I started out unsure of this book as I had trouble warming up to Brock. But by the end of the book I really liked Brock and Daniel and their story. ( )
  authorshawnlane | Nov 14, 2008 |
Brock is a man-eater and he is proud to have had more than one thousand of lovers; how? it's simple, he spends all his weekend hooking up with men in gay club, and having at least two lovers by night. Knowing the name of the man who gives him a blow job, or whom he is screwing is not essential. But Brock is happy of his life since he is jovial and friendly and he has a very good reputation with all his past lovers. He is loved and he loves himself.

One night Brock meets the only man who manages to break all his rules: Daniel is handsome, enthralling, sexy, but he is so aloof and mysterious. Even if they become soon lovers, Brock actually doesn't know nothing of the man: Brock is the one who changes his life, who tries to adapt his life to Daniel's desire, but he is more than willing to do so since Daniel is becoming an addictive drug for his system.

Brock and Daniel are completely different and yet so equal. Brock "eats" men like candy, he satisfies his sex urges with them, never letting him being involved, but he does that with lightness and en plain sight; his past lovers always leave with joy and are more than ready to come back if only Brock beckons them. Daniel "drinks" men, he satisfies his blood lust with them, never letting him being involved, but he does that in darkness; his past lovers never remind him and he is alone in his roaming the world. In Daniel, Brock finds the only man able to complete him and making him forget all the others. Brock is ready to leave the playground to settle down with only a man.

Daniel is an interesting character, but he is not the main character of the book; it's Brock who steals all the better scenes, and even if a reader should be find him deprecable, he is too charming to hate him. And then he actually didn't do anything wrong; he is not a cheating man, since he always states clearly that he is not interesting in relationship; he uses men for sex, but he is not a selfish lover, instead he always cares for the other pleasure; he is a bit of a vain, he cares a bit too much for physical appearance, but well, he has to have a fault! All in all I believe that he is a good boy, he is for sure a good friend, and even if he is far from his family, he has a quite good relationship with them. He is also a good employee, even when his employer behaves in a way that made me want to cringe. Probably G.A. Hauser tried to write a "bad boy" character, and instead Brock came out like a little cute angel!

The story is quite long, 190 pages, very sexy and in some part almost funny. Brock and Daniel didn't do much else if not playing around in bed, and when Brock is not playing with Daniel, he is playing with all the men available (but not after he became exclusive with Daniel), and so you will have a lot of sex scenes to enjoy.
