ARC Review: Pumpkin Rolls and Porn Sounds by Kris T. Bethke

Pumpkin Rolls and Porn Sounds - Kris T. Bethke

4 stars for sheer cuteness!!

This was a super fluffy, super sweet, super fun little novella, and just what I needed.

Will Grant, gay, a bit of a twink, shorter than most at 5'6" or so, is attending a local PFLAG group meeting where he is introduced to Joshua Rhinehardt, who's giving a speech at the meeting. Tall, hairy, meaty Joshua is someone Will would not usually look at twice.

But the voice, OMG. Will is intrigued, can't get Joshua out of his mind, and ends up at Joshua's bakery to taste the famous Pumpkin rolls. Which is where the porny sounds come in.

The two seem entirely mismatched, but love is love, and I fell for them both as the story progressed. Will, from whose 1st person POV the book is written, knows exactly what he wants. Joshua wants Will too, but seems to think that his appearance is not what Will would call attractive.

Well... he's wrong.

I loved how the author allowed Will to recognize Joshua's fears, and how he was patient while Joshua figured things out. And also kind and supportive, open and honest. Will sort of knew he had to get Joshua to open up, to voice the fears, to talk about them honestly. To be assured of Will's feelings. Will also was quite self-aware, knew his assets and shortcomings. And he wasn't afraid to take a plunge.

Joshua, too, was a great character. He knew what he wanted, he was out and proud, but also didn't think much of himself. It appeared as if he'd been really hurt in the past, even though that wasn't mentioned. He was at once hot for Will but also in disbelief that someone like Will could want him. His insecurities kept him from believing in the relationship for a while, and toward the ending, it kind of bothered me a little bit that he would keep harping on that one thing, when everything else seemed to work for them both.

Then again, it perhaps helped Will to understand that words are just words, and actions speak louder.

One scene had me laughing out loud at Will's obliviousness, but it also served as a catalyst for the two men to have a heart to heart about their relationship.

There were some giggly moments in this novel, and some hot boyloving, and this book was the perfect antidote for the winter blahs. Well done, new-to-me author!

Recommended!
