1.3

Title: Temptations of Desire (Desires Entwined #3)
Author Name: Tempeste O’Riley
Publication Date & Length: September 22, 2014 – 200pgs

Synopsis

Alexander James Noble is a gender fluid gay man who gave up on finding Mister Right a long time ago. He’s not asking for much, though. He just wants a guy who loves all of him and appreciates his feminine form too.

At the local LGBTQ center where Alex regularly volunteers, he meets Dal Sayer, an officer of the Milwaukee PD. Because he’s been rejected one too many times, Alex doesn’t trust the huge cop and the interest he shows in him, but once Dal sets his mind on something, he goes all out. Pushing aside his preconceived notions, Alex opens up just a little and soon caves.

From their first date—while dealing with his father’s failing health and his parents’ demands for him to settle down and have children—Dal never takes his eyes off his goal of making Alex his. But proving to Alex he isn’t like all the men who couldn’t see him for who he truly was and only wanted to hide him away is harder than he thought.

First, let me provide a googled definition of Gender Fluid:
Gender Fluid: Gender fluid is a gender identity which refers to a gender which varies over time. A gender fluid person may at any time identify as male, female, neutrois, or any other non-binary identity, or some combination of identities.

I love books, I learn new things everyday. I had no clue that “gender fluid” was the term used for that. I was aware of it, but never really thought of the title.
Anyway, I liked this book. Alex or “Lexie”, was such a sweetie and needed so much loving. What happened to him when he was a teenager sucked. His parents should have been jailed. Really! I’m glad he met Dal, who is another sweetie. They were perfect together but what brought it down to 3 1/2 for me was the jumps.
I know this is book 3, and i admit to not reading book 2 (yet), but it seems that you have had to read book 2 to know what ever scenes skipped for book 3. It was confusing. I wish the author just wrote the whole kidnapping scene in anyway. I also didn’t understand how Dal’s father could be so cool with him being Bi, then suddenly demanding for him to have kids and a wife like “normal” man. I was like “wtf?” Even if his father thought he was dying, the father could have just said he wanted grandbabies. There are other options to have kids these days, ya know. What made me go “huh?” was when there was another time jump and his dad was suddenly ok with Alex. I suppose I have to read book 2 to understand why…?
