“It’s Enough” tells the story of Crispin and Wills, high school best friends who lost their virginity together — and whose lives have since taken very different paths. When Wills returns home for break, Crispin’s still madly in love with him. But does his best friend share the same feelings?

These 3 related stories are proof that one need never doubt that short can be really hot. The reader has to commit so little time, so Ms McBryant grabs you fast and tightly. We are introduced to Crispin and Wills, friends since age five, who have only recently graduated high school. Immediately we learn that they were each other’s first, and they are off to do it again.

Boy do they ever!

Their back story is sensibly and rather beautifully explicated. The personality differences of the boys are noted. Wills, seeming to act with more drive and assurance, is essentially nervous in society; Crispin, always easier with people, underneath teeters on the edge of self-doubt. A perfectly matched pair.In three episodes, we may not achieve a HEA, but ever so nicely, we can believe it will be possible as our heroes grow older and more worldly.

As an aside, this reviewer, with perhaps some inbred prejudice, is always interested in whether women writers of gay erotica in any way misunderstand or misstate the physicalities gay sex. Huzzah for Ms. McBryant: she really nails it!

  • Your last paragraph is the highest compliment I could possibly receive. As a woman, I always make sure I have gay friends beta and read gay sex tips like I’m a sixteen year old coming out of the closet. I’m totally humbled and grateful for the amazing review and especially for that high praise. (I also don’t blame you for the inborn prejudice; I’ve had many a convo with gay friends about women writing m/m fiction).


Please comment! We'd love to hear from you.


I'm a retired professional. My husband and I, each with an ex-wife, between us have six married children and 10 grandchildren. We both read voraciously, with a strong leaning to gay romance and HEA. Stories with a little (okay, even loads of) sex, and a lot of tears, always pleases.
