Mary is surprised by the deep feelings that follow in the wake of her first sexual encounter, but fascination with her lover John doesn’t dim her desire for the unapologetically lusty Irish bar-owner, Max. Feeding one hunger has unleashed other needs, and Mary wants to experience everything her new life has to offer.
But Mary’s dark desires aren’t the only ones swirling in the depths of The Fetish Box, and violence erupts amid the passion. When one of the men is attacked and the people at The Box put in danger, Mary realizes that some desires are more dangerous than others…
Bomy’s Flutter: hot&gun little tidbit
World Building: Contemporary Florida.
Characters: Mary evolves some from the first installment as she experiences more. I definitely approve of her and John’s explorations, though the Max angle begs to be explored as well. At the same time, I’m not sure I want to read about her exploring the Max angle, so I’m very curious what the third part of this broken-up novel has to show.
Plot: We got a better feel for many of the characters involved in this part and I enjoyed it more then the first. There was more action, both one on one and outside of it, more excitement and danger.
Writing: Good, in this regard there’s no difference between this part and the first. I still maintain that this author has a gift for building well-rounded characters, even if her work is broken up in pieces that do tend to take away from the charm.
Curb Appeal: Very good since I got the chance to read this right after the first. The cover is awesome, the blurb is tempting, but I’d wait for all of them to be out before buying the set just so I’d have a full story. I don’t like tidbits, they frustrate me not motivate into buying, I must admit.
All in all, this was a good addition to the first fragment, and it had more going on as far as action goes. I’m curious about what’s in store with part three, though it sucks I have to wait a few months (this is written in January) to read it.
I so hate waiting, I give full-length books in series about half of the series to be out before starting to read the first. Imagine my excitement for waiting for the third tidbit from a whole book to come out.
