What the community says about UnPrison
- "Did not hold my interest very well and not exactly my type of book. I think this is interesting as a romance novel but not what I would normally pick to read. I am not even sure if it is a great book for someone who is gay and would want to try reading it. It didn't hold my interest that well."
- "Rated it a 4, but really a 3.5. This was definitely a good read and it was also short enough to finish in one night. The characters were interesting. Yamilla did a good job of creating the prison world. She encompasses the layers of the social and political undertones of prison life, and forces the reader, and Ryan, to deal with all the grit that came with it. I especially love the speech Harrison gives to Ryan explaining the social order and continuous warnings about race mixing in the prison. At times I felt uncomfortable by the stark reality of it all, but I guess that was the point. There was a BDSM undertone that satisfied the kink in me. "Daddy", was just what I wanted to hear from the boy who settled into his role as a "kid" almost seamlessly. That could have been because of Harrison's shamless wooing, who knows. Overall Unprison is a good read. I think the issue for me was that I never got the climax in this story I was waiting for. Minor problems crept up around Harrison and Ryan but nothing truly threatening. In the end when I thought something was brewing it was wrapped up neatly in a pretty bow and readers were sent on their way with the happily ever after. The ending was very abrupt. I'm a reader that needs that build up and release to feel truly satisfied. This is where Unprison lacked, for me anyway. If you're a reader who likes a prison love story with minimal conflict then this is the novel for you. And even if you're not into that it's still an enjoyable read. I didn't hate it, didn't love it. It was a good way to pass a quiet night."
- "Looking for quick romance (and a happy ending)? I guess this is the book. This isn't going to win a literary prize. It's a book you read in an evening and enjoy, like a good movie. The characters are believable and, despite the setting, it doesn't feel abusive or degrading. "

in What are the best erotica by men"I read this book out of sheer curiosity, and boy was I surprised. It is the first, and likely last gay romance novel I will read, although it could be enjoyable at times. The hardest part of reading this novel was explaining myself to my wife when she found it on the bookshelf."

in What are the best erotica books"Compelling story about friendship, trust and love between an aging long-term prisoner and a young first time convict in the bleak setting of a medium security prison. Despite their differences in terms of age, experience and criminal background, the relationship they develop is very sweet as well as sensual."
