A Hearts On Fire Review

3.75 STARS-- Lana McGregor's debut novella "His Roommate's Pleasure" is a steamy little nugget featuring two college roommates figuring themselves and their kinks out. Adam, geeky philosophy major stumbles on his supposed straight-jock roommate's gay BDSM themed porn on his laptop when borrowing his PC for a moment. Adam is shocked but intrigued because though he's out of the closet, he's never had any sort of sexual experience.

Josh, the closeted jock, is more than happy to help Adam and himself out in that department. Both roommates never spoke to each other than in passing so this shared interest in Josh's porn stash was a interesting building block. The story is a number of scenes between the two and also a development of a friendship between two people who on paper are opposites.

What I liked? The kink! It was fun reading about novices trying out collars and paddles. Or leashes and safewords. And the rimming scene...I enjoyed. Both men figuring out their likes and dislikes in the bedroom, it was cute. Plus the two roommates not declaring their love once they had their first sexual experience, it was appreciated. And the wait for actual penetration - not until the last 10% (made feel like a lecher but oh well) was exciting.

What I sort of liked? The wait for a kiss. I didn't know how much I took kissing for granted when it was denied until 72% in this story. But their first kiss and the rest that followed were great. And I also was not as in like with Josh until the kiss. He never reciprocated any of the oral pleasures Adam was always down to perform. I thought the story was going to go in the direction of Josh just using Adam for sex and staying comfortably in the closet.


I was pleasantly surprised.

The eroticism in just handjobs and the lust of these virgin men, it was nice. And it has a happy enough ending. I did not expect the stance that Josh took. :) (I would have enjoyed some perspective from Josh's POV) I definitely will read more from this author. I suggest for readers wanting a hot yet light short story with light BDSM tones, give this book a try.

This book kept me up all night, in the best sense! Adam and Josh fall into exploration of their sexual sides and it blossoms into much more. I love they way the author portrays both of the guys uncertainty and insecurity and excitement in exploration. 4 Stars ( )

Seriously hot for a couple of college students using each other as guinea pigs while exploring their new found BDSM tendencies. All the verbal discussion was quite refreshing and made this an unusually erotic read.

Highly recommended for M/M romance lovers who like the BDSM (specifically D/s) kink between college age men. Usually younger men isn't my thing, but this story really did it for me. ( )

This was a short, hot read about two college students that are both gay yet haven't experienced that side of their sexuality yet. It started out with Adam accidentally stumbling upon Josh's gay porn pictures and progresses from there. I really like the love story between Adam and Josh. You rarely read about beginning sexual explorations and this is kind of sweet with a bit of kink mixed in. I would have read more of this story if it were longer. My only criticism would be that I didn't like the third person narrative. It was a bit confusing in spots. Overall it was a good smexy read! ( )

The writing seems kind of childish even though it was an erotic M/M short book. Its a coming of age and coming out of the closet story wrapped into one. Not very well done but not terrible either. Its an OK read. ( )
