    2. When I ordered this anthology I had a sneaking suspicion that it would be a set of stories about weddings - a subject I've never found terribly interesting, gay or straight. Instead I was treated to a set of twenty-two short stories about partnership and some of the issues around it, like dealing with step-families and deciding how long to stick with a less than satisfactory relationship. There is a wonderful mix of the historic and the contemporary, of romances and comedies, of erotica and bitt [...]

    3. “Turnabout” by Lee RowanIt’s Christmas morning and Lord Robert Scoville finally has a chance to relax and enjoy the day with his lover, Jack Darling. But can a relationship between a nobleman and his servant ever truly be equal?Journey into Victorian England with Lee Rowan’s “Turnabout.” Robert and Jack charmed me from the start and the love between them defies social status and “convention.” What I loved about “Turnabout” is that neither Robert nor Jack blatantly ignored the [...]

    4. I Do Two is the sequel to the successful and popular anthology to benefit the Lambda Legal Defense. New and repeat authors have joined forces to offer a packed collection of stories celebrating all facets of LGBT. Included are 22 stories of love, sex, and marriage from historical to contemporary with humor, whimsy, sadness and hope. Above all this anthology is a celebration of love and passion between LGBT people. There is sure to be something for everyone and with the great benefit to buying th [...]

    5. Even Guys Cry by D.C. JurisThis short story stands out in the I Do, Two anthology. It is a touching and tendor love story of self acceptance. D.C. Juris has written it with a sublime balance of vulnerability, strength, sex & humor. I found myself laughing and then crying within the same paragraphs. It unveiled the mysteries of a transgender male as the character was laid bare and revealed in a loving moving story. I look forward to reading more by D.C. Juris.

    6. The second in the wonderful equality project created by Alex Beecroft. Less explicit but with a wonderful mix of GLB and the oft-neglected T characters, by writers of all persuasions and many nationalities. Real diversity in the service of equality, all profits go to Lambda Legal to carry on the fight for equal marriage rights.

    7. Full disclosure, I'm in this book - but let me further preface a little to chat a bit about the purpose of I DO TWO. Right on the bright cover, it subtitles itself with "An anthology in support of marriage equality." I'm going to say it once again, before I begin - I am truly blessed to live in a country where my husband and I are just that: husbands. In every legal definition thereof.I loved this collection (I'm stunned at the company I'm keeping), and have to point out my favorites of the anth [...]

    8. It's always a puzzle how to review a book in whichyou have a story. Naturally, any author worth his/her salt is going to think her story is the best. We're just made that way! Mine is a historical that combines realism and fantasy. ("The Legend of the Mountain Ash")The length, subject, style, and heat level in the collection, vary wildly from story to story, as you would expect with this many authors. Some stories are going to appeal to one person and some stories appeal to someone else. There a [...]

    9. I skipped stories from authors that rate all their books. It's not the case with those that only rate antologies; I still don't like it but I can understand it like a recognition to their co-authors.The Legend of Mountain Ash by Ruth Sims - 3 stars Inner Truth by Alex Beecroft - 2 stars Turnabout by Lee Rowan - 2,5 starsUnder the Shadow of Your Wings by Gillian Palmer. - 2 stars Home Cooking by Brian Holiday - 4 stars Mister Right by Rob Rosen - Skipped Two Men: A Fugue by Sophia Deri-Bowen - 5 [...]

    10. I loved this anthology! Each story was unique and well written. There was also a good mix of FF, trans, teens stories/POVs, LGBTQ families with children, funny, serious, sad, romantic, oddball, and insanely happy stories. At least two were follow ups to novels I'd previously read, which was nice. Over all, a fantastic read and even better than the first anthology by the same name, which I recall having mixed feelings about.

    11. Some real gems; while the anthology is not a style of reading I particularly enjoy, both Alex Beecroft's lovely slice of life and Neil Plakcy's dip into his protoganist's partner's point of view made this whole book a very pleasant read.
