At the start of the book, Kelly meets up with her girlfriends, who she shared a special experience with on her twenty-fifth birthday, which she won’t forget soon. If you want to know more about that, I recommend reading Birthday Experience, the previous book. Either way, some issues are resolved – as in, will things be awkward now between them after what happened? Luckily, the answer is no, so Kelly can be rest assured before she leaves on a trip through Europe with Sam.
One of the most interesting experiences in the book happens when the two of them go to the Netherlands. First of all, I loved this part because it focuses on some specific Dutch words and foods (like “frikandellen”), which we say in Belgium too. It was great to see something like that in an English book. Even though some writers write about traveling, and even include Belgium or the Netherlands during their characters’ travels, few mention the Dutch language and customs. But Simone Freier is an excellent author, detailed and thorough, and the way she described those scenes, I could picture myself right there with Sam and Kelly.
Of course, apart from the ordinary scenes where they’re eating local food and diving into local customs, there are several hot and sexy scenes during the book as well. Going on a trip and visiting some of Sam’s friends means Kelly has to broaden her horizon even more, and get different perspectives on things. I also liked Henk and Zöe, two of Sam’s friends. They formed an intriguing pair, and had an unique and interesting relationship and a lot of respect for each other. In several ways, they reminded me of Sam and Kelly, but they were different at the same itme as well.
European Experience is my favorite installment in this series. It’s now clear that Sam and Kelly have a special emotional bond, and yet at the same time, on a sexual level, they connect well too. I can’t wait to see what happens next for these two. I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Well, the cards didn't play out that way. After a party at which they became reacquainted, it was inevitable. Sam and Kelly just started talking and one thing led to another and they hit it off. Actually, they more than hit it off and they came together in a most unusual way. Sam had more than a little interest in playing sexual games (actually Bondage Dominance Sado-Masochism) and Kelly, it turned out, had more than just a passing interest in herself.
Drawn together by their mutual interest, Sam and Kelly's relationship started to grow. In a relatively short space of time, their relationship deepened to trust and beyond to love.
Kelly and Sam have been together for a time now and for her birthday Sam promised Kelly, among other things, a trip to Europe. This is the canvas upon which author Simone Freier paints the latest installment of this series, "European Experience: Subspace and Love on a Visit to Europe (Experiences)." First, though, Freier tidies up one leftover from "Birthday Experience," the preceding piece of this puzzle, Kelly and Sam's relationship with Julie. Freier does the tidying quite nicely, in a way that is likely to come up in a later offering in this series.
Tidying up finished, Kelly and Sam get ready for and take their trip. During the trip, Sam shows Kelly sites that aren't in most Fodor travel guides. The sites Sam chooses are definitely off the normal beaten tourist path and include spots that Sam had earlier shared with his late wife Margaret. Along the way, they spend time with and share intimacies with Henk/Helga, a straight man with cross-dressing on his mind and Zoe, his bi-sexual partner. The trip also finds them having more than a few mind-bending experiences.
Through it all, the one constant that has remained is their common interest in BDSM. Here's the thing about it, though, it isn't gratuitous. It takes a strong author to create a wild scene, using BDSM as the plot hook, while never letting the prop overpower the story. Freier's skill as an author shines in these scenes where it is also too easy to rely on the sexual play going on rather than showing the human side of this equation. Instead, though, the author uses her considerable skill to keep the fine balance needed to keep the story on track.
Like an artist adept at using light and shadow to enhance a painting, Freier has skillfully woven a tale that highlights the continued deepening of their commitment as it goes through all of the halting steps that relationships take as they evolve. At this point in the relationship, author Freier has it inching haltingly to a major commitment.
I suspect that an author of Freier's caliber has some interesting surprises in store for her readers in the next installment of the "Experiences" saga. It should be out soon and I am looking forward to read it.
