Usually, I don't get reviews in this soon for a book that has just been released. And this review, to me, is worth a great deal for two reasons: one, I didn't solicite the review, and two, I'm a fan of this reviewer, Amos Lassen. When I'm shopping for something to read, I usually check out his reviews first to see what he has to say about the book I'm going to purchase. And I couldn't be more thrilled about him reviewing ALL ABOUT YVES.

Amos Lassen (Little Rock, Arkansas) - See all my reviews
This review is from: All About Yves (Kindle Edition) Field, Ryan. "All About Yves", Ravenous Romance, 2010. Clever Title, Clever Book Amos Lassen The title of Ryan Field's new book, "All About Yves", isn't the only thing that is clever about it. Field is a good writer and he again builds characters that are well created and totally believable. He also writes excellent erotica. Marco Denny is the hero. He is a male model with an international reputation and has everything a person might want. He has money and he has been in a relationship for fifteen years. What bothers him is that time moves on and he does so with it. At 35, he is still popular and requested but he feels that as he moves into what he calls "middle age" that he may lose his popularity in a culture that is so youth oriented. One night, young Yves Marsiano, 20, appears outside of his dressing room and the time comes for Marco to face what he is so afraid of. Yves worships Marco and he is willing to do whatever it takes to please him. He gives Marco a sad story about the difficulties he has had during growing up and Marco decides to hire him as his personal assistant. Now we see that there is more to this than suspected and Yves turns out to be quite an ambitious young man. He watches Marco and notes every move and this seems to flatter Marco. When some unusual things begin to happen, Marco becomes suspicious and suddenly Marco's world is turned inside out. His darkest fears come true and his career is about to come tumbling down. This is not a difficult story and it is something that many of us face when we realize that time marches on. Ryan Field makes this into a good read with lots of erotica. It is not a book you have to think about, just sit back and enjoy the read.
