Sep 26, Saskia Walker rated it it was amazing. I'm a big fan of Nikki's work. This story is set in the indie music world. The protagonist, Kara, is a singer in a band, so that had my attention right away. She quickly shows us how the music world can be I'm a big fan of Nikki's work.
She quickly shows us how the music world can be alluring, yet brittle edged and tough, all at the same time. Kara is already embroiled in an edgy affair with her guitarist, Tam, when an old flame — and now head of a record company — enters the scene. Passion and conflict abound!
Filled with tension and conflict -- and wildly erotic -- this story will have you fogging up your windows. Jul 10, Vanessa Wu rated it it was amazing. Nikki Magennis is a poet who is very much in touch with her feelings and, I discovered, very much in touch with mine.
The opening chapter of this book made my jaw drop open. Not just my jaw as a matter of fact. The descriptions of hot, urgent sex are vivid and convincing because the use of language is very subtle and skilful. I identified very strongly with Kara. I spent a good few days reading this book because I wanted to savour it. In my experience it's rare to encounter language this good in Nikki Magennis is a poet who is very much in touch with her feelings and, I discovered, very much in touch with mine.
In my experience it's rare to encounter language this good in a novel of this kind. OK, don't run away with the idea that it's full of fancy metaphors. It's raw and simple. The background of the story is entirely credible but painted in broad, clean brushstrokes that allow the characters to come to the fore. The scenes are filled with drama and tension; it's an emphatically erotic tension and it's sustained for the duration of the narrative.
These are virtues that can easily be underestimated. There is a powerful literary intelligence at work here and I was delighted to be able to surrender myself to it again and again. I trusted it completely and I wasn't once disappointed.
I am going to search out more of Nikki's work. I think I need to be careful, though, because I could easily become addicted.
