    1 thought on “A Man for Michael

    1. This book reminded me of the movie Unleashed which stars Jet Li and Morgan Freeman. There were many simularities between Cory and Jet's character in the movie. When I read the book I even envisioned Cory looking like a younger Jet, so that was an added bonus for me.When Michael Antonio was younger, he fought in the underground fight clubs and was quite successful at it. Now he owns his own gym, and has been glad to have gotten away from that violent, often deadly occupation. When his shady frien [...]

    2. I'm so unclear on how to begin to rate this one. On one hand I really enjoyed certain parts and on the other eyes were on a constant upward rolls.A story about an abused slave/cage fighter (Cory Chow) and his ex-cage fighter lover (Michael)? Sounds awesome to me. Sign me up!Let's get the parts that niggled me first! The weird cockney dialect the author chose to use for all of the Brits in the story? "'Ello, Guv'nor" or "Better than bangers and mash, I say". Err Stop. The off putting affectations [...]

    3. WoW! For such a short story it had a lot of punch to it! I loved Corey. He was so sweet underneath the tough exterior that was forced on him. He and Mike were made for one another. I wish she would write more on these two! They were characters that had a love I won't forget anytime soon.

    4. I loved Corey! The abuse he suffered most of his life was awful, but he still had the sweetest almost childlike soul. I was so glad he found happiness with Michael. I thought they were well matched, and perfect for one another. This was a great book!

    5. This book was fabulous! I thought that Michael and Corey were made for one another. Sweet storyline and romance. Loved it!

    6. Short story that packed a punch! ( pun intended)Cory's life has to be one of the saddest, yet one look from Mike and they are both changed.I liked this sweet tale, but wished for just a bit more story at the end, i wanted to see how their lives continued.

    7. Cory was a one million dollar baby hold in captivity by the same man who possesed his father and, after his father's dead, has killed his mother. Cory is like a slave, if he wants to eat he has to fight, fuck or suck. But he feels no rage for his master, he wants only love, a warm embrace, even if from the very man who holds in leashed. But one night he meets the eyes of Michael, a former fighter, now retired. Michael is tall and muscular but he has a gentle smile. And in his eyes he reads the s [...]

    8. I don't know, there is something from this book that makes me feel disconnected to the story. It feels like nothing special. It might be my own problem *shrugs*

    9. Summary: You're better off seeing the movie. This was a good story, well written, and with sexy characters. The only reason I took 2 stars off is because--well--it's a ripoff of the movie, Unleashed. Maybe rip-off is too strong of a word. It's a straight up fanfic. I love fanfiction. I read it often, but when I'm spending money on a novella, I expect an original story with original characters. This wasn't a 'oh, it's a little like the movie' or 'it has similar themes'. This was THE movie with TH [...]

    10. Sweet little read. (view spoiler)[ If this book had gone on a longer we would have been able to watch Cory Chow learn how to be a free man and function in the real world. I really enjoyed it but I know we missed a lot of character development. What happened to Noodle. Why do writers rush their endings? (hide spoiler)]

    11. This is one of those stories that really should have been much longer. I wanted to know more about Michael and Cory and just felt kind of "okay, is that it?" Still, if you're looking for something short, sexy and full of hot asian male goodness (it's about time they get recognition for their strength and their sexiness), then this will work.

    12. I really enjoyed the story. I like Cary a lot-he is so adorable and Mike is also sweet.But the most I liked the way Cary first used the word 'Sweethearts' so cute. =)
