Reviewed in the United States on November 17, 2011
Unique. How can I describe better Laura Tolomei‘s work other than unique. if you are a bit tired of the traditional menage or m/m erotica, you have to read this book. Laura Tolomei mentioned that she wrote this story with Halloween in mind. The spirit is 100% there, no doubt about it!. Laura Tolomei should be on everyone’s m/m lover bookcase. Her characters are very real and no matter if her imagination changed from hunting the demons to searching for the soul mate, from dark fantasy and horror to a bit more romance, her work will not leave you indifferent because each of her books are just like the human being behind the author’s name… unique
My first reaction when I started reading the first pages of the book was about the style. It was as if it was the main character's diary. The style was kinda narrative although it was not. The *I* is not used but the way it is written, it really looks like it is the character who is speaking all along. Then, my second reaction was OMG, who is this guy? Is he real? If he is, I hope to do not meet him ever in real life! Then I got hooked. plain and simple.
Laurent is a smart charismatic bisexual guy, knows how to use his handsomeness, extremely ambitious, selfish and has huge commitment issues. So he uses people and does not care if he hurts or not as long as his pleasures and ambitions are satisfied. He does not lie, promise anything but rather flee as a coward. His focus is himself and he remains with his lovers if they do not have or show any feelings and remain at his entire disposal for sex.
Wow. Not the type of character that we can really fall in love with n'est-ce-pas? But you are wrong. dead wrong.
Laurent could be the great looking guy who cross the street and you make a double turn to see more of him. The very good looking guy that every woman or man fantasize to tame and get as a permanent lover. The extreme sensual guy that you know that you will get multiple orgasms because he just knows what to do, when to do it and with what. The player that will put you on your knees, begging for more, not knowing if you will ever get it because security and ordinary are not part of his vocabulary but extreme and dangerous instead. A simple look from him and our world is just upside down. Every single one of us met this kind of man at least one time in our life. The kind of guy that gives us little butterflies in your stomach, waiting that the guy will notice us and when he does, ready to give him whatever he asks for how long he asks... Yeah! THAT guy! You know what or who I am talking about, right? ... Yes. I thought so.
Along the way, Laura Tolomei throw us into a paranormal story. Laurent becomes obsessed with Demons. At that point, you need to have an open mind. It becomes strange, dark, bloody and we enter into another dimension of sex at its purest. The Demon Waiter is not a romance at all but a dark fantasy horror novel so be prepared to do not read a Cinderella story at all!
Of course I will not spoil the end of this story! Lets say that if you are a bit tired of the traditional menage or m/m erotica, you have to read this book. Laura Tolomei mentioned that she wrote this story with Halloween in mind. The spirit is 100% there, no doubt about it!
Laura Tolomei should be on everyone's m/m lover bookcase. Her characters are very real and no matter if her imagination changed from hunting the demons to searching for the soul mate, from dark fantasy and horror to a bit more romance, her work will not leave you indifferent because each of her books are just like the human being behind the author's name... unique!
