Held Interest but Questionably Categorized Genre

This book was decent and entertaining but it was heavy on the erotica so if you don’t expect it, I can see how it could throw you off. However, I didn’t see a lot of the twists and turns that unraveled so that made it worth it. The character development could’ve been stronger so the events made more sense.

Enjoyed the story but...

I didn't think all of the lesbian sex scenes were necessary. Even if it weren't lesbian, many scenes were just unnecessary and gratuitous. I don't know why the author felt so compelled to graphically describe a lesbian sex scene. The story would have been much better without it.

Lesbian and open marriage

Disgusting. Should have been some type of warning in summary. A warning. I don’t read these types of books.
