Cameron has it all. He’s rich, lives in Manhattan, and even has a cross-dressing butler. But then he meets Nate, an Australian who’s bitter about love. Cameron is determined to turn this realist into a dreamer by sharing his world of classy restaurants, Broadway shows and fabulous parties. And while Nate’s friends see the makings of a fantasy romance, it’s Nate who has to learn that in order to open his heart, he has to face a painful secret.

Nate and the New Yorker is a short novel, it is why I am not going to talk about the story itself, except the fact, that the plot provides a good basis for a typical MM Romance with paranormal elements, that COULD deliver totally different kind of books depending on the interpretation of the starting material.
The story COULD have been longer – with a bit more erotica in it – or it could have been more serious, though I personally consider exactly the witty writing style as a winner for this short novel.

So let talk about what was good and what not so good here for me.

What I liked:

    I enjoyed Kevin Klehr’s easygoing writing style and his humour.

    This novel has a perfect length for my taste.

    All characters are a bit over eccentric. In other kind of story it COULD be annoying, but here it matches with a story harmonically, and gives it something special.

    I loved the first part of the book, but maybe because of my reading preferences.

What could be better:

    Sex scenes! Yes, I understand that SEX wasn’t supposed to be the main focus of the story, but after such promising remarks like

    “He was ready for worship. With one masterful stroke, I could unzip his manhood and give it breathing space.”

    or

    “You have techniques that could make a gigolo blush.”

    not to give us, readers, a single SEX scene, was MEAN!

Maybe it is the reason WHY I completely missed the sexual tension between MCs. (see point above)

The second part of the book wasn’t as good as the beginning, it is why I gave it only three stars. But as I said, it could be my personal reading preferences.

All in all, it was a nice pleasant quick read.

Author

A passionate reader from Germany. I learned to read at the age of 4 and never stopped since then, though my books from that time were very different from what they are now. English is my third language, and I’m sorry for all grammar mistakes I made in my reviews. But I assure you, that my reading English is much better than my writing English. I’m a seeker for the books that differ from mainstream, that provoke the reader or have very often very opposite ratings.
