Eric seems like a good guy and very trusting. I can't help but like him, even though I want Brian with Justin... time will tell, I suppose.

I really liked the first chapter, and did see that Brian had changed, and that Justin just wasn't ready for commitment like Brian was. It's sad to read that Brian was with a new man with a child, but also glad he appears to be happy. How funny that Brian tried to say that he didn't know "Frozen", but he really does, LOL.

I’m really loving this story even with B and J with others. You are such a good writer, and it’s a really compelling story. :) I hope you finish it someday, despite some negative feedback. I think the majority absolutely love it, like all your stories. Regarding the chapters so far, Lilly and Duncan are so adorable, and the pet rats too. :) I took a class where we had tame rats, white or tan with spots, and would have them run through short mazes. They were so sweet and intelligent! At the end of the class, they let students take them home as pets. :) I like when Brian and Justin interact in this story, but can’t help but like Eric too. Take care, and I hope you are having a good week!

This is such a good story and I’m hooked on reading it this week. I’m sorry to hear about some of the comments, it’s just fiction after all. I’ve wanted to read this story for some time, especially seeing that it is a series with spinoffs and deleted scenes. I do like B/J together, but I’m glad to see that they could also find happiness elsewhere if they could. I’m going back to reading the story again. :)

Out of boredom, Brian creates a Facebook account. That way he discovers Justin's relationship status and demands answers. They come to a conclusion that makes Michael's head spin.

Loving this story (a re-read). Justin will be a bit suprised when he visits Pittsburgh... LOL Wouldn't you know, Daphne's new friends are also very close friends of Mr. Kinney. :)

Continuation of episode 409 where Brian caves to Justin's influx of arguments pro their relationship, and accepts the chicken soup dutifully.

Fiery Nights by Tagsit, Saje Rated: M half-star [Reviews - 420]
Summary:

Fiery Nights Banner S&T.jpg

Brian Kinney has rented a summer house on Fire Island for his first vacation in years. His plan is to spend the summer experiencing all the various delights - and men - this Gay Mecca has to offer. His first night there, though, he’s confronted by a hot little blond townie with an agenda who refuses to accept Brian’s rule that he doesn’t do repeats. The two men make a bet - If Justin can keep Brian amused and entertained all summer, then Brian will give him a job come fall. Little did Brian know just how determined and inventive Justin really was.

*****STORY IS NOW COMPLETE - ENJOY!*****

OMG, I'm laughing out loud sort of in public again reading your stories... Luckily I'm in my car. When these two have a competition, it's anyone's guess who will win! Poor Brian, hopefully he got all the sand out! Lol



Author's Response:

We are told that laughter is contagious, so you SHOULD do it in public! So glad you are having fun.

Roflmao!!! I have to say that no, I have never read a humorous rimming scene quite like this one, and was marveling at all the inventive synonyms. Hmmm, ideas ideas... How about a scene tied up, either one or the other, fun with the bike somehow (handlebars anyone?), or hot tub adventures? I'll ponder this for my next review. Loving this hilarious story!!

Whew!! Very hot stuff. Brian's misadventures on the beach made me giggle, and the balcony show is something I'd love to be a spectator for! ;) I loved the crowd reactions, and the trick eating the clams was too funny. Food play sounds fun, although I have no doubt the threesomes would be hot, too! Other ideas... Brian surely brought along some toys, I'm sure (beads, dildos). 😀 Brian could host a party, which I'm sure Justin would also enjoy!



Author's Response:

You know what I take away from this review? Compliments, which I thank you for, and TOYS!

Toys are good and coming right up....

What a clever, hilarious story! LOL Fairy Julep/Justin and Brian had a wonderful week, and Mikey was stung by a "bee"... haha!!  (I don't mind Mikey, but he can be annoying at times, even though he usually means well.) I would absolutely adore a sequel, when Brian introduces Justin to his friends. Would Justin retain his special powers or is he back to being a regular human? He is pretty magical all on his own. Great job! :D



Author's Response:

Glad you enjoyed the story.

Brian and Justin's whole story is magical.

Thanks

Brian is a master manipulator and knows what he's doing. He still and always will love Justin, so I think he is guiding people to get rid of Ethan (and to make everyone hate himself). I hope Justin can forgive him after this though.
