    2.5 starsI had a lot of difficulty rating and reviewing Blue Moon, I really don't know what to say I kept hoping that it would get better and surprise me but it didn't. The wrestling part of the story.....what there was of it was okay, nothing special and too short. Brad and Scott didn't click much as a couple, no spark, no emotional connection until the very end. That's where I actually felt something for Brad and Scott, showing some emotion for each other. I hate giving bad reviews and this is my own personal opinion, maybe it was me who didn't get what it was about. Unfortunately though it didn't work out for me!

    4 HeartsFirst published at MM Good Book Reviewshttp://mmgoodbookreviews.wordpress.co...Hmmm, this is one of those books that fly’s by as you read it but you feel, until the last few pages, like you missed something. Brad is being bullied, misused and taken advantage of up until the moment Scott steps in to claim him. Scott loves the concept of control, he likes the illusion that he is in complete control and with Brad he has found someone who is receptive to Scott being in charge.I liked this book. It had a bit of kink. Basically, Brad really wanted it and Scott liked to give him. But, it was also about trust. Brad is trusting Scott to do the right thing for both of them and Scott controlling Brad and giving him what he needs rather than what he wants. For me, it was actually more an illusion of control that Scott needed as well because they both know that Brad could say no at any time and Scott would stop. The sex between them is intense and passionate and the scene at the end of the book had me catch my breath, as after a year, both men finally opened their hearts to each other.With this one, I think I will have to recommend it to those who love hot sex, great action in the ring, an intense partnership, resisting temptation and a happy ending that was touching.

    Brad Fraser is young man floating through life. He is a success on the B level wrestling circuit, but allows his restlessness to get him in trouble. His latest mistake - allowing a drug dealing bully on the tour to use him a little too roughly. Because that's what Bruiser does - traded drugs for sex and favors.Until Scott O'Doul steps in and makes a deal. He will take Brad under his wing and maintain the illusion of control, and in exchange Brad will have Scott's protection. Scott will use him for pleasure, their mutual pleasure. This arrangement works well for over a year. They have fun, pleasure, a good time.But is that all it is?This is a very short tale, but OH so effective. I have read novels ten times the length that did not touch me one tenth as much. The two men are drawn so sharply, and there is a tight, controlled sense of wonder to this fantastic story.Because this is a story about how love is about belonging rather than control. Surrender means strength not weakness. And two men can fall into love if only they allow themselves.Beautifully written. Short and so very very sweet.Tom

    This book was really confusing to me. The reader was dropped into a relationship with no back story or anything. (view spoiler)[First off, one of the MC's was raped or taken advantage of to get a joint. Now I'm not saying it can't happen, but I've never heard of anyone that has a job, especially one where it seems like getting drugs is fairly easy to resort to sex acts they don't want for a single joint. Then a few pages in he's having this bdsm relationship with all this seriousness for someone the reader has no idea about. Next thing I know a couple pages later that guy asks the other to move in? (hide spoiler)] Then, it was A LOT of sex. Just not for me.

    One could think that story of Scott and Bradley, two pro-wrestlers, would be filled with violence and heavy-duty machismo and hard-core BDSM. But this was a story of two people who happen to be pro-wrestlers falling in love. Yes, the sex has its kinks but those are the results of their personalities coming into play rather than as a simple means of titillating the scenes. Apart these two men are sort of lost, but together they find out who they are. It is a beautiful albeit short story under the magic of the blue moon.

    I just couldn't get into this one. It wasn't terrible, but it confused me a little. You knew very little about the main characters, and it started off far too quickly for me to really understand where the relationship came from. It's a shame, because I really wanted to like this and I hate giving negative reviews. But I'm being honest, and I expected a lot more from this one.

    Brad is a young mixed-up guy who works on a low-level professional wrestling circuit. You know, the wrestling where it’s all choreographed and comes down to a lot of costumes and posturing and dangerous stunts. He is probably what you’d call a twink, small and blond, and a lost soul who isn’t highly educated or at ease with himself. The stresses of travel and being alone wear on him and he needs to get drunk and get high to erase his boredom and anxiety, and the poor guy doesn’t seem to have any family and friends. But he is smart and good-hearted, and he is a talented wrestler with a flair for working the crowd and using his small stature and speed and agility to his advantage.He gets picked on one morning at the arena by a big, leering fellow wrestler who sells drugs in exchange for sex. The previous night, Brad and the guy had sex and maybe the guy even forced himself on Brad and thinks he can do it again whenever he wants. But this time another wrestler Scott steps in and protects Brad. Scott is kind of an enigma, a big guy who speaks very formally like an oracle or something like that. He sweeps Brad off his feet and takes over his life with the understanding that he will give Brad all the rough sex that Brad craves and he will also make all the decisions to improve Brad’s life so that Brad can just be taken care of. This sounds like a good deal to Brad so they start a relationship.This sounds like BDSM, but it isn’t really the formal type with the rules and contract and all that many readers expect, which is okay. It could have gone either way for me. The rest of the story follows the relationship as it deepens to the intimacy of first declarations of love.This was a very interesting read that hints at the weird and stressful world of professional wrestling. This hasn’t been done before in gay romance, I don’t think. Very original. And the holds and the terms and techniques are all here, good stuff. I found it all so interesting that I wanted much, much more scenes and details of that world. Once Scott and Brad get lined up by management to fight each other with Brad choreographed to win and they have to face each other down like enemies with Scott putting on a way menacing persona. Later he says to Brad, “Facing you across the ring is not something I wish to repeat,” and “It took all my effort not to take you by force right there in the ring as you pinned me.” Wow, like five different kinds of hot! I would totally read more about these two guys and their professional wrestling world.

    Despite the sports theme (profession wrestlers), Blue Moon is more the romance the title let you imagine than a dirty story about sex in locker rooms.It does start a little rough, Bradley is a young man with some issues, probably he is not made to live all by himself, and even if they are a league, when he is on the road, he is basically alone, and he is on the road for most of his time. So Bradley is taking a down low, he is using mild drugs and he is paying with sexual favours for them; sexual favours that sometime go farer than what he would like, like this time, and Bradley is in danger.Scott comes rescue him like a knight in shining armour, he sweeps him from his feet and take him to his castle… well, hotel room. When Bradley is ready to talk, Scott explains his plan: Bradley will give up the command of his life to Scott, and Scott will make it sure that Bradley is fine and receive everything he needs, sex, food, comfort. If to someone else this could seem more a prison than love, to Bradley is paradise; as I said, he has not really the streak to live alone, and I don’t think he is one who is able to take important decision alone. I had the feeling that Bradley was lucky enough to turn a youth passion, wrestling, into a job, but actually Bradley is still that kid who was playing, he has not really entered the adult world.Scott on the other side is playing as well, he is playing the game of BDSM for not being fully involved. And that seems a contradiction, but let me explain. I think that Scott is thinking that, if he controls Bradley, there is no chance that Bradley hurts him; and even if in the end, Bradley will hurt him, Scott can always say to himself that was “only” a game, that was not real.Scott and Bradley enter in a relationship maybe with the wrong assumptions, but a relationship they have, and that will lead to love. Sometime, even if you don’t start in the right way, you reach the right point.http://www.amazon.com/dp/B006TI8ENW/?...

    Reviewed by Stacey Jo: This is a book about two wrestlers, Brad Fraser and Scott O'Doul, and their life during the circuit and in the off times. You get to learn behind-the-scene facts about the sport of wrestling. Don't worry if you aren't interested in that because the wrestling facts are limited and go a long way in enhancing the story. Brad is bored with life on the circuit and goes to one of the bad boy wrestlers for help, only to be rescued by Scott. Little does he know this is the start of something new for both of them. Both of them give each other something that the other needs very badly, although they don't realize it at the time. Their relationship is a slow build at first but they have really, really, fantastically hot, sex. There is mild BDSM involved in this story but it is very well done and although it's a big part of their relationship, it's not necessarily a big part of the book. This isn't a BDSM story. And these guys really know how to show their tenderness and affection for each other. All that being said, there really ins't a whole lot to the story, despite it being a very good one. It's pretty straight forward. There is no great conflict or drama. Two guys have been basically co-workers for a while now and finally move their relationship further. BDSM is a factor. They have to put up with an annoying jerk of a co-worker. You are really just watching their relationship unfold over the period of a year. And the end is sweet enough to make your teeth hurt! But in a good way. These are two guys that you can't help but love and wish the best for. If you like your stories with a bit of sports info, with some light BDSM, really hot sex, with main characters you fall in love with, and short enough to read in one sitting, then this is a good one to choose.

    Bleh I can't believe I paid $4 for this. It basically contains everything I hate about romance novels: below average writing, weirdly pretentious dialogue (nobody talks like 19th century gentlemen okay; also, contractions are a thing), super unsexy sex scenes (some of the adjectives...I winced. And can we please not use "cum" in published works, okay?) that I just skimmed because they were painful, no real character or relationship development, and unrealistic, uninteresting plot.

    I liked this book very much, as there was a believable development of the relationship. Yes, there was not very much wrestling, but for that I was thankful:)) as it's a sport I don't understand at all. It was rather endearing to follow the way Bradley changes during the course of the book for the sake of the relationship and both men struggle with voicing their true feelings.

    Originally reviewed for The Book Vixen In a Nutshell: I liked this MM romance and though it’s not one I loved, I appreciated that this relationship is what both leads need.The Set Up: Pro-wrestler Brad likes to live dangerously in the ring and out of it with drugs and meaningless sex. Fellow wrestler Scott offers to give Brad the danger he likes while keeping him safe from sexual bullies. Over the course of the next year, Brad and Scott’s relationship deepens until one night when Scott may push Brad too far.Why I Read this Book: The cover and synopsis caught my eye.What I Liked: I like that this short novella covers Brad and Scott’s relationship over a year’s time. Their relationship is very erotic and needed time to develop even the small amount of emotional intimacy that it did. I like that Scott and Brad communicate their desires, mostly sexual but some emotional, and both long for a connection to each other even without knowing how to achieve it.I also like that Brad’s desire for drugs isn’t miraculously cured by his involvement with Scott. Too often in romance love “fixes” things like addiction and that irritates me. This novella doesn’t delve deeply into addiction but neither does it gloss over triggers, like boredom, that motivate users like Brad.What I Didn’t Like: This is a dark romance. The men agree to an “illusion of control” which is code for some BDSM sexual activity. This isn’t my cuppa tea so I didn’t love this dark romance. BDSM fans may really enjoy this physically and emotionally intense relationship where both leads get exactly what they need from each other.IMO: Quick read with a dark MM romance that while I could understand why the leads need this kind of romance, I didn’t love it.

    Not bad. Brief, but rather complete in and of itself. Nice-ish, solid story. Not horribly deeply meaningful or anything, but not a total flop either.

    I liked the end of this book but the beginning seemed quite cold, even odd, almost like the relationship between brad and Scott was a business arrangement, no real emotion there. Overall about a 3.5
