A wonderful and refreshing tale of coming of age and sexual discovery
I’m going to be honest, Indiscretion got me by surprise. The blurb didn’t give much away and the first few chapters weren’t indicators of the story that was to follow. I had Patrick and Cory married from a few pages in. Boy oh boy am I blind? So, the story itself I found a little on the ordinary side – HOWEVER, D. D. Lorenzo showed such a genteel bravado with her writing. She got the emotion, push and pull and tension down to a tee.
As a character Patrick was so well developed that his stiff personality became more and more pliable as the story went along. I’m not going to lie, the book towards the end felt a little rushed and in all honesty it feels unfinished. Patrick’s story feels unresolved – I know that you go on to learn more about him in Aleatha’s own Infidelity series, but even for that sexual awakening phase of his life it doesn’t feel closed. Personally, I didn’t enjoy that aspect as such because it almost rendered the build up of the story pointless. I know that D. D. Lorenzo was telling a coming of age and sexual discovery story of a young man that knows he’s gay but is hiding behind the social status quo. I get it. I really do, I just wish that there was something more. In no way is Lorenzo’s writing to blame, on the contrary her writing is tasteful and full of gusto. She got the nail right on the head with how far to take the explicitness of the content – which again stopped it from becoming trashy and just another adult book. The message she portrays is blunt, and she does it with honour and class.
All in all, it was an enjoyable read and if I hadn’t read Aleatha’s series it would certainly make me want to read it ASAP. Indiscretion definitely goes to prove that adult books can convey a powerful and worthwhile message. Would I read it again? Absolutely. I enjoyed every single twist and turn this book took.
Indiscretion is OUT NOW!
About the Book
Love is dispensable; companionship is critical.
Some words of wisdom that my father imparted to me. I never gave much thought to either. My only desire was to be my father’s well-bred heir. A true Southern gentleman who took what he wanted and paved the road to success with the spoils.
Hiding behind the curtain of gentility, I perfected my role.
Until desire tore it in two and I was left with the tattered remains.

Enter Infidelity’s world of entrapment, betrayal, and deceit, where you decide whose relationship is real and whose is just an agreement.
About the Authors
DD Lorenzo aspires every day to be a better writer than she was the day before. From childhood she has been more an empath than she liked. Sensing the emotional connections between family and friends, she wrote her first story when she was six years old. The gift continued into adulthood and with the encouragement of a few New York Times Bestselling Authors, she took a leap of faith and published. In her spare time she loves sinking her toes in the sand on the eastern shores of Maryland and Delaware. She lived a love story with her late husband, Mike, and now considers him her guardian angel. When she isn’t writing she enjoys the company of her eclectic family, friends, and her adventurous King Charles Cavalier puppy, Sawyer. The only things she doesn’t like are judgmental people and okra. You can find DD on Instagram, Twitter, Pinterest, and Goodreads.
