This was one tougher to evaluate, as I like it, but it's not one of my overwhelming favorites from this author like many of the other stories are. That said, I'll share my insights:
part 1: Scott Gallifrey is a hard worker, concerned about job security when one day he gets the shock of his life, and boy is it huge! Comes with major $$$ but also a huge catch. Will he take it? Will his family say yes too? Surprises ensue! There's one major twist--and it is NOT really from the "offer" that turns his world upside down. There's plenty of wrestling with the idea, which makes the situation feel more real and there's even some significant conflict with a surprising admission from someone unexpected. My only reservation is how I believe this first part should have run longer, as it seemed cut off after the surprise "reveal" at the end from one sister and one brother's blow up.
Part 2: Jason (the lone son) fumes at such a conundrum. Shannon steams; Mom seduces; Jason vacillates; Shannon convinces; acceptance is nearly full-on, although the possible resolution is still in doubt. Will Jason accept things and get to have what he really wants?
Part 3: Shannon seduces; Jason falls; family reconciles; Angie gets her man; then biggest twist unveils itself at the end--but not before Scott/Shannon/mom enjoy each other--setting the stage for the larger finale.
This tale is either a larger version of Incest Sorority or just related to it, as the universe expands significantly. That part doesn't bother me at all, although what I hoped to see in this anthology was one or more of the females already showing or perhaps already had given birth. While each part as a stand-alone might feel a bit truncated unnecessarily, each does blend into the other. Of course, this tale could be expanded to include "what happens after 5 years," although this may not be slated for a sequel. I think it's ripe for one, as it would be interesting to see how the characters handled the complex relationships and how stable or not they ended up or if it just became a free-for-all.
Solid read. I say 3 for each, although some might say 3.5 for the stories as a whole.
