At its most basic, Sculpting Clay is about moving on when a long-time partner ends a relationship with another and starting over. There a few plot twists and unexpected turns, but they are the kind of twists and turns that add flavor to the story.
I found Taran to have a worldly innocence, Clay to have a steady, Average Joe type of personality that blossoms after Taran comes into his life and Javier a bit of a wild card with depth. All of those personalities brought together prove to be a great combination.
A different kind of fairytale that provides a wonderful escape.
When Taran Lorenz enters Clay Stevens's life, Clay is still reeling after his long-time partner, Javier, abruptly ended their relationship. Taran gives Clay the motivation to start living again, but Clay’s insanely jealous ex threatens to nip their relationship in the bud... only Taran won't give up, even when Javier gets their mutual employer, the manipulative billionaire Vincent Torres, to mark Taran for “removal.”
It's the start of a fight on three fronts: Javier confessing his continued love for Clay while he tries to run Taran off, Taran fighting to be loved and accepted for who he is—not what he is—after magically returning from the dead, and Clay trying to figure out how he got stuck in this fairy tale of monumental proportions and where he can find the happily-ever-after ending.
