Review by Lynn Loper
Jane Davitt's "Drawing Closer" is real, good, honest-to-God fiction, and porn too - good, hot porn.
You remember the characters. When was the last time you remembered the characters in porn, except in fanfic? You live through the story with the two men involved. And when it ends, you want to know more.
Charles, Dr. Charles Stanway, has problems. Something terrible happened to him back in England, something that wasn't strictly his fault, but that he was a factor in. He wants to teach quietly in the United States.
But Gray Collins, an artist and one of his students, won't let it happen. He sniffs around, he poses, he's pretty blatant. There's something he wants: to be controlled. And he thinks Professor Stanway is the one to do it.
He's right. But the road to the end takes you through the emotions of people you can believe, people for whom sex is a part of life, not something that always leads to bliss; these are not machines stuck on one setting. You feel with, and for, the characters.
I have to say I was already familiar with Jane Davitt through her fanfic; it's excellent, and I recommend that too. But "Drawing Closer" is terrific, and I recommend it highly.
