Reviewed for Hearts On Fire Reviews

Poor Claude. He is the heir apparent to the Pendragon Hotel, a place that caters to gay men, a place where a gay man should feel safe, comfortable and able to be himself. Not poor Claude. He promised his father he would remain professional at all times. This comes to mean that he is so distanced and remote, no one knows anything about him. So he is a dominant gay man never looking at the men at work, never participating, never being a part of the group.

When he is introduced to Gavin, a dedicated nudist who answers the door nude, he is attracted, confused and completely unwilling to admit his real self. Gavin is not only out, but he is unabashedly accepting of himself. He is subby and bratty. He wants Claude, but he wants him as an equal partner – he won’t be hidden away and he won’t be part of a secret. When he asks Claude if he is ashamed to be seen with Gavin, I wanted to smack Claude. Get it together man! As Gavin says, “No man in his right mind would submit to a coward.” Awesome.
It’s a great thing, watching Claude grapple with himself, and you want him to win.
