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

 Kelly and Sam continue to expand their sexual horizons by including Kelly’s open-­‐minded friends in their fetish play. As Kelly learns more about her past and sets her sights on the future, Sam grows in his acceptance of gay and bisexual relationships. After Kelly and her friends give Sam a memorable birthday party, Sam designs a submission challenge for them. The friends bring their own spirit and enthusiasm to the session, surprising Sam and Kelly with their openness. The event becomes a competition, as Kelly’s friends cope with more and more outrageous experiences. The group learns that each of Kelly’s friends has her limits.

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 6 is 120,000 words, 15 chapters, 390 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’ve read and reviewed all the previous installments in the Experiences series, and so far I’ve been surprised by the author’s creativity and her ability to keep on adding depths and layers to these characters and their relationships. I looked forward to reading Friends’ Experience, and it certainly was no dissapointment.

Like in the other books in the series, we follow Sam and Kelly as they expand their sexual horizons. They’ve been through a lot together, the two of them, and they have a strong connection, and mutual trust between them, which makes it possible for them to experience with other people too, in particular Kelly’s friends. While this installment, like the title suggests, focuses more on Kelly’s friends than on her and Sam, that doesn’t mean they don’t play a part at all, just maybe not as intense as in the previous books. What’s interesting here is that, while the other books have a very heavy focus on Kelly and Sam, here we don’t just see Kelly’s friends, Linda, Julie and Kathy in their relationship to one another but also to Kelly-Sam, thus creating a relationship that goes multiple ways and includes multiple people. We already saw part of that in the previous book, “Birthday Experiences”, but it’s even more prominent here.

It takes a skilled author to pull that off, and Simone Freier is definitely a skilled author. The entire atmosphere of the book is non-judgemental and forgiving, and it’s about love, friendship and respect more than it’s about sex, although, rest assured, sex plays a significant role too.

The book also focuses on some real life issues the characters face, like how Kelly wonders if Sam, despite being sexually open, is open on an emotional level. There’s also a submission challenge for Kelly’s friends that shows sides of them I never expected to see. We see the characters in a different daylight, once again examining their strengths and weaknesses, but this time even more up close.

It’s hard to keep rating the books because in my opinion, they just keep getting better and better. If Simone Freier writes an even better one next time, I’ll have run out of stars to give.
