Erotic Thriller - for sexual
Reviewed by Jen
A very interesting book that adds seduction, attraction, and thrill all
together - Baldwin does a good job of intertwining all of these features.
It is a story about a businesswoman named Mimi, who is safely engaged.
She works with Jake, who she notices when he slips into the limo of a
famous client. She is intrigued by why Jake is there and wants to know
more about him. Jake invites her to his place for a few nights of seduction.
Meanwhile, there is someone else who is infatuated with Mimi, who notices
the time that she spends time with Jake, and decides to get even.
"Jake & Mimi"
was very well written, and has a very realistic plot, along with good
descriptions of New York City. The mystery, however, could have been introduced
sooner in the story. The ending seemed a little open and to leave the
reader hanging without a real conclusion.
The sexual content is
very respectfully written, with no harsh words, and leaves a lot to the
reader's imagination to picture what exactly is going on. There is a little
sadism and masochism, but nothing that would repulse most readers. The
story is very easy to understand and read.
