Tales From Cushman Row
A Compendium of Love
Release Date: December 12th, 2017
“Come here, you moron.”
For fans of the Venery series, author Suanne Laqueur offers a compendium of love scenes—unpublished chapters, character sketches and assorted reflections about Javier Landes and Steffen Finch. A treat to skim through, skip around and linger over at leisure. Like caviar.
For people who like this sort of thing, this is the sort of thing they will like. Contains adults in adult situations using adult language and a f**k-ton of gratuitous boning. No socks required. Batteries sold separately.
“Why do I like when you call me a moron,” Jav said.
Stef smiled. “Because the moron in me recognizes the moron in you.”
I thought that Tales from Cushman Row was going to be just a fine piece of lusty literature and it absolutely is. But it’s also so much more than that.
It chronicles the highs and lows of new found love and the uncertainty of finding out who they really are. From the tender loving humor of Jav and Stef to the blossoming artistic flourish of Ari, this book shines new light into the world of Venery.
“Listen,” Stef said.
We’re also introduced to the genesis of some of the characters and how they developed into the complex creatures that we know them to be. Their voices demanded that their tales be told leaving Suanne to masterfully translate them onto the page in her unforgettable style.
Stef took a few deep breaths, exhaling each one heavier. “I’m kind of loving you right now,” he said.
Yes, there are scenes that will raise your temperature to insane levels. But there’s also more laughter, more soul and more tears between the covers to make this an intoxicating read…
