The White Room – a STEAMY Contemporary Romance from USA Today Bestselling Author, CM Albert
“What we do behind closed doors reveals the naked truth of who we really are.”
The rules are simple:
They’re put into place to protect us—exclusive clients lucky enough to afford the cost of playing. But everyone knows some rules are made to be broken. When hearts and bodies collide, even the best intentions slip away…exposing the real reasons why we seek the White Room in the first place. Will the White Room set you free? Step inside and find yourself.
This is not a book you binge read. It’s meant to be savored, read chapter by chapter when you’re in the right frame of mind… ya, sorry, I can’t even type this with a straight face.
This was erotica, pure erotica. It is beautifully written, and tastefully taboo but my goodness. *fans*
Let me be very, very clear, this book was 95% sex. Had anyone asked what I was reading, there’s no way I would have been able to dress it up and make it appropriate for public conversation.
I think I should start at the beginning. The White Room is a place where men and women pay a steep fee to spend two hours acting out their naughty fantasies. There are fake names and the expectation you’ll never see that person again. The characters are free to enjoy themselves without worrying about anything else.
There was some relationship and character building in the 5% that wasn’t naughty shenanigans. The author did a remarkable job at letting me empathize with the characters.
The whole concept of The White Room is quite taboo. It’s one of those things, most people wouldn’t admit to using. No doubt such an admission would be met with judgment. After the first chapter, I even thought “not for me but I’m glad they enjoy it,” and “that’s a lot of money to spend just to get laid.”
So I have to give the author credit, by the third chapter I was empathizing with the characters and my thoughts were more along the lines of “I’d be there too if I was in her situation.” Considering how little of the book she had to do this in I have to applaud her.
My favorite part of this book is the way each chapter could stand on its own. Each incorporated different fantasies and play. They could skip the chapters or read out of order to suit your fancy.
That goes hand in hand with my only real complaint, I wish there were headings telling the reader what fantasies are featured in each chapter. Some things don’t work for everyone…
Anyway, The White Room was a well-written piece of erotic literature. I would recommend it to anyone looking for a new bath time read. I would also strongly encourage you to lock the door before you turn your Kindle on. 😉
