When I saw the list of authors who participated in this anthology, I could not wait to get my hands on it! This could have been 5 stories about watching paint dry and I would have still jumped at the chance to read it!
Author: JP Barnaby, Sara York, Ethan Stone, William Cooper and Brandon Witt
Publisher: Stiff Rain Press
Cover Artist: Les Byerley
Rating: 5 of 5 Stars
Caught Between a Cock and a Hard Dom by J.P. Barnaby
Brandon Lennox doesn’t like people. When his lover and Dom signs him up for an author conference in Austin, Texas, his social anxiety goes into overdrive.
Well, until the hot boy in the tight little Robin costume shows them both just how much of a boy wonder he is.
Family Lines by Sara York
Brett Nash is a successful author, but his past still haunts him. Being kicked out of his home at the age of sixteen has left him distrustful of others. When Daniel, his stepbrother, shows up at HomoEroticCon, Brett has to decide to stay or leave. Worse, his publisher traps them in a room together; forcing Brett to talk to the one man he’s never stopped loving.
Fanboy by Brandon Witt
HomoErotiCon was only a conference. Just four days. Nothing more than a long weekend. Hooked from the first moment he picked up his first gay romance novel, Sampson Pruitt fantasized about living a life like the ones he read about on the page. The novels made him hope he might be able to truly break free, and discover the courage to leave the secrecy of his life. Maybe even meet the author of his dreams. Just four days. For this Fan Boy, four days might be enough to change everything.
Fan Service by William Cooper
Author Josh Austin loves going to conventions all the time, especially HomeErotiCon. But those weekends take their toll on the introverted author. Normally used to curling up alone to toil away at his books, it’s always a complete change of pace having to be “on” for all the readers and fellow authors.
But when an overeager fan crawls under his table at the signing, he can’t say no. When Carlisle begins to unzip his pants, Josh lets loose for once in his life, living like the characters straight out of one of his books.
Where else would this horny twink lead him?
Muse by Ethan Stone
Micah Shea is nursing a broken heart when he arrives at HomoErotiCon. He just wants to chill out, have fun and get laid a time or two. The weekend starts out well with a fun encounter with a bellhop and an invite to an orgy. However, at the party Micah’s world is turned upside down when he sees a man who is the exact embodiment of a dream he had years ago—the guy who became his muse and the star of his books.
At first Micah is drawn to Trevor because of the resemblance, but the more Micah gets to know Trevor the more he genuinely likes him. The sex is awesome but they have more than just a physical connection.
It all goes to hell when Trevor learns the truth and Micah has to convince him he isn’t a stalker—before the end of the conference.

OMG! I do not think I have ever read an anthology and LOVED every story it contained. Well, that is absolutely the case with Authors Gone Wild! I read it from start to finish without stopping and enjoyed every sexy minute. I may have even needed a cold shower when I was done.
This anthology was a bit different than I expected. But that was a very good thing. I figured this would be like most other anthologies where the authors all wrote stories that were loosely connected by some theme, but were each stand alone pieces of work that had nothing really to do with the others stories. That is not the case here. I could really tell that the authors worked together to provide 5 stories that were not only set in the same location, but were also interconnected by characters and events. I loved seeing the same characters appear throughout each story. I even love that the spa scene made it into several of the stories as well. That was a HOT scene (pun intended) and it was worth revisiting from several angles.
I also love the fact that the authors included nods to some of my real life favorites. Kindle Alexander, Christopher Koehler, and FE Feeley were name dropped and Ms. Barnaby herself was characterized and imbedded in the tales. I loved it! Not only was the anthology well written and fun to read, it kept my attention by forcing me to stay on my toes looking for the next real world reference. There was even some poking fun at the female writer/pseudonym debate. hehe!
I don’t know how else to say that I loved this collection. It was so much more than I ever dared hope for and I am so glad I got to read this. The 5 authors are fabulous and worked so well together on this. If I could recommend one anthology this year, this would be it! Go out and pick up your copy today!
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.

Over the between now (11 Mar 2017) and 31 Mar 2017, every comment on the blog (this post and all other new posts), will be entered to win 1 of these paperbacks.
