I've re-read this story multiple times, and I continue to enjoy it every time. Its strength is in its realistic portrayal of a married couple with issues, and their initial ambivalence about a sexual situation they haven't encountered before. This story element is altogether believable and plays out much as it would in real life. In addition, the sex scenes are graphic, paced with skill, and have enough tension running though them to quicken the pulse and shorten the breath no matter how often I read it. The fact that it includes a bonus excerpt of the sequel to a story I'm greatly anticipating makes this read worth far more than the purchase price. Erotica lovers will enjoy High Stakes Nikki.
