Into the Paranormal World: When a woman-loving player finds himself unexpectedly lusting after a male, he discovers the power of the paranormal.
Over the last couple of years, Mitch Lindson has watched his buddies fall in love and bond with gargoyles. He’s happy that they’re happy…but he doesn’t understand it. Settling down with one person isn’t even a blip on his radar, yet. On top of that, all gargoyles are male. Mitch used to double date with his friends. He can’t figure out their sudden switch. When the gargoyle Kardamon breaks up his bid to seduce a daughter of one of the paranormals, Mitch is shocked to feel arousal for the male. Confused, he runs. The dreams start shortly thereafter, leaving him horny and dissatisfied. When he discovers he can’t slake his lust in his usual fashion, Mitch’s frustration grows. It doesn’t help that Kardamon manages to seek him out at unexpected times and in secluded places, driving his unexpected and unwanted desire higher. Facing off against Kardamon, can Mitch find a way to get the blue gargoyle out of his system without his life being turned upside down?
Reader Advisory: Lady bits are spoken of in this story, however, no m/f intercourse takes place.
Though I appreciated the warning about “lady bits” – they weren’t really spoken of that often and those “bits” didn’t really affect my enjoyment of this story. I’m a huge Charlie Richards fan – I literally devour all her stories in all her series – but I can’t give this a good mark.
I never liked Mitch. He was a douche-canoe from the outset (his vision of women and love) and he never convinced me otherwise. I feel that Kardamon got the short stick and the way they figured out for Mitch and he to bond… well – it’s unique but…. not exactly loving or joyous.
These are short stories and I love their reliability but this time around it was too short to make me buy into any sort of “conversion” of Mitch to the gay side or even the bi side.
I can’t recommend this if you’re looking for something romantic. It had some interesting twists but that’s about it.
