    One thought on “In the Pines”

    1. Dammit, I wanted more of the song title referenced. I suppose that wasn't the best reason to buy this Also, this isn't gun kink imo. It's a short, erotic fantasy that features a gun. Well, it was entertaining regardless. It became very engaging as the plot progressed. Good characterization.

    2. Review posted at The Armchair Reader.4.5 starsThis dark and finely crafted mini mystery had me falling for everything I was set up to, and then marveling at the turn the story took and the way it artfully came together.The story opens as Tyler studies the different variety of guns available at a shop in Anchorage, Alaska. He's looking for a gift for his brother, soon to come home from Iraq. He himself is new to the area; six months previously he was shot in the line of work as a NYC police offic [...]

    3. Reviewed under Weight of a Gun anthology. 3.5A psychological drama about a very special gun with a very special power. Tyler is a dried up husk of a man, a cop forced to desk work because of an on the job injury. He purchases a Browning revolver that catches his eye and eventually develops a connection with the gun that renews his passion for life and fulfills his deepest sexual fantasies. Imagine the gun as the other MC here and see how Tyler takes this obsession to a new level. I didn't really [...]

    4. I feel I have to qualify my review before I even start it. I am not generally a fan of books that don't have a HEA or at least a HFN.

I was not looking forward to reading this and in the end can not say I enjoyed it per se.That being said it is very well written and is an interesting concept. I can't say I liked the ending but it was fitting for the tone of the story. Tyler Maxwell left NY an [...]

    5. 4.5 starsWow! For a short story, In the Pines really packed a lot of punch! Between the mystery of the gun’s past, the curse behind it, and the intriguing and sensual Flynn, this short story kept me enthralled with it from the first page to the last word. I loved the determination Tyler had to solve the many questions about the gun’s dark history. Since his accident, he’s been existing and just going through the motions of life, but once Tyler purchases the gun, and starts dreaming about t [...]

    6. Story originally available in Weight of a Gun AnthologyAt first, the story feels intriguing -- when Tyler purchases a Browning gun that is said to be cursed, and all the people who buy it committed suicide. Then, it feels sexy -- when Tyler starts to have sexual dreams about a guy named Flynn. Then, it turns sinister -- when Tyler realizes what is going on and finds out what really happens with the gun. For a short paranormal story, the ending is bittersweet, but totally fits the tone. It is lik [...]
