    One thought on “Silver & Gold”

    1. I don’t think I’ve ever mentioned a cover in one of my book reviews before, but Natasha Snow’s beautiful cover for Silver and Gold is honestly the kind of thing I’d want on my wall! This is an anthology of six novellas compiled by editor Amanda Jean, focusing on same gender couples with an age difference.This is not the kind of book where the power dynamic is exaggerated in favor of the older lover. I don’t know whether Jean selected the stories this way on purpose to avoid fetishizati [...]

    2. After the Dust (3.5 stars) - I enjoyed this story but felt the time Zev was overseas dragged a little bit. I did enjoy watching Zev and Julian together and liked how they did immediately fall in love with each other.Coffee Boy (5 stars) This was my favorite one out of the book. It did a good job of showing some of the issues Kieran faced as transsexual. It also did a great job of making the characters come alive. Seth mooing over Marcus and Kieran trying to get him to snap out of it was interest [...]

    3. Read the full review on Bookaholics Not-So-Anonymous.Note: This ARC was provided by Less Than Three Press in exchange for an honest review.Silver & Gold is an anthology edited by Amanda Jean and is composed of six stories with May-December love stories being the common thread that ties them all together. Each story brings its own unique flavor to this collection, enabling them to stand out and yet never lose track of what the anthology is about. I was able to get through the entire thing in [...]

    4. These anthology features 6 short stories. They're all intended to be age difference romances, but I have to say, early 20's/late teens matched to mid-30's doesn't feel very "silver." (This might be because I'm officially in my 30's now, and dammit, that's not old! :D)After the Dust - some heavy stuff here. Zev's brother has died, and Zev is left not only dealing with the loss and a raging case of PTSD, but also a street kid who's suddenly sleeping on his brother's couch. I really enjoyed it and [...]

    5. I received an advance copy from Netgalley for an honest review.This collection has a little something for everyone but the main theme of the anthology is love stories with an age difference between the main characters. The biggest thing that I enjoyed about these stories is that the younger characters weren't looking for the older character to "fix" their problems. They were all able to stand on their own feet and solve their own issues, which is not the norm that I have found in stories with Ma [...]

    6. I received an ARC of this book from Inked Rainbow Reads in return for an honest review.This is an anthology based on stories of couples with an age difference. Most of these stories were wonderful, full of detail and rich in character. Some chose to address the delicate problems facing May-December pairings, some kind of glossed over those difficulties. All were pretty engaging with characters that were extremely likable. Two things I will point out. This is not an anthology with those nice litt [...]
