Allyson James - Rees: tales of the Shareem
“The Shareem. Males are created to be tall, muscled, sexy and ... enhanced. They come in one of three levels – pure sensual pleasure, games and wicked fun, or the ultimate barbarian – complete with whip. They know how to bring a woman to ecstasy and exactly how to keep her there.”
Lady Talan d’Urvey is an high-born lady who follows the Way of the Star, that means separating mind and body so that the mind can function at its highest level possible. After she read the wicked adventures of a high-born lady with a Shareem she decides that she wants to experience this herself before she dedicates herself totally to the Way of the Star and gives up all carnal pleasures. She goes in search for a Shareem and finds Rees.
Rees is an experiment among the Shareem, he is all the Shareem levels combined and more. No one really knows what he is capable of. He has long blond hair, is tall, muscled and is of course very handsome. When he meets Talan he is intrigued, he wants her in a way he himself doesn’t even understand. He teaches her how it is to be with a man, how to love. But he is afraid to lose his restraint with her, a Shareem is always in control with a woman....
Talan falls in love with Rees, she wants him to stay. But high-born ladies do not associate with the Shareem. Rees doesn’t understand where his fascination with her comes from, according to all books a Shareem can’t fall in love, they were only made to please women. Could they be in love and have a happy ending, he dare not risk it, he already lost control once....
This book is classified as E (E-rotic). That means that the love scenes are explicit, leave nothing to the imagination and are high in volume per the overall word account. If you don’t like male male female love scenes, you should not read this book, if you don’t mind these kind of scenes this is a fun story to read.
This tale is an easy read. Yes, there are a lot of love scenes but it did not bother me at all. They were not annoying to read, I like them! There is still a story to read, it is not as if the love scenes take over the story completely. Miss James writes passionate, sensual and humorous dialogues and I like her style. Her characters Talan and Rees are very likeable and so is Rio as secondary character. I really like to read his tale as well. So I enjoyed this book very much and will definitely read other stories by Miss James.
