Présentation de l'éditeur

19-year-old Abel Sims – hot, sexy stripper – is a favorite at the gay strip club The Phoenix. Having no family but his 16-year-old sister, Savannah, and coming from the streets – The Phoenix club has become his home, the other boys his close-knit family.

Abel doesn't trust the outside world and is content to remain within his safe haven. But when an overzealous customer sends Abel to the ER, he meets young, handsome Dr. Devlin Grant. The instant attraction he feels for the man stirs up the nightmares of his past, causing him to resist his new feelings. But when Savannah gets sick and ends up in Devlin's care, it becomes impossible to avoid the doctor.

And just when his heart is ready to trust this new found love – Abel is confronted with a disturbing fact about the doctor that reaches deep into the past he has been hiding and running away from.

ABEL is an emotionally charged, sexy, heart-wrenching love story that will break your heart, then put it back together again.

Warning: This book contains homosexual relations and crude language not suitable for readers below 17yo.

NOTE: For those coming across the 'Phoenix Club' series sporadically, they were written in this order, and if possible, should be read accordingly, due to story lines that run through all the books :

4.0 étoiles sur 5 This is One Third Of A Book 3 mars 2014
Par Alan Arthur Katz - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
I've decided to write a single review for the three books in this series, and post it here so that potential readers might get my $.02 worth before deciding whether to read them.

And you do have to read "them" because, much to my surprise, they really aren't three full books with beginnings middle and endings, but three parts of a single book. The first two end without resolving anything, leading (of course) to the third book, where all is eventually worked out. This is not a problem for me, as the first book is free and the later two are priced low enough that, taken together, it's still a pretty good deal.

This is the story of Abel and his sister Savannah, though neither is their real name. Abandoned by their drug-addicted parents to an orphanage at the age of 12 (or so - some places in the book mention him going into "care" when he was eleven, but by the end of the books, that's been changed to 13). They ran away when they were 14 and 11, respectively, and spent five years on the streets, sometimes feeding themselves out of dumpsters. When Book 1 starts out, they share an apartment and Abel is the featured dancer at the Phoenix, a successful all-male strip club. But since they're living incognito (you'll find out why towards the end of the second book), they can't avail themselves of any official assistance. Things get hairy when Savannah takes ill.

At the hospital, Abel meets Dr. Gorgeous and he's off to the races, falling head-over-heels in love with the unattainable good Doctor. And one reason he's "unattainable" is the deeply ingrained damage done to his soul by violent sexual abuse. I mean, someone has to believe that he's not good enough for the other one or it wouldn't be an M/M Romance.

The books are pretty well-written and, often, engrossing. The characters are either male strippers, hot doctors or young, well-kept millionaires, so everyone is far beyond attractive - which leads to a lot of hot sex on the pages. The plot did capture my interest, but both the big "reveal" and the ending were telegraphed as early as the second half of the first book. Nonetheless, it was fun to watch how it played out.

There were a few issues, however.

First, even though a major character falls victim to HIV, with all the teeth-gnashing and tears associated with the diagnosis, there is hardly a condom in sight anywhere in the book. And that's pretty unforgivable when three of the characters are highly promiscuous, and Abel's older lover was a complete stranger to him when he barebacked without even asking his status. I like bareback sex, I like reading about it, but in more responsible books, the lovers use protection until they are fully tested and commit to monogamy. Not in these three books.

Second, what is with the weepy gay thing that some female authors seem to have latched on to lately? I swear, Abel spends at least two thirds of these books, welling up, overflowing tears, or grabbing himself around the middle, bent over in hysterical sobs. Dr. Gorgeous, on the other hand, spends several weeks throwing up after he discovers something bad about a family member.

Third, how about an editor? Or one that can read? As much as I enjoyed all three parts of this book (and I did), I dinged it one full star for the dreadful editing that interrupted my concentration over and over again. Some of those errors were unforgivably illiterate: "Abel had nearly went into a panic" or "Devlin had went into medicine"? I don't know who could write that, to begin with, and who could possibly have missed such embarrassing grammar when editing it? By the way, authors, I can't say it enough: plurals do NOT take apostrophes: "He brought over an assortment of DVD's...". I didn't decide that I was going to remove a star for editing until I realized that the author couldn't even spell the main character's name consistently. Mostly it was "Abel". Sometimes it was "Able".

C'mon authors, you owe your paying readers something better than this. What good is a great plot and great characters and themes when you can't even read the book?

Oh well, enough of that. I did like the books, and they did move me deeply in a number of places, so I do recommend them to those of you who aren't put off by weepy heroes and bad editing.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Good potential 24 mai 2014

Abel comes across as too angsty to me sometimes, which is hard to say given what he's gone through, but he bounces back and forth between crying and sexing up everything with a penis. Possibly a valid response from someone who has been sexually abused for an extended period of time, but it wasn't really portrayed in a believable way. There were also issues with grammar, spelling and formatting that pulled me out of the story several times. With a little bit of editing and maybe a revamping of some of the Main Character's characterizations, it could be a pretty good book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Great main character, but otherwise a bit contrived... 12 mai 2014
Par C. Jefferson - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Abel is a dancer at a male strip club who is injured by an over-zealous creep of a customer and ends up in the ER where he meets Dr. Grant. For Dr. Grant it's lust-at-first-sight and he can't shake his desire to be with Abel no matter how hard he tries. But can he get through Abel's rough exterior that seems to push everyone away. And when Abel's sister gets sick, can he find a way to comfort the young man that doesn't just make things worse.

Content warning off the bat - descriptions and depictions of past sexual abuse/rape.

There's something about this story and the characters of Abel and his sister that really drew me in and made me want to like it. I think there's a lot of potential with the characters, but overall this first installment of the series didn't really hook me as much as I think it could have. The insta-love here on Dr. Grant's part is nearly jarring - he sees him once and doesn't just want to get intimate with him, he suddenly wants to mate with him for life? That's a bit too much. And I'm still not sure how I feel about the way things seem to conveniently and unrealistically line up at the end to provide the major twist that comes out. That said, reviews seem to indicate the next couple of books in the series are better than the first, so I'll probably give the second a shot just because I'm hoping for something better for these characters who do have a lot of potential for a great story.

I wanted to like this book. I could deal with the slightly implausible aspects and twisted friendships but there were three main recurrences that just wore me down. The first, the main character was nineteen and every single other character in the book referred to him as "kid" both internally and in dialogue. Its use through multiple sex scenes, describing stripping routines, and in numerous lustful internal monologues got creepy.

Second, the "kid". Never. Stopped. Crying. Literally. (And I know what literally means!) I mean, I don't think there was a scene in the book where his eyes didn't shimmer with unshed tears or his cheeks weren't wet with... whatever. I get that his life was full of stress and angst but holy crap. He cried about his sister, his past, his future, his fears, kindness, injustice, pain, happiness... I laughed out loud at a part where he wondered how he'd been pegged as gay because he wasn't the cliche. Or so he thinks!

Third, I do not think that word means what you think it means. This would be easier to overlook if it didn't happen so often, especially toward the beginning (or maybe I just got used to it). The most common example is "static". As in "static breathing" and "static heartbeat". I found myself pondering how something "not in physical motion" expressed arousal better than, say, an erratic example of the same. Especially strange because "erratic" WAS used in the book, just in other circumstances like "erratic behavior". Also, when you think about it, the "kid"s very presence was pretty deadly, causing all that apnea and mini heart attacks ;)

If the other books in the series were also free, I'd probably tough it out. But as it is, I'm going to have to live with my curiosity.

CJ Bishop has a very clear and concise writing style giving vivid imagery when reading. Throughout the latter half of the book, there were minor mistakes—spelling and missing words. However, having adapted to the writing style, the mind had overlooked such mistakes and connected the dots to what is believed the author has portrayed. In addition, the reader can feel the characters and their feelings throughout. With such detail, it is no wonder why this book is a good read. I would highly recommend it!
