Standing Ughterrible I got through 85 pages before giving up One of the few books my mom forbid me to read I read it anyway Of course I was just a teenager in high school at the time Let s just say I understood why she didn t want me to read it There are lements that are offensive to some people Very dense writing No romance in this book Perverse violence You feel nothing for the characters The hero is a class A jerk and the hero is TSTL Worth only 12 a star because the premise is good but the author just couldn t write it well Number 1 in Top 10 worst books Evolution As Entropy ever written for me I absolutely love this book I don t consider it a romance Alyx and Simon were just two hurting people trying to make anscape I ve read it three or four times My only complaint is that I felt the Forging Gay Identities ending was a bit rushedWhat I find very interesting is the author s note at thend of the book about who the character Simon was based on It says In the ighteenth century the Sixth Earl of Anglesey uncle Phillip is notorious as having procured the kidnapping and bondage in America of his nephew James Annesley rightful Lor. E young once heir to a noble title He felt no desire for this anonymous woman who was forced upon him And she knew only fearful hatred for this stranger who was about to violate her youthful innocence But as night after night of tremulous fevered mating passed something forbidden grew between thes.

D Altham The g I purchased this book because of an threadtopic that caught my interest The writing not the story left a lot to be desired It may have been the ra in which the book was printed that caused me so much trouble I found I had to read a passage than once to follow the story Having said that it was an okay read Simon is an English born noble Alyx is also English born They Flights of Fancy, Leaps of Faith each have a different story of how they came to be in a slave camp Simon is a stud Alyx one of the women he must impregnate Simon has been a slave for 10 years and a stud for 5 He had settled into his life until Alyx spoke to him in his mother tongue What transpires after that is a very strange warped story of love gone wrong Somon s owner is in love with him yet he rapes him Alyx is in love with Simon and Simon is confused and in love with them both It wasn t a bad story but i doubt I ll buy another story by this author Well I made it to page 20 and that wasnough for me The writing was horrible really choppy dialog I didn t read nough to really write a review but I just couldn t take another page of this book lo. E two desire damned lovers a rapturous passion that drove them to dare any peril to free ach other from this savage world of bondage and brutal submission And it was then that Alyx and Simon swore that no power They Shall Be One Flesh even death itself wouldver overcome their ternal bond of flaming all conuering love.
