review 1: Sooooooooo sweet♥Zack – our story teller, and Larry – his dorky antisocial best friend from forever, are college roommates and that works fine.When one day the boys need extra cash, Larry tells Zack that he´ve head that making “straight guy” porn movies pay well.Being totally stright boys, they need to practise for it, to make it right.Most of the book is them practising and that is both sweet and a little heart breaking…Because Zack finds himself not being so “straight” as the practise with dorky Larry continues.A really sweet little “Gay-For-You”, that was just what I needed last night to make me feel happy enough to go to sleep.
review 2: I requested a copy of this novella after reading someone else's review, and being rather intrigued.
... moreThe plot is simple - two college boys, best friends since childhood, roommates, but straight, short on funds, hope to make some extra cash filming a short porn scene under the premise that two straight men are getting it on for the first time.And because both of them are a wee bit nervous, they decide to practice beforehand. This was equally funny and sweet, hawt and emotional. Told from Zack's 3rd person POV, this novella manages to take the reader inside Zack's mind and follow along as he slowly starts seeing Larry in a new light. The author made me believe that Zack started to fall for his best friend, even though they'd never before entertained the idea of being anything but straight. And while we don't get a look at the workings of Larry's mind, there's enough subtext to see that despite his goofy dorkiness, he does have feelings just the same.It's difficult to write a novella. Some cram in too much, while some leave the reader hanging. This one avoided either. It was short, yes, but it said all it needed to say. Excellent work, Jamie. It's a real shame that it took me so long to discover it. ** I received a free copy of this book from the publisher. A positive review was not promised in return. ** less
