Bookreview / October 19, 2016

Behind Closet Doors by L.A. Witt is a collection of four stories that all have one thing in common. Four couples from totally different worlds, all falling in love with someone and not only trying to make it work but also coming out to friends and family. Will they be able to make it work? A closeted politician and his smoking hot campaign manager. Two traumatized best friends who need each other more than ever. A grieving widower and a compassionate funeral director. A pair of musicians who can’t keep their hands off each other. And all of the men are more than willing and able to fight for their new found love, no matter what the outside world may think of it. This collection contains four stories, all full length and very well written. The titles are For The Living, From Out in the Cold, Where There’s Smoke, With the Band and all of them have been published before and are for sale separately. I love reading stories about coming out and about unlikely couples coming together and fighting for what they want against all odds. I have read L.A. Witt before and she has never before let me down and of course…

As a recent Netflixer I started by watching the first Season of a show I heard a lot about already.
