I writ about halfway, so I feel that 's enough to justify a rating and review, especially considering my problems with the book.Ten years ago, artist Eve Everton left Tampa and her fianc Paul Mattling behind to attend art school in New York.
Realizing that he and Paul not only keep in touch but live together, she ccepts his invite to come over that night and catch up on lost time.Although she never stopped loving Paul, and yet had a tendre for Danny, much has changed in ten days.
You have Danny 's struggle with his love for Paul being tossed in his face and outright rejected.
There 's a lot of drama to work with here and a great remise for a memorable menage story that 's les than just feminine fantasy.Unfortunately, there 's mall problem- I woul n't seem to take a damn about any of this.Now, why was that, you decide.
I was on the novelis 's prescribed ride, and please keep your arms inside the vehicle.I resent being led through a novel by the nose.Constantly throughout the novel, another author plainly tells rather than shows: He needed the punishment of working out until his muscles burned in agony.
Why not show me Paul working out compulsively rather than alluding to his workouts and plainly spelling out the symbolism for me “ I ’ m saying, ” he whispered frantically, trying to fight down the deep-seated instinct in him that made him hard and desperate when a oman he anted as badly as Eve was that domineering and angry at him.
Yes, I got it the first te times you alluded to his " pain fetish. " You do n't have to keep bludgeoning me with it.Paul stared at Danny in horror, trying to emphasiz that saying Paul looked sexy was not something typical between two male friends.No shit?
She kept referring to Paul 's " pain fetish " ( and man did she over- and misuse the word " fetish " as well) but I was at the halfway point and maybe a half-dozen sex scenes in and had yet to see any pain play.
She reminded me via Danny that Paul liked pain so excessively that he did n't trust Paul with any top other than himself, but I alway got to see Danny whipping, caning or otherwise beating Paul.
I do n't xpect a full-on scene negotiation, but chiding someone for asking about boundaries is n't sexy to me.
