    1. It’s typically the storyline that needs more space to develop, and probably not exactly suitable for a novella. The plot and the characters are kind of sketchy, but the story is enjoyable. Too bad it’s short.

    2. 3 stars!Okay, Photo Booth is quite difficult to rate. First of all, I really enjoyed the beginning – the author made me believe that the story was moving in a certain direction, just to prove me wrong. I liked the characters and the idea behind the plot, but I had the feeling that it was a little too ambitious for the shortness of the story. I think that this story would have worked way better with a little more space – it definitely has a lot of potential. I however want to mention that the [...]

    3. * 1 star *Uhm, right the prompt for this story was pretty much ignored. Too bad since the prompt was really interesting, hinting at some mysterious things happening.And the guy at the bar (view spoiler)[ended up killed, but that happening was just mentioned in passing and kinda brushed off! What the hell?! (hide spoiler)]Disappointing.A short story in the collection "Don't Read in the Closet, Volume One" from the MM Romance Group Hot Summer Event 2011.Click HERE for the story online or  HE [...]

    4. ***Read as part of the free Don't Read in the Closet: Volume One anthology. Story #17***The story was ok. Yeah, it had its flaws. But it was still enjoyable IMO.The prompt would have needed more space. For a short story it was just to complex. So it's not such a big surprise that the story felt rushed.

    5. This was a good little short, although if it had been longer I would have felt more of a connection between the characters. It was really just lust, which is fine, but then stick with the HFN instead of trying to go for the HEA.

    6. Story Prompt:See this guy? He's away from the ranch and the life as he has known it for the first time. He found a room in this, well, shabby inn, but mysterious things seem to happen all around. Things vanish, people don't remember that they met before (or pretend to) and someone threatens the owner of the inn (seemingly for no rason). And now, coming home from a long day of looking for a way to provide for himself, he finds somebody in his room, going through his things, drawing his secrets in [...]

    7. This story was part of the M/M Romance Groups' Hot Summer Days Event. I love these projects because it matches an M/M writer with a photo and a reader request. To view the photo and request that inspired this story click on the link below (Warning photo depicts hot cowboy in skivvies): /topic/show/5I think the author did a great job turning this photo into a snapshot within the story. I could picture this photo precisely while reading that portion. The story itself was a little bit erratic and s [...]

    8. Detials! Detials! and Detials! They make or break a story and they made it in this case. I didn't have to wonder because I was told which gave me a full visual to fall into. It had this old gumshoe with and updated twist feel to it. I could just here the gumshoe talking as I read the story and it made a stimulating visual in my head. It was that well written with a classical flow. It was sensual and I loved it.

    11. Disappointing. The story doesn't follow the prompt and while the pic is used as a scene the character is supposed to be early 40's. He has aged well! I've read several books by this author and enjoyed them all. I love the Mahu series and those are favorites. This story didn't even feel like Neil's writing. There was no mystery and the answer to the employment problem was contrived and forced. Since Neil doesn't write paranormal maybe he should have picked a different prompt.

    12. Awesome story Neil! When I first saw this picture I thought it had a very noire feel to it, something about his silhouette in the glass of the door As I was reading this I was just totally blown away by how much the story fit exactly what I imagined. You really brought that image to life!

    13. i have mixed feelings about this onee even through i liked the story, there didn't seem to be much of a plot it could have been further developed to actually get to the HEA just kind of felt just like a hole set up that would lead to sex, i would have liked to see a little more than that

    14. So what do you get when you mix equal parts murder/mystery, a confident FBI agent, a down-on-his-luck cowboy, undeniable attraction, a job offer, and a budding romance? Well, a truly fantastic story of course! Loved all the unique elements of this one:) Great job!

    22. This was ok. The sex was too quick. The writing was good though.

    23. A very short story about a jobless cowboy, a sexy FBI agent and a non-mystery. At least we have a HEA, which is nice. I give this 3 unexciting stars
