The Other Book is an emotionally erotic tour de force
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When Roe said – shortly after releasing the sweet sweet love story that was Vanilla Clouds – that he was working on ‘the other book’ and it was so different he was considering whether to release it under a pen name, I was one of those who said I’d read it whatever name he published under.
Well, he chose to put it out here with his name firmly attached and I’ve read it just as I said I would.
But let me say this clearly – this book may be erotica, it may be so hot you’re going to want a cold shower after reading it, it may be a book you blush just thinking about, however it absolutely 100% is a Roe Horvat narrative.
It is filled with beautiful language, it paints vividly bright pictures of the world being portrayed and the characters living in it, it gives you a romance you’re rooting for from the off and – irrespective of the heat and sexual content – it is absolutely about emotionally satisfying connections and love between two men who are each other’s perfect fit.
Make no mistake, this book is exquisite erotica, so well done as to draw out the tingling feelings but also to make you go “awww” at the trust displayed by all those involved.
Read – and heed – the warning and the author’s note, this book won’t be for everyone but for me, it’s Roe’s best release outside of Love Song For The Sad Man In The White Coat, which remains my all-time favourite book of his.
