The central male character is of course footloose and fancy free, to use an old-fashioned phrase. The central female character and her shadowy husband are still married. This latter aspect I found a bit depressing, in view of their obsession with sexual gratification as obviously the only means left to achieve any kind of physical/emotional/spiritual fulfilment. This was so sad, but nevertheless realistic, as they were non-creative types, he “a leading player in the stock market,” and she, “a sales director for a high end fashion chain.” Limited interests. Few hobbies, if any. At a loss to find anything better to do than to open a boarding house where people of a similar mind could stay to indulge their animal cravings, which needed the presence of lewd murals on the bedroom walls to inspire them. But I cannot mark the author down for that, as he is only being realistic. Neither can I mark him down for the great sex but lamentable lack of any engagement of the emotions, and the huge rewards available in the exchange of such feelings, which in the end are surely more enduring than pure and simple animal lust. Because again it is, alas, a realistic depiction; these are human beings one meets every day. Play it safe. Don’t let your heart engage, the absence of all post-coital tenderness serving as a means to achieve emotional dislocation. So sad. Oh, well.
The author is very good at setting the scene. His background detail is carefully researched and therefore wholly believable. This is not for readers looking for romance, and the author is completely honest and upfront about it. It is a narrative designed to titillate, stimulate, excite and gratify, plain and simple, and in my view on this basis alone it must have a huge market in readers of both sexes (or, if today’s media is to be believed, the many sexes that now exist!). Within its brief, this book does the job, fully and completely, insofar as providing a massive hit of sexual stimulation. Therefore I cannot help but give it five stars. So readers be warned, seek peace and seclusion before taking up this book, for it will absorb you to the hilt. Again, Mr Benson, “thanks for the arousal!”
The male protagonist is an artist who has been commissioned to paint sexually themed murals throughout a large country house situated remotely in the highlands. He is being well paid and chooses not to probe too deeply as to their purpose other than to understand that his elegant and sexually provocative hostess holds occasional parties & weekend retreats for her well-heeled friends. They are both single and the initial restraint which they show to each other is tempered solely by professional and polite decorum. This behavior in keeping with good taste and propriety against an intensely erotic backdrop defines this book. This story is a foray into eroticism rather than soft or hard porn. The descriptive narrative works well and the highland imagery comes alive through well-written description, as does the sexual imagery. Maybe, it’s better to read this book in private, rather than when you are on a bus.
