Will I continue this series?  There is only a prequel about how Poesy and Low met and got together…It’s called Poesy.

So…it all comes down to the marrow of the story.  The question is did it deliver?  As my overall rating suggests, it was only so-so for me, somewhat yes and somewhat no.  We meet Low and Poesy after they have a relationship.  Their love already exists and I felt cheated, I would have liked to see that develop to that stage.  This is actually what the prequel is, which I’ve mentioned above.  I don’t know if I want to read the prequel after the fact, though.

Overall, this has some sweet moments and some that are suspenseful too.  I’m just feeling fairly meh about this one.  The narration for this is excellently done, though, by Aaron Shedlock.  I would definitely listen to him again.

⇝Sex Factor⇜ 

Yes, and it is explicit, but it’s not overly explicit.
