My rating: 5 of 5 stars
When University administrator Alan Castleton meets temporary worker and talented pianist Luke Milton, he doesn’t expect to become obsessed with the handsome young blond. But soon he is heavily involved in a passionate and angry affair, and exploring the dark shadows of his own personality in a way he’s never encountered before.
The more Alan tries to break free from his obsession, the deeper it entangles him. The dangerous split between his reason and his sexual desires threatens his peace of mind and, when the crisis point comes, he must decide once and for all the kind of life he should lead.
So what did I think?
This is dark erotica, a short and intense journey into one man’s self discovery, discovery of something dark and dangerous.
“I didn’t like the way his words made me feel – powerful and sick at the same time, as if I were standing on the edge of a cliff top I couldn’t really see and any second I could step off and not know if I’d fall or if I’d fly.”
I read this story with a strange fascination. The story was compelling, even if slightly uncomfortable. I couldn’t look away. And when the ending arrived I was left wondering what had actually just occurred. And I wanted more.
This is a story of loss of control, of violence, pain and humiliation. You have been warned…..
