*The first male-male encounter is incredibly long and well-detailed.
*The men from that tryst get it on many other times, but it is summed up in a sentence or two.
*At some point, the couple may drift apart and do things with someone else. When that happens, you can count on more detail again, although it still won't equal the first scene.
So if you are coming to Merrick for erotica, you will find the majority of it within the first 25% of the book. Having said that, I found the first full encounter between main characters Rod and Patrice to be quite beautiful. More so than any love scene I have read in any other book, ever. The ebb and flow of it is pitch perfect.
As for the rest of the novel, Merrick's prose is never less than passable. Maybe not his finest, as there were parts I struggled to read, whereas I coasted through THE LORD WON'T MIND and FORTH INTO LIGHT. Still, for that first love scene with Rod and Patrice alone, it deserves to be read.
The story of two excessively sexy and talented men who finally find true love in each others arms had me quaking. Sure, this is not great literature. It is, in fact, a bodice-ripper without the bodices. But when you are a young man living in a steel town in southwestern Ohio, you can be blown away by a book where true love between men wins out.
This book has some of the faults of the genre. Everyone is beautiful, sexy and constantly aroused. You can telegraph the ending ten pages into it. The obstacles to getting to the ending can sometimes seem far-fetched. But obviously the most important thing is the underlying romance.
A bit of a period piece now as the action is set in pre-AIDS times. But still worth the price of admission. And if you happen to be reading a used copy with an "M" (for mature) written into the top of the pages, just smile and think of me.
