I totally loved this book, I laughed at times too. This book is different to what I have read previously, as it is told from both William’s and David’s point of view.
William is the owner of a bar, and he is trying to persuade David to come home with him…..but David is having none of it, and thus he now becomes the hunted….. or has he??
The chase between the two men will have you laughing, as both of them assume that they have got the better over the other, but as you can see both of their views, you will soon know that this is not the case. The author really gave you an insight into both of their thoughts and feelings, and this made the book so much fun to read. For each of the rules, you read what each man was thinking, and this chase went on between the two for three months!!
On the evening that David is caught, which is when he accepted Williams drink on the house, is when the pages become scorching hot. The way that the author describes everything, from their sensual dancing together on the dance floor early in the evening, to their eventual coming together, is so vivid that you can honestly picture everything in your mind, right down to the smallest detail.
The following morning William wakes to find himself alone, which makes him sad, as he woke and wanted David again, but it was just for one night. However, as David is a no show for the next couple of nights, William slowly realises that he misses David, and that their coming together may have meant more to him, than his usual seduce them, fuck them and then you’re done attitude of previous prey.
David does go back to the bar, but does he even acknowledge William…… I will let you buy the book to find out!!
Lily Velden lives on the east coast of Australia, her family having emigrated from Holland when she was a child.
She’s both a left and right brain person, holding qualifications in both Finance and Fine Arts. She tells her friends that her way with numbers will make her a profitable artist and writer… one day.
Lily has always had a love of language and a beautifully crafted sentence, and admits to having a fetish for collecting quotes, poems, and song lyrics. What she won’t admit to is how many notebooks she’s filled with those quotes… Her fascination carries on into her artworks where she often incorporates text. When a shoulder injury slowed down her art practice she decided to explore her love of the written word more fully and began writing. “I’ll paint my pictures with words.”
Not that she’s abandoned artmaking in its entirety—Lily collaborates on the designs for all her book covers.
There are many things Lily loves, here are just a few of the PG rated ones: a good laugh (all the better if caused by a naughty joke), the smell of freshly baked goods and mown grass, a smile from a stranger, rainbows after the rain, and witnessing a promise kept.
