Okay, published in 2007, I had missed this one. But it was not a great loss.

Aubrey is a great character and his mess and flaws are quite credible, I understand the dynamics between him and the family he works for. But the story with Kelly escapes me, mainly because I can't understand on what basis Kelly (a kid who can't accept NO for an answer from an unknown, alcoholic cuckold with anger issues) justifies his expectations, and because Aubrey feels terribly guilty rather than simply regretful. However, I could round up the "great character stupid plot" with 3 stars, but the fact that the two semi-decent sex scenes take place with two characters who are not Kelly doesn't make me feel guilty to give this book 2 stars.
