Hoofed - Ian M. Pindar I received a free paperback copy of Hoofed by Ian M. Pindar in a goodreads giveaway. I gave it four stars. It was a tough read for me, not because of the book, but I am not the appropriate market group for it.

It's a story of star crossed lovers who take a time out from each other while he, Rob & his friend Spud, travel across much of the world in a grand adventure. They leave behind Tazmin, Rob's lover. She must continue with her career.

It is a tale of sex, drugs & rock & roll. The young men do a LOT of drugs, indulge in a lot of sex & enjoy music through the entire trip. One of the scenes Rob sat on a rock with his legs dangling in the water. When he lifted his legs he discovered a leech gorging itself on his blood. It reminded me of the scene from the movie Stand By Me where the young man Gordie LaChance, played by Wil Wheaton, fainted.

I actually laughed out loud at some of their antics & conversation. There were times the amount of sex seemed overdone, but again, I'm not the age bracket this is directed toward.

Can Rob & Tazmin survive this separation? Can they return as a couple?
