"Tale of Bryant" is a set of four short novellas following a year in the life and love of struggling college film student Isamu and wealthy executive Brian. Their love story begins in NYC's lovely Bryant Park and this setting has a role in each of the stories.
The romance between Isamu and Brian is deeply sensual and very erotic, and since Isamu's camera goes everywhere with him, much of their lovemaking is filmed:
I was all kinds of into having our love and passion captured on film. We'd made hundred of shorts over our months as a couple. Most were edited into one long rambling flick of sex, passion, and love that - to the trained eye - had changed since spring. There was more depth of feeling in our expressions now when we were making love. I guess that's what changed. It had grown from slaking a need to making love.The passion between Isamu and Brian really drives the plot, but at times Brian acts like a bit of a jerk, and since we really don't get an insight into his background until the fourth story, it's hard to really get a sense of what drives his personality. Also Isamu is way too stubborn about not accepting help at times; however, the author does a beautiful job of showing this couple go through good times as well as bad and taking those difficult steps to make their relationship work.
The flow of the story feels just right and the ending beautifully caps off this sweet and sensual romance. 4 stars for "Tales of Bryant."
