This is the #23 in the Anita Blake, Vampire Hunter Series.
I originally read this book in December 2014 and just recently listened to the audiobook. As discussed below – the story is great. The audio book is fantastic, too. The voice of Anita is spot on. An added bonus for the audio book – I was able to multi-task while listening to book.
While the Anita Blake series is usually very high on the paranormal side, this particular book is not. It’s more like an insight into the polyamorous lifestyle. Or as Jason said in the book, “It’s like a lesbian tutorial.”
For those of you who have not read the series, Anita Blake is an incredibly strong female character and I don’t mean her paranormal or metaphysical strength. She is incredibly brave. She sees no other options than facing her fears. In Jason, it is surprising to learn that some things can still make her blush. Read Jason, and find out what could possibly make Anita be unsure of herself in a bedroom setting. In the book, Anita says, “I was so far outside my comfort zone I couldn’t see it from the shore anymore. I felt lost at sea, but determined to weather the storm, even if it was a storm formed of soft flesh and silk.”
While Jason is usually a jokester, he pushes Anita to answer difficult questions. “Are you really willing to spend the rest of your life trying to date someone you not only don’t love, but that you actually don’t enjoy having sex with?”
This is an awesome series! Even if paranormal romance is not your thing, READ this book.
