Jamesí love for Dahlia is true and
complete. He understands her doubts and waits for her to see
he is not going to leave her. Dahlia is afraid of being hurt,
but she reflects her true feelings in their lovemaking.
The Loverís Diary is a
journal of James and Dahlia intimate events. Dahlia Rose
catalogs the sexual proceedings of two people without a
background story. I felt this was more an invasion of
privacy; I have a preference for stories with a plot or a
theme to hold my attention.
