Adrien is a person who is chosen to be sacrificed to the gods by his country. They believe that it's needed to bring fortune to their people. Once he is chosen, he has a year to live as a king, and entitled to the title "King of Summer" before the sacrifice takes place. He was chosen a month ago, so now he has about 11 months to live. As a 'temporary' king, he has servants, bodyguards, and so on. He can also get many things he wants, including picking people on the street to warm his bed. Usuall ...more

Would I read another of this Author works?

TOTALLY. The narration and pace were great, the characters were good, and the plot was interesting.

Why not a higher rate?

because the story was prolonged too much, I got tired of reading it.
I can say I would be satisfied without the addition of another couple in the story.

Apart of that, it was good, really. First part to the middle I would give 3 Stars.
Then in the middle to end, 1-2 Stars.

Adorable! The storyline is pretty formulaic and short, but it's well done and very enjoyable.
Though I must say that it took a while to get a good sense of time and place. And by "time" I mean I started out thinking the story was being told as things unfolded, but it turned out to be a sort of 2 perspective retrospective. It's a little odd but I've read some of the author's other works and it seems to be a common theme.
The sex is is also reasonably tasteful.
In short, it's a short but good read :)
