This is no spoiler, the prologue starts simply and sets the tone at the outset. "I f#%^ women for money." Hallen tells his story with great honesty. We hear how his family background both helped and hindered him, giving him a skill set that would add to his charms and marketability as a male escort while simultaneously limiting his choices and allowing him to justify the morality of it all (a mother who introduced a steady flow of 'uncles' to his young life). In many ways he is lucky that he was recruited by Eloise, as there was a certain education that came with her level of connections. She also seems to have been a mother-figure in the absence of Hallen's real mother. Hallen has his eyes open when he enters the life and we see the humor, the humanity, the raw sensuality and the degradation in equal amounts through his eyes. It is quite simply an amazing piece of narrative even without the love story.
However, Jane Harvey-Berrick is a writer of poignant romance and the tale would not be complete without Hallen finding and fighting for his happy ending.Read more ›
I have only ever known one author to be able to write a male POV that was convincing....now I know 2. Seriously, the stuff I was reading would be the same stuff that I would be thinking in those circumstances. I'm glad the author didn't just dump a load of swears into his chat and think that is how men speak lol. Yes we swear, but we are much more complex than just a constant swear!
I enjoyed reading Hallen's exploits from his porn star days at 20, right through to him falling in love almost a decade later.
This book had every emotion from laughing hysterically to wanting to cry big ugly man sobs.
A thought-provoking journey that I'm glad I went on. Huge thanks to the author for bringing this story out for me to read. And you can read it too....and you SHOULD read it! What are you waiting for? Get your clicker finger limbered up!!
Thanks to Michelle for recommending this book to me x x
The book description is a bit misleading, and I wish I went in blind not knowing there was a Laura / Hallen relationship. They do not meet until well into the book. So enter reading this story with a mindset of indulging on the journey Hallen takes us, and do not wait for the story "to start" (i.e. when Hallen meets Laura). I loved the pacing of the book, and feel the description sets the wrong expectation which can leave some waiting too long for the hero and heroine to meet.
Hallen is a very flawed character. He is a good person who makes *terrible* choices. I often bounced between empathy and pity, but wanted to shake sense into him at other times. We read his journey and witness him getting lost in a fractured and seedy side of privileged reality. I went from liking him to wanting to let go of him completely (as he immersed himself into a life as a escort and lost himself). It was a wonderful tension, and kept me curious as to where the author would lead us. Also interesting is that Hallen is the one pigeon held by his looks. He is extremely objectified, judged, labeled, and few look past his appearance to the man within.
Laura is an empathetic heroine. You understand her insecurities and baggage from an emotionally abusive marriage. I wished for her to see her worth, and read / witness more of it. We live in a society that tags youth to beauty, and that is only one narrow aspect of it. Women gain emotional maturity and wisdom as youth fades, and that enhances a completely different type of beauty. Although Laura's appearance doesn't define her worth, it was clear she didn't realize how beautiful she truly is.Read more ›
