the uninhibited partier were total opposites, they had always shared an inexplicable bond Nick knows he should stop saving the out of control Holly, but when Holly hits rock bottom hard and publicly he can t resist coming to his rescue one last time Can t resist the feeling of having Holly need him againBringing Holly back to New York City, Nick gives Holly the chance to face his demons and break his dangerous habits while keeping Holly s presence a secret from Nick s wife He doesn t want to face Caroline s hatred of Hollyor the reasons she might have to resent himThen the tables are turned Just as Holly pulls himself together, Nick s life falls apart Now it s up to Holly to bring Nick back from the brink and to make Nick finally face the desires he s long denied This book is a fevered dream of an obsessive almost all consuming love And I loved it Probably the best way to enjoy this book is to inhale it in one go so as to be swept up in the deep and almost visceral need Holly has for Nick and his attentions and how Nick finally wakes up to the fact that he cares for Holly muchthan just as a friend Overall I d highly recommend experiencing the book in the fantastic narration of Max Tatch You ll be enveloped in the all encompassing emotions betwe This book is a fevered dream of an obsessive almost all consuming love And I loved it Probably the best way to enjoy this book is to inhale it in one go so as to be swept up in the deep and almost visceral need Holly has for Nick and his attentions and how Nick finally wakes up to the fact that he cares for Holly muchthan just as a friend Overall I d highly recommend experiencing the book in the fantastic narration of Max Tatch You ll be enveloped in the all encompassing emotions between Nick and Holly.Nick and Holly have known each other since college and ever since Holly has been trying every antic in the book to attract Nick s attention This worked until adult life started and they drifted apart For Holly this has led to a path of self destruction and when he s at his lowest Nick comes and rescues him To put Holly back together Nick comes up with a set of rules for Holly to follow It works and that is the beginning of their particular brand of D s, one that at first has nothing to do with sex but with surrender from Holly with the knowledge that Nick will hold him together when he screws up or falls apart The journey for Holly and Nick to get together isn t immediate and I like that Anah Crow, Dianne Fox allow time for Holly to heal and become better as he s struggling not just with what he thinks are unrequited feelings for Nick but also a painful family history and all the damage he s inflicted on himself Later when Nick s carefully constructed life collapses Holly is able to be there for him and it feels right and natural The fact that he chooses or needs to be submissive to Nick doesn t make him a helpless or weak person Their relationship is an expression of love that is fulfilling for their emotional needs They are each other s real thing.There is no sex until perhaps the last third of the book but it s very satisfying when it does happen However that s not what this book is about And I didn t miss it It s about emotional intimacy and being as entwined as two people can be and still remain two people And though there is a D s element to the relationship it has nothing to do with perhaps traditional BDSM ideas It s better It feels true Real.I d recommend it Yes This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers To view it, click here This was an incredible story From beginning to end, I couldn t put it down The characters felt so real, I couldn t help but feel sympathy for Holly or anger towards Caroline or just about every other emotion while I was reading this While the plot is simple, it s still interesting watching the characters grow The story takes us from Nick finding out Holly is in danger of killing himself, through drugs and alcohol, to saving Holly In turn, when Holly finally gets his feet back under himself, This was an incredible story From beginning to end, I couldn t put it down The characters felt so real, I couldn t help but feel sympathy for Holly or anger towards Caroline or just about every other emotion while I was reading this While the plot is simple, it s still interesting watching the characters grow The story takes us from Nick finding out Holly is in danger of killing himself, through drugs and alcohol, to saving Holly In turn, when Holly finally gets his feet back under himself, things turn upside down for Nick by a cheating wife, Holly comes to the rescue and the relationship Holly and Nick have becomesintimate andsatisfying than any other relationships they ve had in the past.In the beginning of the book, Holly was in all kinds of hell He was going through withdrawals and trying to fight his instant reaction to get close to Nick He was sad and angry and just wanted to be loved and told he s not a failure Within the first impression of Holly, I instantly liked him Yeah, he was an alcoholic drunk addict with a sex addiction but that drew me in because of the way he reacted to Nick when Nick flew across country to save him I loved how we saw Holly at his worst and then watched him change and reform into the man that eventually helps Nick out of his crisis I loved Holly for the simple reason of him just wanting to please Nick Nick, on the other hand, has the perfect life He s a successful journalist with a perfect wife but he has one flaw he can t just leave Holly in the wind He thrives on Holly needing him but not just that, he needs Holly to need him I wasn t quit sure what to think of Nick at first He seemed like an overly demanding guy but it becomes clear that he s just afraid something bad would happen to Holly And, while his life slowly started to revolve around Holly is when I started falling in love with Nick, too The simple pleasures he got from just looking at Holly, speaking to Holly or hearing from Holly made me like Nick for reasons I don t even know why LolThis was definitely a sweet story between long lost friends and just the writing alone will draw you in The fact that the story revolved around the characters and their lives and not sex allowed me to enjoy and appreciate itThe secondary characters brought a lightness to the story because they somehow mellowed out the severeness of Nick and Holly s situation, if that makes any sense They also gave us an even greater incite into Holly and Nick s personalities I d absolutely recommend this book to everyone who s looking for something with a simple plot and loving characters Fair warning, though While this isn t a bdsm book, the relationship between Holly and Nick eventually turns into one of submissive and dominate In which it pleases Holly to do what Nick says and, at times, ask Nick permission to do simple things such as drink coffee or go to work While it may seem a bit weird in the beginning, I thought it suited their relationship quite well.This definitely is one of my favorite books and, without question, going to be read many times from me in the future image error Hard to rate this one Like a few other reviewers, I have to mark down significantly in my case for the fact that this book drastically changed tone, and quality, at about the 65 70% point If it had ended there I d have given it a 4.5 for good writing, well developed and engaging characters at least most of them the wife is a bit of a bad guy caricature , a great set up with a lot of conflict, and an unusual and compelling relationship Nick s rescue, Holly s slow and difficult recovery Hard to rate this one Like a few other reviewers, I have to mark down significantly in my case for the fact that this book drastically changed tone, and quality, at about the 65 70% point If it had ended there I d have given it a 4.5 for good writing, well developed and engaging characters at least most of them the wife is a bit of a bad guy caricature , a great set up with a lot of conflict, and an unusual and compelling relationship Nick s rescue, Holly s slow and difficult recovery all this was unusually well done, engrossing and captivating But the remainder of the book gets a much, much lower rating,in the 2.5 range After the initial coming together the conflict is entirely resolved though it need not have been, especially since Nick had, apparently, never been with a man until that point , and the story loses all momentum and oomph and becomes basically nothingthan a series of sex scenes with a slight bdsm element that is never fully developed, seems to come out of nowhere, feels baffling and unnatural in the context of the book , and is entirely superfluous The immediate mutual gushing adoration between Nick and Holly e.g., every single conversation peppered with I love you, long declarations to each other about their feelings, the fact that the two can t be parted for even a day feels over the top and excessive and,important, feels inconsistent with the characterizations the authors developed so carefully in the first part of the book In fact, to a large extent much of what had earlier made the characters so compelling disappears The inconsistency, abrupt change in the tone and pacing of the story and the characters behavior, and the overall lackluster nature of the final third ruined for me what had been an unusually enjoyable read up to that point I slogged through, but I had a difficult time finishing You can rarely come across two characters who deserve to end up togetherthan these two It s almost a hurting desire you have for them, because it is so obvious how much they love each other and how much they care.While the first part of the book is centered on their messed up lives and the distance they d created between them, it is still interesting to read about the process which led them from being strangers to friends again The transition was so easy and yet is was anything but Just You can rarely come across two characters who deserve to end up togetherthan these two It s almost a hurting desire you have for them, because it is so obvious how much they love each other and how much they care.While the first part of the book is centered on their messed up lives and the distance they d created between them, it is still interesting to read about the process which led them from being strangers to friends again The transition was so easy and yet is was anything but Just when you think their new life story might begin, you are thrust into new difficulties and the role reversal is simply beautiful.It takes a while before you get to see them together as they are supposed to be, but even that holds a few surprises and the beautiful way Holly loves just blew me away There are a few sad and difficult parts in this book but I wouldn t call it angsty Unlike other books it s the simple introduction to realistic problems and the way the characters deal with them I loved the fact that there were no misunderstandings and unnecessary complications But still, their journey was anything other than simple.I think this one is worth the time and I recommend it Mi r cord lo dejo en el 2% gracias a esta perla That woman had no right to punish Holly that way, no right to punish him at all if she couldn t manage to keep him under control.No tengo idea si Holly es solo un imb cil o un tigre que se ha escapado del zoo, pero tampoco me quedo a enterarme.
