The deuteragonist in my story,Booker, has a confused perception of love. In which he confuses lust with love, and this disturbs his love interest. Which basically tells him he's doing something wrong, but he's not sure what. He is also very assertive and does what needs to be done,sarcastic and can read between the lines. He also keeps deals, which makes an important in the story, even though it wouldn't work out in his groups' favor or even his moral compass. I have two questions about the context, Would this kill the pacing? The story is about espionage, so would going home and wondering why the main secondary female lead doesn't like him, but he doesn't know any better and therefore contemplating his life, drag the story's pacing down. Secondly, would erotica chapters be warranted? I personally don't like using it, but I want to show the intensity of it.
