Product Description

Product Description

Sitcom sensation Felix Medrano, America's Sweetheart, throws a star-studded surprise party for his sweetheart, beanpole barkeep Grover Shepherd.
It’s a smash, save for one detail: Shep is a no-show.
Who’d have thought it would be so hard to pop the question?

A perfect, delightful short story that tells the tale of Felix Medrano and Grover Shepherd, as Shep struggles to get home to Los Angeles from New Orleans.

Well written, funny and rather touching, the narrative is a series of Shep’s flashbacks as he thinks about the years he’s known Felix since they worked in a WeHo bar together as they were just starting out in LA. The anxiety level is cleverly raised by a surprise party Felix is hosting at which he intends to publicly ask Shep to marry him—a party Shep seems bound to miss due to the vagaries of travel in the modern world.

The art of writing a short story is giving the reader a solid whole in a small package, and Michael Thomas has done a super job here. It is rich in detail and character and filled with an honest love story.

Ha! Great opening paragraph. That’s how you grab a reader.

I adore the rhythm and attitude in this writing, energetic and funny, while remaining grounded. Within the first few pages, I already had a good idea about Felix and Shep, as well as the so-called supporting characters. You’ll see what I mean when you read this. Yep, I said ‘when’ and that’s what I meant.

”We’re at Pride, right? In Atlanta? Big ol’ country-lookin’ boy comes up to me, says, ‘You know what my shirt’s made of?’ I go, ‘What?’ He goes, ‘Boyfriend material.’ “

Feliz laughed. “He musta been fine.”

“You wanna know how find he was?”

“How fine was he?”

“He wasn’t even wearing a shirt, and I let him get away with that line.”

“What a pushover!”

Shep laughed with a shrug: Guilty.

Ha! Y’all need to read this story to find out the why, where, and how of the setting, circumstances, and funny of this exchange, and the much more that lies beyond it.

Life happens, you have crazy friends – the type who seem to always drag you into unexpected hilarity – and you hope you can still make it home on time. Most of all, you hope to make it in time to share that life with the person who still texts you in ancient text-style speak, who knows when you only want another sip of that whiskey, who knows when you need to hear what they want to say about you, about being together.

What a fantastically written story, excellent characterization, and a prime, hilarious, sexy example of how fabulous a short story can be.

You betcha, I recommend this! And I would read more by this author.

5.0 out of 5 stars I absolutely loved both Felix and Sheppy 6 February 2015

As written by Me at Saguaro Moon Reviews:

Say Cheese by Michael P. Thomas is a short story that premiered in the Anthology, Stranded, by Wayward Ink Publishing. Felix Medrano is the drop dead gorgeous actor wanna be from Hollywood who worked his way up to hitting it big in the smash sitcom known as Say Cheese. Grover Shepherd also known as Sheppy, a beanpole barkeep, is Felix’s sweetheart who is trying to make it back to home from New Orleans. While Felix is planning an engagement party where he’s planning to propose to Sheppy as a surprise, Sheppy keeps getting stranded in different airports along the way from New Orleans to Los Angeles. Will Grover Shepard make it home in time to be surprised or will he miss the party altogether leaving Felix alone and ditched?

Being an avid reader of short stories, novellas and full length novels, when I sat down to read Say Cheese, I was drawn into the story from the very beginning. I absolutely loved both Felix and Sheppy, who were very well developed as characters with their own personalities. Both were three dimensional in the way they were written. Even though this was a short story, the background of the two main characters were brought into the read giving just enough of a hint that you could follow along rather well without getting lost or confused as to where each one of them were coming from. While I have read shorts that have left me feeling as though something was missing, Say Cheese didn’t do that at all. There was also a surprise ending to the story which made me go Awwww.

The story gave me a nice taste of the author’s writing style. He obviously brought in his own knowledge and background of being a flight attendant into the book. The detail he went to in order to give the feel of what it would be like to be stranded in an airport trying desperately to get home as well as dealing with the public was astounding. I definitely would recommend Say Cheese to anyone who likes a good M/M story and wants to try out a new author that they haven’t had a chance to read yet. My only question is this. Michael? Are you going to make a full length novel out of this? Please??

I have to admit, I had already read this book, as part of the Stranded Anthology, but jumped at the chance to read it again as a standalone.

We meet the unlikely duo of Felix and Grover who is known as Shep. Felix is a well-known actor , loved by both ladies and men. Shep was the total opposite, who worked in a bar called Clarion, which is where they met.

Felix has planned a party, at which he decides he will ask Shep to marry him, but Shep is stuck in another state. Shep has no idea of what Felix has planned, as he frantically tries to get back home, it is like everything that can go wrong, does go wrong. You cannot help but laugh at all the things that do go wrong for him.

While Shep is trying to get home, Felix is sending pictures to him, who remembers all the details of every single picture – and you learn a lot about their life together….. from how they met, their first night together and Sheps true inner deep feelings.

Does Shep ever make it back to the party?? Does Felix get the chance to ask Shep to marry him?? Does Shep say “Yes” ??

All these questions will be answered in the book…… you will just have to buy it and see.
