Slow Bloom Slow Bloom #1I REALLY RECOMMEND THIS Slow Bloom was a real treat it blew away all my expectations and I was expecting summer fling between younger man and older man Lots of sex and a uick HEA I got so much than that I was surprised and moved all in one So I think Slow Bloom is anExpression of Sexuality What I mean is that the characters and the story offer up so many ways to look at love sex and relationships Also the discovery of a young boy finding out what his sexuality is and not just leaving it at I am gay Personally I have never read an MM erotica like this and I hope to read much like this book in the futureRicky is a young boy of eighteen who has had a crush on his next door neighbour since he was fifteen The roblem is Jack is thirty years older than he is and secondly he has no idea Ricky even exists Everyone in the neighbourhood knows that Jack Corson is gay but he is famous and talented so he is retty much accepted He doesn t flaunt his lifestyle so no one really cares Well Ricky cares and after landing a job working as Jack s gardener he decides to make a move A little interlude in the kitchen was supposed to be a one time thing a little seduction on Ricky s art to experience what it s like just once to be with Jack Then Ricky is assaulted and he calls the one erson he knows he can trust and that is Jack and it leads to one hawt summerThis summer is about not only sex but also a discovery of a young boy coming into his manhood All the things he thought he knew about sex about gay sex is broadened with Jack They go on a journey a man of forty eight who has seen it all and done about everything is made to see things in a whole new light because of his young lover Ricky learns about himself and finds a confidence in Jack s arms that it was in every sense ok for him to just be RickyThe book is not without a few obstacles Jack is afraid that he might inadvertently changing Ricky to J.R.R. Tolkien please him its never his intention to corrupt him but to make him reach decisions on his own Thislays out sexually and it becomes clear that this relationship is a lot than sex Jack makes Ricky happy he is one hundred ercent himself with the older man Moreover Ricky is teaching Jack to just loveThe sex is freaking awesome in my opinion it happens uite often but each time I am a little shocked It ushes boundaries and it was boundaries I appreciated and a little self discovery I like men who sometimes wear women clothing gasp I thought it was the freaking greatest Prophets Unarmed: Chinese Trotskyists in Revolution, War, Jail, and the Return from Limbo part of the book and I thought WHY NOT I like to wear boxers baggy sweatpants and baseball caps andut a little swagger in my walk So why can t a man enjoy wearing a dress now and again and feeling sexy It s not a huge The Labyrinth part of the book but I thought it wonderfulI really loved the book and some readers might have aroblem with the age gap So let me say its not about an old man taking advantage of a young boy it might have been about a young boy wanting to land his crush but it evolves to something greater It is a love story and it s beautiful and I freaking loved it The characters were awesome I loved Jack he is just this grumpy old man but a compassionate and caring one This book is no boy searching for a daddy cus Ricky already has one I liked Ricky I loved how he was unsure but he became confident and someone to respectThis book is what I have always thought of sex and sexuality to each is own I do not think any thing about any form of sex is wrong as long as there is consent and the The Raven and the Falcon: Youth Versus Old Age in Medieval Arabic Literature person is happy Lets be real what might float your boat might sink my ship it s not wrong just not for me This one is a winnereople 35 StarsThis book took me forever to read even skimming It says it was 278 The Humanist Interpretation of Hieroglyphs in the Allegorical Studies of the Renaissance: With a Focus on the Triumphal Arch of Maximilian I pages but I don t think that s right 6200 locations And it was mostly sex Now I m not one to usually complain about sex in my books but there was waaaaaaaay too much here Not muchlot You know the sad thing is this could have been really good Lots of The Reproductive Bargain: Deciphering the Enigma of Japanese Capitalism plot holes though Underdeveloped story lines By the end it wasretty corny too Lots of sweethearts and baby s and mooning going on It was sweet in a way but total overkill And the sex was hot no lie But it was just too much The writing wasn t bad so I would consider other books from these authors Ones of the less t bad so I would consider other books from these authors Ones of the less y variety So read this one when you re in the mood for Your Life Still Counts: How God Uses Your Past to Create a Beautiful Future pure smut But even then justick a chapter to satisfy you Jack starts off as a grumpy loner who has been there done that By the end of the novel he has been reenergized by his love for RickyRicky gets a chance to explore sex and a healthy relationship He has had some experience with a selfish lover and a scary gay bashing Jack is there for him to lean on learn fromJack has had a LOT of experience and a LOT of Piers Plowman: A New Translation of the B-Text previous relationships Including a Masterslaveslave relationship that did not end well Jack is able to redeem himself through his selfless treatment of Ricky BDSM is talked about a lot due to Jack srevious relationships but not really racticed There are some subtle Ds elements but nothing to scare anyone away DYes there is a 30 year age difference Jack is described several times as having silver hair all over his body yum Ricky is a young lithe swimmer who just finished his first year of college Oh

Übernatürliche Mordfälle proof of our screwed up world I m not being hyperbolic uite frankly I should t be surprised I ve loved everything I ve read by Anah Crow Dianne Fox These authors decoded my DNA a while ago before I knew about them Now I spend my days hunting down as many of their books as I can digital oraperback and basking in the goodness of their stories The best way to describe this is as urely and simply a love story A erfect and exuisite love story The details are that Jack Corson a well known irascible and gruff writer think a modern day gay Hemingway has been semi rusticating in suburbia after abandoning his Diari past life And here s one of the countless little details that make this book great we find out all we need to know ab.

the swim team Jack Out Jack s Lancelot past not as an info dump but rather in the normal course of conversations remembrance Here s a snippet of who Jack is and why I love him with the intensity of a thousand burning suns Because I m too old to appreciate the romance of stumbling into having sex at random and not knowing what the othererson is thinking or doing I m going to take all the fun out of this Jack tapped the ash off his cigar and took a Scorch pull on it then exhaled looking thoughtful Also I like you too much to make it a game He reaches out and ran his thumb over Ricky s lips I ll tell you if I m not interested temporarily or indefinitely And trust me I llrobably tell you at some Labour Markets, Identities, Controversies point but it ll likely be temporary I work hard Peopleiss

as a whole contained story The rest of Jack and Ricky s love story we can dream up without too much difficulty I m already re reading Re read 12222018 I enjoyed this so much I still have the same issues however they didn t bother me near as much as they didreviously Bumping this up to 5 Reread 7172019 still love Jack and Ricky1122020 New decade still hot AF 4302020 Don t judge me i needed a comfort read just be glad I haven t counted the ACTUAL number of times i ve read this this year original reviewThis was truly enjoyable I loved the slow build of the relationship I will admit the rologue was cheesy Thankfully I had been warned so I kept reading The age difference could have been a big issue if handled incorrectly There was no creepiness or feelings of an older man taking advantage I think that the way Jack dealt with the Age Difference Was The Right Way To Go He Didn difference was the right way to go He didn try to get Ricky to commit He didn t act jealous if Ricky mentioned other men He was letting Ricky know that he was there but he was allowing Ricky to enjoy college life unfettered by a commitment to the hot older man at home Over time their feelings changed It was fun to watch So if I enjoyed this so much why wasn t it a 5 star read Even though they hadn t talked commitment I abhor on age sex with other eople beyond the MCs That is a limit that I don t normally go beyond It s a testament to how much I enjoyed the book to look beyond that I also didn t like the added drama of how Ricky s mom reacted to the news that he was seeing Jack It just seemed so over the top and out of character for how she had been ortrayed I do believe I can and will read this again in had been All Our Trials: Prisons, Policing, and the Feminist Fight to End Violence portrayed I do believe I can and will read this again in future Pretty good up until about 60% when it becameorn than story Yeah yeah You know I don t usually mind but it was fucking oversaturated with the endearments of Ohhhhh my baby Ohhhhh my sweetheart Baby my sweetie Ugh My dirty fun times became sappy cheese overload Up until then it would ve been a steady 4 star read It was like the author got bored and just wanted to hurry up and finish the story Lots of Discovering Our Past California Edition: Medieval And Early Modern Times plot holes view spoilerI was confused a bit with the spattering of Jack sast and a little In This Land: The Purple Book, Volume Four peeved with Ricky having sex with others Though it occurred BEFORE they were technically in a relationship and Ricky realized the magnitude of his feelings for Jack I still don t like random cocks all up in my story Most of it was just kinda mentioned but one time was in vivid detail No new cocks shakes fists hide spoiler MANTIES AND SWIMMERSgrowls Merior to reading this and me after I LOVED THIS LOVED IT Like I want to suirrel it away and make out with it and cuddle it and carry it around with me like Linus and his woobieI ve been in a minor book rut lately reading a couple ages here a couple ages there but nothing was grabbing me so Baby suggested bears and twinks and I The Houdini Solution: Put Creativity and Innovation to work by thinking inside the box perked up then I thought MANTIES Lo and behold if I didn t get bears twinks AND MANTIES Plus Anah CrowThis is a slow burn or bloom however you want tohrase it It unfolds slowly but surely and these authors show you every bit of their romance They don t hold back even a little bit Sure it Cybercrime and Digital Forensics: An Introduction probably could have been edited down and I m so glad it wasn t because I loved even the tedium Ricky is home after his first year of college and his father has arranged for him to work on Jack s lawn in exchange for access to hisool to keep up his training Something as ordinary as a broken lawnmower is the catalyst for this romance Jack notices the golden lawn boy having a meltdown Who could re. Orson on the other hand is a suburban hermit with a tangled ast Jack's a lot experienced than Ricky cantankerous and than a little anti social When an unexpected one time encounter between the two of them turns into Ricky. ,

crackled a little bit a few times I didn t expect anything than a hot sex filled summer romance How could I with a 30 yr age gap between them Honestly this can t go anywhere except it did Somewhere along the way Jack stopped being such a curmudgeon at least around Ricky He got used to Ricky being there talking to him being with him going shopping with him and just spending time together The last scene between the two of them at the end of that first summer damn near brought me to tears it was so bittersweetThey moved against each other like they could almost soak into one another s skin and then the desperate need to be close would easeRicky goes back to school and things sort of go back to normal but Ricky misses him and turns up for Jack s annual Halloween One Small Step: An Anthology

time together which just makes the ache worse when they have to art again Surprisingly there s very little angst They re both very open and honest with one another and the trust grows exponentially with every rendezvous What I liked best was even though Jack s got his own footpath around the block nothing was the same for him He opens himself up in ways he never has before and he just loves Ricky He wants him to be happy He wants what s best for him and than anything else he just wants Ricky to be Ricky He s old enough and wealthy enough to fit himself into Ricky s life If that s what Ricky wantsAnd he does He has to battle both his friends and his arents to convince them that he loves Jack for Jack and doesn t care about the age difference and those are some tough battles His friend Jason doesn t ull any unches and his mom says some really hurtful things in the heat of the moment but love is love and it doesn t do mathEvery one of these characters came alive on the age Some added to the subtle telling of Jack s backstory Some added levity Jason actually reminded me a lot of Blake from The Prescott College series only smarter Every conversation felt honest and genuine All of it added to the magic that is Slow BloomMaybe it just hit me at the right time Maybe it was the MANTIES Maybe it was the beartwink trope I love but this is going down as one of the best things I ve read all year I Really Wish This Would Write Re wish this author would Re September 2015 I feel like there is so much I want to say about this book compared to last time I ll start off
