Dancing Dirty by Ryan Field


Title: Dancing Dirty
Author: Ryan Field

Characters: Junior, Carlo
Pages: 197
POV: 3rd person
Setting: Pennsylvania, 1978
Sub-Genre: Romance
Book Cover Rating: 5
Kisses: 5


Blurb:

It’s the summer of 1978, it’s the middle of the disco era, and dancing is one of the hottest trends. But eighteen year old Junior has never seen the inside of a gay bar or danced with another man. His mother and father think he’s just shy about meeting girls and that he’ll grow out of it. His little sister drives him insane with her constant invisible companion, a talking dog named Elmer. All Junior cares about is meeting the right man and falling in love.

But when his parents buy a summer home in an exclusive resort community in the mountains of northeastern Pennsylvania, his prospects of finding love don’t look too promising. His first day there he meets an aggressive, abrasive young woman who isn’t the least bit shy about letting him know she wants to get to know him better. And the more he ignores her, the more she chases after him.

While his mother and father are enjoying all the amenities of the resort, and his sister is flirting with one of the waiters, Junior mopes around watching everyone else have fun. That is until he meets a handsome young dance instructor named Carlo who changes his life in ways he’d never dreamed were possible.

From the minute Junior lays eyes on Carlo, he knows he’s in love. And in order to prove his love, he’s willing to make personal sacrifices that no one else has ever been willing to make for Carlo…

Review:

A new and interesting take on the ever popular Dirty Dancing, Ryan Field brings to us his intake of the gyro grinding dancing flick that made Patrick Swayze a star overnight. In this rendition we are introduced to Carlo, a dance instructor who is works hard to make a living by teaching the rich class of people how to dance at a resort in Pennsylvania.

Dr. Edgar hasn’t had a summer vacation in more than twenty years and recently bought a thousand square foot home in a sub-division known as Pocono Mountain Farms. Dr. Edgar takes his family for the summer to relax. And because he saved the life of the developer Mr. Ben Timberlake he was given the first years community associations fees for free.
Junior has a little sister, her name is Laney and she has this black haired, blue eyed, pointed ear mongrel dog, she calls Elmer, and he’s invisible. Junior’s mom is a stay at home homemaker. There, so the layout is done, introductions are made.

This story takes place in the late seventies and back in that era one didn’t need to concern themselves with condoms and such, because anything passed during sexual relations could be cured by the doctors. So, I want to get the usage of condoms out of the way, as in this story, they aren’t used between the two main characters. Then I want to address the secondary characters. Juniors sister is a hoot at just sixteen. She is very much like the secondary character in the movie version, and when she gets to going about her dog, you can’t help but to smile and adore them both. Valerie Timberlake—oh she’s a character that one. Then there’s Gary. Gary is the one who is that go between guy who knows Carlo and the other dancers as well as Junior. He is the one who introduced the two. Then we have Carol’s leading lady on the dance floor.

Ryan did a wonderful job adapting this story over for his fans. The characters are easy to like and easy to not like. I loved hating Valerie. I loved loving Elmer and for someone who is invisible with no dialogue, that in itself was an experience. The plot sticks close to Dirty Dancing, the sex scenes…YUM…MEE…I love how Ryan takes you into the privacy of his characters sex lives. And he even kept the classic line: “No one sticks Junior in the corner.”

The Virgin Billionaire by Ryan Field


Title: The Virgin Billionaire
Author: Ryan Field
Publisher: Ravenous Romance
Pages: 177
Characters: Luis Fortune, Jace Nicholas
POV: 3rd
Setting: Manhattan
Sub-Genre: Contemporary Romance
Book Cover Rating: 4
Kisses: 5




Blurb:

Luis Fortune spends his nights escorting affluent older gentleman to parties, nightclubs and restaurants. And though he’s not officially a rent boy because there’s never any physical contact, he is paid well. He charms them with his looks and his carefree attitude. He makes them smile by laughing at their jokes and listening to their dull stories. But Luis is only doing this temporarily, until the right older man asks him to settle down. He’s looking for something he can depend on, and until he finds it he won’t even give the stray dog that followed him home a name.

While Luis is searching for money and security, he takes comfort in reading a blog written by a woman in France he’s never met, Elena’s Romantic Treasures and Tidbits. She adores gay men and romance, and she posts artistic photos, wonderful stories, and endearing posts about gay men that bring Luis a sense of comfort and security on his darkest, scariest days.

Jase Nicholas is a forty year old high-profile billionaire who can pass for thirty. He’s spent the first half of his life running from the fact that he’s gay. And now he wants to find out what he’s been missing all those years. So he tells his family and friends he’s going on a pilgrimage for a couple of months, and then he drops out of sight so he can come to terms with his sexuality and finally lose his gay virginity. But instead of going on a pilgrimage, he rents a small apartment on Manhattan’s Upper West Side. He changes his appearance and plunges into a world of young gay men. And when one of the young men he meets is Luis Fortune, his life is never the same again…

Review:

A year ago this book was released. It took me a whole year to get to it and for that I’m sad. But there’s one good thing about it…Ryan Field has released four more in this series and now I don’t have to wait to read them.

The break out book, The Virgin Billionaire is about 40 year old Jase Nicholas and Luis Fortune, a twenty something escort who “dates” older men for money. Jase is a man who has literally been stuck in his own world of creation and making more money than he’ll ever need from his inventions. When he turns the big 40 he finally realizes how life is passing him by and he hasn’t live it yet. So he arranges to live in the city, incognito by ridding his face of his long beard and cutting his hair, and telling no one who he is. No one but a close friend who brings him money on almost a daily basis that is.

Jase moves into an apartment building in Manhattan’s upper west side where he meets Jase and immediately finds himself attracted to the younger man.

Luis is a free spirited young man who knows what he wants from life, and he knows how to get it, he just needs to land the right older man who will take care of him in exchange for companionship. Age matters not to Luis. He often dates an older man who pays him $500.00 for his used socks and every Friday he receives this amount when he accompanies the man to real estate showings and thinks nothing of it.

Luis befriends Jase almost at once, often times treating him like a long time friend, often sharing things with him he had never done with anyone else, he even walks around damn near naked making life almost impossible for Jase to be around the younger man and not be in a constant state of hardness.

However, the two men each have secrets they hide from one another and those secrets can destroy even the most solid of friendships. Friends come and go to shake things up as well and there’s a dog that Luis has and calls just doggie because he is afraid to name the little one because he has this fear that nothing is a for sure stable thing, including that little dog who, by the way, will make his way into your heart while reading this story.

There are some funny parts in this story, for example Jase’s driving skills. I read those parts and laughed out loud. Then we have Jase and his almost happy go lucky no worries attitude to whatever is going on and I even had a giggle or two for the usage of the fire escape between these two.

The plot, the story telling, the characters, dialogue, and the setting are all done in Ryan’s classic pattern. He keeps things moving forward, the conversations between the characters real and easy to follow, the narrative not over done. All in all I really liked spending my time with them and can’t wait to get to the next one.

Big, Bad, and On Top by Ryan Field


Title: Big, Bad, and On Top
Author: Ryan Field
Publisher: Ravenous Romance
Pages: 191
Characters: Duke, Jaime
Setting: Contemporary
POV: 3rd
Book Cover Rating: 4
Kisses: 5




Blurb:

Duke’s driven by his ambition to be the best fighter pilot in the Navy, not the fact that he’s a closeted gay man. But he’s garnered a reputation for being overly aggressive and far too impulsive. He likes to think the chances he takes are heroic and wise, but there are many in the Navy who think he’s reckless and irresponsible.

And when the Navy sends Duke to the most rigorous flight class in the world, he becomes even more aggressive in order to be the big, bad “top gun” everyone expects him to be. But while he’s working hard to be number one, he meets an attractive young civilian flight instructor named Jaime who turns his entire life upside down. Though it starts out as a harmless flirtation, their connection becomes so intense Duke begins to wonder whether or not he can continue to abide by the rules of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell.

After a serious accident that leaves Duke so devastated he can barely fly a plane, Duke begins to question his goals, his ferocious need to be number one, and his unyielding devotion to a military that refuses to treat him with dignity and equality. He realizes the only good thing that has ever happened to him was falling in love with Jaime, and he discovers he has two choices. Both have the potential to change his and Jaime’s lives forever, and both come with serious consequences. But he can only choose one. And even while Duke is wrestling with the biggest decision of his life, his passion for Jaime burns hotter than ever.

Review:

You’ve lost that lovin’ feeling,
Whoa, that lovin’ feeling,
You’ve lost that lovin’ feeling,
Now it’s gone…gone…gone…wooooooh.

Okay, sorry. I could not resist. But this song ran through my head the whole time I read this novel by Ryan Field. He did such a wonderful job capturing the thoughts of Duke and though the story is told through his POV, in the 3rd person, he captured the other characters wonderfully!

Duke is a Navy fighter pilot; his life goal is to be the best of the best. He’s aggressive, he’s at times dangerous, he has an issue with following rules, and he’s kept in the closet about his sexuality due to the DADT law. He, along with his flight partner Hinky, is sent to Miramar air force base, the top flight school in the world, to continue with their lessons and to climb higher then ever.

Remember my attempt at singing up there ^ well, after a particularly rough day at flight school Duke and Hinky along with other members of the base head to a bar for some down time, I had visions of the movie come back to me. I could see Duke and Hinky singing, but not to a woman, but to this cute little hot guy named Jamie. Well, Duke, remember I said was very aggressive, managed to catch Jamie’s interest and they met in the restroom to discuss things, only Jesse wasn’t as easy as all that and it was that instant that I knew Jamie was going to be the one to tame Duke.

The students in this training school are put through vigorous training, all of them pushed to be the best in the class, and Duke rises to that challenge. Or he tries to but he’s a hot head with his own agenda, and oftentimes that is his own downfall, often bringing second place. Duke and Hinky are an amazing team, but this story is centered around Duke and his inner turmoil’s, his missing presumed to be dead father, his need to be the best, and his love for his flight instructor.

We’ve all seen the movie this tale is based on, we know there is a part that breaks your heart, brings a tear or two, a sad smile and so we know to expect it in the book, too. Duke is faced with a dilemma at this point, one that may not see him in the air again.

I can not give Ryan enough praise for capturing Duke as he did. The narrative, the detail, the inner weaknesses, and strengths of this pilot are done with precise accuracy. I completely enjoyed my time with Duke and his friends, and I adored, the only man who was capable of opening Duke’s eyes to not only the dangers of the way he flew but also of sending an amazing message about the DADT law. With this one sentence Duke says it all.

“So it is with deep regret I can’t accept this plaque, nor can I support an institution that refuses to support equal rights for everyone in America.”

AMEN!!

Blurb:

Alec has a week to close a big takeover deal or lose his job, so when the buyer, Brant Linton, heads off to a tropical island for the holidays, Alec has no choice but to follow. But Brant’s sister has forbidden any business during the trip and Alec is forced to pretend he’s Brant’s boyfriend. Until business turns pleasurable in EM Lynley’s THE CHRISTMAS BONUS.

Best-selling author Ryan Field brings back Lance and Nathan, two high school lovers who reunited on Christmas Eve, as they now explore their new relationship a year later and find the true meaning of Christmas in THE CHRISTMAS GIFT.

And finally join Aaron and John, the military pilot and doctor from Chloe Stowe’s FOREVER BOUND, as they dance through another holiday of “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell,” in FOREVER BOUND WITH TINSEL.

Review:

I was asked to review one story out of the three included with this anthology and ended up reading two of them.

The first one written by EM Lynley, The Christmas Bonus, is a story about 2 very big corporal business men who live their lives around their jobs. Brant owns his own business and Alec is the man who is trying to land a deal that will ensure his position with his company. However, things aren’t as easy as all that. Alec does his very best to get the wealthy business owner to sign on the dotted line and he’ll do whatever it takes to see that done. Brant makes Alec work hard for that signature and when he leaves town for the holidays with the contract unsigned, Alec takes action and does what he needs to do so he can save his job.

The author did a great job with building the characters, and setting. The plot was interesting with the added dash of angst. I really enjoyed the time I spent with the characters in this story, even the kids added to the plot.

Ryan Field wrote The Christmas Gift. This is a story about two lovers who lost touch for ten years. They were high school secret in the closet lovers from a small town where being gay was frowned upon. After graduation one man is married and has a child, the other moves up in the mountains and opens his own business. Then they meet again and one is now a sheriff and the other still owns his own business and they finally get together. Took a minute to get the sheriff out of the closet so to speak but he does and he goes for the man he loves. It’s a sweet love story and great character development. And the neat part here? The characters are real, true to life with money issues and doubts, and insecurities, just like Real Life people! I think my favorite part was when they wake up in bed with a third party and had no idea how he got there…well…one knew but the other didn’t and it was funny. (no, this is not a ménage) They left the guy in the room.

I truly had a good time with this story and the characters. Ryan never disappoints.

Readers As Consumers: Research Before You Purchase

The other day an author friend told me one of my books was mentioned at the bottom of a review for another book. Unfortunately, it wasn’t a great review for me or the other author, however, there was one part of the review that really bothered me from a practical business POV. Both as a reader and an author. And no, this isn’t a rant about a poor review. This is more consumer oriented and I’m looking at this from an objective reader’s POV, not as a disgruntled author.


Evidently, the person who reviewed this book, and then mentioned my book, makes all his e-book purchases on one large retail web site. I’m not going to mention names of web sites, because I’ve seen this happen in several places and it wouldn’t be fair to single anyone out. And it’s not important who the reviewer was in this case because his review actually turned out to be a very enlightening. One of the comments the reviewer made about my book was that it was only a 30 minute read, but no reader could actually know it was this short unless they bought the book.


I’m not going to mention the book because I’m not here to promote anything right now. But it was one of those short stand alone e-books that has become a very popular format with a lot of authors, publishers, and readers these days. In other words, this was a short story, with a length of just over 5,000 words and a reading time of 15-21 minutes, and it was priced accordingly.


But it seems this reviewer was under the impression the book was longer, in spite of the price. And although I do believe that when someone reviews a book on a professional review site they should know all the information about the book, I can understand why he’d think this. On this particular retail web site where he bought the book, I didn’t notice a word count or an actual reading time. Under the product details, all I saw was a file size. And if a reader is anything like me, a file size means absolutely nothing. Speaking as a reader (and a computer idiot), I know reading time, I know word count, and I know page numbers. But when you get into file sizes and things like KB’s, I go blank. And because I buy most of my e-books on publisher web sites, I never noticed the ambiguity on this particular retail web site.


So I did a little research to see how other web sites display the product details with the e-books they sell. And I found a huge difference. For example, allromanceebooks.com lists a word count very clearly, which for me is the best indicator. And fictionwise.com mentions actual reading time, and then goes on to categorize books as S (short), M (medium), and L (long). No problem there; a huge round of applause for ARe and Fictionwise. There are several others that give these details as well, and most publisher web sites make product details just as clear.


I wrote a short blog post about this earlier in the week, and since then I’ve had several authors contact me and tell me they’ve been experiencing similar situations regarding product details and book lengths (we do take this seriously). Readers have left disgruntled comments in customer reviews of e-books because they felt as though they’ve been cheated. They thought they were buying a full-length book and they wound up with a short story stand alone instead. And from what I’ve seen, I can’t blame the reader if they only shop for e-books on a web site that doesn’t make the details clear. For many readers, remaining with one web site makes them feel safe and comfortable. And they tend to trust larger retail web sites more than smaller sites.


The only solution I see is to try to get the information out there as much as possible so readers know exactly what they are purchasing when they buy an e-book. Frankly, I may even start writing book lengths into the cover copy of my short story stand alones from now on. If web sites don’t want to give out all the product details to idiots like me who don’t know file sizes, I’ll do it myself in my cover copy. This way there isn’t any confusion and no one can say they didn’t know all the facts before they made a purchase. And I also think it’s important to get the word out to readers and let them know that if they have any questions about buying a book, there are places like ARe and Fictionwise where they can get all the information they need. And it only takes minutes to do this. But they have to know, especially the readers who are just getting into e-books and e-readers.


As an author, it really does bother me when a reader spends their hard earned money on a book and winds up disappointed in the length of the book. Or if they feel cheated because they feel they didn’t get enough information before they made the purchase. I’ve owned two small businesses and my first goal with each business was always catering to the consumer. I always felt an obligation to treat the consumer well and give them the best service possible, and as an author I feel this same obligation now.


So please take the time to let your readers know what they are buying. And don’t assume they know anything. And readers, please take the time to research what you are buying. I personally think it’s a great idea to have an accessable e-mail address so readers can actually contact the author with any questions they might have about a book. I post my e-mail on my blog, and you’d be amazed at how many readers will, in fact, ask me questions about a particular book before they make a purchase. One even wanted to know the ending of a book, and I told her. She thanked me and said she wasn’t interested. Which was fine with me. Though sometimes you might even lose the sale of a book because the reader winds up not interested after you’ve answered their questions, I do think the reader will appreciate it and consider buying your next book or story instead.

Blurb:

In this highly erotic story of gay cross-dressing, one young man named Rush learns what it’s like to live out the fantasy of a lifetime with four masculine college football jocks during a wild costume party in a campus frat house. And though Rush is apprehensive at first, hoping that the drunken, stoned football players won’t discover that he’s really another guy, all of his fears are calmed when one of the guys quietly admits, with a huge smile, that he knows Rush is really a guy dressed as a girl.

While the Halloween party is going on upstairs in the frat house, there’s another little party going on down the basement, where a nice-looking, young guy who can pass for a sexy young woman learns how to take care of four athletic guys at the same time without being discovered. Though the story becomes tense at times, and it’s classic gay erotica without apology, there is a very happy ending with strong promise of unexpected love and romance in the future.

Review:

This is the first time I’ve ever read a cross-dressing story. And honestly? I didn’t even read the blurb before I loaded it on my reader. I just saw this name: Ryan Field. So, it was a definite read. The story is short but it packs a punch because Ryan has this knack of fleshing his characters out with short well structured sentences.

This is about Rush, a senior in college who considers himself no different than anyone else he goes to school with…Well other than he has a secret passion for lipstick, earrings and very high heels. Well, he gets the perfect chance to put together the most awesome Halloween outfit ever. One that he has spent years inventing. Rush is five feet, six inches tall, blonde hair, blue eyes, and short sandy brown hair. No one thought he was gay, nor did they know that his passion. But the thought of shaving my entire body to the point where every conceivable inch of skin was smooth and soft, and then putting on a tight corset, black stockings and dangerous stilettos gave me an erection that lasted for hours. Good sex for me was all about dressing up.

Don’t get Rush wrong though, he loves being a man, had no issues with that part, he just loves dressing up. Now, on the night of the party he wasn’t cruising for men, he just wanted to get out and dress like a sexy woman and tease those men with none the wiser. He tanned for a month before the party and he purchased a long blonde wig. The general costume consisted of a black-beaded evening bag, a short black taffeta skirt, a skintight, black lace corset trimmed in silver, a black mask that covered half my face and six-inch black stilettos. Don’t know about you, but to me he sounds gorgeous.

At the party Rush blends right in, well he actually stands out a bit because he’s so sexy and he immediately attracts the attention of a football player. One of those players asks him to go to the basement with him and his three friends to smoke a joint and Rush says why not? So while I’m cringing as I’m reading just knowing something was going to happen to the guy, he’s headed down the stairs with four big football players. Drunk ones, ones that see a lovely sexy woman dressed to the hilt and I was biting my lip shaking my head and mumbling no, they’ll hurt you!

I’m not going to give any more of this away but I will tell you that Ryan Field CAN write some HOT sex! His characters are very well developed, even the football players who only want one thing from the lovely vixen. Rush actually ends up meeting his next partner that night, and let me just say, the young football player loves a man who dresses to the hilt.

Blurb:

In this M/M adaptation of the classic novel, Valley of the Dolls, an innocent young man named Rush Goodwin leaves behind his family, his longtime boyfriend, and the safety of his small New England town to find a new life that’s filled with adventure and excitement in New York City. Though he’s not sure exactly what he wants in life, he’s willing to take a few daring chances along the way to find out. It doesn’t take long for him to make two new best friends, Cody and Anderson, who are just as young an innocent as he is when the story begins. The only difference between them and Rush is that they both have faithful partners and Rush is alone. But that doesn’t last long. When Rush meets his new boss, handsome Lance Sharp, it’s love at first sight and the beginning of a turbulent relationship that is rarely without conflict throughout the rest of the book. While Rush and his friends are all moving forward and climbing their respective ladders of success, they each learn, in different ways, that nothing in life is perfect. Especially not the fame and fortune they thought they all wanted. And in order to deal with the stress of success, they all turn to drugs for comfort. And in time, this leads them all on a downward spiral that ruins their relationships and ultimately threatens their lives. In the end, after suffering painful disappointments and serious setbacks that almost ruin him, Rush learns the true meaning of what life is all about for a gay man of his generation. And he does this without drugs and fame and fortune, with the help of true love and the one goal he never expected he could reach.

Review:

Ryan Field has given a new meaning to the word—Dudes, in this story. He created six powerful characters who made me mad, laugh, and cry. Ryan held nothing back, he let it go and came up with a wonderful story about six friends who meet in their twenties and go through life together.

Valley of the Dudes has two meanings behind the title. Let’s start with the obvious meaning. We have Rush, a young lawyer from a small town who lives with his mom and aunt, and dating the same guy for years. He has a safe boring life and it’s one he’s tired with. He doesn’t love his boyfriend, he isn’t fond of his job, and he’s sick of living with mom and auntie so he applies for a position as a celebrity lawyer in New York and within two weeks he leaves his old life behind to start anew.
In his new position as a junior lawyer he meets the love of his life, Lance Sharp who is that and then some. He’s Rush’s boss, he’s successful, and hot as hell. He’s also a player and a few times throughout the story I wanted to slap him. While on a mission for the big boss, Rush meets an adorable Cody who has a voice that captivates Rush. Turns out that Cody lives in the same apartment building Rush does, so later that night they bump into one another and Cody talks Rush into going to watch him perform on stage at a night club with a friend of his. This is where Rush meets the very amazing, Roy.

Now, Roy is Cody’s boyfriend. He’s drop dead model gorgeous and he loves Cody to pieces. He’s all about taking care of Cody’s every need and he loves every minute of it. On stage with Cody is Joey and Joey’s boyfriend is Anderson. Roy is a music teacher, Anderson is a model, Cody and Joey are performers, and Lance is their lawyer, agent.

Overnight Joey and Cody are turned into stars. One with a singing contract and the other with a TV show contract. They all relocate to California to begin their new lives, leaving Lance and Rush behind. During a meeting Rush gets news that has him rushing back to the small town he left not long ago and Lance shows up. I was all happy thinking good for Rush, he gets his man. Well, after a week together Lance gives Rush that I’m not the type to settle down with one guy line. He breaks Rush’s heart. (Slap One)

Over in California Joey and Anderson are doing well, the TV show is a hit they buy a house and live the American dream. Across town we have a very bratty Cody and Roy. Cody has discovered partying and he loves it. He quickly grows addicted to drugs, drinking, and dudes.

Here is where the other meaning of dudes comes to play. Ryan Field should have a pat on the back for this one. Dudes are actually uppers I think. Pills. Cody grows addicted to them overnight and before we know it, Roy is at his wits end with his bratty lover. Cody actually had the nerve to make out with two other men in his own pool in front of Roy! Needless to say, Roy leaves that brat and I was cheering him on but I knew how much he loved Cody so it was sad at the same time. Cody ends up with a deep in the closet case controlling bastard. HA! And he almost kills himself, but does he ever grow up?

Ryan brings us back to New York to visit Rush again, and low and behold that cutie lands a job as an underwear model, to start that is. Eventually he becomes a world famous model, known all over and also addicted to drugs. I think it’s like five years later that he sees Lance again and yep they end up together again. This time for an unknown amount of time and they were truly happy. Or so I thought. That is until Lance goes off to New York with that brat Cody. (Slap Two)

Back to Cali to see the beginning to the end of Joey and Anderson. Something so terribly wrong happens here that I cried. No where else did I cry in the story but here. I wanted to slap Ryan. I can’t even talk about it without getting misty eyes so I’m not gonna.

I don’t know how many years pass throughout the story, I lost track but we are taken on a hell of a journey with these men. There is so much that happens but the two that remain the strongest with me is Joey and Anderson. They are my favorites. Cody is a brat and let me just say that he’d better behave himself from here on out. He’s lucky the man who never stopped loving him took him back. And Lance and Rush?

I’m not sharing that either. Why give everything away? You’ll just have to read the book. Ryan did a wonderful job with character development here I am so totally impressed. I haven’t stopped thinking about these six men and I finished the story days ago. Sex? Oh yes, there’s sex. This is Ryan Field! He’s amazing on all levels.
