    About Sean Michael


    1. Often referred to as Space Cowboy and Gangsta of Love while still striving for the moniker of Maurice, Sean Michael spends his days surfing, smutting, organizing his immense gourd collection and fantasizing about one day retiring on a small secluded island peopled entirely by horseshoe crabs While collecting vast amounts of vintage gay pulp novels and mood rings, Sean whiles away the hours between dropping the f bomb and persuing the kama sutra by channeling the long lost spirit of John Wayne and singing along with the soundtrack to Chicago A long time writer of complicated haiku, currently Sean is attempting to learn the advanced arts of plate spinning and soap carving sex toys.Barring any of that He ll stick with writing his stories, thanks, and rubbing pretty bodies together to see if they spark.

    1. I've decided Sean Michael writes one character and drops him in various settings. This prototype is always good, kind, but a little lonely. He always speaks in one word sentences.This time the prototype becomes Chad, a ranger, and Peter, a writer and single dad of twin infants, who decides it's a good idea to move to Bumfucknowhere, Alaska.Actual dialogue sample:Love.Yes. Yes, love.Now. Want. Love.Fuck, yes. Please.Love. Love. In. Love.Hot. Peter.Yeah.Love! Here, there's the occasional reference [...]

    2. This book was a surprise. Sadly, not a pleasant one. I don’t really know where to begin, but I suppose I should start with the biggie…e excessive sweetness. It was extremely sappy, dripping with sugar, and a saccharine-coma guarantee.Too much. There is definitely a limit when it comes to ooey-gooey and the proportions were heavily skewed with the sugar factor. A sweet tale can easily sweep me away, if a story exists within the fluff. I can confidently tell you I did not walk away with any [...]

    3. This book is so syrupy sweet, it gave me cavities.I don't mind sweet stories, but this one was too much to take. 100+ pages of two purrrfect gay guys cooing over two über adorable twin babies, having mind-blowing sex (after the babies were properly fed and asleep, of course) and professing their undying love for each other every frickin' minute? Sorry, that didn't work for me. There was not a single conflict in the story - in fact, I can't say there was even a plot to begin with - and the whole [...]

    4. It is all about feeding the baby's and having sex, then they go and feed the baby's and they have sex, well look at that it is about time to feed the baby's and guess what they have sex again.Boring book with no character development, to sweet and to much baby talk.

    5. Cute, sweet (short) story. Read sparingly for fear of developing type 2 diabetes.

    7. The sugar coma is always worth itI have read this book at least ten times and EVERY FREAKING TIME it melts my sugar greedy heart. Every time. I am a sucker for books with kids in them as most people know but that doesn't mean I love all books with kids. This book, however, hits all of my happy happy joy joy buttons. No conflict!!!This is very simply a book about a single dad who wants to raise his babies somewhere great and meets the love of his life in the process. No explosions, no inner strug [...]

    8. Way, way too sickly sweet and almost no plot. Bounced between babies and sex (which was extremely repetitive). :(

    9. Peter and his two newborns leave “the city” to move to Juneau for some peace and quiet. Peter’s ex, Allan, has abandoned him and doesn’t wish to be a part of their lives anymore. Peter is a writer, so he works from home, and is trying to find the best place to raise his kids.Chad meets Peter on his rounds as a Forest Ranger. He warns Peter about the upcoming fire danger and ends up falling in love. Literally.Pretty much from day one the two are all over each other. Both men just know the [...]

    10. I was non thinking to buy a sci-fiction romance when I bought First Steps The story of a man who willingly decides to mate with a single parents with two babies under one years old? pure science fiction!!! Ok, ok, I'm joking. This is a tenderful story about Chad, a lonely park ranger who arrives like a knight in shining armor to help Peter, a gay man who has decided to be father, and has used a substitutive mother to gain his goal. But the life of a single father, even more of a single father of [...]

    11. When porn is mixed with family drama it is not always the best reader choice, but yes females readers would like it least some of them. Peter was gay who payed surrogate mother to carry his child. He and his partner planed one, but it went in the direction, he did not expect. Instead one kid he got twins and extramoney to pay and his boyfriend left him. He moved to Alaska and met nice gay ranger and you got a story laced with diapers and kid food. Yuck. It is some cozy and warm that it scares sh [...]

    12. This may be the first time I've ever said this: this book was WAYYYY too long! There was zero, zilch, nada tension and the leads were together and had resolution by 17% into the story. What followed was just these perfect leads, in their perfect life, with perfect babies, having perfect sex. I hate to say it but I was b-o-r-e-d outta my gourd. Still I finished, yes, with book diabetes, but finished.

    13. Sean Michael is my go to fluff and feel good readsis was just a little too much even for me. I think the cute babies carried me to the end but there was just something missing in the connection between the MC's. I love my insta-loves but this was just a tad too much. Or at least the execution failed a little for me. I found myself skimming and it had the potential to be incredible.Still love this author just unfortunately not this shorty.

    14. Gawd if his name wasnt on the front of the book I'd never believe Sean Michael wrote it! it was sooo boring! I kept waiting and hoping for something to happen! It was sweet that they met and fell in love so quickly but then they never even fought or disagreed abt anything! It was the least believable book I've ever read I think. I think my fav stories of seans are the BDSM ones.

    15. If your sugar count is dangerously low, then you've found the perfect solution, this is sweet, very very sweet. Unfortunately my count started out as normal, then spiked to an alarming level! - found the one book of Sean Michael that didn't do it for me.

    16. I'm a little disappointed by this book. The idea was great and I'm a sucker for stories with babies. But the development wasn't great at all. Too many dialogues and the relationship between MCs too fast. It wasn't what I was expecting uff

    22. Well there are limits to sappy and sugary plots. This book has overstepped them all.

    23. “There are two things in life for which we are never truly prepared: twins.” ~Josh BillingsPeter, of 'First Steps' by Sean Michael, wants a family so much he hires a surrogate mother to bear his children. He thought he was prepared but soon finds that nothing can prepare anyone for twins. They may be two times the joy, but they are also double the work. Peter isn't doubting his love and desire for children, but he is beginning to question his sanity at ending up in an isolated cabin in Alask [...]

    24. -- MY THOUGHTS >** Verifiably Purchased **Judging a Book by it's Cover: Unsure why these men would be outside, bare-chested, on a snow-covered Alaskan day. The work boots and booties are cute, but unsure of the overall composition. The single daddy of twins element is what draws me in to want to read the book, but again "smarter choices" seems like it may be the theme in this one. Looking Deeper: Novella, 100 -150 pages. Third-person POV.Peter is a single dad, via surrogate, of twins Daniel a [...]

    25. Complete. Sugar. Overload. There is a limit to how much anyone can write about infants. Sean Michael passes the socially acceptable baby talk mark by the tenth page in this book. He manages to idealise Peter’s twins even when they were both screaming. Or sick. Or screaming and sick.To be fair, I’m not a baby fan. Twenty pages into this book I realised I hadn’t read the blurb closely enough when I signed up for the book. I signed up for a book about surviving in Alaska with a hot park range [...]

    26. "First Steps" by Sean Michael (MM/Romance)A copy of this book was provided to me by Inked Rainbow Reads in exchange for an honest review.****4 STARS****Though the description of "First Steps" is a tiny bit misleading, I liked this short and simple story about Peter, a writer who decided to stop his clubbing ways and get a surrogate to have his own family. When the unexpected twins are born, he goes to Alaska to get away from the city with his small family, totally unprepared. Then he meets Chad, [...]

    27. Review written for Love Bytes Reviews.This story was absolutely adorable! Peter is a single father of twins who, after being left by his partner, has moved out into the wilderness of Alaska so that his children can grow up surrounded by nature instead of buildings made of glass and steel. Just settling in, he meets Chad, the head Ranger for the park Peter is renting a cabin in. The two hit it off and Chad finds himself not only enticed by the single father but also enchanted by his children.Let [...]

    28. A Joyfully Jay review. 3.75 starsThis is a love-at-first-sight book. Peter’s ex took off before the arrival of the twins. After using his inheritance to pay for a surrogate, he doesn’t have a whole lot of extra money to invest in the rundown one-and-only home for sale in this part of Alaska. Though he has the means to move elsewhere, Peter insists that he wants his children to be able to enjoy nature.Chad grew up in foster care and dreamed of being a park ranger. Living in isolation in the A [...]

My Divine Magazine Reviews:divinemagazine/jreviews/my*copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie by author/publisher via Divine Magazine in exchange for an honest review*Ugh, I hate doing this, but I knew from the first paragraph I was going to hate this book, and I did. The characters were too syrupy sweet. Too perfect. Just, there was no excitement! Nothing happened. Babies, sex, more babies, more sex. Snow, colds, more babies and of course more sex! Sometimes insta love works. Here, not so much. This [...]
