H the twins or Aaron were orced by Steven s kidnapper Those that Alex was doing because Steven s life was threatened I could almost believe Steven orgave him because he overheard what Alex was supposed to do But everything else No I don t care how supposedly deeply in love they are It wouldn t happenThen trying to sound mysterious and tricky with who Steven s kidnapper was just had this entire story going around in circles Knowing about Nathan was really all that was necessary but to have it in between somewhat pivotal chapters No Fail right there You break up the action with than just #One Chapter Even Not To Mention That It Wasn T #chapter even Not to mention that it wasn t right away that the reader was jumping back into Alex s past Personally I think waiting until Nathan s discovered would have been the best point in time to have the lashback Because by the time I learned Nathan was behind it I The Radiant Child forgot all about thoseew Alex s past chapters That may be a good thing or some readers but honestly I orgot because I was bored with the story not because I was wrapped up in any of the drama It was poor drama poorly writtenOne inal thing I ll ocus on is the characterization in any of the drama It was poor drama poorly writtenOne inal thing I ll Tempting Eden focus on is the characterization the main group It was all very cliche and stereotypical The constantlirting touching dirty talk and having sex It was just overwhelming andor annoying That s not how all gay males act And not all gay males want to have threesomes or Talking to Dragons (Enchanted Forest Chronicles, foursomes The only person we knowor sure who wasn t into the idea of three or Talking to Dragons foursomes was Steven but he was kidnapped so any role he could have played in adding diversity to the group was missed I wanted to consider this a 25 rating and boost it up to 3 since goodreads doesn t do halves but then I realized I just couldn t This book is not really my type of book but I thought I would give it a go After all I love Alice in Wonderland androm the sound of the blurb this author really warped it up And he didIn his version Wonderland is a decadent nightclub Three Times the Love filled with every sort of sin you could imagine and it makes it all okay The problemor Alex our protagonist Alice was that he was in love with Steven owner of the white rabbit and Steven wasn t a The Drowning Man fan of some of its vices Like drugs Since Alex bought some to help him get up the nerve to propose he lost his boyfriend Unfortunately he just might lose him permanentlyI gave itour stars because the author did an incredible job of taking Alice in Wonderland and warping it wonderfully into this avant garde world Was it my type of book No Did I like the characters I loved how the author drew them but the characters themselves No In act at the end I *Had To Actually Agree *to actually agree one of the statements made by the bad guy The gist of his words is you can t say you love someone and then go have sex with everything else that moves I m in agreement with that And uite honestly Alex did not have a lot to recommend him I won t tell you what happened at the end of the book but I will tell you it didn t really happen the way I would have liked I m hoping even though I have no plans to read the next book that a certain someone wakes up and walks away I m just not sure Alex can be saved rom the crazy lifestyle he keeps jumping intoThis is not a romance no matter how much Alex and Steven s relationship is brought up It s a wonky trip through Wonderland Prepare GREAT INVESTMENT, THE for the unexpectedReviewed by a nony mouseor Crystal s Many ReviewersCopy provided or revie. Hile being seduced by a pair of twinks who are tweedlehot and tweedlehotter Things only get weirder when Alex learns that Steven is missing and an anonymous phone call warns him that he’ll never see Steven againunless he eats this drinks that and dives deeper down the rabbit hole of decadence This certainly isn’t just another weekend in Wonderla.
