I'm at 70% and I'm torn about whether to continue or give up.

I'm not a BDSM fan, but this was rec'd by someone (can't remember who!) who suggested that it was a fresh take on the fetish. Usually, BDSM scenes just leave me cold - here's some people getting turned on by some stuff I don't really find hot, blah blah. But the scene I'm reading right now is making me really, really angry...

I don't like either of the male leads, so that's not good, but I don't generally like male leads in BDSM books.

So, I don't usually do reviews, because they're not my thing, but since this is a brand-new title and I liked it, I'll give it a try. (Gotta support indie authors!)

Without spoiling too much, because I don't like that in reviews I read, the romance elements in this book are stronger than the sci-fi ones. I wasn't disappointed by the SF subplot, but I definitely feel the romance (and the sex scenes, whew!) was the more-fully-realized of the two story arcs.

Some of that may be because I found Finley

Eidolon is concise when it needs to be but lush where it counts. It also managed to hold my rapt attention for two days despite the fact that I: a) have only a passing interest in BDSM literature, b) have little interest in heterosexual scenes, and c) have never read a romance novel before. The near future setting didn't require loads of exposition while still allowing Duvall to play with some light sci-fi elements: androids, artificial intelligence, and self-driving cars. The twists (one semi-p ...more

Overall, it is a very good read. Aside from a few grammatical mistakes here and there, the writing flows very well. At first I was a bit confused as the contents and the title didn't seem to match but eventually it all made sense. So good job overall.

I love the way Lily and Declan were gradually opened up to us readers. Lily especially.

Most often in these kinds of books, the sex gets repetitive so kudos for keeping it entertaining and keeping the sex and play from looping.

I believe this is one
