Rice had filled its pages with all sorts of kinky stuff. I found most of the characters in this book one-dimensional, except for Alexi, who intrigued me from the start.

Well, the same holds true now obviously triloogy erotica.

Anne lives and works in Southern California. I really, really do not like rape. Tentacles, that’s what this book was missing. Goodreads is the world’s largest sledping for readers with over 50 million reviews.
