Book Description

Is Werner as cutthroat in his sex life as he is in business? He is everything men want and more than they can handle. But he has an appetite for younger men who are too vulnerable for his kinds of games.

Werner didn't know he was looking for the perfect man, but he knows he found him in Lyle. He has Lyle in his bed. Will he realize he needs him in his life, or will his ruthlessness win out?

5.0 out of 5 stars painful and unyielding August 6, 2012

More psychological study than erotic short story this is a work I hated intensely: Mr Hess is actually exceedingly good at creating with scalpel-like precision a setting -a ruthless dance of knives among corporate managers- and a character -so utterly flawed- as to have me squirm with unease.

Set aside any hope for the light-hearted erotica I favour (forget the blurb: there is plenty of sex here but it is as far from erotica as one could imagine) I was plunged head first in the workings of Werner's mind.
Without being didactic Mr Hess portrays a shark (or wolf) whose sharp teeth and world-savvy hide someone looking for happiness as much as the next man but he does not stop there for that would be too simplistic; Werner is also selfish and ruled by his own instincts of aggression. Curiously enough he comes out as sort of a spoilt brat: he is utterly arrogant and self centred, too much so to be honest with his lovers and with himself. He hurts them and himself and is too blind to understand where he did go wrong.
By creating such a character Mr Hess hits too close for comfort. I have no insider knowledge of corporate backstabbing but that sort of behaviour has unfortunately rubbed off on many levels on our everyday lives and I believe many of us can relate with the mayhem it causes.
Through Lyle, Werner finally comes to see things for what they are, he evolves and grows up and we are even given a happy ending of sorts (a big plus in my book, of course).

My only relevant issue with this work lies with the character of Lyle that is not as fully rounded as one could wish. Of course this may depend on the POV belonging exclusively to Werner, but I could never understand what he saw in the other man.
