Zachary, Logan.”Calendar Boys”, Bold Strokes Books, 2012.
All of us have done it—look at those monthly pin ups that come regularly in magazines and that take a twist in this very clever book. Cleverly arranged month by month, we get the stories behind the pictures (that we do not see) and each of them is well written. I quote from the back cover since it is so well done.
“Over the years, boys grew up sneaking peeks at the Calendar Girls when their fathers brought the family car in for service, while others saw them in Dad’s garage working on projects around the house. But now it’s man’s turn to be the object of desire. Hot young men caught each month, a man a month, who could want anything else?
‘Calendar Boys’ celebrates each month with a unique story. January’s “Pucking Prince Charming” finds a fairy tale with a happy ending in the hockey rink. While St. Valentine’s Day Massacre gangsters help a couple find lost gold and love in “The Grandfather.” March Madness comes in like a lamb, but goes out like a lion when a silly bet forces a player into “Taking It For The Team.” Zombies come out with April showers in “Jay Of The Dead.” The hot, humid, dog days of summer sees the “Lumber Jack Off,” while fall horrors wait at a haunted frat house with a “Halloween Hard On,” but the year isn’t complete until “Santa’s Big Package” arrives.
Four special seasons fill out the year, adding extra action and a lot more hot men. You have to love the Calendar Boys, each and every day of the year”…
Sure, it is fluff but it is fun fluff and there is nothing wrong with just sitting back and enjoying a book. This is the perfect beach read and if you do not go to the beach that is also fine. Just read it somewhere.
