Loving Peter by Bonnie Dee

It’s not only the name that links Peter to Peter Pan and Wendell to Wendy, there are many other references in the novel, a young elf of a boy by the name of Tinker, a band of scoundrels that always goes along with Peter, and of course, the firm decision of Peter to never grey up, to not being a captive of an house with closed windows.

Wendell, as his female counterpart, is the one with the leveled head, the older of three brothers, the one who always behaved as his parents expected, except for the fact that he didn’t marry, and at almost 30, he is reaching an age that makes him a black sheep among white lambs. Wendell is homosexual, and he knows that, but in 1901 London, the same year, if I remember well, when Oscar Wilde died in exile, an happily ever after for him is unthinkable. And so he searches solace in a very special private club, where he meets Peter, and the two start a passionate love story, in a way less traumatic than what I was expecting.

The book had a warning for BDSM theme, but sincerely, that is really far from any BDSM themed novel I read; sure, sometime Peter tends to order Wendell around, but more cause he is the experienced one in comparison to almost virgin Wendell, but aside from that, there is no difference between them in bed, no Domination or submission; and even if Peter is from aristocracy and Wendell is a middle class clerk, even in that account there is no highlighting of their social status different level when they are together.

All in all, I found this story to be more romantic and sweet than expected, and it left me with a warm comfortable feeling.
