Review

"Lexx is a master wordsmith with a knack for creating vivid scenes and sexy stories.
Invigorating and special--something not to be missed!" - At The Inkwell

"Lexx is a master of the English language, and I love that almost as much as his stories... The sexual tension is evident throughout, and it kept me reading through the night." - Manic Readers

About the Author

International attorney, award-winning journalist and last of a modest raconteur bloodline, J.D. Lexx has been a storyteller for most of his life and a student of humanity for even longer. Perhaps it's no wonder that he takes such pleasure in the subtle tease of the written word, in kindling curiosity with every shared tale, then daring the imagination to continue on beyond "The End."

A traveler by nature, Lexx spends most of his time between the frenzied streets of New York and the slower pace of New Orleans' Vieux Carré. When not exploring the sensual psyche through his writing, he can usually be found honing his skills in the kitchen or working alongside charitable organizations to promote literacy and tolerance--two causes not only reflected in his work, but forever dear to his heart.

I've never read such an evocative, carnal description of an orchid. Not satisfied with mere double entendre, Mr. Lexx, as so much of his work does, adds additional layers to his descriptions. The orchid, not solely as a tempting, beautiful flower, or as the uncanny resemblance of the sexual anatomy of a women, but more, as a description of woman herself, her psyche, her passions and secret desires, and ultimately, her flowering.

The thought occurred that perhaps I'm reading more into his words than his intentions. To that end, I started reading this with a lovely glass of Cabernet Sauvignon, beautifully crimson, of course, to hopefully quell any overactive brain cells and simply enjoy the written words. But his work is so nuanced, so layered, that it's impossible to separate his actual words with the subtext woven through it. That is what makes his books so extraordinary, I believe. Much like Christine sees below Mitchell's quiet, public facade to his inner demons and needs, JD's hidden meanings bubble and boil close to the surface, for anyone daring or compelled to look.

Sensuality seems to come so naturally. His characters are very tactile, but also compelled to indulge in all of their senses. And why not avail ourselves of the banquet that taste, touch, smell, visual and vocal can add to our quest for pleasure? If there is one underlying theme in his Crimson Confession series, it's that we are sexually stymied by puritanical notions of acceptable behavior, but why do we allow it? His characters learn that there is freedom to be found in those willing to risk it. Perhaps that is the lesson he hopes we all learn, eventually.

I'm not one for short novella's (200 pages or less), But I am so glad to have taken the chance in reading this! It hit all the right spots for me, and transpired in a steady pace, with a little surprise and suspense. Truly wet my whistle, and I just wished the story went further. Overall, the class and character it carried had me blushing...and wanting to "push limits"...and I'll just leave it there...I love JD Lexx's style of writing...the kind that doesn't have to be "in your face" and distasteful, but gets your imagination to roam further than if it was in your face! I'm sitting here on bated breath waiting for what he comes out with next!!!!

"The orchid beckons, she calls a siren's song in light and color to bring even the proudest to their knees."

This closes the first paragraph in the Order of the Orchidarion... and that same hypnotic lyrical prose carries through to the final words. Rather than summarize the story, I will jump right in to a few things I love about this novella:

Throughout this and every Lexx writing, he indulges your mind with sensory images that you won't want to let go of and at the end, will eventually crave. In this Crimson Confession, for me it was a craving to touch the wax-like petals of an orchid, to visually devour their beauty, inhale the faint scent of cinnamon and rose petals, and hear the sternness derived from passion in that one word..."Identify!"

Next, I love that JD can use such precise wording in the most effectual way to ensure the reader has all the pre-story and character build-up needed but without dwelling on the past. "In a long string of unsustainable misfortune, the day that finally broke Mitchell's spirit had surely been the cruelest of them all-"

He also writes this novella remarkable well from a female POV: "...but I would take those glances home and hold them close for days, creating my own realities around every passing flirtation without ever really knowing why." Truly a female obsessive trait that most men would laugh at, certainly wouldn't articulate so passionately.

And finally one of my very favorites, his excellence at double-entendres: "You observe only. If any flowers need be manipulated tonight, I will be the one to do so."

So basically one might say that I absolutely love this book, that it is a sensual delight and intensely seductive. And I am very positive in saying that JD Lexx's writing can "bring even the proudest to their knees!"

Okay this is my third book by JD and he has a reader for life. iI can't begin to put into words how much I enjoy his writing style and the way he crafts and weaves a story. It is done in such a creatively delicious way. The erotic nature of this story without being completely in your face is so refreshing and speaks volumes to JDs talent as an author. This is a short read but a must read!! Amazing!!!

JD Lexx has done a phenomenal job with this book. It is filled with metaphors. I enjoyed this book beyond anything I expected in this genre. I personally love Orchids they are so delicate and sensual. They take great care under a firm but gentle hand. The writing in this book is very poetic it sings a song that will be stuck forever in your heart. If you look deeper into this there is so much more beyond intimacy and flowers. This book breaks through boundaries that people set for themselves but what if we didn't? What if we just let go to enjoy every touch, smell, and tasted it all for what it really is. We're only as happy as we let ourselves be, remember that the next time you think your unhappy. I recommend opening this book you might find that there could be more to you own happiness than meets the eye.
