I’m not real sure what to right about this story. The blurb doesn’t really say how little story there is in the 221 pages. There is no character development. I couldn’t stand the main character, Matt. He had no personality, no heart and I actually never felt any chemistry with any of his conquests. And there were MANY.
This book is almost straight porn. I wish I could say it’s even the kind of porn I like, but it isn’t. It may be the kind that men like or men with some kinks like. I guess that’s something I’m going to have to start asking. It basically just made me want o stop reading the darned thing. Even the sex scenes felt like they were copy and pasted, change the name and the hair color and the description of the dick and do the same thing over again, and again and again. There wasn’t a dick description that was under 8 inches and in my many years, I’ve very seldom run into those. Where are they hiding?
I hate to write bad reviews. Especially when it’s an area I’m unfamiliar with, like what gay men really like. But something tells me that it’s not a consistent thing. I sure think that when a gay man picks up a book he would like to find character development and a well-rounded story of some sort. I didn’t find it in this one. I’m sorry.
When high school football jock Matt and his best friend, Demsey, begin having sexual relations, Matt thinks of himself as just another horny teenager, but when Demsey’s dad seduces him, he realizes he has the face, body, and endowment that can drive men crazy.
During his first year of college, he tries to maintain a straight façade, but he is unable to sublimate his constant craving for gay sex, eventually succumbing to his roommate’s advances. After a tryst on the beach with a soccer player, the thought of becoming a porn star begins to crystallize, but it is only after he wins the Mr. Eight Plus competition that he immerses himself in the porn industry. After a successful career in the porn milieu, he accidentally runs into Demsey, and the love they’d shared as teenagers is reignited.
