This is an eclectic combination of short offerings by Clare London called ‘Boys in Brief.’ Each story shows couples in a unique situation, some of which may not work for everyone; but for those involved in these tales, they find a way. Some are humorous, some deadly serious and full of angst. Even with the characters’ trials and tribulations they find a way to endure; all the stories have messages and, of course, a happy ending. Thanks, Clare for this varied anthology reminding us that there is no “right” way to love.
Excerpts from the review:
SALT N’ VINEGAR
… This is a bittersweet love story reminding us that the road to love is not always paved with hearts and flowers, but whatever hardships we endure are well worth the price, making our love shine so much brighter when there are two strong, equally committed partners.
THE BETTER PART
…This story helps remind us that any time we need to make a decision, our special “voice” is only a thought away. We simply have to listen.
…’Deep Cover’ reminds us that the only way to be truly happy is to be ourselves, regardless of what anyone else expects. We can’t be “under cover”, settling for anything less. As the 1980 army slogan says: “Be All That You Can Be.”
…’Dressing Down’ is humorous and witty, yet has its serious parts as well. It shows us the importance of being original, not always relying on the same things in life if we want different results. We need to be different, unique sometimes, shake up the status quo. It also reminds us not to judge a person, especially the shy, quiet ones, who may not be so reserved after all.
…This story reminds us of an old saying: “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Gerald and Stephan need to heed this advice, just as we all do. Don’t change something that works; just go with it.
