Joel’s life, Joel starts to put two and two together and realize that maybe Nick’s not the only one who needs to change his ways. A well rounded story with two nice characters, who are trying to fix what is wrong with their lives and finding that the answers lie in each other.

Boys Who Love Men has three sweetly satisfying stories of young love that were very enjoyable to read. The language and imagery created idyllic worlds, where you are free to follow your every heart’s desires so long as you are strong enough to reach out for what you really want.
