So this is what bothers me about this book.
- The warning in the Kindle store for this book reads "This ebook contains material not suitable for readers under 18. In also contains scenes that some may find objectionable, including BDSM, ménage sex, bondage, anal sex, sex toys, double penetration, voyeurism, edge play, and hockey equipment being used inappropriately." I read the warning before downloading the book, so I felt I was fully prepared. However I was a little shocked to discover that the ménage sex they were talking about was actually with all 5 players (even though there are only 2 guys shown on the cover).
- I found it extremely hard to figure out who was who. Each player was know by both their first and last name, although never at the same time. So I was constantly wondering if Dominik was the same person as Vanek or was he maybe Mason? And maybe the sex scenes would have worked more had I knew who was where and doing what. Maybe it would have felt like there was more of a connection between the characters.
- I really feel like Oriana felt like this was a perfectly viable option. Crap, Dad's gonna cut me off and I really want to finish med school, so I guess a gang bang is the perfect solution. Seriously!? Ever heard of student loans? Or maybe scholarships? I'm kind of thinking I wouldn't want her as my doctor because she doesn't actually really seem that smart.
- I read to the 37% marking (and there are a few previews at the end, so I was actually more than 37% into the story). And I think there's a huge case of too many Doms in the kitchen, or I guess that should be the dungeon. All 5 players were Doms? Well, except maybe TJ, he just seemed to be along for the ride.
The thing is, I'm okay with BDSM, and I'm okay with ménage (I'm actually okay with everything else listed in the warning). I've even read a fair share of large group ménage (I think 9 people involved is the most I've read though). But this one just felt off for me. It left me feeling dirty, but not in a good way. Part of me feels like I need to finish the book. Maybe it will get better. It has quite a few good reviews. But most of me is just glad that I didn't waste any money on this one (it was a freebie).
