Two shorts by Natasha Duncan-Drake


Sticking with the M/M theme, I’ve read a couple of others by Natasha Duncan-Drake. Not her best, but still OK.

Chip off the old block

ChipOfftheOldBlock3 stars

Synopsis: The Anti-Christ is coming!

His name is Owen.

Well technically it’s Beherit, but that’s so last millennium. Aspiring to world domination is just around the corner and his simple life of school is coming to an end … which is kind of the problem. His best friend David, the local vicar’s son, will no longer be there and that makes Owen feel things he doesn’t understand. What else is a boy to do, but ask his dad what it all means, even if that dad has horns and his eye on the corruption of humankind?

My thoughts: 28 pages, this one was a very quick read. It was enjoyable.

Where to buy: Again, Wittegen Press has the list of locations to buy. It is free on Smashwords so, maybe head there first?

Review: What would you do if you were the Anti-Christ, a bookish virgin and your dad was Satan?

Well you can find out in Natasha’s cheeky M/M romance based around Owen and David. Not for the feint-hearted, this one, like a lot of Natasha’s work is rather explicit.

The boys are interesting and despite having their own flaws, are still charming and sexy. Seeing as this is only a short one, the character development is lacking, but you wouldn’t pick up Natasha’s work if that’s what you’re after. Natasha delivers quick, sexy M/M fiction like a boss!

This one is sprinkled with a little kink, which is nice too.

Three Bullets

Threebullets3 stars

Synopsis: Bae figured out he wasn’t like most of the guys in his small home town pretty quickly, which is why he wants out. His only route is college and for that he needs money. When he sees an ad in the local paper for a house sitter with very good rates he jumps at it. What he soon finds out it that it’s a person sitting job as well. Jim Jones and his brother Steve are new to town and Steve is temporarily blind thanks to an accident. The job involves looking after the house and Steve while Jim is out of town.

That wouldn’t be so bad, except Steve has an attitude problem and something about the two brothers just doesn’t seem quite right. Bae is not sure what he has gotten himself into, but it’s definitely not what he was expecting

My thoughts: 30 pages of graphic M/M/M. It technically could be considered interracial, but it’s not a main focus.

Where to buy: Wittegen Press has a thorough list of locations and prices on where to buy the book. You can find it here.

Review: Don’t you just hate it when your review disappears into the ether of the interwebs?!? I do.

Second time lucky!

This one isn’t Natasha’s best, it’s too short, too light on detail and you don’t get to know the characters. I really didn’t connect with any of the three men in this story. Of them all, I liked Steve the best.

M/M/M and very graphic, this one is most definitely not for the newly acquainted with this genre.

I would have liked more story, longer and more intricate scenes, more senses, especially given Steve’s condition.

Enjoyable for the short piece of titilation that it is meant to be, nothing more.

  1. Wow – they’re definitely very short! 28 and 30 pages, I can’t imagine there would be a lot of time to develop the characters, but as you say it’s just quick, sexy M/M fiction. It’s not my thing, but I like reading your reviews 😉

    • Thanks Dianne, Natasha’s Cat’s Call series is great, fantasy bordering on YA, no gay themes at all, perhaps those would be more your cup of tea? I enjoyed both installments.
