We’re back in Bluewater Bay with ALL THE WRONG PLACES. This time, this book is coming to you from Ann Gallagher. I can’t say I’ve read Ann’s books before, however I’ve read books by her other pen names, Lauren Gallagher and L.A. Witt so I was excited about this book.
If you’ve read Gallagher before, then you may know that this woman doesn’t back down from a challenge. She always chooses to write about interesting characters and I think Brennan has to be one of my new favorites. Brennan is asexual, which means that he doesn’t feel a sexual pull to anyone. He’s been cheated on three times and all of his exs say it’s become of him. So when Brennan goes to a sex shop to try and figure out what he can do to stop this, he encounters Zafir, who it turns out, is just like him.
Gallagher goes into great detail, exploring the ins and outs of being asexual. I can’t say I’ve read many books that tackle this so I was deeply interested in learning more about it. So while this lesson in asexual behavior is going on, Gallagher is still moving forward with a believable romance and I must say, I’m quite impressed. Zafir and Brennan are really adorable. I could just read about them talking about stuff for hours, but because they are both asexual, you have to take into consideration that this isn’t going to be your typical M/M romance from this author. These guys aren’t that into sex so the basis of their relationship really is an emotional one. I imagine there will be a lot of people who feel like it’s not enough, that nothing really happens much in the story, but you have to understand that this is the nature of these characters. To make it hotter would just go against the whole point of the story.
So, I’d say try this book out if you’re interested in something completely different. If you keep an open mind, I have no doubt you’ll find this book interesting.
What did you think of our review?
Let us know your thoughts in the comment box below!
When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.
When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
