Book Blurb

A plan for a chocolaty surprise Valentine’s gift goes horribly, if not hysterically, awry as David tricks his boyfriend, Jay, into posing for an erotic mold—which is not at all easy to do when your boyfriend doesn’t know he’s posing for it. Not easy, no, but certainly fun, especially when it’s cast in the middle of the woods on a beautiful, sunny afternoon. Though when the gift eventually arrives, wrapped in red silk, it’s not sent to the right house, nor eaten by the intended recipient. Still, these two have enough love, if not certain large appendages, to share, and it’s a happy Valentine’s Day ending for everyone, just the same.


Book Review

This is a really funny short story, with enough humor to keep me laughing throughout most of it, and quite a bit of heat when the actual –uhm – mold of a certain body part is being made. David has to think on his feet to manage the deed, and Jay is blissfully oblivious what the real plan is – but he has a grand old time being entertained and distracted by his deviously clever boyfriend.

What happens with the actual gift, once David's plan has been put into action, is even funnier. The 'mistake' that was made was really logical, but annoyingly doesn’t lead to the planned result. David takes it all in good fun, and proceeds to the real business of Valentine's Day, making Jay even happier, and this time without any distractions. Jay is the kind of super-relaxed boyfriend whose only concern is David's happiness, so they truly are a good fit – with or without erotic molds.

If you like stories that will make you laugh, if you enjoy the mix of heat between two lovers and some humor in the way the story is told, and if you're looking for a short, romantic Valentine's story, you will probably like this short book.
