Ever since his longtime lover decided he'd seen the "heterosexual light," Matt's life has been in a nosedive. Six months of too many missed shifts at the hospital, too much booze, too many men. Matt knows he's on the verge of losing everything, but he's finding it hard to care.Then Matt meets Aaron....

That's right after having read this book at least 5 times, with the most recent being this past weekend when I was fortunate enough to share this reading experience in a buddy read with the awesomeness of Christelle, Josy, Lila and Natalie. It's high time that I attempted to review what is one of my...

The writing didn’t really work for me.We get pages and pages of inner musings, without any dialogue. The conversations in the beginning are told to us, not shown. I need more than: ‘He told me something and I left.’ What did he tell you?? What is his name??There was also a serious lack in communicat...

This is when I want to be a better writer so I relay exactly how I feel about Harper Fox's writing. I feel there are very few writers who can capture pain and loneliness like Fox. She doesn't use over the top plot devices for the sake of drama. Her characters are regular dudes who've lost the ground...

Another of my favourites, which I also wrote about for Queer Romance Month.Stories matter.It really is that simple.They teach us who we are, and how not to feel alone. They give us hope. And, sometimes they give us a framework to confront the things that terrify us. Perhaps it seems a strange thing ...

I normally love narrator Sean Crisen, but his heavy accent was indecipherable in this story. I returned the audiobook and will give the ebook a try.

2 melodramatic stars. Review posted February 3, 2014Expectations suck...In a nutshellMatt is supposed to be a doctor and drowns in self-pity by swallowing every crap he can get his hands on. He's stoned, drunk and unhappy all. The. Time. Plus, he fucks everybody on two legs. Disgusting. Let's keep i...

Harper Fox does it again with lyrical, evocative, precise prose. I adore how she didn't hold back with Matt's deconstruction, how loving he truly is, and how both men sought some baser relief from their pain but found something beautiful instead. I probably enjoyed Scrap Metal a little better, bec...
In The Mood For LOVE
In The Mood For LOVE rated it 8 years ago
After a rather rocky and unpromising start, this turned into one of best romances I've ever read and earned a place in my keepers shelf. The language is lyrical, quite different from your mainstream romances and that might put a few readers off; it was one of the things I loved about it though. Grea...

Harper Fox is a hit or miss author for me. Sometimes I really enjoy her books and others I just can't seem to finish. Nevertheless, I really liked this one. It's a bit angsty and deals with Matt who's neck-deep in drugs, alcohol and sex.It was hard for me to like Matt. He's a very fragile character ...
