I've just recently discovered Harper Fox and admit to be very taken with her style of writing. She tells her stories without any unecessary frippery but at the same time still seems to be able to make them lyrical. When the story begins, Matthew is barely managing to exhist after being dumped by his lover Joe, but what makes it worse, is he has left him for a woman who he's going to marry. Matthew sees Aaron in a club one night, sat at the bar, rejecting advances from all the guys cruising him. There is something about him that captures Matts interest and vice versa as Aaron watches Matt having a public sexual encounter with one of the casual hook ups he has been using to try and deaden his emotional pain. From then on they are drawn to each other and in Aaron , Matt finds a rescuer, a friend and ultimately a lover but Aaron is also holding a secret that could shatter Matthews newly found trust and ruin what is turning out to be a true romance between them. The love scenes are sensual but never gratuitous and the chemistry they have is palpable.
* Possible Spoiler *
The only reason this didn't get a 5* rating was because I couldn't quite believe that knowing how ' skittish ' Matthew was about Joe's betrayal, Aaron wasn't more careful in keeping certain things about his own secret away from him and then when Matthew finds ' clues ' on his computer and becomes suspicious doesn't just explain and nip the misunderstanding in the bud at that point in their relationship.Read more ›
I liked this story, but The Salisbury Key by the same author, is better.
How wrong was I? OK, so "Life After Joe" is a short story, but Ms Fox's writing more than makes up for its shortness. A very emotional read.
easy to understand the two young men and how they feel.
I will keep this one and read it again If you are a fan of Harper Fox or her books buy this one
The other thing that is good about this book is the fact that the characters aren't really stereotypes - these are instead real men who just happen to be gay and who if you weren't in the clubs or in the know would not immediately assume they were and that is lovely to behold in fiction.
There is so much more to the story, hidden twists and drama, as well as just life going on - and so ok towards the end it takes a turn for the unreal a little but then if it didn't it wouldn't fit the romance genre it's in, but even this doesn't really detract from the story too much because it is still well written.
On the whole this is one of the best gay romances I have read in a while, indeed one of the best male/male books I have read in a while of any of the genres and I shall certainly be looking out for more of Ms Fox's books to come out from Carina Press.
