A big welcome to V.L. Locey as part of her review tour with Signal Boost Promotions for Tales of Bryant.
I love the descriptions of New York in this collection of short stories. I thought they were very vivid, and made me feel as though I was there. The motif of seasons linked the stories together well, and fit their relationship nicely too, in the different ‘seasons’ of them together getting to know each other, and building trust between them.
I liked Brian and Isamu together, and their very obvious passion for each other. I also liked the realism of their relationship, especially Isamu’s fear that talking about fidelity and confirming what they have is serious might scare Brian away. Using Isamu’s perspective to tell the story meant I as the reader learnt more about Brian as he did, although I thought Brian’s actions showed a lot about him and his motivations. I liked how he did open up to Isamu about his past, and how they argued about things and had to adjust to how they each approached life and situations that came up within their relationship and the wide world around them, rather than everything being all smooth sailing and sweet.
Brian and Isamu’s story is a feel good, sweet, yet realistic read, and although I did find there was a lot of sex for my taste, for the length of the stories it didn’t detract from my reading enjoyment.
I’d recommend Tales of Bryant to readers who enjoy a feel good sweet, yet realistic romance with likeable MCs. 4 out of 5 stars.
Four Seasons. Two Men. One Love.
For struggling film student Isamu Taylor, life’s refrain is about to change from boring documentary about a passionless delivery boy to a blazing and wildly erotic love story.
After spending weeks admiring handsome but older Manhattan executive Brian Gilles while delivering brioche to him in Bryant Park, the man of his lusty dreams has just expressed a desire to get to know Isamu better. A night on the town is just the beginning of a whirlwind romance that will span not only four seasons but countless years.
Amid the beauty and charm of Bryant Park, New York City, two men are about to discover that love knows no age or economic boundaries. This is a collection of four short stories starring these two amazing men, their one sublime love, and the park where it all started.
USA Today Bestselling Author V.L. Locey – Penning LGBT hockey romance that skates into sinful pleasures.
V.L. Locey loves worn jeans, yoga, belly laughs, walking, reading and writing lusty tales, Greek mythology, Torchwood and Dr. Who, the New York Rangers, comic books, and coffee. (Not necessarily in that order.) She shares her life with her husband, her daughter, one dog, two cats, a pair of geese, far too many chickens, and two steers.
When not writing spicy romances, she enjoys spending her day with her menagerie in the rolling hills of Pennsylvania with a cup of fresh java in one hand and a steamy romance novel in the other.
