    A Hearts On Fire Review3.5 Hearts--Porn with a little plot. ;P"Like what you see?""Fuck yes.""Then show me what I'm going to fuck."That author Schuyler L'Roux brings the heat in his debut erotic short story featuring an ginger haired Welshman in a kilt in "There's Something About a Kilt" who is a total wish fulfillment for a writer just enjoying his ice cream on hot summer's day. Set in Minneapolis, Thom is sitting there sweating but enjoying his sweet treat when a tall, tatted, buzz cut red haired guy in a kilt comes up and flirts. But doesn't get his number because Gerry, the ginger Welshman, is looking for something serious.I don't think Gerry got the memo about the stories premise or that it's basically PWP. But the story gets there fairly quick in a hot one nightstand. You can tell buy the main characters' names, Thom and Gerry, the author has a sense of humor. And this story will be enjoyed most if you have a sense of fun in mind. The story stretched reality here and there, but overall, it is sex filled fun.The dialogue before the boner jams was overall solid. There were parts that I had to reread a few times because the characters would seem to either speed up in conversation or change the topic without giving this reader a heads up. It ends with a possibly HFN, there is definitely more that could be told from this world the author created, hopefully maybe something a little concrete betwixt Thom and Gerry. And I really dug the secondary character Abram's short spot in this book. I like people who don't BS around and get straight to the point. Maybe he could have his own spinoff story?If you're in the mood for contemporary kilts, hot smexing and want something to escape read rather than sink your teeth in, I'd say give this one a try. I would totally read something else from this author. ;)A copy provided for an honest review.

    3.5 bumped up to 4 because they're Thom and Gerry. *snickers*HOT GINGER IN A KILT!!This was fun, short, and hot. Thom and Gerry meet outside an ice cream shop, and though their attraction is mutual and immediate, Gerry doesn't do one night stands.“Gotta go?” asked Thom.“Sad to say,” said Gerry, standing up. “It was fun chatting.”Thom’s heart stammered. He licked his suddenly dry lips. “I know you said you’re busy with work. But if you get out early, I’m going dancing with some friends.” Keeping his eyes on Gerry was near impossible with his heart hammering so hard, but he kept it up. “Can I give you my number?”“I leave tomorrow, Thom.”“Okay.”“And I’m not looking for a fuck and run.”“Who says I am?” Thom asked, more out of reflex than honesty.Gerry placed a hand on his surprisingly slim waist. “You’re saying if I wasn’t down, you wouldn’t mind coming with me and then never again?”Thom couldn’t help the smile that danced over his lips. He leaned back in his chair to look up at Gerry. “I wouldn’t mind coming, sure. But I may very well regret the never coming again part.”Gerry grinned. “Clever boy.”“I try.”Gerry laughed. “You would be fun. But I’m serious. I’m not looking for just anything. I’m looking for…”“Something,” Thom finished for him. Gerry nodded. “I get it,” Thom said, smiling genuinely up at Gerry.“I’ll tell you what, though.”“What’s that?” Thom asked, the rabbit beat of his heart slowing as he got his expectations under control.“If there’s a next time we run into each other, I won’t be such an idiot.”When Gerry does end up meeting Thom again, the sparks fly, and they return to Gerry's hotel room for a passion-filled night.This is a short novelette with some hot sexy times and the hint of a possibility for more. I would have liked to get a little more depth to the characters, but I liked the flow of the story and wasn't disappointed with end result. If you like a sweet, hot, short story with a steamy encounter or two, this one's for you.The nerd in me also LOVES the fact that together they're Thom and Gerry.Advanced Review Galley copy of There’s Something About a Kilt provided by NineStar Press in exchange of an honest review.This review has been cross-posted at Gay Book Reviews.

    I think we can all agree that ..... yes, there is something about a kilt. Or as Damon Suede said so wonderfully in Hot Head: “It's a kilt, dumbass. It's only a skirt if I'm wearing underwear.” AND I can attest that Gerry, the very hot tattooed Welshman in There’s Something About a Kilt is DEFINITELY wearin' a kilt. This short novella, set in Minneapolis, introduces us to Thom, a hot Italian and Gerry, an even hotter Welshman who briefly meet one hot and sticky July day in front of Sebastian Joe's (the best ice cream in the Twin Cities!), then again at The Saloon Bar on the dance floor. They take it back to the Le Meridien for some hot n' steamy sex, with the promise of more to come in an upcoming book. Fun, sexy, and did I mention the kilt? I received an ARC from NineStar Press in exchange for an honest review.Also posted on:

    THIS WAS SO MUCH FUN!I SWOONED AND SQUIRMED AND SWOONED AGAIN!Okay. I’m done yelling at you. Seriously. I can’t believe how fast I was charmed by this book. Everything was fast but fast is good and fast is fun and fast is fooking brilliant.Short story, short review.Thom is taking a break from grading papers and melting in his apartment with broken air conditioning so he goes out for ice cream. He meets my dream man; a ginger wearing a kilt… the right way and the two share a quick chat. Thom invites kilt wearing ginger, aka as Gerry, to a club that night for dancing and whatever else pops up but Gerry has work and isn’t fond of one offs… or is he?I turned the corner this afternoon and found you. And said no. I came in here at random and found you again. I don’t need the universe to give me a third chance.This turns to sex quickly but the sex is hot and I’m good with the sex. But along with the sex, the men do give you a hint of feels, a hint of a connection and a hint of wanting more. It’s the more that I am here for, the sex is just icing on the cake of two dudes finding mutual orgasms.So this was fun. This was ridiculously charming, sexy and apparently the story of Thom and Gerry (come on with those names… am I not supposed to giggle?) is far from over.“Not the end?”“Not even close.”

    What a hot little number this is!! Thom is minding his own business eating ice cream on an awfully hot day. Around the corner walks sex-on-a-stick Gerry. All tatted up, looking adorable, and sizzling dressed in a kilt! Thom can't take his eyes off him! When Gerry stops for ice cream, the two share some cute banter. The attraction is immediate, but Gerry is getting ready to catch a flight out of town. He's not interested in a one and done so they chat a bit more and move on. When they end up meeting again at a nightclub, Gerry believes fate is telling him something and decides to throw caution to the wind! Thom won't know what hit him!!There's Something About a Kilt is a splashy, quick read that's best enjoyed between those long novels! It's spicy hot and you can feel the attraction between Gerry and Thom! There wasn't time for any long info sessions as these two get right to business! I loved it!! This is the first book by Schuyler L'Roux I have read-but it certainly won't be the last! If you are a fan of M/M and hot guys in a kilt-look no further!! Pure yumminess!3.5 stars/4 flamesThis book was gifted to me by the Jeep Diva for the express purpose of an honest review. The rating and review are solely my opinion and in no way was I compensated.

    Ahhhh, Thom and Gerry… one is a hot Italian but a little on the nerdy side, and the other is an off the charts, pure Welshman with ginger hair and a kilt to boot. ::sighs:: Sometimes you’re not looking for the next great epic read; you’re just in the mood for a little pick me up, a hot little short that will leave you satisfied, without the commitment of all those other pages to read. There’s Something About a Kilt is that book. Sexy from start to finish, it is a little crass, a lot of porn, and there is the promise of a HEA. What more could you want in a quickie?If you need a smile, if you are in the mood for two great guys meeting and possibly falling in love, and want some zest with the zing, then There’s Something About a Kilt is the book for you.Reviewed by Carrie for The Novel Approach Reviews

    This was a hot, sexy little read! Thom and Gerry meet at an ice cream shop, but Gerry's not interested in a one night stand (they live in different states) when Thom offers his number. After running into Thom again later that night, Gerry believes it's fate, so they decide to go to Gerry's hotel room. It's nice to know that their story will continue, so this was a strong happy for now.

    Original review on Molly LollyFour stars!This was a decent erotica short. I think if you go in only wanting a hot, short, flirty read with scorching sex then you’re going to love it. However I got invested in the characters and wound up wanting more from these two. The sex is definitely hot and they have some serious escapades that I enjoyed reading. But by the end I was left feeling like there wasn’t enough story for these two. I know! I know! Wanting plot and character development and happy endings from my erotica. I’m such a weird reader but I own my need for those things.I think my favorite part is where emotions are alluded to. Those parts are so well written. You can feel Thom and Gerry’s want for more despite distance and circumstances. There’s a note towards the front that these two aren’t done so I’m hoping the next in the series will have Thom and Gerry headed towards a relationship and we get to see more behind the guys’ motivations. Heck, even the side characters I want to know more about.I did enjoy Mr. L’Roux’s writing style. Even if we never see these characters again, I will be picking up more books by him in the future and keeping an eye out for future releases. I just hope we don’t have to wait too long.

    There's Something About a Kilt by Schuyler L'Roux is a cute short read. I really love kilts! And this one has a very sexy man named Gerry that wears one very well indeed.I also love the word play in this story. Gave me a chuckle. Like Thom and Gerry, references to me the cartoon I enjoyed as a kid. I love that kind of smart word play.Thom is just eating some ice cream at his favorite shop when he meets Gerry. He is a teacher and just chilling out. I liked his laid back attitude. He is a kind sweet sort of fellow.Gerry is a business man between meetings. He never expected to find someone like Thom at an ice cream shop. Neither men want one night stands, but Gerry is just here for business.One ice cream can change your life. This is a sweet fun read and just the start of Thom and Gerry's life and adventures together.Five Shooting Stars

    3.5 heartsWell, there certainly is something about a kilt. Because, damn. Look at that cover!Thom is enjoying his ice cream, minding his own business when he spots a hottie with a kilt, Gerry, walking by. They talk, they flirt, Thom invites him out later, but Gerry declines. He's leaving and doesn't want only a one night stand.Read the rest of my review here:
