This book is not characteristic of your typical gay romance, this book takes you for a ride, one that you need to hang on for. It covers Straight to Gay romance, rape (no depicted), BDSM, Menage, Het Sex, misunderstandings, acceptance and true love. See what I mean? Here is where the author’s talents really came through, she was able to capture all of the above, put them together in such a way that it made sense, all the while give us a truly magnificent story.
Aidan and Dario are characters that you really fall for. For Aidan I was always in his corner as he accepted his relationship with Dario. Did you ever wonder if the other half of a person is truly out there and that some people are extremely lucky to find that other half? This question was answered in the affirmative when it came to our characters, even though Aidan identified himself as straight, his one true love turns out to be a man named Dario. This is what the story is built on.
This isn’t a fluffy fall in love romance novel. Aidan doesn’t accept the fact that he is attracted to Dario so easily and I was quite surprised at how tormented Dario was. The Author wrote a brilliant story where the characters helped each other through the mess. Some readers may not like the fact that third parties were used in the “therapy” of our characters but the scenes were so well written that I accepted these trysts as necessary to the development of the story and to the betterment of the characters.
Prepare yourself for the ride, your emotions are going to be all sunshine one moment, gut wrenching sadness at others and sexually stimulated by the unexpected. This is a book that you will want to read a second time. For me knowing how it ends will make revisiting it that much better. A Most Excellent read!
Aidan has always played it safe. Instead of pursuing his dream of creating innovative music that makes his soul sing, he settled for a degree in software, a job in a cubicle, and a spot in a generic band with his buddies.
And he’s always been straight. But when he’s seduced by magnetic local literary luminary Dario, Aidan must decide whether to keep playing it safe, or succumb to a ravenous passion and a nourishing love unlike anything he’s experienced before. Will he find the courage to go after real happiness if it means admitting he’s in love with a man?
Their journey together isn’t easy. Sometimes it isn’t safe. Even if Aidan has the courage to admit he’s in love with Dario, can he endure the repercussions of the traumatic event in Dario’s past?
