I love to read. I am very eclectic in my reading but I especially enjoy erotica and erotic romance. I also like movies, live theater and concerts, hockey, and counted cross-stitch.

THE UNMENTIONABLES by Megan McFerren and Val Prozorova

The Unmentionables - Megan McFerren, Val Prozorova

Wow!  What an emotional roller coaster.  Set in the 1950's during the era of McCarthyism, James and Henry, fall in love.  Both are married but live for the times they can be together.  Henry is under suspicion by the government because he is an immigrant.  James works for the FBI but when they decide they must interview all their employees, the stress becomes too much for James and he has a breakdown and ends up in a psych hospital.  When Henry finds out, he does what he must to get James out before permanent damage is done.  As James heals, things come to a head with their wives and the men are left with only each other. 


This was one fantastic story.  Tightly written, the tension of that time comes through as you did not know who to trust.  I was on the edge of my seat caught up in the story.  I loved Henry and James.  They are opposites of each other but devoted to one another.  Their futures were different than what they ever anticipated but they were pioneers at that time.  Courageous, strong, devoted men.  I wanted everything to turn out well.  I would also like to see more into their futures to see how their story ends.  Well done!
