Audible. ebook also available via Kindle Unlimited.
Note: Lucy is an erotic romance novella meant for 18+ adult readers only. This novella is roughly 13,000 words and contains a variety of group M/F, M/M, M/M/F, M/F/M, and F/F scenes. This novella does not contain any BDSM in any real sense, and has new-adult-aged characters in a college setting.
Born into a strictly religious family, nineteen-year-old Lucy Whitman likes to think she’s gotten past her stifling upbringing. After all, she’s not a virgin. But when her best guy friend of ten years admits he’s part of a community with an “open-door policy” on sex, Lucy is intrigued. She’s always wanted Rylan with a fierceness bordering on obsession, but he has never treated her as anything other than a sister.
Getting him to agree to take her may be her only shot at having him in her bed, but Rylan’s reluctant agreement comes with three stipulations.
One: she can’t tell anyone.
Two: she’ll have to be okay with him being her main partner, even if it’s completely weird for them both.
Three: she has to do anything he tells her to—no questions asked.
Lucy knows promising to obey is her best chance to venture outside the box. Now if she can only find the courage to let go of her inhibitions, she’ll have the perfect opportunity to discover her true self while going after exactly what she wants—Ry.
Point of view:
3rd person. All from Lucy’s perspective.
This is a little outside my normal listen in that I generally like more “story” to anything I listen to. I received a copy of the second book in the Open Door Policy series from Anna Ambrose and my personal preference is to listen to things in order, so I borrowed this from Audible Escape.
Outside the introductory chapter, this is all sex. This isn’t a club in the general understanding of sex clubs. It’s a converted house that a group of friends use to come together on a regular basis and participate in a variety of experiences. It’s definitely a quick and hot listen.
We learn a little about a few other people, but especially Xander & Liam who are the main characters in the next book: Xander.
I enjoyed JD Elcie’s narration.
About the author:
Anna Ambrose is a newish author who works too many hours a day at her real job while also ruling the roost of a brood of rowdy children. When she’s not dealing with clients, tying shoes, or fixing snacks, she hides behind her computer screen to type out sexy stories about boys kissing boys, girls kissing girls, and every combination in between. Having to shield her screen from little peeping eyes keeps her up late most nights as she spins tales about characters who aren’t afraid to shed their inhibitions and fulfill their every fantasy on the way to finding their happily ever afters.
It’s Anna’s hope that her readers can escape from their normal lives into deliciously naughty ones that cause pink cheeks and clenched thighs in public… and closed doors and one-handed reading in private.
