In the Blue Moonlight Reviews
** 2 stars **An story about a guy mooing some police officers and ends up (view spoiler)[meeting one of them in a gay club on night. (hide spoiler)] I liked them finding each other, but I didn't like Simon (view spoiler)[saying they shouldn't have sex until Mark outed himself at work.----------------"Well, what if I don't let you come inside until you take the plunge and come out?""Let me get this right." Mark gave Simon a questioning look. "You're going to withhold your sexual favors until I stand up in the station and tell everyone I'm gay?"---------------- (hide spoiler)]I mean, wth?? Despicable. It all works out in the end, but still... what a dick move.Part of the Bollocks! anthology. Read my review here.
In The Blue Moonlight written by H. Lewis-Foster is a short story about a man named Simon who, even as a young man, is set in his ways. Simon was the responsible one who, in the words of his friend Chris, was a “Boring old fart”. That was until one night he, his younger brother, Sean, and Sean’s friends were out having a drink. As they walked out of the pub, Simon blurted out one thing he’d always wanted to do was to moon a policeman.With this being very out of character for Simon, the entire group was completely shocked by the statement for a brief moment but quickly recovered. As each one got a grin on their face, they began encouraging him to do just that. With each one dropping their pants and turning around, Simon’s turn came. Even as he wished he could take the words back, he dropped his trousers, bent over and mooned the policemen that had come walking up behind them. After taking off running while pulling up their pants, laughter ensued and the group got away. Nights later, Simon was dragged out to a gay pub a few towns over where he met up with one of the officers, Mark, that he had mooned. Embarrassed and thinking he was going to be arrested, Simon was fully prepared to end up being locked behind bars. Much to his surprise, Mark ended up joking around then asking him out.In the Blue Moonlight was a very cute, funny and amazing story. I laughed and cheered both the main characters. The twist that the story took from a potential indecent exposure arrest to an HEA was absolutely amazing and the fact that, with the encouragement from Simon, that Mark came out to those he worked for made me almost cry with happiness. Thank you H for sharing the story with us.
Read as part of Bollocks! Anthology.
In the Blue Moonlight is an amusing M/M romp. A very entertaining short story.Disclaimer - I was involved in the editing of this story.

2.5 stars This wasn't bad, it was just a bit dull. Off to a fun and flirty start, things fizzle a bit once Simon and Mark actually start dating. I appreciate the authors attempt to put in a genuine relationship obstacle in order to make it feel more real. But I didn't find Simon's ultimatum playful (view spoiler)[you should never force or coerce anyone into coming out. It would have been fair to say that you don't feel comfortable dating someone who's in the closet, but I didn't like the way it was done (hide spoiler)], and I found Mark's final reveal awkward and anti-climactic. Unfortunately by then I had lost steam, so the sex scene didn't do anything for me (and I actually skimmed it!)Received from the publisher in exchange for an honest review as part of the Bollocks! anthology, reviewed for Hearts On Fire
Original review on Molly LollyFour and a half stars!This book was a fun little short that I couldn’t put down. At roughly 20 pages it’s a fast read but it’s packed with sexy time, insecurities, and coming out of the closet fun. I loved the scene where Simon inadvertently met Mark. Those kinds of shenanigans make for a good laugh. Especially when they meet again later. The ending is more than a HFN but with the couple being so new you can’t really call it a HEA either. I’d love to read more about Simon and Mark but if they never appear again I’m happy with what is given. Now I get the pleasure of reading more by a new author I enjoy.
