|Reviews for In places least expected|
| Guest chapter 21 . 11/21/2018
In places least expected is some of the best fiction I've read on this site. Hurray for Aussie fiction, grounded interesting characters and fishing trips(har har). A Decent plot that is well paced and concludes with all the warm fuzzys that weren't expected but make you smile. Also fuck Jackie that snaphappy wanker

Thanks for the read. I have to admit that I kind of hate Carmine. Shay, on the other hand, is a doll.

Loved this. Shay was just so sweet and I just had so much feelings. Carmine had so much to sort through but I can see what was going on in his head. This is definitely going into my favorites.

hello Prince max
Is there any chance of sequel for this story ? I love both Shay and Carmine. It is a great story.
Thank you for writing and posting it. :)

Oh wow, this was great. I had to walk away for a bit when Carmine first did the whole gossiping about Shay to Jackie thing, but I love how you didn't turn it into a massive drama. This was just a really good story about two guys awkwardly getting together. :)

I really like this story! I'm glad Jackie, that jackass, is out of the picture. Or is he?

Aww I really like your stories. They are so real. And I love how you're characters are adult and experienced because there are limits as to how many high school romance stories I can be bothered to read. Your writings are mature, realistic and well-written. I really enjoy them.

as i read this, i kept waiting for the tragic end, and i'm so happy it never came! generally this isn't the type of story i would read, i like to read fluffy stuff and just forget about everything for a while. several times i while reading this i thought abot stopping and doing something else (cause i was afraid of how it would end) but it just grabbed my attention. now that i know how it ends i'm glad, even though you mention quite a few depressing things, the tone of the story didn't make me sad in the least. i loved how you wrote about how carmine felt about shay. how awkward it was, and how he just couldn't make up his mind, it just made it so real. thank you for posting it!

how did gray take advantage of him if he was protected by shane?

Thank you for writing this!
I was getting so angry at all the teenage, superficial and completely removed from reality stories. Finally some slash that has some real life in it and isn't just erotica or filled with stereotypes.
Your characters were real persons, stupid, prone to mistakes, forever changing their minds and unable to accept certain things. Their problems were real, not just silly misunderstandings, but rather situations that were brought on by their personality and past experience.

You know, I think it's a curse that the good stories can only be read at night and can only end when my eyes BURN from the lights on my pc. Maybe.
I can bet that's probably the weirdest start to a review you've ever gotten, eh?
I loved this story. I had Shay pinned for the gifts from the very beginning, mind, but that's because I instantly liked him for some reason. All in all, it was a unique story, which is increasingly harder to find, mind you. It was well written, the plot was good, and best of all, it was realistic. There have been tons of stories that are great but they idolize they're characters and it's just...no. But these charies were real and great!
There were a few problems, nothing major of course. Mostly slight grammatical errors that aren't chalked up to me being an American and not knowing how to read it right. lol.
Anyway, it as good. Great, even. Loved it.
And now that I have only a handful of hours to sleep before I have to go to work, I bid you a goodnight.

Thanks for finishing it!

This is a bit different from your average released from prison story. I hope it all works out in the end.

No no no no no no NO! I just wrote a long-ass review for this story and then I managed to re-click the 'Review Story' button which in turn deleted all the work to a place where it cannot be undone from the undo button. I really feel like swearing right now. I am major kick-ass tired that I can barely keep my eyes open and I really know that this story deserves a much better review than this but seriously! Gimme a break! I'm tired! And...my boyfriend does not deserve me being such a crap girlfriend right now. He's so sweet and just a complete parallel universe person to the guys I've dated before and I know that sounds so cliché but I'm tired right now and I always spill my guts when I'm tired. Sorta like I'm drunk though I haven't drank any alcohol. Even when I'm smashed I'm not as open as I am now. Which sucks. Because I don't have a liable excuse that I WOULD have had if I'd have been drunk right now. I like to be me and that's different than everyone else but could I not just be a bad drunk? Rather than a bad tired? Did that even make SENSE? I'm a crap crap girlfriend. Kyler is this really sweet guy that deserves a better fucking girlfriend. Sorry. I don't usually swear when I don't know how old the person is that I'm talking to. You're probably thirteen. It seems that a lot of thirteen girls enjoy writing slash :) But if you are you write amazingly good. Better than a lot of people, a lot of published authors. So. I’m extremely sorry about the crappiness of this review. I’ll write you a better one when I have time. No. I won’t. I’ll forget to or won’t find the time to. I’ll write it now. But I hope you realise you are forcing a poor girl to review in favour of sleep. Haha. I’m just kidding. I want to. I’ve written reviews for less better stories so I’ll write a one for yours. Considering it was really good. And taking in the fact that you finished this a couple years ago and your writing will probably be better now as does happen. But it was really good. I loved Shay’s character! He was just so annoyingly nice. In a good way, though. And I felt so sorry for him when they dated the first time round. I hated Jackie’s ass with a passion. I liked Carmine. He had his dick-head moments but redeemed himself in the end. The one thing I noticed was that the fact that Carmine had told Jackie about Shay not being able to read or write. Usually all the dirty secrets come out in fiction, and reality too. So I was a bit confused at that not happening. Sorta expected it to as soon as the words left Carmine’s mouth. You’re a really good writer. I loved this story. Right now I should really sort out my favourite stories on this thing because when I first started this I just clicked the full four boxes whenever I’d review. And, like I said, I’ve reviewed some poor stories. But don’t worry haha, I’m a more evolved creature now. No regrets in ticking them all for this story. But I should delete all the rubbish ones. Bye.
