Black Velvet introduces us to Alyson “Aly” Urban, a fairly self-contained young woman with an interest in sexuality and developing her own sexuality, whether alone or with a partner. The story is very much about Aly’s sexual exploration which leads her to an emotional and psychological exploration and awakening also. Aly is a virgin whose sexuality plays an important role in her life and lifestyle.
In the beginning, she criticizes her roommate, Tawnya, for her over-dependence on her boyfriend, emotionally, physically and psychologically (from what we can tell), but by the end of the story Aly has come to a greater understanding of Tawnya and her motivations.
Aly’s thinking often comes across as clichéd, especially in regards to sex and relationships, but given that she’s never been in a sexual relationship with anyone before and is a young woman, I think this is understandable.
By the end, she has abandoned some of her “high standards,” though not all. The interesting part to note, however, is that, in the end, she chooses to lead with her physical side rather than her psychological and emotional sides, concluding that “I guess we all have our needs.”
I didn’t mind Black Velvet, I just found it lacking in a certain… pizzazz. It was an interesting story, though I didn’t necessarily agree with Aly’s final decision. I understood it, but I guess I wondered – based on her thoughts regarding Christian’s girlfriend – if she wasn’t denying her emotional and psychological reactions in favor of her physical ones because anything else would mean a lot of extra complication she wasn’t yet ready to tackle / handle.Read more ›
Thanks for the effort. Great Job!
Kinda boring, and dissapointing. It had some good parts... but it really isn't a book for me.
