Giving and Taking Reviews
In the third book in the Pawprints series, Anne Cain returns to her first couple, Adrian and Lal. Lal is a shapeshifter cat from an alien planet who arrived on Earth running away from his former Master; where he comes from, Master and pet are words to identify both the owner/pet relationship than the sexual one. Lal and his brother were raised to be sexual toy and submissive lovers for a young Master. In his human form Lal resembles a bit the cat he is, with the hair that are really his pelt, black and white, and the same hair he has on his groin; plus his tongue, as human, is a bit more rough than usual (and this could be really interesting during sex).Anyway, Adrian and Lal are leaving for a cruise with Adrian's best friend, Marty, and his lover Jason. At the airport they find that the flight is overbooked and Lal has to shift in his cat form to be taken aboard as a pet. But during the flight, he plays the role of the little sad cat until Adrian frees him, and Lal suddenly latches himself on his favorite Adrian's body part, his lap. And here you can imagine me while reading and saying "Nooooo, the author can be dare... Oooooooooh yes she dares!"... let me say that she pushes till the very limit, but at the end, the sex scene takes a more normal trend... if having sex in an airplane could be considered normal!The story is not very long, less than 60 pages, but it's very nice. I really like that Lal spends a lot of time in his feline form, and even when he is in human form, his behavior is more like a mischievous cat, or at least a very playful guy. For Lal, in both form, physical contact is equal to love and he "needs" that contact, even when they are not having sex. Almost all the book is about Lal and his adventures, and Adrian is only a nice supporting character... very useful when at hand, but a bit behind the scene. Also nice supporting performance of Marty and Jason, would be interesting reading about their love story.http://elisa-rolle.livejournal.com/44...
I've been searching for a gay novel that isn't so absolutely shallow, pointless and didn't made me want to toss my cookies for a few months. I've always had a soft spot for gays in the peripheral of straight romances (ex. "the best friend")and wanted to read a book from the point of view of such a person. I wasn't looking for something erotic but that seemed to be the dominating genre when featuring a gay, adult lead so I figured I'd give what I basically saw as book porn a try. At first the sex scenes made me cringe but it grows on you. Go figure. What I hated was the fact that most gay romances were so terribly written! It sounded like the authors of these books weren't writing a story but pouring their sexual fantasies onto paper without thought for character or plot development. The first book in this series was okay, nothing that really stood out about them amongst other books chalked full of man on man action but this one, Giving and Taking, is probably the best I’ve read so far. Funny. Mildly clever. There’s some risk involved in the main characters’ sexual exploits. Conflict. All in all I liked it. The writing could have been better and it was really short but I hope Anne Cain writes more of this series or something else of similar quality.
I skimmed this one. Now that I'm used to Cain's style, there were certain parts I just didn't allow my mind to register [ie. the 'you-know-what' lengthening and hardening 17 times, and the 3 O's by each chara in one romp, and the complete lack of need for preparation, etc:]. Reading about Lal and Adrian again was rewarding, especially how cute they were outside of the bedroom. Wasn't too interested in the James x.Marty pairing and their excitement over the 'proposal' was kind of weird; for some reason, I would have thought/expected it to be James proposing to Marty and thought maybe it would have gone better that way.
Short and sweet. Love the couples. A little problem, how can Lal travel and take the plane (at first he was supposed to take it at a human not as a cat) if he doesn't have an identity?Note: Someone have to explain to me how come this book (and the other two) are on the Best Gay BDSM list??? O.o
