A very gracious account of my only attempt at sex. 😛
My Sunday Book Review is for Danny Kemp’s novella – Why?: A Complicared Love. Complicated love is an understatement in this fast paced and sometimes raunchy story of love and consequences.
Why? Is a story set in a web of despair, sex, unreachable emotion and love. One man’s crippling injuries, caused by an unprovoked, vicious attack, ruins the lives of everyone around him. This includes Terry Meadows, a nineteen-year-old boy who falls in love with the main character’s daughter Laura, twenty-seven years before the opening of the story.The twisted, interconnecting matrix in which Francis, Laura’s father, lives, destroys and distorts his daughter’s image of life beyond repair. It is a sad tragedy with an unexpected ending.
My 5 Star Review:
This novella is a story about sex, corruption, and despite the goings on in this criminal telling, love and a tragic love story.

Thanks for sharing Danny. And I’d say you did a great job at your only attempt at sex – portraying raunchy sex without explicit details is an art. 🙂
Again that’s a very kind thing to say. I wanted to try. It seems there’s nowhere to go when it’s not included. In the first book I wrote I had one scene where one protagonist touched the arm of the other. I thought that in the particular circumstances of their relationship, one movement of closeness conveyed everything I needed it to. But I don’t want to write cosiness all my life. I wanted to branch out and it’s so kind of you to treat my attempt like you did. I thought the short poems in the book might take away the edge of it being too far towards porn.
I think it was a great attempt. As you say, words, a look, a movement can imply a lot without speaking it directly. A nice attempt indeed for a writer who doesn’t typically write erotica, yet conveyed the story well. A sad tale for sure. 🙂
Congratulations, Danny, a great review.
Thank you so much, Robbie. And thank you once again, Debby.
