He’s got a lot of demons to wrestle before he’s got a chance errastes happiness. I highly recommend this book! While Jonathan has more inner conflict going on, David has outward conflicts pressing down on him to make certain choices. Jonathan too does not remain celibate during that time although his experiences are very different and darker than David’s. This was an ongoing religiously-sponsored atrocity that lasted erastex it was finally outlawed in England in I was surprised by the depth of darkness but the story was told well.
Trangressions is Erates’ second novel and is a worthy successor to her firs I discovered Erastes as an author about a year ago and she has earned a place on my list of favorites. He knew that his face was changing as he matured, becoming more lean, accentuating his cheekbones and his straight dark brows.
It’s all part of life, living and dying, loving, losing, letting. Of course, getting the two into bed together is just the beginning.

Dec 26, Mymymble rated it really liked it. No doubt about it, this is David’s story and as the book went on, I found myself wanting to read his parts and the other stuff–not so much. It’s not a romance but it has a happy ending. David and Jonathan, just from the name you understand that they are fated to be together as the heroic figures of the Old Testament they share the name with. His father had informed him that he was going to be away from the forge all day, although he not told his son where he was going, and David had not particularly cared.
I know from her reviews of other books that Erastes has a great dislike for love-at-first-sight, or “insta-love” as she often puts it. It’s nearer pages and the consequences of the events are properly explored.
They have nothing in common but their age. This is the first time I’ve ever started reading a story, given up part way through and then gone back to it and loved it. Erastes initially began writing gay fiction after initially having a start writing slash fiction set in the Harry Potter universe. To say that he was an unsympathetic character is putting it mildly. His body was sun-dried after his bathe, and he could feel his hair clinging damply to his skin. The problem I had with Transgressions is that our two lovebirds, David and Jonathan, spend most of the book apart.
It’s unusual in terms of romances in that the lovers David and Jonathan are parted for a lot of the book.

Apart from the headhopping I mentioned, there were only a couple of minor annoyances which affected my reading of this book. Suddenly David realises why he has never felt any stirrings for the local girls and also why he has strange urges to touch Jon. Although I rated this book a 3, I would say that it’s actually more of a 3.
I instantly took to the way David and Jonathan reacted and interacted with one another, full of youthful exuberance and vigor. You won’t be disappointed. I might try again another time and see if I was just not in the right frame of mind. It just wasn’t the right story for me. Brown straight hair, pale suspicious and unhappy eyes, plain of face with flat cheekbones and a defiant scowl under his wide-brimmed hat.
Wait a minute, isn’t that sacrilege? It’s love, it’s friendship, maybe it’s even a brotherly affection pushed too far, in any way, all the novel turns around this two men and how they met and lost together.
This book had a lot of that – The setting and “historical fiction” background was interesting and enjoyable. Retrieved 12 July The first half of the book is five stars and the last half is three stars, s. David and Jonathan suffered incredibly transgrwssions loving one another and their road back to each other is heartrending.
Instead the historical details were seamlessly intertwined with the daily lives of these men and the other characters in the book. On the whole, given the trials both men go through, I almost feel like it would have been more ‘true’ to avoid the happily-ever-after ending although I know that would have made it almost unpublishable.
