    2. The first thing you need to understand about this anthology as a reader is that it is geared toward the teenage-young adult reader. That being said, you will not see the usual hot and steamy sex scenes that are standard in most romance novels. However, this collection of short stories is so well-written that the reader experience is totally unaffected by the lack of sex.This anthology is all about emotions and heartstrings. And let me tell you, with stories like Kameron Mitchell's, "All the Wron [...]

    6. This is a wonderful collection of stories by some outstanding authors to help raise money and awareness. These stories are about some of the struggles young men and women go through when learning how to deal with their sexuality. I was touched and surprise that I personally didn't realize how truly difficult it is for them to understand what being gay means to them. How devastating it can feel to think that no one loves you or understands any part of you. I think anyone who embraces the gay comm [...]

    9. Aimed towards teens/young adults this collection of short stories shines light and hope on what can be the most challenging and defining moments in a young persons journey. Piper Kay's Joeys Choice truly touched me. A must read.

    10. A Change of Heart by Adan DePiazz(3 stars)- This one was fairly average. It was easy to predicted where it was going when Brandt got into trouble. I wish there could have been a little bit more of Max getting to know the better side of Brant and a little more uniqueness to the characters.The Wrong Numbers by Kameron Mitchell (4 stars)- I liked this one alot. Ivan is vurnerable but I liked how Micheal helped him (view spoiler)[come out to his parents and face his fears. It also had a nice feel go [...]
