The Encounter (MM) by Jacey Holbrand (Published by: Evernight Publishing)
$3.99
Categories: Alternative (M/M, Gay), May-December, Paranormal

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

This was an impulse buy, and I have to admit I wasn't disappointed. Well, except that I would've liked it to be longer. *grins* It started out at a brisk pace, and I'm pretty appreciative of that. Zen is a forty year old, ex-Marine who is a highly regarded field agent at The Agency. This particular business investigates all things paranormal, and supernatural, i.e. UFO sightings, hauntings, shifters, etc. Basically, right up my alley and I'd totally work there. His latest assistant field agent turns out to be Seth, the nephew of an ex-boyfriend, and high up at The Agency. Uh. Oh. Seth has never gotten over his desire for Zen, but he took this job partially to deal with information his uncle gave him, and to get over his crush. Unbeknownst to Seth, Zen had not been immune to him all those years ago, but Seth had been a minor, and when Zen's relationship with the uncle ended, so did his time spent with Seth. But, when Seth discovered why Zen disappeared from his life, and the reason he started working at The Agency, a lot of things become clear. I enjoyed this short story, although Zen's memories of his alien abduction were just way too predictable for me. Because of its length I think the author missed out on some more character development, although the next book involves the same characters, so perhaps I'll get more. BUY

Cooper's Condition (MM) by Jacey Holbrand (Published by: Evernight Publishing)
$3.99
Categories: Alternative (M/M, Gay), Paranormal, Science Fiction

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

Seth decides to start an Alien Encounters support group which Zen, and their boss, Owen, isn't too thrilled with. At the first meeting, Seth meets Cooper, and wouldn't you know it? Cooper and his partner, Micha's situation mimics Seth and Zen's. Huh. Who'da thunk it?? *grins* I got kind of disappointed with the author after Cooper relayed his whole story to Seth, and then showed up in the middle of the night at Seth and Zen's place in pain. Why? Because Seth didn't recognize the description and the details and realize that Cooper was pregnant. Seriously, dude? You just went through this. Duh. Even though there were a lot of inconsistencies throughout this story, I still had fun with it, and I guess that's all I could ask for. BUY

Breeding Seth (MM) by Jacey Holbrand (Published by: Evernight Publishing)
$2.99
Categories: Alternative (M/M, Gay), Science Fiction, Short Stories

This reviewer's rating: 3 - Average

Again, this is a short story which I would've wished to be longer as I still think there's more to these characters than what's been seen. But, again, I enjoyed this, particularly since the mpreg made itself known. The fact that the pregnancy is due to Seth now being abducted by the same aliens did give me a little eye roll. But, since I wasn't into this for a Tolstoy-like novel....more like dime store candy....I went with the plot. The birthing part was just as entertaining as they always are for me in mpreg. Seth and Zen were cute and naming the baby Star just made me think of the 80's series 'V'....oh well, funny and entertaining isn't a bad thing for a story. BUY
