When Hilary and her girlfriends rent a country house for the summer, they are pleasantly suprised to meet the somewhat kinky owner Darius. Hilary also meets the blond and beautifully proportioned Haldane. She explores the possibilities on offer, but soon she has a difficult decision to make.

RELEASE NOTES:

I see I forgot to journal this when I read it. Interesting story of power and lust... somehow found the ending a bit disappointing though. Fun read nonetheless.

The plot is rather very thin... Is there a plot? No, a very mediocre read.

Well, this book was not lost, I just had mislaid it... And now it is back and ready to be part of the "BM8 erotic book spiral".

This is one of the *many* spiral books that arrived in Athens while I was away on vacation. I will try to read them all as time permits.

Link to the spiral's journal.

Hillary is a contradictory character. She is not deaf to her body's yearnings, and she is willing to make the most of casual encounters.
What I don't understand is this keeping her eyes closed and pretending she's asleep (dead?) bit of nonsense: when she's sunbathing on the beach & giving in to the invisible caresses, when feigning sleep in the hay barn, and then when an unknown form slips into bed with her. Is she really in a daze, or is meant to add an element of 'mystery' to the story?
Somehow it just doesn't add up, not even at the end, when she closes her eyes and lets her mind fall into the black hole....
I wish there was more dark intrigue and devilishness going on. The Bluebeard theme has potential, but as penelopewanders says, there are no dramatic surprises (for the reader).

Liked the story, but the ending somehow didn't add up to me. I agree with okyrhoe regards Hillary's sleeping/dazing, but apart from that I really enjoyed her encounters' descriptions.

Travelling to molekilby soon.

Edit: 29 July 2009 - molekilby decided to drop out of the spiral, so the book is travelling to the next participant - Kera. Enjoy!

Oh, I had such high hopes for this book! When I started to read, it felt very much like a chick-lit book with added spice, but soon the storyline seemed to stop going anywhere and Hillary just started sleeping with any good looking guy she bumped into - and there doesn't seem to be any other type! So, I'm afraid that I gave up once I got to the hay barn scene, as I found myself not really caring in the slightest what, and who, she decied to do!!

I think this was my favorite book of the spiral so far. The characters were more realistic, and the story was good. It was the first one that I didn't have to put down every once in a while so I didn't get bored.
