Beyond 50 Shades … Way Beyond!

ISLAND EXPERIENCE is an intimate exploration of kinks and fetishes by an unlikely couple, with thoughtful and philosophical discussion by the characters, and graphic descriptions of their erotic adventures.

Sam takes Kelly and her friends on a trip to a tropical island, where they not only work on their suntan, but also get tanned a few times as part of their spanking play. The friends are even more adventurous and engage in some wild times together in the beautiful island environment. Sam takes them to some places that aren’t on the usual tourist route, continuing to challenge them – and they return the ‘favor’, providing challenges for Sam, as well. The group is loving and loved, as they are now comfortable with each other in ways that most people have never experienced. What will be next for Sam, Kelly and her friends?

The Experiences series is an epic love story of erotic relationships and sexual desires. Written in a ‘literary realism’ style, the series introduces Sam in the prequel, and the blossoming of his intimate relationship with Kelly as the series progresses. Fantasies and real-world adventures coalesce to mold a unique bond between unlikely lovers. Where needs are mutually satisfied in an open, creative and trusting environment. Where physical and mental boundaries are pushed. Where the concepts of love and sex are never confused, but sometimes confusing. Where openness is required and intimacy is expected. And where fair-is-fair, regarding the punishment of transgressions.

Contemporary erotic romance: Suitable for mature readers, aged 18+ years.

Experiences: Book 7 is 139,000 words, 21 chapters, 466 print pages

This work contains mature content, including graphic sexual descriptions and scenes, and is provided for adults only. The Experiences series contains scenes of psychological and physical submission, discipline, and medical fetish. The characters explore various fetishes, which evolve throughout the series. ALL CHARACTERS IN THE BOOK ARE 21 YEARS OLD OR OLDER, and all activities are consensual.

I previously read and reviewed the other installments in this series: First Experience, Weekend Experience, Birthday Experience, European Experience and Friends’ Experience. I enjoyed every single book in the series, so I was looking forward to reading this next installment.

Sam and Kelly, although Sam is a lot older than Kelly, have a strong and loving relationship. They see each other as equals, and handle each other with respect. The book, as the others in the series, switches from Kelly’s POV to Sam’s POV. Although the book is part of a series, I wouldn’t say you had to read each installment to enjoy this one, although it does help to show Sam and Kelly’s journey.

In this installment, Island Experience, Sam has brought Kelly and her friends to an exotic island, where they explore even more of their deepest desires and forbidden fantasies. I enjoyed getting to know Kelly’s friends better – I have a pretty good idea of Kelly and Sam at this point, but her friends are still somewhat of a mystery. Connecting with them also makes it easier to see the full picture of Sam, Kelly and their relationship, which also includes some fun with her friends once in a while.

The book doesn’t shy away from pulling readers out of their sexual comfort zone, but in a good way. They make you wonder the possibilities when you think beyond the boundaries of what society tries to inflict upon us.

As usual, the writing is great, and the characters are engaging. If you want erotic romance that really lets you connect to the characters, I recommend this one.
