Tor (WereWolf Fight League) by Lynn Lorenz
Publisher: Loose Id LLC (April 2, 2012)
Amazon Kindle: Tor (WereWolf Fight League)

To the Werewolf Fight League, Tor is a champion fighter. To his master, he’s nothing more than a slave. When Tor’s mate Jin is killed in a brutal cage fight, Tor never wants to fight again. His master, Marrack has other plans for him.

Sky is a beautiful young sex slave, trained to perform sex on whoever buys him. But Sky is special; he’s a virgin and the man who owns him will be very lucky to be the first.

When Marrack buys Sky for Tor, his plan to get Tor back in the cage is set in motion. How could the big were resist mating the beautiful boy? Marrack has one month to get Tor back into shape and fighting again. Everything is riding on this --Tor’s reputation, Sky’s freedom, and Marrack’s money.

Will Tor find love again with a slave boy, or will Tor be betrayed by his new mate?

From novel to movie

This is a game I would like to play with all my friends. Have you ever read a book, and in the end your lasting feeling was, How I'd like to see this made into a movie?, I bet you have, and so I want to hear you. The game is simple, lets assume we have a limited budget, so of course we cannot do the millionaire budget Sci-Fi/Paranormal blockbuster, but we can do a comedy, a contemporary story, something with 2/3 local setting. Movies like: STRAPPED (2010); REDWOODS (2009); HOLLYWOOD JE T’AIME (2009); LATTER DAYS (2003); MAKE THE YULETIDE GAY (2009); THE TRIP (2002). We want a fun, romantic story, a good story about love, community and friendship.

Of course I did the same game in my mind and I came out with some ideas (some novels that I know were born as screenplays, for example); plus I thought, well, we have a good source, the Rainbow Awards! Why don't consider all the last 3 years winners in the Contemporary, Coming of Age/Young Adult, Mystery/Thriller and Romance categories (I did remove some title with International location or Historical setting due to the "local" requirement)? So I have a poll you can use, but I will also leave 1 open answer, so that you can add a title if you like. And I would much appreciate if you also leave a comment, explaining why you think your suggestion is good, if it's matching the requirements, and so on so far. Actually it's not really important how many votes 1 entry will receive, it's more important that the vote is rightly motivated.

Remember this is a fun game, no competition here, it's only to braimstorming our minds together ;-) But well, Somthing Like Summer by Jay Bell WILL be made into a movie, so dreaming is not impossible.
