Book Review of Crate Trained by Julia Talbot

    Crate Trained (Book Cover)

    Crate Trained by Julia Talbot is part of Torquere Press’ short story series, A Sip. The characters are likable and the story is interesting. I hope this is going to be the beginning of a new, longer story, since much of the back-story is missing.

    Crate Trained is a brief look into the possible relationship between Gary and Chey, two roommates. It leaves some key questions unanswered in revealing just what happens to Gary when he ventures out to a gay bar alone looking for a hook-up.

    The pace of the short story is frenetic and the writing is strong. Talbot is a good teller of tales. The scenes between Chey and Gary are passionate and fun. Crate Trained is a nice tease and worth 3.5 stars.
