So yes, this author is exploring all the taboos of erotica, and is developing all the variations inside the same family, the Walker brothers, living in a small Texan town, and owning the local private, and adult club, Alluring Indulgence.
Considering I’m not a big fan of pure erotica, I was a little weary of reading this story, especially when it started at the club, on a New Year’s Eve, with Beau witnessing Ethan having sex with his own boyfriend, Blake. True, Blake wasn’t really a nice character, and it was clear he was soon out of the picture, and indeed the story took a positive turn, from my point of view, after that event. I liked the slow but hot development of the love story between Ethan and Beau, I love how these were adult men but with a sort of naiveté regarding relationship: sex they knew, love was uncharted territory. The sex was hot, and yes, considering this is an erotic romance, it was abundant, but, very much strict to my taste: a one to one relationship between two men, no funny games, hot, sweat and skin. Oh yes, and the classical shower sex scene ;-) but that is almost a must in erotic romance (has happened also to you that since starting reading erotic romance, when entering a new bathroom, you look at the shower with different eyes? )
So yes, to my taste, this was almost perfect, the almost given only by some quirky point that irked me, but didn’t deter from reading the whole book: for example, telling me three times in the span of few pages that Jared just came out of nowhere beginning of January was probably overdoing it; unless it wasn’t really important for me to know it, but it wasn’t. (So, needless to say, they’d butted heads since the day Jared showed up right around the first of the year. (p. 27); Now that Blake wasn’t working for them , Ethan wondered if that would help the strained relationship that had started to develop since the first week of January when Jared had shown up out of the blue (p. 28); The other was occupied by Jared, Ethan’s cousin, who had practically dropped out of the sky on New Year’s Day and landed smack dab in the middle of Walker Demolition (p. 44)). Other than that, a very satisfying reading, an erotic romance that was at the same time “romantic” (not sweet of course, but well, I had the feeling these men like to cuddle…)
