Dan Skinner: The Price of Dick



It She s a devout Catholic and for her being gay is a terrible sin She is also a psychological terrorist and that was what her son learned best trough herJJ is a photographer and aspires to be a writer He also wants Dick He craves for that beautiful man What he doesn t know is how much manipulated he will be by Dick s evil mind He has dreams to chase but he is also so naive that he will find himself on a terrible situationThis is a very powerful and disturbing story I will never forget it How a man lets himself be completely dominated and manipulated by another person is very scary I am glad that JJ found true love and I think that he learned a very valuable lessonThis was a fabulous BR Brilliant and unusual it is a documentation of how ou can screw How McGruff and the Crying Indian Changed America your life up whenou think with Wicked City (Wicked City, your dick instead ofour head Could I afford the price of Dick this is the dilemma that JJ has to deal with in this book Because Dick is a dick but Dick is also JJ s muse Ambitious executive Sexy and intoxicating PhotographerSecretsEmotional roller coaster And new beginnings for JJ or someone else who manages to grow his confidence and believe in himself while going through the obstacles to achieve this by choosing to share his life with his beautiful monster The lotus flower blooms most beautifully from the deepest and thickest mud Buddist proverb As JJ warns us himself not to repeat his mistakes I can t help but wonder would JJ become the person he is in the end of the book without having had Dick in his life Fascinating read Loved It really should be in a movie adaptation Recommended Amazing BR here 35 stars Review completed June 6 2014 I need to explain my rating Please scroll down If The Celestial Selenite Scry (The Moon God Trilogy, you are inherently a good guy which I think I amou instinctively want to help people even before ou know what their problem may be Which as I examine that notion makes good guys sound gullible Con artists look for good guys because of that built in gullibility If they re con artists that come in a sexually alluring package a good guy can become a brainless idiot Allow me to introduce myself That s the crux of the matter the good guy JJ served as a doormat and acted like a brainless idiot for many ears and it s something I ve had a very hard time to swallow That and the Hollywoodesue ending are the reasons why I downgraded my rating to 3 starsWhat made the difference between Memorizing You and The Price of Dick Both books provide excellent writing and compelling storytelling skills Plus I loved the MCs of Memorizing You and all that made for an absolutely outstanding and memorable reading experience With The Price of Dick however I didn t get THAT whole package Yes I did love the impeccable writing incl the very entertaining narrative and some of JJ s deadpan lines were hilarious Unfortunately there s a but I not only hated and despised Dick and the bigoted and homophobic Mommy Fitch for that matter I also ended up disliking JJ I just couldn t believe it Somewhere along the way I somehow lost my respect for him Which leads me to my conclusion that my rating simply reflects the whole picture how I felt about The Price of Dick in general Dan can write one hell of a story and I truly adore his writing skills but fact is I can t give a book a straight four or five star rating when I dislike the good guy too I expected to hate Dick but not liking JJ came out of left field and bothered me greatlyFavorite uoteDo Americas sewing book you fancy a description of Dick s characterManipulative bastardFilthy swineDespicable assholeNarcissistic showoffVomit inducing liarPathetic pretenderAbhorrent impostor In short Dick is a horrible dick We could have formed a club Dick s Anonymous JJ was making endless concessions and he could practically sense the doom but why oh why did he not put an end to his ordeal sooner Is he a sucker for punishment I get it he s an inherently good guy and very kind and helpful with a clear conscience but come on Dick The Dick exploited him SHAMELESSLY AD NAUSEAM and used him as his own personal doormat It s the kind of exploitation that goes beyond money Dick worked JJ into the ground emotionally and materially JJ went back into the closet for Dick at his convenience all the time for Pete s sake Also JJ played along in a ridiculous charade catering to Dick s every need and ended up in a downward spiral that was beyond pathetic I think JJ s gullibility and na vet can t Be Outdone Frankly I couldn t believe my eyes and wanted toell at him to wake up already but it was fruitless He let himself be treated like a piece of sit Looking for shelter in a bottle isn t the solution either that s for certain This grade A manipulation went on for Secret Santa (Bluegrass Brothers, yearsYEARS JJ was so extremely focused on Dick and oh so eager to please him in any way possible that he didn t realize how that asshole sucked the happiness out of him For me as a reader that highly humiliating and manipulating treatment was so hard to absorb I couldn t understand it What hurt the most was the fact that JJ pushed forty without having been in love for ages After he realized that they would never be a loving couple he simply pined after Dick s friendship forears although without success Well that came as no real surprise I was disappointed in JJ because he spent so many The Workshop years being miserable without making any efforts to really change the status uo This may sound a bit harsh but to be honest I came to that specific point where I had a hard time to feel any sympathy for him Where was his friggin self respect his backbone If I had been in JJ s shoes I would have called it uits after that nasty vacation incident But no let s go our merry way to get dissed over and over and over and over again It must be a great feeling Sorry that s me being sarcastic Finally I must say the Hollywoodesue ending felt exaggerated and fairytale like It was the euivalent of a very huge gift wrapped up with a glitter sprinkled bow and some starry eyed content Oh wellOn a positive note I really do appreciate the fact that we can t put Dan in a specific box It s very important that authors write distinct characters and different stories because that s exactly what will keep me reading I want variety and Dan delivers It is very unfortunate however that The Price of Dick didn t uite hit the mark this time around Regardless it s a good read and ifour frustrating tolerance is higher than mine then chances are The Legacy of Aaron Geist you ll end up loving D a surefire method to drive home a hard deal No one can resist him And he's got one really big secret But that will costou For photographer JJ Johnstone the price of Dick just might cost him everything.

E to go home with him To be the chosen one among all the men and women who follow Dick around the gym like he s some sort of grifter Pied Piper If Prisoner of Night (Black Dagger Brotherhood, you are unfamiliar with the original folklore surrounding the Pied Piper he was a beautifully outfitted man who played his flute to lead children out of their village to never return He was later rud to be a rat catcher who when the villagers refused to pay him turned his magic flute on the children and used their disappearance as revenge against their parentsThis is of course legend folklore fiction The Price of Dick is also a work of fiction There are portions of the book that are loosely based on the author s own experiences But for the most part it is fiction Imagine ifou will a Dick that is even evil than the one artfully presented by Mr Skinner Make Insectissimo! your skin crawl It should Pennywise the clown would be a less dangerous bed mate Dan s skill comes into play in that the truth and fiction are seamlessly woven together There is no way for the reader to tell the differenceDan Skinner is a photographer He works with visual stimuli So when he writes his brain is able to transform his words into a picture for the reader I have no idea how he does it without pages and pages of boring this looked like that that smelled like this the air was blah blah blah But he does His uniue voice and cadence create word pictures and leave the reader breathless By the third time reading through this manuscript it should have been boring Instead I kept finding layers of beauty and pain that I hadn t noticed before Almost from the beginning of The Price of Dick the reader has a bad feeling about Dick But we have faith in JJ Then somewhere along the story line that bad feeling and faith turn into terror Not the Pennywise kind of terror but the terror one feels when they are seeing someone they have come to care about heading for certain disaster and can do not one little thing to prevent it I ve read every review I could of this book To a one they all wanted to reach into the pages of the book and shake some sense into JJ and choke the life out of Dick Butou have to just turn those pages as uickly as Fields of Fire (Frontlines, you can as the train comes blazing down the track You don t dare look away while waiting for the inevitableThere is sex Anyone familiar with Dan s photography work and ifou aren t why not knows that there is sex The chemistry he creates in his photos is organic It can t be faked The sex is hot and well written Again Dan s giftedness comes into play He writes some really raunchy stuff But it doesn t feel dirty or lascivious when Redeemed (The MacKays you read it or leaveou feeling trashy afterward It is just enough Alex We all need an Alex He is motivational in every sense of the word Picturing his ass in those ellow shorts almost made me want to take up running The stories he shares from his family made me melt To avoid spoilers I won t share any about him other than to say I hope that I and every one reading this either has an Alex in their life or meets him somedayIn The Price of Dick Dan Skinner has created a most memorable character The title is fitting whether Dick is taken as a formal name or as a slang name for a particular part of male anatomy It works wither way Or both While this book may scare ou it isn t the horror movie kind of scare it s like The Wedding (Lux, you are worried about someone becauseou know he s headed for the shit The title may alarm American Blues you makeou think the book is porny While there is gay sex in this book it is not gratuitous It is used in limited uantities to advance the plot and character development The Dick in the title really is the name of one of the completely unforgettable MCs Which direction our mind chooses to interpret it is our own thingNone of that should stop Mary Engelbreit (Leisure Arts you from reading The Price of Dick Dan Skinner has taken a wolf in sheep s clothing to an entirely new level It s alarming how well camouflaged a true sociopath is able to be There may be one sitting next toou right now Dan what did I just read One of these days we need to have a uiet talk I really want to hurt Dick At the very least I hope he gets a lifetime of constant jock itch It makes me angry and hurt and then angry again If that s what Die Journalistin you were going forou succeeded I hope every SOB that comes anywhere near as close to being like Dick contracts the same lifetime jock itch and is handled the way that Karma should handle people like that Very unusual book I ll probably add another star when I can get over how much I hate Dick MAY 29TH REVISION OF REVIEWI still hate Dick but after I heard a few things I needed to hear I knew I couldn t hold back that one star just because Dan made me hate Dick so much I really hate that Dan makes me say that sentence over and over LOLI know that people have a hard time getting through this book solely because they really really HATE DickYou know when there is a character in a book and just having to read their name psses Dragon Slayers Academy Set II you off Dick does that to me But that is really brilliant because Dan made me hate a sort of fictional character enough that I had left a well earned star off of the review JUST OVERNIGHT BECAUSE OF FRIGGING DICKSo read the book Dan did a really great job on making everybody HATE DICK Come on Get on the I HATE DICK bandwagon with the rest of is We need tshirts made Hugs Dan When I read this title for the first time I wanted to read this book ASAP The title itself left me intrigued Being written by Dan Skinner it could only be a great book I thought I was not mistaken it is indeed a fabulous book but not for the reasons that I thought it would beLet me tellou first that I was born raised and educated as a Catholic However since I think for myself I do believe on the existence of a superior force above us all but I don t believe on religions no matter what they may be IMO religions are the cause of the most atrocious events in human kind history Wars murderers radicalism prejudice and all forms of intolerance are sometimes caused by religionsSo reading this book and being or not an autobiographical story or even if there is or not some real events referenced in it only accentuates my conviction that religions are sometimes a real bad thingDick is a sick man Crazy sociopath selfish narcissist but a very beautiful and attractive man His mind is dominated by prejudice against homosexuality He is gay but he knows that he can t be gay His mother would never allowed. Of an orgasm every six feet two muscular sexually intoxicating inch of him He's an ambitious freshman in a prominent brokerage firm who's figured out he can use than his smarts to get ahead He's perfecte.

Absolutely BRILLIANT 35 StarsAsshole characters exert a strange fascination on me They are a weakness and a guilty pleasure But they only appeal to me when there is lots of grovelling involved until they finally redeem their selves The Price of Dick didn t turn out the way I wished It s not that kind of Romance There was no grovelling let alone redemption Needless to say I was left disappointed I m blaming this on me though for having the pretension to assume that this story would be like many othersJJ was a doormat and he knew it He was a doormat infatuated with Dick and that is where my disappointment with JJ solely stands Don t take me wrong JJ wasn t manipulative and bad as Dick but he had an agenda too He could have kicked Dick out of his life at any time but no He liked sharing the bills he liked having Dick around he liked Dick s charismatic act to recruit new guys and finally he saw chance in Dick to up his gameAnd Dick Well Dick was a DICK with all capital letters a scoundrel He did unforgivable things Dick needed a place where he could stop the macho pretence a place where he could let the barriers down and be gay JJ was his golden ticket Such a sweetheart It was a hard story to swallow In my view the fucked up situation was a mutual arrangement where both would benefit And even though I was aware that the exploration was consensual by both parties I could not take it easily because this deal was not well balanced JJ was always the weakest link He couldn t see it though bloke was blind like a bat It took too long for JJ to wake up and realize that he didn t need that that he could do much betterI think I had a reverse reaction here Instead of being mad at Dick I was mad at JJ for taking all that crap from Dick One of the things that nagged me the most was listen to Dick make a pass at other guys with his bullshit I am not gay speech in every fucking photo shootGawd give me strength I am glad JJ found someone to give him a push I don t think he would have pulled his shit together on his own Alex grounded JJ Alex was the one who came up with the idea to transferback up the photos Alex pushed him to find a new place Alex opened JJ eyes about his financial situation and finally he was the one who thought about calling an attorney to fix that big mess Summing it up the grand finale was all down do AlexThis book drove me mad We really deserved that HEAI am not sure my kindle would survive otherwise Another Monday BR with my amazing friends D Review When I first saw the cover and the title of the book I thought it will be a humorous book I was SO WRONG In a nutshell the book is all about this uote it is a documentation of how Arkadaşım Muzo (Genconun Yalan Dünyası you can screwour life up when The Art of War in World History you think withour dick instead of Lutheran Bible Companion, Volume 2 your head There is a guy that is like a God Dick extremely beautiful and sexy as hell But he lives a life of lies And JJ is so credulous he is so absorbed with Dick manipulative talk made me want to slap is face and say wake up This author as a way of expressing that blows my feelings I loved this book will never forget Dick

know that he s been screwed over by a dick because he was thinking with his I will take the liberty in speaking for every male by saying that sometimes the penis seems to make a really great argument and that might lead to uestionable actions It s possible I ve been a victim of this from time to time so I can relate to JJ Let s face it the penis wants what the penis wants and sometimes it s like a magnet with a force that cannot be stopped In this cas An epic story5 The Price of DickGreat self reflections Awesome syntaxI love the world of thought A well full of vocabularyThere are so many awesome sentences that I want to highlightI loved the voyeuristic and exhibitionistic scenes very steamyIt was entertaining as hell funny witty ups and downI think it s a Dan thing but at 30% i thought i read a whole book What can happen No there is much amaaaazingLots and lots of analizing It was getting and crazy Dick was a dick pur sang Unbelievable manipulator psycho but also endearing
