1: The Bitch by Todd_d172 This one is short and to the point. It has a sustained pace, nice elements of humor, serious drama, and the right amount of explicit scenes. I had to read it twice before I understood what was right in front of me, but perhaps you'll be faster on the uptake than I was. Excellent and very satisfying. I'd even add poignant in the depth of feeling the characters have for each other. Oh, and cooking, too. Very highly recommended.
2: The Blind Date Blues by Lubrican This is hilarious, and hot. He's written a million stories, so I'll never be able to read all of them, but the ones I've read so far are very very good.
8: My Mother's Son by jackieoh Perhaps not every son feels this way about his mother, but if he did, this is the way it might have happened.
9: Night of the Raven by Frank Lee This and "Wet" by Frank Lee are hot, yes, but remarkable as much for what is left unsaid. They're short, practically scenes, but each one hints at a backstory as well as things about the characters we can only guess at. Excellent reads.
12: Tom's Diary by Gina Marie Wylie Long, but very rewarding. And hot. Gina Marie also wrote Spitfire and Messerschmitt. Sadly, she left us all hanging in that one just as the two families were leaving for what promised to be an extremely interesting weekend at the beach. Something about "a little old-fashioned wife-swapping," if I remember correctly. Sigh.
