I've only read one story in this collection so far. So this review is only for SE Jakes' story in the collection--
No Easy Way



"Keep this. Reread it to refresh your memories. Because I plan on doing each and every thing your beautifully dirty mind came up with. And soon."

"Not happening," Cary said firmly, even as an electric shot went through his body. But it was too late--Dylan was already gone.

His fucking MO.


THE CHARACTERS

 Cary - Sexy, genius school teacher.

 Dylan - A soldier returning from duty determined to get his man!

THE STORY

Look, sometimes you just want to sink your teeth into a juicy bit of MM romance. And that's just what I found here. This was a take-me-away story sprinkled with just a little angst, a surprise or two and fast pacing to give you that delicious bite.

Cary and Dylan have a history and if it wasn't for that this short wouldn't have worked. I was a little confused at first, trying to pair Cary with other characters in the story, but it quickly developed into an obvious, but broken, relationship between Cary and Dylan. Dylan has returned to Bluewater Bay and is going after what he left behind: Cary.

Cary has created a life that does everything to help him forget Dylan, or so it seems on the surface. But besides teaching Cary writes. He just happens to write his own personal fantasies.

Both Cary and Dylan have multiple reasons to want to leave Bluewater Bay and those reasons help give this short a little bit more than I expected.

THE WRITING

This was a quick, sweet, romantic story with a surprising amount of background and history for such a short read. SE telling me stories of broken bad boys is always a treat and for Valentine's Day it was especially sweet and tasty.

I would like to thank SE Jakes for providing me with a review copy in exchange for my honest review.
