Aside from writing, my favorite part of being an author is seeing readers make a personal connection to the characters. So I’m over the moon today because of the Mary’s Menage Whispers review of Crossing the Lines (Neighborly Affection #2).
Mary has a heaping helping of insights to share about romance, the D/s lifestyle, and menage relationships. I’m working hard to restrain myself from quoting the whole thing here.
But I love the way she identifies with Alice:
I am not sure if I can dare to say that I completely related to the heroine and understood her so well that it was pretty scary. Her insecurities were totally mine. I swallowed them. I assimilated them.
And discusses the importance of giving bonds time to grow:
This story is all about a journey: six months with Playing the Game and almost the same with Crossing the Lines. It makes sense. Because the time was credible, I could understand the ups and downs, the evolution, the changes, the doubts and finally the acknowledgment of her feelings, of everyone’s feelings.
And addresses how Crossing the Lines depicts a D/s lifestyle:
I honestly believe that this story goes further than a romance and many women will question themselves about their own needs and sexuality. … I can promise you, if you are genuinely curious about the lifestyle, no matter if you are experienced or a newbie… you WILL love this story!
Seriously, read the whole review and you’ll have a fantastic understanding of what the Neighborly Affection series is all about. And that just makes me so happy. 🙂
