Can I have them too??
Have to say this has become a one click Author for me, the depth and story pulls me right in and the sexy parts are just a cherry on top of a huge book sundae I devoured in one read.
Trent is a divorced father of two teenaged daughters, with a demanding ex-wife who has zero respect for boundaries. He’s always considered himself to be heterosexual and is confused by his attraction to Max. As he has several close friends who are gay, it’s not a matter of homophobia, but rather not what he understands himself to be. He’s never been attracted to men before Max, so he doesn’t really understand why he has feelings for him. I thought that part of the story was handled thoughtfully and felt authentic to me. My two biggest issues were with the editing and Trish, Trent’s ex-wife. I am a detail loving reader. I like details and I like them to make sense as far as the plot and other elements of the story are concerned. They also need to make sense in a realistic way, and they need to flesh out the story or characters while moving the plot forward. Primary Seduction had way too many details, even for me. For example, how Max spent his day (detailed descriptions of the clients and jobs) on appointments with clients is completely unnecessary to the plot and the story really gets bogged down. An editor with a bit of a heavy hand could tighten up this story and move it along at a far better pace. But Trish is the real issue for me. She is every stereotype of an evil ex, all rolled into one. She is more of a caricature than a character. Trent is taken advantage of by her at every turn, which didn’t make any sense to me since his brother is a divorce attorney (who he sends a friend to for legal advice). I struggled to buy into the terms of his divorce, custody agreement, support, etc. There were so many red flags with this woman; Trent just didn’t see them or ignored them, but he basically let her steamroll him until he finally stood up to her. He was a very smart, kind, caring man in all other aspects of his life, but when it came to his ex-wife, he just came across as naïve and clueless. It would be one thing if she were just a garden variety nasty ex, but she’s over the top and no one seems to notice or to do anything other than dance to her tune. I would have liked the story more if her character had been handled with a little more subtlety which would have made Trent’s gullibility more believable, too.
I’m not sure I’ll read more by this author, but I certainly wouldn’t rule it out, either.

The writing is well-done and the style is refreshing. This is the first book I've read by Elouise East, but it won't be my last. I loved the emotion, the plot, and everything else. Before you think this has been done before, yes, we've all seen the straight to gay, gay for you, etc tropes, but this was a breath of fresh air and I don't want to give too much away. I will say that it's probably not what you expect, the author does a great job of putting us in the middle of her storyline so we can see everything as it plays out.
