Reactions and Reviews: Issue 2

In Quiet Efforts, Doyle has become uncomfortably self-conscious over the fact that Bodie is always unnaturally quiet during their lovemaking, which is otherwise good. He makes it his goal to make Bodie lose control, to cry out, to talk during sex. In the face of Ray's expectations, though, Bodie feels pressured and awkward and is unable to do what Ray wants, until Ray finally realizes his error and takes a different approach entirely. This is one of Shoshanna's earliest Pros fics. I love her writing; she captures the characters and their voices exceptionally well and manages to convey depth of affection without saying too much, or making the characters say too much. This is a modest, unassuming little story, but it's gorgeous and sweet and deeply loving and incredibly sexy. [1]
