THIS REVIEW CONTAINS SOME MINOR SPOILERS. I'm not going to give away everything, but I can't say what I want about the work without starting out this review with that warning.
The writing was good overall, and the plot flowed well. One of the traps in erotica is forcing the characters into the situations where they wind up having sex the way the author wants, and it's a trap that this author completely eluded - there were no decisions the characters made that were unlikely enough to startle the reader. That's definitely a plus here.
I'm taking off two "half stars" from full marks for the two things that I didn't completely appreciate. And here's where the spoilers start.
Firstly, there's a strap-on involved, and the character wearing the strap-on is able to have pleasure and achieve orgasm while wearing it, as if it was a real penis. Now, I've got no experience with strap-ons, but it's impossible for me to understand how someone could reasonably react that way. I feel like either the author should have taken some pains to explain better how that was possible, or make change the dynamic of the scene.
Secondly, the last page of the work is a coda out of left field. It's a bit like the movie "From Dusk 'Till Dawn." The movie takes a jarring, abrupt left turn half way through. The jarring, abrupt left turn this book takes at the end was certainly a surprise, but it wasn't at all what one would expect having read the preview, description, tags... It felt completely artificial, as if the author had suddenly forgotten that she wanted the characters to end up the way they do. Perhaps it is a set-up for a sequel. I dunno, but the sequel would have rather a different genre choice, if it's going to be honestly marked.
