    This is a short, quirky, somewhat whimsical and quite delightful sexual awakening and May to December romance rolled into one.I honestly wasn t sure where it was going when I first started reading it and, for a time, I don t think the story quite did either as Stephen s attraction to Declan did seem to come from nowhere.Declan s own behaviour was a tad strange but it did fit into the character of a much younger dreamer with his fey photography and idealistic experiences.All in all though a quick read which was enjoyable and a bit different.This is a re release and it has a lovely new cover I don t believe there s any changes to the text though.ETA The lovely VL Locey has let me know there is a new Epilogue ARC kindly provided by the author in return for an honest and unbiased review.

    You re a 45 year old author with three failed marriages under your belt, and a pressing deadline to finish your latest Mick Dell think James Bond mega seller but you ve lost your mojo What do you do You actually listen to your 20 yr old daughter and spend the summer at Whispering Pines Creative Campground, some sort of summer camp in upstate New York, to get in touch with nature and find your muse although you know it s some goddamn hippy commune in the Catskills at the end of 10 miles of unpaved road.When Steven Ramsey arrives at Camp Acid Trip , he becomes besotted with Declan, a lean young man of 22 who is a photographer of fey things foggy lakes, leaves thin as pixie wings, fairy rings mushrooms in the forest lit by moonbeams , and all of a sudden as in two sentences realizes exactly why his three marriages failed The summer dissolves into a series of hot, oh so hot nights of passion, with a background of tunes on vinyl by Stevie Wonder, Fleetwood Mac, Elton John, hence the name of the book.For a novella of about 80 pages, the story was good, but a bit too compact to get really to know Declan or explore what happens next and the ending is abrupt But any book that contains sentences like What I had been writing for the past two days was literary vomit, if I were being honest It was stream of consciousness crap for sure, a fifteen page run on sentence hidden under the regurgitation of masticated wordage is all right by me.

    This was sweetreally, really sweet and I ll be back to chat about it soonish, of course Sorry, I m on the move right now and the reading is a little easier to accomplish than the reviewing but I ll get thereI promise May 10 18 Update finally my review for this little gem Who doesn t know the words to at least one song by Stevie Wonder While I m still not a big fan of stories where there s an age gap between the MCs and by age gap I mean 10 years or I really enjoyed this one Stephen Ramsey is a successful 45 year old writer who s lost his muse He s been married 3 times and has a college aged daughter who thinks he needs to try something different and wants him to go to a retreat for the summernot having any better ideas he decides to give it a try and heads off for basically the middle of nowhere to find his muse and commune with nature What he finds is 22 year old Declan Pomeroy a photography student who piques his interest and has him totally enchanted.While I haven t read a lot of stories by this author I have to admit this one had a slightly different tone to the writing and I enjoyed it At times it felt a little rambly and disjointed but at times life can be a bit rambly yes, rambly s a wordok, maybe i just made it one but hey how do you think all these other words came to be and disjointed so really why can t stories reflect that aspect of the real world if it works and in this case for this reader it worked.There s a 22 year age gap between these two men and I have admit for me that s stretching thingsI mean seriously we ve gone from who s your daddy to I could be your fatherliterally I could be your father and sometimes that s a little than I m comfortable with but there were certain things that really helped to offset this for me taking it from a story that could have been eewwww and creepy to a story that was sweet and I enjoyed So let s see if I can explain what went right for me1st is the fact that it was Declan who basically did the pursuing Which for me can make a huge difference It made this a story about 2 men who were interested in each other exploring a relationship and it offset the imbalance of power that I often feel when it s the older man who does the pursuing Especially when the older man is established in his career and has the amount of relationship experience that Stephen has.2nd I liked that Declan didn t loose sight of his goals and what he wanted out of life for himself when it came to a career While Declan may not have totally had his life together neither was he anyone s pushover who was going to become some mindless little neophyte If anything in some ways I felt like Declan was what some people would call an old soul But only in some ways in other ways he had a certain sweetness and innocence about him 3rd I enjoyed the interactions between these two In general this pairing worked for me both in and out of the bedroom I realize that Stephen suddenly realizing he s bisexual at the age of 45 may seem like a stretch or even a bit preposterous to some but honestly I had a dear friend who was in their 50s when had the same realization so for me it didn t seem so unlikely of an event.4th I really liked the way the author wove music into this story I think a lot of us could probably create our own life play list without a lot of effort and I know for me a number of the songs in this book would be on my playlist so I think in hindsight that my connection to this story started with the musicI haven t done this in a while but this story basically begged for it and I found that at the end of it all for Stephen and Declan it was a Stevie Wonder song Overjoyed And though you don t believe that they doThey do come trueFor did my dreamsCome true when I looked at youAnd maybe too, if you would believeYou too might beOverjoyed, over love, over me.This one was short, sweet and fun to read So if you re in the mood for something that s not complicated but definitely enjoyable then load up your Stevie Wonder playlist and curly up for an hour or two of light entertainment with Life is a Stevie Wonder Song An ARC of Life is a Stevie Wonder Song was graciously provided by the author in exchange for an honest review.

    A really cute enjoyable GFY story about an author whose muse has vanished Steven s life has taken it s toll He has spent the advance he had to write a book that hasn t been started and the empty page on his laptop is sparse than ever His daughter suggests he takes himself away from New York to seek new experiences, and he takes her suggestion to heart.Whilst away he meets Declan, a photography student half his age Captivated by the young man they begin a lovely relationship of discovery, but Steven has to decide what he really wants before they can find their HEA.The MCs were both easy to understand, though I related to Steven, probably as he is closer to my age Declan s personality shone through the book lighting up the world of those around him A lovely story, thanks

    Stephen has lost his muse So his daughter comes up with a idea of him going to a summer camp for the creative soul That is where he meets Declan a photographer he is attracted to. This was a short book so I will not go to much into it This Novella was so good and I really loved these two men together It did feel a little rushed to me but I still really liked this story and loved the way this author wrote these characters There is a age gap between Stephen and Declan but I really loved it how they were with each other So I will leave this review with I really like this Novella I would recommend this I received this book free in exchange for an honest review from Inked Rainbow Reads.

    This is a sweet novella from the wonderful mind of V.L Locey We have a bestselling author, Stephan Ramsey, and he s got killer writer s block Something authors know first hand Sometimes you can break through the wall Other times you need a push and so when Stephan s daughters tells him to take a vacation to the Catskill Mountains he does Enter free bird photographer Declan Pomeroy Yup sometimes inspiration comes in the form of a person and for Stephan it turns out the where isn t what s going to help him, it s the who.These are 2 opposites that go together They compliment each other and I really loved watching them interact Great dialog and flow The characters were defines and it was crisp writing I wish it was longer but it was a wonderful little story

    Great story

    This was a bit of harmless fantasy which I was kind of enjoying in a mindless way but the last twenty pages or so did manage to annoy me The story such as it is had one of my favorite tropes older younger Problem is you can t look at this even at middle distance because nothing is explained The fact that Steve, the older writer, is attracted to the younger man needs no explanation He s a sprite like creature and in the midst of a summer idle quite appealing However what Declan, the fae man child, sees in Steve is anyone s guess.Too much was elided and we ll say nothing of the fact that this thrice heterosexually married, John Le Carr type writer has no money and questions his new found bisexuality for about 0.5 seconds It is a short story and no time for heavy angst but nada is just wow Bonus points though for no bi erasure with that GFY nonsense If you have an hour to kill this won t hurt you but be clear that it is sheer summer fantasy Sometimes that s not a bad thing.

    I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads This is short, but so much fun It is slightly crazy but that can be love, can t it I enjoyed it from start to finish from the love of vinyl I am with Stephen there , to running around the wood in bare feet although usually clothes than Declan I was enchanted The premise of the author who has lost faith in his hero, has lost faith in relationships and needs a break from the chaos of New York going out into a wilderness retreat with his record player et al is fun The discovery he makes which changes everything, and yet suddenly makes sense beautifully written, and well, perfect really Just go get a copy and enjoy it it won t take long, but expect to be thinking about it for much longer Thank you Ms Locey for a little gem.
