There is something about historical kink that just works for me Maybe it's the language of the era Maybe it's the outfits I'm not sure but it's a potent cocktail when you combine a Victorian setting kink and finessed prose that'll have me sitting at that bar for uite some time long past closing This era engenders that desperate sort of romance probably due to all the intrinsic repression and standardized morality Behind Locked Doors is a true romance between Edward and Isaac that remains true to the time period wherein being deviant in any way shape form or fashion nearly always resulted in ostracism It's not only that I want I want it all I want to fall asleep and wake up with you I want to be able to call you mine in public I want to be able to write about my love for you because I have the words in my head but it is forbidden that I put them to paper Edward has married a charismatic outgoing and feisty French girl whom he loves as a friend Unfortunately their marriage has robbed her of vibrancy largely due to the fact that Edward is gay and avoids her for the most part thereby making intimacy problematic Edward blames himself for her unhappiness but society dictates that he maintain the ruse Still he has needs that supersede his sexual desiresEdward is a bit of a masochist has been since he was a boy in school manufacturing ways to get disciplined Isaac is a professional dominant and a chance meeting three years ago brought them together but they do not have a sexual relationship initially I actually found their relationship uite refreshing The lack of sex coupled with the repression made for a very romantic love story Edward has constructed an image of arrogance to keep others at bay and avoid relationships that could reveal his deviance This facade leaves him isolated and socially awkward but serves his purposes Isaac has learned to see the real Edward beneath the veneer Edward's a complex character one a liked and disliked in nearly eual measures He is very forthright save for the infidelity which I respected but I didn't respect his relationship with his 6 year old son He's somehow gotten it into his head that Peter doesn't like or love him and has given up hope of developing a loving relationship with him On than one occasion I found myself muttering he's 6 you git Of course he loves you You're his father then rolling my eyes There was also something about his characterization that didn't sit well with me and perhaps it's just my interpretation but there was a subtle intimation that Edward is uncomfortable in any sort of commanding role which struck me as a distorted and somewhat disingenuous view of a submissive Isaac's characterization was lovely though I thoroughly enjoyed how bubbly and outgoing he was paired with how controlling and uietly commanding he was within the context of a scene; it was like a light switch He's also very intuitive and relies on his instincts where Edward is concerned which propels their relationship forward from professional to personalTheir story struck a chord with me but I'm a sucker for these types of stories as I said initially I know the cheating will be off putting for many as will the fact that Behind Locked Doors is non linear There are flashbacks that encompass Edward and Marie's meeting as well as the 3 years of Edward's relationship with Isaac At times I had difficulty keeping track of the time jumps but not often By and large I sank into this world that Kinsley has created Plus there were stockings and garters not traditional MANTIES but I'll take itInappropriate MANTIES pic Blog only An ARC was provided in exchange for an honest review
