The Janitor

Right man someone who will look past his macho sport and put him in the place of a submissive He wants to fall in love and belong to his partnerOn the surface Noel Atherton an intellectual shy and sexually repressed university graduate student with a crippled leg could not be the dominant lover that Dane longs for But after their first meeting when Dane disables the. What a great read I really did love this book for a number of reasons Dane Connelly is without doubt one of the sweetest most innocent characters I ve encountered in a long time and Noel Atherton was interesting and the perfect man for him They needed each other and they found each other which was lovely The supporting characters were terrific too Mr Trent Gilbert Charlie and the various boxers at the gym On the other hand Noel s father was heinous as were those he manipulated to hurt his son s relationship and hurt Dane himselfI know some people had a problem with Daddy being used in the bedroom but here s the deal it was a fantasy and it was also an outlet for two people desperately needing to express themselves for two reasons 1 Noel was crippled in one leg after a car accident that also killed his mother so he felt less than a man his father made sure he perpetuated that belief 2 Dane needed someone to rely on to take pressure off him he needed love and kindness not the rough meaningless brutal sex that people felt he was going to inject into their encounters because he was big raw and muscular Being able to use Daddy in the bedroom allowed both of these men to free themselves of the outside stereotypes that people automatically placed on them It allowed Noel to feel strong and Dane to feel comforted Noel was the dominant Dane the submissive and people would never have guessed it based on outward appearances Psychologically speaking it was absolutely spot how Jan Irving incorporated this into the story It was also interesting that the world of academia were not so supportive of a gay relationship yet the boxers were albeit cheekily at times I also loved Dane s gentle treatment and love of his pets friends and his optimistic outlook on life even after life threw him some pretty rough punches I also enjoyed Noel s progression from a shy scarred a sexual man to a loving free spirited partner He struggled with Dane boxing which was understandable but he needed to support Dane s passion and what made him feel good about himself what gave him his identity I loved how it was Noel who got Dane through the critical boxing match when the others who supported him often in his boxing pursuits were ready for Dane to throw in the towel This book delivers a one two knockout to stereotypes and is definitely a keeper I have just re read it again and enjoyed it just as much Oh yes the seuel The Boxer is fabulous too Jan Irving is now on my must read list

Fire alarm in the library and lights a cigarette Noel is drawn from his shell Soon Noel needs to touch Dane exploring his sexuality for the first time And both learn that looks can be deceivingHowever Noel's controlling father is appalled by the relationship and uietly arranges to get Dane out of the way and punish him for daring to love a man so far above his station. All Dane Connelly wants is to be a great boxer and find the love of his life It seems he finally got an answer to one of his prayers the day he met Noel Atherton at the University library where Dane works as a janitor The attraction was instantaneous and beneficial for the two because Dane brings out the protective side of Noel while Noel answer s Dane s unspoken need of being valued Problem is Noel s father doesn t approve of their relationship and will stop at nothing to keep them apartI think the strongest aspect of the story is with Dane s characterization Described as having a body like Superman and eyes like Bambi I couldn t help but fall in love with is child like optimism and positive outlook in life He is good natured almost to the point of being naive so it s heartbreaking to read when he gets taken advantage of by other people Good thing Noel s there to make sure he s well taken care ofIf only the kinks and sex toys were taken out of the story line this book could ve earned another star from me Good thing Dane s adorable best friend Goldie almost made up for that little pet peeve Almost

review ✓ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Ó Jan Irving

I’m a naturally optimistic type of person you know Yeah I think good things will happen only they usually don’t Take Noel even though he’s educated and rich and he don’t think he’s even gay I want to belong to him I want him to take me completely Dane ConnellyDane Connelly is a gay janitor and boxer with a soft heart and a simple outlook he wants to meet the. When I first began reading this I found Dane s voice to be so endearing that my hopes were rather high that this would be a great read but it just kept disappointing meDane s looking for the right man who will look past his brawn and take care of him He wants love and a real relationship not just a series of anonymous romps in back alleys He thinks he s found his perfect man in Noel People often take advantage of Dane because they see a big guy who s a little slow and they figure that that s all there is to him But Dane is a very sweet character the kind you cheer on and hope gets his happy ending He reminds me of a cross between Rocky Balboa Rocky and Ray Kowalski Due South He s got Rocky s simplicity and heart and Ray s speech patterns and energyDespite how endearing I found him Dane s characterization is inconsistent His parts of the story are told from his first person viewpoint We get a rich narrative of events from him but his speech and the words he uses are sometimes at odds For example he uses a lot of slang contractions and eye dialect yet he uses the proper form of you are It lends a slight foreignness to his speech that I found distracting There were also times when Dane seemed much too child like for my own reading comfort There were a few key scenes where it was actually rather off putting especially given his sexual relationship with NoelNoel is a physically challenged sexually repressed rich boy academic living under his father s thumb He and Dane enjoy talks on a number of subjects and I think Noel is drawn to Dane through his charming yet artless chatter Through the course of the book Noel has a lot to deal with his dominating father his growing relationship with Dane his physical limitations but we don t get as much insight into his actions and motivations as we do with Dane Where Dane s narrative is open Noel s is ambiguous This did further the plot of the story but it still left me feeling that the narrative as a whole was unevenWith Noel s reticent personality I was expecting a slow healthy build up to a sexual relationship with Dane Noel needed time in my opinion to gain confidence in himself and get over many of the issues that were holding him back What I got was a too sudden sex scene in a college reading library It seemed too soon in the story for Noel to be ordering Dane to get naked and lie back on a desk His sudden confidence went against everything I knew about the character at that point in the story Just a few pages earlier Noel had admitted that he hadn t even allowed himself to think in a sexual way in years It didn t ring true of his personality or his past that he would suddenly go from being a shy reserved and somewhat submissive man to a confidant sexual man who enjoys dominating his partnerThroughout the story there are the usual little ups and downs and small misunderstandings between Dane and Noel While a few of them were realistic given their personalities the rest didn t really work for me I didn t like that when Noel suddenly stops coming around Dane believes that Noel only wants him for sex because no one else has ever wanted him for anything else Dane seems too accepting and matter of fact about his past and too loyal to Noel to assume this after one missed visit I could be wrong but I thought Dane would be the type of person to go to Noel and ask him what was going on rather than assuming the worst with little evidenceThe subplot of Noel s father was interesting in that I found his father to be a devious nasty old bastard I enjoyed wondering what awful thing he would attempt next in order to get his son away from Dane He was a completely over the top character and I admit I liked that about him I suppose if the rest of the story had been better written I would have seen him as uite ridiculous but since it wasn t I just decided to take him as we was with few expectationsI thought that Dane being artistic was a lovely touch given his rough job as a boxer but I didn t feel he was educated enough nor mentally capable enough to get into the prestigious art college he was in toward the end of the story I was left with the feeling that he was only there because of the strings Noel and his money must have pulled for him I also got the impression that he was going along with the college idea because it was what Noel wanted Art seemed to be something Dane loved but not something he needed an art degree in in order to be happy doing I certainly understand what might have motivated the author to do this I did want Dane to be happy in a safer line of work doing what he loved doing but I felt it was a disservice to the character for it to be done in the way it wasAs a side note the whole call me Daddy thing really suicked me especially when I take into account Noel s issues with his father and Dane s in my opinion uestionable mental ageThere were positive aspects to the book but I just couldn t get past the many disappointments it had for me in order to enjoy them My Rating 2 of 5 Starshttpiheartpaperbackscom
