Eric and Lamar Dance by Enrique Stein is a gay romance novel that explores a sub/dom race-play relationship from childhood to adulthood. Eric and Lamar Dance would appeal most to an audience of adults with an interest in gay sub/dom romance and race play. The story begins with a Caucasian family and their son, Eric, more or less adopting an African American child, Lamar, who is in a bad home situation. Eric and Lamar face many trials as they try to find the relationship that works best for the two while they explore a lop-sided friendship, open relationship, and a sub/dom relationship with race play.
Eric and Lamar Dance by Enrique Stein was an interesting read. The way the book explored not only a submissive/dominant relationship between two men, but also race play, was new to me. However, I found that I still enjoyed reading about Eric and Lamar. Enrique Stein did a spectacular job in developing both males as characters with how they each had their own unique personalities and struggles throughout the book. I really enjoyed reading as Eric and Lamar grew and changed throughout their lives. The ending was quite a surprise to me as it was not something that I had anticipated and yet I really liked the way that Enrique Stein decided to end the book. Overall, I would definitely be interested in any future books by Enrique Stein.
