Roe Horvat is an utter genius at writing emotionally connected erotica
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
There is something incredibly powerful about recognising the way sex can be freeing when you let yourself just give in to desire.
When that desire is coupled with another person who treasures your pleasure as part of their own, you get a book like this.
It will be labelled as erotica, and it undoubtedly is some of the hottest Roe has written. But, as with all his books, it is much more than just sex.
The dirty talk is pitched perfectly to appeal to Kevin, who wants to feel like he’s driving his man wild with lust, he needs to feel desired, to be used and it’s incandescent.
Joakim is older, he’s aware of the passage of time and how he may have riches and a powerful professional life, but he’s still alone and fearful of people wanting him for his celebrity.
When he meets Kevin, he’s quickly lost in the slightly younger (a nine-year age gap only) man’s vitality and is mesmerised by his dancing talent
As well as the most excellent smexy times, this is also a beautiful slow burn romance which, while it happens in a relatively short time scale, totally makes sense.
The trust each man gives to the other is a solid foundation on which they learn more about what makes the other tick, both sexually and emotionally.
I loved every little filthy and steamy bit of it.
