The Story of X: An Erotic Tale
Left me cold
I purchased this looking for erotic romance and was pretty disappointed. The romance aspect was ok, but the "erotic" writing left me cold. It seemed very clinical and almost as if the author was trying to follow a formula she/he was uncomfortable with. The storyline was promising and I found the best part of the book were the descriptions of Italian towns, customs and history. The mysteries were mysterious all right, it was a mystery to me that the "rituals" were ascribed any sort of power or significance. Weird, and leading to nothing as far as I could see, especially (spoiler alert) the sixth mystery. I found the whole book unsatisfying and difficult to engage with.
The Story of X: An Erotic Tale is one of best selling in Erotica category.
