You know what the hell about it all is? I liked this story! I liked the idea, the characters were likeable and in contrast to some (simple-minded? Prejudiced? Clueless?) people who hate feminine or flamboyant gay men, I couldn't care less if the man is "manly" or not. If I like him, I like him.
BUT. What the hell is wrong with people writing these kind of BDSM scenes? Safe. Sane. Consensual! Ring any bells??? No? Well, it shows! Non-consensual breath play, never negotiated or even mentioned before. Out in the open, in an environment nobody can classify as prone to create trust, and with a guy you don't even know? Practically a stranger? Are you out of your goddamned mind - excuse my French.
Big, fat, shocked NO. This ruined everything for me and I couldn't get over it. One star and not one more for that.
