When Lara dies at the hands of a Manhattan lawyer during a sex game, his defense attorney, Carl, hires Simone, a psychiatrist, professor and author of books on sexual behavior to help him buttress his argument that Lara’s death was accidental. To help his defense, Carl’s client has written a detailed account of his steamy, year-long relationship with Lara. Carl gives the text to Simone for analysis. While evaluating the presumed killer’s writing, Simone continues to receive psychiatric patients with sexual disorders and unusual fantasies, and to research strange sexual behavior for her next book. Meanwhile, Simone’s clinical partner, friend and research colleague, Edward, is working with the police to capture a serial killer who is torturing and killing women. From hot and unusual sex and interesting psychiatric patients, to the swing houses of New York and Paris, this fast-paced page-turner is a blend of mystery, suspense, humor, romance and erotica.

My Take on the Book:
There were times where I admired Simone Bennet; and though I enjoyed the story on the whole, I wasn't the hugest fan of the erotica pieces that popped up in places throughout the book. I also found Peter intriguing at a point as well, but then by the end of the book he didn't appeal to me anymore. I ended up giving this book a four star rating and got a copy in exchange for an honest review.
Even though I wasn't the hugest fan of the erotica pieces, I find that the author does have a very good story-line to the book as well as writing in general, so I'll definitely be keeping an eye on this author.
