"You're going to here at the Center for a few months. It's going to be the most enlightening experience of your life. When it's over, you'll be returned to where you taken from—a different woman."
Young and beautiful Andrea is, without warning, whisked away to a secret location, where a mysterious group devotes itself to the pursuit of sexual enlightenment through the use of many sensual techniques. Gradually, she's introduced to the ways of the Center by the people that gladly occupy it. Her sense of self and her understanding of sexuality are profoundly challenged, leading her to a new understanding of herself and the deepest sexual satisfaction.
It's crazy to think that a place like this could really exist. This is an erotic novel- be warned if you're thinking you might escape the world of sex, oh heck no. If you think that, then you probably didn't read the blurb anyways.
It also has elements from all the sexy books out there. If you like GBLT books, or multi-partner, or hetero, it has something for everyone.
But let's not just think about this book as an erotic novel because it isn't just that. Andrea is also on a journey of self-discovery, and like many books out there, she seems to blossom under the concept of sexuality as a window into her own self. This was done in some classics like The Awakening by Kate Chopin, so don't just dismiss it because it has a lot of sex in it.
It's insane to think that someone could be kidnapped and just thrown into this kind of environment. It is the kind of book that wants you to open your world up, not just stick your head in the sand and ignore what is around you.
J.P. crafts her characters awesomely and her arcs are great. This is a good book. Erotic or not, you might enjoy it. So give it a shot.
