Novels focusing on women who are unabashedly focused in their sexuality (without making them demons, goddesses, witches, succubae, etc.) are very rare, in my experience. Allegra Adams is just such a woman and quite a bit more. She’s highly intelligent, resourceful, cunning, clever and an undeniable beauty. She takes men and leaves them, not for any sense of domination, power or cruelty but because she genuinely appreciates sexual activity with men and doesn’t see why she can’t have her cake and eat it, too.

Where the book falls down is its almost relentless propagating of her worldview. Often it tells rather than shows Ms. Adams’s philosophy. Also Ms. Adams displays palpable disdain about women who don’t behave as she does. While she can be kind towards women and have friends among them, you read again and again her impatience with women who allow themselves to be dominated by men. Women who are the victims of abuse garner little sympathy from her, making her out to be as lacking in empathy as men who believe that females who suffer such behavior are somehow “asking for it”.

The book also has numerous errors in punctuation and sentence structure, such as when two characters speak at once in the same paragraph. Evidently, Ms. Adams feels such matters to be unimportant, since she puts such carpings in the mouth of one of the least sympathetic characters in the book, a stereotypically angry and hostile lesbian. Such a mindset is inexcusable in any proper author; she either needs to re-think this attitude or get herself a decent editor. So while this book is highly entertaining it could have been much better for a little trimming and judicial proofreading.
