Amazon Review 12/13 Although this book contains some of the most well written, sexy smut I've ever read, the characters and the story can stand on their own. I absolutely love this book, and whilst I rarely openly profess to enjoy such saucy literature, I regularly find myself recommending this book to friends. It's moving, emotionally and sexually. Enjoy!
Latest review listed on Amazon and my question
'So many genres collide here to extreme effect. Romance, erotica, family, culture, place and more. It makes for an intensely human book. The characters don't arrive, they feel like they have been there forever. If you don't know your cultures, Kiwi, Aussie, Indian, Rastafarian, this will encourage you too read about them. The sex scenes are tender & endearing,and no I'm not going to tell you about the avocado. I admire the way the author gets I to the skin of her characters, really making them flesh with a combination of reality and myth. This is educated erotica, superb.'
@loveleov: So did you like the ending? @WSHW1996 yes. Completely. I should have read Avocado sooner but when I did I got sucked in. Nothing was going to disrupt that read! All superb. It was real & completely lovely. Pain, happiness, desire, all the emotions. I adored this, the best of yours I've read.
