Cover Art: A young man unshaven, dressed in a black v-neck sweater, against a background of a coastal scene. Title is a mix of four fonts. Whilst clear I personally would have preferred to see no more than two.
Synopsis: Very short. Introduces Trey and David to us. Is slightly different in the book to retail sites. however there is no warning of adult content anywhere and this book is full of really hot sex.
Plot: Two men, one appears straight but realised recently he is bisexual and struggling to come to terms with it, the other out and proud and is only interested in dating men who know what they want. A fairly straightforward story taking place in Australia.
Main Characters: Trey Bromley, our gay event co-ordinator. David Rossi, hot, sexy, security company owner who has recently realised he is bisexual.
Secondary Characters: Riley, Trey’s best friend and occasional f*ck buddy; Henry, Trey’s brother; Travis, Trey’s step-brother; Sean, Henry’s boyfriend; Meg, Trey’s secretary.
Flow/Continuity: The story is told from Trey’s point of view and written in the present tense. I don’t usually enjoy present tense writing as quite often the author does not give any description of the surroundings having become too involved with the character. It was such a pleasure to read descriptions of the apartment where Trey lived with his brothers, the club they frequented and Trey’s office together with their surroundings..
Conflict/Climax: You just know there is going to be lots of angst with the pairing of Trey and David. There is no holding back with Trey. Everyone knows which way he swings! David is the strong silent type but once he makes a decision he lets people know. And when they get it wrong? Everyone knows.
Editing/Formatting: Very clear formatting, it was easy to see follow and messages and emails were easy to differentiate from the main narrative. This is the first book for a long time where I haven’t spotted a single typo!
Price: At £1.55 for 221 pages this is very reasonably priced.
Conclusion: Everything seemed to happen so quickly as though time had been compressed. Although the story happened over a period of months it felt like things were happening overnight. Despite this it is an enjoyable story and well written and as I said before, no typos!
I give this book 8 out of 10.
