All we need is loveGosh It was pretty INTENSE..And in a perverse way BRILLIANT.Utterly TWISTED..And sooooo GOOD WRITTEN It grabbed me from the first page and didn t let me go until the last wordDanielIt is not a typical candy romance Link Hill is an Insane Asylum Doctor Archer and his errant patient Mr White don t fit in a predefined love couple scheme view spoiler I was afraid it wouldn t have a HEA The title The cover Can you imagine to be happy after reading a book with THIS title and THIS cover BUT I SWEAR, I WASDanielhide spoiler THIS BOOK GRABBY HANDS John is a really good friend of mine, I m so pleased he s decided to publish this novella because it jumps up and down on all my buttons so hard that I m not even ashamed, even though I sort of feel like I should be I recommend this to EVERYONE who s into erotic historial m m fiction, even if you think you find the subject matter a bit repulsive and inappropriate That s kind of the point, I think When the Music Stops is a story set in a Victorian lunatic asylum, following the actions of Dr Archer who becomes infatuated with a patient I know loads of people might think OH WAIT, STOP RIGHT THERE don t think that Wuthering Heights is full of repellent characters and actions as well, but the reason that works is that they re never portrayed as sweet fluffy nice people, we re not supposed to sympathise with them in the same way as we do with decent people in nice romantic comedies The whole reason stories like that work is because the characters are so fascinatingly horrible, and it s sort of the same here to a lesser extent We see what Archer is up to, and we know how staggeringly inappropriate it is for doctors to behave that way towards patients but Archer knows it as well, and that makes the story I can t remember the last time I read a character who s this full of juicy Victorian repression and self loathing IT IS DELICIOUS It s all so English and stiff, I love things like this It s like erotic Merchant Ivory, with straitjackets instead of corsets GOD HELP ME I M GONE.It s honestly not just a straightforward story turning the institutional rape of a man who can t consent into something sweet and romantic, which I really would have a massive problem with We start to see fairly early on that Mr White, the patient, might be in control of himself than he seems to be, and it s a really interesting layer to the story and their relationship This is what makes Archer so easy to sympathise with we can see exactly why he forms this attachment with White, and how he struggles against it then struggles to come to terms with how it s not going away.It s a sort of horror as well, which I somehow wasn t expecting the first time I read it stupid, really, considering how obsessed I am with British history I know what went on in Victorian asylums The story is so clever in holding up these two things that we can all pretty much agree are horrific doctors getting off with patients, and the treatments and conditions of asylums of the time and making us re evaluate our opinions It s not always a very pleasant read, but it s compelling and beautiful and sickening and erotic and exciting and dramatic in just the right mix to make it unforgettable It manages to portray a really surprisingly tender love story without ever dulling down the terror of what doctors used to do to their fellow human beings in those asylums.And the scene with the chocolate and the finger sucking in Chapter 5 made me need a wipe down Just saying.Inappropriate erotic historical romance with a happy ending GIVE ME MORE OF THIS GLORY If you re even slightly intrigued by any part of this review, please please give the story a go It s fantastic. 3.5 stars
