I’ve read a M/M romance before, but it was nothing compared to this. Nicole is unafraid to push the envelope, her delivery is wholehearted, and she just tells her story like it is… dirty, gritty and erotic. Allow me to reiterate that this story is INCREDIBLY hot. I dared think I could pull the STRAIGHT GIRL move at first and try to picture one of the men as a woman. Nope. Did not work. The incredibly descriptive act of body parts touching just does not allow for it.
This story is not for the faint of heart or the scared of anal sex or swapping of bodily fluids. Hah! Yeah, I said it. This is M/M erotica, people! Did you really need the warning? If you want to read the synopsis, you’ll have to get that from Amazon. You can click the cover image for that. 🙂
After having read The Hidden Child novella about Jamie in his youth, I think it only made me understand his history better. When other readers were in the dark, I had gained insight into why Jamie acts the way he does. His childhood was truly horrific. (That’s another goodread you should consider before starting this one.)
My Italian stud-muffin, Valerio, is so unsure of himself, conflicted and just plain gorgeous. Poor gent. He hasn’t come out of the closet yet, but Jamie brings out a desire like he’s never before felt. It was neat how the author had me believing that Valerio would slip into his native tongue, although every word in this book reads in English. Very creative. I liked that.
Then there’s Scot. I admit it: I really DID NOT like him in the beginning. Then again I don’t think I was supposed to. That boy really grew on me, I tell ya. I hurt for him.
The story is long, and I read slow, but I had no trouble plowing right through this one. Pardon the pun. 😉 But seriously, there really is A LOT of sex in this story. If you’ve ever stated in a review, “I’m not a prude, but…” then stop right there. But if you can appreciate a long series about a hoard of handsome, sex-crazed men who scratch and claw through their relationships, hiding from themselves and their pasts, then this should become next up on your to-read list.
