More than a MM romance. Anyone not reading this misses out on a great tale.
on 4 September 2013
This tale isn't full of the hot sex and drama that many MM romances are all about - that's not a criticism in any way. There are sex scenes in it, but they're few and far between, and come at a point where they're meaningful and healing. The sex is more romantic than erotic, and did seem a tiny touch one-sided to me, but not to the leads, for their own reasons; the leads were very well-suited.
The leads are pretty much total opposites, but complement each other so well, and their relationship took time to grow out of friendship, into something lasting and loving. The author wrote all of the characters incredibly well, not that all were as likable as the leads, but from the preview of the next tale in the series, I had hopes that at least one of them might redeem himself.
It's a tale, yes, of MM romance, but also of love, friendship, loyalty, old fashioned values, and of compassion and the good that can still be found in human nature. It's a tale to be re-read.
