An unlikelier story line I've yet to come across. Dishevelled college jocks get married to inherit more money than god, fall in love at the alter and then flit around the world foiling cruise ship pirates. Really? Pull the other one!
That said, there's something about the subtle humour in the story line that keeps you listening - like a bad 80's Bond flick, awfully compelling. Really really awfully compelling.
Something was missing. The sex. The author skirts around the idea, innuendo here, suggestion there, but never really gets down to it. And I think the story is the worse for it. I'm not suggesting that the he launch into a detailed blow by blow (yes I did it) account every couple of pages, but the one thing that COULD be believable in the narrative, just isn't there.
And my last gripe then - the narrator. Sounds like he's gasping for breath every few words. Other than that, he's actually pretty good. How he voices different characters is especially good and I think that with a little practice, he's going to be great.
Not the best performance, but a great story. I was a little sceptical about a period piece to start with, and a stilted performance didn't help, but in the end, a sexy period piece that's worth the money. Get it now. I've even bought another book in the series.
It will be interesting to see if another book in the Adrien English series sees the light of day. This is what feels like the final instalment in the series. Adrien and Jake's relationship seems to come full circle - the perfect moment to wrap it all up.
Josh Lanyon continues to deliver in another instalment in the Adrien English series. The relationship between Adrien and his closeted cop continues to develop with it's twists and turns.
Dan Savage can do no wrong! I'm an avid follower of his podcast, I love his take on relationships and sex, so maybe, I'm just a little bit biased. But who cares, right?
Can someone say Daddy issues? An exploration of father daughter relationships, plus a love story and rescue all in one.
Another great book by Michael Thomas Ford. I wonder, coincidence that the protagonist Mike, meets his true love, Father Thomas in this book? Wouldn't that be fun?
Always a fan of Josh Lanyon, I like this collection of short stories. Perhaps there's a longer book somewhere in there - Sweets for the Sweet?
I'm fast becoming a Michael Thomas Ford fan. An idilic view of life in Provincetown, a best case scenario for a gay movie super star and an instant family for an middle aged lesbian.
I wander what Martha thinks of this book? It's a well written chronicle of the two city boys trying to find the farming skills they need to save the Beekman mansion, only to finally realise that their urban savvy is what they needed all along. A really honest and forthright read.
Reading the synopsis I wasn't immediately drawn to this book. Instead I found a well written exploration of a life long friendship. Loved it - I was wrapped up in the story from the first moment.
