A Barb the Zany Old Lady Review: Denim (A Material World #4)by KC Wells

Standard

Rating: 4 stars out of 5

KC Wells has hit my favorite hot buttons with this story—two sweet older guys, one a sexy construction worker, and the other a bear who has no concept of his own appeal.  Both in their thirties but with two diametrically different views of the world, when Tony spots a cute bear headed into his nearby work site, he has to wolf whistle, right?  Too bad it takes days for Harry to realize he’s the object of the whistles coming from the construction site where the cute guy with the muscles is working.

This story is a journey of discovery for Harry, who begins as a guy with a poor outlook on life—dead end job in a dead end neighborhood with no good future prospects. Forget men—his clubbing days are long gone since he moved back home to take care of his ailing mother who passed away a while ago.  He hasn’t even cleaned out her closets and family memorabilia. Why bother? 

Tony, on the other hand, recognizes his value and enjoys his family, though he’d rather not still be living with his mother at age 30. But he’s full of life and he loves a bear—specifically the one he spots every day, so he sets his heart on Harry and won’t take no for an answer. Fortunately, it works, and though it takes time, he eventually convinces Harry that he really wants him and desires him exactly as he is.  Too bad Harry’s self-esteem is so low that he can’t help believing that Tony would like him better if he were thinner. 

That plan doesn’t work well, thankfully, and by the end of the story, it’s evident that this couple is truly meant for one another.  I appreciated the author’s treatment of Harry’s issues, not making light of his very real fears, but showing the consequences of the actions he chose to make changes.  Tony is a sweetheart with a hoard of friends, many of whom we meet and get to enjoy, and Tony’s persistence, love, and support bring Harry to the peace and contentment he never believed he’d have. 

I recommend this to those who enjoy MM romance among the over 30 group, especially those that feature characters struggling with personal issues and self-esteem.

Cover by Meredith Russell features a close-up of a young man in a denim jacket, open to reveal his smooth chest. This represents Tony, the sexy construction worker—spot-on and attention-getting and in keeping with the series theme.

A Barb the Zany Old Lady Release Day Review: Lace by KC Wells

Standard

Rating: 4.5 stars out of 5

Oh, nice one! This short story was a hot romp between two men who’ve been friends for a long time, but never lovers—until now. Dave has never come out as bisexual until he finally gives in to his attraction to his best friend, Shawn, and breaks up with his girlfriend.

Unfortunately, though he gets the courage to tell Shawn he broke up with the woman because he’s bisexual, he chickens out before he can tell Shawn that he desires only Shawn.

Shawn has loved Dave for years—the principal reason he hasn’t had a long-term boyfriend—but when he hears Dave’s announcement, he’s shocked speechless and then upset when Dave runs out. How can he let Dave know he’s attracted if Dave runs away?

When Dave finally musters the courage to return and tell Shawn, he discovers lacy underwear in Shawn’s drawer while helping to put his laundry away, and from there on, the inhibitions evaporate. The two discover each other’s bodies and eventually realize their mutual romantic attraction. It’s too bad Shawn thinks it’s only because of the kink, and when he tries to explain it to Dave, MISUNDERSTANDING occurs. Caps intentional. Readers will enjoy just how they finally get back together for their HFN.

K.C. Wells delivers yet again. Be her stories long or short, I’ve discovered that I am a fan, and I count this shorter story among my favorites from her to date. I definitely recommend this one. Of course, I have a place in my heart for manties, so it was fairly easy to interest me in starting this, but these great characters kept me riveted to their story to the end.

The cover by Meredith Russell is a fantastic and drool-worthy view of a male torso clad in lingerie—from lacy undies to a lacy garter belt leading to, I can only guess, perhaps lace-topped stockings. Yummy.

When Shawn’s best mate Dave breaks up with his girlfriend, Shawn tries not to get his hopes up. After all, Dave’s still straight, right? Wrong. Dave reveals he’s bisexual, and that pounding you hear is Shawn’s heart. He’s loved Dave for so long, but he’s not about to jeopardize their friendship by telling Dave how he really feels.

But when Dave discovers Shawn’s little kink, it opens up a whole new chapter for the two friends. Except Shawn can’t help but worry – if there was no kink, would Dave be there? And is Shawn brave enough to find out?

A standalone short story of lust, lace – and love…

Author Bio
 

Born and raised in the north-west of England, K.C. WELLS always loved writing. Words were important. Full stop. However, when childhood gave way to adulthood, the writing ceased, as life got in the way. K.C. discovered erotic fiction in 2009, when the purchase of a ménage storyline led to the startling discovery that reading about men in love was damn hot. In 2012, arriving at a really low point in life led to the desperate need to do something creative. An even bigger discovery waited in the wings—writing about men in love was even hotter….

K.C. now writes full-time and is loving every minute of her new career. The laptop still has no idea of what hit it… it only knows that it wants a rest, please. And it now has to get used to the idea that where K.C goes, it goes.

And as for those men in love that she writes about? The list of stories just waiting to be written is getting longer… and longer….

K.C. loves to hear from readers.
