Trapper and Emmaline (part 1: The Great Experiment)
Trapper and Emmaline are two college students inventing a new way to be in love. Trapper thinks himself as a little dark when it comes to love. He's liked the girls that he has been with in the past but no one can seem to break through to the real him. Until he meets Emmaline. She is a beautiful girl who seems full of fun. As their relationship turns from friends to lovers, Trapper wants to bring his sweet innocent Emmaline into his dark fantasies. And even as he is suggesting some pretty crazy, kinky escapades for her she seems to be all for it. As the weeks go by their adventures escalate until all of Manhattan becomes part of their foreplay. They use all the people around them to play their sexual games. As Trapper pushes her to do more and more teasing in public, she seems to be loving it. Soon Trapper starts to feel that he is no longer in control of their game when she starts to push the limits of her sexual teasing without him. He feels things slipping away and wonders if they will survive all the pitfalls of this new kind of relationship they have created.
Review: This book was an interesting read. It is written from Trappers perspective. It does seem, at times, that the story is more about the experiment than about the couple and their relationship. But having said that, I was very much interested to see what they would come up with next to push the limits of their sexual games and I was drawn into the excitement, wondering if they would be able to push further in the game. Overall, it was a good book that made me want to read the next installment of The Great Experiment.
