★★★★ 4 Exotic Stars ★★★★
What began in the flames of unbridled young lust now transforms into a tale of new discoveries and joyous second chances. It’s testament to an enduring love that transcends time, distance and circumstance, but which now also threatens the entire fabric of Lincoln’s current middle-age life.
Part erotic novel and part contemporary blog, this deeply emotional story shadows a real-life relationship and actual events – all of which gives this tortured romance a depth of authenticity and pathos which few pure-fiction books can match.
This is a short, memoir type book about a man who has found love and then lost it. It chronicles the passion he felt for her during their time together and then his quest to find her years later after they broke up. Some may say his feelings for her are borderline obsessive. After all, he is married but utterly and hopelessly in love (still) with his long ago girlfriend. But one cannot help their feelings, especially when it comes to your one true love that managed to get away.
Within this book you get a bit of erotica, a bit of heartbreak, and a whole lot of emotions. I enjoyed the writing style of this book. It is written nicely and with a lot of heart. I also enjoyed being able to go along the journey with the author as he reaches out to his long lost love in hopes of rekindling what they once had.
Overall, this is a 4 star book for me. The author put a lot of time and devotion in bringing us his story and I can certainly appreciate that. This book is also pretty fast paced and a short read (only about 90 pages).
