The sexy sequel to Primula Bond’s Sunday Times Top 20 bestseller, The Silver Chain.
Review: I was very much looking froward to this sequel. When i read the first book, The Silver Chain, I knew it was part of a trilogy and so when I was asked if i would like to read the second in the trilogy, i jumped on the chance. I struggled to get into this a little. It took me a while to catch up with what had gone on in the previous book-even though it was only a couple of months since i had read The Silver Chain, this is definitely a sequel where you need to have read book one in the trilogy to make sense of book two. I found the storyline a little difficult to follow throughout the book, i think maybe i should have re-read the first in the trilogy before carrying on with this second book. It was great to revisit the characters though and cousin Polly gets much more of a main role in this novel.
The setting has changed, Serena and Gustav are now in New York, they also travel to Venice for part of the novel, and Serena's antics around The Big Apple were thoroughly entertaining, it made for a great backdrop! The storyline with Serena's new photographic career is much easier to follow, the things she gets up to when she is behind her camera are wonderfully voyeuristic and sometimes decidedly debauched, but provide great reading material!
The sex scenes in this novel are just as hot as in its predecessor, if not hotter! There are some fabulous descriptions of the antics Gustav and Serena get up to. There is more emphasis on swapping partners, swinging and threesomes in this book, unlike the last, and more same gender sex. All of these scenes were really well written and got me decidedly hot under the collar. They are consistently good across the whole novel!
Overall, although i found it a little difficult to follow the storyline with Gustav and Pierre, i enjoyed the second book in this trilogy and will definitely be looking forward to the last book in the trilogy!
