I really disliked Cabell, the MC. He stayed in a relationship he wasn't happy in to further his career, cheated on his lover then sat on his hands and watched as that lover sank into depression and eventually, a breakdown. He then blew off the man he cheated on his lover with because he couldn't help him further his career. He was a general asshole and, at times, truly loathsome.Not that any of the other characters were much better.This was weirdly structured as well. This kind of flashback scenario can work well, but I think it needs a stronger writer to pull it off.Also, porn. So much of it and so unnecessary. I read it to the end because I wanted to see if I was right about the reviewer but at any other time, I would have DNF-ed this at around 20%.
