Love takes many forms all of which are, in my opinion, truly beautiful. Clearly the author agrees with me as he tells a lovely tale of love. It is sad, funny, warm, perverse and above all, beautiful. If you choose this title you will be the better for it. A masterpiece Mr Kemp. Congratulations.

Daniel Kemp’s new book WHY? sets the bar very high, even for him. I found Why? a pleasant read full of complex and compelling social issues. The players in this story were likeable but conflicted and came to life right before my eyes as I read the pages hungrily. Every man remembers fondly back to the day when sex was new, exciting and a test to his manhood. Why? by Danny Kemp, captures that magical time in the pages of his latest offering Why? Mr. Kemp is a master story-teller in every sense of the word. Writers like Daniel Kemp only come along but once in a lifetime. This story was full of sexual tension and the fumblings of youth trying to find their way in the suburbs of modern England. This read was refreshing and mildly erotic; but not salacious in any way.

How do I express how this story made me feel? I think back when Laura and Terry met: His love for her; perhaps it was the life he could sense, something he knew was precious, but futile to believe she could experience. It was like he knew something without knowing exactly what, but what he felt was so intense, he was captivated. As for Laura’s love for him, that I believe was at first sight. I believe she always knew what she was going to do. I can’t say much without giving spoilers! I won’t do that.

You’ll want to read what unfolds in this story, rather than have someone tell you. So I won’t tell you!!!

Addressing the sex: Yes; some things are truly wicked, but they are not detailed to give a reader their experiences. Some things are erotic, but not written as a complete erotica type of experience. There’s just enough which is needed, no more, no less. Even though the story centers around characters who are totally OBSESSED with sex, this is NOT a story about sex.

This is a story about freedom and responsibility, and yes, love, and in the end, I won’t say! :-X
This is the first story I have read, where the ending made me realize the magnitude of the story I read. As I was reading the finale, I thought of all the characters and the things that went on, and that were said… I find it frustrating because I have so much to say about it. I keep pulling my fingers from the keys, so I won’t give anything away!!! LOLOLOL

Danny Kemp has a magnificent way of creating stories that stick with you. I very much enjoy his stories!!! This one’s gonna stay with me! I was fascinated and entertained!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars a damn good read with a twist, 22 Dec 2013

I had previously read this authors other work “The Desolate Garden” and enjoyed it immensely, The front cover is outstanding and is to the point. This book is a short story consisting of 77 pages that from the very first page makes you want to never put it down till the end. A gripping story of love and lust and passion, written in a style that I enjoyed and a rival to Jeffrey Archer’s short stories although slightly more racer than his are. The characters are believable and the story credible and I didn’t see the end twist to which I will say nothing about.

I would recommend this book to anyone, shame I didn’t get this review done before people could have bought this book as a Christmas stocking filler for anybody who enjoys reading books. This author has far to go and I cannot wait for his next best seller, watch this space Mr Kemp is going places.

About Danny Kemp

I was at work one sunny November day in 2006, stopped at a red traffic light when a van, driven incompetently, smashed into me. I was taken to St Thomas' Hospital and kept in for a while, but it was not only the physical injuries that I suffered from; it was also mental ones. I had lost confidence in myself let alone those around me. The experts said that I had post-traumatic stress disorder, which I thought only the military or emergency personnel suffered from. On good days, I attempted to go to work, sometimes I even made it through Blackwell Tunnel only to hear, or see, something that made me jump out of my skin and that's when the anxiety attacks would start. I told my wife that I was okay and going regularly, but I wasn't. I could not cope with life and thought about ending it. Somehow or other with the help of my wife and medical professionals, I managed to survive and ever so slowly rebuild my self-esteem. It took almost four years to fully recover, but it was during those dark depressive days that I began to write. My very first story, Look Both Ways, Then Look Behind, found a literary agent but not a publisher. He told me that I had a talent, raw, but nevertheless, it was there. His advice was to write another story and that I'm delighted to say, I did. The success of that debut novel, The Desolate Garden, was down to sheer hard work, luck, and of course, meeting a film producer.
