    This story provides tasteful erotic escapism. At an exhibition of erotic art, a woman meets a stranger and they have fling. The man is the ideal partner for an enjoyable no-strings-attached affair: a cultured, considerate, courteous, virile, handsome Italian, confident without being pushy, respectful without being servile. The story is sheer escapism (in real life, such men are scarce, and most women are unlikely to meet one when he's wanted), which is exactly why this man and this story are so enjoyable.
    Personally, I would have liked to get a stronger sense of their individual personalities, though.

    Well-written erotic again by Gaines

    I've read this author's work. She is consistently a great storyteller in the genre of erotica. Erotica is a genre, like others, that you like or don't. For a reviewer to say "gross" is unfair and inappropriate. Why is it gross? The prose is well-written, kind of tongue in cheek which I feel is the author's style. An enjoyable story written by a very good storyteller. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who enjoys steamy sex and come-hither Italian men.
