Review: Knight of Pleasure

Knight of Pleasure
Knight of Pleasure by Simone Anderson
My rating: 3 of 5 stars

GRL12 Author 1 (of 146) – Simone Anderson

I’d give this 3.5 stars rounding down to 3. When I was looking through books for the bingo category this week, I choose Simone Anderson because I had previously read a book of hers and enjoyed it, and I knew that she was attending GLR12, so I could double use the book for another challenge (yeah, I’m that much of a reading challenge dork).

I liked the pairing of Ethan and Dean and how their relationship developed. I think one of the better things about the book was how Dean who had never been in a BDSM relationship before didn’t just agree to be in one, like it seems to happen in so many other books – you could see his conflict in making his decision and his struggles between the Marine that he had been and the submissive that he was at heart. At the same time, I think Ethan tried to push him into the scenario too quickly and at times I thought he could actually damage their budding relationship rather than strengthen it

One of my only tiny pet peeves in general is the use of military terminology and inaccuracies – the Marine Corps symbol is the eagle, globe and anchor, not just the globe and anchor. A uniform hat is a cover, not a cap (this wasn’t in this book, but another one I read around the same time)

GayRomLit 2012

I read a wide variety of books (as if you can’t tell from my varying reviews). But one of genres that I love the most is m/m romance. There is just something intriging about two guys falling in love, and finding happiness together.

Last year a group of authors who write in this genre held the 1st Annual GRL in New Orleans. Unfortunately, I was unable to attend, but when they published the dates for the get-together in 2012, I was on it. So in October, I will be heading out to New Mexico, where I have never visited before and spending 4-5 fun filled days with many authors and other readers. Can’t you tell that I am a little bit psyched ;)

In honor of this, I am going to make it a goal to try and read at least 1 book by each author who is attending, for a total of 146 books. Look for the tag GayRomLit12 here and on twitter ;)
