    One thought on “B. Quick”

    1. The romance was understated and cute the main protagonist misunderstands what s going on with his love interest a lot, but you always know they ll have at least a HFN No sexual content depicted at all kissing only The mystery is really enjoyable The writing is actually GOOD although there are a few typos this is a book which comes across as wry, witty and engaging Currently it s free on Kindle, but this was good enough it s worth paying for especially as it s a decent length Definitely recommend [...]

    2. This was actually pretty cute I m not sure what I expected, since i had never read anything by this author before, but I will now The story, the writing, and the characters are funny and intriguing If you re looking for steamy, this isn t the book for it the relationship factor doesn t exactly take a back seat to the mystery, but the romance is sweet than erotic IOW, no sex scenes I thought the mystery and the miriod of side characters were very well thought out.My only one very small complaint [...]

    3. College professor Bill Yates is on his way home after being stood up on Halloween Having wallowed in his sorrows just a bit at the bar the only gay bar in the area , he opted to take some backroads and drive slowly, not entirely certain he should be on the road at all But when he passes someone stopped on the bridge and is fairly certain he sees them throw something over the edge into the river below before driving off, he can t help stopping to see what it is And with that, he s pulled into adv [...]

    4. I enjoyed this It was goofy and over the top, but really fun Professor Bill Yates is the sort of person who would drive you crazy in real life but is entertaining to read about He is irrational and absent minded He forgets what happened two minutes ago, he mistakes what he thinks for what happened and imagines the most lurid explanations for things and then forgets they aren t true At one point he thinks to himself that if he and Brian could sit down and consider the events carefully for a few m [...]

    5. If one expects a bit of gay fluff erotic or otherwise , one may be disappointed, but definitely not with this deftly plotted and narrated story by C.S Laurel What is provided, is completely not what I expected, but what an entertaining exploration this proved to be Middle aged, gay, almost closeted English professor Bill Yates teaches at a tiny college in a slightly larger town He goes to clubs elsewhere, which is why he arrives back in town in the small hours of the morning after Hallowe en, to [...]

    6. Stood up, mildy hungover and depressed whilst driving home through the back roads from an out of town gay bar night out, semi closeted middle aged College Professor Bill Shakespeare Yates with such a name, of course he teaches literature witnesses a body being thrown over a river He unthinkingly dives in to save the victim or retrieve the body and lo the first meeting between himself and one slim, tall, green eyed blonde nineteen year old Brian Quick Who threw the unconscious and drugged Brian o [...]

    7. I won t give a summary of this book because I believe it doesn t make any sense to repeat the book description yet given._______________________________I didn t even expect much from this book It fell into the genres I like M M and crime and so I thought I just give it a try.I found a real treasure I cannot remember any book that made me laugh so hard Laughing out loud while reading is something that usually never happens to me.Laurel uses a very intellegent kind of humor that you ll highly enjo [...]

    8. This book was a great read Its a homo erotic twin peaks in the colorado mountains The narrative lends itself well the noir ish feel of the story I hope to see another offering from the author soon The characters were engaging, the setting was believable if slightly askew , and the mystery both drove the story and got lost in it Peaks, noir, engaging, mystery yeah, i think that wraps up B Quick.

    9. I think the only thing holding me back from liking this story was that it was a bit too predictable That, and the age gap was a bit much for me as well I did really like the two main characters though and there were some pretty humorous lines Overall, a good, fast read and fairly well done I would recommend it to any who enjoy stories with gay protagonists and also, I would love to see by the author in the future.

    10. This funny mystery amused me and kept my interest all the way through The narrator is completely goofy, insecure, nearly nonsensical, and strangely appealing the eccentric college professor ramped way up A few grammatical errors in the narrator s internal monologue, so wrong for an English professor, did jar one out of the book occasionally The narrator s voice Philip Marlowe crossed with Hunter S Thompson crossed with Miss Marple No, that s not it, but it was fun to read.

    11. OMG I couldn t put it down Granted there were a few misspellings, some words missing and wrong words used, but oh man was this so good It had my mind going Trying to think who did it I never thought it would turn out to be who it was Although Elderman did start acting weird there But I would so recommend this book.

    12. The first chapter was a great set up for the main character and the plot, but then the next two chapters were a really lame attempt at humor I think that s what the author was going for , but were just confusing and annoying After that, things settle down and it turns into a neat little mystery with a side of romance.

    13. could not finish, the writing was just not my cup of tea It felt messy and everywhere at once, I couldn t concentrate on what was actually going on because of the stream of conscience thoughts of the main character Maybe if it wasn t written in first person POV, I usually don t mind it, but in this case, I did.

    14. I liked the story and would read other writings from the author I was intrigued by the description of the protagonist as being middle aged because he is described at the being 3 months short of his 30th birthday 30 is not middle age to me Regardless of that, the character is less mature than the 19 year old Brian, who is a paragon It s a good light mystery story

    15. Exactly halfway through My impression so far is that this plot is like a bunny On steroids But the wiring is funny The MCs inner monologues are hilarious Though it is difficult trying to flow the plot Almost makes you want to read plot less Joyee Flynn novel Almost but not quite Finished A strong 4 stars

    16. A little confusing, and I wonder why the obvious clue wasn t checked out from the start Otherwise a great story I enjoy M M fiction, especially with very little sex.

    17. Quirky mystery with astonishingly clueless protagonist Astonishingly So if that s to your taste, you ll love this.

    18. If you haven t picked up this book yet, you really should A gripping murder mystery and plenty of humor, I found myself laughing out loud at parts, both times that I ve read it.
