My View – Story:
I enjoyed this audiobook. Despite Keeping Sweets revolving around porn stars and set during a porn shoot, the author was able to maintain the overall innocence and romance of Evan and Brandon’s story. That was not something I was expecting, but it was something I was grateful for.
Keeping Sweets is a story of two men both searching for that something missing in their life. For Evan, this is a coming of age and sexual awakening story. He is figuring out who he is and who he wants to be. However, unlike most coming of age stories, Evan is discovering himself on the set of a porn shoot. He confirms his sexuality at the interview, loses his virginity on set, he finds his first love in a fellow porn star. At the start Evan is hero worshiping Brandon who is his first sexual experience. He worries that his attachment is simply because of that fact and not real. But in the end, the hero worship remains and Brandon becomes his first love.
For Brandon, this is an emotional awakening story. He has had all the sex he could want as a porn star, but none of that emotional connection a true love needs. Brandon is 10 years older than Evan and while he is very attracted to him, he is almost like a protective adult figure, guiding him through the big bad world of porn while trying to maintain his innocence as much as possible. While I was a bit worried about it at first, the age gap with Evan being SO young and innocent, I often forgot that age gap existed especially when the men were together. For all his age and pron wisdom, Brandon is a bit of an innocent as well having never really been in a successful emotional and sexual relationship off screen. I did feel like Brandon’s side of the romance was not as well explained as Evan’s and I still wonder exactly why Brandon fell in love so quickly.
I enjoyed watching the men navigate their new emotions and the way those emotions manifested as sexual tension. Never once did I not think sex would not be used as a metaphor for love in this particular story. The author couldn’t help it with the setup she presented. I don’t usually care for this, but in this case it was expected and felt right for this story. I loved the scene when Brandon claimed Evan for all the other men to see. It was raw and emotional and HOT.
Of course there was the big angst moment that lead to Brandon getting his head out of his ass and going after what he wanted in life. He finally realized what he was worth and that Evan was for him. The ending was very HFN and left me wondering if these men will truly make it. Is this relationship destined to be Evan’s first grand romance or will they defy the odds and stay together forever? I don’t know, but I would be willing to read about them again to find out. I would also like Colt’s story. Will we get Colt’s story? Please?
My View – Narration:
Jeff Gelder did a great job on this narration. He did a great job with the characters and I really like that he nailed Evan’s naivete and uncertainties.
Now wit that being said I thought the reason for them not being together was kind of stupid.. I thought she could have given them some real conflict...the reason she did give was just weak to me... And after seeing how much they loved each other and you felt that love I'm just like why such a weak reason.. I won't go into details because I don't want to spoil the read... I will say read it and form your own opinion...
At his initial interview he meets the guy who will be his mentor, and co- star, Brandon/Bran a.k.a Noah. Bran feels an instant attraction and protectiveness for the younger, smaller man.
Bran takes Evan under his wing, and they slowly fall for each other. Will Bran and Evan give into the feelings they have for one another, and what happens when it's time for Evan to be put to work and have sex with another actor? How will Bran handle this?
First things first.. This book was smoking HOT! It was also sweet and loving as well. I loved the MC's. They had great chemistry and really connected. The book was well written. It flowed well and was easy to read. I highly recommend this book.
This is my first read by this author, but I will be checking out more of her work in the future!
