Giving Thanks got 4.5 Bookmarks from Wild on Books!

Jennifer Ray from Wild on Books has read Giving Thanks and given it 4.5 bookmarks and says (in part):


I have a number of friends who are gay, so reading a story about a man who finally comes out to his family was something that really struck a chord for me. Sure, GIVING THANKS may be a work of fiction, but it had an undeniable chord of truth in it. For many gay men and women, coming out to the people closest to them is unbelievably frightening.

and


This man is all about doing whatever the man he loves needs. Wow. Would that we all had someone like this in our life, eh?

But that isn’t all the story has to offer. The happy ending Maura Anderson delivers in this brief but emotionally rich story involves more than just the two lovers.

Bravo to Maura Anderson for delivering a story that so poignantly depicts a major event in a gay man’s life in such an honest way, but still finding the happy ever after these two princes deserve together.

You can read the entire review on the Wild on Books site!

Erotic Horizon has Recommended Giving Thanks

Erotic Horizon has read Giving Thanks and and recommends it! He says, in part:

GIVING THANKS is all that you would imagine the Thanksgiving holidays should be about. A book full of; secrets, family expectation, love and surprises along with a whole lot of forgiveness.

Derek and Troy are perfect for each other, there is no pretence about the love that they feel for each other and the respect that they have for their family. In wanting to have it all, family, friends and each other they make decisions based on assumptions and almost lose sight of things that are important to them.

The book has not only that hold your breath moment when you think, ‘please let it work out’ but also some hilarious moment where you just have to say thank God for the in-laws. I really enjoy Ms. Anderson’s GIVING THANKS.

You can read the entire review on the Erotic Horizon blog! Thanks for the great review!!!

Elisa Rolle Reviews Giving Thanks!

The lovely Elisa Rolle has reviewed Giving Thanks on her blog and says (in part):

I like the story: it’s nice and tender. Troy and Derek, despite Derek’s reluctance to come out, are a very communicating and supporting couple; Troy never once makes Derek feel wrong for not presenting him as lover to his family, and never once let Derek without his support, even when Derek is stubbornly invading the kitchen with an huge amount of food they can’t possibly eat in two. On the other hand Derek is very comprehensive of Troy’s work, and how it’s very tiring for his lover, and so he tenderly takes care of him in the best way possible: even when he is suffering for his father’s reject, he still finds time to take care of his lover and to be always open and “straight” to their relationship. Derek doesn’t hide to suffer alone, he shares his pain with a gentle smile on his face.

The story is not very long, 51 pages, but it’s a very nice fast reading in the warm atmosphere of the holiday season.
