Blog Tour: He & She by Wayne Clark @TheSeriousReadr and @Wayne_Clark_1


*** 5-star Silver Medal winner in the 2014 Readers' Favorite Annual International Award Contest ***

Growing numb to life, to his on-and-off girlfriend of many years, his career, even Scotch, a man turns fifty. He is a translator who can no longer dream of translating beautiful works of fiction. He is an amateur musician who can no longer dream of expressing his life on a higher plane, without words. As he glares inside himself he sees little but his declining sexuality, his crumbling hold on life, a growing list of failed relationships, and a darkening well of loneliness.

Stumbling upon an image on the Internet one night, he suddenly hears cell doors sliding open. He stares at a young woman, in profile, beautiful, unblinking, regal. Instinctively he knows that by lingering on that image he will shatter a relationship that has kept him on the sane side of loneliness as surely as if he stepped in front of a speeding eighteen-wheeler. But desperate to feel alive again before time runs out, he knows he must see the stranger behind the pixels on his laptop screen.

Although it is her image that first transfixes him, his eye afterwards chances on a handful of words on the Internet page. She is a dominatrix. The word triggers something inside him, blows the dust off fantasies trickling back to adolescence, and slowly begins to re-choreograph his decades of sexual memories. Was he ever really the dominant male he thought he was? Did he have a sexual alter-ego? Was this the last card he had to play in life? The face on the screen held the answer. He would find out even if it killed him.

Review by Ally Obsessive One Clicker

** ARC provided by Obsessed by Books for an honest review **

He & She by Wayne Clark was very interesting to read. This was the first time read for me by this author. The story is told in flashbacks and how there is a lot of range of emotions going on in the book. In he & She we get to follow the life of Kit Cayman from being in love to having dreams. He goes from disappoints of failure until he meets a woman online. She is an Egyptian Princess who happens to be a dominatrix. After meeting the princess things start to change for Kit and takes a better turn for him.

This was a good read if you like the BDSM type of books then this book is also for you to try to read.

Review by Wendy Book Obsessed Pimpette

* * ARC given on behalf of obsessed by books for an honest review * * 
This book was something different, it's about a man who is having bad luck at life trying to decide what it is he wants, then he discovers BDSM and finds out he really enjoys it, I mean who wouldnt, but when he starts wanting more from Kelly it gets to be to much, cause that's something she can't do, so Kits life starts going downhill he starts, drinking, getting depressed it's just a losing battle I really felt sorry for him, although it was hard to read, the writing wasn't terrible.

Review by  Jeanne Obsessive Pimpette

I was given a copy of this book through Obsessed by Books for an honest review.
From the beginning, I had a hard time concentrating on this book. It had a lot of extra material that, in my opinion, wasn't necessary, and made it hard for me to stick with it. I didn't like the way the prologue revealed the end of the book. It was sad and depressing, and made me dread reading it. Even though I didn't care for it, I can't take away the fact that Wayne Clark is a
talented author. Just because I didn't care for it, don't let my opinion dissuade you from reading it. Please read the four and five star reviews before making a decision whether to read it or not.

The Author

Wayne's  Website / Goodreads / Twitter / Facebook

Award-winning author Wayne Clark was born in 1946 in Ottawa, Ont., but has called Montreal home since 1968. Woven through that time frame in no particular order have been interludes in Halifax, Toronto, Vancouver, Germany, Holland and Mexico.

By far the biggest slice in a pie chart of his career would be labelled journalism, including newspapers and magazines, as a reporter, editor and freelance writer. The other, smaller slices of the pie would also represent words in one form or another, in advertising as a copywriter and as  a freelance translator. However, unquantifiable in a pie chart would be the slivers and shreds of time stolen over the years to write fiction.
