You didn’t exactly show up at Club Ecstasy- San Francisco’s exclusive spa, resort and sex palace for women- to get your taxes filed.
Angela Carter can explain almost anything in a logical way, except sex. Sex is the one thing she feels like she doesn’t get. In order to learn more and make herself better at the act of sex she turns to Club Ecstasy and Brent. Brent’s job is to take Angela out of her own head and make her feel instead of think. That is quite the challenge considering her job is to think.
She never failed to plan things through: starting with an opening hypothesis, then on to systematic tests, and ending with the conclusion she expected from her experiments. Somehow, with this exercise she hadn’t prepared much of anything except for the date and how much she’d make the check our for.
Brent loves a challenge and is not afraid of women who have sexual issues. He is very attracted to Angela so teaching her how to have the ultimate orgasm will not be a hardship. After one attempt, however, the result are only deemed as adequate. Two attempts and they don’t have it quite right. Three attempts and finally it is perfect.
What happens in that room represents fantasy and Angela needs to figure out how to reproduce it in real life. Because of the situation Brent won’t be the one to give her these results again. Though a little sad, Angela will leave the club more prepared than she ever has been for that next step in her sexual life.
Total Abandon is a novella and one of three books in this series. I am not sure if the author has more planned or if any of the stories spill over into other novellas. In this one it was just Brent and Angela. Because of the storyline and the length, the book does not have a HEA ending for Brent and Angela but I don’t think that is how these books are meant to read. Angela got what she needed from Club Ecstasy and though I like the ribbons and bows on my endings, here it wasn’t necessary.
If you are looking for a hot, fast read you should definitely pick up this series. This book was well written and a fun way to spend the hour! Final grade- B-
“Romantic?” she repeated. “Nothing about this is romantic.”
“You’re wrong there, too. no woman wants to be fucked by a machine. She wants to be seduced.”
She put her hands on her hips. “So, now you’re an expert on women.”
“unless you’re a lesbian, I’ve spent more time making women happy in bed than you have.”
