While I usually am head over heels with Voinov’s books, GOLD DIGGER didn’t hit me as hard this time. I enjoyed the story and how Nikolai slowly came into himself, yet I don’t think this book quite had the chemistry I was looking for. The sex is explicit and intense, but I felt as if everything was happening a little too fast. This is a shorter book so I think that played into the pacing issue, but I wished that the author explored more of the emotions behind what Nikolai felt. I would have loved to see him war with his emotions about his actions a bit more. For someone who is going to be with a guy for the first time, he simply jumped in a little too quickly without really testing the waters. Nevertheless, I did enjoy Nikolai and Henry together. Voinov simply writes some of the best M/M erotica out there. I’ll be looking forward to reading more of his work.
