The romance was a bit unusual for me – not because there was not many sex scenes and none very explicit s – if you read my reviews before you may know that more often than not I prefer romances with less explicit sex rather than more. No, it is just for quite a while in the story I thought that the guys (mostly Ryan) were clueless as to what they want and whether they want their relationship to advance beyond friendship. But then I decided that Ryan craved emotional intimacy with Adam more than he craved sex with him – and only when he finally was satisfied with where their friendship was, he was shown to want actual sex with him. That was my interpretation anyway and of course there was an actual crisis during which Ryan seemed to put everything else on a long hold and that made sense to me.
I really do not want to give away what the crisis was because this is the only thing in the story which could be considered not character based plot development in my opinion, but it made me bowl my eyes out. In fact if I could do spoiler tags I would even issue a warning because just reading about did a number on me.
I really loved these guys but I have to admit that despite an excellent writing and happy ending I doubt I will be rereading this book anytime soon.
In fact the love of David for Jonathan , or was it the other way round , is referred to as a love which was better than the love of a woman for a man. Rather interesting that such a reference can be found in the Old Testament I might add . So please keep on writing such stories Chase. You well describe intimacy in a way that suggests you have experienced such. If not, its a deep desire within and one I believe in tune with the biblical friendship between David and Jonathan though of course one cannot necessarily read the relationship between David and Jonathan as one that included sex. David and Jonathan's friendship developed against the backdrop of a tragic unfolding event as well , namely the growing insanity of Jonathans father . Again please keep on writing. I look forward to your next book .
But I recommend this book to others for something far different: the extraordinary writing. This author has a facility with words that is nearly unmatched by today's gay writers (Ethan Mordden comes to mind as one of the few whose brilliance match this author's). Mr Potter writes with clarity and a directness that should be celebrated by bibliophiles of all persuasions. His plotting is careful and precise, his dialog true, the emotions of the characters profound and believable.
If other readers are anything like me, they will be angry, as was I, when the book ends. I had grown to love every member of this limited cast, though primarily the two principal protagonists, and didn't want the story to be over. It took me two days to finish this book (one does need to work and sleep occasionally), yet I felt as though I'd known these people for years. They were my friends and I hated saying goodbye. I would complain that I didn't even get a hug, but the entire book was a hug.
The book blurb tells what prospective readers need to know to determine whether the plot or subject matter will interest them, so I need mention none of that here; this is not, after all, a book report. What I WILL say is that this is an experience I will not soon forget—if ever.
