In my long-standing tradition of reviewing a book for what it is and not what it isn't, I'll discuss this work as erotic romance, not literary erotica. Be forewarned that I'm not a fan of erotic romance, and specifically this work hit several major pet peeves, so read this review with that in mind.

If you can completely suspend your disbelief, this story may strike you as a fun sex romp. Mandy, the main character, is a sex starved librarian in a dull relationship. He boyfriend only has sex with her on scheduled days. More than a little frustrated, how can she possibly resist the charms of a Brad Pitt look-alike library patron who wants to show her a good time? She doesn't really try. Then there's the geeky-hot co-worker Sean who has been waiting for an opportunity to pounce. As soon as he finds out that Mandy and whats-his-face the bf are splitsville, he does. Then she finds out that tightly wound neighbor James hasn't been watching her out of his upstairs window just because he wants to catch her breaking the HOA rules. Oh no. He's hunky, he has a good job, and he's not too sorry to see the bf go. What's a girl to do with so many hot suitors vying to give her the pleasure she's been denied? Sample them all, one at a time or in a group and have a ripping good time.

So there you have it - a quick fantasy read chock full of sex and various flavors of lovers to enjoy. Sort of like a snow cone - to be consumed quickly while at the beach. That may be exactly what you're looking for. It's not so much a story as a bunch of long, long sex scenes strung together with huge chunks of monologue that no real human being would ever say, spoken by characters with some irredeemable traits (and I don't mean the villain), but I think that you're supposed to overlook stuff like that. I couldn't.
