Well written This story was well written if not my preference The MCs seemed immature and not very endearing for most of the book Despite my failure to connect with the MCs , the story was very compelling I will definitely read other books by this author Lines on the Mirror by Lynn MichaelsMartin has always lived in the shadow of his father He followed exactly in his footsteps and always did exactly as he was told He got a degree in the same field as his father and after he graduated college he got a job at a company his father picked out After moving into his apartment, his new neighbors introduce him to the partying lifestyle involving drugs and alcohol The one up side in his life is reconnecting with his first love, Daltrey, a successful artist living in New York They meet up and the sparks fly, but Daltrey won t compromise his morals and support Martin s new lifestyle Without Daltrey around to ground him, Martin spirals out of control until he hits rock bottom and it shows him who is really on his side.This book is intended for an audience 18.This is an erotica book at its core It has several gay characters and several gay, straight, and threesome sex scenes If you offended by sex, drugs, alcohol, or vulgarity, I definitely recommend you not read this book If you don t mind any of that the book is quite enjoyable.I found myself skimming past the erotic scenes because I really wanted to see how the plot played out It had me hooked from the beginning That being said, there were a few hang ups I kind of hated Martin He was the narrator and first person narrators are never reliable, but Martin was so repetitive and downright frustrating I spent the whole book going Oh come on, Martin Grow a back bone He also had this habit of calling Daltrey Dal baby which got under my skin The characters, as a whole, were pretty realistic though.Aside from my own personal pet peeves, the book was decently written and the plot was pretty sound It ends pretty much how you might think but it s a decent ending.I give this 3 5 stars The plot was enough to keep me interested and the erotic scenes didn t detract from the plot Honestly they could have been omitted and the book still would have been decent You can purchase the book on Kindle or paperback here and you can read about the author including her other works here.
