Boy Fun – A collection of 20 Erotic Stories Boy Fun – A collection of 20 Erotic Stories
I was wondering what to expect from an M/M erotica anthology from Xcite – most of the gay erotica I’ve read in the past has been either written for a gay male audience or has been the more romantic stuff aimed at the M/M romance readers (mainly female, I presume). This anthology fits somewhere in the middle, with stories from across that spectrum: from hard and kinky to sweet and vanilla, there’s something for every reader in this lot. You will also find a range of genres and themes: contemporary, historical, BDSM, group sex, voyeurism, humour, bittersweet, and first times.
Of course, with such a wide range there are bound to be stories that you enjoy more than others, but there were very few I didn’t care for and many that were a big hit. The writing is all of a decent quality, and in some stories in absolutely excels.
Particular highlights for me were the stories from JL Merrow, GR Richards, Chrissie Bentley, Kay Jaybee and Penelope Friday – they all contributed stories that were not only superbly written and hot, but that had fantastic pay offs that made me want to read them over again.
All in all, I can recommend this anthology for anyone who wants to sample a wide range of gay erotica and discover the themes and styles that work best for them. It’s hot, and it’s a fun read (despite the dark and traumatic story it kicks off with).
