Description du produit

Présentation de l'éditeur

Emory James is, by his own admission, not the type of person the adjective exciting would ever deign to touch with a ten-foot pole. Cautious, reserved and staid, however, all crowd around him like best friends. Still, he gets by -- or at least he gets by up until his fiancée dumps him at the altar. Out of spite, he takes a solo honeymoon to Thailand, where he can pretend to be someone better than himself for a little while. In meeting Nate, a fellow traveler, Emory slowly discovers how to stop pretending.

Biographie de l'auteur

Cary Attwell lives in Seattle, Washington, where it rains and rains like the dickens, except when it doesn't. Fretting occurs on a daily basis, and small acts of idiocy are perpetrated with stunning proficiency much more often.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 And what a novel it was 21 janvier 2013
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

I'm the proud owner of some over 300 m/m romances and yes I know much of the genre is written for women by women because hey ... we find two hot men admitting to vulnerabilities and learning to be tender with each other ... just more than a little heartwarming. But often we lose much of good storytelling to mindless 50 shades of type writing. What I enjoy about much of the men who write in this genre is that we often see a solid story within the romance with fully developed primary and secondary characters. In short, they write much the same way they live (if they are gay). Their sexuality is simply a part of the larger picture. So too with The Other Man. A very well thought out story with developed characters. We really know and understand the characters and the world they live in and why they make the choices they do.

Now don't get me wrong, it's a romance but without much of the torrid and lurid love scenes YET you sometimes feel the love story more in this book that reading about two men getting it on and being lubed, stretched ... etc when really the act should be about the love and feelings and not always about animalism (which trust me has it's part and I'm a big fan). This story, however, is so well told that you get pulled and sucked in and rooting for the characters despite their flaws. Great read. But I did have to take off one star for lack of at least one romantic if not torrid love scene.

I actually laughed out loud quite a few times and I never do that. Out of hundreds of m/m romances I've read over the years, this one gets the second place in humor. Emory can be frustrating, self-deprecating and sometimes downright sad, but at the same time he is that geek in all of us. The guy who tries hard to be a normal, well adjusted person because no one had ever told him that it's irrelevant to being happy. Each time he fails, it becomes harder to try again. By the time he meets Nate, we can almost believe that Emory is ready to throw in the towel and accept what comes his way without any of his preconceived notions of normalcy. But that hardly makes a good novel. Instead, Emory does what any other human in his position is likely to do. He sticks his head in the sand. And if you can picture him like that, you will likely be tempted to give him a swift kick in the behind. Because through this entire story, Nate is THAT guy. You know which guy I'm talking about; the one you never find but keep hoping to. That guy we all know exists somewhere but we're never lucky enough to come across one. Don't get me wrong, he's not a perfect, hollow statue. He's as real as Emory despite the fact that we don't have an access into his head. He's funny, sweet, sexy and possesses infinite patience, which as it turns out, is quite necessary to get through to someone as stubbornly set in his ways as Emory. All in all, I throughly enjoyed this and I recommend it without a hesitation.
Warnings/spoilers
No sex scenes, piss your pants humor (seriously, wear diapers), a main character you just might wanna throttle, a sexy, SEXY photographer, and an ex girlfriend who should be permanently tied to the crazy train that took her out of the town in the first place

5.0 étoiles sur 5 just wonderful, this story 7 janvier 2013
Par bill m - Publié sur Amazon.com

every review here says it all - this is a wonderfully written story. Intelligent, funny, erudite - prose so good that it defies rating in the Amazon system. The m/m genre has become so popular and so filled with mediocre stuff that it's a caricature, a cliche - just another form of Harlequin romance, without the busty women but plenty of porn style men, and about as interesting as watching pectoral muscles flexing. Okay, so women are the buyers of the bulk of m/m stories, I get that, but do the publishers choose on the frequency of the cut-and-paste sex scenes, ignoring that there's no story there? If so, they probably wouldn't salivate at The Other Guy, a story of substance, with believable characters, wit and - as another reviewer put it - polished writing. Polished to a luster, this one is. If you're a gay man reading in this section, TOG should be one of your favorites, if not your go-to story - it's excellent. Whoever Cary Attwell is, he/she has shown talent and real author chops with this one. Please try this - you'll be really glad that you have.

So... This was a really good read that kept me thoroughly entertained but I felt as if something was missing. Make no mistake the beginning was great but For me personally, I wish the author had created actual dialogue and a complete scene of the events taking place (in the moment) of how the jerk burst into the chapel, what the jerk said to Michelle, what Michelle said to Emory as they're at the altar. That would have created that heart crushing blow for me and would have had me desperately needing a happy ending for Emory.

I just love stories where it feels like your own heart is being ripped out with every word and you're actually going through that heart ache in the moment with that character. Like what happened to Nate. Oh my heart felt that one.

And what was up with the ending? Will there be a book two because that seemed like a cliffhanger. -sighs-

Although no really intimate scenes, this was a wonderful romance novel and I would definitely recommend it.

All the other reviewers so far have said everything a reader needs to know--I just wanted to register my enjoyment of this book and encourage the author if he/she is reading these reviews to keep going. You've got what it takes!

This is the kind of book I troll Amazon for nearly daily to put on my Kindle. The plot is not completely unique, but what makes this book so satisfying to read is the beautifully polished writing, dialogue and characterization. Emory and Nate meet under less than auspicious circumstances, but their story (with slight fairytale overtones) still seems very real and is very affecting. This is a story for those of us who like romance and its conventions but don't like stories spoon-fed to us with too much explication and explanation. We've probably all fallen prey to the books whose author seems to have just attended a write-by-numbers and Make Your Writing Pop with Amazing Buzzwords seminars. Note to authors: Not every sexual encounter needs to have the word "amazing" thrown in like a post-coital cigarette.

Emory's initial internal dialogue, though very funny, seems a little precious--it's not that it wasn't fun to read--but then I had to reflect that Emory is an unreliable narrator of sorts--he's kind of clueless, and doesn't even know himself very well, as we find out. But that's a small quibble and it by no means affected my enjoyment of the book. I was in awe of the author's cleverness and skill--very well done and a true pleasure to read.

I really liked Emory and Nate, but as another reader mentioned it would have been nice to hear/see Nate's point of view--perhaps the author would consider writing it from that angle like Jay Bell did in Something Like Summer and then the other main character's pov more recently in Bell & Bell's Something Like Winter. Wishful thinking, but it's the mark of a really good story when the reader doesn't want to let the characters go and hopes for a sequel or--throw us a bone--a bit of a mention in the next book.
