The book had a little bit of everything from romance, sex, suspense, drama and action. It wasn’t your run of the mill erotica. While the main plot centered around trying to reconnect a father with his son, the deeper layer surrounding sexuality, relationships and our inhibitions and fears that affect them is what really runs this book. Christopher Rice’s writing was very insightful and thoughtful which brought a certain philosophical tone to meld with the sensuality and sexuality of the book. This was an unexpected but appreciated aspect of the book and what made it different from other books of this genre.
As much as I have praised the book, I can’t honestly say that I was blown away by it. I have a certain standard for books in the erotica genre which others have met and/or surpassed it. For me, its synopsis was a little misleading when it mentions the conflict between Elaine and her gay best friend Jonathan since I was expecting that storyline to play out more than just about one-fourth of the book. And, honestly, I was expecting a little more sex especially when this book is categorized as erotica. While I do appreciate the sensuality and the unabashed sexuality, I thought combining it with a little more sex would’ve added more to the book. Overall, Rice managed to write a very smart and thoughtful love story with some magic thrown into the mix. Being as this is the first book I’ve read from him, I’m looking forward to reading his other works if this book is anything to go by. It seems the writing gene was passed down from mother, Anne Rice, to son.
The Flame, a novella that started this new world of awakening passion and delivering desire to go beyond the limits we place on each other. This new world gives shocks and twist I want to believe in. The stories of the "Feu de Coeur" a world that delivers an awakening of senses and sensuality brings the characters and readers to their knees. The world continues in "The Surrender Gate".
Emily is set to inherit a mass fortune from Arthur Benoit. She has been enlisted by Arthur to locate his son who disappeared a decade before. George Dugas believes he knows the location of the missing. Then Dugas offers the world of The Desire Exchange to Emily and Jonathan to find Benoit's long lost son. Immediately a new world and status is set up for Emily and Jonathan with new names and new twist. Enter the remarkable Marcus Dylan, a beautiful man who instantly stirs the folds of Emily's nether mound and causes doubt of what she ever believed in. All the twists and turns that happen next, you need to pick up the amazing novel to find out. Trust me, you will not be disappointed.
The Desire Exchange offers a world of pleasure, sensuality, desire and very erotic sex. There is a hint of a supernatural twist in a place that seems all to real. Well I would want this to be real. Come on we would all do this if it was an real option and probably wouldn't get caught. I really like the humor in the novel as well. One blurb I never thought I would have ever read and had me reading over and over with laughter and turn on, " You're free to put a bullet in me if you'd like, and after it comes out the other side of me like a flattened quarter, I'll even let you have it back so you can make a necklace out of it. If you want, I'll even pretend the whole thing hurts a little. But only if it'll make your nipples hard." See makes you want to run and get a copy of this book.
I received this novel earlier because I was in a snowy situation for an honest review. This is my honest review. You will not be disappointed by Christopher Rice's new world. I am so looking forward to Christopher's continuation of the world of The Desire Exchange in "Kiss the Flame."
I generally love anything by Christopher Rice, so I stepped "outside the box" so to speak to read this novel. I did enjoy the read, but couldn't completely engage in the storyline. Perhaps that's because I seldom read novels in this genre. It seemed like the characters emotions were somewhat blunted, preventing me from completely emerging myself in the storyline.
Overall, I enjoyed the read and will continue to read anything that Christopher deigns to write.
