4.0 su 5 stelle Amazing 17 marzo 2016

I am blown away by how good this book is. Ironically, I found out about it when reading a negative review of another Bdsm fics that was terrible, and I'm grateful for the rec. the characters in this are so alive and 3-dimensional and the writing is absolutely beautiful--really, some of the best writing I've ever read.

This book is extremely hot, but also extremely touching and gut wrenching. I loved the Bdsm and Master/slave elements to the story. They're pretty hardcore in my opinion, but probably not that hardcore. It does go much farther than what I typically see in Bdsm books, it goes beyond just spankings and bondage into much rougher sex and more pain. Delicious.

The story's very much on the serious side, with very little lightheartedness, and it definitely gets darker the further in you read. It drives me batty when reviews don't go into the disturbing elements of a book so just as a warning to others: there are heavy mentions of past abuse, both physical and sexual. Marcus's past is deeply disturbing, but in this book it really works, just something to be aware of if reading about those subjects is not your thing.

I did find one scene later in the book that I found unsettling. One rough sex scene is from Thomas's pov, and he reflects that Marcus has so much anger in him at that moment that he's going to have sex with Thomas regardless of whether or not he gives consent, and it's compared to almost being rape. That's not a particular word I want to read about in a consensual sex scene. It is made clear that Thomas does want this, but I found it a little off putting.

I'm not usually a fan of the trope that the Dom is pretty much a Dom solely because of his horrific past, as authors tend to use it as some sort of explanation as to why someone would get off on mixing pain and humiliation with sex. But the author handles it well here, and I definitely had tears in my eyes during some of the more painful scenes.

All in all, I'm so glad I found this gem, it was well worth the read.

2.0 su 5 stelle A lot that's good, but some major flaws for me 2 marzo 2016
Di Maugham - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
Rough Canvas certainly had its appeal - the characters were interesting, especially Thomas, and I like the lost love reunited trope. The relationship between the two main characters was nicely drawn, the dialogue felt natural (although some of the serious speeches towards the end were a little OTT).

However, there were a few issues that put me off. First, while some of the sex scenes were hot, there was one, in a BDSM club, which was so outlandish and ludicrous I laughed out loud - you sure can't say Joey Hill has no imagination but it was a bit absurd, involving ridiculous automated sex toys and a glass bottomed fountain and men arrayed in a complicated decorative pattern. The first scene also involved Marcus (a 40 year old man) coming 7 times in one evening. Good lord, I'm surprised he didn't end up in hospital.

Also there was an undercurrent of mildly misogynist remarks - people talking about feelings were insulted by being called a girl, when someone else was upset they were described as a shrewish bitch - there were others I can't remember but it was enough for me to notice.

There was also one memorable remark in which Marcus notes that there are places in the world that "traffic in human slavery for despicable reasons" and he finds himself almost wishing he could be in a place like that with Thomas - it's obviously not meant to suggest Marcus condones it or really thinks that, but the thing is, human trafficking and forced labour really does exist, and it struck me as a grossly offensive comparison, even knowing it was just rhetorical.

For most people these things might be minor, but they're enough for me that I wouldn't buy any other Joey Hill books, so if you don't like the sound of this, be forewarned.

5.0 su 5 stelle Richly Textured 18 giugno 2016
Di Jennifer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Joey Hill does a fabulous job with this book. Thomas and Marcus may be homosexual characters but their love and desire for one another is so real and deep that it all but scalds many of the pages. Both characters are deeply nuanced. They have flaws, histories and very real seeming personalities. These things are what makes this book great.
Yes there is dominance and submission involved in many of the erotic encounters. Yes it is between two men. Regardless of this I was turned on by the visuals the author created in her writing. If you have never tried to read a homosexual romance or erotica I recommend trying this one as the story is more than sex. It is about family acceptance, self acceptance, finding the other half of one's self and learning that to have a real love both sides must open up regardless of dominant, submissive, man or woman.

Talented artist, Thomas, 27, was making his way in NYC and in a D/s relationship that was fulfilling. He moves back home to North Carolina to take over the family business when his Dad dies. The hardware shop bell rings, and in walks 6" of hard muscle, long black hair, green-eyed, Marcus, his Master. They strike a bargain. Thomas will fill canvases with his erotic paintings and stay a week with Marcus, so the painting sales can sustain the family. Thomas is thinner and has an ulcer from his family slowly killing him with their hatred and demands. Marcus steps up and does everything he can to help Thomas. Marcus loves Thomas, with his soft curls and dark eyes, as a person and as his partner, and Thomas leaving had shattered Marcus. Thomas is torn between family duty and a painting life with Marcus. It's a choice between duty and passion. He doesn't want to let either down. Should he continue to help his ungrateful, hate-filled Mom and brother, or choose a soul freeing future with Marcus and his dreams? You'd think it would be an easy choice, but no, it is very complicated.
Much happens in this tale, as the bargain reveals more hurdles to leap, more viciousness, and insecurities come to light. There are many events, flashbacks to past troubles, with insights, violence, and of course we do not get all of our questions answered. But that is okay, because we can think about a future for them from the hints of a bright future we were shown.
This isn't a light read, but deeply emotional, with issues in the way, hope for happiness, BDSM and the mind-bending true love these men have. Beautifully written, captivating, thought provoking, and a marvelous tale.
We get a HFN, but really, the scenes we are shown were actual peeks at the future. Brilliant !
I will be reading more from Joey W. Hill.
Highly recommended for a riveting read. ENJOY !

5.0 su 5 stelle Joey W. Hill does it again 12 novembre 2009
Di Charly T. Anchor - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Warning: This review might contain what some people consider SPOILERS.

Rating: 9/10

PROS:
- The romance in this book is beautiful and sensuous and just absolutely RIGHT. Hill establishes a strong sexual connection between Marcus and Thomas within 20 pages, and although I worried that Marcus wasn't as emotionally dependent upon Thomas as Thomas was on him, that fear didn't stick around for long. Each character very clearly NEEDS the other.
- The sex is marvelous. I've read other m/m books that I found slightly hotter, but the sex in this book is needy and emotional and lovely. If you're just a Joey W. Hill fan and aren't used to reading m/m, this is as good a book as any to introduce you to the genre. Above all, the sex here--even the scenes in which Marcus punishes Thomas--is an expression of love. It's moderate to fairly hard BDSM, though, so if you're not into that, I'm not sure you'd enjoy it: Thomas even thinks when they're in a BDSM club in one scene, "I can't tell if you hate or love me in this place."
- The two leads sort of take turns providing the emotional strength in the relationship. When one starts to lose sight of who he is or begins to wallow in misery or dwell too much on the past, the other steps up and provides exactly the kind of support his lover needs. It's a dynamic relationship that fairly screams "love" and "friendship" and "devotion."
- Marcus is urbane and sophisticated and on occasion, very sharp and funny. One of my favorite lines of dialogue from him is when Thomas's mother says that New York is not conducive to establishing roots or a home and Marcus replies, "That's right. There are no families in New York. We're all just a bunch of wandering nomads addicted to Starbuck's." (see con below also)
- There are some delightful moments with secondary characters who turn out to be quite different from how I first expected them to be.

CON:
- Marcus can be ever-so-slightly off-putting at times when he's upset. He says some rather awful things to certain people, for example, and toward the end of the book, he goes into a sort of melancholic rage at one point and comes close to endangering one of his dearest friends.

Overall comments: This author is REALLY good at creating three-dimensional characters with deep emotional scars that result from horrible, torturous pasts. Every one of her books that I've read so far portrays a bone-deep connection between the two leads because at least one of them is so damaged that the other character is NECESSARY for his/her survival. I think if you enjoy m/m, this is an excellent read.
