After finishing my lit degree, I completely stopped reading.  I had lost the ability to read for pleasure.  But in early 2013 I discovered reading could be social.  And in the autumn of 2013 I discovered MM romances and that reading could be downright HOT.  I haven't stopped reading since!


I live on Goodreads but I promise to figure out Booklikes eventually.

The Enlightenment of Daniel

The Enlightenment of Daniel - Eli Easton image
I read this book almost entirely in one sitting. So I guess that makes it quite good, right? By the end I was a little antsy and bored but I am pretty sure that was a function of me trying to suppress my ADD for too long and not because of the writing.

I loved Daniel. He was so meticulous. Everything he did was planned and practiced and thought through. He couldn't even go to a baseball game with an 8 year old without spending the prior week reading "Baseball for Dummies," studying the history of the team, learning all there was to know about the roster, etc. Nothing was ever left to chance. Nothing was last minute. There were never any surprises. He did what it took to get what he wanted. And his lack of spontaneity might have gotten boring in a real life relationship, but here it was kinda sexy.

I loved Nick. His struggle felt real to me. He was tired of being unhappy. He was tired of everyone around him being unhappy. But he didn't want to hurt anyone so he just stayed the course until he couldn't do it any longer. And ultimately, once he decided to make a change, it freed everyone to find their true happiness.

But ultimately, the best thing about this book is now I get to read [b:The Mating of Michael|22370569|The Mating of Michael (Sex in Seattle, #3)|Eli Easton|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1401375007s/22370569.jpg|41781960].


Well, no, the best thing was reading this book with Cory, Sandra, Amy, and Catherine. Michael is a close second though.
