In this installment, Kelly’s twenty-fifth birthday is coming up. Sam invites a few of her friends and hosts a party for her birthday, complete with a theme, games, and the atmopshere the reader is used to in this books: one of openness, adventure, and exploring sexual experiences. Sam has planned most of it, including some games that will push the boundaries of the other guests, and in particular Kelly’s boundaries and courage.
To any reader, it’ll be obvious how different Kelly and Sam are. Kelly is a young woman, Sam is an older widower, old enough to be her father in fact. And whereas the series starts out with a mutual attraction between the two of them, and them deciding to take things further and have some fun, it’s now clear that there’s something more between Kelly and Sam than just being attracted to one another. They share a deeper connection, a more intimate relationship. They’re on a journey together, to find themselves, to learn more about the other, to explore the edge of their own desires. It’s not just Kelly learning from Sam anymore – Sam learns a great deal from her as well. And it’s this relationship, this bond, that forms the core of this book, and that makes it unique and different from other books in the same genre.
Of course there’s also fun, BDSM, role-playing, fantasies, and all that, and while there’s definitely an erotic element, the focus is on intimacy, trust, openness.
Writing is, as usual, quite good. The plot is imaginative and creative, and even the secondary characters come across as real people. This is an enjoyable and entertaining read, but more than anything, it’ll make the reader think about boundaries, about intimacy, about the meaning of love, of bonds, of the unique relationship people can have with one another.I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Freier also kept with the back-and-forth narration style that I absolutely loved in the third book. It was so great to see each character's perspective, and compare them against their counterpart to see what was REALLY happening, not just the physical explanation. It helped continue to push the series past the superficial, surface level plot that many books of this genre fall into. I really appreciated the candid-ness about the fragility of such relationships, and it definitely made the book seem more real.
However, and maybe this is because I have read the past couple of books in the “Experiences” series, the plot gets a little repetitive. Just like the 50 Shades of Grey series that made this genre socially popular, the plot thinned out by this book. It is very difficult to keep an active reader into Book 4 of ANY genre, but especially so for this series since it talks about much of the same things throughout all of the books. Simone Freier tries really hard to combat this by introducing new characters and expanding on characters introduced in previous books, but I sometimes felt that I was re-reading scenes from the past books--it just seemed to be caught in a pattern that is hard for me to get fully engrossed in.
If you liked her other books in the series, then this falls right into place in terms of expectations and what the book delivers. Just be aware that it is hard for ANY author to move past the 3rd and 4th book slump, and Freier made a very solid attempt to keep it exciting.
