Lovely review of A Most Personal Property at Boy Meets Boy Reviews!
I’m thrilled with the whole thing, but was especially pleased that I passed muster on these fronts:
Two things stood out as outstanding were the level of research that clearly was put into bringing 1900 NYC to life i.e. the language, the clothing, the class distinctions, the rituals. I appreciate research and Ms. Glass obviously did hers and I applaud her for it. The second was the character development. Henry and even his friends were so real I felt as though I were tagging along with them on their trips to the park and cycling and going to the arcade. Everything about Henry felt so authentic and genuine that I was honestly surprised to discover that this author was female. Bravo.
My dear friend Ajax has written a wonderful book.
WILL SEATTLE MAKE A MAN OF HIM YET?
It’s 1991 and Steven Frazier has danced away half a decade in the Seattle club scene with his beautiful-but-poisonous best friend, Adrian.
Two glittering princes against the world, too high above life to care about what they might be missing. But everything changes when a chance meeting with older—not to mention handsome—businessman John Pieters, reveals a cosmopolitan world and possible futures Steven’s never considered.
Flashy club clothes won’t impress John, this charming man who knows so much about many things. Motivated by fantasies inspired by his crush on John, can Steven finally fight Adrian’s sick hold?
As he steps out into the larger world, supported by new friends, Steven must prove to John—and to himself—that he’s not a hedonistic rhinestone club kid, but a true diamond in the rough.
I loved this book. Seattle in 1991 was my year, really, so there’s that, but there’s also a terrific love story between charming MCs, great secondary characters, and hot sex.
Noelle Stevenson’s Nimona web comic is complete!
In case you haven’t heard of it, it’s a delightful story of shapeshifting, science, gay knights and the complexities of friendship in a high-tech medieval setting. And now it is done, so those of you who are WIP-averse have no excuse to avoid it!
LOVE this series!
