The following review was originally published by Tera on her Blog, A Succubi's Tale on March 17, 2017
There are secrets that even the closest of friends don’t share. It can be a crippling thing, a moment in which something happened that changes their life. Sometimes an old soul can help a young one find the way to being whole again.
If the first work was mainly centred on erotica, the second work in the series is far more concerned about developing Bonnie’s self. The book summary doesn’t really express just how involved and soul searching this part of the series for Bonnie. While there is some erotica at the beginning, that quickly is pushed aside for the sake of Bonnie herself and telling her story.
That story is a difficult one to see, it hurts a lot, and it demands that the story not be erotic or romantic. It does however demand understanding, care and the chance for redemption. Li Lu is the source for this and it comes in a way that’s gentle, caring and there’s a clear need in him to try to help Bonnie. The answer isn’t simple, she still hurts, but there’s a little bit of life, hope and even wonder in her soul when the moments pass.
Bonnie matters. She isn’t a side story here, she is the story. Stephanie is there, she’s part of the story, but as a whole, Stephanie doesn’t hold things together. She is there, she wants and desires, but that it tempered by Li Lu for Bonnie’s sake. That tells quite a lot about him, who he is. He’s not evil, far from it. That was very attractive to me and as that leads on nicely from the first work in the series, it’s good to see happen.
I felt that this work is the stronger of the two stories in many ways. From the building of the characters, to the events as they unfold. There are erotic moments, but like in the first work, they are not silly, over the top things. They make sense, they are caring, needful things and I enjoyed how the purpose of the erotica was to bring joy to all of the characters.
More focused in story, more depth given to the characters. There’s more story than erotica, which is as things should be. Telling a story, giving meaning to the characters involved, matters. Here the author did so and more.
Four and a half out of five pitchforks.
I still really want more about Li Lu, his past, where he is when he’s not with the women that called him to them. I liked this work mainly because there’s so much character development for Bonnie and every single word is filled with emotion for her. It’s not a simple path for Bonnie, it’s not a simple thing to overcome. That’s how real people are and between Bonnie and Stephanie, Bonnie becomes the far more complete character here.
A very good series, two stories that tell a complete tale. I would have liked a third part, if for no other purpose than to bring the mystery to a close somehow. It would be nice to give all of these characters a ‘happy ever-after’ somehow.
