Wild sex adventures and orgies mix with scientific discovery at Siberia University

Encounter the naughty side of life at the university in Siberia where, like at most colleges, anything goes: sexual adventures, orgies, and more. Alex’s academic work there is cutting edge. It enables top scientists to produce the first information storage discs that herald a new era: the computer age.

Experience the enticing Tel Aviv singles scene

Then take a peek at the wildness and intensity of the life of young people in Israel. Edith’s daughter, Ruth, moves in with her boyfriend in Tel Aviv, leaving Edith very lonely. In her daughter’s neighborhood, Edith discovers a group of young former soldiers in the big city for the first time, for better or for worse. They attend university by day and pour drinks by night.

Can Edith induce her lover to leave all else and fulfill their shared destiny?

“Why am I alone, actually? I’m always alone. Inside this great love”, Edith muses. She presents her lover, Alex, with an ultimatum: He must leave his wife and family and come live with her. Will Edith finally fulfill what she believes to be her destiny and have her beloved all to herself?

I previously read and reviewed the first three books in the series: Joy & Survival and Mystery & Survival were both 3 star reads and the third book, Charm & Survival, was a 3.5 star read for me. After enjoying the series so far, I was looking forward to reading book number four, Magic & Survival. And guess what? The book didn’t dissapoint at all. In fact, it was my favorite of the series.

In this book, Edith’s daughter Ruth has moved in with her boyfriend, leaving Edith rather lonely. On top of that, Alex is still officially married to his wife… And Edith feels very alone and like no one understands her. She wants Alex to break up with his wife, and leave his family… But will Alex make that choice? And if he doesn’t, will Edith be strong enough to move on? And if he does… Will they be strong enough to be together, and be the epic love Edith so desires?

I loved this book, and how it brought the relationship of Edith and Alex to the next level, and really forced Edith to think about her priorities and what she wants in life, and in love. She was less naive here than she was in the previous books, which was a welcome change too. With several hot and steamy scenes, it’s an excellent erotic romance story.
