ó Rocking Hard Volume 1 ó I hesitated between 2 and 3 stars, but because the last story was quite enjoyable, I settled for 3 There are some stories in this anthology that didn t offer much to me usually, there was almost no conflict at all in the story, or something so minor a misunderstanding, as usual that it was solved in a couple of pages at most Also, the collection really needed an editor of course, it depends on the author some were quite well written If you want to read some fluffy stories about hot musicians one f f, otherwise m m , I guess you could try this, but don t expect too much.

Pending review still to come from MM Good Book Reviews Wait for it wait for it.
I purchased this anthology just for Talya Andor s work because she s one of my favorite writers ever, and I was happily surprised to enjoy some of the other stories just as much.
I loved the very natural progression from friendship to love in Centrifical by Sol Crafter Crafter s a great writer who really showed how deep the friendship was between Marty and Jim, and made me definitely feel for Marty in his unrequited love Crafter fleshed out these characters and made them feel real, which made me care very much about what was happening to them I loved how witty the story and dialogue was and how it felt so current with TV, the Internet and fandom in general It felt as though this entire story could actually happen It was a really sweet and enjoyable romance that was beautifully written.
I also loved A Haunted Melody by Angel Propps This f f story was a mystery with a touch of the Fantastic compilation Must say, my favorite by far was Courage wolf never sings the Gorram Blues, followed by Centrifical.
