    *** 3 discovering stars ***This was literally a narrated porn scene, but with a touch of romance. However small and unrealistic perhaps, but I liked it. ---------------------------We've never spoken two words before this night.He didn't say anything.He didn't need to.I knew.His eyes told me everything.---------------------------A short story in the collection "Don't Read in the Closet, Volume Four" from the MM Romance Group Hot Summer Event 2011.

    4.25* Hot , very sexy ménage story about three horny young guys that still manages to be quite sweet and romantic at the end, although I did feel a bit sorry for Darrin because I wasn't totally sure how we were meant to feel about his final reaction so I felt a bit sad for him. However its definitely one of those one where youREALLYfeel the sizzle between the three of them and for such a short story that's not always easy to do. Really enjoyed this one. Another title I'd forgotten but memorable once I got into the story.

    I think I didn't pay close enough attention to Amy's review when she said it was "unbelievably hot". I tried reading this at work during a lunch break and the results were not good. LOLThis is an extremely HOT and very sweet short story. Not recommended for lunchtime reading though unless you work from home! ;)

    Cute story about 3 teens - boy 1 has a crush on boy 2, boy 2 is messing around with boy 3. They invite boy 1 to join them at an abandoned beach house where boy 1 discovers he really has feelings for boy 3 instead. It was short, sexy, then sweet.

    Totally not my thing--I don't like teenager stories nor threesomes--but this was really hot. 2.5 for the story, 4.5 for the sex = 3.5. Rounded up to 4 because I've read it more than once and I never do that.

    So good! But now I want more of Sam & Marco's story, and I definitely want to see that look of sadness disappear from Darrin's eyes.

    3.5 starsElizabeth - if that's what you come up with when you're under pressure/time constraint, I definitely want to read more of your writing! This story fits the photo perfectly, starts in one direction but ends in a totally different direction. It was hot, sweet and poignant. I loved the way Sam and Marco came together, but I pity Darrin as he knew what he'd be losing when he invited Marco to join them. Thank you so much for writing this story!P.S. Perhaps you could write some more about Sam & Marco going to college together, while giving Darrin his own happy ending that he deserves?

    This was a really cool story about three young guys who decide to get together at a deserted beach house. I liked the way Marco was slowly pulled into what Sam and Darrin already had going. The sadness of Darrin leaving at the end of the summer was poignant, and Sam's sweet longing for Marco was clear. As with many three-way relatinships that are merely physical, the implications of what the future will bring hung heavily over this one. I definitely want to see more of these characters! It feels as if there are quite a few unresolved questions between them. The focus on the now, and the hot sex, was what I liked and what made me hope for more in the future.

    √I really liked this...I want more. I feel like this was a great start to a really good love story. The ending was so much sweeter than I expected. The turn of events left me smiling in wonder. I want to know how Marco and Sam's relationship plays out. I'm also curious about Darrin...Is he in love with Sam? Was that the sadness in his gaze? And how will this new intimacy between his lover and Marco affect him? Great character development.I guess, while a little frustrating for me, it say's a lot about a book that leaves you wanting so much more...

    I truely liked the story or the plot of it. Of a boy who is determined to make the other boy notice him and in a story that I felt was way too freaking fast, she made me feel the emotion. I just felt like I wasn't fully grasping the whole story and that was because it was fast however I have to give it a four star just because of the how well the author wrote the emotional play.

    Very interesting twist to the story! I'm glad that Darrin was decent enough to invite Marco to the "party" for Sam's benefit even though he had to have known Sam's feelings. I'd love to read more about these guys with happy endings all around:) Great job, Elizabeth - loved it!!!

    I like the story until the end. The flip/flop kind of ruined it for me. It's a good read and the ending might not affect someone else the way it affected me.

    Sweet and sexy young love. An unexpected invitation leads to a couple discoveries. Good character development in a short time with a well defined scene and resolution.

    I don't really remember what this book was about, though I think it had some menage going on and that it happened at a beach house . . .?(I checked the tags, and indeed it does have the tag 'menage' and that's probably why I gave it the one star among other reasons that I don't remember as I'm not the biggest fan of menage.)

    Well, it is my fault for not reading the tags. I am not really into Ménages. But this was a pretty decent quick fun read. It involves a love triangle. (view spoiler)[ Poor Darrin. He ended up being the third wheel. I would have liked to see more of Sam and Marco's relationship develop, but oh well. (view spoiler)[ (hide spoiler)] (hide spoiler)]

    The Beach House by Elizabeth ListerShort fast enjoyable read.Love to hear more about Marco and Sam and find out what happened and did Darrin have more feeling for Sam then just friends. Why did his eyes seem sad?
