    A Hearts On Fire Review3.75 HEARTS--"Half a Man" by Scarlet Blackwell is a novella set in England after the end of WWI. The damaged soldiers and influenza scare help set the tone for this romance between a wheelchair bound ex-solider, Robert, and a rent boy/book shop worker, Jack.This is an interesting take on the "Pretty Woman" theme, you knowa prostitute with a heart of gold has a dashing wealthy man swoop in to ease their troubles with a fat cock and an even fatter wallet. The twist is:1) it' [...]

    I saw Half a Man on the Coming Soon list from Totally Bound, and when I skimmed the blurb, I immediately wanted to read it. I love historicals and I love characters with disabilities. I sometimes even love rent boys in my historicals. Sadly, I was a little annoyed when I later figured out this was a rerelease…I don’t even know if has been expanded or even edited…? Anyway, I started reading it late one night and stayed up ’til the wee hours of the morning because I could not put it down. [...]

    I loved this book, it starts so nice but in the middle things tends to go a bit astray, you can’t help but be anxious for the MCs future and the emotive parts between them. My interest was caught by the way they try to end the connection which is there between them and try to reject it and the way they are unable to succeed. Both characters make wrong presumptions and decisions but this is understandable because of the insecurities each of them are going through. I admit that Jack was making m [...]

    Robert, a crippled war veteran, hires rent boy Jack for companionship. Jack is younger and gorgeous, but what sets him apart from the average rent boy is that he went to university. He is well educated and can hold a conversation in high circles. Why is he selling his body? Because he couldn't find a well paid job. He is working part-time at a bookshop, but the salary is meagre. The rest of the time, he is a companion to rich men like Robert. He does not enjoy it much, but what's a guy to do?Rob [...]

    3.5 starsRobert is "half-a-man", bound in wheel-chair after a bullet hit him in the back during WW 1. His only way to achieve sexual satisfaction is to hire a companion. Comes in Jack, a rent-boy, who slowly gives Robert reason to care. This is another push/pull story from Scarlet Blackwell -- we have Robert who fears that he cannot give what Jack wants because of his condition, while Jack worries that he can't be in Robert's life because of his "profession". The balance between them is "smeared [...]

    A nice historical about a man eking out an inadequate income by working as a male companion and the paraplegic WWI vet for whom he's hired to provide his services. No real surprises, but very likable MC's.

    Your heart will be touched by the sincerity and longing that flows between Robert and Jack. They might start off as merely a rich man and his hired “help”, but the instant rapport goes well beyond the physical. There is a connection to these characters that feels so real, and I feel it is due to the emotional and physical trials they must try to overcome. I really enjoy stories that pull you in and keep you hanging on every word, and Ms. Blackwell provides a perfect example. Lototy Reviewer [...]

    The story was warm. I liked both main characters. Robert, even if being crippled veteran, was a sad person and you simply had to love him. Jack, a rent boy, made me a bit angry and confused with his feelings of denial. But in general, I have to say, this was well written emotional story and I really liked it. Highly recommend it on!

    Rather a touching premise, a tart with a heart and a man paralysed from the waist down. You don’t at first (or rather I didn’t) twig that Jack Anderson is a prostitute but I suppose these days he’d be called an escort. He provides companionship and relief if needed from discreet and wealthy men. He hasn’t been soured by his life as a renter, and is both professional and attentive.He’s called to the house of Robert Blake, who we discover is in a wheelchair. The two men meet once a week, [...]

    Fantastic story! It may be my favorite from Scarlet Blackwell so far!I loved Robert and my heart ached for him - for both his physical sufferings and his pain of losing the man he loved and I adored and respected him for his strength. And I liked Jack too, despite his profession he's very sympathetic character and quite a serious and considerate person. Those two is a good match and I'm glad Jack had finally overcome his doubts and accepted it.Although the ending was very satisfying I'd really l [...]

    Reviewed by Max: I think the idea behind this novel was a good one and there could have been a lot done with it, but unfortunately it fell flat for me.My problems started with the sex. It was explicit and I felt it was out of place in this story. I didn't buy the instant connection between Jack and Robert. Everything felt rushed and there's no need for that in a novel length story. Better developed characters, along with more subtle love scenes would have made this one a winner.Dmanohmanreviews/ [...]

    This would have been a 4-star rating because I enjoyed most of the story quite a bit. Post WWI isn't my preferred historical time period, but I enjoyed that aspect well enough. I'm also a sucker for a disabled hero. Naturally, both characters have bouts of self-recrimination and lashing out and pushing each other away. The smexing is hot. Everything is VERY well written. As a self-appointed member of the grammar police, I especially enjoy that. For this, I will look at other Scarlet Blackwell bo [...]

    4-1/2 StarsFollowers of my reviews now that I absolutely love historical tales so when I saw this was a post-WW1 story, I just hoovered it up as it's one of my favorite time periods. Having one of the main characters wheelchair bound drew me in too, my grandfather was in a wheelchair by the time I was born, he wasn't paralyzed but he couldn't walk(he had MS) so when I see a character like Robert, my interest is piqued even further. Throw in Jack, a book shop clerk/rent boy, doing what he has to [...]

    I surprised myself and enjoyed this book. Originally I was concerned because I accepted this reading challenge without realizing it was an M/M story. As I said in my first status update, I've read books with M/M scenes but never a book that was solely M/M.I enjoyed that I was brought through the emotions and passion that I would expect from any other romance. The loving was sweet and sexy. And the relationship was dear and real.Overall, very satisfied with this read.

    3.75 StarsThis book had everything going for it - rent-boy, WW1 vet - and while it was very well written, it just didn't quite gel for me. I can't quite put my finger on why, but I just didn't feel connected.

    Ambre
    This could have been really good, but one of the MCs was awful and the relationship was really unpleasant. You know, when someone has to apologize 20 times a 100 page book, it doesn't feel like romance, even when he miraculously changes in the last 10 pages.

    Gwendolyn
    This was a five star book until the middle and then it went to crap somehow. It doesn't even feel like the same characters of author after the party.
