Synopsis from Goodreads:

"You're going to here at the Center for a few months. It's going to be the most enlightening experience of your life. When it's over, you'll be returned to where you taken from—a different woman."

Young and beautiful Andrea is, without warning, whisked away to a secret location, where a mysterious group devotes itself to the pursuit of sexual enlightenment through the use of many sensual techniques. Gradually, she's introduced to the ways of the Center by the people that gladly occupy it. Her sense of self and her understanding of sexuality are profoundly challenged, leading her to a new understanding of herself and the deepest sexual satisfaction.

Andrea at the Center, previously published by Masquerade in the 90's, has been fully revised with titillating updates for our Pink Flamingo readers! J.P. Kansas will thrill you with his stunning tale of straight, lesbian and gay sex, bondage, exhibitionism and all sorts of sex toys and dolls! The excitement does not stop there, however. Andrea's experiences are sure to arouse every fetish; from spanking and collars to threesomes and voyeurism. Andrea at the Center has everything you want in an erotic novel and more!

Adult-content rating: This book contains content considered unsuitable for young readers 17 and under, and which may be offensive to some readers of all ages.

My Review:

This story definitely has a WTF factor, but OMG is the writing ever vivid (and it’s causing me to write in IM). There are certain scenes that definitely draw you in, but the story becomes a bit repetitive. It’s one of those stories that you can pick up at any point and read from there without having missed much of anything. It’s a brilliant read if you are looking for n erotic story that you can breeze through without having to think.

The very minimal character development in this novel makes it really hard to get into the story. There’s no history or personalities to work with. I know character development in erotica stories isn’t paramount, but as a reader I need something. Also, at times the author begins to give personal details about a character or to develop them, only to stop part way through. The author also seemed to do the same thing with the story line itself. At times she would flip away from the erotic portions to begin telling the storyline that wound throughout, only to stop part way through. I think I spent more time trying to figure out what was going on than enjoying the story. By the end I still didn’t really understand the overall picture.

I will say this. The story was well written and edited. The author’s tone and writing style draws you in and she’s not afraid to tackle the unapproachable or taboo subjects. A final note on this story, although it is almost strictly erotica, there is an overwhelming sense of acceptance throughout. Nothing and no one is ostracized for their preferences. Everything (and I mean EVERYTHING) is accepted and even encouraged.
