Book Info

Released: January 17, 2012
Series: Sam & Cody #1
Pages: 41


WANT was such a satisfying read. I always love reading Ann’s writing. Eloquent and easy-to-read, she makes her books so easy to devour.

Construction foreman Cody McPherson has always had a thing for Sam Denham, but has done nothing about it. Until now…

When he finds out that Sam has signed up for a dating service looking for a man that fits his description, Cody takes this as a sign and opportunity to make his move.As they are paired up on this blind date, Sam soon realizes that Cody is exactly the kind of guy he is looking for.

WANT is a scorching hot read that will make your toes curl and require another change of panties! If you’re looking for a hot quickie, then you can definitely rely on Ann Mayburn to give you the heat you are looking for.

I only felt that the epilogue was a bit rushed towards the end, but overall, this book gets two thumbs up from me because of the bond between Sam and Cody. A very sweet read.

About Ann Mayburn

Ann is Queen of the Castle to her wonderful husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she's been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead(though she will deny to her children that it ever happened).

From a young age she's been fascinated by myths and fairytales, and the romance that often was the center of the story. As Ann grew older and her hormones kicked in, she discovered trashy romance novels. Great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she's never looked back.

Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her 'sexy space' and has learned to type one handed while soothing a cranky baby.

Thanks for the heads up on this one Ann it sounds good!

I’m a little weary of this book, though it sounds great. I’ve never read M/M Romance of ANY kind, which explains my hesitance *.* Great review though 🙂

I love the cover! That look is so intense! I have seen many of Ann’s books, but just haven’t gotten any yet. I will be changing that today!

Thank you for the lovely review! I’m so glad you enjoyed it, I’ve always had a soft spot(or would that be a hot spot) for ‘gay for you’ stories. The idea of loving someone so much that gender isn’t an issue is, to me, very romantic.

Neyra- I’d actually recommend this as a good ‘first M/M’ read. There isn’t any ‘we hate women’ or anything like that, the story is short and sweet with an HEA, and the guys are hot. 😉

Mel- I hope you enjoy it!

Hope you enjoy it, Timitra!

Neyra, I actually just rec’d this book to a friend who has never read M/M romance before. This is only 40 or so, so I think it’s a good intro into it. Gives you a little taste of what it’s like 🙂

Hey Mel, I hope you get the chance to try Ann’s stuff. It’s really great!

Hi Ann! Thanks for stopping by! I love m/m stories so I hope you keep writing them.

Not only is Ann a wonderful and creative writer, I know for sure she is also a really great lady in person. She real life story of ‘taking the bull by the horns and just WRITING!’ inspires me, and her writing never, ever fails to entertain.

Hope you ladies love this story (or any of Ann’s other Decadent Publishing work! It’s not all m/m!).

Yes, I agree. Ann is great and last night I read The Breaker’s Concubine. Hawt.
