really liked it

I received a free copy of this book for my honest review.

I would rate this 3.5 stars for several reasons but since I can't give half stars on GR I rounded up to 4 because it is well written. However, its not a book for me. I'm not sure what category to put it in, but I would label it a Soap Opera. By the cover, and what I was told when it was offered to me, was that this is an erotica. But that I guess depends on your definition of erotica. There are a few hot sex scenes in this really long book but you could easily take them out and still have the same book.

This is the story of lesbian love, of a girl trying to find her identity, and find that the love of her life is a friend of her aunt. But in the process of weaving this story, there is also political intrigue, nazi war criminal, and secret tribunals. There are also high society drama and international jaunts. There is so much going on that at times it was hard to keep up. However, the story has been carefully woven together so that it does come together quite nicely. It is very well written, the characters are definitely unique and its quite a story. The writing style reminded me a lot of The Great Gatsby, it had a lot of the same qualities.

If you enjoy a good Soap Opera. If you like shows such as All My Children, One Life to Live, General Hospital, etc then this is the book for you. I would suggest this to those over 18 as there are a few sex scenes but they aren't overly graphic. Overall, I thought it was a good book and great for those that enjoy a good drama.
