*****4.5 Stars*****

“I’m a boy and a girl both, in different ways.Some people call it gender-fluid.”


When I read a friend’s review of this and saw the blurb I just knew it was my kind of book.I adore femme men, I love the heels, the makeup, the long hair, the clothes.And add into the mix a man who is the opposite and I’m in book heaven.


I make no apologies for the fact I like my men to be dirty, really dirty.I’m talking about men being manhandled and pushed around in the most deliciously filthy ways and this book is nothing like that.

These two men don’t fuck
These two men make love
And it is quite beautiful.


Stan is 22 and has just moved to London to start a job working for a fashion magazine.He’s stunningly beautiful and has loads of offers to become a model but that’s definitely not an option for him due to his past.He had the opportunity to go through transition but couldn’t as he doesn’t identify with being transgender.I didn’t really understand fully what being gender-fluid was and thought the Author explained it well, especially in the conversations Stan had with Ben and Tone.


     


Stan meets Ben one night in the bar Ben works in.When Ben first sees Stan he is blown away by his beauty, initially thinking he’s a girl.However, when he realizes Stan is a man he’s not fazed in any way.

For the most part, men didn’t like being come on to by a man who looked more like a girl.A hot girl.A really hot, slightly confusing girl.Stan knew what he looked like he owned it.


This book was not what I expected at all.It’s romantic and sweet.These men don’t rush into bed, they go on dates, they hold hands and their relationship develop at just the right pace.Ben is completely unfazed by Stan’s past, he just sees a beautiful man he wants to be with.On Stan’s part, he’s never had the kind of attention Ben gives him from any other man.


It’s not all rainbows and sunshine, though, when Stan’s demons from the past resurface.However, it wasn’t unnecessary drama and played an important part in these two men’s relationship.

Highly recommended!
