I’m not really into BDSM stuff so that chapter in this book made me shudder a bit. And that “enema” scene was downright off for my taste. I also thought that the jump to BDSM was quite off to begin with. The analogy the author was trying to make about it and Matty’s Olympic aspiration was way too trying hard If I may say so.
The first half up to the middle of second half of the novel has a very slow build up and the conclusion didn’t even make up for it. I’m glad though that a character like Matty made it into this genre. I mean there’s also few of them who are that flamboyant and I really want to see more. This is actually my first read with an effeminate and flamboyant gay character and that’s the best part of this novel. Matty’s just fabulous!
It’s just too bad that there was too much going on with the characters and the pacing of the story didn’t help at all. I’m not quite sure if there’ll be a reread for me but I’d definitely consider.
Rating: 2.5 out of 5 stars
