The Best Gay Romance 2014 is an anthology edited by Timothy J. Lambert and R.D. Cochrane that includes 15 stories of m/m relationships that range from the sweet evocation of a new romance amidst the craziness of Hollywood (Strange Propositions by Eric Gober) to the carnal pleasures of unexpected lovers initiating someone to all kinds of new experiences in the world of make-believe (The Invincible Theatre by Felice Picano). Some were angsty, and others, thought-provoking and emotional, especially Spill Your Troubles On Me, Love by Georgina Li, which paints a starkly contrasting portrait of a bond between two people in very harsh circumstances. My favorites are the poignant and wonderfully romantic Sight by by Jordan Taylor that follows the development of a relationship that not only has to weather the challenges of coming out but also the obstacle of coping with an unexpected disability and Shep: A Dog that blends a whimsical bit of paranormal with the genesis of a sweet new romance. Some of the stories seem to end a bit too soon but there is definitely a nice mixture of styles and this is a great introduction to the works of many talented authors. --Night Owl Reviews

While there's still some s-e-x in these pages, the focus here is ...romance! It's sweet, and (surprise!) incredibly satisfying... --Instinct Magazine
