An amusing, CI5-based story set around St Valentine's Day. It's written in first person, a voice that doesn't always work for me, but I find it appealing in the fun of this evolving story. Bodie is the narrator here. It all starts one unexpected morning when he goes into work as usual and has an unwelcome epiphany:
There was nothing new about him, nothing out of the ordinary--but that day, I took one look at him and that was that. Never mind that it was against all common sense, never mind that it ran contrary to the way I'd always thought about myself; Doyle--scruffy, ill-tempered, contentious Doyle, whose wiry, angular form held nothing of the soft curves I'd always favoured--was suddenly exactly what I wanted.
After a day spent in Doyle's distracting company, Bodie has only one desire:
I breathed a sigh of relief, anticipating being able to go home and wank myself silly, but Doyle stuck his head out of the rest room before I could make good my escape.So Bodie instead masochistically spends the evening with a far too discerning Doyle and matters proceed as one might expect. This story doesn't boast much depth, but it's a charming first-time foray with the advantage of a quirkily amusing Bodie as the viewpoint character.
