I'm sort of at a loss about how I want to rate this book. This is my third of the four books in the series. Just so you know, you don't have to read the books in order and you don't have to read any of the previous books to read this one. In general, I have really enjoyed this super erotic series and the characters we've been introduced to.
We first meet the main characters in this book, Logan and Auralie, in the last book. Auralie is a virgin who is being auctioned off at the sex club where Logan is a fantasy maker. If you have not read any of the other books in the series, a fantasy maker is a borderline prostitute but then not really? It's a little complicated. The memberships to the silo are extremely expensive and exclusive. Logan chooses his work as a fantasy maker because it allows him to be a member of the club and also to do all the super freaky things that he feels a constant need to do. The memberships to the silo are extremely expensive and exclusive. Logan chooses his work as a fantasy maker because it allows him to be a member of the club and also to do all the super freaky things that he feels a constant need to do. Because of issues and his past that keep Logan awake at night, he basically uses sex as a drug to numb the pain.
Auralie's backstory is even more complicated. Without spoiling anything, I can tell you that there are some questions about whether she wants to be in a position to auction off her virginity. We find out pretty early on, that she hates the situation that she is in but is doing it voluntarily because of something going on with her family. Her sponsor at the club, the man who is auctioning her off, parades her around and makes her perform sexual acts, short of sex, with men at the club as a way to increase her value. It is a little strange. It is even stranger that Logan's initial fascination with Auralie develops as a result of watching her in the club with other men.
Ok, so while I do this review, I'm starting to understand some of my own ambivalence about this book. I think the issue for me is that I had a really hard time understanding the connection between the main characters. It is difficult for a reader like me to get into a story about characters who spend a lot of time banging other people. Or in Auralie's case, doing everything but banging them. Even though there is a lot of instant chemistry between these two, I just wasn't really into them as a couple.
As with all the books in this series, the erotic content is 5 enthusiastic stars and the story is pretty good. For me this is going to be 3 stars but it might be 4 or higher for you readers who like to spread the love.
