Lunchtime Nibbles
Volume One

Two short, fiery stories with enough spice to satisfy the biggest carnal appetites.

* * * * *

Cheese and Pickle

Harvey and Greg work in the same office. Of course Harvey noticed Greg – who wouldn’t notice the beardie hottie with muscles aplenty to silence even the noisiest team meeting? Then a home visit turns into a car-rocking tryst of spectacular proportions, and suddenly Tuesday lunchtimes become the highlight of Harvey’s week.

But will a quickie with the recalcitrant Greg be enough, or will something more meaningful develop?

The Detonator

Featuring Tork and Adam from The Tork and Adam series

Adam is a sex god. At least, that’s what he tells himself.

Tork is a green-haired mind-reader.

They haven’t been together for long, but when Adam realises Tork’s birthday is coming up, he knows he has to make this the best birthday ever. But what to buy someone like Tork? And how much to spend?

Every time Tork calls, Adam’s knees turn to jelly, and he’s not so much a sex god as a whimpering idiot.

Can Adam take control and make the birthday dinner perfect?

What happens when the kitchen sparks end up in the bedroom with Tork and Adam naked?

Cameo appearance by Dickens the cat.

Cheese and Pickle

This was a very funny, I loved Harvey. The story is told from his point of view. It is very easy to get in touch with his feelings. He tends to make this interpretations on every little thing that happens, it could be the most insignificant thing to others, but for Harvey, when is something about Gregg, even a simple change of  the usual clothes have an important meaning. It’s a bit sad to see how much struggle this two have to make things work, it becomes a little frustrating at times, but that might be the fun part of it.

I had an issue about this, It felt like it was lacking a  little character development, mostly in what concern to Gregg, but I also felt I didn’t get to know too much of Harvey either. Maybe this was on purpose because it did add a little mystery to the relationship, which was quite good, but I ended it wanting to know so much more of this beautiful characters.

 

The Detonator

I loved to see how things are working for Adam and Tork, I love this characters so much. This time the story is told from Adam’s point of view, who is preparing to celebrate Tork’s birthday, but he starts second guessing every choice he’d made. I just couldn’t help to feel bad for Adam, generally not a very sympathetic character because he’s always hiding behind some made up hard cover, but this time the reader gets to know his true self, so full of insecurities.

Another great story with this pair as main characters, I can’t get enough of them.  The way their relationship has growth is amazing, they shared some beautiful moments together. It is nice to see how different thing are for each other, how extremely different their personalities are, which makes such and interesting read.

I think it can be more enjoyable if the reader already know the characters, nonetheless I think it could be appreciated too as a stand-alone.

In general, both stories are just so lovely, truly beautiful. I think anxiety and insecurity are the elements connecting this two stories, it really seemed like Adam and Harvey had so much in common on terms of this features. I truly recommend this to any reader who love sweet and fun stories.

I love to read M/M books. I’ve only start in 2015 so I’m still doing a lot of catching up with some series and getting to know some authors. I love to read stories with dark themes, a lot of angst and complex characters. I work in mental health and I’ve always been interested on how mental illness is portray in books, so I would probably read any book with that subject.

Here are some of my favorite books
