Unnatural is a gently-paced, character-driven story in which the relationship between the protagonists evolves slowly but satisfyingly. The sex scenes are romantic and sensual rather than raunchy, and the reader is clearly shown that these are two people who care deeply for each other. I enjoyed reading the book, although there are a couple of points where Iain’s guilt over his sexuality and his continual refrain of “I don’t want to ruin our friendship” gets annoyingly repetitive. The bulk of the conflict in the story comes as a result of Iain’s hang-ups and there isn’t much dramatic tension in it apart from that. But even with those caveats, I’d recommend Unnatural to anyone looking for a well-constructed and sweetly romantic m/m historical.
