      Poor Leone is not having a good day. Their mother found out their gender fluid, their best friend found out their in love with them, and to top it off, they just found out they can shapeshift into a leopard. On main street. In the middle of the day.This was cute and fluffy, and maybe a little rushed, but none of that is really important. What this really was, was a more realistic look at transgender and gender fluid characters with gender neural pronouns. And I'll admit that zhey and zheir were [...]

      Trans/genderqueer PoC shapeshifters, gender-neutral pronouns, and snarky snark“No. Sara. I don’t fight crocodiles. I mean, duh?”“I don’t know what trans people are into! What you guys do in your free time…” Sara scrunched her long, dark-brown hair with her fists. Her skin was the same golden olive as Leone’s, from their Peruvian American ancestry and mutual love for long sunbaths on the California shore.“We can assure you, the Venn diagram between large aquatic reptiles and the [...]

      Shifter stories are so not my thing, but the shifter storyline, for me, isn't the important aspect of this story. This is the first for-real queer romance I've read. At times it confused me, made me think and rethink and adjust preconceptions that, quite frankly, I'm pissed off to find I possess. Discursive deconstruction at work. 'Tis good, if not a little disconcerting.Thank you NK Layne, for this wonderful free story, and also to the rest of the Love is an Open Road team.

      This got two stars because I finished it.This was the most confusing story I have read in a very long time. I honestly am not sure what I just experienced. First, the ‘neutral pronouns’ they came up with are extremely confusing to follow. Yeah, I get why the author used them, but just to hard to follow. Leone is born a male but identifies as queer gender so doesn’t like to associate as being a male or female. Then we have Leone’s best friend, Mr. Fuck Buddy. Though what Ash is just as co [...]

      I had a very difficult time following the action. Both main characters are gender-neutral and use the same pronouns zhey. I respect the author using correct pronouns. It would have been easier for me if first names - Leone, Ash - had been used at least as often as zhey and zheir. If the pronouns used so heavily had both been he or she, I would have had as much difficulty. My problem wasn't with the pronouns, it was that I couldn't tell which person was doing or saying something.

      Quirky love story where things are not always what they seem to be.

      This would have been an amazing genderqueer coming out story. Instead, it read like a stream of consciousness. of a person on crack. The pronouns were okay. It was the inane chatter and jumping from one scene to another without explanation. I.e. Leone and Ash alone, talking then next morning waking up in different place, remembering. sex party. It was explained later but scene would have been much better depicted as events transpired. Then, there was figurative language that made no sense. Sente [...]

      This story was my prompt for the Love is an Open Road on the M/M Romance group's annual story prompt event.It wasn't what I imagined it would be but it was a great little story that had some really nice snarky comments. It also had a very good understanding of transgendered and genderfluid people. That to me was more important than the fact it wasn't what I imagined, after all if it was I might as well have tried to write it myself ;)

      This was a sweet story about a transgender couple. I enjoyed it, but it imo it would have been better if it was just about the trans couple and all they had gone through, instead of adding the shifter element. But it was a short, steamy, interesting read!
