Book: Wes’ Denial
Series: Tease-Denial Book 2
Author: Joseph Lance Tonlet
Publisher: Joseph lance Tonlet
Rated: Mature BDSM
I am always excited to have a dry spell (pardon the pun) as a review chair. Sometimes it is slow enough that I get to choose books and get to read new to me authors. My friend and reviewer/blogger Lisa Arbitrary mentioned this series and hmmmm I did have the time……..
Before I begin I must mention, this story is not just an M/M Romance. It may not be for all readers. To explain though, our author has written an epic love story spanning the lives of Marcus and Wes from their beginnings. We learned in each book about them, and what made them who they were exactly when they met. Then we watched them grow even closer in this second book Wes’s Denial; when Wes finally shared his needs. Slowly before our eyes two became became one…. with trust, and love. They were perfect for each other and this awesome author took us there step by step.
We followed Grif’s life in Grif’s Toy when Marcus learned quite suddenly at a young age he had a body to be ridiculed. This humiliation would follow him forever. We learned in Wes’ Denial about Wes’ life, and how the flashbacks we follow have also formed who Wes is. Chocolate, Vanilla and in between were their sweet acceptance of each other, a need for the two of them to fulfill.
Joseph Lance Tonlet, I feel privileged to have read your two books. I did it bleary eyed over this weekend because I couldn’t put both down. You are a master of words, writing a symphony, music of a journey you have taken us on. This is one I would nott have missed for the world.
I must say the Epilogue just about did me in. No Spoilers…..So please readers take a chance, broaden your reading horizons. I do not think you will be disappointed…..
Review by Gloria Lakritz
Sr Reviewer and Review Chair for the Paranormal Romance Guild
Wes' Denial focuses on the big unanswered question from the first book- what big, dark secret is Wes hiding? Turns out, he's got a lot of really heavy baggage.
I actually enjoy the time jumps in this. Like the first, we get a teenage Wes, when he was on active duty, before meeting Grif, the beginning of their relationship, and the two as an established couple. The way this book reads follows the themes of tease and denial. Rather than progressing in a linear fashion, we know what's going on and where it'll likely end up, but the "how" in the middle are hinted at and teased. Then the story shifts and makes you wait. I can't help but think this parallel was intentional. But just like the kink, it's that much more gratifying when you get what you're waiting for ;)
Absolutely recommend to fans of the first book. I preferred this to the first book, so even if you were on the fence with that one, read this. For those who haven't read book 1, this is NOT a standalone.
The openings chapter was one that shakes you and keeps you right in ........amazing
My God....Wes and Grif.... The way they treat each other.....so delicate...so deeply imbued with love.....
Now and then a little crack of uncertainty which has to be confirmed.....so open...vulnerable.....
The storyline is one of high level....everything was right....flawless
And then the humor....sometimes subtle sometimes prominent....I loved it all
All the details in their interactions were fascinating, Wes was perfect and Grif...Grif was master (read servant) in his being. To see how their relationship grows and deepen is the real satisfaction
I love the feeling in this story that they were made for each other. That they even met and than so compatible. Fulfilling each others deepest desires with no reserve or restraint. A perfect couple
They grow and in their experience they overcome themselves.
The Wes' experience with Thomas and Henrik... read it yourself
All the side characters were part of this journey they had to be there.
Again Wes' did grow immensely
I loved it so much that he wasn't perfect, he had his flaws. It made him more human. But he does it so well! he learned from his mistakes.
And then at some point there is some (little) revelation from Wes' side. Again read it yourself it's so worth.
The back- and forward is really well done. Bit by bit the gaps are filled. The journey was whole, detailed and full with story. No dull moment, I just loved it. The writing style was excellent, captivating and on a great level.
The build-up in this story is one you will never forget
After I finished this journey I was utterly speechless. The end was EPIC.
