When twenty-three year old Sharon Tice
meets eligible bachelor and architectural designer Mark
Antonious Richfield, it’s both love and lust at first site.
Mark, at twenty-five, is appealingly attractive to both men
and women which confuses everyone he meets while adding to
age-old resentment he’s lived with for a number of years,
receiving criticism from family, friends, and acquaintances
for his charisma and sex appeal.
G. A. Hauser presents a lively
assortment of characters in A Question of Sex,
from Sharon’s younger sister Katie, to Sharon’s best friend
Candice, Sharon’s homophobic father, as well as Mark’s best
friend Jack, and Mark’s parents. Difficult choices for
anyone coming of age and falling in love are addressed in
this steamy and rocky relationship between Sharon and Mark.
I enjoyed A Question of Sex,
though the dialog at times would not have been my choice
(I’m not sure I’d ever call my Dad “Daddy” in a professional
working environment) and there were moments in the story
where I felt Sharon was immature (was I ever that young?).
Mark is full of angst and has his own issues dealing with
his sexual appeal, and the roommate Jack? Jack’s a criminal
lawyer, but by himself makes being a muscle eye-candy jock
seem criminal. There are plenty of fun, snappy, and sultry
moments as well as conflict, high tempers and higher
passions to make A Question of Sex an
enjoyable and delightful read.
