Review: Unexpected Relationships

Unexpected RelationshipsUnexpected Relationships by Graveyard Greg

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Book Description
When Burt discovers Kevin is homeless, it leads to an unexpected and unlikely relationship between the two.

Unexpected Relationships is a sweet short story from the world of Carpe Diem, a webcomic by Graveyard Greg and Redkam. It is a gay-themed story focused on the lives of various young friends, both at the gymnasium where they work/meet, and in their homes. The characters are anthropomorphic, commonly known as "furry", and are based on a variety of animal creatures (such as pandas, tigers, giraffes, or rhinos) but are realistic and human-like, at heart.

I read the webcomic, Carpe Diem, some years ago and came across a familiar image -the book cover- while looking through Smashwords for something interesting to read. I purchased the book for $0.99, and I knew from Greg's previous work that I would enjoy this one as well.

This story focuses strongly on the relationship and the love between the two people. Sex is mentioned, of course, but within the story it is never a focus and the work contains no explicit scenes. It's sweet and endearing, and the characters seem real and motivated by true experiences.

Unexpected Relationships is, as expected, pretty awesome. It is a story I would recommend for those interested in the Romance genre, even if only slightly.
