Once upon a time, a group of authors wondered… What if the Heart2Heart app — the dating app with a glitch that matched up the oddest, most perfect couples, and sponsored the charity date raffles that helped dozens of people find love — offered a classifieds section, too?

Need a handyman who knows how to wear a tool belt? Have a closet of drag costumes that needs a new home? How about finally tracking down that guy who made the perfect drink, or who’s just the right height to reach the top shelf?

Join some of your favorite authors of gay romance as they bring you sixteen brand-new stories inspired by reader suggestions!

Once again, all proceeds from this collection will go to the authors’ favorite LGBTQ charities, to ensure that love in all its forms will be celebrated and protected every single day of the year!

An Alisa Review : Escaping Camp Roosevelt by Bryan T. Clark

Standard

Rating:  4 stars out of 5

“He’s a bad boy—cocky and damaged. So, why can’t I stop thinking about him?”

Broken Dreams

Sociable and unselfish, eighteen-year-old Tucker Graves loves two things—his darling little sister and the thrill of playing baseball. He never dreamed that he’d be homeless, but after a series of misfortunes, his life is nothing like he could have possibly imagined. Shocked and shattered, Tucker, his mother, and his baby sister now must brave the dangers of a dilapidated homeless encampment called Camp Roosevelt.

A Wounded Heart

Homeless since the age of fourteen, Dancer has mastered the tricks of living on the streets as a sex worker. The quiet, reclusive, and calculating ways of this twenty-year-old, green-eyed Adonis help him to survive. He hides his emotional scars from the world by interacting only with his clients, whose occasional bizarre requests he reluctantly fulfills. Dancer’s past has taught him to trust no one.

A Second Chance

When Tucker and Dancer come face to face on a stormy night, having been thrown together under the same roof, Tucker brings out a feeling in Dancer that he didn’t know still existed in him—desire. Neither man can deny the attraction he feels for the other. But some scars run deep, causing both Tucker and Dancer to question whether falling in love is even possible, especially when survival is on the line.

This story really gives a look into homelessness and how they live.  I was able to see the characters frustration and hopelessness when it came to their situation and not knowing how to break out of the cycle they have been in.  It was nice to see Tucker give Dancer a reason to break out of it and them give each other hope.

Tucker has been staying with his mom and sister to protect Mattie from his mom’s addiction.  Though it seemed horrible at the moment I was very glad that his mom ended up being arrested and it looks like she was doing better in the rehab she is in, though I wasn’t seeing any remorse for how she acted but would hope that would come in time and with the distance apart.  Though Tucker loves Mattie I was glad that she is able to be with their mom since it takes a large burden off his shoulders.

Dancer has had to make tough choices over the last six years and you can see how it has ate at him.  I was glad that him finally letting down his walls was a big help in breaking free but unfortunately it was mostly due to his mother making an appearance in his life again.

I unfortunately didn’t connect much with these characters and I don’t think was way anything about the situation they were in.  These two just so quickly switched there moods or flipped how they were feeling, I just felt much of it was disingenuous.  I was glad they get out of their situation but it was mostly due to the luck of Dancer’s mom finding him and her having the money to change things.  I’m not sure what they would have done if that didn’t happen.

The cover art by Karrie Jax is nice, giving a visual of the two man characters.
