    "Thriller books are the main books I read. I went to my local library and picked up Cut & Run (Cut and Run). I was surprised there was gay characters. It made it interesting to me. I finished the book and came away surprised by the events that happened. I really liked that it was different than I had read before. "

    "If you like gay romance with a sense of pathos and most importantly, humor, you can't go wrong with this series. It's cleverly written and is more than what it appears to be."

    "I had a hard time reading The Hell You Say: The Third Adrien English Mystery. The characters were just too hard to like for the most part. The story also moved a lot slower than it needed to. Some parts were good, but overall it needed more action."

    "I think that this is one of the better books that is both a thriller and features gay characters. J.F. Smith has written a novel that could be straight from a CSI screenplay as it features plenty of action and involvement from the Navy SEALS. The author does do a good job of showcasing the relationship between Matt and Brian and this is probably one of the few books that showcases a real LGBT relationship. The author definitely includes some fairly direct social commentary on homophobia and attempts to make a statement within the novel. I wish he had been a little more subtle with his approach but outside of that, this is a solid novel."

    "This book is an obvious piece of trash. Disgusting smut disguised as sci-fi. It has no business existing. Completely worthless."

    "I think this is less of a thriller, and more of a straight forward (no pun intended) gay erotica. Is that the kind of thing that you're into? Then hey this might just be the book for you!"

    "I think the author aptly named this book (or at least including the word heat is apropos. This is a romance that focuses on two gay men. It's also a thriller, in that it's about crime, crime lords, and there's a fair bit of violence. It's also the first in a series, so if you like this one - there's more to read. This is a great book for m/m sex. "
