This is strange review to be writing. The book was nothing like I thought it would be, well maybe a little. I even had a hard time on how I was going to categorize it. I guess you figured out that this book dealt with some pretty new content for me, not so much in what it talked about but how it compares to other books I’ve read in the past.
This book I actually stumbled upon and I thought for $.99, I’d have nothing to lose. I’ve never heard of Daryl before so my hopes weren’t really high or my expectations to great for this book, for that I owe Daryl an apology. I was expecting this book to be erotica, but it wasn’t, there are actually not any full blown sex scenes that you may expect. This book is all about the games and a bit more, but I can’t tell you about that because it would ruin the story. Let’s suffice it to say that Andrew does have a softer and more vulnerable side to him.
Micheal is a self proclaimed geek who has the HOTS for Andrew the hottest stud on campus, as far as Michael is concerned. As Michael follows and dreams about Andrew and his body fate intervened in a Psych class they both attend it also allowed Michael and Andrew to become partners on a class project. Andrew suggest GAMES as the thesis title and content, which plays right into how Andrew treats life. Michael and Andrew begin playing GAMES, for Michael the prize is seeing Andrews body naked and close up, for Andrew it is all about playing the game, Andrew is a bit of an enigma throughout most of the book I never really knew what his end game was I don’t think I truly realize it now even after finishing the book.
In a way this book has a slight resemblance to a Master/dom relationship, but that is to too clear an explanation. The relationship that is and what developed is a really gray area, although I did tell you earlier that we do see a more vulnerable and softer side to Andrew it wouldn’t be called a Romance, although there was an MC tied spread eagle on a bed, this book isn’t about bondage, although there is a belt that makes contact with skin, you can’t really call it BDSM. The best way for me to describe it to myself would be that it is a Psychological game of of the minds and both Andrew and Michael play it against the other so well.
