    ★★★☆☆½ 35 StarsDiego is a closed off powerful gangster who finds amnesiac 'Alec' floating in the ocean on life raft The writing is rather sensuous which is what upped it to 4 stars since it was a bit of a fairy taleDiego hasn't felt anything in a long time but he wants to protect this stranger who turns his life on its head Alec has horrifying nightmares but is unable to remember what happened to him which is probably a good thing in the endAs Alec returns to health their mutual attraction leads them to than savior and rescueeA nice read to while away a Sunday afternoon

    This is a tough book for me to review I picked it up because I know Wendy Rathbone's writing in other contexts The book description is clear but by the time I started reading it I had pretty much forgotten that description For that reason I wasn't uite prepared for this story It's a male on male romance which is actually one of the few genres I don't read Since I was reading it without the description handy I was expecting there to be some supernatural elements There wasn't This is a realistic tale When I finally got to a place where I could look up the description I saw that was exactly how it was described If you enjoy male on male romantic stories I imagine you will like this one uite a bit There is lush description and considerable poetic language which is what I expected from Rathbone and which is the reason I picked this up in the first place The sex scenes which are pretty freuent toward the last half of the book are technically very well written and if you like this genre then I imagine they would be highly charged emotionally for you Since I'm not the target audience for these scenes I don't think I can evaluate them properly

    A ruthless and unfeeling man discovers that he has a heart after allDiego Stolar is known as IntocableThe Untouchable With his hands deep in all kind of illegal activities he's manipulative cold and uncaringwith no ualms about using any means to achieve his goals Then one day he rescues a man who was drifting in the middle of the ocean The instant need to protect that man takes him by surprise as does the intensity of his feelings towards him Do I think that a mobster like Diego has anything worth loving? I'm still debating on that one But I liked watching the way Alec changed his life and heart The evolving of his powerful and fierce love for the beautiful and suffering man is really moving Does love redeem? I don't have an answerbut I think that the emotions and the feelings described in this book are beautifulbecause love always is

    I love this book Diego a power mob boss of the Caribbean finds a man Alec floating in the ocean in a life raft unconscious takes him home with him He doesn't know why he's so drawn to Alec but he is After his doctor checks him over they clean him up he continues to take care of him until Alec wakes up Alec has no memory of what happened to him but has nightmares is afraid of the ocean thunderstorms Diego researchers Alec to find out what happened to him puts out feelers with his contacts Things between them heat up it is HOT I can't wait for the next one to hopefully find what happens to Alec too see the fire between them

    What will remain the most with you of this romance is the language almost poetic Sometime I had the feeling I was reading a poem not a novel and it was so enthralling that I was almost forgetting the plot or the characters And you should not because the author decided to being totally honest with them especially DiegoDiego is the villain that character that usually will remain unpaired at the end if he arrives at the end of the story; a villain can have honor but if he doesn’t redeem he cannot have the happily ever after or at least so are the romance rules Well here Diego will not redeem and until the very end he will maneuver is dark empire with a coldness that is scaring a coldness that on the other hand he doesn’t reserve to Alec the man he found lost at sea and that he brought back to life apparently Sure Diego has a tragic past and he became who he is as an act of rebellion but instead of fighting to destroy the system he decided to conuer it; sure he has honor he will not trade with the worst kind of smugglers but while weapons and drugs are not human lives they nevertheless kill them And not do not hope he will be rescue by Alec’s love into a new and better man that is not where the story is aiming on the contrary in a way it will be Diego that will drag Alec into his denAlec has amnesia he doesn’t even remember who he is; Diego is his only constant and even if the police will tell him the true about the other man nevertheless Diego remains his only shelter Living in Diego’s remote mansion I think allow Alec to deny he has not his own life; no one is asking uestions no one is pretending answers Alec can build a new life while Diego can reborn a little In a way they are both hiding Alec from a past is better he doesn’t remember Diego from his own past he doesn’t want to remember; since Alec cannot share his past at the same time he is not asking Diego about his own and Diego is not volunteering the info They are both willingly falling into oblivion And no there will be no return to them that is their happily ever afterhttpwwwdpB008E97SOA?

    This is a pleasing gay romance short in length but well worth a readIt is at the same time conventional and unconventionalConventional in presenting the typical encounter and getting to know each other between characters with a dark past in its touch of cinderella like story not forgetting that subgenre where the lovely English lass usually an aristocrat meets the dark haired roguish pirate of the Seven SeasUnconventional in avoiding the usual banter between the leads and choosing a flowery language bent on describing settings and emotions and aiming at beauty a result it usually obtains without becoming sappy Here and there I was a bit confused by a use of the past tenses that did not sound completely right but writing is generally uite goodDiego is a crime lord in the Caribbeans Islands and deals in drugs and prostitution but has a code In his way he is honourable remember the roguish XVIII century pirate of straight romances? We should despise him but the author gives him a tragic past and a humanity which endear him to us The POV belongs to him and this simple device allows us to feel for and with him Alec is a muscled beauty presumably a middle class educated man frail and strong at the same timeThrough Alec Diego is born again and given a chance to redeem himself Their growing love is beautifully worded except perhaps for the actual sex acts where the language does not manage to maintain the same standard it achieves everywhere elseThere is not much of a plot this being of an inner voyage of self discovery but what there is is well built and consistent with the reuired and satisfying HEA

    This was a uick easy often preposterous read A Caribbean mobster is sailing with a couple of his guards and encounters an unconscious amnesiac nordic god floating in a life raft The mobster brings him aboard and begins nursing him to health ultimately bringing the man back to his home where he finishes nursing him to health Obviously the two men perfectly shaped as they are fall in lust and then love for each other while the mobster uses his connections to try and help our young Thor recover his historyTurns out the aryan is a man who was sold into slavery gang raped and then made to walk the plank of his sinking slave ship during a botched escape attempt The mobster ends up choosing to keep the man's history to himself to let him remain amnesiac and so they live happily ever afterThe sex aspects of the story were actually decently written in that they were fairly accurate mechanically and still a little titillating For a regular read maybe 2 stars For a porn divergence 3 12 it would get here but it takes a long time about 60% of the book to get to the first bit of erotica


  8. Molly Lolly Molly Lolly says:

    Original review on Molly LollyFour and a half starsThis book was really good There was an interesting dichotomy between this man that is not nice by any means with his drug smuggling prostitution rings and money laundering and his flowery story The language used is big and robust with Diego constantly thinking about living in paradise and how beautiful the place is You truly feel like you’re there in the Caribbean experiencing it Makes for an absolutely fascinating read I loved how Alec calls him a romantic smuggler My heart breaks for Alec and the things he most likely went through It was interesting watching him learn to trust Diego Plus watching their relationship evolve from rescuer to friend to lover Can’t wait to see what happens in the next book
