This sort story had a plot in between the horniness of all the male characters. The tutor, Frederick is only 22, an orphan and getting shafted (ha!) by life. He's broke and still carries a torch for his first and only (?) male lover, William. (That was the impression) In a day, they reunite,
everyone still wants a piece of William and his hot ass. All systems seem to be on board for massive shagging between the main players because of their reunion.
This is where the story isn't as tight as it could be - length. We go back and forth through rash decisions, a weird plot twist that mostly works itself out in the end and violence.Triggers: on page violence, attempted sexual assault and off page sexual assault. This is my second story in short period of time that had a rapey villain of sorts. It fit the plot device but I know if I look at this plot long enough I'll find holes and bumps.
A bump was the possibility a man can be captured twice by the same people, while on the run in a big town like Boston. Granted, the setting isn't in modern times, but I think maybe hiding in a bush in the dark or maybe not going to the scene of the crime again might have stopped the whole concern I had with that particular plot twist. I know it's just to move the plot along but it kept irking me. Also, what is up with authors using sexy times while critically ill? Why can't there be a healing period and then worrying about boners. This isn't the first author to do so and I'm sure it won't be the last. *squints*
The biggest issue with "Sweet William" was the length & the underplayed suspense angle. The story is short but it ends at a good enough spot. We get reunited lovers and drama thrown in. However, there is a kidnapping angle that is too subtle. It could have been mentioned earlier with more clues to let the reader get why certain 'clues' were important. And I wish I got to learn more about the main characters, they were interesting.
The story is quick. Sometimes a short story that gives just enough can work. I do think this would work for a reader who like hot reads, not too much time spent on world building and something that can be read in an hour or two.
Overall, porn with plot. And good plot too. It could be extended and it'd totally be stronger read.
As is, I liked it but with the issues I couldn't rate higher. I'll definitely check out more from this author though; the ideas were good.
Unfortunately, Frederick is detained when his past due rent catches up with him and he's locked out of his room. He tries to get in touch with William, but before he can do so, ruffians from one of William's merchant ships capture him, beat, and drag him back to work for them. One in particular is determined to have Frederick, willing or not. Frederick is terrified. He wants nothing to do with any other man now that he's been reunited with William, but it seems the choice is out of his hands. Finally, William receives Frederick's message. Knowing Frederick is in trouble and praying that he's all right, William rushes to the ship, furious that they have dared to treat his beloved in such a vile manner. There will surely be hell to pay when William gets a hold of the kidnappers, but first he has to find Frederick.
It's no secret that historical romance is my favorite genre, and, although it is short, Dianne has created a tantalizing tale of lost lovers reunited, fraught with passion, peril, and conniving, written in delightful lyrical prose befitting the time period. It's a great story, but I want more! More William, more Frederick, and more romance! If you enjoy historical romance, handsome young men, angst, and happy endings, you may like this story. Thanks, Dianne, for an enjoyable historical romp. Originally reviewed at Rainbow Book Reviews.
