The Suncoast Society throws a party, and as usual there’s plenty of kink in it. For Kinko de Mayo, the group meets, gathers, talks, jokes, and enjoys a wide range of BDSM activities and equipment.

The book opens well, introducing some previously met characters and a source of conflict right from the very start. That issue resolves at the very end of the book. Meanwhile the characters party, and share with each other, and the reader gets to follow the various scenarios, catching up on characters they’ve met in previous books, and finding out what they’re doing, as well as watching them relax, play, seeing them try out new things, grow and develop, and interact with and help each other.

The basic outline of the story is very simple. Throw a whole group of people from previous books together at a party. A BDSM party is sure to have sex, toys, equipment and everything to make BDSM and erotic romance readers happy. But it also has an opportunity for people to sit and to talk, to share, to wrestle with issues and to come to conclusions.

Setting up a scenario like this and handling it so very well highlights the true professionalism of a very good writer. The book could so easily have ended up a mishmash of disconnected fragments. Yet Tymber Dalton doesn’t disappoint. She weaves all the threads together with ease, leaving the reader turning the last page with a very happy smile on her face. It’s an absolute delight to read such a good book by an author of such high caliber.

This is an objective review and not an endorsement of this book.
