M/M Romance, HEA. 33k, 2nd Draft, complete, NC-17.

Genre: M/M Romance

Feedback: No need to be gentle. Brutal honesty is best. Skip the grammar for now, I'm looking for a 'broad strokes' read through to evaluate plot, the 'flow' of the manuscript, is my dialogue realistic and are my characters 3D. Also, do I need to fluff/elaborate certain chapters? Does it feel rushed?
*Note: If you reach a certain point and just can't go on, STOP. Make a note where the story failed for you and why. It's more helpful, IMO, to know the location my story failed/lost my reader...nothing else matters after that if my audience has walked away.

Publishing: My goal is to submit this to agents.

Credentials: I have no requirements here as I'm looking for a read through and opinions. All opinions will be helpful. Thanks!

Synopsis: Dr. Hart has moved to Atlanta where he meets co-worker Jacob and is forced to re-evaluate life, love, and what he really wants from both. Hart and Jacob are forced to come to terms with their past as they struggle to determine what possible future they might build together.

Would you be willing to swap reads for a 40K M/M erotic romance? It should be ready for a first beta reader in a week or two. I am looking for similar feedback, as well as any typos/grammar issues that jump out at you.


PM me if interested. :)
