Review: Not His Kiss to Take by Finn Marlowe … Free porn that’s highly entertaining

Not His Kiss to TakeNot His Kiss to Take by Finn Marlowe

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Very interesting book. I initially decided to read it because of the mixed reviews on it – some loving it as pure porn and others being bothered by the close to abuse actions – and it’s free. I figured I was up for some free literary porn so why not take a chance.

I have to admit, I loved this book. I found it incredibly entertaining and it’s really close to porn without a plot, but honestly I thought it was really funny and absorbing with a lot hot sex. There’re definitely some problems that skirt the line and I can see why some readers would be disgusted and discomforted by the aspects depicted. If I was reading a book that took itself seriously I probably would have been as well but since I was reading it with the expectation of being unrealistic porn, I didn’t mind the problems.

The plot, such as it is, is a classic hurt/comfort with a large age difference and considerable kink thrown in for good measure. The couple is made up of an older gay doctor (mid 40s I think) who supposedly has such intense and ongoing migraines that he can’t practice medicine anymore. He rescues a young 19ish straight boy that is attacked and traumatized in the bathroom of a local bar on a snowy night. The teen is saving for college and can’t afford a hospital bill and the dr, Evan, decides to take Jamie home to care for him. Evan of course is wildly attracted to Jamie and soon they’re getting it on all the time.

First of all Evan likes his twinks barely legal. He reiterates his desire repeatedly so of course the young Jamie hits all his buttons. Evan definitely crosses the line between his kinks, many of which are medical based such as enemas, and his treatment of Jamie as a patient. I honestly didn’t care since I knew Evan was not treating Jamie like he would in a hospital. Hell Evan gets hard just treating Jamie’s raped-with-a-bottle asshole. It definitely could turn off some readers but again, I was reading it as porn so I didn’t care. Then Jamie is straight. Really straight. He gets into the sex with Evan because the story wants him to and he doesn’t seem molested or taken advantage of I have to say. There’s really no explanation why Jamie would be gay for Evan only, which is how it plays out, but again I went with it.

What I loved most about the story was the humor. Jamie is a hilarious narrator and he constantly keeps Evan on his toes. Jamie has a new sarcastic name for Evan constantly, “Dr. Kinky Bones” was my favorite. Jamie is no one’s victim and he stands up to Evan regularly. Evan likes to dominate in bed and Jamie gets off on a lot of the same kinks. So sexually they’re well matched, even if it makes absolutely no sense that Jamie would be like that but hey – whatever. There are tons of sex scenes and they’re hot and entertaining. Jamie also is not some broken submissive that needs a dominant in his life. He likes Evan’s domination in bed but puts a real stop to it outside the bedroom. In their relationship Jamie demands equal respect and he pretty much ignores Evan’s attempts to scold, parent, or advise him. Jamie is an adult in his own right and he’s determined to be treated that way.

I actually loved reading this for the light fluff porn it was. It’s definitely better written than many comparable books so I think enjoyment hinges on whether the issues of the book are hot buttons for readers. I didn’t mind here but some definitely will.
