I don't read much contemporary ... anything. I get bored if there isn't fantasy, honestly. Sometimes copious amounts of sex can make up for that though, and it helped that this was the perfect length for erotica (a bit over 100 pages) and that it didn't feel too short or underdeveloped.Dryden wrote this smartly and concisely and I never felt like things dragged on or that the sex got mechanical. Both characters had their strengths and weaknesses which added a bit more realism to the story than just "hot girl and hot guy have hot sex." There were a couple of things that happened sex-wise that I didn't care for, though obviously your mileage may vary. I did think that some of the side characters were a waste of space, but that's mostly because Ivan and Camilla's story was strong enough not to need them.I identified with Ivan, which probably seems like TMI, but I'm (mostly) talking about his introverted-ness. Definitely a rare occurrence for me to examine my own personality quirks while reading about a male rocket-scientist dominant.I'm really glad I gave this one a chance; it's a relatively short book with a well-fleshed out couple and a story that's neither boring nor contrived. And of course you've got the wild monkey sex. Can't go wrong there. I'll be keeping an eye out for her next release, for sure.
