A mad one... Mad to live, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time...
Hazel Jones, a 35-year-old professor and honored academic at the fields of Biodiversity and Environment, lives a quite common life, dates a nice and understanding colleague, works for sustainable development, fights against bad use of natural resources, so and so, but something bothers her... Not exactly what is there, but what is not, what is missing in her life, more specifically, in her sexual life...
Dr. Jones is not satisfied at all. She wants more: her fantasies of being taken by several man at once, fantasies of being tied, bound and even spanked torment her incessantly. Muscular men aligning in front of her, giving and receiving all pleasure she had been denying herself for so many years... Wow, that's a lot happening inside her mind... That's when Tiggy, one of her most brilliant female students, asks for being her lodger. Nothing special happens, however, until Hazel starts to secretly read Tiggy's private diary... That small and delicate notebook turns Hazel's life upside down...
Listening to the story is highly enjoyable. The author cleverly approaches several delicate subjects, in a well-humored and intelligent way. That's probably one of the best features of this book: the witty ways the author leads the reader along the story. Background and parallel plots are quite shallow, but there is no problem about it, the way Hazel's intimate dilemmas are presented are so nice... as well as her sexual adventures... Reader's performance is also very good, specially the impersonation of the obnoxious but highly-seductive Miles, who brings the listener most of the finest moments of the narrative.
Pretty tame overall. Funny, eventually, but hardly erotic.
A bit disappointed. Thought it might eventually become raunchy, but it never really does. The build up is dreadfully slow.
This was my first erotic audiobook.
I must say that I, AND my partner, have found it extremely arousing!!
Hereby, I highly recomend it for couples, males and females.
I can add little to the previous reviews - I agree with them all - a very enjoyable listen. The writing, characters and narration are wonderful. All I ask is for a lot more offerings from this author from Audible, with the same narrator. Truly intelligent erotica, scrimping on neither.
I enjoyed this book. This is a nicely told story that kept me in suspense and wanting to listen longer. Relaxing yet stimulating at the same time.
