A Sunday Kind Of Love - Charley Descoteaux Skips a few beats.I like this story, but there are a couple of places that the details are vague enough that you feel liked you missed something--just sorta skips over bits and settles again. I understand alluding to things and letting the reader draw conclusions, but this happened a few times and it wasn't a liberating experience, but rather felt like the author abandoned me and kept on going. Catching up wasn't hard, but rather annoying.Ignoring that, the scenes between--great. I liked the characterizations and the settings. I liked Jake and Jacob and Mason and Antonio; I'd like them more if there weren't fuzzy spots. It's a short story so there isn't a lot of time and things get resolved quickly which works out pretty well.Recommended to Noir aficionados. Favorite quote:Instead of closing his eyes and thinking about JR, the way he had during every second of sex he'd had for the past fifteen years, he stayed in the moment, with Mason.~~ A copy was provided to me for a No Glitter Blown review~~Reviewed for Hearts On Fire Reviews
