My Rating: 2/5
Virginal twenty-two-year-old Mary has just inherited a sex shop in Florida from her mother. After a long drive from California, she arrives at her deceased mother’s house only to be confronted immediately with two equally sexy strangers: the strong, silent John and the irreverent, taunting Max. She’s innocent, almost completely untouched, but feels a completely uncharacteristic pull to each man. Shocking even herself, she realizes it’s not an unwelcome desire.
I tried really hard and wanted to like this story. I just couldn’t. It wasn’t bad, just OK. I’m not even sure I can explain what it was that I didn’t like very well. It wasn’t just one thing.
Mary, a virgin, inherits her mother’s bar and sex store. I didn’t really have a problem with this; I mean you leave your family what you have. It was when she shows up in Florida and upon first meeting Max she’s letting him kiss and fondle her breast. Really? Talk about moving fast, especially for a virgin.
Then along comes John and Mary agrees to be taught how to have sex and dominate? She went from virginal to kinky sex kitten in less than an afternoon. I didn’t feel connected to the characters in any way really. That may be due to the fact that this is the first installment of three. Basically a novel has been cut into thirds and it shows. This story doesn’t end it just stops! I realize this is growing trend and I don’t like it. It makes me feel like I’m getting cheated. I may have given this more stars if it was completed, but with the way it ended I just couldn’t. I’m not sure if I will or can read the next installments.
I recommend this to those who want just erotica.
