I won't read a book that doesn't contain a romance plot of one kind or another...

The Violet and the Tom - Eve Ocotillo 2.5 stars
Unlike the other two online m/m stories I've read, this is focused strictly on the romance, sex and dynamics between the main characters; not much of a plot otherwise. And I did find a few plot twists to be very convenient so that to ease the way between the heroes; I'd especially prefer the author to find another way to turn the tables instead of suddenly revealing that Sylvan used to be a dominant before they turned him into a submissive by force, which was something like an easy way out of their problem IMHO. Also, was in the mood for something angsty and this was supposed to be one based on GR readers, but for someone like me who loves heartwrenching romances with a passion, this didn't quite fall in this category I'm afraid. All in all, I find myself a bit disappointed, not because it wasn't good, but because it wasn't what I expected it to be.
