I wanted to like this book more than I did, and I admit I kept reading in the hope it would get better. It certainly had potential.

Ultimately two issues interfered with this story fulfilling its potential.

The first, and most significant problem, is the use of far too many point of view characters in such a short story. I didn't get attached to any of them, which means I didn't care how it turned out. None of the characters were fully developed, and as a result many of the characters, including Linda and Mike, feel internally inconsistent.

The second problem is that this story was schizophrenic about what it wanted to be. It hinted at being erotica, but never really followed through. While it's possible for a story/novella/novel to be multi-genre, this one never committed enough to any of them to work.

I read this as a free download on my Amazon Kindle.
