Nicole Austin – Scandalous

{September 16, 2007}   Rough Canvas by Joey Hill


When his father dies, Thomas is forced to abandon a burgeoning art career in New York. As difficult as it was to give up his lifelong dream, it’s nothing next to walking away from the man he loves. Marcus taught him to embrace who he is, a sexual submissive who responds to the touch of only one Master. But why would the sophisticated Marcus need some farm kid from the South?

Then Marcus shows up and offers him a way to continue his art career and help his family. There’s only one hitch — he asks Thomas to spend a week with him in the Berkshires. Thomas knows he should refuse. But he’s never been able to say no to his Master.

Nic’s Recommendation:

Book 6 in the Nature of Desire series lives up to the other 5 books and is every bit as wonderful. Joey Hill’s books always delve deep into the soul of her characters as well as their emotions. You will develop a vested interest in their lives, and feel as if they are old friends.

Quite frankly, she blows me away! I rode a roller coaster of emotions, at times wanting to smack both Thomas and Marcus for being idiots, and other times wanting to give them high-fives or hugs. The sex is raw, primal and totally masculine. Yum!

Note: This book contains BDSM subject matter, but is not an extreme title (ie. No humiliation or other extremes of the genre), and is the story of a smokin’ hot m/m relationship.

Rough Canvas is available from Ellora’s Cave. I highly recommend you give this soulful series a try!
