Not super impressed. The book was too short - we were told about her broken heart, how she sat in her window seat, alone and depressed, but it had little impact. I never SAW how badly she was wounded so her metamorphosis was lost on me, the catharsis wasn't meaningful. I didn't see how poorly she was treated, so I couldn't empathise and extrapolate to understand her pain and revel in her freedom.

She also spent too little time with the Doctor and too few words were exchanged to make me believe sh

Let me first say that I almost didn't finish reading this book because I wasn't sure that I even liked it. It felt like all the story was about was sex, but the more in depth your read, you could see the psychological aspect of it. During certain points of the book, you want to slap some sense into Zoe and ask why the heck are you doing this?

Zoe is a waitress who has had her heart broken in the past. It has taken her almost a year to get over her ex throwing her out. She now has some self esteem

Exhibition. Voyeurism. Not Elliot Mabeuse's best work. But still sexy, and hot erotica.

I blew hot and cold on this book all the way through. There were some really tense sexual moments which I liked. It plays with the readers morals on a few occasions and I loved the whole idea of the experiment.

A good read but the ending was a little too quick and predictable for me. I would like to have seen a longer twist to the end and a little more depth to the characters.

On the whole this is worth a look.
I don't even know how to rate that. It was weird... Not in a bad or good way, just kinda weird. I was laughing when I was sure it wasn't supposed to be a funny part.

Zoe's one young waitress with a broken heart. She's chosen to be part of a sexual experiment (Being paid). She doesn't know who's running the show, or what's the purpose. Only thing she knows is that she need the money, and is curious about the "Doctor" who coordinates it all. As time goes by, the Doctor make her perform in sexual si

Hmm lets just say, I've never had a do not finish but this was super close. I was like ok what am I'm reading? oh wait a sicko and I wouldn't even classify as erotica ~ then no epilogue I wouldn't recommend to anyone even if u see it free somewhere. Thumbs down. The only thing I was left with was wtf did I just read

Parts of this book I really liked. It has an interesting story, different. I just didn't feel as if the characters were developed enough. Not enough interaction between then to justifiy the attraction or bond. Would have loved more to make it seem real. Good start and rushed ending.

An unusual storyline, but highly erotic in a deviant voyeuristic way. A fab read throughout, I would highly recommend.

Well written and occasionally hot, but I expected more from the setup.

It was ok... Was slow to get into and seem a little redundant. The plot was good but did not flow fast enough for me.

“Her arousal shocked her. It went against everything she believed in to act like a man’s slave and yet this was different. Just like her sexuality was his creation, this erection was hers. She owned it, she’d given it life.” 2 likes
