An Unsolicited Review for Sleepless In San Francisco by Ryan Field 

For me, speaking as an author and as a reader, the best reviews always come from readers and from those who weren’t solicited to write the review. For me, an unsolicited review means there’s no hidden agenda with either party involved. In other words, the reviewer isn’t trying to get anything from me, and I’m not trying to get anything from the reviewer. And I like that, and I appreciate that.

With that said, here’s a new review for Sleepless In San Francisco that was completely unexpected and unsolicited. The reviewer was kind enough to let me know about it on Twitter.

It’s a fairly long review, and here are two separate excerpts.

This gay erotic romance is loosely based on Sleepless in Seattle.

This is an erotic retelling of a popular het romance, so it’s not rife with “feels and jitters”

You can read it in full here. I really like the web site, too. They do a nice job with everything there, and it’s simple to navigate. 

Hockey Star Brock Weston Comes Out As Gay

Here’s another story about someone coming out as gay in the world of sports. This time it’s college hockey player, Brock Weston. And his story is a little more emotional than others. For many guys it happens this way. 

“I was so upset after going out one night that I threw my phone at the wall, punched a hole in my door and was bawling uncontrollably. I knew I could not live like that any longer.”

Here’s the link. He gets into the homophobic locker room talk and some of the other things he’s had to hear over the years. We all know what that’s like. But things are changing. 

“A wonderful story that I loved. The characters were well developed, and strong. Gus: A sweet young man. Doing something for all the wrong reasons. Craig: his boyfriend, he’ll go along with anything Gus say. Henry: Gus father a no nonsense man, who’s husband died last year. I enjoyed this story.”

What readers said about “Altered Parts”
“Best Gay Novel In Years. This story will stay with you and you will feel you know every character and the beauty of their home in the mountains of North Carolina.”

Altered Parts by [Field, Ryan]

While the book is easily readable, it also addresses emotions stereotypes and relationships. I would have preferred it be 3 times as long and tragically most guys don’t find happy endings as depicted.. but in a short book, it provides food for thought, clarity and insight.. far more and better expressed than 99% of gay fiction . I don’t think it could have been done better.
