I enjoyed this book as the stories reminded me of the spooky anthologies I used to read, at a totally inappropriate age, but these have sizzling sex to go with the terrifying tale.
These stories are as sexily hot as they are chillingly creepy.

Creatures raised from the dead, a cephalopod seeking a mate, demons, these are just some of the beings our heroes face.

If you’re looking for rescues or HEAs, you won’t find them here. But if you want something dark and erotic, you’ll found the place to look…if you dare.

When glass artist Marco Ravel is commissioned to create a piece for a rich recluse, he’s thrilled for the opportunity to stretch his creative muscle. He doesn’t expect to fall for the man hiring him. For Henrik Schweitzer, the relationship blossoming between himself and Marco shakes his world to its foundation. He wants to keep what the two of them have together, but after eight years of near-complete solitude he doesn’t know if he has what it takes to change. Marco and Henrik both know they can have something special, if they can conquer the mountain of fears in their path.


I’m going to be honest here. Isn’t that what we’re supposed to be? I haven’t read an Ally Blue book in oh, almost two years. Not because I don’t like her stories, it’s just because I have so many books to read and due to that I have been missing the stories written by one of the MM writers who brought me over to this side of the Genre. SAD!

The Mountain is not one of angst, as Ally is known for; instead it’s one of love. It’s about how two men met, in a very unusual but very realistic way and fell in love. It’s about how no matter what circumstances can stand in the way of love of two lonely people win out. How to overcome the obstacles and work through them as a team, no matter how badly the individuals within the story think they know everything about themselves. It’s about pushing boundaries regardless of how scary that may be.

Personally I could not imagine never leaving my home for eight years, yet one of the M.C.’s in this story suffers from a condition known as agoraphobia and the only time he truly “leaves” his home, or mansion as it is referred to, is to run within the boundaries of the land he owns. He shares his home with his cousin and she’s a hoot. She is actually the lovely lady who pushes Henrik, the very wealthy businessman that he is, to try to go out, to try to head to the town with her as they live in the mountains far from civilization. No matter how much he loves and respects his cousin-business partner, he can’t do it. He actually has horrible panic attacks.

Then one day his cousin meets Marco, who is a glass blower and she buys a vase from him. One thing leads to another and Marco ends up at the mansion to design a chandelier for Henrik.

I won’t go into much more, as you really should read it. The story is about a real condition that many people suffer from and the fact that Ally took this sickness and created two lovely men to work through it along with other personal life issues, was a job well done.
