RELEASE DATE: September 1, 2017
Alexander Popescu is a university lecturer in a quiet German town. He’s a respectable man in his thirties who stays fit, has a decent career and travels alone—his only vice is an occasional greasy meal. And beer. And violent computer games. Nobody has to know about the other Alex—the acclaimed porn writer. His ingenious erotic fantasies earn him good money and keep his capricious mind harmlessly entertained.
When his young friend and protégé Christian transfers to Freiburg for medical school, Alex is overjoyed…and terrified that Christian will find out about Alex’s indecent alter ego. The time they spend together, as lovely as it is, could overturn Alex’s carefully balanced life. Suddenly, the writing is not good enough, his hair seems to be thinning, his careful hookups leave him unfulfilled, and his dreams are haunted by the innocent young man he’s vowed to protect.
However, Christian is not a boy any more. He’s a grown man of twenty-one, clever and deadly attractive. And he’s hiding some secrets of his own.
Dirty Mind… yes, I absolutely love the title. Roe Horvat is a new author for me but as I read the blurb I knew I had to try their story. And oh my, what a true gem I have found.
I’m sure you all know that amazing feeling when you just click with an author’s style. This is what happened here with me. After a few pages I just felt that this book has a fantastic flow, an entertaining, sarcastic, gripping style and it was everything I love in this genre with the most amazing feels imaginable.
The book has a very simple plot but the execution makes it a memorable story and it earned its rightful place in my regular reread folder.
The build up and pace are perfect, at least to my taste. We get to experience step by step how our MC feels and with every scene our involvement is getting deeper and deeper. The highs and lows, his inner struggles are wonderfully portrayed and my heart is so full of love and all the warm and fuzzies that I am starting it all over again. I loved all the secondary characters as well. They are very well written, unique and intriguing.
If you enjoy stories with true feelings, great depths, and some sizzling hot, sensual and very emotional sexytime, this a perfect read for you. Highly recommended.
