Reese Armstrong and Hank Seeley have been lovers since High School. They also have a sordid history involving a dark secret and far too many twisted sexual escapades. When the pair make a wager involving the seduction of Reese’s co-worker, computer geek Jeff Hartman, the runaway train that is their lives goes off the rails.
Reese makes the seduction as planned but finds himself falling in love, something Hank has convinced him doesn’t exist. Tired of being a user, Reese lets shy but passionate Jeff into his life. Can he find happiness after all he has been and done? Or will the rich and controlling Hank destroy the new love and pull Reese back into a life full of degradation and emotional emptiness?
Wicked Hearts is a compact, tightly written exploration of sex-based, male on male relationships as possible avenues to real love. Claire Thompson writes with the confidence of a seasoned author and avoids the grammatical pitfalls one tends to associate with self-publishers. The author’s plot knifes through her words and carries the reader effortlessly to the end of the book.
I didn’t like Hank or Reese, which is what Thompson intended. These men are a portrait of what many of us in the straight world profess to hate. Yet the promiscuous and severely damaged Reese mirrors any of us who have been deeply marked by life but somehow manage to reach toward love.
There are no surprises in Wicked Hearts. The plot is easy to anticipate. No, what makes this little book interesting is the struggle of two men, uncomfortable with their lives, to achieve something so many of us take for granted.
