3 1/2 stars. I usually prefer erotica with a more romantic framing than this has but I have to say, it's just gloriously filthy. I'm rating it down some because the plot is abrupt and confusing; it felt like important parts were left out. Reviewers often complain about Stein's stream of consciousness narrations, but this is the first time I've ever found one of her books hard to follow. Everything's that left is smokin' hot, though.
