G60 Book Review of Sugar Baby by Aaron Powell

Name of Book: Sugar Baby

Author: Aaron Powell

ISBN: 9781482030488

Publisher: Not available (published by author?)

Type of book: Adult, threesome, sugar baby, relationship, erotica

Year it was published: 2013

Summary:

Sugar Baby – A young man or woman who receives financial compensation and/or gifts in exchange for companionship, often including favors of the sexual nature. Sugar Daddy/Sugar Mommy – A wealthy, often older man or women, who provides financial compensation and/or gifts to a Sugar Baby in exchange for companionship.

Characters:

The characters tend to lean toward fantasy type elements. We learn some of their motivations and desires, but other than that nothing at all. The reason I say "fantasy type" elements is because its hard for me to believe that there won't be jealousy or anything of the sort down the road, and few times I noticed certain things and thought of the possibility of STDs which is not mentioned in the book. (If it is okay, I'd rather not mention what things I am talking about...)

Theme:

Three way relationships can be normal.

Plot:

This is in first person narrative from Kyle's point of view. Even though this book does fall into the adult category, I think it tends to be slightly more than an adult book. The characters are portrayed as normal and very open minded, and relationship did progress quickly. While we learn some about the characters, this book isn't an exploration of three way relationships. Most of the focus is on physical aspect of this type of relationship.

Opinion:

Before reading this book, please look at the cover: "We're all adults here. Let's have some fun." Pay attention to that. The writing is engaging and the author does have talent. There is a fantasy element in the book, but don't read it unless you're an adult and you'll be comfortable with the situations presented in the book. (There are some things I felt uncomfortable with, which I'd rather not say.)

Quick notes: This was given to me by an author, thus this review will appear in its entirety on goodreads as well as the blog. I would like to thank the author for the opportunity to read this book.

4 out of 5
(0: Stay away unless a masochist 1: Good for insomnia 2: Horrible but readable; 3: Readable and quickly forgettable, 4: Good, enjoyable 5: Buy it, keep it and never let it go.)
