ARC Review: Lunchtime Nibbles by Claire Davis & Al Stewart

Lunchtime Nibbles
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 realizes 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.

Todd's rating:

Well, this one was a mixed bag of shorts for me.


Cheese and Pickle:

I found this short to be too cryptic until way too close to the end of the story.

What was Harvey to Greg? Anything at all, other than a convenient Tuesday orgasm?

They don't even have one another's cell phone numbers, even though their trysts have been happening for a year.

I did like how it ended, but I felt like strangling a bitch due to all of Harvey's obsessive monologuing before that point, so around 3 stars for the first story.


The Detonator:

Love Tork. Love Adam. Love Tork *and* Adam.

Basically, this is the story of Adam trying his damnedest to give Tork a birthday to remember, then freaking the hell out that he's chosen things that Tork will hate.

Of course that's not going to happen, though, as Tork recognizes Adam's inept, off-kilter attempts for what they are. Heart-felt gestures of his affection for Tork.

And they all live happily until the next charming and humorous installment, so 4.5 stars for the second story.
