Review for PRETTY MAN...


As it happens, I've been working on a personal interview for best gay blogs with the book reviewer, Elisa Rolle. She's been reviewing m/m erotic romances for a long time, and I've always respected her work. And, recently, while I was gathering information for the interview I'm doing with her, I came across this review about the ravenous romance publication, PRETTY MAN. I had no idea she'd written this review when I contacted her for an interview (I NEVER solicite reviews for my own work). But I'm glad I found it. And, best of all, she wrote it on my birthday.


Here's the first part, and the last sentence, of the review, verbatim. I should also add that Elisa Rolle is in beautiful Italy, and her reviews are written in English, but with a slight Italian accent. The rest of the review can be found here.


I had in the past the chance to read something by Ryan Field, and his style is like some of the other gay romance authors out there that I believe are in the field way before it became the last trend. Ryan Field is like Bobby Michaels, Gavin Atlas, Nathan James, Thom Jaymes...


A side note to the setting: with fast and nice details the author recreates the atmosphere of New York in a so good way that I almost felt like I was there with them, walking on the street or perusing the shops.

Sometimes it's cool, Angel. And sometimes it's really awful. The internet, as you know, can be a very mean place. I have scars to prove it.

This is why I stopped reading reviews a long time ago. But I found this one about Pretty Man because I was interviewing the reviewer for something else unrelated to my writing. I'm posting the interview here and in a few places, so I hope you get to read about her. She's really cool, and lives in Italy. She's so cool she actually writes her reviews with an Italian accent. I'd love her even if she wrote a bad one about me, and that says something.
