Well out of all the Erotica I’ve read so far, this one, surprisingly, has been my favourite. Ms. Stein has found the perfect balance of smut, character and plot. She was able to provide the reader just enough information about the characters for you to invest into them but didn’t divert so far that you forgot you were reading a piece of Erotica. The story plays with the idea of both female and male dominance and the author was very effective in showing both of these stances in the same story.
Madison, the main female in the story, which seems to be a popular name to use in Erotica as it’s the second piece I’ve read that has used the name for their main female character, owns a bookstore. Not just any bookstore but one that specifically sells Romance and Erotica. In her pursuit to find some help running her store she encounters Andy and Gabriel. While she doesn’t hire Andy, she has rough dirty sex with him on a regular basis. Andy himself, is rough and takes great pleasure in taking control of any sexual encounter. She hires Gabriel because she is enthralled by his passive and quiet nature. Gabriel is the exact opposite of Andy, in every aspect, and what Madison will end up discovering through the many sexual adventures between and with both of them (at the same time) is a side of her she didn’t know about and a pleasure and a love she didn’t know existed.
This book has some immensely erotic scenes that would get just about anyone’s heart racing. I would highly recommend this book to any Erotica lovers or new comers into the genre who aren’t afraid of something new and a little adventure.
