I began this title, unaware that it is book three of the series, ……. Having not read the other two novels, I found myself a bit lost from time to time but not to the point where it impeded my enjoyment of this one.
Since I haven’t read either of the other titles in this series, I can’t say if it’s my favorite, but I can say that I absolutely loved this novel. Charming, sweet, and wonderfully decadent romance, I liken this to a chocolate mousse and raspberry Chambord cake, rich and sweet, all at once.
A couple of the many things appreciated about this novel.
1) how consent is a part of intimacy,
2) how the concept of loss of virginity without pain is presented (this is such an important bit of awareness for young people, to know that penetrative vaginal sex for someone born female doesn’t have to result in pain and/or bleeding for that first time).
I really and truly enjoyed this and I can’t wait to read more of the author’s work.
