About the Author
Kallysten’s most exciting accomplishment to date was to cross a few thousand miles and an ocean to pursue (and catch!) the love of her life. She has been writing for fifteen years, and always enjoyed sharing her stories and listening to the readers' reactions. After playing with science fiction, short stories and poetry, she is now trying her hand, heart and words at paranormal romance novels.

"I was provided with a complimentary copy of this book so I could give an honest review."
The author has done an excellent job developing these characters and the sexual side of their relationship doesn't overwhelm the story but adds a richness to it. As she explores her sexuality, it brings them closer and makes her stronger and more confident. So many authors think that being extremely graphic with the sexual descriptions makes it more real but I prefer this author's style gives it much more depth. While it does not shy away from the descriptions, it intertwines them with the feelings. It feels real and right for them.
I received a copy in return for a honest review.
You have got to read book one to really love these characters. This book was so amazingly written. Sizzling HOT. I loved Anando and Virginia, but OMG the scene with Brett and Anando was absolutely breathtaking, the way Kallysten writes grips you and pulls you in, I felt like I was right there on that chair with Leo and Virginia, yes I have a tiny crush on Leo!!! This is not just an erotic book it has a wonderful love story as well. I cannot wait to find out more about Lisa, Brett and Leo's triad. You can feel the love they have through the words of this story. I highly recommend this scintillating, sexy, smoldering book!!!
But I'll try...
Living Out of the Box is the newest addition to Kallysten's FABULOUS Out of the Box series. Here we find Virginia and Anando starting there new life together as a couple. They still play their games though. Nothing could stop them from that LOL!
Virginia has come a long way from that short story where we first met her. It's almost as if she were a caterpillar back then in the first Out of the Box. Then, throughout the other novellas in the series, she entered a sort of chrysalis to undergo a transformation. Now, with Living Out of the Box, she is ready to emerge as a beautiful butterfly, slowly unfurling her wings with the confidence that that beauty brings. (How's that for imagery?)
Anando is as UBER SMEXY as always. The support and encouragement that he gives Virginia is fantastic. He's always there to keep her safe while gently urging her to do the things that he knows she will enjoy. Giving her the confidence to release those small inner feelings of shame and guilt that still remained, even after all this time.
The framework of this book is similar to the Out of the Box series in it's complete form. Kallysten has divided the novel into parts, giving each a brief two or three word title, hinting at it's contents. Similar to the other stories in a way, but also different enough to be considered new. For the other installments of the series it was their covers showing an image related to the game that Anando and Virginia were to play within it's pages. However, these new titles are actually pretty tantalizing. They grab your attention an draw you in. Another thing that shows the continuity within the series is that all of the parts are seen from Virginia's POV except for the last one. The ending is is in Anando's POV and we see through his inner dialog how completely satisfied, happy and proud of Virginia he was.
There is one thing that I must warn you about. The spiciness of this book is HIGH THRESHOLD so if you're and erotica virgin, I'd choose something else to start with. (But Kallysten is a great person to loose your cherry to. Believe me, I'm talking from experience!) This book has EVERYTHING in it. When I say everything, I mean EVERYTHING!!!!! Here, let me tell you. There is exhibitionism, voyeurism, M/F, M/M, slight F/F action, menage with anal and group sex to say the least. So don't say I didn't warn you! Living Out of the Box is so STEAMY that I needed to change my panties TWICE! And that was after I had found my man to help me out before I....um...BOILED OVER!
I never fail to enjoy myself while reading Kallysten's work. Amid all the other authors out there writing paranormal erotic romance, she is CATEGORICALLY STUNNING!

It was a serious erotica book! Serious in that sense, that Living Out of the Box included lot of explicit sex scenes, M/F, M/M, M/F/M scenes.Read more
