I can only point to a few specific positives that led me to give this book three stars. One is the decent writing style; the author obviously has talent but the plot development in this novel seemed a little muddled. The sex scenes, while sometimes placed in odd and formulaic places, were hot and steamy. And despite my feeling that too much happened in this book, the author did keep everything tied together. However, there were too many things that just didn't work and kept this from becoming a novel that stood out in my mind for good reasons. Fans of Neil Plakcy may enjoy this book, but I haven't read any of his other novels and after this one, I'm not entirely inclined too either.
"Mi Amor" is about a preppy wasp, Adam Beller, who has fled the cold of the NJ suburbs (and the disapproving lectures of his parents) to create a dream life for himself in the warm gay sun of Miami Beach. Steeped in the heady gay world of pretty boys, easy sex and all-night parties, Adam has a good thing going.
Into Adam's simple, pleasure-driven life, steps Javier Marisco, favored son of a local Cubano family. Confident, mature, and successful, Javier is still trapped in the closet by his family's expectations and his own fears. Against his better judgment, Adam finds himself increasingly drawn to Javier.
As Adam's dream life begins to come unraveled, he is faced once again with his family's disapproval, and torn between his need to live independently and his emotional ties to the closeted Javier.
Coming out, growing up, having fun, being a man. Neil Plakcy gives his readers a gay romance, but not without asking questions that every gay man has to answer as he decides what his life will be.
