About the Author
Author Bio : Brian C. Copper is an author that resides with his partner in a quiet suburb to the south of Boston, Massachusetts. A perpetual people watcher, many of his observations find their way into his characters. His first foray into writing takes place in a fictional small town in New England and touches upon several BDSM themes. When asked if the book is based on actual events, Brian is quick to reply, "I never go anywhere without a set of handcuffs."

David the main character is at first glimpse someone I didn’t particularly like, he is so comfortable in his own mind/body and is an excellent Dom. Maybe from a female perspective I found him ‘cruel’ in his approach but as the events move on I actually grew to like him and respected the way he dealt with each of his clients. Each has their own fantasy, need and David tends to withdraw feelings from them that they weren’t aware of, while fulfilling their own personal growth.
The main focus is on him and Max, the patrol-man who happens to get caught in a blizzard and winds up ‘captive’ at David’s house. This is when we are introduced to the ‘room’. Some of the actions in there could be described as brutal to the uninitiated but these are two consenting adults and the writing is exceptional in keeping the reader glued while cringing at the same time. If this were a movie my hands would be well placed in front of my eyes! I went through so many emotions based on Max’s experiences and finished the book feeling a lot more enlightened!
The author also cleverly introduces other characters who all have connections to David and the room and it all adds up nicely at the end. I really struggle to say I enjoyed it because that feels rather trite with the subject matter but as a work of fiction the skill of the author and the ability to keep me eager to continue it was excellent. It’s rare to find a book that you really can’t put down but this is one of them.
Many thanks to Brian, this is my honest opinion and I can’t wait to read some more of his work.
The structure of the novel was a bit jarring at first, but once you settle in and understand how it's being told, it flows quite nicely. The primary plot thread involves the slow seduction and mastery of Max, a policeman stranded by the snowstorm, but there other men (and other relationships) woven into the story as we go along. These side-sessions, so to speak, do as much to build upon the mystery as they do to reveal anything about David. It soon becomes apparent that he is a man with a wide influence, and one who is just as adept at casually dominating in public as erotically dominating in his well-equipped basement dungeon.
This is what I would call erotica for the mind, a story that plays with thoughts and emotions, but which is half over before there's any actual sex. There is a lot of sensuality before that point, all wrapped up in a heavy power-exchange, but it's not the kind of whips-and-chains domination you might expect. Again, a lot of what David does it all in the head, testing his subjects' senses to see what they are willing to endure in his name. For instance, there is a prolonged scene that involves nothing more than extremes of temperature, but it is powerfully done. The Room itself is far more than just a dungeon playroom, it is also something akin to an interrogation room or a cell, albeit one where cruelty and compassion are intimately intertwined. Again, it plays against expectations, making you question your assumptions about these encounters, but its influence creates some genuine romance and long-lasting friendships.
Make no mistake, this is an erotic novel involving heavy-duty scenes of bondage-and-domination between men. However, all questions of eroticism and arousal aside, as a story . . . a character study . . . and a drama, The Room is surprisingly engaging.
Now, on to the content....
I'm not really sure how to articulate my take of The Room. I guess that the only thing that I need to say is that although, for me, some of the content came across as cringe-worthy and brutal I found myself needing to know what would happen next. Explicit homosexual encounters may not get me all hot and bothered, but I can confidently say that for those who prefer that type of thing this book will not disappoint.
