Seedy Business (HardCell, #0.5) - Damon Suede Very creative storytelling and characterization. In terms of the "I liked it" aspect of romance ratings, I'd probably give it more of a 3-3.5 because I did like the romance - just did not "really like" or "love" it. The unique world, the strong characters, and the inner torment of the not-so-nice-guy (and not-so-gay -- or so he thinks) narrator that the author fit into a ~40 page story, though, are mighty impressive.
