Thanks for HEA after but more please.
I see a four book series, just them. Okay, a teeny bit on Bruce say one chapter in book three.
Mark is his savior, an slightly older, confident, and caring man. And what Scott can't quite believe is the almost immediate and intense attraction that Mark seems to have toward him.
This is a story about what their mutual interests and feelings have on the building of a strong relationship between them. They discover that they both have an inclination toward sex that includes mild bondage.
Where this leads them in their new relationship forms the premise for this well written, loving and surprisingly thought provoking story of two souls looking for the right partner and learning what each must give to make it work.
I found the issue of bondage, as used in this story, to be acceptable, never making me feel that anything more than an expression of love was being demonstrated. No whips. No chains. No flogging. Just the strength of a powerful emotion called love.
In recommending this book, I want to say that at no time did it make me feel uncomfortable. But, because bondage is a part of the lovemaking, I feel it necessary to mention it. Some readers may feel that this is outside of their comfort zone. With that said, it is truly a gentle and kind romantic story, written by an author who knows her craft very well.
I plodded painfully through this book. I love, love, love Sloan Parker but before I was even at 50% of the way through I kept asking myself who wrote this story? The characters and their interactions, emotions, who they really were all seemed wooden, forced and two dimensional. Was this an early work she dusted off and presented to the public? Was she distracted when she wrote this? I was trying to reconcile what I was reading to her other works.
This is really funny: right before the scene with Mark and Scott's paperback book I was thinking I wanted "More" both figuratively and literally. Those characters were developed. You could "see" who they were. And anyone who has read "The Break In" knows that Ms. Parker can pack a real evocative punch with very few pages.
I missed all of that in this book. The story line was good. So was grammar, punctuation, etc. This just had no spark. Nothing to rivet me and I found the characters very flat.
This one will not be a book to read over and over again...like I do several of her other works that are in my library. I will wait for the next one and hope for a better showing.
