I always enjoy S.C. Daiko’s writing, and she certainly knows her way around a sex scene.
However, although I definitely enjoyed this one, I didn’t really feel like I got enough out of it for more than a three-star rating. I found it difficult to connect with the characters and to feel their chemistry, and I was also hoping for some slightly filthier sex, considering the focus was supposedly that Eleri was a virgin—as it was, the sex scenes were very similar to those in Three, just without the BDSM slant.
I find myself hoping for Daiko to write something a little longer, to really delve into the psyches of her characters and come out with something that grabs me emotionally and doesn’t let go, rather than these shorter, erotic stories with only a minor focus on the wider world and storyline outside the relationships.
An enjoyable, hot menage read, but lacking any real depth.
