I love short stories. They're also especially difficult to write. Trying to tell a complete story with character development, plot, and romance in a span of just a few pages can be harder than writing a novel. Which is why it's always a treat to come across one I really enjoy. Hunter Frost's debut story is fantastic, and I can't wait to see what she gives us next.
I admit, I love romance stories with geeks, seeing that I'm one myself. I might not play world of WoW, but I'm definitely geeky in other ways. I loved Sean. He was sweet, funny, and oh so awkward. I could certainly relate to his plight. And then we have the sexy UPS guy who's more than what he seems.
In 33 pages, we get everything a short story should have, and by the end, I wish there was more, so much more. But it's a short story and I accept that. The characters are well rounded, and Ms. Frost has a fabulous way of letting you know plenty about each man through his actions and reactions. We get description, plot, humor, romance, and some hotness. You might never look at the UPS guy the same way again. A very well written and thoroughly entertaining story. Highly recommended.What Can Brown Do for You? by Hunter Frost Genre: Gay Romance Contemporary Pages: 33 Publisher: Torquere Press ISBN: 9876543210754 Part of the Men In Uniform anthology, but available for purchase on its own.

IT geek Sean Barlow lusts after the dreamy UPS guy who charms the ladies in his office with his roguish smile and sinful brown shorts. The delivery guy couldn't be more out of Sean's league, even if by some miracle he was gay. But when a freak power outage finds Sean trapped in the elevator with his uniformed hunk, he learns first-hand that you can't judge a UPS guy by the size of his package.
