In Book 3 we continue the experiences of Sam but now we have Kelly, his punishment paramour, as narrator. This book starts in medias res with Kelly driving home from Sam's house after their `first experience encounter' and Kelly offers her viewpoint of this ongoing tale of BDSM punishment/medical fantasy: `In fact, it had started with more than I had expected: More seriousness, more discussion and intellectual interest, more kindness and compassion. And, yet, it also involved more pain - and not just the physical pain of being spanked (or paddled, strapped, or switched), but also the psychological aspects of Sam's fetishes. Perhaps Sam was correct, when he said that it takes a strong person to complete - let alone enjoy - this type of experience. And that brought another flood of thoughts into my head. Why did I enjoy being spanked by Sam? I really don't think it's my adoptive father's lack of caring or sole focus on his sons and sports. I also don't think it's just due to my bland male friends and their immature sexual approach. I realized that over the past 24 hours, this man had brought me to orgasm more times than I had experienced in the rest of my life combined. And, these orgasms were hot.' Apparently Sam's network of fetishes - spanking and discipline, medical exams, enemas, needles, and shots - have stirred Kelly's imagination and vulnerability to assuming the dominant role as opposed to the submissive role.
And Freier, always one to deliver both sides of a situation shares Sam's concurrent reverie: `The scene with Kelly had included many of his fetish interests, such as spanking and `medical sex'. And Kelly had performed wonderfully, being extremely open with her body and her thoughts, taking her punishments well, and even getting turned-on in both `top' and `bottom' roles. While he had tried to surprise her with new experiences, she also had surprised him at every step along the way - with her directness, openness, enthusiasm, and raw sexuality. We had done a lot of things very intimately together without transferring body fluids ... until our water glasses from the sauna were mixed up. It was quite simple to `redefine' sex to not include eating or drinking after each other ... or kissing. But Kelly and I were developing real feelings for each other. Kelly had expected sex. And I realized that, being widowed, I had no responsibility to anyone else; it was solely up to me. And an opportunity like this may never come again (in a manner of speaking). Kelly had not informed me of any sexually transmitted diseases. And, I trusted her. On the other hand, this had become more than roleplay. I had deep feelings for Kelly - on many levels.' The age differences enter the picture and that complicates the vantage of both partners.
Kelly decides to her invite her friends Julie and Linda (whom we had met briefly in Book 2) for a weekend to test the viability of her relationship to Sam (and Sam's to her). She informs them of Sam's turn-on in the idea of submission. And so Freier expands the ménage a quatre takes her story to a fascinating conclusion - or is there more to follow? Fine writing from an author who knows her genre. Grady Harp, October 14
This third (and possibly final? The ending made that up for discussion...) book in the trilogy really lets the idea of romance play a large part--it is not just about fetishism and the results of exploring fantasies, but it focuses on the emotional connection between Sam and Kelly. This is what makes this book stand out--the growing love and trust between the two characters seems so real. It definitely offers a mature viewpoint as it focuses more on inner reflection, doubt, emotion, and the balance between being psychologically aware while still giving into your fetishes.
I really enjoyed the parts where Kelly was the narrator, since reading things from her perspective added a lot more volume to the situations in the book and gave a good, varied interpretation of evens. Very rarely does an author seamlessly provide the switch in viewpoints, and dedicating entire sections for Kelly to explain and reveal her thought process was a good quality in the book.
However, reader beware, it is definitely one of those books where you really need to read the previous one to understand the trilogy. This book references a lot of what happened in the previous book, and I can imagine a reader could get very confused by some of these referrals to past situations. It is by no means repetitive, though, as the plot expands on the events of the previous book and adds a fresh perspective.
Frier uses a unique hook to grab her readers and pull them into her work. That hook is an explicit exploration of the world of fetishism and fantasy. Freier writes some incredibly powerful scenes involving spanking and the use of sex toys that are not pornographic. Instead, she uses them like a canvas upon which she pens the basic love story that underpins “Weekend Experience: Exploration of Fetishes by an Unlikely Couple, and the Blossoming of Love (Experiences Book 3).”
In the earlier volume of this series, you meet Kelly and Sam, a very unlikely couple. She is a beautiful twentysomething grad student and he is a fortysomething. Normally, they would never meet and become involved. However, Freier, brings them together in quite a plausible way – she wants career guidance so she can plan her future and he has it. Freier sets up the meeting and lets the action roll out from there. Sam wonders if Kelly would “play” with him in his special “fantasy suite” and he asks. A curious Kelly says yes. And, they are off on their exploration of fetishism and sexual play.
It takes a talented author to set a scene like this. Freier's approach is light-handed as she lets the story tell itself. She guides it expertly along the route she wants it to travel, using the world of BDSM and fantasy as the backdrop. It would have been easy to let the world of sexual play become the centerpiece of both novels, but it is not. Instead, it is the canvas upon which she paints her word picture.
Where the first volume explores Kelly's growth as a person, this volume explores Sam and Kelly's growth individually and as a couple. In writing about this growth, Freier is inviting us to become flies on the wall, watching Kelly and Sam play.
As the volume progresses, Kelly becomes Sam's equal. She is his match and sexual mate, and may even be his superior. Sam is no longer the sole narrator of the story; Kelly becomes a co-narrator in a point-counterpoint narrative that enhances your understanding of the couple, their feelings and their world. You can easily empathize with them.
Simone Freier's “Weekend Experience: Exploration of Fetishes by an Unlikely Couple, and the Blossoming of Love (Experiences Book 3)” is a memorable novel. In “Experiences: Weekend,” the couple push take their relationship to the next level, and, perhaps, to the level above that with the inclusion of Kelly's girlfriends, Linda, Julie and Kathy. That Kelly and Sam would include them in their world of eroticism and intimacy illustrates how far Kelly and Sam have come and how much they have changed. Now, Kelly and Sam would even consider playing with two women they had just bet during at the “skinnydipping” swimming hole.
Unlike other authors whose work fades a bit with a second or third novel, Freier was strong out of the box and continues to write at the same or a higher level in “Experiences: Weekend.” It is quite a tale and a very good read that explores a very intimate topic. It is the kind of topic where one wants to look away to give the characters their privacy, but you can't as you always keep looking back wondering what is next. I have a feeling that with the way Freier handles Kelly, Sam and friends that the “next” will be very interesting and I can hardly wait to read it.
