    Fluffy short about coming out of the closet, a little too easy and simplistic College age boys meet at an academic photo shoot total fade to black and rather forgettable.

  2. says:

    Light, simple story without conflict or any deep thoughts surprisingly straight forward for a GFY plot.The sister s dialogue seemed speeches than conversation and I have no idea what the fancy old car Lysander drives is, but the story otherwise bubbles along easily, just nothing to stick in your mind.

    Totally sweet and easy coming out or maybe finding out your gay story.No real drama or angst, just a cute short and what I found refreshing was the take on the church or at least the father s reaction and he is a pastor.People of faith don t always have to be homophobic, they can actually be understanding and supportive and loving, and it s nice to see that in a story

    Two collegiates, a job, and a discovery.University is the time when freed from boundaries we ve always known that one gets to reevaluate everything Finally figuring out the reason you didn t really like something because it wasn t what you wanted epiphany Very sweet, free of angst honestly, a bit conflict would have enhanced it and a coming of age story that makes life seem so easy.

    First of all, it was sweet, sensual and while the sexuality was hot, it was so gently treated as to make this a good story for LGBT youth to read as well I loved the genuine feel for British university culture and student life built into the story I liked how Chris s dad was as progressive a Church of England priest as many Episcopal priests are on this side of the pond I also loved the story appropriate alliterations to Captain Jack Harkness of Dr Who and Torchwood fame as well as using Narnia as an idiom for being in the closet wardrobe M.A Ford makes very clever use of British pop culture that also resonates here across the water Lysander and Chris make a fun couple and their story is a sweetly delicious read every bit as good as Belgian chocolate but without the calories.

    This was a very nice addition to the LL stories I liked Chris voice, the way the story was told and I liked that it wasn t smooth sailing from beginning to end, they had some stuff to work through On the other hand there was no unnecessary drama.

    Sweet UK based contemporary story Chris is in his 2nd year of university, and broke, at the urging of his sister he looks for a job and finds himself agreeing to be a photographic model for a PhD student Only he s not modelling alone and finds himself attracted to the other model, Lysander This attraction causes him to question his sexuality and he starts to explore his feelings for Lysander This is a gentle kind of story, which I would put into the NA category.

    Very cute and sweet and happy with just a touch of angst Okay the realizing you re gay is a bit cliche and the relationship skips over a lot, very quick And there were a few other little niggles I thought the title felt a bit forced in unnecessary side idea, For Want of a Nail and I feel like Tab didn t keep her word, which isn t so happy But it was very British, very cute, very short, and very sweet Highly recommended.

    Nice, sweet short college age gfy ofy.I did enjoy how sweet Lysander was, and how patient And how supportive even the extremely religious family, with a pastor for a dad and a pastor in training for a sister, was of the relationship Nice surprise Favorite Quotes I ve never felt the way you make me feel
