Blurb: Ever wanted to spy secretly on other people’s lives? 

Ken doesn’t have a choice: his student summer job is manning the CCTV screens for the new central London shopping mall. But instead of spotting criminals or vandals, he becomes fascinated by a cute waiter from the local bistro who sneaks out to the backyard for his break—and plays sexy to the camera. 

Is he an old friend, or just an anonymous exhibitionist? Should Ken be excited by this naughty peepshow, or will people think he’s a voyeuristic pervert? Poor Ken’s confused and thrilled in turn. It’s like living in one of the movies he’s studying at university. He knows the man can’t see him, yet Ken feels a connection of some kind. It all encourages Ken to continue with his guilt-ridden Waiter Watch. 

Ken bears the suspense as long as he can, until a chance meeting and an abortive blind date provide the explanation to the secret assignations. But will this guide Ken to a real-life chance of romance?

Review: Ken sits back and watches the camera wishing for some action.  Something to help him get through each day at work.  Well he gets more then he bargains for, when a sexy waiter keeps putting on a show for him.  

This is a cute little story that makes for a nice hot read.  However for me, it is just a very short story that gives just a taste of what could be.  In a way it is a slow telling story, but for this story it could also be said to be fast paced.  I am afraid that for me, it just seemed to be too slow. The name of the book is actually right on and makes it funny as hell.  I enjoyed reading it, but wished it was a longer book with a bit more to it.  Other than my issues it is well told, pretty detailed and is a pretty good story. 

 I would recommend it to those who love a long time love story that neither party knew they had.  I will let you figure that one out on your own.

A Good Neighbour

(London Lads 03)
by

Clare London

A secret affair can’t go on forever.

Dylan Philips admits it himself: he’s a relentlessly single man in a small suburban town, both proud of and resigned to being a good teacher and a devoted nephew to his mischievous great-aunts.

When the aunts take a hand in matchmaking him with Josie Whitman, the girl who lives along the street, Dylan doesn’t tell them what kind of soul mate he’s really looking for—and the fact that he’s already found the man in question. It’s not Josie who’s travelling from London every month to her town property, but her journalist brother Neal. And Dylan meets up with Neal whenever he can.

But decisions must be made for their future. Dylan is risk-averse to everything from overseas travel to coming out, whereas Neal embraces adventure—and now he wants to take Dylan with him.

Horrified that his chance at love will move even further out of his reach, Dylan realises it’s time for him to own up to what kind of man he really is. He needs to find courage and compromise. And who knows whether the great-aunts will be a help or a hindrance with that?

First Edition published as A Good Neighbor by Amber Quill Press/Amber Allure, 2009.

How The Other Half Lives

(Perchance to Dream 05 / London Lads 02)
by

Clare London

Compulsively neat freak meets chaotic slob: can their living space survive the conflict?

Martin Harrison keeps himself to himself and his Central London flat as neat as a new pin. Maybe he should loosen up and enjoy more of a social life, but in his mind, that’s tantamount to opening the floodgates to emotional chaos. He agrees, however, to join the flat-sitting scheme in his building and look after another tenant’s flat in exchange for a similar watch over his when he’s travelling for his work.

A floor away in the same building, Russ McNeely is happy with his life as a freelance cook and a self-confessed domestic slob. He also joins the flat-sitting scheme, both to be neighbourly and to help keep his flat in order, as Russ also travels for his work.

For a while, the very dissimilar men never meet. Martin is horrified at the mess at Russ’s flat, while Russ finds Martin’s minimalist style creepy. But in a spirit of generosity, each of them starts to help the other out by rearranging things in their own inimitable way.

Until the day a hiccup in the schedule brings them face-to-face at last.

First Edition published by Amber Quill Press/Amber Allure, 2011.

Clare London

Newly single in his late twenties, and bored with his life in a London insurance company, Daniel Cross soon discovers the lure of social media. Excited at the chance of tracking down his old mates from a schooldays sports club, he launches a personal quest to find out what kind of man each boy has become. 

Dan’s first mistake is chatting online to the wrong man—Nick Carson isn’t one of the boys, but his brother. Nick isn’t offended and offers to accompany Dan on the trip to find the others. It’s the first step to friendship and something more for both of them. 

For Dan, the reunions with the “Gang of Four” range from startling and heartening to disturbing. Nick’s company is a constant support, though neither of them are prepared for the exposure of personal secrets they’d thought long hidden. Dan begins to suspect he’s really looking for a direction in his own life—and the excitement and purpose he craves may be closer to home than a quest with its roots in a boyhood dream.

Reviewer: Lisa

Review: I haven’t really had a chance to read many stories by this author however it was an interesting story.  Although I did have some issues with it, such as how does one to get the man’s age and not have used any social media just seems wrong.  I don’t see how it could be possible at this time.  I also felt that the blurb told the story itself.  

Daniel has decided to take a road trip and look up his old friends.  Too bad he contacted the wrong guy but ends up being the right man for him.  It’s one of those stories to see where old friends are now days.  However I just didn’t see the connection to the past at all.  Now Nick is actually an older brother to one of the guys and decides he wants to go along with Daniel on this trip.  It might turn interesting, but if you want to know read the book.  

Now as I said there were a few issues I had with the story but I won’t go into it because each person has an opinion that might not be so bad for another.  It is a cute little story with just a hint of kink to it.  I liked how the guys seemed to grow together if that is the right word.  There are some funny scenes which made it rock for me. 

However the story itself felt a bit off, the story is set in England and for an American it comes off a bit strange but perfect for the story.  It is very defined and fully developed for such a short story.  The characters were so real like that it seemed like a person would know them on sight.  It is an entertaining story and also a nice read.  I could have used a bit more heat but it was pretty good either way. Now the story itself was very good but I find that it wasn’t for me.  It was a little too sweet, if you know what I mean.
