After their time in Savannah, Wills and Crispin have decided to give it a try for real this time, and Crispin visits his best friend-turned-lover in the liberal college town of Athens, Georgia — four hours from the anti-gay strictures of uppercrust Savannah society. He worries their relationship won’t have changed much from the secretive encounters they shared over Christmas break. But without the homophobia surrounding their repressive upbringings, Crispin and Wills find an entirely different kind of romance.
The two shorts in Like Sunshine show two memorable characters in a sweet, coming-of-age, first-love story with high heat through the lyrical prose of Julia McBryant.
Spin-offs of the Southern Seduction universe include both the Low Country Lovers and Southern Scandal series.
Rainbow Gold Reviews: OMG! Guys!!! I’m absolutely in LURVVVVE with Crispin and Wills! I’m also a big fan of these short erotic romances. They are just the thing when you need a dose of love with a touch of angst and a whole lot of sizzle. Crispin and Wills found a place in my heart right away and they are now in my top 5 favorite couples of all time! … There’s just enough angst to make it thrilling, there’s the sense of fear that they might be outed and the love… so much love that these two have for each other and last but not least is the sizzle, because when they get together the chemistry is explosive! (10/10)
Gay Book Reviews: The reader is likely to nostalgically yearn again for the reader’s own first relationship. Like Sunshine, just as It’s Enough before, is a tone poem to first love. (5/5 stars, 5/5 heat)
Truus/loveislovereview: I loved this kind, passionate story. These boys are intense in their own special way. Words are important but not all the time. They can just do without, their bodies speak louder. Written in a captivating way, I felt connected. It had an amazingly joyful vibe. Their sexy togetherness is hot and intense. I loved this super short story dearly. Please let there be a continuation. I really want to get to know them better and see them grow together.
