When I read the first book in this series, Origins of a Fetish, it was intriguing and different to other erotica I’d read previously and definitely good enough to make me want to read the next book – now we’ve arrived at book 3 and I’m really hooked.
The relationship between Sam and Kelly is fascinating on many levels and is truly blooming. Although being very different they complement each other and the alternating narrative voice Simone Freier uses gives both their perspectives extremely convincingly and with subtlety. The characters are becoming fully rounded and we learn yet more about them and they are even more compelling. The detail is still there as they spend the weekend together indulging various (eye-opening!) fantasies and fetishes developing an intimate bond and trust which has now led to them falling in love. Their openness is impressive and the only slight criticism I would have is that in the scenes with Kelly’s friends and the women at the pond the open discussions feel slightly stilted though probably only because this contrasts with the otherwise impressive flow of narrative the author offers.
I really am very keen to find out what birthday surprises Sam has in store for Kelly – so on to the next book. If you call yourself an aficionado of erotic fiction but haven’t discovered the ‘Experiences’ series yet, you have a lot to look forward to!
