Présentation de l'éditeur

An Englishmen Story

Having rarely experienced another man’s touch, US Marine Damon O'Connor doesn't identify as gay, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t think about strong hands or where treasure trails lead, despite his commitments back home. Damon’s sense of duty is strong, and he’ll stop at nothing to do what’s right, even if that means dying for his country.

While stationed in the Middle East, Damon gets what he least expects in the form of Jay Wells, an out-and-proud British beer promotions manager working in the area. Jay is content working his life away and has no time for relationships. Neither does Damon, as he’s days away from deploying to war. Until they met, love was the last thing on their minds, but they’re determined to enjoy it while they can.

HASH(0x9ad90150) étoiles sur 5 absolutely perfect 14 juin 2013

this is a wonderful story - taut, articulate, humorous without being distracting, and winding up in the best possible way. The placement of the story in the Middle East couldn't be more timely, but there's no political commentary - it just enhances an already well constructed tale. If you're looking for a few hours involved in a book that will draw you in, give you a few tense moments and then make you feel good, then this is one to try. No one could have any reservation about recommending this book very highly - it's that good and you won't be disappointed.

HASH(0x9ad901a4) étoiles sur 5 Easy and enjoyable 16 juillet 2013

I enjoyed this story, it lived up to the blurb . it is not a sweet one, in fact Damon's actions at the start make me want to dislike him intensely. It is raw and in your face and shows yet another facet of the struggle that some people have with their sexuality. Ben Ryder does not promise or deliver any hearts and flowers except for the little sweet moment at the end. It is a gritty meeting of two men, raw and unvarnished.

It is set slightly in the future at least that is how I took it, it introduces a vaguely mentioned vaccine that I assume covers at least HIV AIDS, which made me go straight to the fact that sex when it happened would probably be bareback. Which is a good warning or teaser depending on which way you hang. They meet in situations where being gay is probably not a wise thing to flaunt, Jay being a marketing salesman for the Side Line beer company along with his squad of cheer leading girls and Damon a marine in for a free beer before being deployed into the latest hot spot, Iran.

It's all very closeted and they seem to go from bad situations to worse before it gets better. For a short story, it was a bit uneven, as in I thought there was more setup than was actually needed. Especially for Jay, as we get a fair amount of backstory through his eyes, whilst Damon's is done through conversation without him even there, and the romance of it seemed to be a bit hurried, good but hurried.

When all is said and done it was a fairly easy read, and enjoyable. It's a bit like drinking really, sometimes we get spoiled and treated to the finest vintage wine and sometimes all we need is to slam back a bottle of beer. Any one for another cold one?

HASH(0x9ad905dc) étoiles sur 5 Terrific Story!!! 29 juin 2013

A truly terrific (and unusual)story! I particularly like the slow and often obstructed attraction of one of the main characters - great suspense. Also, both characters are multi-layered and the plot line is extremely strong. At first you see almost no hope of these two diverse guys ever getting together, and the way the author weaves the spell is flawless. I higly recommend this book and would hope everyone who reads these words will give themselves the pleasure of a totally engaging read!

From the title of this book, Ben Ryder gives the impression that it is about sports. From the cover of the book, the artist gives the impression that it is about beer. Side Line is kind of about both. Jay Wells is an British beer promotions manager. He is an out and proud gay man. With the large number of American, British and Australian forces in the Middle East, the company that Jay works for wants to send him and his team there to promote their new beer. Side Line the beer is promoted mostly in sports bars, hence the name. There are several promotional appearances scheduled in Bahrain.

Damon O'Connor is a tough as nails, stereotypical U.S. Marine getting ready to ship out to Iran. He doesn't really identify himself as gay, but has had limited experience with other men. Damon is focused only on providing for his sisters at home.

Jay is reasonably likeable. He takes good care of his team, which is mostly made up of young, beautiful women. That is a tough job in the Middle East, where they must be covered up while in public. It is an even tougher job in a bar full of horny, drunk soldiers. Mr. Ryder really made me feel that Jay and his assistant Jackie, genuinely cared for the well-being of his girls.

From the first time we meet Damon, I don't like him. He continually calls Jay "buddy". This was supremely annoying to me. I wanted to slap the smirk right off his face. Damon treats Jay with no respect at all. There was a vague reference to "the vaccine" which I assume to be the reason there was no condom use during their "encounters". There was also no lube. (My personal pet peeve.) It seemed like Damon was almost raping Jay, but Jay kept letting it happen.

When one of Jay's girls is in danger, Damon does come to the rescue and helps Jay get everyone to safety. At that point there seems to be an acknowledgement of actual feelings between the men.

But their relationship is doomed from the get-go. Jay is returning to England. Damon is being shipped out for two years, then going home to Florida.

Unbelievably, Jay buys a home in Florida and years later, Damon shows up, calls him "buddy" and the book ends.

The best thing about this book was Jay's assistant Jackie. There was a side story about her and Damon's superior officer. She evidently made it possible for Jay and Damon to reunite.

I have read a lot of gay romance where the situation prevents the lovers from being together. I've also read a lot of closeted, closed off, emotionally unavailable men. Side Line had all those things and great potential. I wish Mr. Ryder had been able to put the ingredients together better and make me like these guys. I really wanted to!
HASH(0x9ad90a8c) étoiles sur 5 Enjoyable story that left me feeling not quite satisfied 25 août 2013

Contrary to what the blurb seems to suggest, the story is told completely from the POV of Jay, and they didn't enjoy days of romance. In fact, Damon's presence didn't even come close to taking up half the book. The `romance' aspect, and I use that term loosely, very much took a backseat to the rest of Jay's story.

What saved this book for me was that Jay himself really is likeable. He's funny, easy going and makes sure the girls of the Beer Squad are safe and looked after at those sometimes rowdy promotional events. His reactions were believable, if not completely logical (but that in itself is believable). Then there's Jackie, Jay's assistant and ex `trolley dolly' for the oldest and largest British airline. She is just all kinds of awesome. There was actually quite a bit of humour, especially the banter between Jay and Jackie and Jackie's one liners.

This was an enjoyable story that, much like Damon with Jay on more than one occasion, ultimately left me feeling not quite satisfied. I really liked Jay, Jackie was awesome and I warmed to Damon right near the end when we finally got to know him a little. But the majority of the story he was a jackass. It would have been nice to have had more of a build up to Damon's redemption and Jay and Damon as a couple, even if that part was in an extended epilogue. It felt like the story ended just as we were getting a chance to know Damon and there was no opportunity to see them together. It could barely be called a HFN. The rest of the story I actually really liked. It never felt boring or uninteresting.
