He's glad he's away from a town and family where he doesn't fit. However, Ev struggles finding a fit anywhere. His roommate and friend Leo hassles him a little about things, and when Ev takes a flyer for nude modelling in an art class, Leo is a little disapproving. But Ev is built in more ways than one and he (guiltily) likes the idea of people looking at his body and his cock. But no matter what, Ev doesn't feel like he can share much about himself to anyone. He plays a lot close to his chest, his thoughts, his desires. Leo is an interesting secondary character. He isn't quite who he seems to be at first. Once the book progressed I saw things more clearly. I felt like Leo was a natural fit as a roommate for Ev, someone Ev would gravitate to, but I'm not expanding on that further.
Adam is a wealthy (sometimes art teacher) artist. When he spots Ev naked in one of the campus run art classes, he approaches him after class about modelling for him as well. He has a theme for an upcoming exhibition about exposing the vulnerability in male sexuality and he likes what he sees in Ev. He pays more for modelling than the college art classes and Ev is interested, albeit nervous. Art class with a professor and multiple students seems less intimate than being naked with one, very attractive man and Ev can't go there, can he?
Sure he can and the ride is delicious, has depth, and is as sexy as can be. Lynn Kelling is a terrific author and has a distinct way with characters who need to find themselves, and that is to the fore in her latest offering, bare.
Plenty to like about bare. Really good characters, master-slave dynamic, but never heavy on that aspect, small town boy from strong GOP and religious roots finding himself, some of the hottest sex scenes you'll read and a good, strong story to back it up. This is not a dark Lynn Kelling read but there is depth and meaning at the heart, with reparative therapy, religion - hello, Adam and Ev - and the emotional conflict these cause running throughout. Enough to make you angry at some people's outdated and dangerous ideas and behaviour. But there's more to cheer about for Adam and Ev.
I loved it.
Most relatable thing here? The way things are in college. How you arrive one way and often leave another - the way you question, the things people do. It is an individual, yet a unifying experience. Yeah that's a mind f*^% all right.
Smooth writing, progression just perfect -- tension in all the good ways (emotionally, sexually, physically) make this an un-put-down-able book until you are finished. Highly recommended.
