Animal Magnetism by Rhiannon Wellman

Harvey has spent years locked away from everything, the fences around his land just as high as the ones around his heart. Simon is like a light in the dark. Will he be just what Harvey didn’t know he needed?
Both men need to learn to love again, but will their animals’ budding friendship be the catalyst for everything that follows
What can I say? This was a fun erotic m/m anthology. The stories, for the most part, were well put together and sexy as hell. There were a couple that I didn’t care for at all (and a couple with girly bits. Whaaaa?) but with so many stories it still gets a good rating. I think my favorites of the anthology were (but not the only ones I liked):
The Land of Enchantments and Brunch by Sax Alexander – I loved the characters, their personalities and they way they interacted with others. It was such a short story but packed a charming punch.
Exercising His Options by Wt Prater – This was one with girly bits but it worked for me despite that. I think it was the fact that this had a married couple striking out into the unknown. The wife was willing to take her husband’s attraction to a man and not think less of him.
Fraternity Brothers by Carrie Pulkinen – Fraternity brothers who fall in love – one gay, one who thinks he’s straight but probably isn’t. This story had very little to do with the fraternity but that’s what brought them together. Their friendship was what made this new love work for me.
One of the things I love about anthologies is the fact that I can read it all at once or come back for a short story in between novels. If your in the mood for a good m/m erotic anthology this would be a good one to pick up.
Rating: 3.75/4 out of 5
