Accuracy of Book Profile

The book profile reflects the book, however the similarity between the book and Fifty Shades of Grey is not accurate.

Draw of Story

The characters are interesting and attractive, sex scenes are interesting and the idea of a social group being revealed in its sexual depths is enticing.

Possible Drawbacks

The characters are presented suddenly in the beginning, and as they are numerous, names and relationships can get confusing - it could be introduced in a more natural and contextualized manner. Even though Claire is sexually open and a protagonist, the tone of the narrative can be sometimes judgemental - portraying women who had many partners as low morals.

What’s New About the Story

This story is unique because it brings along homossexuality and bissexuality in a modern way, without mannerisms. It could explore the theme even deeper.

Lead Characters

Mitch Wilder is a charming, athletic man with an uncontrollable sex drive. Even though he sincerely loves Claire, he doesn't seem to be able to control himself when it comes to women. Claire Lester is an attractive woman that, even though shown to be naive, has a high sexual drive and has many layers that differ her from typical female protagonists. Tom is an interesting character which struggles to assume his homossexuality even though he finds himself in a love triangle with his brother and Claire.

Uniqueness of Story

The story could be improved bringing along better character introduction and development of relation between all. The core story, also, could be more enticing.
