Virtual Encounters is Sci-Fi erotica for the adventurous reader. Be warned, if you are not into gender bending and other taboos, then this is not the book for you. If you are, then you are in for a treat. Craig and Veronica visit a futuristic convention where they purchase the HoloGen virtual system that allows them to enact their wildest (and I do mean wild) sexual fantasies. They create their ideal partner in Honey but things swiftly spiral into all manner of proclivities and scenarios once they discover the full range of the system’s capabilities. There’s even something for the vampire and alien lovers. Like I said, things get wild.
The author writes realistic, well drawn out characters and his descriptions are detailed, graphic and hot. The dialogue is well written and realistic and throughout there is a undercurrent of emotion that is poignant and heartfelt. As stated previously, there is a fair amount of “virtual” transsexual and m/m action which is not my thing but if it’s yours and you are looking for something that goes beyond the norm, I can recommend this sexy, smart and inventive tale.
