Curious by R.G. Alexander
Curious is about the steamiest, smuttiest book I’ve ever read. If you’re not into some seriously hot and graphical descriptions of M/M action, this is sooo not the story for you. It’s the kind of novel where the story is only a backdrop to the sexy-times, the in-between that is essential in order to get to the good stuff.
It’s basically porn in written form where the dirty deeds play in your mind instead of on pay-per-view.
Curious is the first book in the series The Finn Factor, and it’s about two long-time friends – Owen Finn and Jeremy Porter – who starts to redefine their friendship when Owen asks Jeremy for a somewhat unexpected birthday gift. Jeremy, who’s had a crush on Owen for what seems like forever, agrees, and that is the start of the hot and heavy between the bisexual Jeremy and the supposedly heterosexual Owen.
There is a story line somewhere. But I couldn’t relate it if my life depended on it. Because the naughty parts are so god damn panty-melting (even though there aren’t any panties involved), the actual story is totally forgettable. The only development you’re interested in as a reader are the changes in the relationship between Jeremy and Owen. The explosive feelings accompanying a brand new romance, the insecurity of not knowing if the feelings are returned, the fear of estrangement from family beacuse of one’s sexuality. And the sex. All. That. Sex.
After reading Curious, I tried a couple of the other Finn Factor books. As you may have guessed, they’re all about members of the Finn family and their endeavors to find their own happily ever after. And it just so happens that they get to have plenty of orgasms on the way. However, I didn’t think any of the others could measure up (!) to Curious.
Anyway, if you like guys, this book will really get you in the mood, so make sure to have a partner or appropriate props nearby.
I'm a Swedish book nerd reading mostly steamy English romance novels. And since there is so much good stuff out there, and so much shitty stuff too. I just want to give credit where it's due (and diss the rest).
