Kurzbeschreibung

About to lose his apartment, and desperate to avoid having to move in with his horrendous relatives, shy art student Luke impulsively agrees to a deal from hell: sex with a man he doesn't know in exchange for a couch to sleep on.

His new "roommate" Cooper is everything that Luke hates: crude, uncouth, and covered in tattoos, not to mention openly gay. Luke has all but resigned himself to a miserable fate when it turns out Cooper might want something a little different than he expected.

Darum geht’s:

Luke ist ein unsicherer und verwirrter junger Mann, überängstlich und von den herrschüchtigen Tanten kurz gehalten. Er versucht, trotz aller Widerstände Künstler zu werden und muss sich mit Nebenjobs über Wasser halten. Als er seine Miete nicht zahlen kann und vor die Tür gesetzt wird, lässt er sich auf einen Deal ein, den ihm Cooper, der furchteinflößende Dauerkunde aus dem Blumenladen macht: Cooper lässt Luke für gewisse Gegenleistungen bei sich wohnen.

So fand ich’s:

Dass Luke sich vor dem über und über tätowierten Riesen Cooper fürchtet, kann ich nachvollziehen. Besonders, nachdem Cooper einmal betrunken im Blumenladen, in dem Luke arbeitet, auftauchte und ihm ins Gesicht sagt, dass er Luke für schwul hält. Cooper versucht auf plumpe Art, Luke anzumachen. Doch Lukes größte Angst ist es, tatsächlich schwul zu sein, nicht den Erwartungen seiner Familie zu entsprechen und zu “diesen widerlichen Leuten” zu gehören, wie seine Familie es formuliert. Seitdem fürchtet Luke sich vor Cooper und der Wahrheit, die er auf den Tisch gepackt hat.

Dass sich Luke tatsächlich auf Coopers Angebot einlässt, obwohl ihm schon speiübel wird, als sie nur darüber reden, kann ich nicht ganz nachvollziehen. Er kann es zwar gut erklären, warum es nicht in Frage kommt, wieder bei seinen Tanten einzuziehen. Und warum er bei einem weiteren Job neben Blumenladen und Studium dem Druck schon früher nicht standgehalten hat. Aber Sex gegen Unterkunft ist ja nun wirklich nichts, womit man Luke besser klarkommen sieht. Und das weiß er auch. Alternativen?

Mir hat die Geschichte gefallen, wie zwei Männer, jeder auf seine Art mit Problemen behaftet, es fertig bringen, sich gegenseitig zu helfen, zu vertrauen, und schliesslich zu heilen und zu lieben.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent read! 11. Juni 2014
Von Mina Lee - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com

I don't usually make a habit of writing reviews, although I read them a lot because, I'm lazy.
I also don't make a habit of reading something straight through and I haven't done that since high school while reading some political book.
So imagine my surprise that I couldn't put down this book for a long time!
It was very easy to relate to the "Asian" in the main character and I had a lot of experiences with pushy family members as well. It was a very well-written and well-thought out book about independence and responsibility. Excellent book, would recommend!

5.0 von 5 Sternen Two damaged men + Finding strength in each other = A sweet, sweet love story! 5. Juni 2014
Von PrismBookAlliance - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
4.5 of 5 stars~ Review by Leisa

For original review see Prism Book Alliance

My favorite part of reviewing books is when I find what I term, “a hidden gem.” Ink & Flowers is one of these gems! Asian American Luke is a struggling art student who was orphaned as a young child and now his college fund is in the hands of the two most vile and controlling aunts in the Western Hemisphere. They constantly put Luke down and wave his popular and successful first cousin in his face. He takes Cooper, a huge tattooed man who shows up at the florist shop where Luke works weekly to buy a bouquet of flowers, up on his offer to live with Cooper in exchange for sex.
On it’s face, this would be a great little story, but it’s the amazing characterizations of Cooper and Luke that makes this story so awesome. Luke has no self esteem to speak of (and who would with the awful family he has?!), and he’s in serious self denial about being gay. He feels crushing guilt every time he has any desire for other men, and denies he’s gay to Cooper. Cooper initially comes across as an opportunist, but soon reveals that he’s a tender, brokenhearted man who lives in self imposed hell from the guilt he feels because he feels responsible for the death of a young woman. Cooper is so sweet to Luke, and quickly tells a panicking Luke that he won’t force him to have sex. Their support for each other is remarkable. Cooper refuses to allow Luke’s hostile aunts to bully him, and Luke is there with the strength Cooper needs when crushing guilt caves his world in around him.
The chemistry between Cooper and Luke is unexpected and delicious. They truly bring out the best in each other, and bolster each other up when outside forces threaten their happiness. Their sexual relationship is innocent, hot, and just simply perfect. They find their happily ever after in each other, and know that their future is filled with hope and promise.
I highly recommend this delightful book. This lovely story is one that you should not miss!

I recommend this book for beginning gay authors!

This is how you do a short novel/novella correctly. This is going on my shelf next to 'Boy Meets Boy' and 'The Rest of Our Lives' as some literary goodness. As odd as it sounds, I found myself skipping the sexy scenes (which were done accurately and well, without spoiling anything) to get to the story.

Luke's family is one I relate due to dealing with a similar one myself. I was fuming at each and every point of Luke's family's dialog because it made my head spin at how horrible they were as people. Pendragon writes amazing characters, even if some are horrible people! Maybe I'll come back and say more about how much I needed this book, but regardless it gets a 5-star from me. It's earned it.
4.0 von 5 Sternen 4 stars = I REALLY liked this book 16. August 2014
Von A.S. Goodrich - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect from this book. Parts of the blurb seemed to indicate that the reader is in for a bit of hedonistic M/M reading, yet at the same time pushing you to expect more than what is on the surface – which is exactly what Luke must do when he moves in with Cooper: look beyond the surface and see the man within. I found Ink & Flowers to be a story about acceptance – accepting oneself and accepting those around you.

Luke is in a bad situation. Life has beat him down and kicked him while he’s down, just for good measure. His relatives are awful! Nothing like a collection of judgmental and controlling family members to rip your self-esteem to shreds. Seriously, who needs enemies when you have family like his? And in strolls his knight in shining armor … a tatted-up, openly gay, bad boy who offers Luke a place to sleep in exchange for sex. Luke is disgusted by the offer because he’s not gay – or at least he’s never allowed himself to contemplate it. As awful as the arrangement is, it’s not as bad as moving in with his aunts. When moving day arrives and Luke is faced with “paying rent” he cannot do it – not because he doesn’t want to, but because he’s not supposed to want to. Because Cooper is dealing with his own issues (and you’ll have to read the book to find out what they are), he decides not to collect rent that night. Rather, he goes for the stealth approach to make Luke want to be with him. While much goes on before they finally seal the deal, Luke’s first time is HOT and you cannot help but feel that everything they went through to finally get there was worth it.

Ink & Flowers is a great story that shows Luke learning to admit and embrace his sexuality, while standing up to his family when they attempt to force him into their mold. Cooper has to learn to live with and accept his part in a tragic situation. Fortunately, the two are able to help one another in this endeavor and begin to build a relationship. Although there is nothing that indicates that this is the beginning of a series, I do hope that the author decides to make it one as I would love to read more of Luke and Cooper’s story and see their relationship evolve further.

I received a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Interesting Coming Out Story 16. Juni 2014
Von Anne, Dirty Girls' Good Books - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Luke, a shy anxiety ridden college student, needs a place to live. He's practically broke and determined not to have to move in with his overbearing family. There's a guy that comes into the flower shop every week who scares the heck out of Luke, just due to his rough looks and many tattoos, and the fact that he hit on Luke once. His name is Cooper. Cooper makes Luke a hideous bargain - have sex with me and you can sleep on my couch. Luke has spent a lot of time telling himself he's not gay, but he agrees to the bargain anyway.

This is a fairly straight forward set up for a novella, and you certainly get the story promised, but there's a LOT packed into this novella! You've got a controlling and repressing family, severe depression, anxiety that's not really addressed, the question of paying for art school, Cooper's career and mysterious trauma, Cooper's habit of handling problems by running away, and erectile dysfunction! It's a bit too much for this short of a story.

It was refreshing to read about a couple who didn't have immortal hardons for each other, but I was disappointed that it seemed like their sex life depended on the ability to have an erection. I expected to see a discussion or practice of non-ejaculatory ways to be intimate. But, then again, I'm already complaining that there's too much packed into this book! It was also interesting to read about a character with anxiety and see how it affected his life. But, again, it was disappointing that no treatment was pursued. Luke's anxiety had a big impact on his life. So much so, that it's difficult to believe that it will go away just because he's come out.

This story is told solely from Luke's POV, but that worked for me. The mystery around Cooper's motivation and his transformation from jerk to sympathetic character was well done! Luke's character growth made me want to stand up and cheer! Despite having so much packed into it, I enjoyed the story and would read more by this author.
