*Exposure (MLR Press, 2011)
When 23 year-old Jeremy Trask wanders into Martin Lewis’ photography studio one bleak October day and requests photos for a modeling portfolio, neither man is prepared for the immediate and intense attraction between them. What follows is a series of progressively intimate encounters that leads them on a scintillating erotic journey together. But Jeremy has a secret. Will his revelation destroy the bourgeoning intimacy between them? Or will Martin rise to the challenge of loving a ‘less than perfect’ man?
“Exposure” is the excellent debut from author Elizabeth Lister, a sensual and thoroughly seductive novella narrated by Martin Lewis, a thirty-two year old photographer who has a one o’clock appointment with destiny. What it lacks in word count, it makes up for in emotion, passion, and its courageous and captivating characters.

*The Crush (MLR Press, 2011)
Jack Claridge’s sister, Amy, has a big crush on her English professor, Michael Donovan. When Jack agrees to accompany her on an outing with the object of her affection, the last thing he expects is the professor’s reaction to him. One surreptitious hand-job later and Michael is hooked. But will Jack ‘use him and lose him’ or does Jack care for the professor more than he thinks? And what will he tell Amy?
I was impressed that the author was able to pull out so many emotions in such a short story. The dynamics in Jack and Michael’s relationship and Jack and Amy’s relationship were amazing, and the characters were so much fun.
