This was such an interesting book. It’s one of those stories where there are many strands, all woven together – no more like a plant with shoots flying out all over the place, sometimes winding around other shoots and sometimes turning around and weaving themselves together in surprising way.
I can’t deny there were times when I lost my place a little as the book tends to skip large periods of time with only a scene break. I found this a bit distracting and, more than once, I was confused about when and where the action was taking place. This was not, however enough to turn me off the story.
I really enjoyed the characters in this because they weren’t perfect.
Austin is severely damaged by experiences that make it difficult for him to have sex and culminate in his mother’s suicide. Dylan is a porn star and an almost recovering alcoholic, Amy is in love with Lianne, hiding it by throwing herself at men, and Lianne is in love with an assassin. They’re all beautifully screwed up.
Austin (Aka Teeny Aka Oz) is my favourite character. He’s damaged and thinks himself weak and pathetic, but he’s not. Just to have kept his sanity and got to where he is proves he’s stronger than he thinks. He’s always thinking of other people and taking responsibility for everyone’s lives. I see a lot of myself in him, which I probably why I empathise.
Dylan is a rock. He’s also flawed, but he’d far more stable and sound than Austin and despite a few false starts he’s steady in his love and support.
Amy and Lianne are hilarious. They are clearly the best of friends. In the beginning, Amy is…to say she throws herself at men is an understatement. When Austin first meets her, she pins him to the sofa and rubs her boobs in his face (Oh no, not boobs! Austin hates boobs, at least when they’re being rubbed on his body).
There are other bit-part actors (probably recruited by Trev through the magic of porn) and they’re all well drawn and vivid.
The story is generally well paced, although it has a habit of speeding up at times, and making time jumps which catch you unawares.
All in all, this is a sometimes frustrating but always entertaining book and is thoroughly a romance through and through with not too many bad things happening and a lot of angsty kissing
What a strong and captivating start of this story...
Austin working hard at a bar just to keep his and his moms head up.
He hates is when it's almost closing time because then his personal tormentor will approach from behind.....
He is living with his mom and when he gets home after.....his nightmare just continues....on and on it goes.
He has to leave town...no way he can stay... running.....barefooted....
That's the place where his only family lives.....not....
So...Denver....no money...no home....no shoes....no nothing
Then he meets Dylan
Dylan's car gets bashed by two guys and Austin jumps in...injuries his feet by the glass and Dylan give him some first aid. When Austin looks in his bright emerald eyes.....
One way or another they just keep meeting each other...
Damn.. there is a lot of story I will not give away, please read it yourself
Family business, work, weekends off, party's....friends...and.... enemies
His cousin Liana and here roommate Amy take also a great part in this journey. Two funny crazy adorable woman...always bitching, friends to the bones.
It's getting complicated, there are mixed feelings and lies you wouldn't have guessed.
Dylan as a pornstar, looks and acts like a man but he is more complex than a bunch of wires, also a bit unstable and unpredictable now and then...
And Austin damn so timid and to much thinking instead to speak up for himself, it made me sad. He is such a sweet guy....but he really has to be honest...all those lies...yes unwilling but still.
Again a lot of story, turns you wouldn't expect. All entertaining.
I loved the writing style, the way the words are put together, real, raw and somehow sweet. Austin and Dylan flawed and damaged and so endearing. Dylan struggling with words and feelings around Austin..
The story started real strong and stayed steady, in the middle a tiny bit less, maybe because it was a lot to handle, and then again stronger. Really a captivating story with unexpected turns.
And for the ones who can't live without it (me..me :) they have their HEA, thank god *wipe sweat from forehead*
I really loved this complicated story and will look for other books by this author
