Love Has No Boundaries: Short Stories & Short Reviews Part 1

These short stories were written as a part of the M/M Romance Group’s “Love Has No Boundaries” event. Group members were asked to write a story prompt inspired by a photo of their choice. Authors of the group selected a photo and prompt that spoke to them and wrote a short story.

The Tail of a DogThe Tail of a Dog by Summer Devon

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Cute. Told from the dog’s point of view, and shows how two kind-hearted men find themselves through an unfortunate event. My favourite parts were where Javier was confiding in the dog, because people do talk to their pets and tell them things they wouldn’t dream of saying to another human being.

Falling AwayFalling Away by Lisa Henry

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

It was written in third limited, so that’s one good thing about it. It also had that good meh-like thing going on until it promptly fell flat on its face with that ending. I liked Dark Space, but this made me doubt whether I want to read The Island or not.

Smoky GlimpsesSmoky Glimpses by Nicole Forcine

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Left me slightly weak in the knees. It’s told in third person limited but Kaden’s voice is clear and personal. Also it’s a paranormal that left me wanting more of the story and the world.

Last First KissLast First Kiss by Piper Vaughn

My rating: 2 of 5 stars

It wasn’t bad but neither was it anything especially good either. An angsty short story that touched subjects far too big for its ~10k word count. Especially because a third of it was dedicated to the sex. Friends to lovers trope.

#First Impressions #Second Chances#First Impressions #Second Chances by Heidi Belleau

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Another friends to lovers story. It started out really well, then took a dip with the reveal, and only partially recovered. Cute but skimpy on the reality details.
