This is one of those books that timing I am sure is everything. After my last 3 weeks in the Flesh Cartel series this one fell short for me. And strangely I found myself mostly aroused. Should I feel disturbed? I am honestly not sure what my reaction should be. If I am supposed to feel arousal then the first 80% of this worked for me. However the last 20% just fell flat. There was really nothing earth shattering about the ending and was not near as fucked up as the ending I had created in my own mind. Actions from both parties seemed out of character with what occured the rest of the book and therefore it was even more difficult to believe. Oh well...the illustrations were quite beautiful and I wish more book had these additions.
